Review: YG – My Krazy Life

March 19th, 2014

The spot for gangster rappers is getting smaller and smaller. This is especially true of MCs from the west coast and particularly Compton, the cradle of gangster rap. Look at the stars the West is churning out these days: Odd Future weirdos and decidedly non-gangster Kendrick Lamar. So how does YG, a guy so dedicated […]

G-Eazy seems energetic and excited. He’s been on tour for about two weeks with sold-out shows in every city on his These Things Happen tour, named after his upcoming debut album. When I arrive, his manager informs me that G just got back the mastered version of his album, so a listening session between the […]

Lyor Cohen’s 300 label has been successful thus far. Raz Simone, being the first to partner with him, has been everywhere on your favorite blogs and even featured on Forbes. Even with all that, most of the moves the Black Umbrella team have made have been on their own. That’s what you call using your […]

February 27th, 2014

Schoolboy Q’s Oxymoron has been fighting an uphill battle since Q announced it as his follow-up to 2010’s excellent Habits & Contradictions. Oxy was initially slated for a third quarter release in 2013, then a fourth quarter release, then it didn’t have a date, and finally landed this February. Top Dawg and Schoolboy blamed the […]

Residing on the Left Coast, we have a brand new video from 19-year old emcee LaShaun Ellis titled “Soul’d Out” off of his self-titled debut mixtape. He worked strictly with producer Khompono on his debut project, the LaShaun Ellis LP, and “Soul’d Out” was certainly a stand out track. The talented duo meticulously crafted and […]

Raz Simone is three for three on the material leading up to Cognitive Dissonance Pt. 1, which now houses a March 6 release date. While the first two singles were backed up production, “They’ll Speak” mostly stays acapella. I wouldn’t count the Inception theme as much of a beat as it comes through halfway in […]

Adra Boo and Action J make up the unique duo known as Fly Moon Royalty. Seattle’s scene is known for Macklemore, Sir Mix-A-Lot’s early contributions, Nacho Picasso’s dark and lyrical style, but these two bring something new to the scene. In January, I was invited to come check out their show at Neumos that ended […]

For all the lovers in the world today, ’cause everybody needs somebody or something to love. Ne-Yo hopes to provide a short 13 minutes (see: foreplay) with four songs as part of his 3 Simple Rules EP. Each rule is laid out before the track starts as Ne-Yo ventures into the span of a relationship […]

Following his RCA Records debut, Kid Ink is living the life. A #1 single with “Show Me,” 50K sold in his first week and an upcoming tour with Los and Bizzy Crook (dates can be found after the jump). Things can’t get much sweeter at the moment. Or can they? We could have predicted a […]
