I just wanted to keep everyone in the loop since I had a lot of inquiries. You might have noticed Sunday night and all day Monday that you got a ‘warning’ notice when you visited the site…at least, I know it was like that for the firefox browser. Essentially, either someone or a third party […]

Gotta Love a Story Like This (Big Sean X SXSW)

I saw this story while browsing the forums and I wanted to post it up here because I like it and it backs up the notion that Big Sean is one of the coolest industry guys – as I’ve heard from numerous people (I’ve never met him, personally): My very good friends _____ and _____ […]

I’m turning off the comments for a day or so. Getting hit with a lot of spam and I can’t seem to block it. Usually goes away if I turn the comments off for a bit. Will let you know when I turn them back on.

Surprise. Jay-Z & Puff the Richest in Hip Hop.

I feel like Forbes does these lists like 5 times a year, but this time around we get the top 5 wealthiest in hip hop. Here’s the article: Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter has had quite a career thus far. Since debuting in 1996 with hip-hop classic Reasonable Doubt, he has sold over 50 million records worldwide. […]

Editorial: Lupe’s Fan Fiasco

Lupe Fiasco’s album Lasers drops tomorrow. The internet savvy have already downloaded the bootleg. From what i’ve seen via twitter, facebook, etc.,  most Lupe fans are not rocking with the album. “Lupe sold out”, “Lupe mailed it in”, “this isn’t the lupe we want”, and on and on and on. The most consistent complaint i’ve […]

The Labels with the Most Billboard #1 Singles Are…

…those labels above. The word cloud breaks it down. The bigger the name, the more #1 hits were served up. Columbia and Capitol reign supreme. Don’t let this necessarily fool you, though. It’s all relative to the number of artists on each label, how long the label has been around, as well as the popularity […]

I just realized that a bunch of comments people are leaving are going right in to a spam folder for some reason. I never looked in the folder until just now, so sorry if your comment was never posted. I’ll be more conscious of looking through that folder in the future.

NPR: “Nine Rappers, One Wu-Tang Clan”

I always enjoy when National Public Radio gives an analytical look at different elements of  hip hop. This time around, NPR’s ‘All Things Considered’ focuses on the organized mess of characters that make up the collective Wu Tang Clan. You can read the accompanying article here or listen to the radio podcast feature below: DOWNLOAD […]

Pictures: 2010 in Review (Music)

I don’t like doing lists or wrap up posts at the end of any given year, season, etc – but I do like to reflect on the past year by taking a look at pictures (taken by me). If you know me personally, you know that I’m big on picture taking. They’re hung all over […]

FYI ~ Just a quick post to tell you guys a few things. First off, if I were you, I wouldn’t expect all that much groundbreaking material this week. Generally, this is one of the slowest weeks with people on vacations and taking time off from Christmas to New Years. However, obviously, I will be […]
