So finally!! The offset solo release has arrived. To much fanfare and anticipation. Somebody is really excited and somebody is like…. Any who 1/3 features, very different feel and approach by the 3rd release by the 3rd member of the Migos trio.
We jump into Gunna’s 2nd major release on his own and actually coming out in competition with the OFFSET release the same day. We’ve seen him in so many other artist releases that we wondered how his solo would come off. With his success with Lil Baby, we had some skeptical views coming in.
We start the week out with a quick what’s on your mind and discuss the Grammy nominations and wins. We discuss our feelings about the industry as well as what we hope is a taking over of the music industry from Hip Hop to people of color. Then we get into our opinion on the GREAT J.Cole and the mission he is on. Quite an interesting discussion.
This week we jump into one of the old heads of the South rap Game Future. He’s hitting us at the beginning of the year after signing a 50 Mil contract with Epic, so you know we are going to get plenty more for the year. We review this 20 cut release.
So this interesting Eminem signed artist shows up and comes across as a very well seasoned story teller. We discuss his similarities to some well know artists as well as creating a very good West side sound and feel. And you know I’m loving the production.
I’m back to finish up my two part review of Dabrye. His latest sparked me to go back and listen to his past work then reintroduce you to his current release. As part of my producer feature on CarrWaxx. We Focus on the latest and greatest (a matter of taste of course) These producers are just unique and away from the mainstream that one would hear on streaming services. Here is Three/Three
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.

I ran into one of my favorite producers from the early 2000's and found that he released a current LP that was in line with his previous releases. Tadd Mullinixor Dabrye at that time was a talented producer from Michigan that did a lot of production with electronics and hip hop. To pay homage to his career and to highlight his new release. I wanted to review his previous releases. Here's part 1
Tadd Mullinixor Dabryeis an American musician from Ann Arbor, Michigan, United States, also known by the aliases James T. Cottonand SK-1. During his adolescent years, he grew up in Troy, MI. His Winking Makes a Face was the first album released by Ann Arbor’s Ghostly International. Parting with the IDMsound of Winking..., the first Dabrye album was 2001's One/Three, whose take on instrumental hip-hopparalleled the work of artists such as Prefuse 73.
