About Brandon TNT West

Atlanta Hawks owner Bruce Levenson is no Donald Sterling. Much has been made about an email Mr Levenson sent to his Hawks front office in 2012. In the email Bruce Levenson enquires with his staff, including General Manager Danny Ferry, about how the Hawks can attract a more diverse fan base; in particular, the 35-55 […]

What a week in America. The revolution is definitely televised. And so every movement needs theme music right? G-Unit‘s “Aww Shit” is their response to law enforcement in light of the incidents in Ferguson and in Staten Island. It features verses courtesy of Young Buck and Kidd Kidd. For his part, Fitty is smart to […]

IAMSU is a household name in hip-hop music these days. After a slew of hits with the likes of 50 Cent, Problem, YG, and many more remixes with multiple ‘you know who’s’, SU is still an indie artist. He touches on the indie hustle in a new record called “Independent Paper.” Be sure to catch IAMSU on […]

Young Thug is one of the reason’s The Atl’s hip-hop scene is surviving. One may ask, “what makes him so special?” Well outside of the fact that his style is unique and he’s a fresh face, he’s actually dope. I liken him to the late Ol’ Dirty Bastard in that there’s no father to his […]

The next generation of hip-hop superstars is hard at work early in this 2014 summer. That “New Young Niggas” track by Young Scooter is blazing a path through the ATL right now. It features Rich Homie Quan and Young Thug. Scooter, half of The Migos rap duo, makes his solo foray in preparation for his […]

Usher broke necks a few weeks back when his hot summer track “Good Kisser” hit the airwaves. Of course, the remix has to be a smash for me to even mention it, but adding Jhene Aiko’s sister the beautiful Mila J almost makes “Good Kisser” an entirely new record. I’m never surprised with Usher. He […]

The hottest record of the week hands down is Drake‘s “0-100”. He premiered at this past weekends sold out Hot97 NY Summer Jam. No question is it dope. No question it’s must hear music. “0-100” has already been screwed and chopped by your favorite southern DJ’s. A whose who of up & coming and established rappers […]

The hottest record in hip hop isn’t produced by DJ Mustard. It doesn’t feature K Camp or YG. It features knowledge… Common’s song “Kingdom” is must hear music for the masses. It’s about the state – the real state – of the black community via Chicago stories. It may fall on deaf ears to some […]

Most things that Nicki Minaj does in music is newsworthy. It was no different this week when “Pills and Potions,” her latest single hit the streets. The Dr. Luke produced track sounds different from from her other recent tracks she put out, like “Yasss Bish” and “Chi-Raq.” It definitely has the smell of a hit record. “P & P” […]

D’Usse is the drink of choice now days with hip hop’s elite. Lil Wayne actually did a new record with the same namesake. Lyrically, Weezy talks very minimally in regards to the actual drink. So one has to consider “D’Usse” is an ode to his flow, his life and everything else Tunichi considers exquisite. This […]

Big Up to Dr. Dre for becoming hip-hop’s first Billionaire by slapping his name on some headphones and getting the coolest athletes and celebs to wear them…. Meanwhile in these hip-hop internet streets there’s still hot music going viral. Take this new Young Jeezy “Me Ok” record for example. It’s an ode to how the […]

We got new tunes this week from some of hip-hop music’s strongest! Take this new ish from Maryland’s own Logic called “Alright,” which features Big Sean. It’s shame that a “white rapper” (for the most part) is still seen as a gimmick in rap music… only a few get real MC respect. Due to that […]
