Making sure my punctuation curve #PoeticJustice

•••
Sadly to say, Kendrick Lamar's debut album, good kid, m.A.A.d city, followed the trend of his rap peers and leaked online a week early. As much as I want to see Kendrick do well and have chart success, as he is a true breath of fresh in the rap game, I am happy his album leaked because we were blessed early with the standout track, "Poetic Justice" featuring[...]

Sound Trapping: ☠ ✖ ☠ ✖ ☠ #SeenMolly?

•••
 I want to introduce you to my girl Molly Cyrus. Ahhh, to be young, dumb, numb, shirtless and sweaty. It must be the Pretty Lights, if not it must be that pure MDMA running through your veins. Not so different from a pop song, imagine pure MDMA packed tight into an easy to swallow pill. One take and you're sold by the time the beat drops. Euphoria ensues,[...]

Last week, I went with one of my good friends to visit her co[...]

No Country For Old Pop Stars

•••
I don't like Football. I, like the other 3 million extra people tuned into to the Super Bowl just for the halftime show. And to see Madonna. On the eve of her 12th album, if you study numerology you'd understand that significance, and her re-entry into American Pop Culture, this was her magnum opus on stilettos and gold. But the response was anything but c[...]

•••
The modern music industry’s Mitochondrial Eve returns with a fervor to prove – once again – that despite all patriarchal restrictions and destruction: she who bears the womb… the forever battlefield, and said burden… is she who is best equipped to commandeer the cultural revolution. Who rev the world? Girls. The revolution will be feminized. She who[...]
