N E W M U S I C F R I D A Y S

KELLY ROWLAND – K EP

Thank you Kelly for dropping some feel good music while this world is in such turmoil! I do find it amazing how much Kelly and Beyonce’s voices tend to sound reminiscent of each other, and you do catch it on a couple of songs like “Crazy”. The vibe on this Ep is something I can not describe, but I do know that I do like! Every track is playable from beginning to the end.

ARIANA GRANDE – POSITIONS DELUXE

Would you blame Ariana Grande for coming with a deluxe version of this album?? Nope! Overall, this album is dope, and to include some extra dope songs like the remix to “34+35” who features Megan Thee Stallion and Doja Cat adds to the excitement as well!

KEVIN GATES – ONLY THE GENERALS, PART 2

Kevin Gates is back with another dope ass project that not only showcase his ever evolving skills, but showing his fans that he can hold his own. For this album has no features, for which I believe is his first time! If you been following Kevin lately you will see that he’s been in Mexico, and I see that it’s a main focal point in this project in example the first single ” Plug Daughter”. Per usual, if you’re not inspired by Kevin, and what he has to say…I don’t know what to tell you.

JIM JONES X HARRY FRAUD – THE FRAUD DEPARTMENT

When you think of a Jim Jones and Harry Fraud collab…I think of some Dipset/Griselda/NY flavor!!! Alot to put together, I know, but That’s literally the vibe! There’s some upbeat songs to maybe two step to. Of course Jimmy got all lit features like French Montana, Maino, Conway The Machine, and others!! I am a fan of Jim Jones so anything he does deserves a listen.

TRIPPIE REDD – PEGASUS: NEON SHARK VS PEGASUS PRESENTED BY TRAVIS BARKER (DELUXE)

Like Lil Wayne Trippie Redd is testing those Rock waters, and while it may not catch you first, it will catch you later! Fans will get to hear their regular Trippie on the 2nd half. So its rock out with you cock out then it turns into trippy trap music! With over 20 songs I bet you will listen to it all.

EBHONI – X EP

Already a big in Canada, and now she’s ready for the big leagues! I think this 4 track ep will help give her that extra boost! You can’t help but to love what you hear.

BABY BASH – EL NATURAL

Baby Bash always finds a way to come with some real ish for ya! He surely didn’t fail with this project and has alot of dope features from your West coast favs!!

MO B DICK – UNAPOLOGETICALLY

A New Orleans OG is on alert!!! The original member of Beatz by the Pound has been solo for awhile now, but wasn’t making any music. Now Mo B Dick is back with some jams to vibe to!

GHETTS – CONFLICT OF INTEREST

LIL ZAY OSAMA – TRENCH BABY

NEW MUSIC FRIDAYS

ARIANA GRANDE – POSITIONS

As Ariana is growing with her music, I can’t help but to love her more and more. Such a talent and stays with the dopest features and nice vibes throughout the whole album.

BUSTA RHYMES – EXTINCTION LEVEL EVENT 2: THE WRATH OF GOD

Not only am I super excited for Busta Rhymes to drop part 2 from 1998’s Extinction Level Event 1! Then listening to the album has me in total awe. First, shoutout to Busta Rhymes for copying 21 Savages style with including Chris Rock on his album. Wait, dope ass features with BBD, M.O.P., Rick Ross and even Minister Farrakhan speaks, and others. Overall this is a dope project. Yes it doesn’t compare to the first Extinction Level Event, but the 2nd half of the album does get LIT! Busta is an artist who is not going anywhere nor getting rid of his lyrical flows.

SAM SMITH – LOVE GOES

What I enjoy about Sam Smith’s music is that you can feel it in your soul, and is very relatable. This album feels like the soundtrack to just about everybody’s life and experiences in this crazy year of 2020. Of course Sam made sure to include some dance tracks while belting out heart felt lyrics provides the recipe to a great album.

WIZKID – MADE IN LAGOS

It’s been 3 years since WizKid has dropped his own album. Now we did get some great music from him a couple months ago when Beyonce re-released the Lion King soundtrack, but it just wasn’t all WizKid tho! Just like his last album be prepared to groove with the tight riddims on this project. Even the intro had me ready to slow wine imagining I am on an island somewhere! Great project overall…I always expect the best work from WizKid.

KING VON – WELCOME TO O’BLOCK

One thing I love about King Von is he is a story teller. He will have you thinking you are there in Chicago! On this project expect to hear from mainly Chicago artists which is very dope, always represent for your hometown especially when the love is being returned back! This project is definitely a step up from his previous work, and overall I like it.

TRIPPIE REDD – PEGASUS

I do not know what people was complaining about? I like this album. Trippie does come off with a more calmer and quieter sound than on his previous work, but the sound works for him. I think he has mastered his cadence in music for no matter how he changes it up, it still comes together and sounds great! Of course he has all the dope features including Cleveland’s own, Doe Boy, who has a project coming out November 6th. If you are a true fan of Trippie Redd you will definitely enjoy this album as well.

COMMON – A BEAUTIFUL REVOLUTION

Common always thinks outside of the box and stay dropping music that makes you think and vibe for the production is always dope! Honestly can’t find nothing negative about music that is supposed to uplift you especially during these crazy times.

MADEINTYO – NEVER FORGOTTEN

I look at MadeinTYO like a new version of TY Dolla $ign. They’re both dope with the productions and can make decent albums for themselves! Now I was shocked to see that the producer had came out with an album. Now I am so happy! LOL Forreal this album totally is a banger. Each track will have you boppin your head, plus with features from a mixture of people like J Balvin to Cam’ron to even Wiz Khalifa.

LIL KEED – TRAPPED ON CLEVELAND 3 DELUXE

I am not going to say too much about this deluxe version for I spoke highly on the regular album when it came out. Since 2020 is the year for all these deluxe albums Lil Keed said shit why not? LOL The new songs that he has added on the deluxe add to the already flavored album. Basically saying Lil Keed is LIT.

JIMMY VALENTIME & URBAN MIRACLE – DANGEROUS TO GO ALONE

You can tell that Jimmy is straight into old school hip hop which nothing is wrong with that for I do like how he blends it with the current style of hip hop now. The first 3 tracks had me wondering what was I getting into, but then the song “Porch Lights” comes on and I found myself vibing to it hard. Next thing I know the rest of the album was dope! This is one of the reasons why I love to listen to albums, for 1 single truly does not give an artist any justice.

JALEN FRAZIER – EXPRESSIONS OF THE NEGLECTED

The Midwest knows how to come thru with some good music and dope lyrics. That’s what Jalen did with this project. I feel like this is the best ending to a TGIF! I am glad this artist reached out to me, and that I actually took the time to check him out. After your first listen I bet that you will not be disappointed at all.

JEAN DAWSON – PIXEL BATH

To describe Jean Dawson’s music is combining rock with house type of beats with a little mix of grunge on the side, then BOOM you have this dope project from such an eclectic artist. With only one feature from A$AP Rocky, you find yourself very interested in finding out more about this artist.

D DOUBLE E – D.O.N. (DOUBLE OR NOTHING)

If you are into the UK’s version of Drill music, you will definitely enjoy this project! D Double E is a diverse artist for he has a reggae track featuring the lovely Ms. Banks. With dope lyrics to match his swagger…he can’t go wrong.

THEY. – THE AMANDA TAPE

I totally love this project!! They. definitely created a vibe on this project. You can literally play this project from beginning to the end without skipping a track, if this is the type of energy you search for! They. only has 3 features including my girl Tinashe, Wale, and Juicy J. With quality production and real stories to tell in a dope vibe wins every time!!

DEJ LOAF – SELL SOLE II

It’s been a awhile since we heard from Detroit’s own Dej Loaf! I admit being a newbie with a breakout hit that changed the game for her is quite overwhelming to any artist for everyone will be expecting the exact same thing when that’s not realistic! You can tell that Dej has evolved on this project, especially with sounding so transparent. I don’t even want to mention who her features are LOL I literally want yall to check her album out. PERIOD!

DAVE EAST – KARMA 3 (DELUXE)

This project was already dope AF! Now Dave decided to follow in the common trend of this year by coming out with a deluxe version of his album Karma 3! Honestly, I am excited fr. This just made the original project much better with adding a remix LOL This is definitely a must listen.

CHUCK STRANGERS – TOO AFRAID TO DANCE

I love this artist story telling!!! Listening to this project had me thinking of cold nights in black n white LOL If the Ep sounds like this…I can’t wait to see what Chuck has coming next!

TRAPBOY FREDDY – BIG TRAP

TRAP! TRAP! TRAP! This is definitely what you want to hear on a good Friday!!

JOYNER LUCAS – EVOLUTION

I swear Joyner Lucas does not get the credit he so fully deserves! His music is always on point, from his lyrics to the production, which sounds like each song should be in someone’s soundtrack! Joyner is literally a true talent, he makes you feel proud! It’s ALL BLACK EVERYTHING!!

CHANEL WESTCOAST – AMERICA’S SWEETHEART

I can’t even lie…I was anxious to hear Chanel’s project! Overall I am happily surprised, and she isn’t on here trying to be the dopest lyricist ever or have a trillion Black rappers featured just to so how down she is. To be down isn’t something that can be staged, and what I am getting from this project is a piece of Chanel’s life outside of MTV’s Ridiculous. Congratulations Chanel! This project is nice, and you will be shocked to hear the tone of her voice on this project too.

COMETHAZINE – BAWSKEE 4

I just want to input some fire flames all in this comment section! Comethazine came hard on this project…he letting you know that you can’t count him out PERIOD!!!

YAK GOTTI – GOTTI OUTTA HERE

Young Thug literally creating his own lane with his Slimes, and that’s also including Yak Gotti. I will say that Gotti is Outta Here for this project is lit! Dope features with Gunna, Lil Duke, and all the other Slime members Yak Gotti got the recipe for him to win!!

CERAADI – #GRWM

This ep is really dope! I totally enjoyed it …I am anxious to hear more of them in the future!

NEW MUSIC FRIDAYS

NINA NICOLE – YOUNICORN

Nina Nicole is back with some super heat for these streets!!! She represents what I expect to see out of a Boss Chick! Originally from Cleveland, but now residing in Houston…I can definitely see the growth! Plus the dope features on this album is what does it for me…PERIOD!

PAPOOSE – ENDANGERED SPECIES

I can not lie…It has been ages since I checked in out any Papoose album. Not saying that his music isn’t worth the listen…it just wasn’t my thing, but for those who do love his music…this album will be the shit for you guys! Papoose definitely reminds everyone that outside of his famous wife, he is someone to not play with.

TREY SONGZ – BACK HOME

Trey Songz never seems to let me down when it comes to his music. I mean literally since day 1! I love this albums whole cadence as well as how smoothly it moves on to the next track. He calls this album “Back Home” , and I hope that means he’s back to being a great artist and person all around. Stay proving the haters wrong Trey!

BLOCBOY JB – FATBOY

BlocBoy JB is another artist that when I hear his music, I expect to turn TF up!!! This album literally gives me what I am expecting.

CASSIDY – DA SCIENCE

Yea…like what he said! Cassidy still been on his flow little did people know, he was just waiting for the right time to BLOW!!! I am glad that he sticking to his craft, and came out with a dope project that gets better as each track plays.

NEW MUSIC FRIDAYS

ALICIA KEYS – ALICIA

Alicia Keys is back with another great production also known as her 7th album! The #1 artist of the millennium continues with her formula of motivational songs, stories of love, and regular day to day observations. I love to see Alicia on these charts for she is a breath of fresh air to this music game. Literally a representation of when your actual talent is the reason for everything. No, this album does not compare to my favorite album “The Diary of Alicia Keys”, but this album is definitely one that will be on the Top 10 charts! Alicia made sure to enlist dope features for this project like Tierra Whack, Miguel, Khalid, Jill Scott, and others.

SHY GLIZZY – YOUNG JEFE 3

Shy Glizzy is back with another dope ass project to vibe to. I admit that I had gotten used to the Shy Glizzy that I first heard back in 2013, but I can say that Shy Glizzy stays making dope music that everyone can vibe to. This 3rd installment of “Young Jefe” has some dope features including Meek Mill, Jeremih, Ty Dolla Sign, G Herbo, and others. Trust me when I say that by the time you get to track 5 the album turns up!

ARMANI CAESER – THE LIZ TAPE

Being the 1st lady of Griselda Records means that Armani Caesar has alot of weight on her shoulders, but what I like about her….she has her own lane, just like the rest of the artist under that label are. I truly love the album cover, Elizabeth Taylor was a different type of classic beauty that seemed to be priceless, and Armani is letting everyone know that she is something special to this game. This dope ass project has features from Westside Gunn, Conway The Machine, and Benny The Butcher.

LIL TECCA – VIRGO WORLD

Lil Tecca came hard for his first project! Literally almost every song on this project is an official bop forreal!! I am looking forward to what the future holds for him. Tecca enlisted dope ass features from Polo G, Lil Durk, Nav, Lil Uzi Vert, Internet Money, and more!

MONEYBAGG YO X BLAC YOUNGSTA – CODE RED

Moneybagg Yo and Blac Youngsta were supposed to release they own projects, but at the last minute decided to turn things to a collaboration! Hey…why not?? They’re both on Yo Gotti’s label, as well as from different parts of Memphis, Tennessee, and both are favorites amongst the Hip Hop crowd. This project got some dope tracks that are some true bops and with features from Ari, 42 Dugg, Yo Gotti, City Girls, DaBaby, and others is guaranteed to keep this project on repeat!

BIZZY BONE – THE MANTRA

Cleveland, Ohio legend and one of the dopest rappers from the most talented rap group, Bone Thugs N Harmony, Bizzy Bone, is back with another project that is such a vibe! No features of course, but when you are Bizzy Bone, you can hold your own on any project! If you do not believe me please check your facts!!! This is a dope ass project overall!

SKIPPA DA FLIPPA – UNDER.STAND.ABLE

Skippa Da Flippa always come with that heat and he stays very consistent! This project got bops starting from track 1 to the end. Too bad this project is only an Ep!!! It makes you want to hear more LOL

This artist did exactly what I expected from him…to give me some good energy!! This whole project is dope af! From features with Eric Bellinger, Mysonne, 38 Spesh, Jim Jones, and more….plus great lyrical flow that makes sense. Grafh can’t go wrong with this project at all!!

PROBLEM – COFFEE X KUSH VOL.2

Problem is always causing a damn problem releasing dope ass music that I just feel so addicted to! This project is consistent with volume 1, but what I am noticing is that every one of these artists are using their platform to speak against the injustice and abuse Black Americans have been going through especially in 2020. Problem made sure to speak on his thought from this year and I feel him. Of course Problem had to enlist some dope artist to partake in his vision including Tyrese, Jack Harlow, Jay Rock, Freddie Gibbs, Snoop Dogg and more!

CURREN$Y X HARRY FRAUD – THE DIRECTORS CUT

I can’t tell you guys a time that Curren$y came weak on a project. With production from Harry Fraud, this album is definitely a must listen. Usually Curren$y does not use too many features, but I see for this project he went IN! Features including: Trippie Redd, Snoop Dogg, Styles P, and Larry June….I instantly got excited. This whole project is nothing but a vibe that I will say please check it out!!!

AMINE – LIMBO

It’s knew it was about time for Amine to drop another album!! I think it’s been since 2017!!!! Please believe that not only is the wait over, but it was well worth the wait. This sophomore album sounds like he really took his time and even made a very good dedication to the recently deceased ex NBA player, Kobe Bryant. Overall, this is a great album with a lot of feel good tracks with dope lyricism to top it off!

DABABY – BLAME IT ON BABY (DELUXE)

If you are looking for some feel good music with some reggae feel…this album will give you that fix! Popcaan goes in on this album, even Drake is featured on this blazing album.

ROD WAVE – PRAY 4 LOVE (DELUXE)

I see the formula for re-releasing albums with additional songs by which makes the project a deluxe version. Like Dababy, I like the songs a little more that was added onto the original album. I personally enjoy Rod Wave’s music for he makes music that you can feel, and this project is something his fans will definitely enjoy.

TOBE NWIGWE – THE PANDEMIC PROJECT

This right here!!!!!!!! OMFG THIS RIGHT HERE!!!!! This is a project that we been needed and I suggest for all to listen to. This project represents everything we people of color are feeling especially during this year of 2020. Great work Tobe!!

BRANDY – B7

To see that one of my favorite singers/actresses finally released some new music I was totally ecstatic!!! It literally been 8 years since she has released anything new!

SUMMER WALKER – LIFE ON EARTH EP

In my mind Summer Walker can not do any wrong even though I think she’s a special in a good way, she always comes out with music that you find yourself playing on repeat. These 5 tracks is like a teaser to my soul! Once the ep ended…I wanted more! Thank to Summer I am anxious for what is to come next.

JUICEWRLD – LEGENDS NEVER DIE

Even though JuiceWRLD is deceased this posthamus album gives you this feeling like he’s still here! I truly love how this album was composed & arranged. Hopefully he’s above smiling down on the world for I think he would be greatly pleased with this album. It’s a definite must listen.

TOBI LOU – LINGO STARR EP

I can not lie….this ep contains 3 of the best songs I ever heard, and how Tobi has the songs arranged is too freaking dope. Like right now I am sitting here thinking to myself like Damn…thats it?? LOL

PHILTHY RICH – REAL HATE

Being that I am from the Midwest, we do not hear too much of what’s hot over on the West coast, but I can say that after hearing Philthy Rich the first time, I had to make sure that I checked his music out every time something new was released. This new project will do just that.

K CAMP – RARE FAMILY

If you are a K Camp fan you know that his music always comes with a lil bump to it. I believe this is album does just that! This is the 2nd compilation that I have heard from K Camp and RARE Sounds and in my opinion….I totally enjoyed this album.
