It was 42 years ago when President Jimmy Carter declared June Black Music Month. President Carter wanted to recognize the contributions of Black artist by decreeing June as the month to celebrate the achievements of Black artist. This week current President Joe Biden took it one step further by making a proclamation.
President Biden asked public officials, and educators to create programs and activities to observe Black Music Appreciation Month. Hopefully this will mean more programs in schools and festivals to celebrate Black music. It’s a good moment for Black artist because this should lead to more opportunities for artist and ownership in the music business.

Lloyd Banks-The Course of the Inevitable
Former G-Unit member Lloyd Banks dropped new music last night. Banks latest outing “The Course of the Inevitable” is his first project in over 10 years since his last release “Hunger for More 2” released in 2010. If you familiar with Banks prior work then you know he is a wordsmith that can rap for days on.
Banks latest album is 18 tracks of pure bars that should keep your pallet satisfied for quite a while. The standout tracks on the album are laced with features from Freddie Gibbs on “Empathy”, Benny the Butcher on “Formaldehyde”, and “Panic” featuring Sy Ari Da Kid. “The Course of the Inevitable” is a solid comeback laced with head-nodding production, and solid word play.
Roddy Ricch-Late at Night
Grammy nominated Roddy Ricch is back with a new single “Late at Night” produced by DJ Mustard. In a recent interview with Revolt Roddy Ricch expressed his feelings on losing at the 2021 Grammy’s stating, “I ain’t going into it expecting nothing.
