On June 5, the members of Loy Norrix’s Class of 2014 celebrated their graduation at Wings Stadium, marking the end of the line for their public school education.

Eminem's long career as, lets face it, the only relevant white rapper of his time, has not come without missteps. In this writer's humble opinion, one of these missteps is the recently-released "The Marshall Mathers LP 2," which features endless screaming over 1986-inspired beats. However, for there to be a "2",...

Flashback Friday: The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill

Lauryn Hill's 1998 debut sold eight million copies in the US, but this wasn't enough to keep her in the music industry. Fifteen years later, it is her only studio album.

From here on out, every Friday, we'll take a look back at the deepest, wackiest, and just plain greatest albums released in our birth years (1995-2000). Back in the dark ages of 1997, four years before the iPod, ten years before the iPhone and sixteen years before iOS 7, people listened to their music on non...
