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-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”

Sample Snitch: The exciting G Funk perfection of All Eyez On Me

Sample Snitch: The exciting G Funk perfection of All Eyez On Me by Dan-O All Eyez On Me is the best double album in the history of hip hop. That is not a hot take.  If you listen very carefully it is not the dark foreboding cryptic record Makaveli is perceived to be. It isContinue reading “Sample Snitch: The exciting G Funk perfection of All Eyez On Me”

The case for Schoolboy Q as a top 3 lyricist in 2018

The case for Schoolboy Q as a top 3 lyricist in 2018 by Dan-O I’m not doing the “he’s no Kool Moe Dee” all time argument with you Fuzzy Kangol Truthers. Save his place in history for later down the line right now we are talking about right now. The other thing to get out ofContinue reading “The case for Schoolboy Q as a top 3 lyricist in 2018”

Mixtape review-41-P by Payroll Giovanni

Mixtape review-41-P by Payroll Giovanni by Dan-O Payroll Giovanni is my kind of MC. Mentally he is tougher than shark skin with a flow that can speedbag the beat to impressive levels. The other thing to love about the thirty year old rapper from Detroit is that he’s always working and its good smart work.  HisContinue reading “Mixtape review-41-P by Payroll Giovanni”

Song Review-Mi Encanta by Husalah

Song Review-Mi Encanta by Husalah by Dan-O I love the new Husalah album H the way I love watching Jason Statham carve through the world in Transporter 2. It is a lot of fun and more than a bit silly.  He says bitch four or five times more than is logistically manageable (to say nothingContinue reading “Song Review-Mi Encanta by Husalah”

Song review-Goyard by Lil Debbie produced by Kid Class

Song review-Goyard by Lil Debbie produced by Kid Class by Dan-O I will be forgiven for not being all in on Lil Debbie when she popped. She came about during that big 2011 White Girl Mob mess that spawned V-Nasty & Kreayshawn.  She came in the game as a tiny white girl with a pronouncedContinue reading “Song review-Goyard by Lil Debbie produced by Kid Class”

Song of The Year-G.R.E.E.D. by Berner produced by Scott Storch

Song of The Year-G.R.E.E.D. by Berner produced by Scott Storch by Dan-O As a hip hop fan I feel like Berner is one of those good friends I check in with from time to time. He’s always doing well. Most of the time having a great time with a killer guest list.  No one hasContinue reading “Song of The Year-G.R.E.E.D. by Berner produced by Scott Storch”

#Bandcampgold-G-Worthy(G-Perico & Jay Worthy) produced by Cardo

#Bandcampgold-G-Worthy (G-Perico & Jay Worthy) produced by Cardo by Dan-O Can I tell you what separates Cardo from his peers at the very top of hip hop production? The Neptunes make anyone sound cool from Kelis to Timberlake to Pusha and Malice to Britney Spears. Not everyone sounds cool on a Cardo beat. Cardo beatsContinue reading “#Bandcampgold-G-Worthy(G-Perico & Jay Worthy) produced by Cardo”
