ALBUM REVIEW: RIHANNA – ANTI

Riri finally released her long awaited 8th album ,ANTI. I’ve been a huge fan of hers since forever and I was anticipating for this LP just like the rest of the #RihannaNAVY.  She kept teasing us with non album singles which got increasingly bold.After “Bitch Better Have My Money” , I truly expected this album to be extremely bold, and as dauntless as her current image.

ALBUM REVIEW : RAURY – ALL WE NEED

When I first listened to Raury’s debut mixtape “Indigo Child” I thought it was a step too far. The mixtape combined hip hop with elements of folk, indie , soul and rock. With songs like “The Devil’s Whisper” and “Cigarette Song” , the Atlanta native got a lot of hype which earned him a spot on the XXL freshmen list. Let’s just say I’m not easily impressed, and I’ve been sleepin’ on him ever since but his latest project might have just changed my mind.

ALBUM REVIEW: LANA DEL REY – HONEYMOON

 

You know it still feels like “Ultraviolence” was released a week ago, it still sounds so fresh every time I listen to it and yet Lana is already back with a new album. I wasn’t at all ready for this. When she randomly released the title track “Honeymoon” I didn’t really know what to expect of the entire album to come.

MARVEL X HIP HOP

From De La Soul to A.S.A.P Rocky, Marvel will release a series of over 50 different covers paying tribute to  various classic and contemporary rap albums. I’m a HUGE comic book fan and a hip hop head so when I saw these covers I literally spazzed out. It’s so cool to see the two worlds come together so seamlessly. “For years, Marvel Comics and hip-hop culture have been engaged in an ongoing dialogue,”  Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso said in press release. “Beginning this October, we will shine a spotlight on relationship between those two unique forces.”  Continue reading

Album Review: Sam Smith- IN THE LONELY HOUR

You might know him as the British lad that lent his soulful vocals to Disclosure’s hit song “Latch.” He’s the rising R & B star that’s taking the world by storm with his sincere and heartfelt music. He later appeared in Naughty Boy’s smash hit “La La” before ambushing us with “In the Lonely Hour” , his debut album, which is supposedly a love letter to a man who never returned Sam’s feelings. Yes, he’s gay.

E.P MAGIC

So lately I’ve been listening to A LOT of amazing music and then I realized most of it was from E.P’s. For those who might not know and E.P(short for Extended Play) is a musical recording that contains for than one single but it’s too short to qualify as a full studio album.

I’m going to review some of the best E.Ps I’ve listened to recently because I think you should all listen to this music which I think is exceptionally good.
