#BandcampGold-1990 by Amerigo Gazaway & Xiomara

#BandcampGold-1990 by Amerigo Gazaway & Xiomara by Dan-O I used to burn cd compilations of 90’s R & B. They were semi-notorious amongst my crew (Army stuff). I called the series “Booty Music” because the 90’s were the first decade where the music said what it meant. As richly political and social as 70’s RContinue reading “#BandcampGold-1990 by Amerigo Gazaway & Xiomara”

The difference in a Jay guest appearance on a Ross, Drake, or JeezyContinue reading “Song of The Year-Movin’ Bass by Rick Ross featuring Jay-Z produced by Timbaland”

Song of the year-Jay-z Blue produced by Timbaland

Song of the year-Jay-z Blue produced by Timbaland by Dan-O Jay-z’s new album Magna Carta Holy Grail is easy to dislike. On it he name-checks Basquiat like most rappers do molly (too darn much), he even brings his sand to the beach because his beach is better.
