VERZUZ: Redman vs. Method Man

[ArtByShake] Following the grown folks business that was The Isley Brothers and Earth, Wind & Fire, VERZUZ celebrated 4/20 with a special edition starring rap’s OG Cheech & Chong, Method Man and Redman.

Jhené Aiko – “Tryna Smoke”

Jhené Aiko invites her fans to a session, in the form of her “Tryna Smoke” video. Similar to ScHoolboy’s “Dope Dealer” video in 2016, the visual is mostly from the viewpoint…

One of the DoepHouse’s favorite projects of this relatively early 2021 is the debut album of Joyce Wrice, Overgrown (with the Lucky Daye duet, “Falling In Love,” being this writer’s favorite track).

Snoop Dogg Drops ‘From Tha Streets 2 Tha Suites’ Album

It’s… you know what fay it is. We’ve been doing this dance for what’s felt like eons now: artists using April 20th as a means to release new (and, usually, weed-addled) content. It’s beyond music now, too; I’ve seen emails about NFTs and virtual smoke sessions in my inbox for days now. So, rather than extol these projects, I’m just…

Jorja Smith – “Gone” | 2DOPEBOYZ

Her first project since her 2019 debut album Lost & Found, Jorja Smith will release Be Right Back on May 14th. “It’s called be right back because it’s just something I want my fans to have right now, this isn’t an album and these songs wouldn’t have made it,” Jorja says about the project. “If I needed to make these…
