As I get older, I totally appreciate seeing the evolvement of such a talented artist as time goes on.

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)

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.

MICHAEL AND THE INFLUENCE – DRUG DEALERS DREAM FOR THE UNITITATED

Who does 10 years in jail to come back out with a podcast, dope ass project, and repping from the south east side of Cleveland, OH??? This guy right here named Michael! I particularly enjoyed all of the tracks on his project, but only 5 are my favorites. With only 12 tracks on this project…that is not bad at all! This is a must listen project…I don’t know what he has planned but i think that if he decides to stay in this music game, I think he will last for a long time. Congratulations Mike!!

LOGIC – NO PRESSURE

So Logic decided that this will be his last album. He says that now it’s time to be a father, and I not only understand that but I commend him for making that sacrifice! Will he stay retired from the game? Ummmm…per past references like, Jay-Z and Master P, who have a made so called last albums to turn right around and make another album. This album by Logic is so strategically done. You will hear some samples that will make you bob your head and just vibe to his music. Overall, I wish Logic and his family the best!

TAYLOR SWIFT – FOLK LORE

At times you have credit where credit is due, and Taylor Swift is that woman. She returns with an album telling more stories of love, heartbreak, and motivational thoughts that everyone will relate to. We must always give flowers to those are still living.

LUPE FIASCO & KAELIN ELLIS – HOUSE EP

GUNNA – WUNNA (DELUXE)

CURREN$Y & HARRY FRAUD – THE OUTRUNNERS

J. COLE – LEWIS STREET

He finally gave us some sneak peeks to his upcoming album!!!!
