[NPR.com] The music of Nick Hakim occupies a space and time that is faintly out of this world. The guitars and machinery that make up his music feel slightly askew, as though someone slowed down the tape machine every once in a while. His raspy voice feels drenched in a cavernous space. In fact, the first time I met Nick Hakim, he was literally draped in fiber optics, as if stars were surrounding him. That was in Austin at SXSW's Optic Obscura installation.
Hakim recently released his first full length album — “Green Twins.” Recalling the warmth of early ‘70s R&B, Hakim takes after Gaye with his lyrics, exploring more introverted themes. After battling depression, Hakim says he’s learned to see music as a means toward healing and personal discovery.
"I used to beat myself up in my head because I thought that that's what I needed to do. I think there's this whole aspect of needing to be an artist that's always in pain to create."

A pregnant Cardi B will perform with partner Offset. It was Cardi B—the first woman rapper to land a No. 1 hit on Billboard's 100 since Lauryn Hill. Cardi B’s fiancé and occasional collaborator, Offset, will join her in Texas as one-third of Atlanta trap trio Migos, whose Culture II hit Billboard's 200 album chart’s No. 1 spot in February.
The "HOT TOPIC" talk about Cardi B is her facincaiton with FDR, yeah that FDR - Franklin Delano Roosevelt, "He helped us get over the Depression, all while he was in a wheelchair. Like, this man was suffering from polio at the time of his presidency, and yet all he was worried about was trying to make America great — make America great again for real," she told GQ of the United States' 32nd president, who was partially paralyzed.
