Heya, folks! Just want to remind everyone to check out my SoundCloud page for some fresh funk, drum and bass, and hip hop tunes from my music project, OKAY IS BETTER. Don’t forget to ‘LIKE‘ and ‘SHARE‘! Thanks for the support!

This is a track from one of my favourite hip-hop MCs. R A the Rugged Man hails from Suffolk county, Long Island, New York and has been in the game since he was twelve. He has worked with notable artists such as Mobb Deep, Wu-Tang Clan, and Kool G Rap. ‘American Lowlife’ is the title track from R A’s unreleased album of the same name that was recorded in 1999. This is a song that talks the struggle of life on the bottom and as one of those currently making their way through that glorious nightmare hell called “The American Dream”, I can definitely relate.

Hey, folks! I just want to remind everyone that I have a Facebook page as well. Stop on by and give it a ‘LIKE‘! Can you help me reach 100 ‘LIKES‘?



You can call him “Al” but you’ll get a knuckle sandwich backed by mellow African rhythms. Not for nothing but has anyone ever listened to an Edie Brickell record? Waves of violence have been known to happen.

In all seriousness, it’s too bad to hear about this. Simon and Garfunkel were one of my earliest musical influences and I still dig them to this day. Matter of fact, when my dad worked for P.C Richard, he sold a washing machine to Art Garfunkel back in the 80’s. True story. 

Oh well. Charles Bukowski said it best in his poem, ‘Genius of the Crowd‘:

“Those who preach peace are best at war.”



Hey, folks! I have a new song up on my Soundcloud and I’d like to invite everyone to stop on by and check it out here.

New Slayer Song

So…Slayer has a new tune out. I’ve been into Slayer since my teens and I’ve really liked their recent stuff. That being said, I’m sorely disappointed with the new song. It sounds tired and weak, like they’re reaching for their former gusto and just can’t quite make it. With the drama surrounding Dave Lombardo leaving the band and the untimely passing of guitarist Jeff Hanneman, the toll can be heard in the sluggish riffs and strained vocals of the song. Will Slayer be able to recover or is it time for one of the founding bands of the thrash genre to finally bow out gracefully? Listen to the song and decide for yourselves. 

This is the official video for Beats Antique’s song ‘Skeleton Key’. I’ve been listening to them for a little while now. I definitely dig their stuff . It’s a blend of different influences, ranging from Big Band to World music, all backed by their unique brand of electronic grooves. Any other fans out there?
