The Sermon’s Curation: Best Reads of the Week (1-19 to 1-25)

It might be Lil Wayne week on The Sermon’s Curation. Having such a powerful presence in hip-hop means that the world is here to dissect any work he releases to the public.

In addition to that, pieces about how to win the Royal Rumble, a lost A$AP Yams interview, a look at Fabolous’ highs and lows in his career, and more are included. The Foolproof Guide To Winning The Royal Rumble: It’s… continue reading

Preach On, Sermon: The Metamorphosis of Mac Miller

Preach On, Sermon: The Metamorphosis of Mac Miller

Since 2008, I’ve supported the potential future in artists. The up and comers that fill my iTunes with music I enjoy. In the seven years, I couldn’t predict who would be on and who wouldn’t. I could only do my part to support music I believed in. If you asked me who I wanted to see win in the music industry, I wouldn’t have told you who actually did end up making it. No artist I’ve supported has had such an epic journey like Mac Miller. In fact, during The Illspoken days, Beedie would’ve been my choice for a break-out… continue reading

Preach On, Sermon: My 2015 Is Tech N9ne Meets ’09 Drake

As many who frequent the site can tell, I’m a fan of writers. I love reading articles whenever I can. I dedicate a good chunk of my Twitter favorites to saving some of these pieces for later. During one of my sit-down and read periods, DJ Booth’s staff were running down their New Years Resolutions. I think I’ve thought about this year more than previous years. It’s about to be a big, important year for me. I’m graduating in April with a Bachelor’s in Creative Writing from Full Sail University, and I’m scared. I’m fearful for what the future holds…. continue reading

The SD Staff’s Favorite Albums of 2014

The SD Staff’s Favorite Albums of 2014

Over here at SD we wanted to wait to publish our top ten albums lists in case anyone needed room for a late addition of The Pinkprint (they didn’t). Anyway, the lists represent our writers’ eclectic tastes, along with our collective genius/stupidity. Here are the lists. Sermon: 10. Kevin Gates – Luca Brasi 2 This is how 2015 is looking: “if a bad bitch with a thick ass, whip dick out while she talking.” We have to be bold, and it’s all thanks to Kevin Gates. In all seriousness, Luca Brasi 2 had some big shoes to fill. The first… continue reading
