Jay-Z is like a fine wine; He gets better with Age…MCHG is Historic

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 »

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 »

15 years after the Miseducation of Lauryn Hill the emptiness still exists.

I loved the FUGEES. As a matter of fact Lauryn Hill wasn’t even my favorite Fugee, neither was Wyclef Jean. Nope that honor went to John Forte. He was underrated. Yes I said it. The first CD he released was entitled, “Poly Sci”. If you haven’t heard that entire CD, and you are a true... 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 »

My take on the Justin Timberlake, “Suit and Tie” Grammy show!

The Grammy’s were good. LL COOL J was hard as hell. I love the fact that he had Chuck D from Public Enemy in his performance. Great seeing an artist giving love to a fellow artist and one of the major moments of a grown up Grammy’s. I am thinking to myself LL COOL J... Read more »

BRING THAT BEAT BACK!

In the ongoing quest to find out what is missing in the rap game today I think I have stumbled on to a piece of the puzzle that has not been addressed. I believe that if the real beat-makers started making hot tracks like they did in the early 90’s today’s rappers would have to... 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 »

Ice Cube is the street CNN. He speaks for the unspoken and his latest single brings back the Growl Face. Thank you Ice Cube.

I must state that Ice Cube is my favorite hip-hop artist of all time. Many of today’s youth think of Ice Cube as the friendly movie guy who made films like, “Are We There Yet”, “21 Jump Street”, The Long Shots, Barbershop, Beautyshop and Friday. Long before he was making the masses of America laugh... Read more »

Artistry and individuality are essential for the rebirth resurrection and the rise of music.

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...

The top 10 reasons I can’t come out with a top 10 listing of the greatest Rappers of all time.

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. There are the usual suspects in the top 5 but there are also people who have no business being on that list. I am no genius. I have never ghost written.... Read more »
