Banger Alert: Future Brown – Wanna Party Ft. Tink

Banger Alert: Future Brown – Wanna Party Ft. Tink

First things first: Fatima Al Qadiri is a creative genius. Born in Senegal, raised in Kuwait and currently living in Brooklyn, she’s both a visual artist and musician/producer. Her 2011 album “Genre Specific-Xperience” is probably the record I listen to most on planes – it’s haunting, engaging and calming all at once, so perfect for(…)

Kanye + Janelle Monae Bring Joy to My Heart on Live TV

Kanye + Janelle Monae Bring Joy to My Heart on Live TV

The extreme joy that both of these performances have brought to my heart is RATHER IMMENSE. I’ve watched both Kanye West/Charlie Wilson/The Roots/children’s choir performing THE AMAZING “Bound 2″ on Fallon and Janelle Monae performing “Dance Apocalyptic” on Letterman multiple times and neither has gotten old yet. Please trust me and watch both of these(…)

Animals Ask People: Amy Yee of Maeven

If you love vintage clothing and accessories as much as I do, you know that it can be really difficult to find a store or seller that matches your taste. Maeven is like the rare vintage unicorn I’ve been seeking all my life – the selection is big, but not overwhelmingly so and everything is(…)

Insane Video Alert x 2: Jay-Z & Kanye West and El-P

Insane Video Alert x 2: Jay-Z & Kanye West and El-P

Holy crap. Two videos were revealed to the world this week – both of which pleasantly disturbed me in very different ways. First up – from El-P’s TOTALLY AMAZING new record Cancer for Cure – is his new video for “The Full Retard.” (It’s a Tropic Thunder reference, people.) It’s delightfully NSFW and even more(…)

The Banger Report: Vol. 1

SO MANY BANGERS, SO LITTLE TIME. Bangers seem to be popping up all over these days, whether they’re hip hop bangers, K-pop bangers, classic bangers, alt bangers or showtune bangers (THEY’RE REAL). So many, in fact, that I was inspired to create a new PA feature called The Banger Report, in which I will present(…)

Emojis in Moscow (Roman in Moscow Remix)

The moment we were dazzled by the glory of Aziz Ansari and Matthew Shawver’s masterful emoji remix of “N*ggas in Paris,” PA Melissa and I knew that we had to take the emojis to Moscow for a remix of “Roman in Moscow” by the one and only Nicki Minaj. I can definitely tell you that(…)

Emojis in Paris: Day Maker

So here I was, watching Frank Zappa on an old episode of SNL, bumming about having a cold and reading twitter. What happened next: Aziz Ansari (already famous for his previously hilarious Watch the Throne inspired tweets) BLEW MY F’ING MIND with this emoji “remix” of Jay-Z and Kanye West’s ultimate extreme jam “Niggas in(…)
