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 end the 3 part review of the music awards for 2018 with a few reviews that we enjoyed based on the lyrical abilities of these artist. Ending with the Album/Artist of the year, that doesn’t line up too well with the Grammy’s. Especially the crime of not including J. Cole. Go back and reference the reviews for these nominee's throughout the year so you can see where we were with our predictions.

The 2nd part of our Eminem review gets into his battle with a few people that is burning up the internet (white on white crime) The Machine Gun Kelly battle that started waaaay back in 2014 or 2012 about something he said about his daughter. We continue with Em’s legacy and what is possibly his next move. Theeen we talk about what great kinda looks like in this era and what this year looks like with competitive releases.
So holy Sh**!! Did not expect this to come out this year like this. Sean and I go all in on the new release by Eminem that puts his target on reviewers, rappers and partners that he needs to let out some venom on. A throw back to the Shady days that I was hoping for last year instead of the Revival release.
We take the time to pay respect to Mac Miller with his untimely death. A little about his rap career, depression and substance abuse. RIP

We head out west and to Texas to review two new releases that go about their thing with contrasting styles. YG with the hard core west coast street life with a different swag to it. Then Travis Scott the producer extrondinaire giving us some reminiance of early Kanye productions. We dive in to get a feel of the AstroWorld and Stay dangerous releases and what both artist bring to the hip hop world.
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.
We jump into the 3rd installment of the Kanye production month with the release of "Kids see Ghost". The collaboration with Kanye and Kid Cudi on their 7 track release. Fans of Kid Cudi we absolutely have our opinion of what we think of the overall production.
As this is Kanye's month (June). We start with his solo release Ye! Even tho the album covers says,"I hate being bi-polar - its awesome". Somebody is still a fan and somebody is done with his sh*t!! But we both know that he is still one of the best producers out now. we break it down!!
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. Check it out
