There’s no silver lining in senseless tragedies. Hip-Hop has (yet again!) been robbed of another talent; I’m talking about Pop Smoke. The kid was only 20! One of my homies was just lamenting about only getting on the Brooklynite’s explosive brand of drill. And a week ago, another one was sadly observing how they...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 is our sincerest hope that you’ve enjoyed the two year-end playlists we’ve put out earlier in the week as we crossed into 2020.

(It goes without saying that you should do it after you’ve gone through this playlist 😅). What works am I gushing about: Burna Boy’s African Giant, Rick Ross’ Port...Continue reading
Very few today would be quick to remember that the charismatic, chiseled and health-conscious Gucci Mane we see today was once a doughy irreverent recalcitrant. What never changed has been his prolific nature with music output. The Meek-Mill-assisted “Backwards” single is the second in the rollout to his 14th(!) album (Delusions of Grandeur) in...Continue reading
