The last project we heard from Sean was his collaboration with Metro Boomin on Double Or Nothing in 2017. The collaboration seemed intriguing; however, the project itself was disappointing. Earlier that same year Sean released his album I Decided. Detroit 2’s rollout began earlier this year, but […]

By Jason ArlineMusic Journalist The history of hip-hop is riddled with moments in which the music was seen as less than tolerable by the media.

Your Intro Guide to K-Pop

By Timia Cobb Music Journalist Korean pop (K-pop) has been around for years but didn’t become mainstream in the U.S. until about two years ago. When most think of k-pop they think about boy crazy fans, music that can’t be understood, and cutesy themes, but it’s more than that.
