  The 2019 Grammy Awards were unique compared to their predecessors. The show, held February 10, was female driven this year, as host Alicia Keys opened alongside Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez and Michelle Obama. The women asked the rhetorical question, “Who runs the world?” before the first performance of the night, and the event proved […]

Live A Little

Music has a variety of genres with concepts that can be interpreted differently. Some songs have deep meanings while some are straightforward focusing more on the sound rather than the lyrics. I like to focus on the lyrics of most R&B songs which is my favorite genre, but when I listen to rap I pay […]

I believe Iggy is culturally appropriating black southern women in the song “Fancy”. Not necessarily on purpose but she is. I believe she might think that to appeal to listeners as a rapper she has to look a certain  way for her fans. In order to do so she has to attract the type of […]

“I used to get teased for being black And now I’m here and I’m not black enough ‘Cause I’m not acting tough Or making stories up ’bout where I’m actually from, yeah”   Drake raps on the track “You & the 6,” from his surprise album If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late. This take on racial […]

Dua hari lepas, satu lempangan yang rasa bisa menempeleng industri musik tanah air yang sudah memang tenat dan sakit belakang. Legenda rap, Altimet (cantik juga dibahasakan MC Doom Malaysia) telah ‘packing’ microphone beliau. Namun begitu, beliau sempat meninggalkan satu album berjudul ‘O’ sebagai tanda ingatan pada peminat musik sebenar. Dari awal hingga akhir, album ini […]

Dammit Kevin!

This wasn’t supposed to be a mental health post. In fact, the working title for this post was “I WENT TO ASTROWORLD AND ALL I GOT WAS THIS SHITTY BLOG POST”, but I didn’t think it was good enough. Even after pre-gaming at a luxury hotel, witnessing Travis Scott’s near-immaculate production value, and having survived a post-concert, […]

As i listened to Childish Gambino’s song “Back Packer”, he said “Fuck the cool kids, not Chuck Inglish/ but the people who think that hating on me makes them distinguished/ Like, “what is this nigga doing?/ Rap is for real blacks/ I hate that fucking faggot, man/ He think that we feel that?”/ it appealed […]

I was struck with the dreaded flu last week (but am thankfully on the mend) and was prescribed cough syrup for the yucky cough I was dealing with. I’m no stranger to cough medicine, but my doctor wasn’t messing around and prescribed me codeine cough syrup. Like the stuff I’m pretty sure they write rap […]

EYE SEE EVERYTHING

Cultural appropriation is the adoption of some aspects from another culture without the consent of people who belong to that culture. In my opinion, Iggy Azalea is culturally appropriating Black Southern culture. I feel as if she does not mimic black women of rap. I see Iggy as a foreign rapper who came to the […]

When it comes to underrated hip-hop, I don’t think a lot of people would put Kendrick Lamar in that camp. I think people would put artists like Twista, Techn9ne, Hopsin, MF Doom, Adina Howard or Flying Lotus in that group. Or specific albums like Organix or Soul Survivor. Or in my opinion, Tetsuo and Youth.  But I feel like Kendrick’s untitled […]

Van Gogh cut off his ear. Ernest Hemingway’s life was surrounded by suicide that haunted him until he committed suicide himself. Whitney Houston struggled with drug addiction and her sexuality for years before she drowned in a hotel bathtub. Does this mean great art really does come from great suffering? If it does, maybe we […]
