Following up our in depth 'Top 20 Albums of the Year...So Far' podcast, here is the official full list in all it's glory without all the other BS (but you should really get into all the other BS, it's good BS).
We are back and we are in the full blown midst of Yeezy season. But before we get into the new albums we discuss Drake apparently wanting no more smoke with Pusha T, then we get to 'ye' and 'Kids See Ghosts' and discuss where they stack up to everything Kanye's had a hand in putting out thus far. Specifically if 'ye' is his worst album yet? We give our expectations for the Nas album which had still yet to drop, talk about Jay Rock's best album yet full of bangers, and get hype over Jorja Smith's incredible debut. Check the full episode out above and tell us your thoughts, comments, and questions about the topics in the episode.

Passion, Pain, & Demon Slayin' is a very welcome return to form for Kid Cudi. It's full of all those big spacey synths, infectious bounces, atmospheric vibes, and irresistible melodies we've come to expect, while still managing to sound fresh and new. He's come to reclaim his throne as the vibe King.
We talk about the recently announced Grammy nominations and place our bets on who will be the big winners of the night. We also discuss and rate the latest albums from J. Cole (4 Your Eyez Only), Ab-Soul (Do What Thou Wilt.), KiD CuDi (Passion, Pain, & Demon Slayin'), The Weeknd (Starboy), A Tribe Called Quest (We Got It From Here... Thank You 4 Your Service), and more.
We're back with Volume 3 of our Musicphiles podcast and we talk about the recent return of Frank Ocean, Drake taking more shots, his average sounding new releases, and current music we're listening to. Check out the full episode and you can see the time-stamps for the various topics on the full post.

'Kids See Ghosts' is almost impossible to categorize the sound they've crafted but it's wholly their own it's got some very strong vibes. Not quite on Daytona levels, but definitely better than Kanye's own offering out of the bunch.
