ON WAX: NICKI MINAJ ADDS TO HER ALBUM, Aminé AND STEFFLON DON DROPS

“CHANEL (GO GET IT)” This week Young Thug released a track called “Chanel (Go Get it),” enlisting the help of Lil Baby and Gunna.

R-I-P A-R-E-T-H-A

“Chain Of Fools,”  “Respect,”  “Think,” and “(You Make Me Feel) Like a Natural Woman.”  Those are just four songs she sang, but I could go on and on…“Freeway Of Love,” “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” and “Who’s Zoomin’ Who?” You see what I mean. There’s a reason why she is called the “Queen of Soul” because she really was. She did it with grace, […]

It was the Summer of 1991. At the time, I was working a part-time job as a Toys “R” Us stock boy, sort of attending community college at Orange Coast College, and “singing” for a local post-hardcore band called Triggerman.
