Meet Dave, The Post-Grime Future Of UK Rap

It’s Been 20 Years Since “One Week”: Ed Robertson Looks Back At Barenaked Ladies’ Mad Hit

But amidst all the slick beats there emerged a goofy, lite rap-rock jam that was so undeniable, it managed … More »

Craig Mack & The Golden Age Of The Posse-Cut Remix

It would be a terrible shame if the entire legacy of Craig Mack, who passed away last week at a way-too-young age, boiled down to the "Flava In Ya Ear" remix. For one thing, "Flava In Ya Ear" was already a massive song before Puff Daddy corralled a bunch of Mack's peers into jumping on … More »

2018's Super Bowl ads have been largely defined by a shift to a more philanthropic team and generally avoiding any overtly 'sexualized' ads like the of past Super Bowls. It appears that most brands are trying to play it safe and trying to appeal to the more social media savvy audiences that can seemingly be a bewildering mix of liberal, conservative and politically correct attitudes. At the same time, this year's Super Bowl ad costs topped the $5 million dollar per 30 second ad mark, which i...
