@BigSean Should Perform These Ten Songs On His ‘Unfriendly Reminder’ Tour

Published

on

The news is out. Big Sean is embarking on a new tour with Playboi Carti, Gashi, and Shy Glizzy. Tickets have already gone on sale and the world is preparing to see what the Detroit superstar has in store for Unfriendly Reminder. But this time, there’s a twist: fans get to pick the setlist of songs for him to perform. There’s so much material for Sean to cover, that when he usually goes through the same songs over and over, we get agitated. Here’s what Sean had to say on Twitter about his choice.

It’s nice to see that he’s committed to pleasing longtime fans looking for the hungrier, rawer Sean of old. His new releases have been good, but none have come close to the early 2010s Sean, the one that would cry on stage at disbelief of where he’d managed to get to.

With that being said, we’re going to give Sean ten songs that’ll send fans on a nostalgic trip as well as showcase his talents that were in high-demand (and still are).

Enjoy Hip Hop’s Birthday With These Classics

Published

on

Today in August of 1973, a Back To School Jam was thrown by teenager Cindy Campbell with the goal of getting enough money to get some clothes for school. To help with this goal, she enlisted the help of her brother Clive Campbell and his DJing skills to handle the party. The sounds created in that room would go on to become the first rumblings of the genre that we now know today as hip-hop, the number one most consumed genre in the world.

In celebration of the most important day in the culture that we inhibit, here are some jams to commemorate this legendary day.

Three Reasons Why @zaaymusic_ ‘s ‘BLNCE Is The Album You Need To Hear

Published

on

Zaay is one of our new favorite rappers. His new project BLNCE is, upon first listen, one of our favorite albums of the year. There’s so much to love about it – from the production to the lyrics, it’s got the full package. Here’s three reasons why it’s something for you to check out:

The Production Is Out Of This World

Many producers go for a trap sound that is in line with what’s popular right now. It often works, spawning a temporary  fixation on the artist’s work, but it’s usually evaporates within a week. BLNCE is made up of soulful sounds that aren’t unlike anything you’ll hear right now. The closest that I could accurately compare it to would be Friday Night Lights-era J. Cole because of just how smooth it is. From beginning to end, thirteen tracks exactly, it consists of a certain kind of vibrant brilliance that stays with you long after the album ends.

Lyricism Is The Main Focus

Zaay takes his time here to establish his powerful lyrical talents. He switches flows here like he switches flows, rapping circles around much of his competition, in the industry and outside of it. My personal favorite is the tantalizing “L.I.D.” that features a powerhouse performance by him that really brings you into his world of psychologically vivid rhymes. Each of the features here is held to the same lyrical standard. Drew Famous’ contribution is perhaps the best thanks to his own idiosyncratic delivery.

It Challenges You To Look Beneath The Surface

If you take the time to peruse SoundCloud projects from rising artists, you’ll find that most of them lack having a overarching theme. The artists are trying to get on, so they create projects with a slew of what they hope to be hits with the ideal scenario being that one of them gets them signed. Zaay’s project is created with the sole idea revolving around the types of balance that exist in one’s life. This lets the project warp its creative energy around a central focus, making it ten times better than much of what you’ll find online.
