Drake has always admired UGK — the dynamic southern rap duo made up of Bun B and the late Pimp C. In ‘Up All Night’, the strip-club ready record featured on Thank Me Later, Drake says, ‘Pop that shit for Pimp…’ and in a way, it’s his hat tip to a legend who was gone […]

Okay, no use in really talking too much about ‘Monster’ because by now you all probably want to hear it. So we’ll just go ahead and give our two cents on each appearance real quick, then be out your way. Rick Ross: He needs to master the art of an 8 bar guest spot. Jay-Z: […]

We here at the Global Grind offices listen to a lot of music. So much that it’s sometimes hard to keep track and process it all. A lot of times we only get to listen to a song once. Certain songs, though, we can’t help but repeat over and over – they’re just that good. […]

Here’s a brand new record from everyone’s favorite woman in the world right now. At this point, Nicki Minaj’s career is as big as any person’s can be who hasn’t put out an album.

After being turned down by Haiti’s election committee (CEP), Wyclef Jean has decided to protest by using the platform he knows best: Music. ‘Prison Pou K.E.P.A.’ is sung entirely in Creole, so those who don’t know the language may need a translator, but the singer/rapper’s emotions are pretty clear. Obvious from the cracking in his […]

Here’s a unique take on the modern day music ideo and social media. Kelis’ alternative clip for her ‘4th of July (Fireworks)’ video features Twitter avatars and tweets from followers who wrote out ‘4th Of July’ in their timeline this past July 4. The video then merges these elements together for fly collage-like portraits of […]

Years ago, the music editor at GlobalGrind was a fact-checker at VIBE Magazine. For those who don’t know what a fact checker is, it is someone who has to verify every single fact written in a magazine. Sometimes these facts include the spelling of names. A properly spelled album cover with Swizz Beatz’s name on […]

When 2010 creeps into 2011, and all these websites, magazines, and television shows are looking back on the year that was, trying to compile the best moments of the past 365 days, today better be high on their list. August 24 marks the day Katy Perry’s album, Teenage Dream hits shelves and website for purchase […]

These days, with all the piracy and illegal downloading going on in music, Tuesday has become the day true fans show up for their favorite artists because nothing says support like plunking down the dough to buy an actual album. But even the most die hard fans have one song that gets more plays than […]

Move over Whoopi Goldberg because the sister act Lady Gaga pulled in Tacoma, Washington is one for the ages. On the Pacific Northwest leg of her incredibly successful Monster Ball tour, Lady GaGa dressed at what has to be the most inappropriate nun we have ever seen. The singer’s foray into religion as controversial fodder […]

We here at GG are globetrotters. We enjoy getting out of our New York City confines and traveling around this great country and this great world, but unlike a lot of tourists, when we visit a new city we don’t want to see the sights the United States designates national landmarks. We have our own […]
