I like to think my music varies. Although my favorite music is R&B (80s-early 2000s) and Hip-Hop, I also love alternative music. I feel like I have a new favorite song every week. There is just so many good music being made that it makes it hard to choose! But here my list is…for the time.

Terrence Spectacle is a hip-hop lyricist set to release his sophomore EP, "One Summer Night" at a release party at Cinderblock on March 31. In his new project, Spectacle relives a year of his life in every song. 


"If I had a grain of sand for every night I spent singing out my lungs, I might be in an oasis in the Sahara, sipping exotic juice out of a coconut with an umbrella bendy straw."
