The Hip-Hop Catch Up: Lil Wayne, Drake, Jay-Z, Big KRIT & more

If there is one section of music that suffered during my race to the end of the semester, it was hip-hop. As I lament with each new Nark mixtape, it has become harder and harder to regularly find new listenable hip-hop. However, there were some enjoyable jams released over the past month or so that […]

REMIX FRIDAY: Kaytranada, Kendrick Lamar, Panic City, MNDR, Todd Edwards & more
