On August 23, Andy Mineo released a musical-podcast hybrid called Work in Progress. The project is unlike any released by the artist before, compiling several unreleased tracks into a single release with a podcast series used to create additional conversation. Whereas Mineo’s earlier releases accounted for a single season, Work in Progress gives listeners a more complete display of Mineo’s artistic evolution. Whether it be the fear of aging, a celebration of marriage, or musical experimentation, the album is a thematic feast and might be Mineo’s most powerful project yet. Perhaps the most crucial element of Work in Progress is […]
NF recently sat down for a conversation with Ill Will at NME.com this week. Being someone who tends to be pretty vulnerable on the mic, NF found some space here in front of a camera to be real. Considering himself to be a quite negative person and preparing for the worst, NF says he finds it thrilling that he outsold Chance The Rapper’s debut album ‘The Big Day’ in the first week of sales with his new album The Search. Nate also shares how his perception changes the older he gets. He looks back on the song How Could You Leave Us […]

Kanye West continues his “conversion tour” of sorts with a stop at mega-church Lakewood, Pastored by Joel Osteen. Pastor Osteen is easily one of the most recognizable faces when it comes to representing Evangelical Christians. It only made sense that Kanye brought his Sunday Service worship experience there. Prior to the evening service, Osteen brought Ye out to do a Q & A in front of the church. It was here that West commanded the room with his testimony, warnings of celebrity, and passion for Jesus Christ. The pastor even admitted that West packed more into 60 seconds then he […]
To Eshon Burgundy, hip-hop is not just music. Hip-hop to him is his ministry and he’s all in on following God’s call. The emcee explained his outlook on Christian rap to Ruslan on camera, and how something Chance the Rapper said, led to a call out and a conversation. Burgundy took issue to Chance saying he’s a “Christian rapper” and “represents God” and in the next line of a song “solicits her for sex.” After calling him out on that line, Chance followed Eshon and then saw that as an opportunity to DM him. Chance told Burgundy that he misunderstood […]
