Listen: New Music-Unravel Me-Sabrina Claudio

Sabrina-Claudio-2

Kinfolk! Sabrina Claudio is back with a new song titled Unravel Me. Now I fell in love with Sabrina’s voice on Confidently Lost, but this new song takes it to the next level for me. Her voice is haunting, but at the same time it soothing. The reverberation thing that they do with her voice is f*cking amazing! This girl is going places, especially if she keep releasing music of this caliber. Take a listen below Continue reading

[New Music/Video]I Can Tell You(Night & Day 2.0)-Quincy Featuring Al B. Sure!

download

Kinolk! Why didn’t anyone tell me that Auntie Iyanla had fixed Quincy and Al B. Sure!’s life!?! So apparently someone had the bright idea of re-doing songs from the late 80’s. But I can’t say I am mad at this. If you didn’t already know, Quincy is the son of Al B. Sure! and Kim Porter. The father and son didn’t have the best relationship, and Quincy even penned an infamous letter to his pops that went viral. Well apparently Auntie Iyanla swooped in and helped them “Do the work”(I kid) and now we have a reboot of an R&B classic.

It’s a cute update of remake, and it’s good to see Quincy and his dad on better terms. I guess the world and universe are ready. Check out the video below:

[New Music] Haters-TLC

tlc-haters

Kinfolk! TLC is back with new music, and the answer is a NO for me! The song is titled, Haters, and it’s from their self-titled Kickstarter funded album. I’m not exactly sure who asked for a TLC album, but I guess the demand was there. The song addresses…wait for it…wait for it, Haters! Because apparently Tionne and Rozonda have those in 2017 *yawns* Continue reading

[New Music]High-Ledisi

Ledisi-High

Kinfolk! Ledisi is back with new music and she is feeling GOOD, feeling GREAT, how are you? The song is titled, High, which could be the first song from a new album! I am EXCITED because Ledisi is a SANGA! while some of these girls play around, L, does not! The song is a up-tempo and gives listeners a very postive vibe! Continue reading

[New Music] Deliver Me-Sir The Baptist Featuring Brandy

brandy-sir-the-baptist

Kinfolk!!!!!!!! Brandy Rayana Norwood BETTER GOTDAMN sing!

So…gospel singer/rapper Sir The Baptist(fake Kirk Franklin) has released a new song featuring Brandy. The blawgs are saying they are an item, but I am not convinced! I won’t get into that here, I wouldn’t want to pull a Phaedra Parks and spread untruths about folk. The song is titled Deliver Me, and Brandy is singing her throat out. I was not familiar with Mr. Baptist or any of his music until now. Continue reading

Nicki Minaj Finally Responds To Remy Ma With “No Frauds” Featuring Drake & Lil Wayne


Kinfolk! Nicki Minaj has finally responded to Remy’s scathing diss “Shether” The song is titled “No Frauds” and features Drake and Lil Wayne.

I knew Nicki was going to respond in her own time, but I’m not sure Drake and Lil Wayne were needed. I can’t say I am wowed by her response. She took a few shots at Remy:

“You can’t be Pablo if your work ain’t sellin’ / What the fuck is this b*tch inhalin’? / Tried to drop another one, you was itchin’ to scrap / You exposed your ghostwriter / Now you wish it was scrapped / Heard your pussy on yuck / I guess you needed a Pap.”

She continues,

“What type of bum b*tch shoot a b*tch over a rap? What type of mother leave her one son over a stack? / Lil’ boogie down basic b*tch thinkin’ she back / Back to back, oh you mean, back to wack / Back to back, me and Drizzy laughed at that / They say numbers don’t matter, but when they discussin’ the kings / They turn around and say 

There has been an ongoing debate of whether or not Nicki Minaj should respond. On one hand one could argue that she didn’t have to respond because Remy is not on her level as far as star power is concerned. On the other hand I believe Nicki did right by responding, if for nothing but “The Culture”(Hip Hop). If LL Cool J, who at the time was doing movies, television, and music can battle with Cannabis, then why not Nicki? If Queen Latifah, who at the time was doing movies, television, and music can come down off her throne to battle with Foxy Brown, then why not Nicki? 

Do I think Nicki could have came harder? Yes. Will Nicki’s career be affected? No. What did Remy gain from this? That remains to be seen. The set-up for the diss track was all wrong! Here’s how it should have went down. Remy should have dropped “Shether” and then she should have had the first single from her solo album ready to drop directly after “Shether” went viral. This would have allowed her to capitalize off her viral exposure especially if the single was HOT! There were a lot of missed opportunities where this whole diss was concerned. But hey you live and your learn. Hopefully Remy’s solo album is good because the joint album with Fat Joe was just okay for me. The dilemma for Remy is proving that she can operate without the help of a male counterpart(Fat Joe). We know she can rap, but can she craft an entire album? I am unsure.

Nicki also faces a dilemma as well and that is, can her next album be better than her features. She tends expend all her energy on her features, but when it comes to her album, something gets lost in the sauce. That’s not to say her albums have been terrible, but she hasn’t made her “Thriller” yet. We shall see what happens in the Nicki and Remy saga, but until then check out “No Frauds“.

Remy Ma Releases Second Nicki Minaj Diss Track “Another One”

Kinfolks!

So…apparently Reminisce Mackie-Smith AKA Remy Ma couldn’t wait for Nicki Minaj to respond to her “Shether” diss track, she decided to release another track fittingly titled “Another One” 

Listen HERE

I’d be lying if I said it was good. Sadly it pales in comparison to “Shether”. Papoose this was I’ll advised! Now Nicki can ignore you, and run with the “She’s trying to get some shine off my name”narrative! SMDH! I was afraid she used all her ammunition on this first record, and that seems to be the case.

New Music: Imagination(Acapella)-Elijah Blake


Kinfolk Elijah Blake has dropped new music! If you’re unfamiliar with him, you probably remember him signing the hook on Rick Ross’s song “Presidential” from his “God Forgives, I Don’t” album. If that doesn’t ring a bell take my word for it he is worth listening to.

Blake just posted the song Imagination(Acapella) on his SoundCloud page. On the song he sings about questioning if the love he had for someone was real or was it a figment of his imagination. I like the song and the enjoyed his vocal arrangement. Check it out for yourself below:
