Daniel Caesar – Freudian (Album Review)

A few months ago, I wrote a piece for Vibe Fridays: Daniel Caesar – Get You. In it I talked about Daniel Caesar, a relatively unknown from Toronto with buttery smooth vocals, church background, and soulful lyrics about love and life. Today I'll talk about his debut album, Freudian. Let me say this clearly. Daniel Caesar… Continue reading Daniel Caesar – Freudian (Album Review)

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.

Vibe Fridays: Daniel Caesar – Get You

Right around the time I found Khalid – Location, I also found a guy named Daniel Caesar. He had amazing writing, rich voice, and super addictive songs. But, I knew nothing about him. Two months later, I finally got around to writing about the song that has been in constant rotation, Get You. Daniel Caesar -… Continue reading Vibe Fridays: Daniel Caesar – Get You

Syd tha Kyd Grows Up – Fin (Album Review)

I have a confession to make. As much as I was a blog rat from 2008-2012, I've never listened to Odd Future (or Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All). I had no desire for Tyler the Creator or Earl Sweatshirt. The first album I listened to by their affiliates were Frank Ocean (nostalgia,ULTRA) and… Continue reading Syd tha Kyd Grows Up – Fin (Album Review)

How Rapper’s that are Christian are Helping Me through 2016 and Beyond

I typically would have written another Friday Vibe on music that I have stumbled upon but I just couldn't this week. I have listened to Joey Bada$$'s All-Amerikkkan Badass and Goldlink's At What Cost and believe both are amazing projects, but this week I wanted to talk about how music is helping me through a change. Coloring… Continue reading How Rapper’s that are Christian are Helping Me through 2016 and Beyond

Old Vibe: Bijoux 22 – Elijah Blake

Today, I wanted to share one of my old favorite EPs that still continues to be on constant rotation. Bijoux 22, by Elijah Blake has found a permanent place in my heart for spawning one of my favorite songs of all time. I just wish people knew about it. Since I have a platform, why… Continue reading Old Vibe: Bijoux 22 – Elijah Blake

I Decided. (Album Review)

As a Detroit native, I have a very special relationship with Big Sean. Sean and I attended the same high school for a year (Cass Technical High School). I knew of him but nothing particularly special, but it's always interesting to know where people came from and watch them develop long distance. I'll admit, I… Continue reading I Decided.

Sho Baraka – The Narrative

Following the themes of this week, how should a Christian act? How should a Christian look? What should he talk about? How should she interact with the world? What should be the mark left in the wake of a person with their heart on God? In truthfulness, this is something that has never been nailed… Continue reading Sho Baraka – The Narrative

H.E.R. Vol 1 and H.I.M. Vol 1

Cloaked artists. Mystery music. Moods set by smokey lounges, late night drives, and midnight rendezvous. Slowed down and sexy tones pioneered by the Weeknd before he moved to the forefront of music and became a Starboy or went to Kiss Land. Mystery artists are all the rage today and today, I'll introduce two. Note: Sequels… Continue reading H.E.R. Vol 1 and H.I.M. Vol 1
