Mixtape Review-No One Is Safe by Trinidad James

Mixtape Review-No One Is Safe by Trinidad James by Dan-O This mixtape is definitely an appetizer sampler of Atlanta hip hop circa 2014-15 but it’s so good it might ruin your meal. Six out of the ten total tracks share time with guest stars and the names are major: Scotty ATL, OG Maco, ILoveMakonnen, PeeWeeContinue reading “Mixtape Review-No One Is Safe by Trinidad James”

Song Review-Shit by Lil Wayne

Song Review-Shit by Lil Wayne by Dan-O I like my Wayne desperate and angry. The difference between stagnant Wayne and enraged ,in the zone, Wayne is shockingly vast. On Sorry 4 The Wait 2 damn near every song references the fact that Cash Money is holding back The Carter 5. On this song alone heContinue reading “Song Review-Shit by Lil Wayne”

Mixtape Review-Beast Mode by Future x Zaytoven

Mixtape Review-Beast Mode by Future x Zaytoven by Dan-O I’m incorrect but I always think of Future as an amazing raw talent. The way basketball writers must have looked at Wilt Chamberlain. He’s not raw at all. The music always feels that way because of how he attacks it. A new project roll out forContinue reading “Mixtape Review-Beast Mode by Future x Zaytoven”

Song Review-Marilyn Monroe by K Camp produced by Big Fruit

Song Review-Marilyn Monroe by K Camp produced by Big Fruit by Dan-O K Camp has been a bankable commodity for years. The collaborative mixtape he did with Sy Ari Da Kid a few years ago is one of my favorite collaborative projects in recent memory. He has a way of making utterly pleasant R&B withoutContinue reading “Song Review-Marilyn Monroe by K Camp produced by Big Fruit”

Mixtape Review-Preacher’s Son by Tut

Mixtape Review-Preacher’s Son by Tut by Dan-O In my mind Nipsey Hussle Mailbox Money is the most important mixtape I count as being 2015. Preacher’s Son is right after it. So many narratives come out of the first few listens that you can’t help but keep pursuing them. The battle between the knucklehead Tut whoContinue reading “Mixtape Review-Preacher’s Son by Tut”

Song Review-If Skillz Sold featuring Siebz produced by Purp Dogg

Song Review-If Skillz Sold featuring Siebz produced by Purp Dogg by Dan-O Moss Da Beast did not release his #IfSkillzSold mixtape to shame the hip hop community for listening to the radio. The title is a way to get the discussion out of the way: Moss might never become popular by comparison to lesser rappersContinue reading “Song Review-If Skillz Sold featuring Siebz produced by Purp Dogg”

Mixtape Review-Mailbox Money by Nipsey Hussle

Mixtape Review-Mailbox Money by Nipsey Hussle by Dan-O I have said things about Nipsey Hussle like “If he broke in the 90’s he would be just another West Coast Gangsta rapper,” or “I don’t know why everyone cares so much about Nipsey Hussle?” Scarface turned it all around for me. In an interview he didContinue reading “Mixtape Review-Mailbox Money by Nipsey Hussle”

Song review-Flexington by Project Pat produced by Lil Awree

Song review-Flexington by Project Pat produced by Lil Awree by Dan-O For any lovers of the Three Six Mafia sound, all of Project Pats solo mixtapes and albums are mandatory. This gem comes off of his newest mixtape Cheez N Dope 3. He is definitely the model Gucci Mane follows: horrifyingly descriptive lyrics sometimes bombasticContinue reading “Song review-Flexington by Project Pat produced by Lil Awree”

Mixtape Review-Humble Hustle 3 by Young Moe

Mixtape Review-Humble Hustle 3 by Young Moe by Dan-O When I tell people that I adore Young Moe’s music they look at me cross-eyed. This is fully attributable to the fact that most people don’t know his music and he has a stupid name. The first time I was told of Moe’s awesomeness I certainlyContinue reading “Mixtape Review-Humble Hustle 3 by Young Moe”
