Most mornings I like to get hype before going into work. Get the juices flowing. Every week or 2 there’s a song that just stays on repeat. This song is usually what coworkers see me bouncing to as I pass by them looking for a parking spot. If they only knew how nice of a jam this was. Simply, this week has been a biotch at work but Naughty got me to Friday! Thanks fellas.
So this is the first project that we get from the TDE camp for the new year. This is also Isaiah Rashad’s first official project. I’ve been feeling the random songs that I’ve heard from this guy so I’m hoping that this album hits on all cylinders. Let’s see what this project is about. Continue reading
At some point during the year I heard some music that just couldn’t be ignored. I had to listen to it regardless of the genre. I would like to know what your top 5 would be as well! Continue reading
It feels like I haven’t done a review in ages. I didn’t really know what to expect with this album. It felt like it came out of nowhere, which is the way I prefer artists to release albums. I didn’t set my expectations high or low either, so let’s see what we’re working with… Continue reading
Been waiting 2 years so this sh#t better be 100% pure. Continue reading
It’s nice to hear a song from a band that you have never heard of and like it. It’s even better when that band releases a full album without all of the promotional timeline bull@#@t and it’s actually worthy of playing all the way through without skipping a single track. This is rare in the indie world.
Made in Japan has managed to do that with the release of their new album Tame All Those Thoughts. My first encounter with the band came after I heard their song Follow the Leader. I thought of this band to be similar to Panama but with more free energy and a bit more experimental. For some reason I am surprised by the quality of this new album. The album starts out with a song called Continue reading
It literally feels like it has been forever since we’ve had a new album from Black Milk. Whats even crazier is that I get a new album from one of my favorite producers this month and Satch gets a new album from one of his favorite producers, Oddisee, as well. I’m kind of anxious to hear what this new Black Milk sounds like so let’s dive into it. Continue reading
Been waiting to hear this joint for a minute so I’m excited. It’s hard to predict what a Dom album may sound like. Let’s see if its truly the concept type of album that he has been speaking of. Continue reading
I have been curious to find out what this project from Vic Mensa would sound like. I’ve noticed lately that his flow resembles Chance the Rapper’s and I was just hoping that maybe some of that will be carried over to this project and he would leave those really pop like songs off. I guess we will see, so let’s get into it. Continue reading
So lately I have been cleaning up the inbox and taking time to respond to emails. I have been listening to a lot of submitted music as well and responding with feedback. I did notice that a group that I have listened to before called The Procussions recently released a new self titled album. I had to listen to their new project because I know one of their songs gets heavy rotations on one of my pod playlists. I was excited to hear it and at the same time I was skeptic because these days you can’t get your hopes up on receiving a solid album from new artists. I will have to tell you that I was very satisfied with what I heard and just wanted to share my thoughts on the project. Continue reading
