"Yeah Kanye changed his life but me? I'm still an oldschool Gemini"

Reflection on recent events made me want to slightly tweak this review I did last year:

I'm an Illustrator who graduated from University a few months ago. I finished my senior thesis, I made it. During my time there, I often found myself contemplating where would I going to go after I'm done with university. There's not an easy answer, to this question. Being 22 scares me. It forces me to really assess where I might find myself in 5 years. Who am I going to be? I am gonna be the same young ... read more

Aye. I found the motivation to push one more review out before I take a break from reviews.

This is a nice EP full of vibrant political tracks, from one of the increasingly exciting Maryland-based hip-hop collective.

The production of these songs here is rich with jazz and Neo-Soul influences. The lyricism from Kame, Ama, and Tyler on this record is just as consistent it touches on the grim reality of the systemic policing of the black body, the looming specter of white supremacy in ... read more

Special Review: "Thank You, Kevin"

I sometimes reflect on one of Dr. Cornel West’s most well-known lines with great fondness:

“I am who I am because somebody loved me.”

I related to this on a deep level.

Growing up in a black religious household shaped me a lot from a kid to an adult. It’s a place that I’ve long considered home. I was there since I was a baby, and in this span of time, I’m lucky to say that I was a child that was shaped by ... read more

This is immensely vapid. There really isn't anything worthwhile to say here.

P.S. Seasons is what happens when you listen to Frank Ocean once.

Hi fleetwoodgrips, I’m making a list about album/s that changed AOTY users music tastes, if u have any albums that introduced u to new genres or shook up the music u listen to or something like that, i’d love to know :))

Hey, I hope you're doing well.

I'm making a list where, judging by AOTY users' individual top ten albums, I'm compiling a ranked community top 100. I'd love it if you could contribute by just replying with your top ten ranked from 1-10; I'm totally fine with being redirected to a ranked favourites list of sorts, if that's what you'd prefer.

Thanks so much for taking the time to read this and replying, if you do

I’ll put them both in. 2very different picks, I appreciate that. Another thing we have Wayne to thank for is helping boost Nicki Minaj into the spotlight, influential in ways more than 1 lmao. I plan on putting the list out when I reach 100 followers but if that doesn’t happen soon I’ll just put it out anyway, thanks for contributing :)

Hey FleetwoodGrips, I’m making a list named AOTY’s favorite concerts and I would love if you could participate in it!

If you want to participate in the list, you need to include the name of the artist, album toured
(or your favorite album of theirs if it was not a specific record being toured), and sum up your experiences in a few sentences.

I hope you have a great day, and thank you for considering.


22-year-old black bisexual autistic dude (He/Him), Peak Religious Socialist, Visual Artist & Illustrator (Parsons School of Design Alumni) & philosophy/theology hoe who loves music and likes talking about music. There are those rare moments where I might reference philosophy in my review, but not often. These are more casual thoughts. Planning on getting my Masters/MFA next year.

May also occasionally shitpost here or there.

These are reviews that I find has a bit more depth than my usual reviews. I usually tend to come off a bit more nerdy in some of these. I also tend to get a bit more emotional in some of these as ...
