13484044, Nah, this Jidenna album crazy.
Posted by PROMO, Fri May-05-23 12:18 PM
He got inhabited by the spirit of Bootsy Collins, then did a song with him a handful of tracks in, then started rapping about being polyamorous.

this shit is dope. and in case you do check it out, he's not really rappin on here except on a track or two.

sucks cuz probably no one will hear this since he's just that "Classic Man" guy in the history books now.
13484045, was not a Jidenna fan before, but this album kinda goes
Posted by soulsike, Fri May-05-23 12:20 PM
I was impressed. Not sure how much I'll go back to it personally, but it beat my expectations
13484047, i'll be going back frequently. this has a good summer vibe as well.
Posted by PROMO, Fri May-05-23 12:25 PM
this a good "put it on right before the sun starts setting chillin on the balcony with a drink" kinda album.
13484424, Co-sign this...
Posted by Marbles, Fri May-12-23 11:21 AM

I was never really big into him. I checked this album and was pleasantly surprised. It was cool enough that it'll get some more spins from me.
13484048, Thanks for the heads up
Posted by snacks, Fri May-05-23 12:35 PM
I will check this out. I loved 85 to Africa
13484057, It's so good
Posted by mista k5, Fri May-05-23 01:11 PM
13484046, It's time to talk about Lucy Camp for real
Posted by soulsike, Fri May-05-23 12:23 PM
I didn't care for that goth album she put out a year or so ago, but she's back in her bag on this S'Mores project, and it's time to give her some real credit. She can spit, and she can put together a solid project.
13484053, A couple drops from earlier in the week
Posted by mista k5, Fri May-05-23 12:47 PM
Both really good.

Cashus King & Blu - The Blu​(​e) Tape

Klassy - Good Seeds
13484058, in my personal opinion, IDK should be talked about similarly to Kendrick.
Posted by PROMO, Fri May-05-23 01:20 PM
now, he's not quite on Kendrick's level when it comes to BARS, but when it comes to ART? he's on the level in my book.

this new album is fucking great. IDK isn't just a rapper, he's literally one of the best musical ARTISTS we have going. he never mails it in.

13484063, I thought it was solid
Posted by mista k5, Fri May-05-23 03:51 PM
It has some tracks I will definitely come back to but I keep cooling on him after each new album.
13484064, interesting.
Posted by PROMO, Fri May-05-23 03:58 PM
i need to listen more but off one full listen this feels like his 2nd best project to me.
13484104, Gotta check this too
Posted by snacks, Mon May-08-23 10:55 AM
>now, he's not quite on Kendrick's level when it comes to

He's definitely one of my favorite artists today. He always puts out a solid project, and you can tell that he genuinely cares about his craft. Really looking forward to listening
13484068, though his star isn't as bright anymore, Omarion stays with a bop.
Posted by PROMO, Fri May-05-23 09:13 PM
the album he dropped today is a dope traditional r&b album

only one song on there i didn't like.
13484084, agreed, I've played Omarion joint a few times
Posted by Ray_Snill, Sun May-07-23 09:14 AM
I hate that Candy song but the rest is really good

13484091, yup, Candy is the song i didn't like. everything was a good to great...
Posted by PROMO, Sun May-07-23 05:57 PM
to me.
13484069, the Snakehips and SBTRKT albums are good.
Posted by PROMO, Fri May-05-23 09:15 PM
like, nothing earth shaking in my opinion, but definitely good listens.
13484105, Madonna Immaculate Colelction in Atmos
Posted by handle, Mon May-08-23 11:14 AM

13484135, RE: New Music - May 2023

13484403, Madison McFerrin and Fatoumata for me
Posted by soulsike, Fri May-12-23 10:05 AM
Been a Fatou fan for a grip. Love listening to her stuff in the car...

Madison is good, but can I say 28 minutes does not equal "album"? (no disrespect, this is a generational thing that I just need to accept)

It came out last month but I just got hip to Kay Young's We Meet At Last EP today, too, and was very impressed.
13484413, RE: Madison McFerrin
Posted by Hitokiri, Fri May-12-23 10:26 AM
I dig the album. But man, Utah, is a fucking jam to me. I was already a fan of her acapella/looped vocal style, but I really love her over that fuller production. I hope she does more like that in the future.
13484471, Mcferrin all summer
Posted by grey, Fri May-12-23 05:39 PM
Pops was in his BAG on run ha.

Really diggin this, lotta refreshing stuff on there.
13484414, I'm checking out the following albums this weekend:

13484461, Russ' Chomp 2.5 EP? FIRE.
Posted by PROMO, Fri May-12-23 03:09 PM
raps fire, beats super fire. that Havoc beat?

i like Jack Harlow, but that whole white rapper thing that popped off a couple weeks ago?

Russ just proved he's better. so, that's one.

13484506, Overmono was the one I'd been waiting for
Posted by wrecknoble, Sun May-14-23 08:44 AM
and it delivered. I pre-ordered the vinyl back in January and I'm glad I did. It shipped out early last week so should arrive soon. Excited to bump that on the system.

13484891, Kaytramine was alright to me. Not as good as I hoped.
Posted by PROMO, Fri May-19-23 02:27 PM
a few bangers on there for sure, but not all bangers which is what i kinda expected so maybe it's my fault? lol.

the Kaytra beats on there just weren't as fire as a whole (there's a few DOPE ones) as i thought they'd be.

i liked Summer Walker's EP a lot.
13484910, I didn’t enjoy Amine’s rapping at all
Posted by DJR, Sat May-20-23 10:45 AM
Unnecessarily vulgar in a weird and forced way….I assumed he was like 18 or something. Nope, lol.

He’s unlikable too - I can’t listen to rappers who come off as unlikable.

Nah, I can’t get into this album.
13485195, Yep I agree with this

Fun party flow, but it feels like it should be accessible to like a family party-- then he just throws out random vulgar shit.
13485203, Here's my issue
Posted by snacks, Fri May-26-23 02:29 PM
Well, issueS:

1) It seemed to be pushed as a summer album but is hardly spring
2) I don't think the beats fit Amine. When you look at his most successful songs (Caroline, Reel It In, Charmander, etc) ... shit, when you look at the songs he sounded the best over on his last album ... I don't see why Kaytra even pitched a lot of the beats he decided to pitch
13485223, yea. it’s some shit on there though.
Posted by grey, Sat May-27-23 05:29 PM

Them shits go. Wish they went this route for the whole album the rappity rap shit don’t really work for him.

Hannah Jadagu was a pretty good listen. i'll keep an eye out for her.

the Gaslamp Killer/Heliocentrics album was good (saw it on bandcamp, not dsps) - one question tho - wasn't GLK in some rapey/creepy drama a couple years ago? Whatever happened w/ that?

I think it might be off-putting for some but as you let it play it builds into something interesting. Hopefully there's an album coming.
13485200, Arlo Parks and the Rory album
Posted by soulsike, Fri May-26-23 01:30 PM
Rory put together a great group of people and kept everyone on task. Solid, solid project.

and I've been playing this Arlo Parks nonstop since I got it.
13485202, The Arlo Parks is really good
Posted by mista k5, Fri May-26-23 01:47 PM
I didn't like the start of the Rory album but the rest was solid.
13485277, BeMyFiasco song on Rory’s album goes!
Posted by DJR, Mon May-29-23 08:14 PM
Overall, that album is pretty good.
13485201, Kassa Overall - Animals is great
Posted by mista k5, Fri May-26-23 01:47 PM
Jazzy rap done in a great way. "Virtuoso musos appear alongside rap poets, including Danny Brown, Wiki, Lil B, and Shabazz Palaces."

Definitely recommend it.
13485229, Listened to the track with Shabazz and Ish
Posted by natenate101, Sun May-28-23 12:42 AM

13485230, Lavarr the Starr & Shabazz Palaces
Posted by natenate101, Sun May-28-23 12:50 AM
Think this actually came out in its entirety last month but didn’t see it talked about. It’s basically Ish using an alter ego though I’m not sure why as it’s still very Shabazz Palaces-like. He cadence is unmistakable at this point anyway. It’s a short joint but Luxury Us Love is my favorite joint.

Curious if anyone else here peeped it?
