NEW MUSIC FRIDAYS

ARIANA GRANDE – POSITIONS

As Ariana is growing with her music, I can’t help but to love her more and more. Such a talent and stays with the dopest features and nice vibes throughout the whole album.

BUSTA RHYMES – EXTINCTION LEVEL EVENT 2: THE WRATH OF GOD

Not only am I super excited for Busta Rhymes to drop part 2 from 1998’s Extinction Level Event 1! Then listening to the album has me in total awe. First, shoutout to Busta Rhymes for copying 21 Savages style with including Chris Rock on his album. Wait, dope ass features with BBD, M.O.P., Rick Ross and even Minister Farrakhan speaks, and others. Overall this is a dope project. Yes it doesn’t compare to the first Extinction Level Event, but the 2nd half of the album does get LIT! Busta is an artist who is not going anywhere nor getting rid of his lyrical flows.

SAM SMITH – LOVE GOES

What I enjoy about Sam Smith’s music is that you can feel it in your soul, and is very relatable. This album feels like the soundtrack to just about everybody’s life and experiences in this crazy year of 2020. Of course Sam made sure to include some dance tracks while belting out heart felt lyrics provides the recipe to a great album.

WIZKID – MADE IN LAGOS

It’s been 3 years since WizKid has dropped his own album. Now we did get some great music from him a couple months ago when Beyonce re-released the Lion King soundtrack, but it just wasn’t all WizKid tho! Just like his last album be prepared to groove with the tight riddims on this project. Even the intro had me ready to slow wine imagining I am on an island somewhere! Great project overall…I always expect the best work from WizKid.

KING VON – WELCOME TO O’BLOCK

One thing I love about King Von is he is a story teller. He will have you thinking you are there in Chicago! On this project expect to hear from mainly Chicago artists which is very dope, always represent for your hometown especially when the love is being returned back! This project is definitely a step up from his previous work, and overall I like it.

TRIPPIE REDD – PEGASUS

I do not know what people was complaining about? I like this album. Trippie does come off with a more calmer and quieter sound than on his previous work, but the sound works for him. I think he has mastered his cadence in music for no matter how he changes it up, it still comes together and sounds great! Of course he has all the dope features including Cleveland’s own, Doe Boy, who has a project coming out November 6th. If you are a true fan of Trippie Redd you will definitely enjoy this album as well.

COMMON – A BEAUTIFUL REVOLUTION

Common always thinks outside of the box and stay dropping music that makes you think and vibe for the production is always dope! Honestly can’t find nothing negative about music that is supposed to uplift you especially during these crazy times.

MADEINTYO – NEVER FORGOTTEN

I look at MadeinTYO like a new version of TY Dolla $ign. They’re both dope with the productions and can make decent albums for themselves! Now I was shocked to see that the producer had came out with an album. Now I am so happy! LOL Forreal this album totally is a banger. Each track will have you boppin your head, plus with features from a mixture of people like J Balvin to Cam’ron to even Wiz Khalifa.

LIL KEED – TRAPPED ON CLEVELAND 3 DELUXE

I am not going to say too much about this deluxe version for I spoke highly on the regular album when it came out. Since 2020 is the year for all these deluxe albums Lil Keed said shit why not? LOL The new songs that he has added on the deluxe add to the already flavored album. Basically saying Lil Keed is LIT.

JIMMY VALENTIME & URBAN MIRACLE – DANGEROUS TO GO ALONE

You can tell that Jimmy is straight into old school hip hop which nothing is wrong with that for I do like how he blends it with the current style of hip hop now. The first 3 tracks had me wondering what was I getting into, but then the song “Porch Lights” comes on and I found myself vibing to it hard. Next thing I know the rest of the album was dope! This is one of the reasons why I love to listen to albums, for 1 single truly does not give an artist any justice.

JALEN FRAZIER – EXPRESSIONS OF THE NEGLECTED

The Midwest knows how to come thru with some good music and dope lyrics. That’s what Jalen did with this project. I feel like this is the best ending to a TGIF! I am glad this artist reached out to me, and that I actually took the time to check him out. After your first listen I bet that you will not be disappointed at all.

NEW MUSIC FRIDAYS

Hey guys! Im back with my introspective on some of the new music releases that has come out recently!! I hope all is well with everyone especially since summer is officially over, and if you are like me, you will be so glad see it back again next year! But, in the mean time check out some dope music to vibe to in the process.

COMMON – LET LOVE

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

One of the most sexiest males in rap history who is better known as Common dropped an album that truly had me see a different side to him. Like I felt as if I was seeing right thru him! I seen an interview that he did explaining that he his goal was to be totally transparent with this album. He mentioned that he has been seeing a therapist to help deal with his own past/current issues, and this album gave him the voice to truly put his vulnerability out there! Ladies, it’s not often that a man will be transparent with his thoughts,and since Common is such a talent when it comes to his lyrics, listening to this album will allow you to see this artist for face value. Dope album!

SIR – CHASING SUMMER

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

The label TDE is know for having talented artists like Kendrick Lamar, SZA, and Schoolboy Q just to name a few, and singer, SIR, is another one you can add to the list! I swear he reminds me of some of the late 90’s r&b artists who not only could sang, but also told familiar stories of relationships, love and heartbreak. What sets SIR out to be different is his delivery…make sure to pay attention to what he is singing about I bet you will love this album, and it will be on repeat!

LIL TECCA – WE LOVE YOU TECCA

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

Can you imagine being a regular teenager from New York than BOOM you drop a project that people like Dj Akademiks are speaking nothing but positive words towards it?? Well…I will say that’s Tecca’s life right now!! I literally never heard about him until he dropped this project. I will be paying attention now tho!! This project has dope beats and his delivery reminds me of that wavy music and I admit it’s lit!!

POST MALONE – HOLLYWOOD’S BLEEDING

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

Post Malone dropped this new project that I can already assume will be doing numbers especially once more singles from off the album start to be on regular rotation. You know that same formula he worked on his last album. While being a hater I just could not deny the fact that he makes hits! Everyone is not lucky to say the same. It’s too early to speak on what this album will do, but stay tuned and watch his magic flow.

CHARLI XCX – CHARLI

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

I love pop artists who love to collaborate with hip hop artists to create real dope ass music! Charli XCX is that type of artist who stays very consistent with that formula! This woman has worked with the Migos guys and the single still was LIT! I definitely love the album especially the album cover! I see you girl! Her album is something you can listen to with your kids in the car, and if you have teens they are most likely jamming right with you too! I can tell her subject matter has matured from the last project as well as a more rough around the edges type of style! I think she is all around dope, and her music and this album reflects that!

GASHI – GASHI

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

Gashi is a new artist that i believe will be gaining more clout going into the new year. He’s a New York artist, but his style sounds way more upbeat and energy driven. I can see him being a crowd pleaser as well has the hood clubs turn up captain in the summer. I truly like his energy! Hopefully he stays consistent so we can hear more of him in 2020!

BOOSIE BADAZZ – BAD AZZ DAY

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

Whoever told Boosie to hook up with producer Zaytoven was smart!! I am amazed that no one has told him this before. This whole project is dope! Boosie gives you his normal Louisiana bounce music while also dropping knowledge for the youngstas on other songs too! Y’all just do not understand that I am truly his fan, and I loved the fact that I had this project on repeat for almost 2 weeks straight!!! This project is definitely a must hear!!!
