Song Review-Money Counter by Two-9 produced by Charlie Heat

Song Review-Money Counter by Two-9 produced by Charlie Heat by Dan-O This whole who-killed-who-on-the-track way of thinking is post-Eminem v. Jay on Renegade(on The Blueprint). That’s not how we listened to rap music when real groups existed. To be honest my favorite groups were the ones where I never thought about whose verse I wasContinue reading “Song Review-Money Counter by Two-9 produced by Charlie Heat”

Song Review-Gone Girl by Vado produced by Deelockit313 & Mandalae Didd

Song Review-Gone Girl by Vado produced by Deelockit313 & Mandalae Didd by Dan-O I’ve always thought it was strange that the NY goon rappers of old would wear Godfather persona’s and lecture (or sometimes just shout) about respect and honor and loyalty, then snicker at how dirty they were doing the women they were dating.Continue reading “Song Review-Gone Girl by Vado produced by Deelockit313 & Mandalae Didd”

Is Rass KassContinue reading “EP Review-Skate Life by Black Dave”

Mixtape retrospective: looking back on Drake’s So Far Gone

Mixtape retrospective: looking back on Drake’s So Far Gone by Dan-O So Far Gone is like a mixtape rubik’s cube. I keep picking it up and listening and getting confused; how do people like this? It seems needy and emotional but not thoughtful. Drake was constantly referencing women but not with any distinct intelligent thingsContinue reading “Mixtape retrospective: looking back on Drake’s So Far Gone”

Song Review-The Devil is Alive (Lucifer pt. 2) by B. Dolan by Dan-O On the original The Devil is a Lie (found on Ross’s 2014 album Mastermind) Jay-z and Ross take very different approaches. Jay’s verse is about how ridiculous it is to think of him as a devil worshiping illuminati official/evil genius, he makes the caseContinue reading “Song Review-The Devil is Alive (Lucifer pt. 2) by B. Dolan”
