PartyNextDoor and Drake: The Questionable Collaboration

PartyNextDoor and Drake: The Questionable Collaboration by Dan-O I wish I could be a super fan like the people who wave the flag for Drake or Beyonce or Nicki. I admire it because faith in an artist is trust and they have absolute faith. I have trust issues. So we’ve heard the reference tracks whereContinue reading “PartyNextDoor and Drake: The Questionable Collaboration”

Quarantine Lifestyle: Book Edition

Quarantine Lifestyle: Book Edition by Dan-O Dirty secret time. Book people are like gardeners. They are serious about their grind. I respect it but I don’t function like they do. I can’t just slam through 400 page book after 500 page book. I have created my own system of staying in tune with different sourcesContinue reading “Quarantine Lifestyle: Book Edition”

Quarantine Lifestyle: Music Edition

Quarantine Lifestyle: Music Edition by Dan-O It is important that you stay safe and stay in. In order to successfully do that you need to keep yourself sane. I want to give you a layout of dope music running through my headphones while on lock down. You can check these albums out when you wantContinue reading “Quarantine Lifestyle: Music Edition”

Song of The Year-Hit My Phone by Megan Thee Stallion featuring Kehlani

Song of The Year-Hit My Phone by Megan Thee Stallion featuring Kehlani by Dan-O You just can’t beat the kind of collaboration that unites two fabulously interesting artists coming off their best work. In 2019, Kehlani dropped the elegant and well crafted While We Wait while Megan Thee Stallion was everywhere. She dropped her Fever project, dropped some killerContinue reading “Song of The Year-Hit My Phone by Megan Thee Stallion featuring Kehlani”

Albums of The Year so far p.1

Albums of The Year so far p.1 by Dan-O Since this site started in 2011 we have never posted a list. At best, posting the list distracts from a focus on good art. It moves the readers eye towards the numerical ranking aspect. At worst, It becomes an arbitrary insult that leaves every project notContinue reading “Albums of The Year so far p.1”

The Greatest Sports Reference of Curren$y’s Career and The Roadmap to Roster Appreciation

The Greatest Sports Reference of Curren$y’s Career and The Roadmap to Roster Appreciation by Dan-O It is not that I’d like to hang out with Curren$y….I kind of already do. The combination of how much music he puts out with the strength and clarity of his voice means he’s always in my ear with somethingContinue reading “The Greatest Sports Reference of Curren$y’s Career and The Roadmap to Roster Appreciation”

Song of The Year-Pose (remix) by Yo Gotti featuring Lil Uzi Vert and Megan Thee Stallion

Song of The Year-Pose (remix) by Yo Gotti featuring Lil Uzi Vert and Megan Thee Stallion by Dan-O Untrapped is full throttle fun. Yo Gotti is a heck of a beat picker and Ben Billions really held him down on this album. He works directly on five of the fifteen tracks and they are allContinue reading “Song of The Year-Pose (remix) by Yo Gotti featuring Lil Uzi Vert and Megan Thee Stallion”

G.O.A.T. Components-Lil Wayne

G.O.A.T. Components-Lil Wayne by Dan-O Albums (Classics and numbers)-I revisited Wayne’s place all time after his 2020 release Funeral. It is superb but let’s look at how good it is in context. Funeral is twenty four songs and Carter five is 23. That means from September 2018 to January 2020 he’s released 47 songs. Funeral went #1 which gives him aContinue reading “G.O.A.T. Components-Lil Wayne”

#BandcampGold-Aloha by Son Little

#BandcampGold-Aloha by Son Little by Dan-O I pre-ordered this album with five songs available. I burned through those songs like I haven’t with any album since Vampire Weekend-Father of The Bride. At the same time, My work situation got weird. I was locked in a stuffy room on a project with four people for weeks.Continue reading “#BandcampGold-Aloha by Son Little”

#Bandcampgold-The Professionals by Madlib & Oh No

#Bandcampgold-The Professionals by Madlib & Oh No by Dan-O It’s impossible to fairly discuss Madlib. If you like any of the levels of rap below pop superstardom, he is everywhere you go. He produced most of the important songs on my favorite Mos Def album (2009’s The Ecstatic) not to mention MF Doom’s high pointContinue reading “#Bandcampgold-The Professionals by Madlib & Oh No”
