CHRIS BROWN Gets Candid About Assaulting RIHANNA – “I Felt Like A Monster” (VIDEO) via @lisafordblog

In this new candid video, promoting CHRIS BROWN’s documentary, “Chris Brown: Welcome To My Life”, Brown gets candid about his turbulent relationship with fellow superstar, RIHANNA. When that infamous highly publicized fight happened between the two after they attended Clive Davis’ Grammy event in February 2009, I remember thinking to myself...relationships between two beautiful rich successful lovers are the ones that are suppose to work out. A lot of people were living vicariously through Rihanna and Chris Brown and was rooting for them. It was one of those deep tragic moments that haunted Chris Brown until this very day.

RAEKWON – “THE WILD” – The Chef’s 7th Solo Album!! (Stream) via @lisafordblog #WUTANG

CONSEQUENCES OF SOUND: "The Wild’s production is absolutely modern, but many of these beats have a dark edge that pairs much better with the angry flow Raekwon has perfected over the past three decades. “This Is What It Comes Too” immediately recalls classic ’90s Raekwon. The New York MC effortlessly drops vivid, hard-hitting lines like, “Stroke my bullets with cyanide/ So when they touch you that’s a case closed.” Raekwon spits an endearing recount of the life of Marvin Gaye on “Marvin”. The song features a big hook from CeeLo Green, who cuts through this boom-bap track like an outstretched hand pulling the cut into 2017. “Marvin” and “I Have Nothing” both come with the boom-bap foundation that should please Raekwon’s longtime fans."

CHILDISH GAMBINO’s Newest Masterpiece “Me and Your Mama” (AUDIO) via @lisafordblog

Childish Gambino's 'Me and Your Mama' appears on new album 'Awaken, My Love!' due next month. Rolling Stone writes, "The six-minute, three-part song begins quietly and builds to a soulful, grooving affair with a female gospel-tipped chorus, before it ratchets up into a stomping blues-funk second passage where Gambino's passionate vocals kick in. "Do what you want/ I'm telling you/ Let me into your heart/ Can't stand it, backhanded/ They want to see us falling apart/ You know that I love you/ So let me into your heart," he sings, eschewing rap in favor of a raw, intense approach. Following the cacophonous midpoint, the song culminates with winding instrumentals, ushering in a cathartic ending to the sprawling composition."
