Detroit’s own Black Milk has dropped a new track called I Guess on his soundcloud. Why aren’t we talking about Black Milk’s place as one of the greatest rapper/producers of all time? He’s probably the only guy I could imagine that I can call up strictly for a beat OR a verse and be more [...]

Johannesburg South African singer Melo B Jones has dropped a fantastic little song called, “You Don’t Love Me” for those of you who’s cuffing season is officially over.

After the trippy journey through the last 40 years of black music that is Kendrick’s “To Pimp A Butterfly”, some of you may be wondering who some of the fantastic musicians who helped bring it ot life are. Fader has a run down here, and the man that helped bring the horns to the game [...]

After more then a few shenanigans like leaking their own albums and canceling tours the Death Grips officially called it quits last year. However being deceased has been pretty good to them as far as productivity is concerned; in the interim they dropped an instrumental album, a few videos, current rehearsal footage, and are about [...]

Even ignoring her otherworldly voice, masterful blend of electronics and strings, along with her strong visuals, are unparalleled. Its just so unique, that you would be hard pressed to find anyone trying to bite her style [...]

When she’s not impressing or depressing us by her shenanigans, Azealia Banks still finds time in between the trolling to have a pretty impressive career of dope dance-pop. This time around she decided to flip the script and throw in an interactive video featuring your own webcam. It has her playing the mimic to your [...]
