    First off, Happy New Year and decade to everyone out there. Hoping this new decade and year will be the start of a new, prosperous beginning. If things have been going great, hoping they’ll continue moving in that direction. We’re starting the year off with a Music Monday on the R&B tip. Mashich is his name and he’s someone that DCDaBeast introduced me to. The track is called Haunted and A.M.O. Productions is responsible for the beat while J. Mogul mixed it. The first time hearing it was on Mashich’s Instagram page and thought it was dope. After first listening to Haunted, it made me think about all the music…

    Listen and Stream Rapsody Eve for Music Monday

    This week, we’re having not one, but two featured for Music Monday. The first one was the new Jeezy album, TM 104: The Legend of the Snowman. For this one, we have the new album from Rapsody entitled Eve. While many people have been up on Rapsody for a minute, unfortunately that’s not the case for me. My first time hearing her was on Complexion off of To Pimp a Butterfly from Kendrick Lamar. Afterwards, you can say I backtracked and started to follow her. A couple years ago, Rapsody released the Laila’s Wisdom album and it was one of my favorite from 2017. This time, Rapsody dropped her name…

    Da Brat Funkdafied for Music Monday

    Back on June 28th, Da Brat celebrated the 25th anniversary of her Funkdafied album. Da Brat became the first female MC to put out a platinum album. To me, Da Brat is one of the illest female rapper of all-time as she’s put out classics throughout her time. For the returning Music Monday, what better track to be featured than Funkdafied. Just like that album, the title track went platinum and it featured Jermaine Dupri. Funkdafied was one of the hottest tracks in the summer of 1994. If you recall 1994, that was an amazing year for hip hop. Funkdafied was featured on Disc 2 of my Golden Era of…

    My Music Monday is a new track from Dannie and it’s called Da One. While listening to this track, my daughter was with me, who loves music just like her dad. The first thing she said was, who’s that daddy? She listened and told me how much she loved it. I’ll admit, this track is one that addictive and I really enjoyed it. Hailing from King & Queen County Virginia, she’s driven, passionate and charismatic artist with a unique approach to her blend of hip-hop, soul and R&B. Her music is not just about entertainment: Dannie is passionate about portraying her thoughts, hopes and dreams, going for a truly authentic and…

    Music Monday: Sasha Renee I Am Sasha Renee

    Do you remember Sasha Renee? About 3 years ago, I talked about how I loved her style, concepts and lyrics. She reminded me of a mixture of Erykah Badu, Lauryn Hill and a little of India Arie. Those sentiments remain true especially when she dropped an unreleased track called Modern Day Emmitt Tills, which was dope. With female MCs being talked about lately because the Remy Ma/Nikki Minaj beef that’s going on, there’s so many ladies out there that deserve the spotlight. Sasha Renee is one of them and that’s the reason she’s my Music Monday pick and my first one since the middle of October. Her new track is…

Finally, Nas hooked up with DJ Khaled for this new track called Nas Album Done. I remember hearing the snippet before it was released and was ready for this to drop immediately.

    Music Monday 8/17/2015

    While listening to a mixtape from the homie, DJ Skroog Mkduk I came across a new track by Boosie Bad Azz that was pretty tight. The track is called Letter to Pac, which is like him writing a letter to 2Pac. Often times, people compare the two and pretty much everyone knows that 2Pac is my favorite artist ever. I feel bad that I never really listened to Boosie before he was locked up, but I started listening to him alot when people were making a bug deal about him getting out of jail. Later on, he dropped a really good mixtape Life After Deathrow, which I liked alot. Listen…
