Ahh, 1988. What a time to be alive...(I assume).
Hey, no matter where you were when Reagan was president, this song is the bomb dot com. Before Friday is over, sneak out those headphones and jam out at your desk. Bonus points if you--mysteriously--find yourself wearing a polka-dot leotard at some point this ... Read More

Call me a fire because I'm gettin' stoked! The BUST 20th Anniversary Extravaganza is going down real soon and we at BUST HQ couldn't be more excited. We've got a heaping helping of amazing performers and guests, plus a booty-shaking dance party afterwards! One artist that I'm especially pumped to see is Awkwafina, the hilarious and talented Queens-based rapper. Also known as Nora Lum, Awkwafina's "My Vag" was a BUST fave from the get-go. She spits super LOL-worthy ... Read More

It's been a long road for the hip-hop dance queen, but M.I.A.'s finally blessed us with this badass track off her upcoming album Matangi. "Bring the Noize" is a version of a song from a mix she put together for the Kenzo fashion show in Paris earlier this year. This electronica track features M.I.A's signature speedy flow over complex, catchy beats, building into a softly sung finale. We can't sit still waiting for the music video, but the seizure-inducing ... Read More

In what parallel universe does a woman publicly apologize to a man who threatens to beat her up and make her “suck skin off" his dick?
Our universe, apparently. And as an added bonus, this woman is Katy Perry, idol to millions of teenage girls.
After Perry tweeted “Just heard a new song on the radio called "I hate being sober" I now have serious doubt for the world,” the song's artist, Chief Keef (real name Keith Cozart) decided to respond. The rapper ... Read More

I first saw Mykki Blanco perform in a grimy warehouse in Providence, Rhode Island. I was bone-tired after a week of grueling exams, and the only reason I was at the concert at all was because my friend dragged me to the performance, claiming I just had to see this. The venue was cramped, hot, and sweaty, and I almost felt myself regretting the decision until Mykki entered the room like a crescendo. She turned us all from exhausted students into her enthusiastic, ... Read More

Two of the baddest divas in the game have collab'd again on "I'm Out," the new party anthem for the ladies. Cici starts it off strong with the club-ready chorus, "Ladies, it's your song, so as soon as this come on/ You should get out on the floor, go and get your sexy on." Of course, everyone's favorite Harajuku Barbie keeps it tough, spittin' fire in her verses. (My personal favorite parts of Minaj's faster-than-the-speed-of-light flow? "I do it big/ I hit 'em ...

Gangsta Boo, or Lady Boo if you prefer, has been one of the baddest ladies in the rap game since 1991. As the first female member of Southern rap group, Three 6 Mafia, she spits clever rhymes with a super ill flow. Her newest mixtape, It's Game Involved, proves that there's no question Boo's still got it. I recommend "Bad Times (Featuring Big K.R.I.T & K-So)," but that's probably just my everlasting attraction to depressing music. If you're not in the mood for ... Read More

Queen diva Big Freedia has done it again. “Feelin’ Yourself” is one catchy-ass hit from the upcoming LP The Idol. The best bounce artist in the biz raps, twerks, and dances in the middle of a boxing ring, all the while managing to not get punched in the face by the two battling ladies. The New Orleans-based rapper commands her audience to “Step into the ring if ya feeling yourself!” and looks damn good while doing so. Turns out a lot ... Read More

Nicole and Natalie Albino are twin sisters who make up the hip-hop duo Nina Sky. The Queens, NY natives have been making dope beats and spitting sick raps since 2004. You might remember their chart-topping reggaeton single “Move Ya Body” from way back when, but they’ve changed things up a bit since then. Their latest album Nicole & Natalie still holds strong to their R&B roots but sounds a bit more like Euro-dance-pop. This past Thursday, ... Read More

Check out this video from my new favorite gangly rapper, D E N A. Somewhere between the sparkly pink sweater, the gold chain, and the way her charming Bulgarian accent pronounces “Cash, Diamond Rings, Swimming Pools,” I think I fell in love.Hailing from Berlin, Europe’s hipster mecca, Denitza Todorova’s music is reminiscent of MIA, and she says she’s inspired by the likes of J Dilla and Sun Ra. In the video, it’s ... Read More
