Philly underground Hip-Hop legends Jedi Mind Tricks today release their 9th studio album The Bridge And The Abyss and with the cover artwork similar to 2015’s The Thief And The Fallen, this is more of a follow-on from that LP than any of their earlier albums. This however […]
What Went Wrong Or Right With...?
Artist, Caricaturist, Critic, And Counterculturist. Sorting the wheat from the celebrity chaff since 2012...
Nas’ latest album Nasir is out today and unfortunately it’s a disappointment. This LP is not only short, it’s also mediocre, almost sounding like it was created in the space of a few hours with some left-over production from Kanye West. The overall feeling is underwhelming to say […]
We’re living in a time in which we’re told never to generalise and not to stereotype, and yet the media seems content in putting generations into a box. It seems that everywhere you turn these days, some headline or hashtag will pop-up and tell you what the pissing […]
When you criticise someone’s celebrity hero, fans usually have a hissy fit. They can’t comprehend why someone would besmirch their all-time favourite star. Of course, hating a celebrity can be for something as trivial as not liking their face all the way to something significant such as disapproving […]
It’s always astounding watching the pliant public buy into the latest establishment-supporting, media-created story or event. On May 19th this year, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be married and this date will mark yet another occasion where the powers that be re-educate or even brainwash society into […]
Remember when Riff Raff showed up on the scene wearing cornrows and gold teeth? He looked like a culture-appropriating joke; part caricature, part racist stereotype, the whole look was embarrassing to say the least. A white artist trying oh so hard to look “black” is embarrassing enough but […]
Cardi B is a mediocre rapper. Just because she released an album that didn’t completely sound like trash (and sold well) it doesn’t change that fact. With her below-average flow and delivery, I guess this is the right period in Hip-Hop history for someone so amateur to become […]
Bronx stripper-turned-rapper Cardi B has released her debut album Invasion Of Privacy and I have to say I’m conflicted about this one. I was expecting to completely and utterly hate this album but at least two-thirds of it is catchy and contagious. Cardi B has her place in […]
Beginning with the pearl of wisdom “There’s a lot of hating going on”, Rich The Kid’s debut album The World Is Yours almost sounds like it’s pre-empting criticism and a few tracks into this release you realise why. Rich The Kid isn’t the most distinctive rapper out there, […]
Piers Morgan is such an an irritating twat. This hack journalist has somehow remained employed in both the news and entertainment sectors despite showing no discernible skill in any aspect of print or broadcast media. Piers, to give his full name, Piers Stefan Pughe-Morgan (yes, even his name […]
What do Kid Rock, Ted Nugent, Jon Voight, Gary Busey, Jesse James, Scott Baio, Lou Ferrigno, Clint Eastwood, Caitlyn Jenner, Kirstie Alley, Azealia Banks, and Stacey Dash all have in common? Well, aside from being annoying, conservative has-beens, they all endorsed Donald Trump for president. This list of […]
Decades ago, rap groups like M.O.P. and Onyx used to shout their lyrics in an aggressive way and although their topics were generally the same, their choruses, music videos, and most importantly albums always contained enough variation to be worthy of praise. I guess in terms of vocal […]
Apparently, nothing says “I love you” like commemorating a Christian martyr who was executed because he refused to convert to Roman paganism. Let’s face it, whether you think the legend of Saint Valentine is romantic or not (and it definitely isn’t) Valentine’s Day is simply another commercialised celebration […]
