Album Review | The Weeknd – ‘Kiss Land’

Artist: The Weeknd (@TheWeeknd) Album:  ‘Kiss Land' Label: XO/ Republic Records Release Date:  September 10, 2013 Do you have time to get lost in the world of The Weeknd because that's exactly what will happen when you push play on this album. I can easily have this on replay all day. There's just something about his voice that hypnotizes you no matter how hard you try to fight it. What's even crazier is that even though he may sing in a soft melodic fashion, he's some kind of sex...

Album Review | Ariana Grande – ‘Yours Truly’

Artist: Ariana Grande (@ArianaGrande) Album:  ‘Yours Truly’ Label: Republic Records Release Date:  September 2, 2013 A project that’s been in the works since 2001, Ariana Grande’s debut album, ‘Yours Truly’, is here and I personally love it. She’s a young fresh pretty face and she’s been referred to as the mini Mariah Carey of her time. Fun fact: She’s from Boca Raton, Florida. The album is a well orchestrated introduction to the budding songstress with a lot of...

Album Review | @BigBoi – ‘Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors’

When you think of southern hip hop OGs, Big Boi is definitely one of the genre's finest. We've been fans of this Atlanta playa since his days as one half of the duo Outkast. Since then, his track record proves that he continuously grows as an artist, pushing away limitations that most artists would be afraid to challenge and never compromises his creativity by being anybody but himself. In this second studio album, 'Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors', Big Boi showcases his eccentricity that...

Young McFly & Jon The Barber – ‘Throw Up Music Vol. 1′ [Mixtape]

@JonTheBarber @YoungMcFly drop a six track mixtape titled Throw Up Music Volume 1.  Had to chuckle at the creativity behind this. Tracks designed to make you say "These songs are so great i just might have to THROW UP". That feel good classic hip hop music that makes you want to cruise through the city with the windows down soaking it all in. I'm going to warn you though, if you have a weak stomach to the sounds of throw up, brace yourself. LOL. My favorite on the tape has to be "Another...

Raheem Devaughn – ‘Destination: Loveland’ [Mixtape]

@Raheem_Devaughn hosted by @SnoopDogg. Just what you need on Valentine's Day. A smooth soundtrack to pop in to go to Destination: Loveland. Love Raheem Devaughn's voice.  I wish they would have made Snoop Dogg's intro smoother instead of a recording from an answering machine. What happened to the sensual seduction? Features include Marsha Ambrosius, Dwele, James Blake, Dr Maya Angelou, and Phil Ade. Presented by 368 Music Group and Raheem Devaughn himself. This mixtape definitely has replay...
