Free Album: Dom Deshawn – Moods & Interludes

Dom Deshawn is the type of rapper you grow to love, because he says a lot of things relatable to your life. This is not an artist you turn up to in the club. This is someone you listen to on the bus heading to work staring out the window, or even when you smoke because he’s got that relaxing vibe. He’s a human who reflects on relationships, trying to make it, and other topics in his music. He does so in a professional sounding manner as Moods & Interludes is the prime example. The 12-track free album comes with… continue reading

French Montana & Harry Fraud – The Appetizer EP

French Montana & Harry Fraud – The Appetizer EP

Peanut butter and jelly. Peter Griffin and Brian. Summer and high temperatures. Scooby and Shaggy. Making a list of some of the best duos in the universe would be impossible, but there’s one thing certain. French Montana and Harry Fraud would make it. Their entire careers have played off each other. Harry got noticed as French got bigger, and French needed Harry to get bigger. Their sounds compliment each other. French had hoped to have Mac & Cheese 4: The Album out in 2014, but it’s not happening. Whatever the reason for the delay is, he chose to do what… continue reading

Review: Nicki Minaj – The Pinkprint

Review: Nicki Minaj – The Pinkprint

And so it came to pass that we would round out what turned out to be a very strange 2014 with Nicki Minaj’s The Pinkprint. Her sophomore effort, Roman Reloaded, earned her many detractors. Nicki needed a W this time around, and pretty much got one. The Pinkprint is her best album yet, and even whens Nicki missteps, her rapping highlights are enough reason to stick around. To say that she’s the best female rapper would be true, but we’d be remiss if we didn’t put her up there with the best currently doing it. She’s still not as consistent… continue reading

Video: Mod Sun Ft. Travis Barker – Never Quit

Video: Mod Sun Ft. Travis Barker – Never Quit

Ode to Marijuana songs are nothing new. We’ve been getting them since the ’90s and won’t stop until the end of music. Some in this generation are creative, while others are less-than-memorable. Someone like Kid Cudi can create the melodic “Marijuana” and sound different than anybody else making weed raps. Wiz Khalifa, Snoop Dogg, Curren$y, etc. The list goes on. At the forefront of the hippy-hop movement, Mod Sun tries his hand at it with “Never Quit.” Infusing the obvious Rock elements that come from using Travis Barker, Mod Sun’s “Never Quit” is a fun track and video. The two… continue reading

Tuge Addresses Racial Tensions In “Clean Clothes” Video

Any artist that is taking time to talk about what’s going on in America should be appreciated.

Album Review: J. Cole – 2014 Forest Hills Drive

Album Review: J. Cole – 2014 Forest Hills Drive

A wise man once said, “Cole under pressure, what that make? Diamonds.” This man was Jermaine Cole, and the year was 2011 prior to his debut album. Since that moment, it seems like Cole is constantly living that phrase. He is living in the shadow of his older work in hopes that the North Carolina native can up the ante with his next projects. Instead of opting for the traditional route of releasing an album, J. Cole’s 2014 Forest Hills Drive follows a unique pattern that’s not ground-breaking but seldom seen in hip-hop. November 17 was the day that J…. continue reading
