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

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

"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

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....

Playboi Carti – Die Lit Reaction

Playboi Carti's debut album is definitely aimed at a certain youthful demographic that's only 'rap' in title, and while it has a handful of enjoyable 'vibes', it doesn't have anything that'll disassociate him with anything but "Magnolia."...

Tee Grizzley – Activated Reaction

While "Activated" is still full of bangers and hard-hitting rhymes, it at times feels like Tee Grizzley is trying to escape his image as a 'street level' rapper and tap into more commercial success - which is understandable, but it's not when he's at his best....

Styles P – G-Host Reaction

Styles P just low key may have just dropped the hardest album to come out this year. Hip-hop will always be a young man's game but Styles P shows that he's still got 'it' and then some with the most relevant album to come out of the D-Block click in years....

Desiigner – L.O.D (Life of Desiigner) Reaction

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....

Rae Sremmurd – Sr3mm Reaction

Rae Sremmurd has proven that they sound fine as solo artists but "Sr3mm", while not musically as good as "Swaecation" and a bit better than "Jxmtro", shows that they still sound at their best when feeding off of each other's energy and what they both respectively bring to the table....

Swae Lee – Swaecation Reaction

Swae Lee just solidified the claim that he's the most talented out of Rae Sremmurd with a project full of lush cruising music and pop/R&B experimentation that paid off far more than one might imagine. Out of all 3 offerings, "Swaecation" is by and far the real standout of the bunch....
Slim Jxmmi - Jxmtro Reaction | Reactions | LIVING LIFE FEARLESS

Slim Jxmmi – Jxmtro

I wasn't sure I'd want to hear an entire project of just Slim Jxmmi rapping but he proves that he's more than competent by today's standards, if not a bit repetitive. But who are we kidding, we don't come to Rae Sremmurd for the lyrics and artistry, we come for the turn up; and in that regards Jxmtro  has the most to offer in terms of pure turn up out of the three....

Post Malone – beerbongs & bentleys Reaction

Post Malone's latest doesn't do much in the way of evolving his craft, as the entire album just feels like a long collection of homogeneous 'moods' with songs that sound like every other song on the album that sound like every other song on his previous album. But "beerbongs & bentleys" is an easy (if not mindless) listen and there are a good number of stand out moments, it's just that none of them feel as innovative or exciting as when he first burst onto the scene....

Smoke DZA – Not For Sale Reaction

Smoke DZA's "Not For Sale" is an homage to classic hip-hop and it may not open him up to a new audience outside of his already core fans or hip-hop purists but it's still yet another solid addition to an impressive and growing discography....

J. Cole – KOD Reaction

I'm a fan but I've been as critical of his music as any one out there, but Cole absolutely knocked it out of the park with KOD. Easily his most relatable project yet that has something for everyone. If you're still in the 'hate J. Cole' camp after this then you're just not listening enough or you haven't experienced life enough. Simple as that....
Hard To Kill - Hard To Kill Reaction | Reactions | LIVING LIFE FEARLESS

Hard To Kill – Hard To Kill Reaction

Hard To Kill's sound is dark, lo-fi, moody, and very reminiscent of early A$AP. It's mood music and although it's nothing particularly new or different, it is extremely well done and I found myself grooving with the vibes for a large majority of the album....
Saba - CARE FOR ME | Reactions | LIVING LIFE FEARLESS

Saba – CARE FOR ME Reaction

CARE FOR ME is an absolutely gorgeous project with lush soundscapes that allows Saba to lay down deep, emotional, introspective gem after deep, emotional, introspective gem. It's an exploration of grief, isolation, and trying to cope with the woes of life. But it's more cathartic than masochistic with glimmers of light at the end of the tunnel....
