The awards show is changing. When you can't put dozens of celebrities in the same room for a live telecast, things don't work the same anymore.

Jimmy Fallon Raps “Old Town Road” As Bernie Sanders

The saga of Lil Nas X's "Old Town Road" is one of the best, weirdest pop-music stories we've heard in years. A Dutch teenager builds a rap beat out of an old Nine Inch Nails instrumental. An Atlanta teenager buys that beat and uses it to rap an unabashedly silly two-minute song about … More »

New Music: Black Thought “Noir” (Prod. Adrian Younge)

Not long after dropping the Streams of Thought Vol. 2 EP with Salaam Remi, Black Thought is back with a new track produced by the nostalgia-steeped producer and composer Adrian Younge. If you’ve heard Younge’s work with Ghostface Killah (Twelve Reasons to Die), Royce Da 5’9″ and DJ Premier (PRhyme) or more recently Ali Shaheed Muhammad (The Midnight Hour), then you already know what kind of rich production to expect. And who better than Tariq Trotter to deliver a black history lesson in rhym...

Watch Bad Bunny Perform “Mía” With Jimmy Fallon In A Puerto Rican Parade

There's no real reason why every late-night musical performance has to look the same. Every once in a while, we'll see an artist who finds a way to turn it into something special. And every once in an ever longer while, we'll see someone completely disregard the visual language we've come to expect. That's what … More »

25 Great EPs From 2018

Every year, the parameters for this list get a little more specious. With the rise of streaming services and the decline of physical media, the distinctions between a 7" and a 12" have largely faded away. Today, everything is a "project" or a "collection" or (groan) a "playlist." Artists are still releasing EPs in name, … More »

The Two Competing Dipset Reunions

In the past few days, an image has been showing up on my Twitter feed again and again: a poster of Roc Weekend 2004. The poster shows the entire roster of Roc-A-Fella records, just before Roc-A-Fella Records shattered into a million pieces. And that roster is a head-spinning thing. This was that Icarus … More »

Black Thought – “Streams of Thought, Vol. 2: Traxploitation” (EP Review)

Black Thought is a legendary 47 year old MC from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania most notable for being the frontman of The Roots. Fans were been wanting some sort of solo project for a long time now (especially after his iconic Hot 97 freestyle this past winter) & did just that earlier this summer by dropping a flawless EP with The Soul Council called Streams of Thought. Now if that isn’t enough for you, he’s officially following it up except with Salaam Remi producing it in it’s entirety. The EP k...

Black Thought serves up the first single (and video) from Streams of Thought Vol. 2, the second installment in his solo series that’ll see him join forces with veteran producer Salaam Remi (who picks up the baton from 9th Wonder and the Soul Council, of course). The song is called “Conception,” and in true Black Thought fashion, the title is a double entendre: conception as in forming a thought or idea, which ties into his Streams of Thought theme; and conception as in conceiving a child, wh...
