So, here's what happened within the past week (7/31 - 8/6).
Just last week, Rae Sremmurd teased a new single and that SremmLife 3 would be coming out any day now. Now the duo has released the leading single off the album, “Perplexing Pegasus.” The track is nothing short of a high energy banger, worth a listen.
Although he's dropped music in between projects, Wins and Losses is Meek Mill's first studio album in two years since his last 2015 Dreams Worth More Than Money. That album did very well, extremely well - debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in its first week.
I know I've been down and out the past few weeks - blame Hov for that - I missed some releases that came out, but the series is back. Tomorrow I'll be covering the Billboard updates on last week's release of Tyler the Creator's Flower Boy and Meek Mill's Wins and Losses. Both albums are amazing and are reported to be neck and neck with sales projections. Well, we'll see how they'll do.
Kung Fu Kenny never seems to disappoint his fans. He recently dropped the fourth offering from DAMN, an epic mind-fuck of a visual for "Loyalty." But before we talk about "Loyalty," let's rewind.
I'll admit I was both excited and nervous to write this review. I've given quick verbal reviews for people who've asked but it’s been hard for me to sit down and write. For me, it’s overwhelming. Not only is this Jay-Z’s 13th album, but there’s just so much to unpack. The album covers literally (yeah, I’m from Jersey) everything. I can’t mess this up, but I put my nerves to the side and decided to do it. I had to formally review the album, how can I not? So I lived with the album, more so than any other project.
My Bones Hurt.
They cry for me.
They ache in the absence of contentment.
In the abandonment of dreams.
In the loss of imagination.
