Move over Nicki Minaj, because there’s another Nikki on the scene--Nikki Lynette.  The latter's song, “Shut The F*ck Up Boy,” might have the best chorus ever, and is currently being played on repeat here at the BUST HQ. Lynette’s got serious mc chops, a slight Left Eye vibe, and a dash of afro-punk style. We think she's a pure original, and a must-watch. Check the video out below and then go download her new mixtape, Roses ... Read More

Ah, Christmas in New York: it’s pretty much everything that Home Alone 2 made it out to be (with the exception of like, the entire plot) but better.  The tree at Rockefeller Center, the chestnuts roasting on open-ish fires, John Waters putting the “X” in X-mas at B.B. King's, and Ronnie Spector’s annual Christmas Party. For over 20 years, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and living legend has hosted a New York City Christmas ... Read More

Tea Time With Kusmi

BY Lan Truong in Eat Me |

Tea is my favorite non-alcoholic drink--I'd choose it over hot chocolate or coffee on any cold day. So I was super excited when I first got my hands on a box of Kusmi Tea Essentials. This sampler box comes with 12 (yes, 12!) different teas. The variety can be a bit overwhelming, but in a good way. After all, who doesn't like having choices when it comes to food and drink?My favorite is the Darjeeling N°37, a "subtle tea from India." It's a good tea to ... Read More

The website features hip-hop-centric news and profiles of female rappers, as well as photos, videos, and blogs that the artists themselves update. The musicians on the site produce blends of hip-hop as diverse as they ... Read More
