Rae Sremmurd
Label: 
Interscope Records

"By Chance" is the new single by Rae Sremmurd and producer Mike WiLL Made It. It's one of those songs that everybody likes but still doesn't go big. The song is more mellow than what Rae Sremmurd usually puts out and that's probably because its about looking for weed and xanax. None of the verses are that impressive but its got a catchy piano instrumental it's Rae Sremmurd so it at least deserves a listen.

This single is very... Wiz Khalifa. It's a chill smokers anthem that has a great beat. Although this song isn't a complete BANGER, it's a nice song to walk to class to. (also it sorta made me feel like i was in a music video)

The One & Only, Jackson Sturkey is an awesome album. Jackson Sturkey has a certain Jon Bellion vibe with his blend of hip hop, fusion, and jazz. There isn’t a song on this album that I did not like at first listen. The two recommended songs 2 Dope, Cash, Love and 5 Gone Tomorrow are the only tracks that you can play, but if you can download this album and give it a listen it will be really worth it. Jackson Sturkey's music sounds a lot like Twenty One Pilots, with hip hop base with a a pop influence.

This Song was pretty bumping! Vic uses a little bit of auto tune in certain parts which I dont really like. Other than that, this song was really good. Vic Mensa does a really good job using strange beats and making them work. Play this song on your show!

This song was pretty bumping! I never heard of Desiigner before so I didn't know what to expect. To my surprise, it was pretty good. I noticed that the beat sounds very similar to Pt.2 on The Life of Pablo by Kanye West. Other than that, pretty good song, throw it on your show!

The Life of Pablo is unlike any other album Kanye West has put out. The seventh addition to the West legacy praises hip-hop and gospel music. The CD starts off with one of the greatest songs that has been put out in a rather long time. "Ultralight Beam" solidifies Wests early statements that he wanted this to be a gospel album, featuring Kelly Price and Kirk Franklin.

If you've ever thought about hitting up one of the models that you stalk on Instagram, this one's probably for you. I'm not going to say this song is for everyone, but it's definitely a hip-hop must at the moment. Even if you don't agree with it's message, you'll still laugh at the hilarious lyrics. This single will have you accidentaly singing catchy yet horribly offensive lyrics in public. In addition to making Angela Simmons that much more instagram famous, it's also made the phrase "snapchat me that pussy" an acceptable thing to say.

G-Eazy is back with his latest album, When It's Dark Out. Like his previous album, These Things Happen, G-Eazy's latest features quite a large collection of guest vocals from artists that span a large collection of genres, including Bebe Rexha, Chris Brown, Too $hort, Grace, and E-40. While most of the tracks focus on the life of fame and fortune, some of them, like "Everything Will Be Ok", tell stories from G-Eazy's life, producing a great song in the process.

This album isn't too bad. It wasn't my style, and almost put my friend in the car to sleep. The songs on the album flow into one another, so sometimes I had trouble distinguishing which song was which. One song that got catchy real quick was "Black Tux". Pavé does do a very good job about telling a story about his life through his music. The song "Road Less Traveled" talks about his own struggle. He does get political through his music. He uses it to talk about the needs within the community.
