Browsing: Artist Spotlight

This weekend was a real reflective weekend. I went through all of my music and realized that I need to add someone new to the mix. So that’s where the thought can’t into my mind. I need to put Tink on my phone. I’ve heard quite a few tracks from the young lady and I know that she’s dope. Not only can she sing, but she can also put on the hoodie and spit like nobody’s business. That’s what originally attracted me to Tink, the lyrical onslaught that such a young person could bring. We all know that Timbaland has cosigned…

Attention Mrs. Carter, New music is needed. It’s been two years since the release of your last album and I think I speak for everyone when I say that new music is a must. You completely changed the way that album’s are released by dropping your last album out of no where. I myself was not sure if it was even real, but after clicking on the album I heard music and confirmed that in fact you did shock the world. We all sat around and listened in a daze, still shocked, it was as if we woke up far…

As we all have heard, the Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj so called “feud” was dominating radio and television. Luckily this did not last long. You want to know why, because Taylor called Nicki and actually talked everything out. WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT! Talking to someone really does resolve so many issues, but people refuse to do it and it’s frustrating. This article could be strictly about these two but I think there is a bigger meaning in this situation. Taylor Swift called and talked to Nicki instead of letting things get out of control, and those two understood each…

Lately I’ve been in a mood to listen to Lupe’s first two albums. It’s simply amazing how these two albums are just as relevant to today’s day and time as they were back when he first dropped. Lupe put out two albums that are classic. Albums that highlight a struggle that is still going on to this day. Mr. Fiasco, I’ve got to say that as I’ve gotten older I’ve really come to appreciate these timeless albums. Food and Liquor, with the intro track he lets you know what this album is about. On one side you’ve got your food,…

Now that Drake has finally announced that views from the 6 will be dropping on September 24th, we need to have a serious discussion. Over the past year, every new school rapper has dropped an album. We’ve got J Cole, Kendrick Lamar, Big Sean, Wale, Nicki Minaj, and now Drake. One thing that needs to be figured out, is who has had the best album this year. So in short this year we’ve had 2014 Forest Hills Drive, The Pinkprint, To Pimp A Butterfly, The Album About Nothing, and Darksky Paradise. Do y’all not see what the true problem is…

We all know that taking a break from the music industry is much needed. So much goes on and it can drain you as a person. But as A Fan! I’ve got to say, an album a year would do me just fine! I know that’s an unrealistic goal, but for these artist’s it’s been far to long since their last album and they need one to come out ASAP. Adele She left on such a high note, I just wanted more. It’s almost as if the Skyfall anthem was her beautiful goodbye. I refuse to accept that Adele!…

Serena Jameka Williams: gorgeous, role model, hard worker, philanthropist, a great sport, dominant, playful, and warm, yet somehow I still keep seeing articles that are trying to discredit her. I’m going to put out an article that’s about her impact on tennis, as well as the world, because she deserves to be praised for the outstanding individual that she is. Serena as a tennis player has done something that very few athletes do. She dominates in a sport that houses both men and women, and has broken nearly all the records for both men and women. Serena plays each and…

You know, when people look at Eminem, all they see is a troubled white guy who hates his mom, loves violence, and can rap good. Eminem is had far more impact than that, in both the white and black communities. He’s proved himself to be a legend, he’s gone through some of the best and has come out on the winning end. Eminem has scratched and clawed his way to the top, and the respect that he’s garnered is endless. He is a walking example of someone who is going to remain himself, and that will make both sides uncomfortable.…

I got put on to Southpark at one of the most random times in my life. I was at a friends house and their sister just started watching the show, immediately I was dying of laughter. From that point on, I made it my duty to make sure that I watch Southpark every moment I could. As I got more into the episodes, I noticed that this show is very political, and socially conscious. The creators often make satire out of it, but the message in each episode is powerful. I think a lot of people are turned off from…

At 27 years old Rihanna is turning into an icon amongst icons. Her impact on the music industry, whether we want to admit it or not has been extraordinary. She’s constantly reinventing her style, and she’s as carefree as they come and it’s ushered in a new era of carefree women, black women in particular. She works harder than you can imagine, and that is why she gets the accolades that she does. Her clap backs to whoever tries to throw shade at her are legendary, and people often think twice before saying something about her because they don’t want…
