Feast Your Eyes (and Ears) on…Jay Park

Feast Your Eyes (and Ears) on…Jay Park

YO. Real talk: I love K-Pop, but have typically been less impressed with the milquetoast dudes of K-Pop than I have been with the dominatingly talented girl groups. Jay Park, however, has me completely rethinking all of my ideas of right and wrong. I saw his video for “1HUNNIT” at a recent trip to Prince(…)

Moneyworth’s Genius Rap Crush Temporary Tattoos

Moneyworth’s Genius Rap Crush Temporary Tattoos

Moneyworth, AKA Meaghan Garvey, is many things to many people. For me, she is these things: 1. She wrote that amazing article “Why Are You So Intimdated By Girls Liking Rap Music“. 2. She’s one of my favorite people to follow on Twitter for many reasons – her love of semi-obscure ’90s R&B to name(…)

The Banger Report: Vol. 7, Bad Bitches

It just so happens that in the past week, I encountered three songs from three extraordinary females, all of which were more than sassy – they were straight up bitchtastic.

Azealia Banks in Video Form = Today’s Reason to Live

So, I know I just posted about Azealia Banks, but that was when the “212” video wasn’t available online. And trust me, you need to see/hear it. I first thought that “Runnin’” was my favorite AB track, but I was wrong. “212” is the most exciting song I’ve heard this year…maybe tied with “Ni**as in(…)

All Your Summer Jams Are Belong to Kreayshawn?

I’m still in the midst of working out my feelings on 21-year-old Oakland rapper/director Kreayshawn. Her rap skills are marginal, her stylistic choices are idunno and her lyrics are a little on the remedial creative writing side. But, BUT, there’s something about her that is mesmerizing, and it’s not just that she’s hott. She’s got(…)
