Syd aims to continue her glorious musical run since The Internet 's 2015 Grammy-nominated album Ego Death, with the release of her solo project entitled Fin.
The buzz cut songstress truly hit the bullseye with her latest sonic compilation! The project was such an incredible body of work that it was difficult to choose only one song as my favorite cut. After a tedious process of elimination, Syd's scorching "Body" single came out on top.
I haven't done one of these in a long time but with the release of Skepta's stellar fourth studio album Konnichiwa, there was no other choice!
Kudos to the British lyrical assasin for being such a success all the while remaining true to his grime roots. His latest project can be played thoroughly without skipping any tracks but my favorite cut will have to be the joint he has with Pharrell called "Numbers". Not only does the song provide that nostalgic Skateboard P feeling, I am pleasantly surprised how Skepta flowed over a signature Pharrell beat.
Makre sure you cop the project on Itunes. For now, check out the jam below:
Somewhere in a New York City brickstone loft, Emily Oberg is grinning from ear to ear, wearing an imaginary crown of heart emojis while listening to Majid Jordan’s debut self titled studio album.
To keep it clean, I am also indulging in the electronic/r&b sounds of the Drake approved group. Their latest project is so immaculate, I can’t even choose which song is my favorite! Now I know I say this in every one of my FFC articles, but the situation at hand is really difficult as it is for 50 cent to stop trolling his enemies.
Since I do have to choose one tune (excluding the previously released singles), after much thought and consideration, My favorite cut from MJ's sonic body of work is "Love Is Always There".
Pusha T paved his very own cocaine lane in Rap, and quite honestly, most of us can agree he is the best dealer the game has to offer.
What sets the box-braided spitter apart is his uncanny ability to vividly paint a Warhol-ish scene utilizing narcotic bars. Trap music, encompasses the very same grimey tone of the drug world, but differs tremendously from Push’s intricacy to soulfully represent the life of a kingpin, and the reasons behind his pitches.
G.O.O.D Music’s new president delivers yet another epic solid body of work in Darkest Before Dawn. What also blew me away (I hope you’re catching my awesome yay references) is the Kid Art directed film, which compliments the album. In it, Pusha battles his demons to victoriously come out on top as the true king of his realm. Shout out to Singer/Actor Rotimi for an amazing perfomance.
As usual, it was extremely difficult to choose my favorite track on the project because each of them delivered potent lines. Due to M.P.A.'s emotional undertone, it wins the coveted title!
Last Friday, Jeremih surprised us all by releasing an incredible album after a 5 year hiatus!
The 'birthday sex' crooner has been featured on various artist's scorching singles but we haven't had the joy of indulging in a full project from him......until now. Titled Late Nights, Jeremih's (called him Jeremiah for way too long, I know you did too) third LP contains 15 bangers and features the hottest names in the game.
Once again, It was extremely difficult to pick out my favorite track, but since I already wrote about "Planes" and "Oui" when they initially released as singles, "Impatient" featuring Ty Dolla $ign takes the coveted prize.
Check it out below via Spotify if you haven't copped the album yet:
Logic just released his long-awaited sophomore studio album The Incredible Journeythat will truly leave you spacey from it's potency.
The 25 year old lyrical menace takes us on an intergalactic ride with this body of work, filled with an array of songs that actually have real meaning. It was brutally difficult to choose my favorite cut, but after long consideration "Never Been" came out on top.
Yes, I know tons of you were patiently waiting for me to state my favorite ballad from Bryson Tiller's latest eargasm of a project (pause) T R A P S O U L.
It's obvious that "Don't" is the most potent song, shit it might be one of the top 5 tracks that dropped this year, which is why it wasn't even an option when making my 'favorite cut' decision. All of the singles were amazing on the Louisville crooner's compilation, but the joint that'll take your Tiller & Chill session to new heights is "For However Long".
I know you're probably thinking "Exchange" should of been chosen but everyone indulged in it before the full project was released. I had to give the other tracks a fair chance to shine!
Good afternoon everyone, allow me to present the second installation of Frendy's Favorite Cut. To be honest, I was not familiar with the outstanding production duo Blended Babies, but after hearing their latest EP with singer Anderson.Paak I instantly became a devout listener to their awesome sounds.
Although all of the songs featured on this project are head bangers, the stand out cut in my opinion is "Make It Work" which features .Paak and one of Rap's most low-key lyricists Asher Roth.
Indulge below. If you like what you hear, show your support by purchasing the full collaborative EP on Itunes.
Welcome to a new segment on the blog which reveals my favorite album track from artists that recently released their project.
The very first honor goes to Mac Miller who dropped his long-awaited major label debut work of art GO:ODAM. My absolute favorite banger on there is his joint titled "Weekend" featuring bi-racial singing sensation Miguel.
