Robert Glasper and Hiatus Kaiyote. 2 different sounds, one giant step for music.

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 »

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 »

If you had to make a Hip Hop Time Capsule for the year 2510 what CD’s would you place in the capsule?

After watching the latest regurgitated time travel movie on television I decided to create a Hip Hop Time Capsule for the planet of Mercury’s graduating class of 2510. Believe me the aliens aren’t going to be caring if Beyonce lip-synced the National Anthem, (WHO GIVES A F— ANYWAY), or whether Manti Teo’s girlfriend missed the... Read more »

The election is over and music is still horrible. My wife just scolded my daughter on singing along with one of the new Lil Wayne songs on the radio. You know what… she was right in doing so.

While we were driving from picking up some groceries from the local grocery store, (YOU KNOW I WAS HAPPY), my 15 year old daughter was singing along to a new Lil Wayne song entitled, “No Worries”. Oh did I happen to mention that my 4 year-old daughter was in the car? If you are a... 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 »

Where oh where has the real music gone?

Music soothes the savage beast. We have all heard stories about the power music has in healing, but music and the sound of music was originally used as communication device in Egypt as early as 6000 B.C. Hearing different drum patterns usually meant that there was a change of weather, announcement of a birth, or... Read more »
