Childish Gambino

Childish Gambino - Melrose

Not so long ago, a rapper softly singing his own hooks would have been considered ridiculous. Now, even Eminem is belting out emotional ballads. Though Stronger Than I Was made me wonder whether the pendulum had swung just a...Read More

Rich Quick

Rich Quick ft. Rakka Iriscience & Reef The Lost Cauze - Travelin' Man (STREECE Remix)

Dee-1 - I'll Pay for It

There's not a person among us who hasn't thought, from time to time, about what he or she would do with a billion bucks. Me, I'd probably move to Paris (after setting my mom up in a new crib, of course). New Orleans...Read More

Marco Polo ft. Talib Kweli & DJ Premier - G.U.R.U.

Talib Kweli

Talib Kweli - The Wormhole

Nothing makes me groan like hearing an otherwise-intelligent rapper go off on a half-baked tirade about the Illuminati. Apparently, I'm not the only one. In the opening bars of The Wormhole, the lead single off his next...Read More
