Music Choice: 6lack

I have absolutely loved 6lack since his first album. Not only did he present a flawless debut project, but with each single has managed to deliver and perform to the same quality. His current song that I have one repeat is “Nonchalant.” My favorite line is “I’m somewhere between humble and hell nah.” Know that […]

This series is jam-packed with A-list performers: Laurence Fishburne, Larenz Tate, Wood Harris, Tika Sumpter, Omari Hardwick, […]

4:44 (album review)

The album begins powerfully, with the record “Kill Jay Z,” we are immediately dropped into the mind of a reflective and introspective JAY. He touches on “sins” he has committed over the years, and mistakes that he has nearly made by losing his family, i.e., “don’t be Eric Benet” who did indeed let Halle Barry […]
