Big Boi – Mother Of Dragons

Yesterday HBO announced Catch The Throne, a hip-hop mixtape inspired by Game Of Thrones featuring music from Common, Big Boi, Wale and Daddy Yankee. What better way is there to psych yourself up for GoT’s fourth season premiere on April 6th?

If this is the first you’ve heard of neo-soul’s most electric lady, Janelle Monae, then sit back and listen closely. Her retro-inspired vocals are infectious and you can tell she’s done her homework as a soul singer. Even beyond her music, her resume is a force to be reckoned with in today’s “accidentally famous” one-hit wonders. At the age of only 17, she founded the Wondaland Arts Society in Atlanta, Georgia, a collective of young artists and performers featuring Nate Wonder of the duo Deep Cotton, punk poet Chuck Lightning, Isis Valentino, ...
