Concert Review: Listen In

I feel like there’s not too much you could write about Listen In. But let me describe the atmosphere for you, because THAT was something. Being an all ages crowd, it was going to be interesting from the start. The crowd started off pretty small at first. I would say the range seemed to go

Concert Review: Jhene Aiko

Jhene Aiko finally graced our presence in Auckland last night, as part of her T R I P tour. Kicking off the night was local lady of soul, Ladi6. Due to scheduling conflicts I only caught the end of her set, but that was enough for me to grasp the experience I think. There wasn’t

Album Review: Nicki Minaj – Queen

As a big fan of Nicki Minaj I wasn’t excited for this new album.  Prior to the release of Queen, I liked Chun-Li and Rich Sex, but I wasn’t feeling Bed. The tracks she’s featured on have been alright, but I needed Nicki to drop something special. Nicki kicks the album off with Ganja burn, an afro-pop

Album Review: Travis Scott – ASTROWORLD

Travis Scott has soared to prominence over the past few years, never really showing signs of slowing down since the release of his 2015 debut album Rodeo; a project I consider to be a true classic of it’s style. He has had multi-platinum selling hits, a number one album and a kid with Kylie Jenner since then.

CONCERT REVIEW: Majid Jordan

As I arrived to The Powerstation there was a little queue that had formed just as the doors were opening. I noticed a handful of people rush to the barrier, clearly wanting to be at the front. DJ I.E. took the stage to get the crowd amped for Majid Jordan. Sadly if anything, he just

Concert Review: Kendrick Lamar

We’ve had some pretty good shows in New Zealand during 2018, but after what I saw last night – Kendrick pushed everyone else to the side. Joining Kenny as support act was TDE artist SiR. Not going to lie, I didn’t know much about him. I rocked up just before SiR hit the stage and

Concert Review: Miguel

I was lucky to see Miguel open for Bruno Mars a few years ago but I did not know what to expect from a solo headline show. The show sold out rather early and the demand for tickets was so high that there was clearly something I did not know about him. The venue was

Concert Review: Lil Dicky

Last night Lil Dicky put on one hell of a show. I don’t even think you could generalise it. It was like a game show mixed with a comedy show and a gig. He definitely knows how to work who he is. It’s a cold night in Auckland yet there’s a decent crowd already inside

REVIEW: Drake – Scorpion

Drake often boasts about his chart successes and his heartaches, but on his latest album “Scorpion,” the 6 God has delivered a confessional the likes we’ve never heard from him before. The rapper and singer unleashed an explosive 25-track album onto streaming music services on Friday which appeared to confirm that he secretly fathered his

REVIEW: Teyana Taylor – K.T.S.E

With so much hype for Kanye’s album, his joint project with Cudi, Pusha bodying Drake, and the new Nas, it seemed like social media forgot about Teyana Taylor. So did the First Lady of G.O.O.D Music deliver, or can we skip this? K.T.S.E. (Keep That Same Energy) is Teyana Taylor’s second studio album. “No Manners”, describes her
