Kodie Shane is one of hip-hop's most promising up-and-comers, mainly because she's one of the genre's most unique talents. This eclecticism is evident on Shane's major-label full-length debut, Young HeartThrob. Born in , Shane grew up in a musical family.

When SoundCloud launched in , it was initially populated by DJs who posted hours-long sets, like the much-missed collective East Village Radio. It was the new MySpace, a service where Flying Lotus posted workshop demos, and labels like Warp and Ninja Tune posted advance singles of upcoming albums.

Invest in your love and keep it strong. It's scary to feel like you might never measure up to someone's expectations you love. I feel I have given a lot of myself and in the process have lost myself and my identity. We were planning on doing it on memorial day weekend so we could get married on a sunday between graduation and residency but that is a Jewish holiday. Or, I might be in class. The first vision is something she taught endlessly as a missionary - same with the Book of Mormon translation. But it is the path we have to go through to get to that point that really scares me.
