In 2008 I was sent by the now-defunct BPM magazine to Berlin and Vienna to document the emerging Future Bass movement percolating from the dank basements of those Teutonic capitals.

Starting early this past summer, Raekwon figured out for us that #TBT can mean more than posting old acne-scarred photos of prom night. Since then, vintage soul and R&B jams got a Raekwon weekly redo thanks to a little Wu-spiration. The “Throwback-Thursday/TBT” mixes included new flows over the likes of many classics from the Gap Band, the Isley Brothers and The Spinners, […]


With the Wu set to release their much-anticipated sixth studio album A Better Tomorrow due in a couple weeks (December 2nd to be exact), Shaolin’s finest drops a track to whet y’alls appetites, “Necklace”.

The must-have 50-Year anniversary 5-disc anthology

With a 51-year band history, The Kinks  have carved their place in the Rock Rushmore largely thanks to the brothers Davies, Dave and Ray. Beginning with their early bill-topping singles such as “You Really Got Me” that cemented their place in the famed British invasion, The Kinks continued to make music deep into the 90’s. Now that fifty years have passed […]

One of the more underrated Wu Tang killer assassins, Inspectah Deck — aka Rebel INS — just dropped a mixtape collecting some of his recent singles and several unreleased tracks. Cynthia’s Son contains 19 songs of Inspectah Deck’s highly polished rhyme schemes, with about half the tracks produced by INS himself. Forever entering the hip-hop canon with one […]
