Memorizing Lyrics If you’ve ever sat down to write rhymes, you know that it can be a daunting task. What do I talk about? Does it fit together? Does it fit within the bars? Most people, it takes years of practice to get this art form down. There are a handful of artists though that […]

New talent As much as I am a purest at heart, I’m always a fan of good music. Because of what I do, I’m always getting new artists sent to me for review. I love hip hop so it’s always exciting when I’m able to find a new artist that shows skills from the golden […]
