8.2/10 Best Tracks: “Together” “Missing My Idols” “Forever Ever” Worst Tracks: “Bird Shit” “Shake It Up” In an era where the newest “mumble rapper” pops up every week, it’s easy to label Trippie Redd as a product of this wave and throw him into the mix, especially because of how quickly he has recently come up. He really only started taking off with his music … Continue reading TRIPPIE REDD “LIFE’S A TRIP” ALBUM REVIEW
Kanye is really good at making us wait for albums, especially since this one wasn’t officially released on streaming services until about 10 am this morning, despite it being promised last night. Anyways, Kanye threw another listening party similar to the one he did for ye, except this one was actually set around a huge fire in a ghost town giving it a spooky feeling … Continue reading KANYE WEST & KID CUDI “KIDS SEE GHOSTS” ALBUM REVIEW
On May 25th, A$AP Rocky returned from the 3 year hiatus he had taken from his career just like Bruce Wayne in the Dark Knight Returns, releasing his third studio album TESTING. Rocky definitely had been gassing this album up claiming it was bringing new sounds and experimentation with it. I don’t believe it was as sonically experimental as it was made to bed, but … Continue reading A$AP ROCKY “TESTING” ALBUM REVIEW
NAV is back to represent all of Toronto and show everyone that he is still “the first brown boy to get it poppin”. I haven’t really been keeping up with NAV so I was surprised when this album popped up on my Spotify. Last summer when he dropped his mixtape collaboration with Metro Boomin’, Perfect Timing, I was playing it everywhere I went for a solid month. I really couldn’t help myself because of the fact that he had superstar features every third track. This man really got Gucci, Lil Uzi, Carti, Offset and 21 Savage on the project! Anyways, high expectations were definitely set as I entered his first official studio album, Reckless. Unfortunately I came to the realization that without the help of others, NAV’s music is relatable to taking a Xanax…I don’t really remember a lot of it. Continue reading “NAV “RECKLESS” ALBUM REVIEW”
Kyle is finally here with his first debut album Light of Mine to fill everyone’s summer with SuperDuperHappinessandGoodVibes. Oh wait, this album is actually a deep dive into Kyle’s mind of alternating depression and girl problems. Well it’s definitely different than his other work and I was excited to listen. I have personally been a real big fan of Kyle for a few years after discovering his fire track “Keep It Real” off of his 2013 project titled Beautiful Loser and keeping it on replay for a few months. This continued with his very much overlooked 2015 project, Smyle which was exceptional and really showed that he has a lot of potential. However, Light of Mine shows an unfamiliar style of Kyle that took me by surprise. This newly released album is a great effort at looking into Kyle’s sad side, which is rarely seen or portrayed, while also providing a few summer hits despite it being clouded by an annoying concept with Lil Yachty.
