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 (genre)...Continue reading
I decided to give my spin on one of our more popular playlist series. (It’s also one of our more suggestive series; no coincidence there, right?) So I asked the series mastermind for the creative process behind it and quizzed a few dear lads and ladies and this is what we’ve come with. Picture this...Continue reading
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 Casanova...Continue reading
It bears repeating that Dreamville’s ROTD3 compilation is absolutely jam-packed!

It’s seldom you see a 30-plus-year hip-hop vet with enough...Continue reading

The feedback that I’ve received was amazing (and I look forward to another go at it at some other point this year). Here we’re back to our regular dose of...Continue reading
Picking up right where we left off yesterday, here’s another companion playlist for those aforementioned summer nights.
As I alluded earlier, DJ Khaled’s latest album is out and one of the tracks we were so eager to hear was “Higher”, one of the last songs Nipsey Hussle worked on before he was fatally shot. The video, which was filmed in Nipsey’s beloved Crenshaw just days prior the tragedy, was the first in...Continue reading
The little things that make nights longer for young and old lovers…
You better be in the mood to bathe in lust and ecstasy.
