Tree – Trap Genius

New article up for the Boston Hassle, covering Tree AKA Tremaine Jackson’s album ‘Trap Genius’: “Tackling topics close to home, Johnson’s music is lyrically heavy, switching back and forth between protest and self-indulgence…Johnson’s music is deeply rooted in his community, illuminating others on the outside about gang violence, drug abuse, and the struggle of combatingContinue reading “Tree – Trap Genius”

BAD NEWS FOR SMARTIES (and fans alike)

This just in via the 6 o’clock news, kids are smoking Smarties. Yep, those relics of yesteryear that were once the embodiment of happy childhood memories have been corrupted…And I blame you Candy Cigarettes and Pixy Stix! Oh, and this ——-> bored kid.
