"While G I R L is too surface-level at times, it hits the target it’s aimed for. Pharrell wants summertime airplay, and any of these songs could survive on the radio. It’s also a nice tribute to feminine vigor, adding another notch to his ever-growing list of achievements. He has plenty to be happy about these days.” — Marcus J. Moore, HipHopDX
This is easily my favorite song right now.
"Layers of Thought" by The Breathing Effect. The opening track of their impressive self-titled EP, out Feb. 11.
This song = ! ! ! ! ! ! !
Too much Hennessy, not enough energy. My review of J. Cole's D.C. show for The Washington Post.
The good people at Songza allowed me to create a definitive playlist of 2013’s best underground hip-hop songs. Three hours of rappity-rap greatness from Denmark Vessey, Quelle Chris, Jonwayne, Homeboy Sandman and many many others.
