Song of The Year-Palmolive Featuring Pusha T and Killer Mike produced by Madlib by Freddie Gibbs by Dan-O In 2014 when Madlib and Freddie Gibbs produced Pinata I thought the two were magnificently matched.

Mixtape Review-Drunk Uncle by N.O.R.E.

Mixtape Review-Drunk Uncle by N.O.R.E. by Dan-O I am a pretty passionate hip hop head. I hate pet peeve artists I’ve never met worse than family or friends that have slighted me, but I’ve never really had an opinion on N.O.R.E. Never been able to call him wack because he swings in on tracks andContinue reading “Mixtape Review-Drunk Uncle by N.O.R.E.”

Three Reasons to Bang Ric Flair by Killer Mike

Three Reasons to Bang Ric Flair by Killer Mike by Dan-O Killer Mike is front and center as a loud and proud community voice. The first hip hop name anyone calls to interview about a political issue.

EP review-OTR2SJ by Scotty ATL

EP review-OTR2SJ by Scotty ATL by Dan-O My blood boils when I hear censored music. By the time the 90’s came around I was arguing with my parents for the permission to listen to rap music.

Chance the Rapper-Acid Rap mixtape review

Chance the Rapper-Acid Rap mixtape review by Dan-O Acid Rap is a startling first listen. I guess the prerequisite is being able to enjoy the playfully childish nasally delivery Chance the Rapper brings to every song. If you do, every verse comes out as an amorphous blob that seems like it could end and becomeContinue reading “Chance the Rapper-Acid Rap mixtape review”
