Say what you want about Southern hip-hop, but one thing is undeniable: it rules the game right now, and it shows no signs of falling off. From the controversial rise of the Geto Boys in the early 90’s, to Lil Wayne’s incessant mixtape output that defined the 2000’s, all the way to Atlanta’s ...

I haven’t seen an album with this messy of a rollout since The Life of Pablo. Announced last year as Say10, the new Marilyn Manson album was slated for release on Valentine’s Day of 2017. The anticipation was killing me, and when Valentine’s Day finally rolled around, the album was nowhere t...

I woke up at 7:45a.m. on Monday, January 11, to the electronic sound of “Rella,” by Odd Future, my alarm tone for the past year. Turning off the alarm, I noticed that I had a text that I recieved at 4 a.m., while I was asleep. My eyesight was still fuzzy, so I didn’t see what it said. I set my ...

For most of my life, I’ve felt a strong hatred towards Marilyn Manson. He seems to embody every pretentious emo kid who has a Myspace and considers himself aware of the evils of capitalism or whatever, because he skimmed through a Wikipedia article about The Communist Manifesto once.
