Such artists include Roy Woods, Troye Sivan, Toro Y Moi, Tory Lanez, and SZA.

Media is constantly raving about Drake's trendsetting skills but not enough about the talents within his own signed artists, such as Roy Woods.

Beauty regimens at a salon or spa can be pretty pricey and let's face it, as college students we cannot afford to go to the salon every week.

Al Sharpton said that he was concerned about the … [Read more...] about Don’t celebrate the imfamous
