Sean and I get into the B side of the Scorpion double CD and jump into the R&B side.  Slowly moving from the hard rap side of A.  Drake slows it down in a true to form style that made him an international star.  we discuss this side and close out with his status for the year as best album or not

Drake new release- "Scorpion" Side A

We finally sit down and review this mega 25 track release by Drake.  With anyone else this would be a long drawn out bore, but when it comes to Drake and his super stardom and versatile skills.  We had to wait and see what he would put together.  Here's our take

Jay Rock vs. ASAP Rocky 2018

We close this week out with two very well developed releases by Jay Rock (Redemption) and ASAP Rocky (Testing).  So unique in their way that we left them for last so we would be able to spend the time to highlight and showcase their talent.  Very good listen.

Freddie Gibbs and Black Thought (The Roots)

Sean and I go through a short review of some releases in June that may have been overlooked because of the massive amount of big names releasing something almost as a competition on who's who and whats better.  We review the "Freddie" from Freddie Gibbs and "Streams of Thought, vol 1, by Black Thought.

LiL Baby: Harder than ever

We delve back into trap music and review LIL Baby's Harder than ever 17 track release.  Since we have heard so much coming from the trap music community as well as the folks from Quality Control. Sean throws this young rapper on the table to review and get a good listen too.  A freshman for 2018, so we wonder if he will be part of the XXL freshman class of 2018. 

Royce da 5'9 : Book of Ryan

We return to reviewing R5 after being disappointed by the Pryhme release with Premier.  We open up this new release "Book of Ryan" and he takes us to some where we did not think he could.  We listened to so many artist spill their soul into their music but did not think it would be Royce adding to the quality of music being released.
