Mixtape Review-Jugg King by Young Scooter

Mixtape Review-Jugg King by Young Scooter by Dan-O From afar I like Young Scooter. When I think about how much trap has changed and how much Scooter’s new mixtape Jugg King is right in the pocket of F.B.G. The Movie mixtape from 2013 my overactive mind wanders. Does Scooter see these new happier trappers andContinue reading “Mixtape Review-Jugg King by Young Scooter”

Mixtape Review-In Tune We Trust by Lil Wayne

Mixtape Review-In Tune We Trust by Lil Wayne by Dan-O Looking back on what Wayne accomplished is shocking, even if you start at 2007. By the end of 2008 he had sold 2.88 million copies of Carter III and changed how pop rap albums sound forever. He created the pop mixtape market with his DedicationContinue reading “Mixtape Review-In Tune We Trust by Lil Wayne”

I wanted to provide five things to think about as you digest this mass of content. Are these in order of importance? Don’t be a nerd. No one cares.

Worst Song of The Year-Juice by Future

Worst Song of The Year-Juice by Future by Dan-O Future released his new mixtape Project E.T. it’s a DJ Esco mixtape but it’s obviously Future.  Stereogum and Pitchfork (& others) are saying that Future sounds tired. This is code. He doesn’t actually sound like he needs to catch 8 more hours under silk sheets orContinue reading “Worst Song of The Year-Juice by Future”

Street Lottery 3 by Young Scooter

Street Lottery 3 by Young Scooter by Dan-O I used to think of Young Scooter as mini-Gucci Mane, one of the many understudies the Holy Spirit of Trap (in holy trinity terms the father would be TI and the son is Jeezy) burns through on his long career. It turns out he’s a Frankenstein of Gucci andContinue reading “Street Lottery 3 by Young Scooter”

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 of The Year- Can’t Feel My Face by The Weeknd

Song of The Year- Can’t Feel My Face by The Weeknd by Dan-O I am very excited to sit back and watch all the critics who buried The Weeknd two years ago do a pirouette into Abel Tesfaye appreciation. Compare him to Michael Jackson or Prince if you want. You should never have given upContinue reading “Song of The Year- Can’t Feel My Face by The Weeknd”

Song of The Year-I Serve The Base by Future produced by Metro Boomin’

Song of The Year-I Serve The Base by Future produced by Metro Boomin’ by Dan-O I’ve disliked everything Future put out this year…on first listen. As a listener I was too accustomed to the passionate determination music. Future puts so much of himself into his flow that through the robotic vocal effect you really feelContinue reading “Song of The Year-I Serve The Base by Future produced by Metro Boomin’”

Mixtape Review-Blue Dream & Lean 2 by Juicy J

Mixtape Review-Blue Dream & Lean 2 by Juicy J by Dan-O If you don’t like Juicy J Blue Dream & Lean 2 is not going to change your mind. If you are a fan of the raucous king of repugnant imagery and gleeful mischief this is a must hear. Juicy doesn’t just give you theContinue reading “Mixtape Review-Blue Dream & Lean 2 by Juicy J”

Mixtape Review-Beast Mode by Future x Zaytoven

Mixtape Review-Beast Mode by Future x Zaytoven by Dan-O I’m incorrect but I always think of Future as an amazing raw talent. The way basketball writers must have looked at Wilt Chamberlain. He’s not raw at all. The music always feels that way because of how he attacks it. A new project roll out forContinue reading “Mixtape Review-Beast Mode by Future x Zaytoven”
