Ego Death x The Internet

Summer of 2013, Mac Miller kicked off his "Space Migration" tour with opening acts on all dates, Chance the Rapper, and The Internet. I was already pretty familiar with the Odd Future affiliated group and was definitely a fan of "Purple Naked Ladies" and even more of a "Feel Good" fan. So now we're here and Ego Death is out and on a constant repeat. This album with the exception of "Partners In Crime Part Three" (because quite honestly I just did not care for this song at all) this album was damn near perfect, if there is a such thing as a perfect album. 

Because I know that I can go on and on about each and every song I'm going to pick my top two and tell why these songs made my heartrate speed up. 

  • Special Affair

First off, this song is so damn sexy. And on top of that it makes me feel sexy too. Syd's voice is like butter. The bass line is ridiculous. It's simple yet, does so much for the song. Special Affair honestly makes me wanna get a little grown and sexy. 

  • Just Saying/ I Tried

Just Saying is the ex anthem. God knows I love a good song about heartbreak, exes, love, all of that. The first half reminded me how I felt when I got my heart broken and basically was just trying to figure my shit out after.  

What makes this album so good is that it's relatable. You can pinpoint an emotion in each and every single song and go back to when you felt that way. I think The Internet has achieved the sound that they've been going for or at least on the right track to getting there. This album gets nothing but love from me.  

DS2 First Listen

So Future's highly anticipated album "DS2" dropped Friday at midnight and to say I was extremely underwhelmed is an understatement. The album started off extremely strong and then quickly lost steam with each track. A little more than halfway through I ended up just completely turning it off.

The album was super hyped, and the energy didn't follow through for me. Oversold and under delivered. There were no stand out tracks for me, so I'm not going to go into detail about everything. And this is a review strictly off of my first listen. Maybe my mindset just wasn't in the right place to appreciate it, but I will say that everyone who is saying that Future has the album of the year is delusional. Even if I do end up loving this after I go back and give it another listen, album of the year is a reach. Like...everyone really should calm down. 

I also don't go to trap music as my first choice of music so there's that. Maybe the people who got their edges completely snatched off by this album gets their hands on dirty sprite on the regular. Since I don't however, I don't understand everyone falling out over this. DS2 is okay at best, but in a few months it will be lost in the mix just like everything else that's super poppin' for a couple weeks. 

Thanks Apple Music for letting me stream this before I decided to purchase this or not!
