Boldy James & The Alchemist – “The Price of Tea in China” (Album Review)

This is the long-awaited sophomore album from Detroit emcee Boldy James. A man who rose to fame with his Alchemist produced 2013 debut M.1.C.S. (My 1st Chemistry Set). This resulted in a contract with Nas’ independent label Mass Appeal Records, but unfortunately Boldy got locked up for a while. He eventually made his comeback a few years ago with his House of Blues mixtape & now after reuniting with the Uncle Al on his Boldface EP a couple months ago, they’re back again with The Price of Tea in...

Lil Nas X – “Rodeo (Remix)” Video (Feat. Nas)

Last week, during his glorious all-star clusterfuck of a Grammy-night performance, young pop-chart leviathan Lil Nas X debuted a new version of "Rodeo," his 2019 Cardi B collaboration. This time, Cardi B wasn't on the song. Instead, Lil Nas X performed with the actual Nas, the rap legend who'd given Lil Nas X … More »

Grammys 2020: Performances Ranked Worst To Best

Lil Nas X rips through ‘Old Town Road’ with BTS, Billy Ray Cyrus and Diplo at the 2020 Grammy Awards

Rapper Lil Nas X had a huge 2019. The 20-year-old, who performed at the 2020 Grammy Awards, put out his single “Old Town Road,” which when country singer-songwriter Billy Ray Cyrus was added, it became a massive hit. The duo performed it for the first time along with EDM artist Diplo at the Stagecoach Country Music Festival in Indio last year.

Lil Nas X Performs Global Remix of “Old Town Road,” Swaps Nas for Cardi B on Surprise “Rodeo” Remix at 2020 Grammys

While 2019 definitely belonged to Lil Nas X, his Grammys debut turned out to be a family affair as he opted to make it a Lil Nas X & Friends moment. As we know, “Old Town Road,” perhaps better known as “Horses in the Back” by your lil’ nieces and nephews, was the song that could not and would not stop streaming last year. Part of the reason for that is because Lil Nas X kept remixing the damn song over and over again. The original remix featured the iconic Billy Ray Cyrus. After that, he saddled...

Beginning the 26th of December, a globe-spanning group of millions of people of African descent will celebrate Kwanzaa, the seven-day festival of communitarian values created by scholar Maulana Karenga in 1966. The name of the festival is adapted from a Swahili phrase that refers to “the first fruits,” and is meant to recall ancient African harvest celebrations.

Boldy James & The Alchemist – “Boldface” (EP Review)

Boldy James is a 36 year old MC from Detroit, Michigan who blew up on the scene with his Alchemist produced 2013 debut M.1.C.S. (My 1st Chemistry Set). He then landed a contract with Nas’ independent label Mass Appeal Records, but sadly went to prison for a while. Boldy eventually made his comeback a couple years ago with his House of Blues mixtape & now it seems like he’s trying to rekindle the flame with Uncle Al on his 3rd EP. It all starts off with “Ill Advised”, where Boldy gets mafioso...
