Art Official- “Big City Bright Lights” & More

Art Official is officially one of my new favorite groups. Considering they’re already big over here in Japan, its no surprise that they’re due for another huge year in the US. Using a style similar to some of my favorite artists who blend Hip-Hop with Jazz, I’m pretty inclined to like them, honestly. Art Official- [...]

The Kid Daytona in FLJ Tokyo

Teriyaki Boyz- Zock On! (ft. Pharrell and Busta Rhymes)

I had no idea Busta did a song with them. Wow. Regardless, this song kinda goes. I’m worried though that their newer single (see “Work That”) is a tad to similar to this song. Whatevs. Check out their album when it comes out next month. There are a couple of bangers on it. Also, Pharrell [...]
