Sooo I guess soundcloud rap is a full blown thing these days, and the number of new ‘lils’ and their like popping up everyday is practically impossible to keep up. However, Trippie Redd is a name I’ve been familiar with over the past year or so, although that familiarity was due to everything but his music. So after finally seeing what he has to offer besides f*ckery on his full length project, LIFE’S A TRIP, I’ll give him credit for being better than I expected. Like most of these newer artists out these days he tries to take a more genre-less approach to his music, taking a little something from numerous genres – particularly the more emo phase of rock. Those moments are some of my least favorite moments on the project though as he comes off as more whiny than anything, but there is some genuinely compelling stuff here that shows there’s more to him than meets the eye. That soundcloud sound still isn’t my forte but LIFE’S A TRIP is one of the better offering out of this wave.
Travis Scott finally put together all of the pieces of his immense talent and crafted his most realized project yet. 'ASTROWORLD' is a complete experience from front to back that transports you to a world all of Scott's own making, and I don't plan on leaving anytime soon.Read full review
Although it's titled Life of Desiigner, we don't learn much about him as a person but we do get a much better feel for who he is as his own musical entity. None of the seven songs here are as good as even the loosies he's released over the past year but their even to keep me interested in a proper debut.Read full review
And you sleep on me until you can’t no more And don’t fake on me and try to play the boy I don’t know why I feel like nobody loves me Or why they feel like my intention’s something ugly Or why I feel like everyone needs something from me
