CMSN, GOOD MUSIC

These two songs were amazing. Madeintyo killed it with this original hit that I'm sure made Uber a small fortune. Right from the start of the song you already feel the urge to start partaking in some illicit activity. The fast tempo of both songs and catchy snare fit well with both sets of lyrics. I like the original song the most out of the two singles. I think you should play this song on your show!

Two of the newest rappers in the game teamed up to deliver this great single. Imagine somebody rapping over the Peanuts piano theme and you've got a pretty good idea of what this sounds like. Its just a goofy song with a simple piano riff and verses about weed. The bars could be used on a normal rap song but hearing it over this ridiculous theme makes it that much better. Its a simple fun single that you should play on your show before its too late.

Dej Loaf
Label: 
Self-released

Dej Loaf is back with her new mixtape All Jokes Aside. Being %100 real and independent is important to Dej Loaf, especially since she represents the female side of the rap game. Each of her verses are rattled off without a second thought. But rather than sounding unprepared or substandard, the tracks sound completely raw and intimate. Whether she's telling somebody off or reflecting on her career, you can be sure Dej isn't holding anything back.

"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.
