"Cy's talent as both a quick-witted wordsmith and a sharp writer is unmistakable."
GOOD Music's writing secret weapon has finally unleashed Cyhi the Prynce's long awaited debut album, No Dope on Sundays, an hour and thirteen minute ballad that is both gospel and gritty. The project is full of rhyme scheme intricacies as Cyhi relives his past of despair, and drug dealing in Atlanta.
The key to YG's popularity is his authenticity. In the land of a million studio gangsta rappers you can count on the fact that YG is as real as they come.
Rapper YG has finally released his sophomore album and yours truly couldn't be more excited as his first album My Krazy Life was my favorite album of 2014. I love the way his albums are put together and sequenced, with the production and skits putting you into YG's head and allowing you to live a day in his life. I'm not sure I've ever heard an artist that when listening to their music you're able to visualize the songs so well and it’s like you’re watching a movie. Both of his albums bring me back to the Death Row Records heyday when their releases were just so much better than anything else that's out there.
After all's said and done, EFIL4ZAGGIN is one of the most influential albums ever produced.
Today N.W.A. celebrates the 25th Anniversary of its history-making second and final full length album EFIL4ZAGGIN. The album that brought the group to the next level because of their hardcore lyrics and image behind them. It represented a lifestyle that people in the hood felt proud about and people in the suburbs wanted to achieve and it had no qualms about what it was. The life of a Gangsta and takin no shit.
Still a banger even over 20 years after.
Today has come the time to wish one of my favorite rappers, Busta Rhymes, happy 20th birthday for his solo debut album The Coming, and what a hell of first record that was!
