Being a fan of Freddie Gibbs, during our last review it was mentioned that he needed some serious production help as well as a few features. In jumps super producer Madlib. Following a lot of his instrumental albums I have been a fan for a while but lately he has been producing a lot of others. With this combination we looked forward to hearing this release
This wasn’t something we really were waiting for after the mixed reviews of NAGA last year. But this really interesting throwback production was something that came out of no where. Lets see what Sean’s opinion is.
Sean introduces the two Logic release for the year a soundtrack and the 6 studio release. a Hip hop album “Confessions of a dangerous mind”. And the Soundtrack to a novel he released called “Supermarket. we touch on both releases and we have our preference.
Almost fresh off our review of his last years critically acclaimed release Flower boy. We get this new change and feel from Tyler after he has done some commercial high viz projects. We review the new 12 track release Igor and debate its merits so to speak
We have been feeling ScHoolboy for a minute. Me not so major but his appearance has always been worth while. So with his 2019 release was another one of the artist we looked forward to hearing. With a 5 songs with features on a 14 track release. We wanted to lay back and check this one out.
I’ve been a fan of James Blake for years. With his odd sound but soothing voice that went with so much but not quite with anything. He made you listen for different reasons and some how you would hear him sprinkled in with some hip hop folks. His dark brooding sound that was heard for years could have been a precursor to the young depressed sound you some times hear today. But this new release has a tone that’s unfamiliar but quite refreshing. This is the evolution of James Blake with a touch of his hip hop buddies help.
This young crooner wrote his song American Teen at 17 and now as he’s going on 21 he has another solid full length release Free spirit. He got a sweet intro by Apple by being featured on their memoji commercial with his single “talk”. We sit down to listen to his 17 track new release. Still listening to R&B right now. Go figure.
We get a second chance to listen to a new feature release for Anderson Paak. It was surprising that he would come out with another release so quickly but the sound and feel of this release is something Sean and I wanted to discuss.
Our next R&B release is a spiritual amazing sequel to a seat at the table that transcend lyrics and takes you into another level of music. Sean and I kept silent about our review until we sat down to review it together. This is our thoughts.
When I Get Home is the fourth studio album by American singer and songwriter Solange, released on March 1, 2019. It is the follow-up to her 2016 album A Seat at the Table and explores Solange Knowles' hometown of Houston, Texas
We flip into our R&B releases that we were happy to break from the the rap scene for a session or two. We start with a new comer and social media darling Doja Cat. Sadly her image grabbed our attention along with her viral song "Mooo!" So we started almost blindly with some preconceived thoughts on what this gorgeous artist would sound like and present
