A couple of days later, it was reported that another prominent muse, perhaps the most famous of them all – Yoko Ono – was to be given a writing credit for Imagine, previously credited to John Lennon alone.

Los Angeles (Girl Underground) – Dripping with feel good indie-pop, Los Angeles-based artist Susy Sun, takes the act of being selfish from a relationship to a larger platform for her “Selfish Love” video, off her self-titled EP.

Noteworthy female rap artists are there, however, ready to spit content better than pretty much any commercialized rapper you would find when flipping through your local radio station. Let’s face it, regardless of the element, the hip hop scene is male-dominated. To stand out from the rest for something other than simply being a Read More
