XXL Freshman Class

Hip Hop Music R&B Review

XXL Freshman Class

The XXL Freshman class has been generating  some controversy over the past couple of years. With names like Tekashi 69, Trippie Redd, Lil Pump and Blocboy JB in the news it's hard to overlook some of these artists. Whether it's negative or positive any publicity is good publicity when it comes to these new rappers. Over time many people forget who some of these artists are after their XXL debut and many others just fall off the face of the earth.There is an argument that the 2014 class might have be one of the most talented classes of all time...

Ella Mai: Ready - EP Review

Ella Mai: Ready - EP Review

Ella Mai has been making headlines with her hit single Boo’d up. It’s early to call it, but I’m not hesitant to say that this song is an instant classic. Her charismatic melodies and harmonies are what make this single such a hit. The melody is so catchy yet, mesmerizing to the ears. Just the way the song enters in the beginning is so smooth. The 90’s piano with the Drake bass lines can spar with the best of instrumentals and are so memorable. The slight synths give you such a vibe  when they fall in the background of the...

Pusha T: Daytona - Album Review

If you are a lyric head and seek bars, look no further than Daytona. Pusha T doesn't deliver legendary hard-hitting punch lines like your Cassidy, Ludacris or Jadakiss but there is no denying his lyricism. His off-the-mainstream flow resembles that of an old school rapper but his team of producers have seemed to find a happy medium within the final compositions.There has been much controversy over his track titled Infrared where he takes shots at the infamous Drake. Drake is often known in rap battles to end careers based on his recent beef with Meek Mill and Common. While those...

Kanye West: Ye - Album Review

    I’ve had a chance to listen to the Kanye West’s brand new album titled Ye (Love Everybody). It’s been kind of a roller coaster with Kanye West’s recent rants and antics on social media and on social platforms. There were rumors that Kanye was locked away in a residence somewhere in Wyoming. Well the rumors were proven to be true when he hosted a listening party the night before releasing his highly anticipated/criticized album Ye on all platforms (Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal, and YouTube). Kanye has recently been abandoned by the majority of the black community after recent...

Drake: More Life - Album Review

I can't decide if I like this playlist or not to say I love this project due to the fact that Drake has a notorious past of mimicking styles, flows and songs of other artists in both past and present . Drake has been sitting on the success of views for awhile. He comes and delivers a change up in style that goes along the lines of "Controlla" and "Fake Love" featuring the memorable vocal harmonies of drake. While he doesn't lack production quality from hit producers like 40 and Boi-1da, he brought back producers from his debut album "Comeback...
