Janelle MonaeĀ and new affiliateĀ JidennaĀ are making a hard push for the radio with their latest, “Yoga.” Known for her eclectic sounds, Monae has been gradually trying to make her music more accessible, most notably the balance heardĀ on 2013’s The Electric Lady. But this might be going too far. ThisĀ sounds like a dozen other “trap r&b” tracks you might hear on the radio, thus robbing you of Janelle’s uniqueness. Hopefully she’s just testing the water and this isn’t indicative of what we can expect going forward.

Nearly 15 years after the original Petestrumentals, Pete Rock has partnered with Mello Music Group and confirmed June 23 release of the sequel.

The first peek from the project is not a new song. “One, Two, A Few More” harkens back to 20 years ago.

“The first single ‘One, Two, A Few More’ is actually a beat I made in 1995 and just sat on for years for the right moment,” Pete Rock revealed. “Now, I get a chance to release this and more new & unreleased music never heard by my fans with Mello. This instrumental LP will inspire the masses in anything you are doing. Just apply P2 to it and get on the road to success.ā€

Petestrumentals 2 can be pre-ordered in iTunes, CD and vinyl form.

ARCADIA, Florida — 2015 has been consistent with quality matchups. Because of that,Ā there hasn’t a lot of vicious KOs. But those crushing knockoutsĀ are starting to trickle in, and a good one happened down in Florida over the weekend courtesy of super featherweight Toribio Ramirez. One leaping left hook and game over in the third round.
