Nicki Minaj released the cover art for her upcoming single “Anaconda” (available Monday July 28th), which was met with adoration from thirsty fans, and ridicule from the mainstream media.

Mickey Blue (W.A.T.S.) – Occupied Elsewhere [Audio]

There are many words to describe this song. In fact, I can write an essay on it’s importance to me and my life. But I won’t because it will take away from the effect it will have on you; how you perceive Mickey Blue’s message. I will tell you this though, the first time I encountered […]

We of course do not support domestic violence of any kind, but the memes and gifs created in response to the Solange vs Jay-Z elevator ride of insanity were just too good not to share.

5 Amazing Drake Tracks That Never Made An Album [Audio]

17 Older Black People That Look Younger Than Lorde [Gallery]

During her performance at the 2014 Grammys, many people got a good look at 17 year old songstress, Lorde (Ella Marija Lani Yelich-O’Connor), for the first time without photo shop or special lighting.

99 Problems Jay Z Had In 2013 [Gallery]

Saying that Jay Z had a good year is an understatement. In 2013 he was executive producer of NBA 2K13;  he diversified his portfolio by launching the Roc Nation Sports management agency; his wife dropped an album, which almost broke the internet; he dropped his 12th album, Magna Carta/Holy Grail, to critical acclaim; and he […]

37 Examples Of #AskRKelly Backfiring Horribly [Gallery]

A day after he dropped his album, Black Panties, R. Kelly (or R. Kelly’s terrible PR team) decided it would be a good idea to conduct an ill-advised Q&A session via Twitter, with the #AskRKelly hashtag. Given that nobody on the planet Earth has forgotten about R. Kelly’s many quirks and that underage-urination-sex-scandal, #BlackTwitter decided to remind […]

Eminem’s Rap God Video Is Everything It Needed To Be [Video]

Rap God was already an instant classic in my mind from the very first time I heard it, as Eminem unleashed one of his most lyrically driven tracks in years! While 6 minute songs are absolutely uncommon, any fan of his will tell you that it still wasn’t enough. Eminem’s Marshall Mathers LP 2 album […]

Bound 3: Seth Rogan & James Franco Get Weird In The Best Way [Video]

Bound 3: Seth Rogan & James Franco Get Weird In The Best Way [Video]

From what we’ve heard this Bound 3 parody video by Seth Rogan and James Franco came into existence, because they were ahead of schedule while filming The Interview. Kanye has yet to respond to the making of this incredibly accurate parody, but I can only imagine hope that he does so with a Twitter tirade […]

4 Weird Things Deadmau5 Did This Week

DillanPonders – P$$Y (Produced By DropxLife) [Audio]

I wasn’t familiar with Toronto’s DillanPonders until I was sent this song, P$$Y, but I’m definitely a fan so far.

Miley Cyrus Riding A Wrecking Ball Naked Of The Day [Video]

Miley Cyrus‘ new music video for her Wrecking Ball (40 million views in 2 days) has taught us 3 important things: 1 – We were better off when she was “just” twerking. 2 – It’s not enough to simply appreciate your favourite sledgehammer verbally- it must also be fervently licked. 3 – Terry Richardson isn’t […]

About a month ago my friend introduced me to  Stefan Lafontaine, and I’ve been hooked to his classy blend of deep house ever since. For reasons I can’t understand, he’s virtually unknown.
