  • Take This Job And Buffett!

     |  Dave DiMartino

    In one of the most unusual weeks of this otherwise dreary summer, the fates have conspired to release an admirable array of actual fine new albums when—let’s be real—most of us have simply given up on music overall and have now moved onto tennis, golf, or staring into the mirror and watching our eyes water! And most of them not only look but sound good! So rather than biting our collective lips and pondering the implications of our simply not caring about the music release...  | More »

  • Meet Jessta James: He Loves Country, Southern Rock…And Hip-Hop Too!

    Mixing different musical genres with country is nothing new at this point -- in fact, some may say it's become a bit of a trend these days -- but it's safe to say not too many country artists found their way to Nashville via a hip-hop route. That's exactly what happened to Jessta James, however. Although you'd probably never guess it by listening to his debut album, Time To Get Right, the Montana native discovered his initial love of songwriting through rapping. The hip-h...  | More »

  • Video: Premiere: Goodie Mob's 'Special Education'

    Finally, kids have a back to school theme song. Cee Lo's pre-Gnarls Barkley group Goodie Mob offers youth an empowering message with their song and video for "Special Education," which premieres exclusively on Yahoo! Music. The song is about embracing individuality, and the video directed by John Colombo devotes a scene to anti bullying. As Big Gipp raps the first verse, a boy is shown standing up to a bully. The student defends himself, lip-syncing to Gipp's lyrics as his classm...  | More »

  • Eminem’s ‘Survival’ Fuels ‘Call Of Duty: Ghosts’ Trailer

    Eminem's new song "Survival" makes a fitting soundtrack for the trailer of the first-person video shooter game, "Call Of Duty: Ghosts." The rock-tinged song plays as the CGI gun-wielding solider blasts his way through a dilapidated city taking aim at everything in his path. "Survival" serves as theme music as the Detroit rapper rhymes about his determination to make it in the hip-hop game. He credits his success to his desire to master his craft. "Wasn't ready to be no millionair...  | More »

  • Worth A Luke!

    Like most music writers, I base my entire personal life on each week’s new record releases! And since—if I may be blunt—nothing especially good was coming out in these first few weeks of August, I decided to skip last week’s blog, drive up to San Francisco to find myself, and then come back this week and cover two weeks at once!
