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”

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”

Rap Radar Podcast can teach you how a song gets made. by Dan-O Rap Radar Pod has interviewed every important artist in hip hop this year (or it feels like that). During the December interview of Burna Boy he showcases the coolest accent ever. He’s got a deep voice with a Nigerian/UK combo accent. NineteenContinue reading “Rap Radar Podcast can teach you how a song gets made.”

The Greatest Name-Checker in Rap History

The Greatest Name-Checker in Rap History by Dan-O The Game put out a new album(Born 2 Rap) that is not great. He takes samples from high profile songs and says Nicki’s name a bunch because he wants to have sex with her still (he’s been saying thirsty things about Nicki for YEARS). He talks aboutContinue reading “The Greatest Name-Checker in Rap History”

My Favorite Album of 2019

My Favorite Album of 2019 by Dan-O How much do I love Jidenna? I’m not even worried about what drops in the rest of November and December. Bring Frank Ocean, Drake, bring a thousand Future features! None of it will replace the uniquely fly experience of listening to 85 To Africa. My excitement for his music mightContinue reading “My Favorite Album of 2019”

#BandcampGold-1990 by Amerigo Gazaway & Xiomara

#BandcampGold-1990 by Amerigo Gazaway & Xiomara by Dan-O I used to burn cd compilations of 90’s R & B. They were semi-notorious amongst my crew (Army stuff). I called the series “Booty Music” because the 90’s were the first decade where the music said what it meant. As richly political and social as 70’s RContinue reading “#BandcampGold-1990 by Amerigo Gazaway & Xiomara”

#SampleSnitch-Curren$y and Jay Worthy ride with The Stylistics

#SampleSnitch-Curren$y and Jay Worthy ride with The Stylistics by Dan-O The Stylistics are a huge marker in whether you’re talking to a real R & B person. Anyone who has ever heard music can monologue on the importance of Stevie Wonder or Marvin Gaye. Those are pop stars. The self-titled 1971 Stylistics album is betterContinue reading “#SampleSnitch-Curren$y and Jay Worthy ride with The Stylistics”

#Bandcampgold-Black Beans by Exile x Choosey

#Bandcampgold-Black Beans by Exile x Choosey by Dan-O The world makes us feel terrible. Mac Miller and Nipsey Hussle are dead. Ogres are in power and they don’t even lie to us about how old evil and full of greed/hate they are. Music is necessary, all kinds of music. Black Beans is a beam of light on theContinue reading “#Bandcampgold-Black Beans by Exile x Choosey”
