On Repeat

SZA’s new album is the epitome of MINTY right now. TDE’s queen Zee let her power shine bright like the DIOSA she is. This track has literally been on repeat on every speaker system I come across. I’ll definitely be writing about her more in the future.

Los Rakas debuted their new album today along with this powerful video for “Sueño Americano.” I’m honestly still recovering from it, but am so grateful that latinos in hip hop are expressing themselves and shaking mountains along the way. This is inspiration to keep creating, building, and most importantly speaking the truth without fear. You’ll never get lost if you always remember where you came from. #soyraka


Habibis! Tenemos un regalo para ti (we have a gift for you). In honor of mama moon’s eclipse tonight — and all the diosas wildin’ out with this creative energy — we thought it natural to debut our photo series, “Americanah Vibes.” It’s a mixed media project on our experience as Mid East Latina mystics in the urban jungle. It’s a reflection of honoring all the complexities of growing up in Amerika.

Viva las diosas locas. We hope you enjoy. Amate. (www.diosavida.com)

On Repeat

"The World is Ours" - TOKiMONSTA 

These new minty sounds got me feelin’ like the world is mine… er, ours. I’m swimming underwater with rippling sonic waves passing me by, brought together with echoing samples of yesterday’s love. 

"Papa Was (A Junkie) Too" - Betty Ford Boys

There are plenty more gems on this album, “Leaders Of The Brew School.” Bumped this on my bike ride through neighborhood streets on a Monday night while Lauryn’s voice vibrated through my helmet. Ride safe, protect your head, let these beats lead you all the way home & beyond.
