G Herbo Sessions
One of the greatest "quality", if we can call it that, is that G Herbo does not make people tell the news, he lives it and he suffers from it. Throughout Sessions approach the hardness and the reality of the street in Chicago with an atypical drill as he knows how to do it and as he always knew how to do it. I will say that the most beautiful song that illustrates this is My Bro's a Legend where he expresses his remorse about the death of one of his relatives, I quote Should've been right there, feel like I let him down. However Sessions has some flaws, like for example the instrumental tracks which are often risky for my taste, which do not

Even if I was expecting a lot more tracks, they avoided the almost usual mistake of doing wobbly label collaborator projects with a lot of filling, here they went to the essential. Travis knew how to stand back enough for the others to shine and the featurings to be relevant, without overshadowing the others. The project starts with a very good remix of Highest In The Room, which I thought was basically unfinished, and now I think they've found the vocals and the contributors (not to mention that they've polished the ending too, at the time it made me angry that it ended badly like that). I'll add an incredible mention to Don Toliver who is r

Avenade It's a Whimsical Afterlife
It's a Whimsical Afterlife is a real surprise this year, because finally Avenade remains an illustrious stranger as a musician for the moment (he is a music reviewer like us) but I think this album has a good chance to do him the most good. Finally, even if he wouldn't be able to become known, he left his mark on my mind with a stratospheric Noise Rock album. I have never listened to these previous projects, but the level of this one is so strong that there is no particular need for a comparison. In an atmosphere that is sometimes oppressive, sometimes tormented, Avenade offers us all its soul, we can feel all the energy, all the anger, all t

Aries (US) Welcome Home
09/26 rWelcome Home is a great first achievement. Aries delivers us his best tracks worked since 2 years (and this to his importance, we will discuss it later). As a reminder, the Californian singer/rapper/producer is often classified in the Pop Rock genre, but personally I think it's more Emo Rap. One of Aries' strengths, apart from his talent for catchy melodies, is that instrumental music is almost entirely tailored to him, since he is the one who produces or co-produces on all his tracks. I was also rather amazed by the very good level of his prods, which, like his universe around the Carousel or RaceCar for example, uses and transforms t

NLE Choppa Cottonwood
I am a little disappointed, even if it doesn t really surprise me in the end, this project is really forgettable and insufficient. Yet I gave it a chance several times today. Recently he's been trying to make more melodic songs that look more like "traditional songs" than freestyles with which he exploded in the eyes of the general public. It's nice 2 minutes but honestly it's not a formula that I personally like. However on this project you will find a large majority of songs more generic or medium songs without interest which proves that he wanted to mark the occasion with an end of year project. I think he's preparing something more seriou

Cam'ron Purple Haze 2
Even though it's in the same spirit and it's a good album, we really have to stop the cult album sequels. I hadn't listened to Cam for years, or I had stopped listening to Purple Haze on a very occasional basis, and this sequel is pleasant because he has remained true to himself, faithful to his sound and his formula without getting lost trying to do something modern and unpretentious and finally making an album for the grammys. It's clearly a slap in the face of nostalgia.

Gucci Mane East Atlanta Santa 3
Honestly it's not really what I was expecting for Christmas... it wasn't on my list so I'm not going to be too difficult with it, and finally it's a "gift" for Guwop fans like us so we're taking it, however it's a very weak project, surely one of the weakest for a long time I would say. The first listening left me perplexed, usually I still have a hype for the legendary Gucci and the second listening didn't even allow me to find more than 2 songs that are worth it, when it's good it's just good but very often it's quite average.
