New Music: J. Cole, Nicki Minaj, Migos, 21 Savage

Published

on

Today turned out to be bigger than expected. J Cole dropped his album, and let me just say I am simply blown away. We’ve known for a while that he isn’t like most rappers, but the growth, and overall quality level is just out of this world.

For the first time, he featured artists on his album, and they fit so perfectly. Verses from a personal favorite (Lil Baby) and one from someone I have kept my eye on (21 Savage), lets just say I was in for a real treat, and they delivered. From a lyrical aspect, this album puts things into a different perspective. It makes you think about choices made, possible outcomes, and so many more different life altering things. This album is simply labeled as a classic.

Nicki Minaj went on a week long “promo” if you will, hinting at dropping something today. From a series of naked pics, to glam shots, which she looks amazing, and tweeting about “Fractions“. All of this, just to release her mixtape “Beam Me Up Scotty” to music platforms. She added 3 songs to it. Let’s just call it what it is, underwhelming.

The mixtape included 3 new songs on it, and to be honest all of them could’ve been kept. They lack replay value. If you ask me, she got bodied by her younger self. The original mixtape is better than all the noise she put on those songs. She had a feature with Wayne and Drake, which for me, Wayne had the weakest verse. If you compare Wayne to himself about 10 years ago, it’s clear he’s declined. But if you compare him to his peers like Kanye, Jay Z and other GOATS…. he should probably stay out of the booth. Nicki and Drake both gave solid verses, but nothing spectacular. The other 2 new songs, they were just….they could’ve been kept in the vault.

21 Savage released an EP in support for the newest installment of SAW, “Sprial“. Not much to say, it’s 21. Nothing to write home about.

Migos is also back. They released the first single from Culture 3. Straightenin is the title. The song shows lack of growth. Same sound as before. The song is making no noise, and I imagine they might’ve struck some sort of deal to perform it as part of Khaled’s Billboard Music Awards set next week. I’ve always said, these musicians have to really take stock in the reality of who they are. If the failure of their solo music wasn’t a clear indication, this flop single should be. They’ve had a fun run, but the general public has moved past that sound.

Adele is coming…

Published

Adele took to her social media outlets earlier today to announce that her new single, “Easy On Me“, will be released next week.

As big as Adele is, it be foolish to say nobody cares, but one thing that always has baffled me is why do we get over hyped for blue eyed soul? Don’t get me wrong, Adele has made so much great music in the past. Her body of work is solid and stands alone. She has earned her spot. But as black people, why do we give blue eyed soul such a high praise, but in return have a hard time promoting and supporting our own people, the originators of this sound?

Please don’t get me wrong, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with enjoying the music of the blue eyed soul singers like Adele, Sam Smith, and Justin Timberlake. I just hope that the original soul singers can get that kind of love and respect as well.

Moe Isaac Premiere’s ‘ The Fader ‘ ( EP)

Published

Critically acclaimed singer/songwriter Moe Isaac is finally ready to release his long awaited third project ‘The Fader‘ which has truly been a long time coming. The R&B crooner born and raised in NYC is clearly no stranger to doing this on his own terms so it only makes sense that he continues to push his eclectic blend of Hip Hip and R&B to the masses which ultimately sets him apart from the rest. The classically trained LaGuardia High School alumni definitely put in the work over the past two decades from winning amateur night at the Apollo three times while in a group and selling sold out shows as a solo act as he searched for the right place to land his debut project. He ultimately decided to release his 2009 project ‘This Ain’t R&B‘ independently to critical acclaim which solidified him as once to watch but then it would be awhile before his growing fanbase would hear another project from him. In 2017 he released his next EP ‘ Love on A Spaceship ‘ which showed major growth in his sound and production style as listeners gravitated toward the new Moe Isaac, but once again the entrepreneur took another hiatus from music as he proved to be a rockstar in the IT world as well. Now although he didn’t release any projects since then, his passion for his craft never left him as he continued to figure out who Moe Isaac truly was as a singer/performer and now he’s back to give the world just a preview of what can we expect from his highly anticipated album. For now get into his new 4 track EP ‘The Fader‘ as he gives us a glimpse into the world of Moe Isaac below.
