Donnell Jones Where I Wanna Be Released 20 Years Ago

The 90s produced a lot of great music during that time period. Whether you’re a fan of hip hop or R&B, there were plenty of music acts for you to pick. When it comes to R&B, names like R. Kelly, Keith Sweat, Dru Hill, Jodeci, Boyz II Men and many others come to mind. One name that many people always seem to leave out was Donnell Jones. It could be one of two reasons why Donnell Jones doesn’t get his proper shine. One could be that he didn’t blow up until the late-90s or the first part of the y...

Desert Daze 2019, Day 1: The Flaming Lips, Stereolab and a couple of African show-stealers

Mos Def Black on Both Sides Dropped 20 Years Ago

Mos Def is one of the illest to ever touch the mic. Throughout his career that spans well over 20 years, Mos Def only dropped four solo albums. He have been on countless singles, compilation projects and collaborated on a couple. Whenever you hear him spit, you already know you’re getting some gritty, dope lyrics. Mos Def collaborated with Talib Kweli to form Black Star in 1998 and they released their classic album. The following year, Mos Def released his debut, solo album Black on Both Sides...
