IMPORTANT: Social media is easy and accessible to look at and build opinions off of, but don’t forget to look at real medical sites like ouuuu here, this one for facts on the COVID-19 vaccine.

Okay I know that there is a lot of confusion and mistrust about the COVID-19 vaccine, even amongst my own friends, so in a change of pace, I decided that I would write about something other than music that hopefully might help my friends and family members as well as anyone else decide if they want to get vaccinated or not. If you know me…


Album Cover for “JORDI”

Right now the current state of hip-hop has never been better, as over the past two weeks big names have been dropping new albums and singles including but not limited to, Migos, Polo G, Gucci Mane, Doja Cat and most recently Tyler the Creator. In the mix of hip-hop that has become unleashed, it can be hard to catch up on top releases from outside the hip-hop pool. …


(From left to right: Offset, Quavo and Takeoff)

Georgia-based rap group Migos, composing of the rappers Quavo, Offset and Takeoff dropped their hotly anticipated fourth studio album “Culture III” which also is supposed to serve as the conclusion to the Culture saga that their last two studio albums embarked on. Culture III is a seventy five minutes and features other rappers such as Drake, Cardi B, Future, Polo G (who also had an album drop this past Friday) and Juice WRLD (RIP). Culture III was alluded to as far back as 2018, when Culture II dropped. …


I didn't know much about DMX, but my father was and still is a big fan of his. Growing up in Brooklyn, my dad rocked in the same environment as a lot of the hip-hop gurus of today. My dad had the pleasure to rock with DMX’s entourage for a couple of shows and even had some personal conversations with the man himself. It also goes without saying that thanks to my pops (I never call him that by the way), I learned and came to appreciate almost every detail about East Coast rap. …


American musical duo twenty one pilots consisting of lead vocalist Tyler Joseph and drummer Josh Dun, released their sixth studio album, Scaled and Icy this past Friday. Sitting at thirty eight minutes, Scaled and Icy is a minute shorter and has no features compared to the last album I reviewed.

The Contrast: Trench vs. Scaled and Icy

Scaled and Icy has a more shiny and optimistic disposition in the twenty one pilots discography especially compared to the duos darker last studio album Trench; it would even be fair to say the difference between Trench and Scaled and Icy is like…


Jermaine Cole otherwise known by his stage name, J. Cole, dropped his sixth studio album “The Off-Season” this past Friday, a project that he has hinted about dropping as far back as 2018, the same year he dropped his fifth studio album, “KOD”. The hotly anticipated album runs a smooth thirty-nine minutes and actually features artists such as 21 Savage, Lil Baby, Bas and 6LACK which impressively makes “The Off-Season” the first J. Cole album to have features since 2013’s “Born Sinner”. The name of the album is derived as a play on the sports term “off-season” which is a…


I love my mom.

I know that’s a boring cliché to start this off with, but that doesn’t make the sentence any less true. I truly do love my mom with all my heart. She has provided for me, reassured me when I felt unsure, been my solid foundation when everything seemed to sink around me, and been my ultimate advisor through this thing that we call life. But the following are things I believe one would expect their mom to be, if they had a healthy relationship with their mother. …


Spaceman Cover Art

Back in March, singer/songwriter Nick Jonas released his third studio album, “Spaceman” complete with no features to become the music artists’ first solo album since 2016’s “Last Year Was Complicated”. This is also Nick’s first album to drop since reuniting with his brothers to drop the boy bands’ first album in years. In creating the album Nick Jonas told the folks over at Apple Music that he really locked in on four themes: distance, indulgence, euphoria and commitment. He also wanted to create an album that was one seamless journey where each song flowed into the next, something that indeed…

It was reported that Zayn had, “Total creative reign on his third album", and that he’s…


Marshall Mathers or “Eminem” surprised his fans this past Sunday by dropping a brand new album, “Music To Be Murdered By — Side B”, that (as expected) serves as a sort of part B to his last most recent released album “Music To Be Murdered By”, which was released earlier this year on January 17th. ‘Music To Be Murdered By — Side B” also includes all the songs from “Music To Be Murdered By”, to further reinforce the connection between both albums. Prior to the albums release, its existence was speculated and confirmed by fans when this teaser trailer dropped…
