Music Monday: “Wine & Cigs” – Chase Stebbins

Image may contain: one or more people, shoes and outdoor

If you’ve followed my Music Monday posts at all there is a good chance that you’ve seen Chase Stebbins featured here a few times. He was a local Boston rapper who is now living in Los Angeles trying to follow his dreams.

In my opinion this is probably his best song, it shows his true growth as an artist, trying out a different sound, and making it work. This video is dope too, I just had to throw that out there.

Luckily I was able to ask Chase a few songs about his new sound, his big move to LA, and his biggest influences.

1) What inspired this song?
The song was about a conversation i had with my mother about moving to LA and following my dream

2) This is a new sound from you, are you planning on continuing down this route or just continue to try out different sounds?
I do want to continue down this route when it comes to my sound. I am comfortable on every record now. I know who I am with my music now and because of that I can start growing

3) You’re a Massachusetts native who ventured out to Los Angeles to follow his dreams. What was the hardest part of moving across country?
The hardest part was giving up all the connections and relationships back home. It’s a complete fresh start which is scary for some, but I learned to love the challenge.

4) Can we expect a full album or mixtape any time soon?
I have a few things in the works, but don’t hold your breathe for a full on album just yet

 5) What artists inspire you the most when it comes to your own music?
I’m currently taking a lot of inspiration from Mac Miller and Chance The Rapper. I love to watch them perform because they just let the music and beat pull them and make it look so natural.

Chase is definitely making waves on his own though on the West Coast. He has already performed at a ton of different venues, and is headlining his first show tomorrow May 16th at The Study Hollywood.

All that I can say is Chase has come a long way from rapping Eminem at karaoke to putting together incredible songs with deep lyrics.

His time is coming, I can feel it.

Be sure to check out his SoundCloud , Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook for updates!

Mack Wilds Drops New LP “AfterHours”

Mack Wilds is coming in hot with this new project that he has put together. It is absolutely incredible if you ask me.

In case Mack looks familiar it’s because he was on the ‘90210’ reboot a few years back, and he was also in Adele’s “Hello” music video.

There is so much more to him than that though. On this latest LP he proves that he can sing perfect melodies, but he can also rap. This artist is so versatile it’s only a matter of time until he takes over airwaves everywhere.

He also has features from Wale, Cam Wallace, and Tink on the project.

So listen to it below and be prepared to become obsessed with it!

Jay Z Becomes First Rapper Inducted Into Songwriters Hall of Fame


That’s right, Jay Z is going to be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame. This has been seven years in the making. He was nominated all the way back in 2010 but it was just confirmed that he will in fact be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.

“Since 1996, 21-time Grammy award winner, Shawn ‘JAY Z’ Carter has dominated an evolution in popular culture. With more than 100 million records sold he is one of the best-selling musicians of all time,” the Songwriters Hall Of Fame site said about the induction of Jay Z.

I have to give HOV credit, that’s pretty awesome. I hope that Nas is the next rapper inducted because his music is out of this world incredible.

Man Crush Monday : J. Cole

J. Cole released a surprise album this past week and it is clear that he is one of the best to ever hold a mic. Let’s be real about that. His music is so deep and has such meaningful lyrics, it is almost like spoken word rather than hip hop, just my opinion.

That is something that makes this man so attractive. He is smart, smart with his words and with his beats. He is the kind of writer that can bring a man to tears (so I’ve been told), and also make a woman feel appreciated.

It’s pretty obvious that J. Cole’s newest album 4 Your Eyez Only is his most popular one yet, well it has gotten the most press. Everyone knows he went platinum with no features on his last album. For good reason too, he even dedicates a song to his wife and daughter, well possibly his daughter. Nothing has been confirmed yet, but if you listen to his album you’ll understand why there is speculation.

So J. Cole has it all, he has brains, beauty, and is taller than most celebrities out there, which is something I can appreciate.

Happy Monday!

Drake Releases Second Diss ‘Back To Back’ Directed At Meek Mill

Well this beef isn’t going anywhere, that is something that I am sure of. Drake absolutely killed it and bodied Meek Mill. I feel like someone should call and see if Meek Mill is okay. If you didn’t know Meek called Drake out for not writing his own raps and going on and on about fake Drake is. I didn’t even know who Meek Mill was to be honest. I knew he was dating Nicki Minaj but that was literally all I knew about him. Apparently he is a kind of well known rapper though?

I like Drake, I always have and I don’t know if he writes his own raps but I genuinely don’t care because his music is good. This song slays though, I like to think that Drake just sat there and was like ‘I am going to ruin Meek Mill’ so he released that song.

Nicki Minaj who are you going to be loyal to? That is the biggest question I have!

Is that a world tour or your girl’s tour
I know that you gotta be a thug for her
This ain’t what she meant when she told you to open up more
Yeah, trigger fingers turn to twitter fingers
You getting bodied by a singing nigga
I’m not the type of nigga that’ll type to niggas
Shout out to all my boss bitches wife-in niggas
Make sure you hit him with the prenup

Boom Meek Mill is dead.

Man Crush Monday: Big Sean

B-b-b-big Sean boy how big is your?

Big Sean may only be 5’8 but I am into it. I will say that Big Sean is currently one of the biggest names in rap. I think I am right in saying this? I don’t really listen to much new rap but I like Big Sean a lot. I think that he is very smart with his lyrics and I like how he can switch up his flow.

I really do believe that Big Sean will be around for a long time. He just needs to learn to stop dating famous women. Well maybe he could keep doing that, but he needs to stop being so public? I don’t know. I just know that he and Naya crashed and burned, and then he and Ariana Grande did the same thing.

Focus on your music you handsome son of a bitch and good things will come!

Just for your information Big Sean, I am not famous, so you should date me.

Happy Monday!

Man Crush Monday: Drake

I feel as though for years I have had an inner struggle on whether or not I find Drake attractive. When he first came out on ‘Degrassi’ I was not a fan, when he first started to rap, again I was not a fan then recently I watched The ESPY Awards and now, I am a fan. Drake is attractive and I am sorry it took me so long to admit that!

Drake is known for his smooth singing and smooth raps that are just absolutely out of this world. People can say whatever they would like about Drake, how he raps about break ups and love or whatever but it is absolutely amazing. He can actually take real life stuff and rap about it. Now don’t me wrong like most people I loved the song “YOLO” but when he puts together a song like “Take Care”, makes me weak in the knees!

I think that everyone can agree that Drake isn’t going anywhere any time soon. He will be making music for as long as he can and he has some longevity. Do I think that in ten years Two Chainz will be making music? Lord I hope not!

So Drake, thank you for that big ass smile, those gorgeous eyes, and your incredible voice. If you didnt catch it, Drake was always hilarious as an ESPY host which is what really made him my man crush Monday this week!

Missy Elliot Surprises Everyone With BET Awards Performance

ImageHey, hey, hey, I’m what’s happening. If you don’t know that is a Missy Elliot lyrics, I am so excited to write this blog right now, I am going to try and hold it in. I can’t let you guys know how huge of a fan I actually am of hers. Wait, yes I can. Ever since I heard her rap back in ‘One Minute Man’ I knew that I was a big fan of her. Now she is making a come back?

If you missed it, last night Pharrell was singing one of his songs that sounds like every other song he sings and Missy came out and killed it. She just did a little verse from her own song and the crowd went absolutely insane. How could they not? Living legend right in front of them, can’t get better than that.

Now in my opinion Missy Elliot is one of the best female rappers of all time. Who else is up there with her you ask? Eve, Lil Kim, and Queen Latifah. Oh and Left Eye, she wasn’t on her own but home girl could rap.

I wonder if Iggy Azeala one of the most over rated artists of the moment was taking notes when Missy came out or shivering in her books. Nicki Minaj, well she kind of has already fallen off so no worries for her.

Anyway, Missy you need a comeback, and you need it right now. I need it right now. We all need it right now!
