An Ode to the Men of My Past, Present, and Future As Told By “4:44”

I am the girl whose first introduction into Hip-Hop was sneaking her step-father's copy of Reasonable Doubt in her book bag to play "Dead Presidents II" on her CD player on her way to school.  I am the girl who begged her mother for a pair of S Dot Carters the moment they dropped. I am the girl who in 2004 watched in amazement as Hov tore down Madison Square...

June 21st marks the first day of the summer solstice—  which means it's time to break out the pum pum shorts, jerseys, and actually make good on all those promises to travel to Brooklyn.

F.U.B.U: Five Reasons Why “Brown Girls” is the New Web Series You Need to Watch

If you know me, you know I love a show that focuses on the daily struggles of being an "almost grown ass" woman. I've spent my college years dissecting each and every episode of Girlfriends, Sex and the City, and Girls and applying it to my life.  As the seasons of Girls continued not only did my distaste of Lena Dunham begin to rub off on the enjoyment of show, I realized how little...

Festival SZN: Every Music Fest You NEED to Hit in 2017!

Festival season is my favorite time of year.

This year, festivals have been dropping its lineups earlier than usual, making it harder to plan out your summer! But, no worries! If you need help deciding which festivals are worth...

Music Mondays: Domo Genesis’ Debut Album ‘Genesis’

The beauty that has come with Odd Future's "breakup" is definitely that the members, who were overshadowed in the collective, finally get a chance to shine with their dope solo projects. Just think, if Odd Future was still a thing, would we be able to hear the greatness that is The Internet? Or MellowHype? What about Domo Genesis? I've been a fan of Domo Genesis since he dropped No Idols —a collaborative project with...

What Are You Listening To: THE SADEVILLAIN EP

It's been a minute since I've done a music post, but this morning I fell in love. If you know me, you know I love some MF DOOM. I became a huge fan during my Adult Swim days. So when I saw Watchloud tweet out a link to a MF DOOM and Sade mashup project, my day was literally made. If you're a DOOM fan, you know how dope a Sade...

Snowmageddon and Chill?:  Five Web Series You NEED to Watch

If you live on the East Coast - or have been watching your twitter feed- then you know there is an "allegedly" huge snow storm on the way this weekend. The Tri-state and the DMV area are bound to get hit pretty hard during the first (and hopefully last) snowstorm of the season.

Tunji Ige Releases Dope Visuals to “Ball is Life”

Never one to drop a weak video, Tunji Ige is back with the stellar visuals to one of the standout ( and my personal favorite) tracks off of his debut project, "Ball is Life". In the Glassface directed video, Tunji takes to the countryside to escape the perils of his city  and the girl blowing up his phone. As the video ends a "This is concludes The Love Project" message appears? Does this...
