We’ve been blessed again with another gift and that is The Black Panther Album. The album had high anticipation since it was announced that Kendrick Lamar was producing it with Anthony Tiffith. I have to say this album really did meet expectations after listening to it a few times. With the growing momentum around the Black Panther movie, I’m pretty sure there is going to be negative reactions towards this album because of the artists on the album but overall it turned out better than I expected it to. The album has great replay value and introduced me to a few new artists I’ve never heard before. Continue reading →
We’ve made it another year! This year has been one of our best years with all the content we were able to get out and all the adventures we had at every convention we were able to attend thru out the year. Our year was full of fun, hard work and we’re happy to welcome a new year with all of you.
Last week was SummerStage’s last free concert. The Summerstage concert series is sponsored by Capital One Bank. The headliners this year was DNCE with B.o.B as the opening act and Questlove as a special guest, this was a weird combination of artists this year. Last year was Janelle Monae and Fun. who complemented each other because it was the same energy throughout the concert.
My first encounter with Takeia Marie happened randomly while attending New York Comic Con back 2012. A rap cipher gone wrong in the middle of the artist alley show floor. She nice with the pen in more ways than one. She can spit. And even though I embarrassed myself, it made that experience that much more memorable. How many people can honestly say that they met in this type of manner at Comic Book convention. Not many! But we’ve been chopping it up ever sense.
So when I reached out for an interview. This is what she had to say.
We want to wish you all a Happy New Year! We can’t even put into words how much your support means to us and how we have really pushed through the horror of 2016 together. We really want to thank all you from the bottom of our hearts for keeping us going on this vision we have, seeing people take interest in what we do makes us keep fighting to make this dream of our come true.

Long awaited third album from Bruno mars has finally hit stores and Bruno has never let us down and with this album he took it to the next level. I was waiting for an album after Bruno dropped his single “24k Magic” in October, I didn’t expect it to become my favorite album of the year. I’m a huge fan of Bruno’s since R&B is my favorite genre of all time and when I first listened to this album I was so blown away by how creative and fun this album is just a few songs in.
The concert was on September 25th and the whole SDE team went to this concert. Now I’m a big fan of 90s music that’s what they gave us brought back all the good music for about 2 hours. Puff daddy and the family has one of the best lineup of artists. The special guest that pop in on the concert was Shyne and DMX now I have seen fans post videos of the previous concert even my co-worker went to a concert and saw more than just DMX and Shyne. I was expecting a few of the features they had over the years come out but that wasn’t the case. Continue reading →
1) Can Introduce Yourself? And give us the back story on your alias (stage name)?
Cookie: Wassup world , my name is Cookiee Kawaii & I’m from Irvington NJ. My stage name went through some changes throughout the years. I started as Harajuku Cookiee. The Harajuku came from me just loving everything about Japanese culture & fashion. And the Cookiee (with two e’s) was added because I love soft baked cookies lol . its my favorite snack in the world so why not be named after it. As I evolved… I changed from Harajuku Cookiee to Cookiee Kowa. One because I felt there needed to be a change as far as branding for me. The Harajuku brand has been used by many famous artist such as ( Nicki Minaj & Gwen Stefani) so I needed to make a change and pick something more original. Secondly I was briefly on a team (RAW BUNCH) with a notable rapper Tsu Surf. So my name needed to be something that meshed well with his & still stuck true to my love for Japanese culture. So I came up with the name Cookiee Kowa. Kowa … short for cowabunga (in relation to surfing) but I changed the c to a k because kowa in Japanese meant scary or frightening lol … to me since I wasn’t that young artist anymore and I was growing into my own sound .. I wanted people to somewhat be scared of what I could bring to the table. Because I had a lot of people doubting what I could do as an artist. After I left Raw Bunch … I needed to have my own identity … something that was mine and original. Didn’t take me long before I came up with Cookiee Kawaii. Kawaii means cute or adorable in Japanese & that fits my personality.. & it rolls of the tongue for those who can pronounce it right lol & for sure to me its more original & its a name Im proud of.

American born South Korean breed Emcee/ Singer Songwriter Tasha (Yoonmirae) was one of many artist I was first introduced to in my beginning journeys of the K-Music world. After watching her and hearing Black Happiness 검은 행복 for the first time I was instantly hooked. Everything about this particular medium was powerful. It resonated with me in a way that no other song ever has. And I don’t even know the language. My attached in my first encounter was souly off feeling and visuals. Back then, you have to actually search for translated lyrics. After reading those, I got a general of what I already was able to put together. Self love is key. Especially in these times, it speaks more loudly then before. That’s a story for another times. I shared this to say, I walked into this new mv ecstatic. The Feel Ghood Music Camp never fails to delivery. So let’s get into it. Continue reading →
