 - Sometimes I Might Be Introvert

This is the saddest 9 I've ever given, because this could've been a masterpiece but SIMBI's very few faults mean that it's a little more scattered than other conscious hip hop records like TPAB. But still, Simz continues to bring something new to the table, and consistently proves that she's probably one of the only good British rappers going who hasn't plunged into the mediocre pool of grime or trap (apart from one song).

The singles were what hyped me up immensely for this album. Over a ... read more

Holy fuck who taught Steve Lacy how to make a cohesive project after all these years.

After bringing the mid to late 2010's popular neo-soul scene to its knees with hits like Dark Red and C U Girl, Steve Lacy has underperformed massively when it comes to delivering LP's and EP's. But that is until Gemini Rights, where Steve finally acts like an artist and not just a playful bedroom-stricken teen toying with demos and ideas. Every song feels complete and polished (even the few that aren't as ... read more
