*Warning, long post, sharing my feelings about Rihanna, but good read I promise*
I remember it like it was yesterday. It was actually
last week (I began writing this a long time ago and scrapped it, then picked it back up and finished it) going on 5 months ago . After MUCH anticipation, Rihanna released her eighth and long-awaited album, ‘ANTI’. I’m going to go back a little, lay the foundation, which will then lead to a review of the album. Continue reading Unbiased Review: Rihanna- ‘ANTI’
Drake had a special on Apple Music this past Saturday where he released more new music. He released his remix to “One Dance”, this time featuring Justin Bieber, then he dropped his new song with Gucci Mane called “Back on Road”. Then, to keep the time and location theme going for a few of his other songs (9AM in Dallas, 6PM in New York, 5AM in Toronto), Drake releases “4PM in Calabasas”. Calabasas is the current location of Drake’s home in Los Angeles, so it was only a matter of time before he named a song after his LA residence. Continue reading NEW SONG: Drake- “4PM in Calabasas”
“I can’t go a day if I don’t talk to my baby, I went to my hood all my friends think I made it, I talk to my fam, man my momma think I’m famous…”
Best song on the mixtape, currently most-listened to song in my iTunes library. Lil Uzi Vert finishes off his already great 9-song mixtape, Lil Uzi Vert vs. The World, with the best song I’ve heard in awhile, “Scott and Ramona”. Uzi loves anime, his girlfriend, and his money, as he makes proclamations to each multiple times in the song. The song speaks for itself, enjoy.
Also, check out the mixtape, Lil Uzi Vert vs The World, if you haven’t already.
For the avid Mac Miller fans out there, Best Day Ever is being re-released as an album. Many believe Best Day Ever was Mac’s initial exposure to the mainstream and positioned him for future rap success. As a celebration of the mixtape’s five-year anniversary, Rostrum Records has decided to release the mixtape in stores, as vinyls, on streaming services, etc. Continue reading “Best Day Ever” being re-issued as an album
Lil Uzi Vert has been making the internet keep up with his new releases. Lil Uzi has dropped a few songs here and there since the release of his mixtape, Lil Uzi Vert vs. The World, in April. LUV vs The World is my favorite mixtape so far this year, and it’s really not even close. Uzi has done some features for some big name rappers in the game, but he makes sure to maintain his focus on his own music.
“$UB ZERO” is a song Uzi randomly dropped on Soundcloud, which he does with all of his music. The songs begins with the Maaly Raw intro, a producer Uzi works with very often, then the beat drops. Uzi is pretty chill on this one, resorting to his off-the-wall flows only when necessary. Uzi will probably add this song to his set-list for his upcoming tour this June. Not one of my favorites from Uzi but it’s most definitely a song I will play on repeat in the car. Uzi hasn’t disappointed his fans yet and I think he knows that. I am highly anticipating the debut album.
I might review LUV vs The World, idk yet, but links below! Continue reading NEW SONG: Lil Uzi Vert “$UB ZERO”
I came up with the idea to review albums starting with albums from 1 year ago and continue on until whenever I feel I’m done with reviewing albums. The albums are random choices, ones that I enjoyed or albums I just wanted to check out.
The first album I decided to review was released on January 13, 2015. It is an album that I highly anticipated prior to its release and have enjoyed since its debut. That album is Reality Show by Jazmine Sullivan.

This blog will also feature videos that I like, whether they be new or old videos. Just sharing good content.
Ariana Grande recently released her third album, Dangerous Woman. Her second single off the album is a song called “Into You”, which I hope turns into a number one soon. She released the video to the song a few days ago and it features male model Don Benjamin. Many speculate that the guy Ariana is wrapped in arms with on the red carpet is Big Sean. It makes kinda sense but I don’t really read into stuff like that. Anyways, video is dope, probably her best video yet. I’m warming up to her. But yeah, video below.
