Stay Fresh | Spring For These Seven: Accessories

Spring is here. Finally. There’s something about the change in the weather that makes most people hit the nearest boutique and drop ends. That’s alright. You can blame it on the fact that all of us here in the States have had an everlasting winter and shiny new stuff makes up for it. Plus, who doesn’t need pretty new things when the trees get to blooming? With that said, MFD kicks off this Spring For These Seven series. The first? Accessories.  Continue reading

Nubia Emmon Has Us Hooked...

Nubia Emmon Has Us Hooked…

The good people at The Bar Exam aren’t just listening for one specific type of artist.

Fresh Music | MFD’s Top Three Picks: Berkeley Park ‘Route 116’

Route 116 Before Success

Route 116 Before Success

A couple months ago, Jack Papers f/k/a Lilo Brown had me come in to Icon Studios for an introductory listening session. The young emcee is also an uber-talented engineer and producer — all dope skills when you’re an artist out here these days, trying to be self-sufficient. We all know the labels barely touch you otherwise.   Continue reading

RedCoat Serves Truth.

RedCoat Serves Truth.

Artists, here’s the lick, I’ma lay it out for you: the live set is the move. You already knew that, right? Nah. You gotta smash the set though.
