My name's Jake Bourey, and I've dedicated a significant portion of my life to music and deciphering the science behind its beauty. As you can guess from my blog's title, I'm especially passionate about hip-hop. I post and review the best songs hip-hop has to offer, old and new. Most are in the “underground” genre, considering that’s where the vast majority of hip-hop's true art resides these days.
The overall goal of this blog is to educate the general public by exposing them to outstanding hip-hop songs and artists that they might have otherwise never known about. Many people don't realize the hip-hop universe is filled with countless beautiful gems that sadly remain completely hidden deep underground, buried by the overwhelmingly fake, watered down, and soulless music of the mainstream radio and music industry. “There's a war going on outside no man is safe from”, so do your part and help real hip-hop fight back against this overly popularized wackness and sellout mentality. Long Live True Audio Art! I also make mashups and other stuff.
Kanye West embarked on one of his more epic Twitter rants just an hour ago, going off on Jimmy Kimmel for a sketch in which the late-night host reenacted a recent BBC Radio 1 interview with West, replacing Kanye with an obnoxious kid.
