What A Time

Getting to know the artist these days is very important for the consumer, or fan if you will. That’s why you see so many publications & platforms are able to report on the culture, or feel they can. Too many times are artist trash at expressing themselves or don’t want to give too much away. […]

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 […]

Happy December 4th

December 4th is the birthday of Jay Z, to some the greatest rapper to ever bless the mic. While debates will linger about who is actually the G.O.A.T. of hip-hop, no one can deny Jay Z’s impact on not only the rap game but pop culture. Jay Z has become more than just a rapper […]

Jay Z and Dame Dash Reunite

Growing up as a young boy you had these dynamic duo’s you admired. Some had Batman and Robin, others had Jordan and Pippen. For me it was Jay Z and Dame Dash. Jay was the face of the franchise and Dame was the hustler behind the scenes. The two one time partners and friends had […]

Album Review: MCHG

Thirteen number one albums, Grammy’s, founding of Roc Nation records, 40/40 clubs, Sports Agent, etc etc. It seems since the turn of the century whatever Jay-Z touches turns to gold or platinum depending on your preference.
