‘Top’, in it’s horrid 21 song, hour-long runtime is an album with two faces. The first face is melodic. Youngboy Never Broke Again, for all the bravado is a morose artist, his melodies are filled with lines of regret, drug addiction and paranoia but they’re stifled by everything around them. With slow, sorrowful acoustic guitars accompanied by trap high hats and 808’s the melodic face isn’t bad per se, it’s just painfully derivative. Songs like Drug ... read more

It’s seems as though there is some sort of 80’s synth/new wave revivalism going on in pop and David Guetta and Sia want in. Revivalism is a double edged sword, done right, it’s a tour around a sound we’re all familiar with but with new frills. Done wrong, it’s a trek down well tread paths. Unfortunately Guetta and Sia have embarked on the latter. While Let’s Love executes 80’s synth wave well it’s painfully iterative of songs 40 years before it. ... read more

It’s rare that you flip a classic and it comes out this good. Interpolating Busta Rhymes’ hook on ‘I Know What You Want’ for ‘I Got You’ is a shining success.

The warm strings, watery synths and understated high hats also give ‘I Got You’ a carefree, lovestuck feel that it’s inspiration never had. And although ... read more

I have to hand it to Lil Tecca he has an excellent ear for production. Over a dancehall beat with drum line snares and patient steel drums backed with anticipating 808’s Tecca raps about his come up and people’s switch ups. Lil Tecca’s success is largely garnered from being himself and although it hasn’t changed him it’s changed the perception of him to the people around him and it “got me really fucked up.” The hook is crisp and catchy, the verses are ... read more

What are we rapping about again?

After ten years in the game you’d think Big Sean’s rapping would be in pristine condition. He still has a grand mastery of flows but when it comes to putting together cogent verses, he’s remiss on Detroit 2. Sean has a lot of ideas and things to say but they’re only half baked. Lines about depression, disease and suicide live as two or three-line missives in scatterbrained bars. Verses are just a vessel to progress the song irreverent of ... read more
