When did the world become so sensitive? 

Only a few years back when it became acceptable to show thongs on television because MTV, the biggest music network at the time was doing it; after years of refusing to play Uncle Luke and the 2 Live Crew for doing the same sh*t; I thought people had loosened up a little bit and come to terms with the fact that just because nobody knew what anybody else was thinking didn’t mean anybody else wasn’t thinking about it. We all love to see a string running down the crack of a good pair of buttocks every now and again to calm us down, and you know it. Even your girlfriend loves it – it’s awesome, deal with it! 

When I got hired to write for SRL, I was told my writing was edgy and unhinged; and that they loved my honesty – they didn’t even know I was holding back. During the interview, I was asked what the most controversial thing I had ever written was. I told them. Even though it shocked the hell out of everybody and they were absolutely annoyed and disgusted at what I had said, they absolutely loved it. I don’t think I can repeat it to you now, with the current state of the world and how everyone’s acting so self-righteous and dignified, like they don’t eat ass.  Oops!! Did I just really say that? Heck yeah! And I’ll do it again. Okay maybe I’ll tell you at the end of this really long article, I don’t want to scare you off before you read this amazing news story I’m about to present to you.

But why am I thinking back to my SRL job interview after so many years, you may ask? Well, I just logged onto Instagram and saw a picture of Twinky Cent with his arm around the shoulder of a fine gentleman wearing a blazer with nothing underneath and his chest looking really exciting, if I may say so. 50 had a really cute smile on his face, you know the one where you smile on only one side of your mouth like something cheeky is about to happen. The caption read: “Putting something together”. I was disgusted! Yuk! And I know they are probably just working on some new business venture together or whatever these rappers are doing with themselves nowadays that is making them grin so much; but I was very compelled to write a comment that would have been sure to get SRL’s Instagram account blocked for a very long time in these very sensitive times. Can you guess what I would have written? Well of course you can’t, you don’t have a sick and exciting comedic mind like mine. I was compelled to reply: “I hope it’s not a cream pie”. 🤣. I chuckled for minutes before finally having the will power to not hit the send button and piss 50 off one more time. Yep, I’ve done it before, back when I thought social media was a place where you just have fun and get on with your day, without having to go home and cock all your pistols and keep one behind the toilet, in case they try to shoot you while you’re sh*tting (in the words of the late great Notorious BIG). Of course I’m joking 😊… I’d never keep a loaded pistol in the bathroom, that’s so dangerous. 

But where were we? Ah yes, I was about dish out some exciting news about one of the most exciting southern US rappers in the underground hip hop game right now, Drevo Coolidge.

The pandemic had us all locked away like prisoners in our own homes and work places, but amidst all the terrible things that were happening over the past couple of years and are still happening; intelligent minds all over the world were doubling down and using the time away from friends, family, colleagues and annoying people to do amazing things. Having excelled completely independently on Mississippi’s underground music scene for over a decade and amassing a repertoire of music that would be worth tens of millions in the mainstream, there is no doubt that Coolidge is one of those intelligent minds, and after a series of exciting critically acclaimed records that left critics with nothing to critique throughout the pandemic; he has returned again with a record that has all the making of a summer hit. The new song, “Pose to Be in Love” premiered as a music video on YouTube on the 16th of February and is now widely available to stream on Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer and all popular digital music streaming and download platforms. If you can’t wait to hear what all the hype is all about, it’s your lucky day. You can watch the video right here right now by scrolling down to the player below. But you knew that already didn’t you? That’s why you come here. We bring hot new music to your fingertips without the bullsh*t and without telling you to go places to search for it and waste your hard earned mobile data and your precious time like other crappy music sites with all their Google ads and dating site pop ups all over each page, trying to get you to do other stuff and distract you when all you’re trying to do is find some good music.

Oh wait, before I forget. Did you still want to hear about what I said at my interview that got me this job over ten years ago? Believe me when I say, you’re not ready for it. If I tell you this, I guarantee it will hit you so hard that you’ll rant about it on social media for the foreseeable future and try to get me fired so bad that I’ll probably have to go home and cock all my pistols and keep one behind the toilet as well… Oops! I forgot, that’s dangerous right? But since you insist, remember you brought this on yourself. It’s one sentence and I’m not going to explain it or try to justify why that sort of thing would come out of my mouth or into my mind; if I believe it; or if in fact I was just joking. I’ll just say it and end the article abruptly; like Ronald Plump used to do at press conferences when things got heated and just walk the f’ off. Here it goes, don’t judge me okay? And remember, these words are coming out of the depths of an overzealous creative mind that is just as unhinged as it is curious, there is no philosophy involved here. No one is judging anyone here, it's just comedy, okay? So here it goes. Okay wait, wait, wait. Let me first explain what led up me saying this – to cut a long story short, sometime during the interview I was asked if I believed in God and the question pissed me the f’ off after looking around and realizing I was surrounded by a bunch of crucifixes on every wall around me. I’m Catholic so I had nothing against it but the question made me feel like I was being judged so I decided I was going to piss the interviewers off as well before I left so that we were even, you know, to restore the balance in the universe. Anyway, when I was asked what the most outrageous and most controversial thing I had ever written was, I looked around at all the crucifixes and I said: “Do you think Jesus looked like Gabriel?”.

Have a good day…

“Door slam” 

“Footsteps fading into the distance down a long echoey corridor fast”
