The legendary Roots crew just released their 13th studio album, the beautifully sad Undun.
DRAKE – TAKE CARE (NOVEMBER 15) I like Take Care. I think it’s a much more cohesive project than Drake’s debut, Thank Me Later. Though, if you let him tell it, So Far Gone is his true debut, and Take Care simply picks up where the critically acclaimed mixtape left off. I’d be inclined to agree. There’s … Read more
Jay-Z is a Hip-Hop anomaly. He one of the biggest and most influential voices in music today – you could argue that he’s one of the most important figures in entertainment ever.

Stevie Wonder is one of the greatest artists that this world will ever come to know. For 50 (!!!) years, he has touched lives with his incredible talent, social activism, and vibrant spirit. I’ve been listening to his music since I was a kid, and I’ll be a fan for life. It’s hard for me … Read more
I haven’t given up on my Favorite Albums post (it’s just taking forever.) In the meantime, here’s a run-down of some select releases from the past month or so. Definitely a lot of gems here! More after the jump.
