FROM DREAMVILLE: ARI LENNOX RELEASES SHEA BUTTER BABY Dreamville songstress, Ari Lennox, has dropped her debut album, Shea Butter Baby. The project is a mixture of modern and old school, along with some tracks being soulful and others nice and current with 808s and trap hi-hats.

Logic & Eminem Collab There was no escaping the hype of Logic and Eminem’s first track together, “Homicide.” While clearly the track is a jerk-fest for White suburban kids who like “real rap,” the track panned out better than anticipated. Neither artist come through with extremely corny punchlines, and although the fast flows is old […]

Rich The Kid Releases The World Is Yours 2 Not taking anytime off, Rich The Kid delivers the sequel to last year’s The World Is Yours. The World Is Yours 2 is not much of an abandonment of the NY born ATL based artist.

DESTO DUBB’S “BANK TELLER” This week, Desto Dubb enlisted the help of Lil Uzi Vert, 03 Greedo, Smokepurpp, and Lil Pump in “Bank Teller.” Before further diving into the track, the idea of bringing these artists all on one track is nuts. If you enjoy the wave, it’s a track for you. The flaw with […]

From Sinatra to Tarantino: The Desecration of Logic

From Sinatra to Tarantino: The Desecration of Logic

When Logic opens his album (or mixtape, I can’t tell the difference anymore) with a Ricky and Morty skit, it’s apparent that he’s only gonna cater to his die-hard fanbase at this point. While I always prefer risks, I can’t say there’s anything wrong with appealing to your core audience. Yet, as his career continues […]
