Who Has the Power?

Fri., Jun. 16
There's always that one show that everybody watches, but you don't. For me that was Power. A lot of people that I know watch the show, including my mother. She was always talking about how good it is. I just never got into it until now. The show centers around James St. Patrick, who is the owner of a New York City nightclub called Truth. This is his legal job. His other job is the distributor for one of the biggest drug cartels in New York City.

DAMN, it's Kendrick Lamar

Wed., May. 31
GRAMMY-award winning rap superstar Kendrick Lamar released his third studio album DAMN last month. There was a lot of hype and anticipation for this album. A lot of people including myself were wondering whether the overall sound of the album would mimic his sophomore album, To Pimp a Butterfly. After the release of the first single from the new album, "Humble" the answer was no. Lamar went the route of using hard hitting beats over his vicious flows and it's a refreshing change of pace.
