Dedicated to the “Iron Lung”…


We’re not only stoked on Kendrick Lamar’s performance of “I” on last week’s SNL because the Compton rapper’s new music is on point, but we’re also psyching on how he paid homage to Method Man on stage with the misshaped braids and black contacts. It’s the detailed-oriented odes to hip hop that separate Kendrick from his peers that have him hailed as the best young rapper in the game right now. Respect.

Love Sam Smith’s acoustic version of “Latch” more than the Disclosure dance mix. This love jam has wedding video song written all over it.

Our classmate and culinary artist of Ka‘ana Kitchen Andaz Maui, Isaac Bancaco,posted on Instagram that Chronixx was his favorite reggae artist right now and was going to be on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. So we had to check it out last night and this Rasta Youth is LEGIT. Now onto the next question: When is Chronixx coming to Hawai‘i?
