Quadron Covers “Baby Be Mine”

Internet nerds (like me) are rewarded with late night musical treats. A few folks on my twitter timeline were re-posting a link to the video featured above — an exquisite cover by Denmark’s finest Quadron of an MJ classic. Robin and Coco never disappoint and this is no exception — the vocals babble beautifully like … Continue reading

I strongly dislike Celebrity Gossip but…

is this forreal? I know it’s problematic to give a fuck but it feels like the perfect “marriage” to stage. I’ve always been partial to Nicki for her theatrics and every Drizzy verse that refers to her (or his “lust” for her) is beyond painfully performative. In some ways this would be an appropriate publicity … Continue reading

Understanding “We Were Once A Fairytale”

There’s nothing quite like a Spike Jonze joint staging the assisted suicide of Kanye West’s symbolic ego to spark lively debate. The first 10 minutes leading up to the final scene artfully expose the hoax of fame and celebritydom (is that even a word?) as the god-like presence of Kanye West collapses onto itself (something … Continue reading

Drake ft. Wayne, Ye, & Eminem “Forever” Leak

+ DOWNLOAD: Drake feat. Lil Wayne, Kanye West & Eminem “Forever” (prod. Boi-1da) + We might be breaking records this week for the number of leaks! I kept my expectations fairly low for this “all star” collaboration precisely because their names alone generate enough hype to get by on mediocrity. However, Eminem’s superior performance and … Continue reading

The Plot Thickens: Jay-Z “Off That”

It’s official: not even Timbaland production can save The Blueprint 3. Feel free to disagree with me but this track is straight trash. Shout out to OKP for keeping it one hunnit and heeding the wisdom of Andre 3000 — “‘this old lady told me if I ain’t got nothin’ good, say nathan..” Nathan’ it … Continue reading

Drake Live @ SOB’s (Full Set)

Shout out to my super homie DJ Ness @ Hot 97 and Miss Info for the hook up!

Blackberry Freestyle

I think we can all agree that technology has switched up the game. I recognize the irony in knocking Drizzy for reading a “freestyle” (whatever that means these days) off his Blackberry while quoting tweets from older heads disillusioned with the ever-changing nature of hip hop. The absurdity of twitter aside, FWMJ spurred quite a … Continue reading

He Said, She Said: Drake

“The whole tape extends from one of my closest friends Oliver. One night we were having a discussion about women and the way we were talking about them, it was so brazen and so disrespectful. He texted me right after we got off the phone and he was like, “Are we becoming the men that … Continue reading
