Jay 305 Ft. Joe Moses – Thuggin’ (Prod. By DJ Mustard)

Jay 305 Ft. Joe Moses – Thuggin’ (Prod. By DJ Mustard)

Jay 305 is one of those artists I want to see succeed. I’m highly anticipating his debut project, but nobody knows when it’s expected to drop. His deal with Interscope seems to be the sole reason why it didn’t drop in 2014. Instead, we’ve gotten little guest features on songs with RJ and Royce The Choice, and Chris Brown and Tyga. Both were memorable enough, but getting a new song is refreshing. “Thuggin’” is what you’d expect from something over a DJ Mustard production. Jay and Joe Moses join forces to create catchy, street music. Nothing more, nothing less. It… continue reading

EarthGang Ft. Mac Miller – Monday

EarthGang Ft. Mac Miller – Monday

EarthGang are going on tour with Fashawn very soon, so new music is kind of a standard. Seeing how they’re taking the time with their next album, the Atlanta duo is putting out Torba on Thursday. The concept is cool. It’s a seven track EP that follows the days of the week. It goes a step further as Complex puts it: “The mixtape is named after the number in Oromo, one of the oldest ethnic groups inhabiting Ethiopia—which, Earthgang says, is also the “origin with some of the baddest chicks.” It involves completion, therefore the mixtape will represent the seven days… continue reading

Big Sean – Me, Myself & I Freestyle

Big Sean – Me, Myself & I Freestyle

If this was a different era, or albums didn’t leak so early, Big Sean’s latest freestyle would be hyping up Dark Sky Paradise much more. Not discrediting what he does with Beyonce’s instrumental, because it’s still one hell of a freestyle that shows off why Sean is currently that dude. He’s been wrecking verses, and releasing hot singles. The verdict is still out on his album only to allow more listens before an opinion is formed and distributed to the internet. On “Me, Myself & I,” Sean has fun, poking fun at The Grammys and Kendrick Lamar. Both are subtle… continue reading

The Sermon’s Curation: Best Reads of the Week (2-16 to 2-22)

The Sermon’s Curation: Best Reads of the Week (2-16 to 2-22)

This week’s curation is pretty much full of Drake. Analyzing his newest mixtape, If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late, is big on the internet. Is he really a legend? What does his lyrics (not necessarily just the new tape) really mean in art form? Another big topic is Cash Money, Birdman and Lil Wayne. Learn more about the lawsuit that Weezy is serving his daddy, and debate whether Puff Daddy or Birdman is hip-hop’s biggest mogul. I also tossed in a nice profile about Colt Cabana (indie superstar), and why the X-Men don’t matter as much (and how to… continue reading

Preach On, Sermon: Finn Balor: the Future of WWE

Preach On, Sermon: Finn Balor: the Future of WWE

NXT has become one of the greatest parts about having a WWE Network subscription. Every week, that one hour of programming is perfect. There’s no filler, and several matches allow the wrestlers we want to see on screen. Whether we’re looking for Sami Zayn, Tyler Breeze, Charlotte, Bayley, etc. There’s a wide range of developmental talent that is somehow overshadowing every other WWE-related show. All praise goes to Triple H and his team for being able to deliver an amazing product without having to overdo anything. I like to think only being on air for an hour is a huge… continue reading
