Again, my long time friend, @Remixznflow82, has inspired another post. Saturday, he hit me with this tweet:   @WalkSays i would like your opinion on this video bro… let me know youtube.com/watch?v=5_Qk-B… — J.J. (@Remixznflow82) July 21, 20 ...

Instant Classic.

Yesterday, if you hadn’t heard, D’Angelo emerged from wherever Shea butter infused, “incense” smoke-filled cave to drop “Black Messiah.” Prior to this release, D’Angelo had not released an album for nearly fifteen ...

Heads up: New Music Alert.

Chances are that you may not have ever heard of Swoope. If so, you’re missing out. Earlier this year he released an album called Sinema. It’s easily my favorite album of this year. It’s phenomenal. Anyway, he has a free project coming ou ...

Rihanna: Queen of the Illuminati.

Watch this video, and we’ll discuss it in a bit. It’s only about seven minutes long. I came across this video last week. I’m still not sure why I wasted time watching it, but after I did I felt like debunking everything about it. Care to ...

Diss tracks in Christian Hip Hop???.

I’ve been listening to Christian Hip Hop (CHH) for a long time. It was in the early 90s when I got my first two CHH tapes: I.D.O.L. King and Freedom of Soul. Yeah, bruh… tapes. Like, cassette tapes. I grew up thinking that any song that didn&# ...

http://www.youtube.com/watch? v=B8wfWO06yp8 That video was awesome, right? Jimmy Fallon has come a long way since he was ruining sketches by laughing during his Saturday Night Live days and Justin Timberlake is…well, Justin Timberlake. Add in some hip h ...

The Cult of Queen Bey.

Today will be a short post. All I want to say is that I very much so dislike Beyonce.  The sad part is it has little to do with her personally or her music. I don’t like Beyonce because she has quite possibly the worst fans of anything that has eve ...

Christian Rappers Can’t Win?.

XXL magazine recently ran a feature about Christian rap music. The thesis of the story was the same old, tried and true conclusion that Christian rappers have to dumb it down in order to be relevant. Except “it” isn’t lyrical ability, bu ...

Where’s the line??.

The insane should not be allowed to vote! I was reading this article on the @huffingtonpost that got me thinking… So recently a female “entertainer” (I refuse to call her a rapper) has brought attention upon herself due to her somewhat political ...

Hate Drake- He is Bad for Music.

Many people feel that Drake is what’s new, what’s hot, and what’s great in R&B/Hip-Hop music today.  But really, he has done more harm than good during his tenure as a pop superstar. Let me first say I will give credit where credit is due.  Du ...

It’s time for a breakup.

I don’t usually call for someone to get a divorce, but this one has been long overdue.  First they’re fighting, then they ignore each other.  Now, they’re attached at the pelvis so much that they are essentially one entity…and it annoys me. I ...

Bad hip hop… A bottom 10.

I like hip hop. I wouldn’t consider myself a hip hop junkie or any kind of expert, but I like it. I like music in general, especially when it’s done well; so in that regard, I guess I can appreciate the artistry of hip hop. And since it is the ...
