NEW MUSIC FRIDAYS

KID CUDI – MAN ON THE MOON 3: THE CHOSEN

Cleveland’s own Kid Cudi is back with the 3rd installment to Man on the Moon, and I am loving it!!! The cadence of this whole project is super dope with an outer space type of feeling. So no problems with playing this album from the beginning to the end. I hope Cudi knows that I am patiently waiting on a collab with Travis Scott…ijs!! It’s not alot of features, but the ones who are, like Skepta, Pop Smoke, Phoebe Bridgers, and Trippie Redd keeps this project LIT!! Rating 10 out of 10

FETTY WAP – YOU KNOW THE VIBES

I get excited anytime I hear of Fetty Wap releasing any project! For some reason, I think fans are still stuck on the Fetty from 2014, when he ahs evolved into a different man. Now I am shocked that he released a project a few months after his brother was murdered, but hey making music or just staying busy doing what you love is a form of therapy. I definitely love this project, and as always it has a super dope vibe. Fetty enlisted features with Monty and Styles P!! Rating 8 out of 10

JACK HARLOW – THAT’S WHAT THEY ALL SAY

I couldn’t wait for Jack Harlow to finally drop his first album!!!! While listening to it all I can think of is WOW….Jack is something to take serious. He already got me ready to place him above the other guy to whom others may call a “Culture Vulture”. With Jack I do not get that type of vibe from him… from the first time I ever heard of him, he’s stayed the same and very consistent. This project flows so smoothly that the cadence of this album shows that the production did a great job! With features from Lil Baby, Big Sean, Chris Brown, Adam Levine, Bryson Tiller, the deceased Static Major, and Est Gee lets you know that this album is a definite must listen!!! Shout out to Louisville, KY y’all do breed talent!!! Rating 9 out of 10

MULATTO – BIG LATTO (EXTENDED VERSION)

Now yall know that I already loved the album, and her adding extra songs to it only made it better!!! Mulatto added 5 additional songs to her full length album including a dope feature from Lil Baby. Rating 9 out of 10

BIA – FOR CERTAIN

Mannnnn, I see why it took forever for BIA to finally come out…..she is the SHIT!!! For Certain is a whole vibe of dope lyrics and beats that will definitely keep your attention from the beginning to the end! My ladies stay winning and BIA is another lady to add to the list. BIA enlisted features from Lil Jon, Lil Durk, Doe Boy and 42 Dugg. Rating 9 out of 10

LIL LOADED – CRIP TAPE

People are looking at Lil Loaded with a side eye these days! Mind you he just got out of jail under the assumption for murder, and advised that he will be releasing new music once he gets out, now here you go! I see why Lil Loaded has a nice fan base, for his music is LIT! Features including Pooh Sheisty, Hotboii, and Big KayBeezy. Rating 7 out of 10

TAYLOR SWIFT – EVERMORE

I wont say too much in regards to this album, especially since this is the 2nd project she has dropped within the year! I get it though, this Coronavirus pandemic has alot of artists feeling uninspired, and I am glad to see that she is one artist who muscles through her problems to always come out on top! Taylor made this beautiful project with only three features from Haim, The National, and Bon Iver. Rating 9 out of 10

KAMAIYAH – NO EXPLANATIONS

This album is hitting! I can tell that Kamaiyah must like that Louisiana beat type for I kept having to remind myself that she’s from Oakland. For this to be Kamaiyah’s first album, she’s coming out hard. She enlisted features from Jackboy and Mozzy, but the rest is all her, and it’s definitely listen worthy!! Rating 9 out of 10

BOLDY JAMES – REAL BAD BOLDY

Boldy James is out here coming to hard and representing those Griselda Boys proudly for he literally has dropped 4 projects this year alone and ALL four are hard!!! Of course it’s hardly any features, but Meyhem Lauren, Stove God Cooks, Eto, Mooch, and Rigz all contribute to the dopeness of this album! Rating 9 out of 10

FXXXXY – DO YOU TRUST ME

Let me first say RIP to Fxxxxy!! It hurts my soul to know that Fxxxxy isn’t here to enjoy this dope ass album!!!! The cadence throughout this whole project is on a whole different level. I can’t even speak anymore on this smh Just know that this project is a must listen and vibe! Rating 10 out of 10

VORY – VORY

I like the vibe that Vory comes with on this project! I can see certain songs becoming certain anthems for us ladies! Rating 8 out of 10

LNDN DRGS – BURNOUT 4

This project is a whole vibe! Its alot of features that I am not going to name because its so many LOL definitely a must listen…good enough for the whole family to listen! Rating 9 out of 10

New Music Fridays

On August 23, 2019 was one of the best days for new music. The reason why I say that?? OMG!!! It had nothing but great and the most anticipated releases I can say for the year, and as I list them I bet you an 100 that you will think so too! I mean literally from every genre it was nothing but dope ass music released!!!
Let’s start with one of my favorite groups of million men Brockhampton!

BROCKHAMPTON – GINGER

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

You can not beat a group that’s filled with nothing but guys who literally are dope ass lyricists, and anytime they drop a project it is literally worth the listen. The album “Ginger” may not hold up to their previous project, but I still enjoyed it never the less. I truly love when the production does not overshadow the voices telling a story. As a listener I feel that you can overall get what you expected from this album.

MISSY ELLIOTT – ICONOLOGY

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

What can I say about Missy “Misdeamenor” Elliott???? OMG…the fact that I am truly a fan and has been one since the 90’s. The fact that I was one of the first people in line at the music store waiting to buy her first solo debut back in the fall of 97…yes…I am completely dating myself but so whaaatt!!! Thaty woman deserves it all! From artist, to songwriter, to producer, to innovator, to just being a dope person overall she is the epitome of what I had aspired to be back as a kid…a song writer/producer. This Ep included only 4 tracks, but to have not heard anything new from Missy in a few years, literally was a breath of fresh air! Trust me when I say that when a person has mastered there craft, regardless of how long it seems that they have been away, when they return, it feels like they never left!

RAPHAEL SAADIQ – JIMMY LEE

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

One of the original member’s from the group Tony, Toni, Tone also the group Lucy Pearl even was featured on Alicia Keys classic “Diary” the list goes on and on of the classic work Raphael has put in! Just like Missy, this man has many talents too which sustained him for all this time! Mind you his original group came out in 1989!! This new album “Jimmy Lee” tells a story of a man who is going through some ups and downs in his life, but the way Raphael constructed this album you would think that it was just a jazz piece..oh no! It’s a story told from the soul, and I believe that some parts of it is a true recollection of Raphael’s memories of one his older brother who is currently deceased.

RAPSODY – EVE

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

Can I just put it out there that this is a Grammy winning album already?? I am just saying LOL Rapsody literally made an album with each song titled, and spoken about powerful Black women!! Ladies Stand Up!! I can not stress how much I truly believed that the year of 2019 is for the women, and this album proves all of it! From the surprising features like J. Cole and Queen Latifah to how Rapsody lyrically breaks down her thoughts very meticulously about each individual truly had hit my soul. Do beleive that this album has been played literally too many times in my car so for right now I had to give it a break!! LOL

I can go on for days about the rest of the albums that was released that day, but I do not want to bore you guys! Check out the rest of my picks below.
