Cheating in a relationship proves to be a deal breaker,the beginning to the end of something otherwise good. The initial trust vested becomes null and void, becomes a thing of the past, in more serious cases ceases to exist. Nowadays, cheating is not only confined to the physical act of ‘getting it on’, emotional involvement minus the physical has become part and parcel too. From … Continue reading Women and Cheating

Two weeks ago, on my way to the Shrine (A popular multimedia arts and cultural venue located in Harlem, NYC which music lovers patronize throughout the week, especially because of the live performances) to vibe out to some dancehall reggae and African music, I stumbled upon a live performance that was absolutely electric. M.H. the Verb, a multi-talented artiste who is also a producer, songwriter and DJ, was on stage literally killing it, with his energy and a fantastic live production band. In the words of phrase forward kids, the place was liiiiiiiiiiiiit! According to his publicist, he is an experience you don’t want to miss. With a unique sound that merges different genres together, this Philly/NYC based artiste, whose rhymes are more likely to be about student loans than “spinnaz” is one to definitely watch.

On second thoughts, I decided … Continue reading Feature: [Pieces to the Puzzle: Mel Rivers]

Yuri Koller is a Toronto based vocalist, songwriter, and producer. His latest effort, Open Doors, came to us via a short sweet email from the man himself. It is a mashup of hiphop, RnB, and soul. Personally, I struggled to find any soul esque notes in his music, hence it just being a contemporary R&B album. If you miss the 90s era, his music re-ignites that vibe effortlessly.
In terms of production, his crew consisting of Cxaleb,SE7N, Oliver Grey, Korruption, and the Masterminds and Nexus Movement, went hard in the paint for him. Both Kai and I were impressed with their professional efforts. Shourr ourrs to dem! Overall, it is a very well produced and cohesive sophomore project. Apparently, this cutie has been on his grind for a minute…Nyhoo, journey with me as I review, and let’s see whether he gets a (-) to the nth power, or an (A*) rating.

I was somewhere in a library, cranking out a report, when I decided to check in on one of my all time favorite blogs, Fly. That’s how I stumbled upon this gem of an album! I never thought to do a review, until today. Before I do though, let me give you a little background information about the duo.
Milo and Otis, met at Brown University, but decided to wait 5 years to make music, because “what the fuck do kids know about music?” Before enrolling at Brown, Otis had already graduated from Harvard University at the tender age of 16. Ain’t that neat? Meanwhile our girl Milo, was already at Brown getting her read on, and is now a lawyer. Oh yeah, she also performs poetry under the moniker, Jamila Wood. Want to learn more about them, here is the magic key!
[HIGH ALERT] Their music, is the kind that is usually termed as being weird and promptly dismissed by the mainstream. They describe their sound as “someone else’s heartbeat when they give you a hug.”
Release date: October 16, 2012
[Sigh!] Where do I begin and end with this album review, hold on tight to your seats. This captain is pissed.
I’ve been looking forward to Brandy’s album return. There are not enough adjectives in the Oxford dictionary to describe the atrocity and all kinds of fail that is this album. Folks, I’m not soft with my reviews, sorry to grate your nerves. I believe in writing a review free of bias, and unadulterated in opinion. When I asked Kai for hers she did not hesitate to state, “It is not worth bootlegging. It is the kind of album one doesn’t care if it leaks before release date, because it is just yeah…..”[loss of words]. She even called Jesus, then summoned Him back immediately to His seat in glory, for His help could not restore her faith in this album. Woah! Continue reading “[Music Review] Brandy’s Two Eleven”
