The years 2017 and 2018 have been dubbed the reboot of the 90s. From television shows to fashion, but Hip-Hop beef? Yes, Hip-Hop beef. And no, I don’t mean that crap you yougins are used to. You new wave fans are used to Rap beef being who has the funniest meme or who went the hardest on Instagram. But thanks to Terrance Hatch aka Pusha T, the Summer is turning into 1995. Somebody please pass me my Cross Color hoodie.

Culture II (iTunes)

A 24-track Migos album is a rite of passage for a Hip-Hop lover. It’s like a triathlon for a runner. It’s a long, strenuous process that most people wouldn’t subject themselves to in one go, but those who do, honey, they are strong.

I’ve always had a soft spot in my heart for the three blind mice of rap, otherwise known as the Migos. They exploded onto the scene back in the early 2010s with their harmonious melodies and eccentric, ad-lid drenched flows. It was different and many people were drawn to their fresh perspective, myself included.

Over half a decade later, Migos is one of the biggest groups on the planet. They now get nominated for Grammys, create culturally significant singles (most notably, “Bad and Boujee“), and make incredible brand deals like this hilarious Apple’s Animoji collab that you’ve probably already seen on your Instagram feed.

What A Time To Be Alive (iTunes)

All Hail the King. No, not Drake. But the Trap King, Future. Or Future Hendrix. Future Vandross. You get it. Unless you were being proactive in your life, then you heard Future and Drake dropped an album called What A Time To Be Alive. Folks over-hyped it as usual. It has maybe two good songs, but it’s meh as a whole. And because it was meh, it got me thinking. Drake been dropping albums left and right to get off Cash Money (so obvious), but it’s the sound of these albums that I’m questioning. Not just the writing but the actually tempo and flow.
