Frank Ocean Has Turned Into a Boring, Pretentious Recluse, Just Like Lauryn Hill

Frank Ocean, the once red-hot R&B rising star of 2011-2012, has pretty much been a rebel without a cause ever since the release of his debut album, Channel Orange.Like Lauryn Hill, this debut album was lauded as an instant classic and it cemented Frank’s rising star. This was after a man who was co-writing for Beyoncé and collaborating with Jay Z and Kanye West.But after the success of his debut, Frank became quiet, isolated and reclusive. He separated himself from the ragtag collective, Odd Fut...

Listen to My Top 5 Albums from Nas

We kicked things off last week with the late, great 2Pac. This week, we’ll move to my favorite rapper alive and that’s Nas. Nas has been in the game over 25 years as he made his first appearance on a record in 1991. Live at the Barbeque by Main Source was the introduction to Nas. The verse on the track garnered so much attention for Nas and it landed him a record deal. In 1994, Nas dropped his debut album, Illmatic and it has been called one of the best hip hop records of all-time. Nas have re...

You Can Feel the Venue's Heartbeat on Every Page of 'Showtime at the Apollo'

None When, where, and how do we best measure the national pulse of an "American" music? What is it about a place, a stage, a literal and figurative platform for the American dream of musical success that brings people back to perform, to watch, to believe in the potential of making a permanent connection? Our food, our language, and so much of who we are as a functioning society has been expressed through the pulse of our immigrant sensibility. We have plucked banjos and bowed fiddles at the Ry...

Why the 61st Annual Grammy Awards Telecast Was the Queerest, Fiercest, and the Best Yet

None Even if you didn't watch it, you knew that this year's Grammys were like any other's year's Grammy Award telecast: it was simply far, far too long.Yet that wasn't the only negative to be noted on the ceremony's 61st iteration. This time around, there were far too few awards were given out during the televised portion, several acceptance speech winners were played off (and twice abruptly cut off), one of the night's big winners wasn't even there (Childish Gambino/Donald Glover), and Recordi...

Grammys 2019: Women dominate the award show performances

The 61st Annual Grammy Awards ceremony was dominated by strong female-led performances.

Producer Linda Perry says her Grammy nomination is really already a win

Of course singer-songwriter and noted music producer Linda Perry would be elated to walk away from the 61st Annual Grammy Awards on Sunday night, Feb. 10, at Staples Center in Los Angeles cradling the shiny trophy for producer of the year, non classical, but as far as she’s concerned the nomination alone is really already a win.

On Black Girl Magic and Georgia Anne Muldrow's Latest, 'Overload'

None The song "Vital Transformation" is solemn yet expansive, austere yet hopeful. It floats along, kickdrum and handclap accents punctuating the lyrics instead of marking four-on-the-floor. The song itself a swirl, it begins with the swirling, layered incantation, "transforming changing higher spiraling higher", repeated three times, along with the insistence, "it's vital". The lyrics read like stanzas of poetry on the page, but take on a warm, relatable quality when their author, Georgia Anne...

Comment on cabbage and mushroom “lasagna” by Kim

I’ve been reading your blog for years. You are the first place I go when I’m either looking for a specific recipe or for something new.

The Grammys Are Bowing Down To Women & It's About Time

The last Grammy Awards were a true shit show for the representation of women. The one woman nominated for Album of the Year, Lorde, was not invited to perform on the show — but all the men nominated were. Only one woman, Alessia Cara, won an award during the actual telecast. Women were shut out as songwriters, with no Record of the Year nominations, and in Producer of the Year, not only were there no nominations for women, but no woman had been nominated since 2004 (!!!). When questioned about ...

Now here’s a pleasant surprise. In the latest installment in his freestyle series, Funk Flex invites newcomer Tierra Whack up to HOT 97 to showcase her talents.
