About
Avid listener/appreciator of hip hop and rock and roll. Ratings are based on how influential, or high achieving an album is. I do my best to not look at any critique or response to albums before I assign a corresponding score.

I don't listen to many projects from artists that I don't like, so my ratings may be slightly high; but in general 50/100 is average, and every other score is relative to that.

Favorite Artists:
The Roots
Kanye West
Bruce Springsteen
Jimi Hendrix
The Beatles
