At some point in an artist's career, he can feel like he only do so much in his city. For J. Pinder, that happened and he ended up moving down to Los Angeles in 2012. A move that might have been criticized a little bit, but has turned out to ...

Review: Future – Honest

April 23rd, 2014

At last, Future’s sophomore effort is here. What a long seven hundred and thirty nine days it’s been since his debut, Pluto, dropped to a less than stellar commercial reception. Fans have suffered through the delay and subsequent cancellation of the Super Future/Fire Marshal mixtape, album pushbacks, name changes (Honest was originally and awesomely titled “Future […]

Review: YG – My Krazy Life

March 19th, 2014

The spot for gangster rappers is getting smaller and smaller. This is especially true of MCs from the west coast and particularly Compton, the cradle of gangster rap. Look at the stars the West is churning out these days: Odd Future weirdos and decidedly non-gangster Kendrick Lamar. So how does YG, a guy so dedicated […]

Mastermind, previously slated for release on December 17th, 2013, is in stores this week. It’s Rick Ross’s sixth studio album, and his second in a row to miss a winter release—despite statements over the years by Ross and the MMG twitter account that the Untouchable Maybach Empire does not do push backs. If there’s anything […]

Review: Schoolboy Q – Oxymoron

February 27th, 2014

Schoolboy Q’s Oxymoron has been fighting an uphill battle since Q announced it as his follow-up to 2010’s excellent Habits & Contradictions. Oxy was initially slated for a third quarter release in 2013, then a fourth quarter release, then it didn’t have a date, and finally landed this February. Top Dawg and Schoolboy blamed the […]

Pat: 2013 has been over for like, a week! Over here at SD we were too busy reveling in the great year we’d been having to post anything during the holidays. Now we’re back and it’s January, so our lives are as shitty as ever. For our 2013 wrap up– which ends up being a […]

2010’s Recovery was the worst album of Eminem’s career. Newly sober, he struggled with his identity in a rap world that had left him behind. Over unfamiliar production, brilliant flows morphed into frustrated, clumsy yelling. The unabashed corniness that had marked every Eminem release prior had none of the venom to back it up. Things […]

Dom Kennedy may the best-kept secret in hip-hop. He’s not as prolific, but Dom’s right up there with Curren$y on the list of rappers whom, despite not having found mainstream success, are absolute masters of their domains. Dom’s wit and nostalgia-laced vibes make for one of the most sharply honed sounds coming not just out […]

Review: Danny Brown – Old

October 14th, 2013

Old. What a good goddam album title. Danny Brown is, by hip-hop standards, old. Throw “old” in front of his initials and you get ODB, the moniker of another great rapper whose style was without a father. And it’s a great riff on the “buy my old album” philosophy. Old is an EDM-infused boom-bap Frankenstein […]

Pusha T is as ferocious as ever.  Since Lord Willin’ Pusha has been taking braggadocio to new heights. He’s a coke rapper, and has been unapologetic from the start. For Pusha, it’s always been an awesome way to make a ton of money. It isn’t a tragic necessity like it is for other rappers. Malice […]

Review: The Weeknd – Kiss Land

September 12th, 2013

It’s funny that Abel Tesfaye, aka The Weeknd, is just now getting out his studio debut. He dropped something around 30 songs over 3 projects in 2011. Now add that to his influence on Drake’s Take Care in the same year. Plus he’s been touring. Extensively. Abel gets less enigmatic and more prolific with each […]
