ATTENDEES
Daniel Olney, Keith Rollins

AGENDA
● Talk about three albums that are completely different in tone and
intention assessing levels of success.
● Figure out how to tell intention from the albums discussed, what to look
for.

NOTES
● Rico Nasty-Nightmare Vacation. Billed as her debut album the Maryland MC
has build scream rap into a different place. She can reach the volume
Waka Flocka did but craft the concepts to be direct yet fantastical. The
production this time is bigger, the question…does she lose the sharp
edges that got her here?
● Your Old Droog-Dump YOD: Krutoy Edition. Droog is a real conundrum. He
sounds like Illmatic nas in his tone but he makes very jarring jokes and
references. Recently a studio engineer online said he begged Droog to
take homophobic slurs out of his music (previously) and got shut down.
He’s very talented in that Action Bronson way but a habitual line
stepper.

● Elujay and J.Robb-Gems In The Cornerstore. Elujay is the singer/rapper.
J.Robb is the producer. “GEMS IN THE CORNERSTORE’ is a project compiled
of many ideas that date all the way back to 2017,” says J.Robb. “To me
this project is a representation of just having fun with the homies,
making music, and creating from a space of joy.”

Intentionality Steps

  1. Defining your interests
  2. Defining your on-mic personality
  3. Growing with your audience
