Pharoahe Monch – PTSD

Pharoahe Monch is one of my favorite artists and this album just adds to my admiration and appreciation for what he brings to the universe. This album is very personal, the production is great and of course it’s Pharoahe so the lyricism is amazing as usual. You can purchase it here, you won’t be disapointed […]

Rich Dad, Poor Dad

Big KRIT is easily one of my favorite artists and Rich Dad Poor Dad is one of my favorite songs.  I have been following his work for a few years now and had the privilege of going to show not long ago.  His music is meaningful, heartfelt, and he is passionate about what he does. […]

Ab-soul -Time is of the Essence

Ok so Ab-soul is the most recent additions to my list of favorite rappers.  He’s 1/4 of Black Hippy (Jay Rock, Kendrick Lamar, ScHoolboy Q, Ab-Soul) and an artist on the label TDE (Top Dawg Entertainment) based in California. In his music he strays far from the typical rap subjects sometimes without the listener even realizing it. I love the concept of […]

Pushin’ Against A Stone – Valerie June

I first discovered Valerie June in the video above.  While perusing the interweb, as I do, I cam across pictures of her and thought her locs were really great so I looked up who she was. When I heard her voice I was immediately intrigued, it sounded so unique and I would have never guessed […]

Walking Revolution

Dee-1 is one of my favorite artist not only because he makes great music, but also because he walks what he talks.  This song is found on his new project Psalms of David II, it’s free go get it. I actually created this graphic for him to go with the song:

Dear God 2.0 – The Roots

I really love this song, it speaks on some of the things I battle with.  It’s not secret this world has some terrible things and people in it.  I went through a period where I questioned what I believed and really tried to figure out who I wanted to be.  I can say I ever […]

True Love

I discovered Loaded Lux a couple of months ago.  He’s possibly best known as an excellent battle rapper.  He’s more than that though he also has a message which is the main thing I look for in music I support.  This song especially spoke to me as a father, not just a dad, a father.  Someone who […]

King of Sorrow

I really love Sade.  Her voice is so smooth and I don’t know she’s great.  I really like this song King of Sorrow, it’s a little depressing but I kinda relate with depressing music.     Oh she’s pretty beautiful too

Suggested Listening: SigNif

I discovered SigNif earlier this year and was really impressed with her flow and the fact that she didn’t sound like many female or male rappers.  Too many people are following trends nowadays, I was pleasantly surprised to come across someone walking their own path.  I started following her on twitter and she’s cool people too. Oh right here’s […]
