★★★1/2: Uzi spits bar-after-bar in rapid succession with no hooks, over G-Herbo’s drill classic, “Gangway”.
We celebrate Doja Cat’s recent resurgence since her 2018 obstacles.
★★★: will Megan pigeon-hole herself as a sex-object so deep that her fanbase and/or label won’t respond if she steps away from sexual content?
★★★1/2: Fahim manages to sneak some gun-bars between his uplifting messages, but he’s still able to drive home his overlaying message of positivity and motivation
Meg lures listeners in with seductive social media snippets, but her skillful passion for rapping arguably outshines her sex appeal.
★★★★: The album cover is gross, but don’t let it stop you from listening to @KARIFAUX’s story of drug abuse & loss
★★★1/2: Phillmore Greene’s deploys a familiarly comforting 90s East-Coast styled cadence, with a premium on flow and clarity.
★★★★: In-depth & packed with personal anecdotes. Live instruments in production + an impressive lyrical display by UK rapper, Little Simz
VINYL OF THE WEEK #18, featuring Peter Frampton’s 1977 classic “I’m In You”, recorded at Jimi Hendrix’s Electric Lady Studios!
Best R&B albums of the decade featuring D’Angelo, Sampha, Solange Knowles, Miguel, and more!
★★★1/2: An easy listening experience full of reassuring mantras.
★★★: The song structure is there + Lil Baby is a good fit for a feature, but other than that, “TRAP” feels like a song about the trap solely for the sake of having a trendy song about trapping. Redundant.
