One more for the ShenYeng clan! Since “Blessed” took off last year, Shenseea has been in high demand. And you won’t hear any complaints from me when the trickle we’ve been accustomed to turns into a steady stream of Shenseea bangers like “Trick’a Treat”. The gem is one of many from the Aircraft Riddim; she...Continue reading
Set aside her massive breakout hit “OOOUUU” for a second; you might not have realized that Young M.A has sustained a run of solid rap releases that spans over three years! “No Bap Freestyle” is just another one of those: a non-album cut leading up to her debut (!) album, HERstory in the Making, which...Continue reading
The #MeToo movement has made significant strides to stamp out rampant and (practically) normalized sexual abuse/harassment against women in professional environments as well as the perpetrators’ relative immunity.

(Truly, you can’t go wrong when you start with Cardi!) Elsewhere on this smorgasbord of...Continue reading
Ciara never really left. Her abilities as a dancer aren’t to be written off yet. “Level Up”, the lead single to her forthcoming album is a the high-energy anthemic hit that we’ve been used to and (that some of us) quickly forgot.
Back in 2016, we broke into the spring and summer seasons with electric dancehall and afro pop vibes deftly mixed by the german DJ duo So Shifty. This past year, as I was retooling I sinfully ignored Jr Blender and Bigga T mixes and failed to share. Better late than never. Enjoy!
