REVIEW: Atlanta S2E1 is nothing new–– and that’s a good thing.

Atlanta S2E1 is nothing new–– and that’s a good thing… for now at least. This is a first impressions review of the Atlanta S2 premiere. A few minutes ago, I finished watching Atlanta’s first episode of its second season. What I thought about it? Well, it wasn’t shockingly bad or shockingly good, it’s what you’d expect, but let’s talk about it anyways. Atlanta is an … Continue reading REVIEW: Atlanta S2E1 is nothing new–– and that’s a good thing.

Aminé’s Good For You – A Weird Album by a Weird Dude

2017 XXL Freshman Aminé seems to be a cool but super nerdy dude. His bars are clever, fun, and new in a way that makes his music incredibly charming, and it’s readily apparent that behind the joking is a very intelligent young artist. A perfect example of his who he is, as far as the world’s seen thus far in his short career, is his … Continue reading Aminé’s Good For You – A Weird Album by a Weird Dude

Why In Search Of Did More for me than Illmatic

  2002 seems to have been a weird time (I was only a year old, but I’m making assumptions based on all the pictures of oversized t-shirts I’ve seen).

Is Lorde’s New Album, Melodrama, as fly as her debut album?

I really liked Pure Heroin. It was a bit of a change of pace from what I normally listen to, but it was an interesting album and the music was really cool. The song “royals” was the smash hit single, and it wasn’t even the best song of the album.I especially enjoyed the thing she did on songs like “the Love Club” and “Tennis Court” … Continue reading Is Lorde’s New Album, Melodrama, as fly as her debut album?

Pretty Girls Like Trap Music – a Review

NEW 2 CHAINZ!!!! As you should already know, there’s a new 2 Chainz Album out. That’s right, an album of banger after banger by the star of the greatest web series of all time. Pretty exciting, isn’t it? This album is classic 2 Chainz, but it also has some moments that are more serious than maybe you’d expect. Lyrically, sure, but the beats are also … Continue reading Pretty Girls Like Trap Music – a Review

Why Endless/Blonde is the Best Album of 2016 – a Review

It’s an amazing double-header of a project. Here’s why. Frocean fans have spent four years not-so-patiently waiting for new music from the Grammy award winning artist. On July, 417th, 2015 Ocean finally released Endless. Endless first. On the “Endless” live stream, instrumentals faded in and out as time passed, but there was a lot more to be desired. Watching it began to feel as pointless as checking Boys Don’t … Continue reading Why Endless/Blonde is the Best Album of 2016 – a Review
