Damm djvlad thinks he is to big to get cancelled but it seems like he is getting more and more heat.

Smoke DZA dropped a really good album. I was told 21’s album is fire, and I still need to give that new Elzhi a listen.

Jay is always on point. No matter how much guys like Rosenberg hate on him.

Conway The Machine, Benny Butcher, Freddie Gibbs, Jay Electronica and Westside have dominated my rotation for quite some time now. I'm also loving that Jay Electronica , who cares if its late, it's on point, and the bars are fire. I only listen to cats who really rhyme, I've avoided pop rap since Laffy Taffy.
If you have no critics you'll likely have no success.

Burden of proof album solidifies Benny as the best rapper in NY right now, if it's not him it's Conway.

The pandemic couldn't stop Chauncey Hollis from having an undefeated 2020.

Hope Roc Nation can fix those publishing issues he had.

Still doing top notch visuals in videos, too, with that Spy VS Spy theme in the Paak video. His career has aged as well or better than almost anyone, this is one of the greatest all-around artists of the last quarter century.



Kendrick returns and Busta can still leave the pocket as well as anyone in the game. Damn his verse is fun. I would love it if ELE2 was actually a classic. The features are crazy.
