Album Review


  • Meek Mill: Wins & Losses (Album Review)

    On wins and losses, we see a side of Meek Mill that we haven’t seen before. He takes his listeners through the struggle and pain of his past years. He is vulnerable but he is stronger now than we were before. Through this pain, he has matured from his...

  • Daye Jack: No Data (Album Review)

    Born in Nigeria, raised in the burbs of Atlanta, inspired by his old man and Steve Jobs to program computers, and downright deadly on the microphone, rapper, singer, and artist Daye Jack really made the most of his first 21 years. “I just want to do me and see...

  • Drake: More Life (Album Review)

    given his tenure as one of pop's most dominate artists, it's stunning that Drake only had his first No. 1 single as a lead artist last year with "One Dance." By the end of 2016, the album had smashed traditional and digital records. For more than a year "Hotline...

  • The Internet : Ego Death (Album Review)

    With their sophomore album entitled “Ego Death”, The Internet offers dreamy and sultry vibes that are indeed something to groove to. Implementing samples of  alternative rock, jazz, funk, soul and hip-hop does something for one who has more than just a listening ear. Don’t bother with trying to put...

  • Chris Brown : X (Album Review)

    Took you long enough, Chris Brown. After several setbacks and a year spent in both rehab and jail, Chris Brown has finally realeased his sixth album, the ever-delayed yet anticipated album, "X." Marking his 10 year mark in the music industry, "X" is sophisticated and myriadic, showcasing the extent...

  • Jazmine Sullivan : Reality Show (Album Review)

    Imagine underrated. Imagine talent beyond limits, a voice meant to shape the world. Now open your eyes and ears and look and see Jazmine Sullivan, her strong, raw voice, one heard and unnoticed, underplayed. That all changes with the release of her third album, "Reality Show," a musical satire...

  • Azealia Banks : Broke With Expensive Taste (Album Review)

     “I can be the answer,” raps 23 year old hip hop artist, Azealia Banks on her debut single “212” back in 2012. After the release of her premier album, Broke With Expensive Taste in November, she just might be.“I’ve been waiting for Azealia Banks,” says Hot 97’s Peter Rosenberg at...

  • G-Eazy : These Things Happen (Album Review)

    In Macklemore’s wake, there’s a hardened consensus that hip-hop is whiter, the old patterns of cultural co-option well underway. G-Eazy slid easily into this old new world, building an organic, devoted fanbase without the explicit mass support of hip-hop’s original audiences. This isn’t a strike against the quality of G-Eazy’s work; his...

  • Mac Miller : Watching Movies With The Sound Off (Album Review)

    Mac Miller skated into rap with all the bottomless happy-go-lucky charm of a best friend’s insouciant little brother. The documents of his early career are the works of a kid very much in love with hip-hop but frustratingly ill-equipped to translate his verve into compelling music. His songs didn’t feel...

  • J. Cole : Born Sinner (Album Review)

    Born Sinner, the heavily referential second LP for Roc Nation signee Jermaine Cole, borrows its title from the Notorious B.I.G.’s "Juicy". By the time you’ve reached the record's end, you’ll have seen him try on a number of familiar hats. He repurposes OutKast's “Da Art of Storytellin Pt. 1” (“Land of the Snakes”) and fashions...

  • Kanye West : Yeezus (Album Review)

    Look at the song title "I Am a God" and it seems like easy blasphemy-- Kanye West's update of John Lennon's "more popular than Jesus" shocker from 1966. But just as the Beatles' proclamation was fuller and wiser in context-- "I believe that what people call God is something in all of...

  • The Dream: IV Play (Album Review)

    The North Carolina birthed and Atlanta raised producer/singer/song writer Terius Nash also known as The- Dream, has released his 5th album entitled IV PLAY. Sad to say that even though he is known for making hits, there are only a few notable hits on the album itself.  The- Dream didn’t even...

  • DAFT PUNK : Random Acces Memories (Album Review)

    The dynamic duo Daft Punk, popular for their robotic feel has created another masterpiece entitled Random Access Memories! The French musicians Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter delivered a revolutionized version of their claim to fame - versatility.
