The Movement

What's your Movement Vocabulary? Today I pushed myself to do 3 new things: 1.)

Vibe Fridays: Big K.R.I.T. – Keep The Devil Off

Every once and a while, I go back into my archives of mixtapes that can't be found on streaming platforms to check out 4Eva and a Day, my personal favorite mixtape by Big K.R.I.T. from Mississippi. K.R.I.T. is from the same stock as J. Cole, a rapper that produces and makes his own soul-sampling, but… Continue reading Vibe Fridays: Big K.R.I.T. – Keep The Devil Off

H.E.R. Vol 2 & H.I.M. Vol 2

The music business is a fickle industry. The way to attack marketing and creation of music is a very fluid in approach and can easily fail horribly. After my last review of H.I.M. and H.E.R., I enjoyed both projects but was unsure of the places H.E.R. and H.I.M. would fill. Less than six months later, I… Continue reading H.E.R. Vol 2 & H.I.M.
