I Love SZA

So, since I’m late with my post today, I’ll just get straight to the point, son. I love SZA. Like, I really love SZA, man. I mean, her voice is awesome, she’s hot, her songwriting is original, she’s hot, her performance prowess is strong and she’s hot. Oh, did I mention that she’s hot? Anyway, ever since she dropped her Ctrl album three weeks ago, it’s been getting heavy airplay on this side. With that being said, everyone should have her music in rotation.

Now, for me, storytelling and introspection are key ingredients in the music that I like. Both writing tools help listeners to identify with the artist they’re listening too. In addition, tales about relationships never get old, man. Keeping it a buck, sexual preference and orientation don’t even matter, son. Everyone’s been in good and bad relationships. Shit, it’s just a part of the game, bruh. To that point, SZA does a great job of bringing fans into her world with very descriptive lyrics about her highs and lows. Ultimately, even though we’re all complex as people, she appears to be a complete open book.

Moving on, I’m also a huge fan of live instrumentation. Needless to say, all of the guitar licks and live bass runs on the album make my day, son. SZA sticks to a core group of producers and they successfully give the record a cohesive feel. Like, it doesn’t sound like some random compilation of songs that were recorded in a homie’s basement. All in all, I can see all of these songs working really well in a live setting. By and by, those type of details make an album palatable for me.

In the end, TDE doesn’t seem to miss, fam. On the real, ALL of their artists drop heat, bruh. At this point, nothing else needs to be said, son. Go support good music, fam. Lastly, she’s hot. LC out.

P.S. I played “The Weekend” for my wife and she gave me a look like “boy, if you ever, I will murder you.” So, I won’t be playing that song around her anymore. Good day.

Handclaps For Kendrick Lamar!

So, I’m going to keep this post short today, man. Ultimately, I’m just here to congratulate Kendrick Lamar on the success of DAMN. I mean, let’s just keep it a buck for a second, son. This man hasn’t missed yet, fam. On the real, he’s never dropped a wack project and that’s including the mixtapes. Now, I’m not going to join the Peter Rosenberg bandwagon and proclaim that Kendrick is the best rapper ever. However; I can say that he’s successfully put himself on the level of the greatest emcees of all time. With that being said, let’s give that man his flowers while he can smell them.

Now, day after day, I see people complain about the state of music. At this point, there have been countless dissertations about why subgenres like “mumble rap” are trash. For me, instead of railing against shit I don’t like, I’d much rather champion the music I actually dig. So, I take pride in seeing songs like “HUMBLE.go number-one on the Billboard Hot 100. I take pride in seeing all of the songs on DAMN. set streaming records. Listen, there’s so much good music out here, so why waste time talking about the shit we don’t like? All in all, we should just jam out to whatever makes us move and call it a damn day, son.

In the end, there really isn’t much more to say here, fam. Shit, Kendrick did it again, man. Anyway, before I go, let’s just run through my favorite songs from the project. As of right now, I’m jamming out to “DNA.“, “ELEMENT.”, “LOYALTY.”, “HUMBLE.”, “FEAR.” and “DUCKWORTH.” Let’s keep the good music rolling, son. LC out.
