Good Week, “Bad” Remix
Wale began the week with a bang. On Monday, the rapper dropped the highly anticipated remix to his hit single “Bad,” which features (almost) everyone’s favorite pop princess, Rihanna. Though the tempo hasn't changed, the remix is drenched in even more sin. Wale continues to share jewels on dealing with beautiful yet emotionally [...]

trillectro hip hop + electronic music festival from DC to BC on Vimeo.
As I've said before, last year's first Trillectro Festival was a great look for D.C.

Yeah, it rained, but no one seemed [...]

Now is a fine time to make money as an electronic-music producer. That’s a fact that hasn’t escaped a few companies in the D.C. area: Since 2010, the local dance-music biz has gone from fledgling to booming.

First off, the guy in this video was the most trill dude at Trillectro Festival, at least from what I saw. He mostly danced by himself, and yes, that is a feather duster in his hand. No, I don't know why he danced with a duster. But he seemed to have a great time, and that's [...]
