What's cool about August is that he's not an R&B thug, nor tries to be, he's incredibly humble and just let's his music speak for itself. I'm excited for 'Testimony'.
It's like watching redevelopment porn with the 360 views of the property. There is so much that could be done to make this another destination. And they still have a train car in main building?!?! If it's salvageable, Atlanta could have it's first train car restaurant. And then get Living Walls to come out and get some of those artists to do some of their sick wall art. I can see it now.
We're in the south, home of what once was The Confederate States of America. These statues and monuments only represent what was once here.
History is history, and if there is one thing I know about history, it isn't pretty (for the most part) and it repeats itself. Regardless of how we may feel about it, it's their to remind us of a time and place that we hope we don't go back to. Tearing them down or removing them would be pointless and said actions would only support a hypocritical stance against propaganda.
@The Gorgeous JR. If you want to say JD is like Diddy in the sense of what he puts out, then yeah. But as far as business is concerned, 2 totally different people. Diddy swears he's superman while JD actually takes the time to work with and nurture each artist he works with. The proof is in his ability to put out a number one hit every year since '92.
Gotta love the comments from 'certain' people. All Hip-Hop artists are 'Gangsters' and all Black politicians are 'idiots' (I think I've had too many hops in my craft beer). LOL. Gives me a good ol' fashioned hoot.
I need to see this 'Fela' when it comes to town, I've heard so much about it. Besides, I haven't been to a broadway show in decades. Need to go.
If it's one thing I've learned about rap beefs, its that they have less to do with ego and more to do with a.......wait for it.........WOMAN.
This interview was on point, I really like how she expounded on her experiences and really didn't hold anything back without revealing too much. I initially thought about my first review of the 'Glory' EP, and how I didn't really like it at first because it was too pop. I preferred 'Ignorant Art' because of it's grittiness and hardcore sound, but I failed to see that the goal was to create something that had actual structure, which is what 'Ignorant Art' lacks. I'm glad she decided to do an EP instead of a whole album for the sake of that concept alone becuase then that would have been a waste of effort. I'm really looking forward to 'Trap Gold.'
