The combination of the characters Raleigh St. Clair and Richie Tenenbaum from Wes Anderson’s “The Royal Tenenbaums,” (hilariously odd movie).  Raleigh Ritchie has put […]

I have been a fan of these girls for a minute now, even though they have only released 3 songs and that was in 2011.  That’s how dope they are !   KING independently released their first EP to much acclaim;  title track “The Story,” (featured on GLAMOUR‘s Top Songs Playlist), “Supernatural” and “Hey” (featured in 2014 motion […]

No seriously that’s the name of their supergroup.  This is not a test or a joke.  These 2 dudes did a whole project together called  OMFGODBKNOLA and me thinks it’s pretty dope!  I love that Mos took a moment to try something different and Mannie the same.  Obviously Mos is different then other MC’s Mannie has […]

It’s Black Music Month and I decided to share some good music with you as I celebrate our contributions.  I have known Khemist for a while now, met him a few years ago while he was attending Hampton.   I have to say watching this video made me want so much more of him.  It […]

He started playing drums at the age of […]
