Jadakiss is gearing up for a 2012 studio album release and he was grateful enough to give his fans a free appetizer. Usually when an artist does this, it comes off like a halfhearted 13 track promo but J-to-the-Muah uses this platform to go in and prove to his fans –old and new– that he is indeed the “Top 5 …

Yan Nascimbene‘s work is serenity at best. Great for a Sunday — or any day for that matter. The French illustrator’s work is lackadaisical but collected. It sacrifices detail in the name of the overall effect; an effect that fosters a comforting moment of reflection.   But Nascimbene’s work is not without its message. He is fully capable of washing off the sugary …
