These Songs Were Made With The Cemetery In Mind

8/28/2015 3:24pm EDT
10 Songs About Death And Burial
Death is an eerie thing – understatement to the nth degree. Still, it’s real-life and as uncomfortable a topic it may be, it must be discussed. In the context of this article, death is approached from the postmortem practice of burial. There are no references to embalming, mummification or cremation. Who in their right mind would write a song about those things anyways? Well maybe somebody, but it doesn’t happen here! Still, these joints have the cemetery in mind.

1) Rick Ross featuring T.I., “Bury Me A G” (Self Made Volume 2, 2012)

On “Bury Me A G,” Rick Ross doesn’t seem to care a...

Music causes folks to experience all sorts of emotions: happiness, sadness, jubilance, anger or otherwise.

10 Darkest Musical Personalities
No matter how warm and fuzzy a song like Pharrell Williams’ “Happy” makes everyone feel on the inside, not all musicians have the same optimism and ‘good vibes’ of the multifaceted musician.

The definition of ‘dark’ is broad, and all 10 of the ‘darkest’ musicians that grace this list possess their own style. What they all have in common is, they are known for their intensely dark musical personalities.

'Maroon 5' Earns Second #1 Album With ‘V’: This Week In Music
Expectedly, rock/pop band Maroon 5 debut atop the Billboard 200 with their fifth studio album, V. Until V arrived, it had been seven years since Maroon 5 first reached the penthouse of the Billboard Album Charts, when It Won’t Be Soon Before Long sold a robust 429,000 copies. V doesn’t open nearly as hot, but does sell a respectable 164,000 copies. Those numbers are in line with other first-week sales in 2014, including Ariana Grande’s My Everything (#1, 169,000) Sam Smith’s In the Lonely Hour (#2, 166,000).

Thankfully, Maroon 5 wouldn’t be the only big name dropping respectable number...

Review: Jeezy Keeps It Real On 'Seen It All'

9/3/2014 12:53pm EDT
Review: Jeezy Keeps It Real On 'Seen It All'
The best way to describe rapper Jeezy is blunt. Jeezy is a ‘no BS’ dude, who calls it like he sees it. This has occurred every album he’s dropped, but may be particularly true of latest effort, Seen It All: The Autobiography. Anytime ‘autobiography’ is involved, the expectation is for the artist to reach deeper than ever into their personal story. While Jeezy comes off overconfident at times, he’s brutally honest, true to his artistry.

“1/4 Block” opens the album in druggy fashion – it’s about hustling cocaine. Besides the “quarter block,” references to cocaine come by way of lyrics ...

George W. Bush
It's been a long eight years for America…longer for some than others (see New Orleans). Luckily, we have some very creative musical artists out there suffering along with us. For them, the first amendment is expressed through their music.

These 30 selections may relate to the War in Iraq, the Katrina debacle, our shaky mantle as "The Greatest Country In The World," our desire to have a President smarter than us (see "nucular"), and the list goes on.

As we all hopefully look forward to our next President, let's take one last look back (and good-bye) at George W. Bush, and some so...
