It's true. "Girls Love Beyonce." But that doesn't mean we can't love Rihanna either.

X/Coke was by far one of the best projects of 2012, and thankfully for us the sounds of Cheri Coke and MeLo-X will have new life as their remix EP is set to drop this month. Listen below as remix magician and producer Sango put his spin on "The Interlude."

Yuna's self-titled U.S. debut is one of my best purchases of the year. I love EVERY track on the album, especially the Pharrell produced "Live Your Life." The homie MeLo-X puts his Schwaza on Yuna's hit single for a "Motherland God" remix that should find its way into your iTunes.

Leaders of the Romantic Movement, Jesse Boykins III and MeLo-X have teamed up to release their first full length collaboration, Zulu Guru. If the lead single "Black Orpheus" is any indication of how the rest of the project will sound, I suggest you keep your eyes and ears locked for Zulu Guru's release on October 15th.

I've said before that whatever MeLo-X touches turns to gold, and he proves his versatility as an artist, producer, DJ with each track that he creates, covers, or remixes. To showcase some of his latest work and to premiere new exclusives, he and Steve-ography present, Inside The Mind Of MeLo 2.

Whatever MeLo-X touches turns to gold and his remix of Frank Ocean's "White" is surely no exception. This time, the producer also lends his voice to the track as he spits a nice verse that perfectly captures the message of the song.

So glad I woke up listening to Fresh Daily's The Brooklyn Good Guy this morning because this is some good ish. The free album, presented by Footaction and Converse, features Fresh rhyming over top notch production that provides an original sonic environment that places him on a completely different playing field from your average rapper. Happy to see that two of my favorite St. Louis rappers, Black Spade and Rockwell Knuckles, made their mark on the album as well!

Erykah Badu's latest album New Amerykah 2 is an extremely underrated project that I think is way ahead of its time. Thankfully, MeLo-X appreciates the album, and he's remixed four of the most popular tracks from New Amerykah 2 and given the songs new life by adding his special touch.
I've listened to this three times through already. I needs more!
