2019 Music Must Listen

  1. Revenge of The Dreamers 3: Although I’m just catching up on these album series I’m still anxious for this project. Cole has been sounding hungry on his last couple of records like his feature on A lot and his song Middle Child. I’m ready for this album. I have been listening to his artists like Ari Lennox, Cozz, Bas and J.I.D and I haven’t been disappointed.
  2. I don’t even know if this will still happen. But the Meek Mill and Nipsey Hussle album that was rumored to be happening before his untimely demise. R.I.P Nipsey Hussle by the way. True legend on his albums. Also a true legend to his community.
  3. Views From The General’s Helmet By Montana Of 300 is a must. All of his projects have been amazing so far. I know this will be even better.
  4. Trapstar Turnt Popstar By PNB Rock. One of the newer artists albums that I have been so patiently waiting for. He sings and raps and has a melodic like singing and rapping flow that I love to hear. As well as just his singing on records like selfish and misunderstood and every song on Going Thru The Motions. Which I would recommend you listen to.
  5. Cardi B Album: Her last album was fire and I know she won’t disappoint. She’s slowly creeping into my top 5 female rappers list.

5 Underrated Artists

J. Cole: This one is a real argument because I believe he won’t get the recognition he deserves as a lyricist. It’s always two or 3 other artists out above him and I really don’t see the comparison. I may be biased because he’s my favorite artist but I believe he’s the top rapper in the industry as of right now.

Montana Of 300: Always and forever underrated. I think it’s because he won’t sign a deal. I don’t blame him though it’s like signing up to get robbed. When you put in all the work but somehow they get a bigger cut because their name is behind you. Also when it comes to having bars he is unmatched.

Russ: Same as Montana really. Also, some confuse his music with his supposed cockiness. I mean why not flaunt that you do it all on your own. Just like when someone shows off jewelry if you got it why not.

Hopsin: I don’t know why his name is not bigger. The flows plus his creative storytelling is one in a million. If you haven’t listened to him, I advise you do.

NF: His Music is a little emotional but it’s his real life. Just listen to How Could You Leave Us and you’ll see what I’m referring to. By the way, great music to write to.

Top 5 Favorite: Songs

I’m a hip-hop fanatic so expect hip hop songs. Maybe on a later date, I will have some other genres of music on my list but for now, these are my top favorite songs. My list changes from time to time so for now this is what I have.

 

Lost Ones by J. Cole

The flow he came with on this record was memorable. The story was perfect and it was so relatable as it could have been about anyone’s situation.  I have heard storytelling songs before but he took the extra mile when he took his voice to a higher pitch to match the woman’s tone. That inspires my poetry every day. It really showed me not to have any limits when creating. //ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?ServiceVersion=20070822&OneJS=1&Operation=GetAdHtml&MarketPlace=US&source=ac&ref=qf_sp_asin_til&ad_type=product_link&tracking_id=kexum-20&marketplace=amazon&region=US&placement=B005OKV230&asins=B005OKV230&linkId=3b39104578e392053a3546bf4a1d56c2&show_border=false&link_opens_in_new_window=false&price_color=333333&title_color=0066C0&bg_color=FFFFFF“>Lost Ones

Stan By Eminem ft Dido 

Ths is one of my top favorites just because of the delivery. It was so interesting, the crazed fan that took out his own impregnated girlfriend was so poised. The switch between characters didn’t even feel real. The video put everything on display. Even without the video, you can just picture everything in your head by the way the song was put together. Just simply art at its best. //ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?ServiceVersion=20070822&OneJS=1&Operation=GetAdHtml&MarketPlace=US&source=ac&ref=qf_sp_asin_til&ad_type=product_link&tracking_id=kexum-20&marketplace=amazon&region=US&placement=B000VWGZJ2&asins=B000VWGZJ2&linkId=96191f76689f0f5219f51f1f341ec6ee&show_border=false&link_opens_in_new_window=false&price_color=333333&title_color=0066c0&bg_color=ffffff“>Stan

 

I’m on one by Dj Khaled ft Drake, Rick Ross, and Lil Wayne 

I  love this song but I really don’t know why. It was just so chill and smooth when I listen to it. Its one of those songs you just love but can’t put the feeling it gives you into words.

Hope by Ace Hood

One of the most underrated songs he ever created. The flow he had on this was simply amazing.  You should give it a listen. It’s a must-have on my gym playlist. //ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?ServiceVersion=20070822&OneJS=1&Operation=GetAdHtml&MarketPlace=US&source=ac&ref=qf_sp_asin_til&ad_type=product_link&tracking_id=kexum-20&marketplace=amazon&region=US&placement=B00DRA0J5G&asins=B00DRA0J5G&linkId=a9a68e09de8b5930402182f100fa83db&show_border=false&link_opens_in_new_window=false&price_color=333333&title_color=0066c0&bg_color=ffffff“>Hope

Sorry by Joyner Lucas

I love a good story. The story of a friend killing themselves because of issues they felt like they couldn’t resolve. It really opened eyes to how others are affected by your suicide death and how it makes others feel especially someone like your friend. If you haven’t heard this song I recommend it to the highest point. //ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?ServiceVersion=20070822&OneJS=1&Operation=GetAdHtml&MarketPlace=US&source=ac&ref=qf_sp_asin_til&ad_type=product_link&tracking_id=kexum-20&marketplace=amazon&region=US&placement=B01K17NYD6&asins=B01K17NYD6&linkId=786967532183b9ddefab7a6f001f852d&show_border=false&link_opens_in_new_window=false&price_color=333333&title_color=0066c0&bg_color=ffffff“>Sorry
