Weekly Hip-Hop/R&B Review (4/15-4/22)


The Pens are one step closer to bringing home the Cup and it’s got me all giddy. Music time:

Big K.R.I.T. remixes Kanye’s “30 Hours”

Big K.R.I.T. remains one of the most slept on artists out there right now. He stays bringing that southern flavor to every track. “$30” is a very, very good remix to an already very, very good song.

4/20 brings some new weed smoking anthems

Dizzy Wright is a very good artist. If you don’t listen to him already, I suggest getting on that. He’s been known to smoke Satan’s salad every now and then and gives the fans a new song to commemorate the big day. Even if you’re like me and don’t indulge, this song is still worth checking out.

Ariana Grande recruits Lil Wayne for new single of upcoming album

There are a lot of dope features on Grande’s upcoming album, “Dangerous Woman.” Lil Wayne was one of my most anticipated and turns out I didn’t have to wait too long. Solid verse from Wayne and Ariana doing her thing throughout earns this song a thumbs up from me.

Harlem goes hard

Jim Jones and A$AP Ferg go in on this banging beat. Turn the volume up all the way and bump this shit.

More 4/20 music courtesy of Snoop Dogg

Snoop dropping a song that’s perfect for a chill smoke sesh? Yeah, could’ve seen that coming. Good to see Snoop is cooking up some good music again.

Another song about getting high

Mac Miller and Dave East link up to create another really chill song this week. They both deliver good verses over the Cardo produced track.

This instrumental is FIRE

I don’t care if you don’t listen to a word of this song but you need to throw on some headphones and take in this beat. The legendary Pete Rock produces a gem featuring some slick horns (which I love).

No list is truly complete without some Migos

Ever been at a party or bar or [random place here] and there’s a ton of attractive ladies around but you don’t say sum? Yeah, me either,  I always talk to girls but if you don’t just listen to this song for some inspiration.

New Bankroll Mafia album

I’ve only heard a couple songs off the project but as a huge fan of T.I., I’m confident I’ll enjoy this. There’s definitely a few bangers in here.

“Always Strive and Prosper” does not disappoint

A$AP Ferg’s new album is well worth the wait. The singles he dropped in advance were all great and the rest of the album holds up as well. “Swipe Life,” “Beautiful People,” and “I Love You” are all must hear songs.

Enjoy this week’s helping of hip-hop and R&B, kids.
