It was time for another article from your boy, DJ FINK. The light has come back in my soul and I am feeling a whole lot better about life, love, and the things we all have to do to bring joy to others. Tough times never last but tough people do. This was a saying... Read more »
As you know I think today’s music is whick, whick, whack! It’s like a jungle, sometimes it makes me wonder how I keep from going under after listening to all of this bull crap.

Many moons ago I decided that I wanted to take the road less traveled and provide an outlet for unsigned and forgotten artists. I created ClubbinTV and spent every dollar I had, borrowed dollars from family and friends, sought out investors, won over sponsors and launched the managed bar, live performance engagement marketing events geared...

I see that every magazine, television music program, and Hip-Hop aficionado around this time comes out with the best 10 rappers of all time.
