Roll and Coasters: Hold Up/Fade

R&Cs: Hold Up/Fade

In terms of constantly pushing the boundaries of the music video, its format, its aesthetics, its significance and its importance in their catalog, Beyoncé and Kanye West should immediately spring to mind. It’s only right that two of our most prominent pop culture reference points should share top billing.

I wrote as kid. (I'd die if you'd ever get your hands on those poems.) And I wrote as a teen. (We thought our raps would spearhead revolution.) I write these days to share my joys and perspectives. I am as subjective as they come. I found a bunch of blessed souls that are just as expressive. And Africa is all the better for it. (I think I never really changed.)
