Jhene Aiko? Yes, please!

I know what you’re asking – Who/What is Jhene Aiko? I had the exact same question earlier this week when the name came up in my gchat conversation (What up ReRe! Thank you for the introduction!). That moment of confusion/curiosity and the stamp of approval from my sis sent me on a journey. And what I found was great music! Jhene Aiko is definitely the truth. This little-known gem shines bright…brighter than most of the over-exposed costume jewelry flooding the airwaves these days.

 

Here are a few of those gems for you to add to your jewelry box…

 

Jhene Aiko – You vs Them

 

Jhene Aiko ft. HOPE and Kendrick Lamar – Growing Apart Too 

 

Jhene Aiko – Higher

What Can Brown Do For You?

Great question. And when it comes to good music, the answer is pretty simple: Deliver. Whether behind the boards or in the booth, Kev Brown is one of those rare artists that delivers. Although his name may not be buzzing as loud or as often as the Kanye’s or even the K.R.I.T.’s, he has definitely earned his spot in among the greats.

**Sidenote: Do yourself a favor and pick up “The Alexander Green Project” 

Tune in…

Peace in War

I randomly discovered this duo about a month ago and haven’t been able to stop listening to them. This group, The Civil Wars, makes very simple, yet extremely impactful music – both sonically and lyrically. In today’s battle for musical relevance, The Civil Wars are definitely fighting the good fight.

I Want You Back (unexpected, but very appreciated cover of the Jackson 5 classic)
