Albums you should be blasting on your aux cords.

Friday, October 27th, 2017



As you may all know, this season has been filled with plenty of new music . From new album releases of artists like G Herbo and Gucci Mane to rising artists like Daniel Caesar and Snoh ALegra, we have gotten a great dose of music that just so happens to not be stopping anytime soon. Three albums in particular that have our attention comes from three different artists with three different directions. Here are three of the latest albums you need to get into :


When it comes to  Big K.R.I.T, you can always expect to hear a crazy flow with raw sound that reminds you that the influence of  the dirty south on music  is nothing to overlook. Back in 2015, the Mississippi native released his second studio album entitled Cadillactica post releasing one of my favorite mixtapes of all time See  Me On Top 4. Luckily for us, the rapper released his third album overnight entitled 4eva Is A Mighty Long Time. The project takes on a more personal perspective than his previous album and features ranging artists  from T.I, UGK, and Ceelo to Sleepy Brown, Lloyd, the legendary Pharrell  and many more. In addition to releasing the album, K.R.I.T also had his Nike Air More Money kicks customized by the theme of the album that clearly had him shook when he received them. But how could you not be moved ?  If we were him, we would have much to celebrate too. Be sure to peep Big K.R.I.T latest album by clicking here.

This season, we’ve seen plenty of R&B albums but I think we’ve all been waiting for Ty Dolla $ign to release Beach House 3 and luckily for us, it’s finally here. The singer’s previous Beach House projects were great, but now that there is a third, we have something to not only be excited about but sing our hearts out while gliding down the streets of South LA.  Along with the album consisting of Ty and YG‘s collaborative single  ” Ex” (Stream via Apple) , the album features contributing artists such as Lil Wayne, Future, Swae Lee,  MadeInTYO, Pharrell, Torey Lanez,  Damien Marley, Skrillex, Jeremih, and Lauren Jaregui . Be sure to blast his latest  album, available on all platforms.
It seems like PARTYNEXTDOOR always working rather it’s writing other artists’ music or working on his own . Earlier this year, Party released his 4-track EP entitled Colours 2 and released his previous album P3 last year  . This time around, Party is back with his very introspective new EP entitled Seven Days out now through Spotify & Apple Music . The EP in which dropped late last month includes his single “Damage” featuring Halsey & “Better Man” featuring Rick Ross in addition to five other melodic tracks. Peep how Party bridges both his “Bad Intentions” with his inner vulnerability on his latest album here.
It’s no secret that music thus far this season has became the gift that just keeps giving . In addition to these albums , some projects that are just as worthy of checking out include Morning After by DVSN , Sonder’s Son by Brent Faiyaz, Feelings by Snoh Aalegra, Mr. Davis by Gucci Mane, G Hebro’s Humble Beast,  The Bigger Artist by A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie , Super Slimey by Future and Young Thug, Take Me Apart by Kelela, Trip by Jhene Aiko, About Time by Sabrina Claudio, The OOZ by King Krule, and more are definitely sure to come.

Social Status x Everything Boisterous 2000s Charity Party

Thursday, October 26th, 2017

Recently I had the opportunity to collaborate with Social Status to throw a 2000s charity party where we embraced not only the 2000s, the du-rags, a great era of music, and partying BUT also giving back. This party was created through my blog to facilitate charity and the desire to contribute to the victims of Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Irma, and Hurricane Maria . I created this event because I wanted my first blog party to turn up with purpose and because I’ve always wanted to combine the two things I love which is anything 2000s influences (from the fashions to the music) and giving back and its safe to say that I succeeded. Thank you Social Status for the opportunity to collect not only money but clothing, sneakers, and toiletries for the victims who are in need of it. Let’s continue to make a difference. Check out the recap video below and some of the epic photos of the guests street stylin’ in their 2000s attire taken during the event, captured by photographer Marcus Benton, below:
