Song Review-Same As by Marc E Bassy featuring Mozzy

Song Review-Same As by Marc E Bassy featuring Mozzy by Dan-O Marc E Bassy cannot become a pop star with pop songs. I’ve heard every project he’s ever made including his new independent album PMD. When he makes pop songs they don’t have any character and feel like they could have been written or performed by any numberContinue reading “Song Review-Same As by Marc E Bassy featuring Mozzy”

#Bandcampgold-Green Parakeet Suite by Davis

 #Bandcampgold-Green Parakeet Suite by Davis by Dan-O Chance The Rapper mocks 90’s hardcore hip hop in a way that ruffles my feathers. He clowns 90’s Gangsta Rap for being full of phony tough guys acting the part. He’s making the point that being genuinely silly or conscious is better than being artificially thug but that’sContinue reading “#Bandcampgold-Green Parakeet Suite by Davis”

Song of The Year-Shake It by Charli XCX featuring Big Freedia, Cupcakke, Brooke Candy and Pabllo Vittar

Song of The Year-Shake It by Charli XCX featuring Big Freedia, Cupcakke, Brooke Candy and Pabllo Vittar by Dan-O Without question XCX is my favorite pop entity. She is as dedicated to what was considered tawdry or profane as she is dance pop. As a creator she greatly enjoys lulling you into a trance andContinue reading “Song of The Year-Shake It by Charli XCX featuring Big Freedia, Cupcakke, Brooke Candy and Pabllo Vittar”

Three Big Winners from Rapsody’s Eve album

Three Big Winners from Rapsody’s Eve album by Dan-O Albums-With an aggregate score on Metacritic of 91 out of a 100 Rapsody’s new album Eve is not consummable in pop music chunks. While it is sixty two minutes and fifty seven seconds long It is so heavily thematic that every song acts as a vital puzzle piece in theContinue reading “Three Big Winners from Rapsody’s Eve album”

#Bandcampgold-Best U.K. Albums of 2019

#Bandcampgold-Best U.K. Albums of 2019 by Dan-O As Americans we too often turn a blind eye to other countries contributions to artistic forms we start. This is odd because the world often welcomes our contributions(Kurasawa turned Westerns into Samurai movies and we turned that into Star Wars). U.K. rap has gone through its own growthContinue reading “#Bandcampgold-Best U.K. Albums of 2019”

Song review-Nipsey by Trae The Truth

Song review-Nipsey by Trae The Truth by Dan-O I do not feel well. Generally, I am not a neurotic person. My mind is something I manage assertively but the beat on Trae The Truth’s song Nipsey sounds like the buzzing in my head ever since Nip passed. The light piano is the ever-present weeping ofContinue reading “Song review-Nipsey by Trae The Truth”

Song of The Year-Wolf Mode by Chris Rivers

Song of The Year-Wolf Mode by Chris Rivers by Dan-O When talking about Noname a friend of mine made the argument that while her follow up album was very good(Room 25), she will likely spend her career measured against the song Casket Pretty from her first album (Telefone). This isn’t about producing an insurmountable hit. Casket Pretty is a hushedContinue reading “Song of The Year-Wolf Mode by Chris Rivers”

#MarkTheDate-May The Super MC Super Producer Full Album Never Die

#MarkTheDate-May The Super MC Super Producer Full Album Never Die by Dan-O Two very important albums by legendary producer-rapper pairings have been announced. Both are scheduled to come out soon but not soon enough. Both are coming out on Mello Music Group who tomorrow will release an album by Big Pun’s son Chris Rivers.  #MarkTheDate is designedContinue reading “#MarkTheDate-May The Super MC Super Producer Full Album Never Die”

#Bandcampgold-That’s The World by Anti-Lilly and Phoniks

#Bandcampgold-That’s The World by Anti-Lilly and Phoniks by Dan-O Being a philosophical person isn’t that fun. It’s thousands of persisting strands of concern intersecting and reproducing. This is part of the reason that dumb rappers tend to make albums that are more fun (depends on how you define fun). Fake deep hits the listeners sweetContinue reading “#Bandcampgold-That’s The World by Anti-Lilly and Phoniks”

My Second Book Means Everything

My Second Book Means Everything by  Dan-O I was raised to believe it is all a badly told lie. My father was put in jail by a police force that never was there to help him when gangs abused him. He wasn’t shy about sharing his experiences. I was pulled from class for shouting to myContinue reading “My Second Book Means Everything”
