I’ve got serious questions for Big Baby D.R.A.M.

Chances are by this point you’ve heard one of D.R.A.M.’s infamous tunes and found yourself heading bobbing along to the rambunctious beat, but have you seen any of the music videos to complement the songs? It’s becoming a hobby of mine to cast D.R.A.M. videos from my phone to TV, sit back, and ask myself […]

Latest Obsession: PARTYNEXTDOOR

By this point PARTYNEXTDOOR has made a name for himself as a part of OVO’s label and hip-hop artist. While I knew of PARTY due to his collabs with other big-name artists, I had never taken the time to appreciate his work. Today in my morning walk to work, I realized that it had been […]

Music Video for [Ayo] by Chris Brown and Tyga Drops

In many ways, Ayo takes me back to the music video Chris Brown did for Loyal because of the bright lights and Tyga feature; however, while Loyal really showed off Chris’s range of talents, Ayo does not. The music video fast forwarded through the cold New York winter and skipped to spring/summer for about six minutes, all thanks to the […]

On Repeat: Favorite [UNDERRATED] Albums of 2014

2014 was an interesting year for music.
