Travis Scott - ASTROWORLD | Reactions | LIVING LIFE FEARLESS

Travis Scott – ASTROWORLD Reaction

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....

YG – Stay Dangerous Reaction

'Stay Dangerous' doesn't really elevate his career to any new heights but it doesn't negatively impact it either. It's a YG album full of everything you'd expect from a YG record and it does enough to keep things coasting along....
Drake - Scorpion Reaction | Reactions | LIVING LIFE FEARLESS

Drake – Scorpion Reaction

It’s a good listen (Drake doesn’t put out bad listens), but there’s a whole lot that I like on 'Scorpion' but almost nothing I loved. I don’t think I’ve ever skipped through a Drake project as much as I have here. There’s still quotables for days but you gotta get through a lot of uninspired filler to get to it....

Freddie Gibbs – Freddie Reaction

If you know Freddie Gibbs then you already know his music is unapologetically hard, and 'Freddie' might be his hardest one yet. It's at the least, his most focused one. Only coming in at 10 tracks, there's not a moment, verse, or instrumental wasted....
Lecrae & Zaytoven - Let the Trap Say Amen Reaction | Reactions | LIVING LIFE FEARLESS

Lecrae & Zaytoven – Let the Trap Say Amen Reaction

Where as others have typically used these beats to glorify the streets and 'trap' life, Lecrae takes aim at talking about the perils of that lifestyle and advocating for a better and at the least different way. It's not as jarring as you'd expect it to be as he's very subtle in the messaging and the focus is more on the musicality of it all....
PHRESHER - PH Reaction | Reactions | LIVING LIFE FEARLESS

PHRESHER – PH Reaction

Phresher's got a nice flow and voice and at times uses it to great effect to really elevate a song, and the production is generally solid throughout, but 'PH' ultimately comes off as feeling like just another collection of nondescript bangers....

Black Thought & 9th Wonder – Streams of Thought, Vol. 1 – EP Reaction

There's not much more that can be said about the tape other than if you love bars and you love the true essence of hip-hop which came from the heart and truly having something to say, then there's no reason you shouldn't be listening to this project as we speak. Black Thought & 9th Wonder are hip-hop to their core and the Vol. 1 implies that he's only just begun coming for his respect....
Beyoncé & Jay-Z - Everything Is Love Reaction | Reactions | LIVING LIFE FEARLESS

Beyoncé & Jay-Z – Everything Is Love Reaction

Sonically 'Everything Is Love' is as good as you'd expect from Beyoncé & Jay-Z but I don't think there's anything here that's mind-blowing or different than what we've heard from them before (mostly like throwaways from the 'Lemonade' and '4:44' sessions). 'Everything Is Love' doesn't push either one of them artistically but it answers a lot of questions and lives up to their high musical standards....
Nas - Nasir Reaction | Reactions | LIVING LIFE FEARLESS
4.8

Nas – Nasir Reaction

Nas wastes no time in getting right to the issues as most of the album is about subjects he's been addressing for years even before this newfound 'wokeness' and the production, while done by Ye, still feels very true to Nas stylistically, not overly commercial but with a more substantial bounce and rhythm. After 6 years it still would have been nice to get more than 7 tracks from Nas but even in those 7 songs he's able to say a lot and leave a strong impression regardless....
Jay Rock - Redemption Reaction | Reactions | LIVING LIFE FEARLESS
4.6

Jay Rock – Redemption Reaction

On 'Redemption' Jay Rock has clearly pulled out all the stops and it's resulted in his best, most complete project to date and a perfect pairing of his more traditional gangsta rap sensibilities and rap's more modern sounds. This is the definitive Rock album we've been waiting for and it stands tall even among this summer full of giants....

Kanye West – ye Reaction

It's not a bad album - the production is good, although not as good as Daytona, and more of an extension of TLOP - but ye was a major letdown for anyone looking for something more behind the self-centered, PR shtick we've gotten for the past month....
Pusha T - Daytona Reaction | Reactions | LIVING LIFE FEARLESS
5

Pusha T – Daytona Reaction

The soundscapes are as gorgeous as anything Kanye's put out in the last 3 years - lush, grim, and just sparse enough to let Pusha T run wild; and run wild he does. It's high-art coke rap and it's about as cinematic as you can get with music....
A$AP Rocky - Testing Reaction | Reactions | LIVING LIFE FEARLESS
3.8

A$AP Rocky – Testing Reaction

"Testing" is probably A$AP Rocky's most experimental album yet (also his first without direction from Yams), with it's sprawling soundscape that undulates from concept to another, all while not losing his signature charisma and style. However, it doesn't do much to change many people's image of him, as style over substance....
KYLE - Light of Mine Reaction | Reactions | LIVING LIFE FEARLESS
3.7

KYLE – Light of Mine Reaction

KYLE may not fit the stereotypical rapper aesthetic, but he is a technically gifted lyricist and the beats are undeniably catchy. At times the overwhelming positivity can become a bit sickening, like eating too much candy, but he knows his lane and he sticks to it with impressive focus. For what he sets out to do, "Light of Mine" is an impressive debut....
