Weekly Hip-Hop/R&B Review (3/25-4/1)

This week features more rhymes than a Dr. Suess book. Let’s get right into it.

T.I. drops another new song

“Not My Fault” is a chill song that features a soothing hook and a couple verses from T.I. and Verse Simmons.

Ty Dolla $ign and Akon is the collab you need to hear

This song is so dope. Akon kills the hook, as he usually does, and Ty Dolla does his damn thing over this smooth beat. Another super chill song.

Kudi is back to his old self on “The Frequency”

There really isn’t much better than hearing Kid Cudi hum over a beat. It is so soothing to hear. This song features that Man on the Moon style vibe, which is a good sign for any fan of Cudi.

Put on your Sunday best for CeeLo’s new song

CeeLo keeping the smooth theme going hear with another chill song. Love the horns on this track along with the positive message.

Big Sean with a big week

Sean blessed his fan base with this new track “Get My Shit Together” which features Sean’s typical cleverness over a piano-lead beat. In addition, he dropped a joint album with Jhene Aiko entitled “TWENTY88” which you can find online.

Absolute heater from Big K.R.I.T.

Big K.R.I.T. has to be one of the most underrated rappers in the game right now. He is not only a great rapper, he is a great producer as well. “So Bad” is evidence of both.

This remix is good

The original is good enough but add Chris Brown on the chorus and a verse from him and you get gold.

Royce Da 5’9 drops “Trust the Shooter” mixtape

Be careful playing this because it is absolute heat. Royce’s lyrical ability is something special and it is on full display on every track.

dvsn releases new album

I’ve heard a few tracks of this so far and am thoroughly impressed. Dvsn is definitely an artist to watch out for.

Lupe kills the “Panda” beat

Lupe doing what Lupe does. Wordplay for days on this one.

Bryson Tiller + The Weeknd = dream come true

The Weeknd jumps on Bryson Tiller’s “Rambo” and absolutely crushes it. I love the music these two guys put out. Hopefully this is a sign that we will get a collaboration in the future.

Snakehips and Anderson Paak team up for a dope new single

Like I said last week, everything Anderon Paak touches is amazing. This song is no exception. I’ll be jamming to this for the foreseeable future.

Kanye West gives us Saint Pablo

This is fucking great. Kanye can be an asshole, but he makes some pretty damn good music. Long live Saint Pablo.

The world is yours

A$AP Ferg proves he can make music that isn’t a club banger. “The World is Mine” features Big Sean and will be on Ferg’s upcoming album, which looks like it’s going to be very good.

Alright people, that’s just about it. Drake dropped two new tracks this week that I couldn’t post but they were nothing special. That said, Views is approaching so that is exciting. G-Eazy also released a remix of “Order More” featuring Yo Gotti and Lil’ Wayne if that tickles your fancy. That’s all I can think of. Enjoy
