P.'s Playlist: "Power" - Kanye West (Yes, him!)

The mark of a TRUE artist - one who is invested in the advancement & perpetuation of admirable work within their art form - is one who can create such art in the midst of trials and controversy, particularly their own. I have publicly stated that I do not (and will not) condone Kanye West's behavior, due my beliefs in professionalism & tact. However, this track is simply undeniable. Kudos to producer 'Symbolyc' on co-production.… Continue

P.'s Playlist: "Music" - SteffNasty feat. Jaiden "The Cure" and Gordon Chambers

So a producer, a singer, and a songwriter walk into a bar. Actually the bar is a studio. Anyway, they walk in and they say, "Let's take a Pop/Hip-Hop hit and turn it out, sing our faces off, then let people listen & download for free!"



Well, there's no punch-line, but this is DEF a dope track! Check out "Music," a re-imagining of the instrumental from Drake's "Find Your Love!" I can dig it!!







PS - I will be doing a cover of "Find Your… Continue

Purchase Janelle Monáe's new LP, "The Archandroid," TODAY!

One of my favorite artists in recent years, Janelle Monáe continues to kick musical butt & take fashion names with her eclectic brand of what she has deemed, "Cyber-Soul." It is a strong blend of rock, R&B, soul, and everything in between with a spritz of classical influence to season the sound. Alongside this dope music, the story of Cindy Mayweather, a product of science fiction, fantasy, and political intrigue, weaves itself through the groupings of songs, which Monáe calls 'Suites.'… Continue

Gustavo Dudamel has the fire in his soul & light in his eyes that all those doing music should have. And he is giving back his gift to help others. Pay close attention.

P.s Pix: The Ga is coming for illustrated blood!!

Looks like my girl Stefanie Germanotta (p/k/a Lady Gaga) is at it again...this time in full cartoon technicolor. Bluewater Productions is developing a comic book series based on the life & stylings of the new Avant-Garde Pop Diva. For those who didn't know, I'm CERTAINLY a fan of this woman. She's one of the few Pop music artists of the last 5 years to inspire & make me want to raise the bar with my music. Check out this awesome pic from the upcoming release!…

P's Vids: A 2009 Throwback - In The Studio with HBU & Dy'ari

When you're going through so much music & hard work, it's always fun to look back on the fun times you had doing that work. Seanmichael Rodgers, CEO of HarlemBoy University, and singer/songwriter Dy'ari were at the studio this cold night in early '09, and I decided to break out the camera.… Continue

P.'s Personal Side: I love/hate Wendy Williams

For those who are unsure, Wendy Williams is a 20-year shock-jock radio veteran who has recently crossed over into daytime talk TV. She made her mark by being eccentric & unapologetic about dishing the celebrity dirt, particularly when it came to the sexual interests and conquests of the Urban entertainment community. The infamous gaydar phrase, "How U doin'??" has incited more arguments, death threats, and public condemnation than any Don Imus off-color joke (pun intended). It had been… Continue

P.'s Playlist: Take A Bow - Madonna

Of the vast array of Madonna hits, "Take A Bow" is definitely one of my favorites, along with the video. Written by Babyface as part of her foray into Pop/R&B with the album "Something To Remember," it's a smooth, finely executed record about false love & what happens when we take off our masks and have to face the… Continue

P.'s Vids: Alicia Keys - Unthinkable (I'm Ready)

Alicia keys looks stunning and delivers drama in this time-traveling tale of racial tension, relationships, and romance gone awry. Really enjoyed this one, and it's one of the few cuts off the album that's in my 'most played' sections on iTunes. Check it… Continue
