# Jay-Z Discography Nr. 3
# HOVA Style: Stage One

The random listen of Jay-Z discography move me to the last solo albums.

After the listen, I imagine a figure of Hova in a carribean island with a rum drink. At certain point, there are some locals producers that with soul and relaxed beats. Jigga decide, at this point, to speak introspective into his mind. This is a perfect metaphor of 4:44. This albums is already, near to classic. In a era when trap music is a top level, a classic hip hop ... read more

# Future Discography Nr. 1
# Sounds of 2020 Nr. 6

High off life is a repetitive Trap album with a lot of fillers. I admit that full listen this album once. I try to re-listen other times, but it is difficult for me. I don't like a lot of this album. Obviously, there are few lines interesting by Future, but the weak moments are a lots. I admit that like Life is Good., the structure is very interesting, but is different from the rest of the album that is much dark. I hope that, if I listen in ... read more

# Ariana Grande Discography Nr. 1
# Sounds of 2020 Nr. 5

Positions is a mix op R&B and pop album that has a lot of potential, but the result is a normal album for a light listen. The single positions has one of the best hook of the album, other songs are nothing particularly interesting. The Weeknd and Ty Dolla Sign are ok, Doja Cat has the best features for me. Overall, positions is not a worst album, but is average, with some good tracks and others weaks.

Accuracy: ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

# Logic Discography Nr. 2
# Sounds of 2020 Nr. 4

No pressure is the last album before the retirement by Logic. After a series of bad albums, he returns on a beautiful production of No I.D. The LP is linear and bars of Logic are good. The choice of the samples is great and the LP overcome the less presence of guests. No Pressure is the great conclusion to Logic carrier.

Accuracy: ⭐️⭐️⭐️

# Childish Gambino Discography Nr.2
# Sound of 2020 Nr. 3

3.15.20 is an enigmatic and minimalistic LP released by Childish Gambino. The album is composed by 12 tracks, each of it characterised by the time at which the song started, as a title (except two songs). This LP is a mix of sounds, with electronics on typical Awaken, My Love styles. Childish sings and not rap in all songs, except in Algorhythm, very influenced by Yeezus. It is not simple to listen this LP, but it is immersive and it is ... read more

# Eminem Discography Nr. 1
# Sound of 2020 Nr. 2

Eminem starts the year with a publication of a new interesting album. The concept of the LP is awesome, with the voice of Alfred Hitchcock as narrator, and Em' shows great picks, but there are also lowers. Epic moments are signed with Godzilla fast-rapping and Darkness. The production is ok, nothing of special. Guests do a good work, but Ed Sheeran with a pop hook is annoying. Overall, I know a lot of discography of Eminem. Today, is so far by ... read more
