Hip Hop Album: Skyzoo: Music For My Friends
Skyzoo has become a consistent MC, even when musically he goes somewhere else it’s still fits Skyzoo. Music For My Friends has guests that you want to hear spit with Skyzoo and never thought would. There isn’t a lot of boom bap but as long Skyzoo is spitting you will get bars.
Hip Hop Song: Camp Lo : Award Winning
Camp Lo dropped a good album this year, not sure how many people checked for it to be honest. One major highlight for me was “Award Winning”. The flow is sick and turn beat is nice. It’s cool to hear an iconic group that deserves more a lot credit than they get.
Non Hip Hop Album: Boney James: Future soul
First impression is that Fururesoul is a Jazz Neo Soul album bubut the term ” Neo Soul” itself is no longer a term, but there is something about this album that is grounded and soulful. At times it can get a bit elevator music sounding but jazz album doesn’t at times. It’s been a while since I’ve listened to any Boney James music and this album was a treat to listen to.
Non Hip Hop Song: Jazmine Sullivan:Forever Don’t Last
One of the most underrated artists of her generation for what ever reason. Moving past that, one thing is obvious, Jazmine Sullivan makes great slow jams. “Forever Don’t Last” takes you back to the 80’s with the soulful sound of the song. This song will be around for years. And yes I cheated with this simply because this song is too good to let go unacknowledged.
