The homie was talking earlier about the older cats embracing the new generation of talent. And there’s no bigger case here than the recent pairing of Eminem and gone-too-soon Juice WRLD on “Godzilla”. We often deride the current hip-hop flagbearers and point at their lack of rapping skills, which they make up for with...Continue reading
Come to think of it, I might not be showing enough love to Camila Cabello in this segment; after all, she has an excellent track record as a pop star. I have been playing “My Oh My” — in fact, the whole of Romance — for a couple months now, and I was champing...Continue reading
We conclude our playlist series of 2019 faves here. It should be clear by now that there was a lot of music to take in. Collectively, it was also a good way to get an idea of the major tides last year. Indeed, the songs we liked reflected the continuous shift towards a more...Continue reading

It’s been a while since I made a playlist to put the spotlight on rapping mastery. Just like the previous time, I’ve made my pick at random from a large and growing pool of joints that I feel feature supreme displays of rapping. Take a listen, and smile. I bet you will concur!...
There are three months to go in this 2019 and hot projects are being released at a fever pitch now. I’m loving it! I’ll keep helping as I have in previous editions and give my two cents on the crème de la crème of the latest projects. This week, I’ve been mighty impressed by...Continue reading
