Came across this link today. From the snippets this sounds like something extremely special, peep
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
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
I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from this album. I knew what I wanted to hear from it. I wanted to hear some of that mellow music that he makes and some of those hookah lounge exotic productions from 40. I wanted to hear those humble verses that he spits from time to time that lets you know how talented he really is. I want to hear songs that I could chill and hit the hookah to. I want to hear that Toronto shit. I try not to make my expectations high at this point so let’s see what we are working with. Continue reading

This song is wonderful. I can’t stop listening to it.
What a treat for Jigga to drop something new for the summer. I think that it’s kind of surprise how it actually release when they said it was going to. Roc Nation trying to dominate the summer huh. So let’s get into it. Continue reading
Interesting, Get Home Safe due out sometime this year.
Kanye West’s status has risen and he’s in the public eye even more now than ever, so let see what’s happened to him musically.
1. “On Sight”
Satchford: With Daft Punk on the beat, I knew Tron would come to mind. This is some futuristic, do the robot on a motorcycle type music. That soul sample that comes in is crazy and the intro verse set it all up that Yeezy season has come again. Its different, but im digging it.
Yeezy season approaching
Fuck whatever y’all been hearing
Fuck what, fuck whatever y’all been wearing
A monster about to come alive again
Soon as I pull up and park the Benz
We get this bitch shaking like Parkinsons
S.G.: I’m not feeling that sound at the beginning of the song, it’s annoying. I like the soul break featuring the Holy Name of Mary Choral Family. The rest of the song seems kind of choppy and it doesn’t really provide a persistent rhythm. Yet I appreciate Kanye’s attempt to bring something different to the game.
2. “Black Skinhead”
Satchford: The overall feel of this reminds me of the african performance during Coming To America. Some true tribal music. Love Lockdown? You hear that yelling in the background? He spazzed on this. The SNL performance was dope too.
Middle America packed in
Came to see me in my black skin
Number one question they asking
Fuck every question you asking
If I don’t get ran out by Catholics
Here come some conservative Baptists
Claiming I’m overreacting
Like them black kids in Chiraq bitch
S.G.: I like how this song starts out similar to one of those songs that they would play at the beginning of basketball games.
They see a black man with a white woman at the top floor they going to try to come to kill King Kong
I enjoy the chorus, it’s got a nice build up to it. Those drums are hitting so hard, definitely Rick Rubin inspired. Continue reading
Since I failed to get her props for co-producing Schoolboy Q’s “Collard Greens” she gets her own separate post. This song is pretty nice and I think I’m going to listen to her album entitled The Verdict today while I’m working. Enjoy!
