Angie Martinez: The Voice of Hip Hop History

Angie Martinez, commonly known as the Voice of New York, did an interview on The Breakfast Club this morning to promote her new memoir, My Voice, that’s being released Tuesday, May 17, 2016.

I’m a huge fan of Angie! (I low key want to be the next Angie Martinez) If you’re a fan of hip hop, man or woman, you know and respect who Angie is in the hip hop culture.

However, I don’t want to start any comparisons, because he is a star in his own right. I’m so excited to see Silas’s growth into becoming the star I know he is destined to be. Check out his new video for his single “Gullah Gullah Island” and listen to his new project “The Day I Died” below. Continue reading A Rare Talent on the Rise: Dear Silas

One of the most important artists of this generation, Kendrick Lamar, used his platform for a greater purpose yet again at last night’s Grammys. Kendrick is not an entertainer, although his talent and energy foster excitement; he is an artist. As Beyonc√© stated before announcing a Grammy award last night,

“Art is an unapologetic celebration of culture through expression.” – Beyonc√©.

Kendrick did just that, express his thoughts on what’s happening in the African American community unapologetically while celebrating his African heritage. Continue reading “This is modern day slavery”: Kendrick Lamar’s POWERFUL 2016 Grammy Performance (Video and Lyrics)
