Audio: Chad Michael - "Run Away"

Matt: Chad Micheal drips start-to-finish with raw emotion and a catchy, singable chorus, separated by two strong, quick verses and a final ballad-like outro that will definitely give you all the feels. One thing you have to respect about Chad is that he has found his sound and he is sticking too it.

15 Videos From Eminem (Marshall Mathers a/k/a Slim Shady)

[Eminem courtesy Wikimedia Commons]Editorial courtesy of Steve 'Flash' Juon: It's the return of the...
Ah, wait, no way, you're kidding
He didn't just say what I think he did, did he?
And Dr. Dre said... nothing you idiots!
Dr. Dre's dead, he's locked in my basement!


I suppose if we're going to keep doing "best of" lists profiling hip-hop artists and groups, a list for Marshall Mathers b/k/a Eminem (Slim Shady) was inevitable -- inevitable but not regrettable. Even though he could have been a flop based on his reputation as a battle rapper and freestyler before signing with Dr. Dre, the force of his personality and humor of his rhymes allowed him to transcend to a rap superstar in a way many other battle rappers failed to do.

Editorial: Young Thug and the Lens of Social Media
Posted by Steve Juon at Tuesday, December 13th, 2016 at 12:00AM :: Email this article :: Print this article

[Young Thug courtesy Wikimedia Commons]Editorial courtesy of Steve 'Flash' Juon: From the outset I want to say that the purpose of today's editorial is not simply to bash Jeffery Lamar Williams b/k/a Young Thug. Plenty of his hip-hop peers have already called him out for disrespecting Alaska Airlines employees in Atlanta after they wouldn't let him on a flight to Seattle last Wednesday. He arrived after the plane had already boarded, expected the "star treatment" a hot young rapper would expect, and when he didn't get it he filmed video of himself sarcastically trying to bribe them with $15,000 cash each. If you haven't seen the video (not that I recommend it) he insults their "nappy as a motherf---r" hair and calls them "Africans that done got deported." It's the kind of thing you'd expect from an alt-right racist, not from a rising star of the rap world.

As I said though this editorial is not about calling him out for his inexcusable attitude - everyone from Mysonne to Pete Rock has already made it clear there's no excuse for him to degrade and disrespect black women that way. Thank you.
