Mariah the Scientist | “Unfold Skinny”

When we final caught up with Mariah Buckles, aka Mariah the Scientist, she was unsuccessfully making an attempt to dodge cupid’s arrows throughout a barren winter panorama. Over a yr later, the 25-year-old R&B-er (which, after all, stands for analysis & biology) is again with this newest ode to heartache from her newest work, a four-track EP referred to as Buckles Laboratories Presents: The Intermission, which was launched again in March. 

The former pre-med student-turned-singer makes use of this tune to dissect the bounds of affection and lies. Her speculation? Deceit is extremely flammable.

Bone Crusher | “By no means Scared” (that includes Killer Mike & T.I.)

When Wayne Hardnett Jr., aka Bone Crusher, burst onto the scene in 2003 along with his go-for-broke supply on this absolute banger, it was straightforward to imagine that he’d stay in the identical orbit as his fellow artists on Jermaine Dupri’s So So Def label. This tune, from Hardnett’s debut album, AttenCHUN!, was so standard that the Atlanta Braves used it as a theme for his or her 2003 season. So, certainly, he’d go on to crush the charts identical to he stomped down Atlanta, Godzilla-style, on this irrepressibly energetic video?

However, lo, right here we’re, virtually 20 years therefore, and the man who bragged about his impenetrability to concern has pale like a ghost from the hip-hop scene. Nonetheless, the story does appear to have a contented ending. The Adamsville native, now in his 50s, has evidently been spending his center years having fun with high quality household time along with his spouse of just about three a long time, Aneesah, and their 5 children. Aw, extra like coronary heart crusher. Right here’s a name again to “By no means Scared,” our Classic Monitor of the Week.
