Picture the whole hip hop genre as a successful restaurant with a wide variety of dishes of all cuisines. I’m talking Italian, Indian, Korean, Croatian… They have it all. Imagine now you’re going into the restaurant you can order whatever you want. You could go with the classic “Illmatic” Lasagna or maybe some “Madvillainy” Chicken Tikka Masala. But no for some reason you’re ordering unseasoned chicken with a side of mayonnaise “From a ... read more

I don’t even know how i ended up listening to The Smiths in the past couple of months. All i do know is whenever i feel too comfortable with a Smiths album playing, i have to follow it up with PEGGY’s “I Cannot Fucking Wait Till Morrissey Dies”. It cleanses my energy and gets rid of any bad karma I might’ve collected.

No but in all seriousness i love this record. I absolutely adore the overdramatic, melancholic delivery and lyrics of Morrissey. Backed with ... read more

Man i was really battling myself not to review this, but i gotta do it. What can i say, this was a complete letdown. I actually liked the instrumental and how it developed, it felt a bit futuristic and spacious. The chorus was surprisingly well done too, no complaints there. But man these verses were absolutely terrible. Push had wack bars that were straight up corny. A few examples: “Bring the cameraman, we can shoot our own Narcos”, “Summertime, Winterfell, i’m the ... read more

This is such a bizarre project for me, because I expected it to be a batch of throwaway tracks. But what it ends up being is a mixed bag, where the highs soar extremely high and the lows hit a record low. The production by Nicholas Craven is consistently great throughout, he did his thing. The problems lie in Droog and his choices for the features. I honestly feel defeated when i see Fahim has multiple guest spots on a tracklist. Both of Fahim’s features were mediocre and ended up holding ... read more

This is Billy’s first solo project since his 2019 record “Terror Management”. It was entirely produced by Preservation, the pair actually already worked together before. Preservation did some of the production, on his last solo record. Woods was also featured on Preservation’s 2020 compilation album “Eastern Medicine, Western Illness”. I heavily praised that record, so i was extremely excited to hear them collaborate again.

The first thing you’ll ... read more

Ya’ll already know i’m an absolute Quelle Chris fanboy, i’ve almost reviewed all of his projects that are listed on this site. He was also my last year’s most listened to artist on Apple Music. It’s been 2 years since his last record, and I’m absolutely ready.

This is the first single for his upcoming album called “DEATHFAME” that’s releasing on May the 13th. I honestly love this song, it sounds like a continuation of the sound that he and ... read more

I specialise in short hip hop reviews. Always relisten an album before reviewing. Everything 70+ is straight quality. Rating distribution is on the higher side, because I tend to review music, i at least somewhat like.
Mostly listen to hip hop and soul.
