From what I've heard, collaborations between Kanye West and Rihanna are totally genius. Kanye West has recently released his new album, "Life of Pablo," after being solely accessible to the music app TIDAL. Prior to that, the R&B/reggae singer Rihanna released her new album "ANTI." Can this be a coincidence? I think not.

Here are a couple reasons that one should listen to their new albums.

1. Kanye and Rihanna do what they want.

These two artists both are widely known to be celebrities that inevitably do what they want—from making unannounced appearances on stage during awards ceremonies to posting tweets about whatever they please. It can be known that their self-confidence is confused with arrogance. The beautiful thing is that these two artists let it be known that they are themselves. Why not support artists who have been real about themselves in their music from the beginning?

2. One word: creativity

If music is about expression, then Kanye West and Rihanna have what it takes to rule the industry. Their music proves to create a musical movement that fans anticipate and rave for. It takes a lot of work and self development to put out music that no one has heard before. Music incorporates sound, emotion, lyrical genius and passion. All of these aspects are included into their albums that are made to be a certain masterpiece for the world to know.

3. Evolution

When comparing their initial music releases, it is apparent that both Rihanna and Kanye West have grown as artists. Some people say that they love the old Kanye West. I say that if someone's music is consistently having the same sound, then it begins to get boring. Who wants a song that ends up sounding like all the other songs on an album? If I were an artist, I sure would not. Evolution is good. Like Darwin said, may the strongest survive.

Simply put, I really enjoy the latest music that Rihanna and Kanye West have put out. Rihanna has a mixture of R&B with a slight reggae sound on her album. Kanye's album is art. He put so much pride in to it that he made changes to the album after he released it. Who writes a song about themselves in third person? Kanye West. Kanye even featured Rihanna in a song of his called "Famous." Two words: Love it. Anyways, do not take it from me, go check it out for yourself!

An Atlanta Weekend

A New Yorker's quick weekend in Atlanta.


On a weekend visit to Atlanta, I had to adjust to people being personable and congenial to me. Although I had lived in the South before, I had to get reacquainted with southern hospitality due to visiting from Brooklyn. Atlanta Uber drivers are very down to earth, offer snacks, and provide great genuine conversations. The opposite is the lay of the land from Brooklyn Uber drivers. The southern hospitality is provided not only from the Uber drivers, but restaurant servers, cashiers, or random people giving suggestions. Brooklyn is a dope and unique place to live, but short on the warmth more often than not.

20 Traditional Hispanic Recipes To Feast On In Honor Of Hispanic Heritage Month

Like many of my wanderlust-ridden friends and family, I'll travel anywhere for the promise of good food. I once went to Thailand in pursuit of traditional massaman curry and Spain for authentic patatas bravas — neither of which let me down.

What usually ends up being the biggest letdown is coming home to miss the traditional, local cuisine. It may not have quite the same ambiance, but trying to cook authentic dishes at home can increase appreciation for the craft and culture behind them.
