Kanye West - My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy Artwork

Kanye West - My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy

R. Kelly - Love Letter Artwork

R. Kelly - Love Letter

R. Kelly is more than an artist, he’s a writer’s dream. Now that Michael has passed, he’s the most fascinating man in music, an artist whose overwhelming talent has created a bubble around him in which the rules of... Read Full Review
Kid Cudi - Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager Artwork

Kid Cudi - Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager

Kid Cudi is looking more and more like the Kurt Cobain of rap. Like the Nirvana frontman, the music that earned Scott Mescudi legions of adoring fans was fueled by feelings of alienation and anger towards those who devoted... Read Full Review

Ne-Yo - Libra Scale

I can’t believe I get a second chance to write about Ashanti Syndrome in just a few weeks, although this time I’m not making the somewhat obvious Nelly connection. No, this time the latest victim of Ashanti Syndrome – a... Read Full Review
Diddy-Dirty Money - Last Train to Paris Artwork

Diddy-Dirty Money - Last Train to Paris

Cee-Lo Green - The Lady Killer Artwork

Cee-Lo Green - The Lady Killer

Thomas DeCarlo Callaway has re-invented himself to a degree that hip-hop has never seen. Or perhaps it’s more accurate to say that Cee-Lo Green, as he’s more commonly known, has steadily become more and more himself; his... Read Full Review
