Welcome back to another T.G.I.F. I hope everyone’s week has been positive even during these crazy circumstances! I got some new music from a couple of heavy hitters and even from Cleveland as well. Please make sure to say a prayer for George Floyd and his family. I am getting tired of having to ask the question WHY US??
BARLOS MONTANA – KAPPIN 4 DUMMIES 3
Cleveland native Barlos Montana giving us another installment of Kappin 4 Dummies that sounds more litty than the last! Trust me when I say that after listening to just 2 songs you will be hooked. Some of my favorite tracks include: “Say Less”, “Blessed Dat Bitch”, and “On Go” will have you singing along to the words in no time! LOL I can admit that I was waiting patiently for this project, and he did not disappoint!!
LADY GAGA – CHROMATICA
Just like Lady GaGa said above…I found myself doing the exact same thing!! LOL GaGa scores again with this new Project Chromatica. This album is filled with heavy energy songs whose lyrics have meanings that can be felt, but then an interlude plays for 1 to 2 minutes then it’s party time!!! Her voice is truly a talent, and she is a performer who will be here well over 20 plus years! Im still at Club Quarantine at the house please believe that this album will be part of my playlist Honey!!! A few of the songs I love include: “Rain On Me”, “911”, and “Enigma”.
DIPLO – DIPLO PRESENTS THOMAS WESLEY CHAPTER 1: SNAKE OIL
Listening to Diplo‘s new project Diplo Presents Thomas Wesley Chapter 1: Snake Oil reminds me of a modern cowboy type of western movie and this is the soundtrack! Look! I have a weakness for albums that have themes! They literally give me a whole vibe. Some the tracks that I like the most include: “Heartless”, “Dance With Me” who features Young Thug, and “Real Life Stuff” featuring Julia Michaels & Clever.
LIL YACHTY – LIL BOAT 3
When I found out that Lil Yachty was coming out with another edition of the Lil Boat series I got too excited!! Yall can go back to New Music Friday posts from 2 years ago and I mentioned how everybody talking down on Yachty now, but in a few years they will be riding D!!! Guess what?? I think they need to grab a condom because the ride is about to be REAL!!! This 3rd installment has dope as features including: Future, Tyler The Creator, DaBaby, Drake and A$AP Rocky just to name a few! I can expect to hear some summer 2020 anthems from this project!! Tracks to check out: “T.D.”, “Pardon Me”, “Black Jesus”, “Can’t Go”, “Oprah’s Bank Account”.
FREDDIE GIBBS & ALCHEMIST – ALFREDO
Anything from Freddie Gibbs thats produced by Alchemist will have you on a whole damn vibe! This new project Alfredo sticks to the recipe, but is better than their previous collaboration, in my opinion. The track “Scottie Beam” just had me dying slowly until I heard Rick Ross voice, then I flat lined!!! Then the track that follows it, “Look At Me”, hits you with that Freddie Gibbs flow that makes his style so distinguishable and makes you want more! Even though it’s only 10 tracks, those tracks will satisfy a your earbuds very well!
ACE HOOD – MR. HOOD
I haven’t heard any new music from Ace Hood in a long time. Lately he’s been putting out fitness videos with his new wife, and they’re literally doing very well with that! Mr. Hood is an album that shows a level of maturity from the artist. Even though he’s been out for a little over ten years, he’s always made songs about the regular struggles of life but made it in a way that can motivate you to keep pushing. This new album doesn’t have those type of songs, but still carries itself with radio type of tracks. I personally like “12 O’Clock” that features singer Jacquees. This album gets an honorable mention for the week. Does this mean we will start to get new music from Ace Hood more often??? Hopefully, that is the case!
BIG K.R.I.T. – K.R.I.T. WUZ HERE
Things that I love about BIG K.R.I.T. is that he always stays true to himself, his lyrics stay consistent & on point, he also produces his own music, and represents Mississippi proudly! K.R.I.T. Wuz Here stays true to what I am accustomed to when it comes to K.R.I.T.’s music. Now that he’s been independent we been blessed to see him blossom into an artist to be respected.
Here are my honorable mentions for the week!! Make sure to check them out as well 🙂
SLIMELIFE SHAWTY – NO SLIME LEFT BEHIND
MOTHER NATURE – PORTALZ
MEDHANE – COLD WATER
