Beats Per Minute

For those in a rut over the seemingly endless absence of Kendrick Lamar, you need look no further for boundlessly creative and irresistibly unique hip hop than GUMBO’!.

The Needle Drop

As its title suggests, GUMBO'! is a viscous and dreamy homage to various strains of southern hip hop whose charm is undeniable.

Pink Siifu is hands down one of the most versatile rappers of our generation, and it sucks on how this went under the radar for so many people.

I feel like with every new LP from Pink Siifu, he does something completely different and out of left field. You know what the entire album sounds like to me?
