West took the stage as the featured entertainer for the ceremony, and everything seemed to be going just fine as the crowd of 30,000 watched him perform an extended set of songs.

But then, during the song 'Good Life,' West's mic cut out, and it was all downhill from there.

West stood on stage for about a minute, apparently waiting for the mic problem to get fixed. When i...

Review: Jill Scott Remains True To Herself On ‘Woman’
When Jill Scott comes to mind, one characterizes her as being a cool, calm, and collected modern soul singer with the ability to show off a dynamic, gritty, and funky side. On her fifth studio album Woman, she remains true to those characterizations, never fumbling. Woman arguably hasn’t been the most aggressively promoted album by Scott, but has plenty to offer.

Woman kicks off with a bang with “Wild Cookie,” a spoken word piece in which Scott sends a message warning women not to sleep with any and everybody due to desperation. “Prepared,” the set’s first full length joint proceeds in ...

Musicians continue to make chart history in 2015 despite lackadaisical sales in many cases. Future’s sales were by no mean lackadaisical this time around as DS2 (Dirty Sprite 2) debuted commandingly at #1 on the Billboard 200. No, Future was unable to move the same numbers of contemporaries like Drake, Kendrick Lamar, or Meek Mill, but his 147,000 units is his best career week yet. Even in sales alone, 121,000 copies according to Billboard, he more than doubled his start for his 2014 effort, Honest.

What gives with Future’s come up? That’s a good question! Interestingly, as Future is...
