My Problem With Summer Walker’s Album

So, before I even begin, let me say that I’m digging Summer Walker‘s new album. I mean, despite the fact that I’m a rapper, I’m probably an R&B dude at heart, son. Shit, if my singing voice were just a little better, I’d leave all of this Rap shit behind, man. In any case, despite feeling her Over It album, I have a major gripe, fam: song length. All in all, why can’t Walker just make longer songs, bruh?

Ok, for those who are unaware, Summer Walker just released her debut studio album. Side bar, artists need to knock this bullshit off, son. Hell, Chance the Rapper also tried that “debut studio album” nonsense when he already has three full-length projects in his discography. All I know is, whether Walker wants to admit it or not, Last Day of Summer is her debut album, man. Anyway, her new project, Over It, is mostly produced by London on da Track, super producer/her current boyfriend. All in all, the album fucking rides, fam. Real talk, it has a lot of good shit on there.

With all of that being said, the length of most of these tracks kill me, bruh. Like, anytime I start really getting into the song, it fucking ends, son. For example, she has an extended version of “Playing Games” with Bryson Tiller on it. The truth is, that song, with the feature, is two minutes and 23 seconds. Where was the cotdamn extension, brethren? All I can say is, on an album that has 18 tracks, only five of them are longer than three minutes. Fam, that’s not nearly enough. The way I see it, when an artist makes music that’s designed to break headboards to, the songs need to be longer than two-and-a-half minutes, man. Frankly, folks wouldn’t even be able to get a good rhythm on the pumping before the tracks end, bruh.

In the end, that’s my only issue with the album, son. Other than that, Summer Walker and London on da Track made a dope ass project, man. Ultimately, even the features are well-placed, fam. By and by, she’s got Tiller, Usher6lackPartyNextDoorA Boogie wit da HoodieJhené Aiko and Drake to hold it down with her. Moving on, below are the songs from the album that I’m currently fucking with. Gotta love good music, bruh. That is all. LC out.

dvsn Is Drake’s Best Act

So, I won’t lie, son. As I write this post, I’m playing “Nuh Time/Tek Time” at ignorant volumes. With that being said, I won’t mince words here, man: dvsn is BY FAR Drake‘s best act, fam. I mean, given the current musical landscape, this is exactly the type of R&B that I want to hear, bruh. Shit, in an age where singers can’t sing and producers can’t play instruments, I get hyped when I hear music like this. All in all, anybody who’s sleeping needs to get onboard.

Now, keeping it a buck, I caught on to the dvsn wave around the time “Too Deep” dropped. I was aware of their first two songs (“The Line” and “With Me“) but I didn’t take the time to listen. Needless to say, once I heard “Too Deep,” I scavenged for anything else I could find, son. In any case, once Sept. 5th came out, it was a wrap, man. Besides the aforementioned jams, I kept “Try/Effortless” and “Do It Well” on repeat, fam.

Moving on, as of right now, I’m knee deep in their new album, Morning After. Now, I didn’t think I’d be able to say this, but the production may be better on this record, bruh. I mean, Nineteen85 put his whole foot, ankle and shin in these instrumentals, son. In addition, Daniel Daley is still showing folks that vocals matter. Listen, let me just say it like this: they sampled the god Maxwell on “P.O.V.” and I didn’t want to shoot them in the kneecaps, man. Real talk, that takes talent, fam. All I know is, lesser men would’ve royally fucked that up, bruh. By and by, folks need to quit reading this and just go listen to the album.

In the end, this post ain’t a shot at anyone else at OVO Sound, son. Folks can keep enjoying PartyNextDoor, Majid Jordan and Roy Woods, man. All I’m saying is, if I were a betting man, I’d put my money on dvsn, fam. Ultimately, any music that’ll make a girl strip should be appreciated, bruh. Shit, nothing else needs to be said here. LC out.
