Renaissance: Q-Tip / The Review

 Remember when you had a tape (yeah, I said tape on purpose) or an album that you really liked and wondered why the club/radio never seemed to play all your “favorites” from it?  Or, how there were certain rap songs you thought you weren't going to like because of the intro music..

Coming to a Dollar $tore Near You…

If you know me, you know that I haven’t been the staunchest Common supporter since he began to apologize for making Electric Circus. In addition to that, his subsequent albums lack the energy, creativity, focus and ferocity of Like Water for Chocolate or Resurrection. In most conversations,..

Do something new!

Do something new!

Watermelon is the new single from the DJ Jamad and Nicolay project, Afro Collabo.Peter Hadar is by far one of my favorite artists, and Well Dressed for the Art Show is a CLASSIC in my book. He’s one of those special artists with a great voice, and the knack to write some of the illest lines..

Vinyl? Check! 9: Do It Til You're Satisfied

This 1980 George Duke produced gem is filled with great choons! This is one of those albums that makes me wish I wasnt 3 yrs. old at the time this album dropped. There was so much wonderful music at this time.

All songs on “Riding High”are..
