2012 was a year of newfound loves, and so many ones gone astray. It was a year of new beginnings, and endings that were a long time coming. It was a year of beautiful births and painful deaths. It was as beautiful as it was tumultuous, and as profound as shallow. But, if you are reading this then you have another year to be thankful for, because as painful as life can be, if it's just equally as beautiful, then it's all worth it. It is better to have loved and lost than to [...]

Ironically I had just posted this track on my Facebook because it still resonated with respect to the issue that preoccupied me the most this past year and then I saw Nas was doing this show tonight in NYC so it made sense to re-post. I've been sick with flu the past few days and am still recovering so whether i can get to some wrap-up posts before 2013 arrives is debatable although if you follow me on Pinterest , you already have a sense of what my album list is going to look [...]
Day 3 of our 4-day countdown of the best of the year. Part 1 (80-61) can be found here . Part 2 (60-41) can be found here . To recap: AlbatRoss and I had 2 guidelines we stuck to in compiling this list: 1) it had to be rap (meaning no R&B - Frank Ocean and Miguel had killer years but they won't be found on this list) and 2) one song per project on the list. We did this (including honorable mentions, of course) to make sure we brought a good variety from the list and not to [...]
2012 left me a bit blah. I'll always find at least 5 great albums in any year that trips me out and will be listened to for years to come. The top 10 i've listed here to me I feel they've hit it right out of the park. You may have noticed that i haven't blogged much about new [...]
Nas - Life Is Good The xx - Coexist Frank Ocean - channel ORANGE Beach House - Bloom Kendrick Lamar - good kid, m.A.A.d city
Arlissa vs Nas - Hard To Love Somebody I’m sharing this song because it’s one of those songs you should hear and know about, but I’m not convinced Arlissa is a big deal at this point. Nas must see something in her, because he makes a serious cameo here. That said, I’ll wait to hear a strong solo showing before considering Arlissa a name to remember. I have no doubts this will make its way into DJ sets quite often in early 2013 nonetheless. // http://soundcloud.com/arlissa/ arlissa-hard-to-love

#35: The Head and the Heart @ Forecastle [Original Post] I'd heard a song or two by Head and the Heart going into their show at Forecastle, but I'll admit that I was really just seeing them because there wasn't a lot of competition for their time slot at Forecastle. But just like what happens [...]
