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. I’m waiting, I’m waiting, for music that knocks me off my feet. Finally, there were two CD’s that were not just... Read more »
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 »
I am working on my Kendrick Lamar response. Don’t worry I got him… Hip Hop was in a frenzy this week as Kendrick Lamar did the unthinkable! He mentioned some current rappers names on track in a song. He didn’t say he hated them! He didn’t say he had sex with their wives/girlfriends! All he... Read more »
I was hyped up for another release from the Hip Hop elder statesmen. Jay-Z is a “business” man, not a businessman. Jay-Z is backed by the greatest promotion machine in Hip-Hop and when it is his turn to bring the heat and release a new CD the whole world is anticipating. Naming your CD, “The... Read more »
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 »

You have to drive from New York to LA and the only CD you can have is a Jay-Z CD. Which Jay-Z CD is it?
A car manufacturer wants you to test out their new car. They want you to drive it from New York to Los Angeles. There is only one catch. They want you to drive the car with only one CD. No radio is installed. No USB Port for I-phones, I-pads or any other mp3 players. Finally... Read more »
Would everyone in the media stop blaming Beyonce for everything please!!! She told you No, No, No, No, No. The media keeps saying Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes. Over the last couple of weeks we have had Lip-Sync gate and Zero Dark Superbowl. People in the media have tried to portray Beyonce as the villain.... Read more »
If the media really played fair wouldn’t they also state that Obama is half white? GOBAMA! 4 more years of moving in the right direction. That is music to my ears.
This is the first column that I have written that didn’t have a music slant to it but this election on November 6, 2012 will shape America for the next 50 years and I had to say something. I love President Obama and it is not because he is black. Funny thing about Obama being... Read more »
