ON WAX: QUAVO DROPS ‘QUAVO HUNCHO,’ DRAKE AND CHRIS BROWN END THEIR BEEF, YELLA BEEZY SHOT, & More

QUAVO’S SOLO DEBUT Migos’ frontman, Quavo, has delivered his debut solo project, Quavo Huncho. In typical Migos’ fashion, the project is loaded with 19 tracks that are over an hour long. Unfortunately, Quavo seems to lack the diversity of his other members, as this project is very one-dimensional. The highlights from the project mostly come in […]

T.I. ‘Dime Trap’

T.I. ‘Dime Trap’

Last Friday, T.I. released his 10th studio album, Dime Trap, a much-anticipated follow-up to his last album, Paperwork, that was released in 2014. As soon as I heard about the album—with little marketing, as I found out about it through Instagram blurbs and The Shade Room posts—I had two questions: 1. Considering T.I. hasn’t put out an […]

“Anybody wanna make a band?” -Ian Simpson’s post on the KanyeToThe.com Damn!! Brockhampton’s iridescence just hit number one on the Billboard #200. The number one album in the country…but let me back it up. A year ago, I attended the 2017 edition of Camp Flog Gnaw. There were a lot of acts on my list of artists […]

Hip-Hop Shelf life:  Reviewing ‘Tha Carter V’

Hip-Hop Shelf life: Reviewing ‘Tha Carter V’

Tha Carter V may have dropped two weeks ago, but I’ve been a Lil Wayne fan since his Cash Money Millionaires days in the late `90s—when he was a member of The Hot Boy$ with Juvenile, Young Turk, and B.G. I remember being in fourth grade when I heard “Back That Azz Up” by Juvenile, […]

Lil Baby x Gunna Finally arriving is the highly-anticipated Gunna and Lil Baby project, Drip Harder.

This is one a lot of people have been waiting for—even comparing them to duos, like Lil […]

Black, Queer, and Proud – A Playlist

Black, Queer, and Proud – A Playlist

It’s 2018, so it shouldn’t be much of a surprise that there are even more dope Queer artists on the R&B and hip-hop music scene than there were six years ago—acceptance issues are becoming a thing of the past. It was back in 2012, when Frank Ocean penned an open letter to his fans to […]

Diving Into Queer R&B Artist Tiffany Gouché

Diving Into Queer R&B Artist Tiffany Gouché

Edgy, sultry, and Lesbian? Usually when we think of R&B, we think of a man singing without his shirt on with sweat dripping from his chest and numerous women screaming in orgasmic unison. Tiffany Gouché not only challenges that stereotype, but presents a whole new norm for female R&B artists. Tiffany is revolutionary in the […]
