…Because that’s the feeling I was going with. They been told me DJ Okoro, you’re all about the sweet moments and lovely times. But just in case you didn’t knew, your boy can get grimey and all that if the occasion calls for it! And this is just a little exhibit of how sick...Continue reading
And just in case it hasn’t dawned on you, we’re about to get into the last quarter of 2019! So far the year has been equal parts trying and productive for me: a lot of sweat and a lot of tears…but there’s great music to console and cheer me on throughout. And that’s the...Continue reading
We should all be ecstatic that Missy Elliott has resurfaced to bless us with new music of her own; It’s been too damn long! “Throw It Back”, off her latest EP ICONOLOGY, is as good a reminder as any that Missy pioneered so many elements of the modern rap sound: she’s been there and...Continue reading

Je parle d’un nouveau single, “PGP”, tout juste sorti, qui rejoins des prestations acclamées sur les derniers sons de Bramsito (“Sale mood”), Dosseh (“MQTB”) ou encore Maes (“Madrina”). Ça s’annonce donc bien pour 2019 : disons qu’il faudra bien plus...Continue reading
Chris Brown’s new single “Undecided”… First of all, you have to respect the timing here: the first smash hit to take over the first weekend of 2019. Then, tapping into our fond memories for the early nineties R&B sound (remember Shanice’s “I Love Your Smile“?) will have us undoubtedly hooked — Bruno Mars rode...Continue reading
There’s strength in numbers. That’s the running theme behind most of the videos in this week’s Roll and Coasters. From one-two punch combinations (Bas with Cozz, Juicy J with Kanye, Pryse with Eva Alordiah) to massive posse cuts (DJ Juls, DJ Khaled, Khuli Chana), it’s all here....
