Brooklyn rapper Logan P. McCoy presents the Dylan Verrechia-directed music video for “Black Morning”, the new single from his EP Strength Of Character. “Black Morning” captures the frustration I felt as a young man in desperate need for personal change but without a clue as to how to bring about this change in my life,” says Logan. “We all go through growing pains and we all have our unique ways of dealing. In my alcohol and weed fueled meditation, I reached the conclusion that death might be the necessary catalyst for the change that I was so desperately seeking.” Logan describes the Strength Of Character EP as “an experiment that became the foundation of a new sound. Initially my idea was to poke fun at ’90s style rock/pop music that MTV had made popular. Being first and foremost an underground MC, I thought it would be funny being that I didn’t play any instruments and knew nothing about making rock music. Having no band or instruments to craft the sound I had in mind, I decided to follow the Hip Hop tradition that I came from of flipping what I had to accomplish my goals.” Strength Of Character is available now on Logan’s Bandcamp page.

Miley Cyrus Addresses Her MTV VMA’s Performance

A week since the 2013 MTV VMA’s, and Miley’s performance still a hot topic of discussion, the singer has finally surfaced to address the “Twerk Gate” controversy. In this brief interview with MTV, she explains that she and Robin Thicke wanted to “make history” and mentioned the likes of Britney and Madonna who’ve also done performances in similar fashion.

I don’t pay attention to the negative because I’ve seen this play out so many times; how many times have we seen this play out in pop music? Madonna’s done it, Britney’s done it. Anyone that performs, that’s what you’re looking for, you’re wanting to make history. Me and Robin, the whole time, said, “you know we’re about to make history right now?” They’re over thinking it. You’re thinking about it more than I thought about it when I did it.

“When I was making the first album there were a group of artists that I listened to, just for inspiration and to absorb the energies,” he said. “It was a lot of Stevie Wonder, and this time it’s a lot of Beach Boys and Beatles and whatnot, so we’ll see how it trickles into the music and the final product. I can’t say much other than that.”
