Let’s face it: 2016 has been rough. But there’s light at the end of the tunnel: a brand new album from your favorite hip-hop duo and mine, Run the Jewels. They feel your frustrations, and they’ve got all the right words to express that “fuck this shit” feeling we’re all too familiar with right here.
Welp, it’s finally here. After two weeks of patiently waiting for Frank’s long-awaited album to end its Apple Music exclusivity, “Blonde” is finally available to us mere mortals who refuse to abandon Spotify. Listen below.
It’s a long, holiday weekend, meaning you’ve got plenty of time to go outside, spend time with family and friends…or sit in dark rooms and listen to great, new tunes. If you’re opting for the latter, we’ve got not one, not two…but THREE new albums hot off the presses for you.
For fans of electro-funky-awesomeness, Big Gigantic’s Brighter Future is for you. The album features collaborations with genre mainstays like GRiZ and hip-hop giants Logic, Waka Flocka, the up-and-comer Pell, and a lot more. This may favorite work from Gigantic yet, and that’s saying something. Awesome album from the first to the very last track.
For the hip-hop heads, we’ve got Vince Staples Prima Donna and Isaiah Rashad’s The Sun’s Tirade. Very different energy levels and vibes, but both great in their own rights. Fans won’t be disappointed.
When I first learned Dillon Francis and NGHTMRE were producing a track together, I was understandably stoked; Dillon puts on one of the best shows at any fest I’ve attended and NGHTMRE’s “Street” was my jam the second I heard it.
Unfortunately, when the original version of “Need Someone” dropped, I was a bit disappointed by what I considered a farely by-the-numbers single, if only because of my massive expectations.
But upon hearing the Champagne Drip Remix, I rescind all complaints. It does everything I hoped for from the original.
This hip-hop duo is in my personal lyricist Hall of Fame, so you know I’m excited for their latest release.
Introspective, moody, self-deprecating, and all the while, somehow still highly enjoyable listening. How they pull of such a delicate balancing act, I’ll never know. But I do know I’ll be playing this for a while to come.
