“November” Album Review

One year after SiR officially signed to Top Dawg Entertainment, November has arrived.

 

The album is already receiving praise from TDE fans and critics alike. The 31-year-old Inglewood artist, SiR, blends aspects of soul and r&b with a modern, dark twist. Other than two features from ScHoolboy Q and Etta Bond, November is SiR’s project which allows the listener to really become acquainted with the artist.

 

Even if you’re not a big r&b fan, November is definitely worth checking out. Any fan of TDE would appreciate the album’s complexity.

New Drake EP

Last night, Drizzy Drake released an EP, Scary Hours, which comprises of two tracks.

 

The first song, “God’s Plan,” has all the aspects of a Drake song that you’d expect. The second, “Diplomatic Immunity,” has more of an orchestral vibe to it. I’m not a huge fan of Drake because he usually doesn’t put much thought into his lyrics, but “Diplomatic Immunity” pleasantly surprised me. It’s basically four and a half minutes of Drake venting over a well-made instrumental.

New Russ Track “Alone”

Russ is kicking off the new year the right way. After releasing a new music video last week for “Flip” (which I wasn’t a fan of), Russ comes through with another track. This time, the song’s production was handled by frequent collaborator, Scott Storch.

The retro, 80’s, synthesizer euro-pop style instrumental pairs perfectly with Russ’s signature vocals creating a sort of etherial electronic pop sound.

Justin Timberlake “Supplies” Video

With Man of the Woods on the horizon, Timberlake comes through with another single from his upcoming album. This Neptunes-produced track is a great follow-up to “Filthy” which was released earlier this month.

Dave East Releases “Paranoia 2”

After much anticipation, Harlem rapper, Dave East, comes through with the sequel to his Paranoia project.

 

Last year, he released Paranoia: A True Story. Three months later, he gave us another mixtape, titled Karma. This year, Dave East’s keeping the momentum going by dropping Paranoia 2 (along with announcing an accompanying tour).

 

The album features appearances from Tory Lanez, T.I., Lloyd Banks, and many more. I definitely think this is his strongest project yet. Standout tracks include “Talk to Big”, “Corey”, “Thank You”, “What Made Me”, “Never Been”, and “Grateful” (although some other songs were amazing too). East’s harsh vocals and fantastic storytelling ability remind me of legends like 50 Cent and Game.

New Action Bronson Single

Action Bronson covers Mary J. Blige’s 1994 track “I’m Goin’ Down” as part of Spotify’s Singles series.

 

Bronson’s not a singer, nor does he pretend to be, so this rendition’s simply him having fun in the studio. It’s enjoyable to listen to Action cover a song that’s so outside of his vocal range.

 

Listen to the cover and let me know what you think.

Black Eyed Peas Making a Comeback?

Finally, Black Eyed Peas returned to their roots!

The group’s new song “Street Living” has socially conscious lyricism similar to “Where is the Love?“. “Street Living” is a statement about Black America, which has been a hot issue lately in the media. The video is a bit strange, featuring a montage of famous historical photographs lip-syncing the words, but I try not to let the video affect my opinion of the song. I think this is the best music to come from the Black Eyed Peas since Elephunk (2003). No disrespect to “London Bridge” (obviously).
