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

It’s Mz Slimgoody back with my reviews on certain albums that were released within the last few weeks. Some projects were very much anticipated while some were mediocre, but still listen worthy for I love plenty more bounce to the ounce!! LMAO *insert my corny ass jokes*

YOUNG M.A. – Herstory In The Making
Mannnnn….how long have we been waiting on Young M.A. to FINALLY drop her project?? One thing I am very proud to say is that this wait is very well worth it! While listening to her album it felt good to hear the different producers she has worked with down to even Zaytoven! A New York flow with a southern producer? HUH?? Sounds crazy right? Guess what? She rode that beat! I love how she allowed us to really get to know her story from rapping about her love life and how certain emotions have affected her creativity at times. This project proved to me that Young M.A. is still here to stay!

DaBaby – Kirk
Who knew while the country was mourning the unexpected death of Nipsey Hussle, DaBaby while still making a name for himself as well as topping the charts, had lost his father on the same day. He mentioned in a recent interview that his father’s death was what inspired him to name his second project after him. Now I will say that after hearing the intro, which is very deep and heart felt, the rest of the album is what you will expect to hear from DaBaby. He has such a flow about himself, and is very good at telling visual stories, but I believe when it comes to production, he stays very safe with sticking to what works for him. DaBaby has a few songs that I love, like the hidden feature with Nicki Minaj that even upped her “A” game!

Kevin Gates – I’m Him
Kevin Gates came thru with a new project since getting out of jail in early 2018. He had a few mixtapes that were released, but I think that now Kevin is in a better place mentally and spiritually. His involvement can be heard on this new album. Kevin is even giving more interviews as of recently promoting this project, and even speaking more in a positive light on his growth and the changes he has endured to put him in the space he is now currently in. Of course Kevin is still gritty, hardcore, and spiritually felt on his album. I had to listen to it a few times prior to speaking on it, but overall it’s worth it.

Nivea – Mirrors
When I seen that singer, Nivea had finally dropped an album I was so excited!! I mean come on…it’s been over 10 plus years since we even had a single! I think the latest music we heard from her was a feature on Lil Wayne’s “Carter V” album. Now we have “Mirrors” and we finally can hear what Nivea has been up to in all these years!! Some of the songs you can tell were made awhile ago while there are some that were made recently. This project sounds like a smorgasbord of music put together to let us know her versatility. On a recent interview she mentioned that she will like to get into song writing again for other artists. I do think that you have to listen to the project more than once to gain a real perspective of it.

Sabrina Claudio – Truth Is
This artist has such a sultry voice that tells sweet stories of love and heart break. I do not know what it is that attracted me to this artist, but I truly vibe to her music. Sabrina’s new project goes right into more stories of a relationships ups and downs with a bluesy feel to it. She has a way of telling a depressing story that makes it sounds so good you forget the heart break in the song! I swear this album is perfect break up music.

Summer Walker – Over It

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js
This is one of my most anticipated albums for this year! I truly love her voice and the stories she tells I can truly relate to! It’s hard for me to describe exactly my thoughts for her album which aren’t bad by any means but if you have been a fan over Summer’s I think you will get what I am saying!! I love beautiful voices over dope ass beats that you can listen to even while chilling with your dude! Her project is definitely a must listen!!

Here are the other dope releases to check out!!!

MANIAC BLAC, T.I. & PLIES NEW MUSIC VIDEOS

Over the weekend I had the chance to check out some new music videos from 2 of my favorite artists: T.I. and Plies. Certified King of the South, T.I. just dropped his 10th album entitled “Dime Trap”. While hot single Wraithe with a hot feature by Meek Millz keeps climbing the Billboard charts, T.I. has now dropped the video to The Weekend featuring Young Thug and Swizz Beatz. Check it out below:

On Thursday, Plies made an Instagram video promoting that a new video featuring Kevin Gates was going to drop on Friday titled All The Above. I assumed that this song was going to be about a love interest due to ALL the flowers I seen in Plies background as if he got a boo to be giving them out to! He must’ve forgotten that I been his “Shawty” since 2007 *TUH* LOL I thought this was going to be a weird collab, but actually it is not! Check it out below:

On Sunday during one of 216 The Beat’s Hit Or Miss Show #team216thebeatcleveland got the chance to be introduced to the featured artist of the day, Maniac Blac. What’s funny is, his name had me thinking he was going to be rapping about some gangsta shit! Actually, I feel like you can take some knowledge from his music. For example, the video to the single Luv Is A Feeling featuring J Ride & Dj Krucial is about a man who is so involved with the street life that even after his woman tells him how he seems to choose the streets over her, but unfortunately does not thinks about it until he is taking his last dying breath. I know…DEEP..right?? Sadly to say that is the biography of a lot of hood rich friends & family we love. Check the video out below & make sure to comment!!!
