★★★★★: Back when this album 1st dropped I always said I’d wait until I bought the CD to do a proper review. I finally found the CD at a record store a couple weeks ago, so here it is, as promised. My review of Nipsey Hu$$le’s long-awaited debut album, “Victory Lap”. RIP Nip.
★★: A bland, a distorted assortment of songs filled with recycled phrases, vocabulary, and themes throughout Future’s career.
★★★★1/2: Revisiting Little Simz’s “GREY area” for the 2nd time.
★★★: Hearing Intellect try melodies on “Your Eyes” was refreshing, but probably would sound more polished if he tried it more often
★★★: Most of my favorite moments on XIII: Far From Here are on the 2nd half of the album
★★★1/2: Chicago up & comer Queen Key delivers a project that touches on a variety of subject matter over various production!
★★★★: Backed by Sean House’s 1980s contemporary vibes & pop-soul samples, Umbrella Symphony is a perfect backdrop to Curren$y’s laid-back lyrics.
