Mixtape Review-MMM by Diddy

Mixtape Review-MMM by Diddy by Dan-O Diddy is a human tapeworm. His musical career is characterized by the systematic withdrawal of artistic vitality from those he worked with; G. Dep, Black Rob, Shyne, Loon, Craig Mack and on and on. The distaste I have for Diddy is both cavernous and voluminous in ways that shouldContinue reading “Mixtape Review-MMM by Diddy”

Song Review-I Got Money by Raekwon featuring A$AP Rocky produced by S1

Song Review-I Got Money by Raekwon featuring A$AP Rocky produced by S1 by Dan-O Raekwon’s 2015 album could be called Raekwon and Friends(it’s called Fly International Luxurious Art) for all the guests it carries (12 guests 13 total tracks) and a lot of reviewers have pointed out that its disjointed and not The Chef’s bestContinue reading “Song Review-I Got Money by Raekwon featuring A$AP Rocky produced by S1”

EP review-Sinatra by Vado

EP review-Sinatra by Vado by Dan-O I’ve been doing a lot of traveling recently and getting deep into the mixtapes of the year. Some stand up as glorious and possibly even better than when they came out. Others lose their polish. Sinatra came out earlier in the year and while it was great, everything VadoContinue reading “EP review-Sinatra by Vado”

Mixtape Review-Stay Black 2 by Black Dave

Mixtape Review-Stay Black 2 by Black Dave by Dan-O NY radio personalities disingenuously perpetually ponder the state of NY hip hop and its difficulties. If the 5 Boroughs have a problem at all it’s this over thinking. When a new artist with talent comes out of NY his talent isn’t even that exciting the localContinue reading “Mixtape Review-Stay Black 2 by Black Dave”

Mixtape Review-CMG presents Chapter One by Young Gotti & CMG

Mixtape Review-CMG presents Chapter One by Young Gotti & CMG by Dan-O One of the sticky notes slapped on the surface of Southern Hip Hop is the stars that shine brightest rocket upward only to fall into obscurity once the prevailing tide changes or the hit gets old. It’s impossible to make this argument workContinue reading “Mixtape Review-CMG presents Chapter One by Young Gotti & CMG”

Free EP Review- The Stage by Curren$y & Smoke Dza produced by Harry Fraud

Free EP Review- The Stage by Curren$y & Smoke Dza produced by Harry Fraud by Dan-O As a supporter of the Jet Life movement I’ve always been realistic. Like most prolific artists Curren$y can sound listless at times; possibly a product of doing too much or the constant experimenting with different collaborators and producers. SometimesContinue reading “Free EP Review- The Stage by Curren$y & Smoke Dza produced by Harry Fraud”

Mixtape Review-Dreamchasers 3 by Meek Mill

Mixtape Review-Dreamchasers 3 by Meek Mill by Dan-O The Dreamchasers series of mixtapes have all seemed like big screen blockbusters that almost hit the mark. Something like the Oceans series with stars everywhere, slick lush backdrops but something missing. That something in my eyes was always cohesion. You could mark out the first two DreamchasersContinue reading “Mixtape Review-Dreamchasers 3 by Meek Mill”

Mixtape Review-Vado- Slime Flu 4

Mixtape Review-Vado- Slime Flu 4 by Dan-O If New York hip hop is in recovery it’s a relatively joyless one. While people like Ka and Roc Marciano release great music, the popular sound of New York is the practiced and insincere NY trap of A$ap Ferg and the like. In the world of mixtapes weContinue reading “Mixtape Review-Vado- Slime Flu 4”

French Montana-Ma​c & Cheese 3 mixtape review

French Montana-Ma​c & Cheese 3 mixtape review  by Dan-O French Montana’s new mixtape Mac & Cheese 3 might be the most aptly named tape of the year. It’s cheap, digestible, and enjoyable even, but not at all your best food possibility (in a financial boon).  Montana makes the best case for guilty pleasure an artistContinue reading “French Montana-Ma​c & Cheese 3 mixtape review”
