Who is FuzeThe MC?

Fuze The MC, born Lance Coleman is currently a Howard University student and musical artist. He has three mixalbums that are currently in rotation, one dropping every year since 2008. Listening to Fuze takes me back to when hiphop was "fresh" and everyone wasn't trying to sell a club banger but was trying to put out great music for their audience.

I'm so feeling the vibe that this music puts off: somewhere lost between A Tribe Called Quest and De La Soul mixed with some Keith Murray. The delivery of the verses are flawless. He is confident in his skill.

The current mixalbum simply titled Stereo Typical Music is anything but typical. "Say Grace" is a beat-clap- beat song and it is bangin'. "Determination" is my joint! If you like "Ambition" by JayZ then you will love "Determination" because "life is just a cycle". Fuze The MC is a very good lyricist as show cased in  "Feels Like" which rounds out my thoughts about the ability of this unsigned blood diamond! All this conflict to have talent this beautiful has to be a blessing. If Fuze The MC is a sample of what the future of hiphop holds then hiphop has been resuscitated.

Fuze The MC will have a fourth mixalbum coming out this fall and I urge anyone with the power to make things happen to jump on the opportunity to sign some young, polished talent. The Fuze has been lit! Who will carry the torch? is a song off of the upcoming album but you didnt get it from me! Leaked song "lullaby"

Growing Old in the Spotlight!

By Tanya Inkintero

The entertainment industry is one that famously (or
notoriously) privileges youth and beauty. This seems to be
especially the case these days, particularly if one looks at the
artists who are dominating today’s pop charts: people like
Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, the Jonas Brothers,
and Tokio Hotel.

Therefore, it is no surprise that many stars have decided to
take measures to look younger. Nicole Kidman, for instance, is
one high-profile actress who appears to have resorted to Botox
or other fillers in order to rejuvenate her appearance. However,
not everyone agrees that she succeeded. Stephanie Zacharek, a
senior film critic at a respected culture magazine has written
that she rather dislikes Kidman’s new look. Other stars have
taken somewhat more drastic surgical measures, as we can
pinpoint with Rupert Everett and his brow lift.

In fact, the pressure to stay young-looking is so strong that
people often say that those who never go the opportunity to grow
old were, in a way, lucky. Entertainers who die young, such as
Marilyn Monroe, James Dean, and Jim Morrison tend to be
romanticized by popular culture. Actually, this is not
necessarily a recent trend, and can be traced further back to
people like silent movie star Rudolf Valentino, or (in the
pre-cinematic era), to Percy Shelley, who, along with Lord
Byron, could be considered one of the rock stars of English
Romanticism. Such people supposedly have the “good” fortune to
be immortalized as forever young and beautiful.

This pressure was memorably skewered in the comedy Death
Becomes Her starring Goldie Hawn, Bruce Willis, and Meryl
Streep. Here, a select few can buy and drink a potion that
rejuvenates them and makes them immortal. Unfortunately, it does
not prevent or repair injuries, so any people who try to take
advantage of the potion risk being stuck forever with bodies
that have fallen apart—a great metaphor for the predicament
faced by people who get heavy plastic surgery done.

Of course, it is hard to say whether society affects celebrity
culture to promote ageism, or the other way around. A cyclical
scenario seems far more plausible.

Still, the emphasis on being and acting young is not all bad.
It does have the very positive effect of promoting health
consciousness. People may put in more effort into good nutrition
and regular exercise, if it keeps them looking younger. Habits
that age a person, such as smoking an excessive tanning, seem
less attractive. In a way, vanity can lead to physical
well-being. The desire to emulate a celebrity one looks up to
can also lead to healthier habits. For example, around the start
of the new millennium, Madonna’s youthful figure helped to spark
a yoga craze.

Still, it is important for us to occasionally take a step back
to evaluate prevailing attitudes about youth and aging. These
attitudes feed into and are fed by our popular entertainment.
Not even the most beautiful celebrities can stay young forever.
When we forget this, we put cruel pressure both on them and

Drakes new album "Thank Me Later"

I'm thoroughly enjoying Drake's new album. I somehow get that "JayZ" feeling listening past the music and to the man behind it. I think that Drake will be around for awhile. And for all those people who questioned if he could live up to the hype of his mixtapes doing well way ahead of his album; I guess they have their answer! Drake's album is phenom.

Ok, some things that I was a little worried about as the album spun off for me to listen to was a certain drawl that seemed to initiate the beginning of a couple of songs "Karaoke","Show Me a Good Time", and "Up All Night". "Over" dropped right on time to break up the strange drawl and give me something to vibe off of while dipping in and out of traffic feeling a spark of energy. "Unforgettable" and "Miss Me" added to the Drake high! "Find Your Love" is already on heavy rotation across the world and my three year old niece is singing this song on a regular basis! Keep up the good work Drake! Oh by the way thanks Canada!

Welcome to Music...My Views

Hello everyone and welcome to Higolz! Everyone should have some Higolz and be striving to reach them. Patience is a virtue that is not easily obtained and kept!

Enough about that I am here to give you my view of the world we call music. I will be focusing on hiphop but I will also be telling you how I feel about RnB,Country,Rock, and whatever else crosses my radar and warrants a response. If you have any music that you want me to RIP meaning (response I present) then send me a copy to Thanks for dropping by and see you around.
