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.

A lot has been said about Desiigner over the past few months, some good, most negative. But let me tell why Desiigner isn't going anywhere anytime soon and is here for the long haul.
In this week's episode we talk about Spotify removing R. Kelly and XXXTENTACION from their playlists, the ongoing Kanye roller coaster, and Donald Glover's (aka Childish Gambino) turn as a SNL host, his mind blowing new video for "This Is America", and question whether he should be considered the greatest multi-talented artist we've ever seen. Then we end things by talking about a bunch of new albums to drop from Desiigner, Post Malone, Styles P, Rae Sremmurd, Janelle Monáe, Steve Angello, and BlocBoy JB. With Royce da 5'9", Janelle Monáe, and Steve Angello, in particular, taking their careers in new and exciting new directions with their most introspective albums yet.
In Volume 3 of Musicphiles we chop it up about a number of the latest projects and singles to drop. We give our thoughts about Drake's More Life and whether we think he's just riding waves at this point. Then we talk about Rather You Than Me by Rick Ross and the latest singles from Kendrick Lamar and what we think he may have in store. We end things by talking about Mike WiLL Made-It's latest, Kodak Black's surprisingly fire album, Tuxedo II, The Wild by Raekwon, and more.
We kick off the first volume of Compilation 2 of our Musicphiles podcast by taking a quick look back at some of our favorite projects to drop in 2016 and giving our overall rating for the year. Then we list our top 10 most anticipated albums of 2017 from artists like Andre 3000, Lorde, Kendrick Lamar, Japandroids, Drake, Kanye West, and many more. We finish things off with a discussion about the latest release from Run the Jewels, Tory Lanez, and others.
