  In an age when teenagers are running amuck, emancipating themselves from their parents left and right, one cool young dude remains loyal to his homestead and isn't afraid to admit he's a mama's boy. Fourteen-year old rapper Brian Bradley, better known as the Astronomical Kid, sends a clear message to ogling men everywhere: "Stop Looking at My Moms" . The insanely catchy single is just as danceable as it is adorable, but don't let Kid's age fool you, he knows ... Read More

Every rap song needs to feature Nicki Minaj. I don’t know if that’s my opinion or the thought seriously on every music executive’s mind the past few months.   Willow Smith’s debut single, “Whip My Hair” is no exception to the Rule of Nicki. It’s hard to resist the catchy (however repetitive) song by Will Smith’s 9-year-old daughter, Willow. Nicki is only icing on the cupcake.  Check it out here. No ... Read More
