2019 is in the books and we’ve tried as much (and as quick) as possible to whittle down the music we’ve enjoyed to our favorites. It turned out that, between four guys, we had a loooot of them — in spite of overlaps! In the end, we agreed to pick out a few major...Continue reading
I had the occasion, a few months ago, to give a bit of insight on GIMS (who remains a favorite despite erring away from hip-hop). “Entre nous c’est mort” is — like all GIMS singles that I’ve included in previous Roll & Coasters going as far back as March 2018 — off of his...Continue reading
…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

We were so looking forward to Boogie’s debut album! And boy did he not disappoint! I had no doubts that Everythings for Sale would be a good album but I was frankly blown away. So, I see no better way to kick off this meaty playlist with his single, a collaboration with J.I.D (who’s...Continue reading
We’ve reached the twentieth edition of Roll & Coasters and I feel like I’m just hitting my stride. This week’s is light work thanks to the likes of Solange (she always comes through with the videos for her songs), Vybz Kartel (he’s effectively let his video tap open) and The Weeknd (clearly on a...Continue reading
Arguably one of the coolest in the history of USA first ladies, Michelle Obama will also go down as one of the most visible. Not only a skilled orator, Michelle Obama is very savvy with the usage of social media to push awareness on her work. Such is the case with the Let Girls...Continue reading
