Ever since I discovered AOTY, I loved to scroll through the new releases tab. Not on music release Friday, but on other days. There's always something great to discover on there, like the recent Asher Gamedze EP which I really enjoyed. So when I was scrolling through this tab today, the cover of this album really spoke to me, so I decided to look it up. And look at that, this project is really great. I really love this website.

Deante' Hitchcock comes through with an inconsistent yet impressive debut album. This last year has been BIG for Deante', from his appearance on the "Revenge Of The Dreamers" album to joining JID on tour. Plus, getting a real hit with a H.E.R feature on his track, "Feelings".
