City of Sorrow

Over the course of the last, damnnnn, at this point 7 years? Chicago has been on the forefront of America’s top tier cities. Whether it be for a negative or positive situation. You hear so much bad though, that you become desensitized to the reality of people’s environments. That’s why it’s always good & refreshing […]

Back In Eighth Grade

I can’t say I recall a time where a 16 17, 18 year old man child captivated so many children & adults, genuinely, at once. Youngboy NBA may be a true 1 of 1. Hailing from the infamous Baton Rogue, he wears pain on his face. Literally. Unstoppable & unbreakable, he dropped out of school […]

The story goes he was released from prison this year & got straight to it. Having shared three solo projects […]

DJ Khaled Can’t Lose

I’m old enough to have known and listened to DJ Khaled for a majority of my life. I remember his run as the DJ who put Miami on the map along with Rick Ross in the mid 2000s. Now in 2016 the “We The Best” boss has gone a resurgence. Mainly due to his growing […]
