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.

More Thoughts on Shine: Wale on Everyday Struggle

If I haven't said it on here, I am notably a fan of Joe Budden. I am an avid listener to his podcast and music. His antics outside of rap, I leave that for others to decide but I've seriously enjoyed his new day job on Complex News' Everyday Struggle.

NPR Tiny Desk: Noname

Vulnerability is one of the most important things in art. The ability to convey complex emotions and ideas in form is almost alchemy. Turning nothing into something and attracting the world to it. One of my favorite artists of 2016 came and performed at the NPR:Tiny Desk - Noname. Apparently, NPR is slowly planning on… Continue reading NPR Tiny Desk: Noname

Illdoctrine Repost: MLK on Extremism

Jay Smooth happens to be one of my favorite Radio hosts and video bloggers. He always has pretty insightful comments and also spends a good amount of time talking about one of my favorite topics, hip-hop, and one of the topics I am most ignorant of, politics. It's good to learn. Check him out at… Continue reading Illdoctrine Repost: MLK on Extremism
