It literally feels like it has been forever since we’ve had a new album from Black Milk.

I’m kind of anxious to hear what this new Black Milk sounds like so let’s dive into it. Continue reading
An Album That Will Get Your Creative Juices Flowing
Sometimes whenever I’m in a jam, creatively, I like to throw on some music to help me move forward and get out all of my ideas. I usually needs something that’s easy to listen to, something that isn’t overrun by a heavy bassline or thumping drums. I prefer something that’s simple but the overall product may have some type of complexity to it. Luckily I had something provided for me in our inbox that helped me to get back on the right path. This album called Dust & Loops by Gated contained just the right elements. From the way it starts off with the song entitled Continue reading

Chuck Inglish – Droptops EP (album review)
The release of this project kind of caught me by surprise. Now the first thing that pops in my head is will his solo album, Convertibles, still drop on May 31st?? I sure hope so because When Fish Ride Bicycles left a sour taste in my mouth. Chuck usually doesn’t drop any mixtapes except for instrumentals so my expectations for this project were a collage of singles that he released over the past year. Nevertheless it deserves some attention. Continue reading
