Rick Ross Mastermind could have been really good if...

Rick Ross has a new CD that is arriving in stores and digital download distributors tomorrow entitled, “Mastermind” This CD has me perplexed.

I had given up on R&B Music then I opened my mail and found …

Being a DJ and trying to put a weekly mix tape out of good music that your kids can listen to is becoming increasingly painful. I usually can start the mix off with one or two good new songs then I have to reach back into the old school crate if I want to mix... Read more »

Somewhere in America…Miley Cyrus is still TWERKING!

Not Syria, not the 50th anniversary of the Martin Luther King Speech, not even me loosing 3 pounds, was the talk of the world this week. (And let me tell you those pounds weren’t lost from a lack of trying to keep them on.) Nope. The talk of the world is that Miley Cyrus is... Read more »

The Best Male and Female rappers in hip hop of all times.

DJ FINK has TURNED UP his top Male/Female rappers list of all times. Ok I used the term, “Turned Up” because I had to sound like I was as hip as the B.E.T awards show and the current rappers of the day. I don’t even know what “Turned Up” is! That being said, I wanted... Read more »

Thank goodness for artists like Nicole Henry!

What is going on with the world and our musicians? Justin Bieber driving around bullying people with his car! Miguel karate kicking two white women at the same time! Kanye West walking into stop signs, Rick Ross won’t put his clothes on, Beyonce is pregnant every week, but only from Thursday to Sunday. Finally, Mariah... Read more »

Listening to Hip Hop does not make you a terrorist!

  Are you kidding me? The tragedy in Boston was enough. We don’t need news organizations like FOX and CNN to now start stereotyping that Hip Hop was a factor in these bombings. Plain and simple it was Hate! Hate for others! Hate for self. Not hate gained from listening to a Hip Hop song.... Read more »
