Audio Push Make Inland Empire Proud With Debut "90951"

A harmonious mix of peace, positivity and pretty slick rhymes on the Cali duo's overdue debut

Danny Brown Goes Comfortably Numb On "Atrocity Exhibition"

Very few rappers —scratch that — very few artists can do the backstroke in the brain fluid of their own chemical imbalance. Danny Phelps delivers once again for those listeners brave off enough to dive off the deep end.

Jay IDK - The Empty Bank Review

Cash in on knowledge of self.

OG Maco - Blvk Phil Collins Review

All things considered, the project is pretty good for a rush job but would obviously fare better with more calculation.

Chinx - Legends Never Die Review

Team Chinx did what they could but this release won't make the slain Coke Boy legendary by any means.

Kid Ink - Rocketshipshawty 2 Review

Even by allegedly taking it “back to the basics” with a mixtape, Kid Ink can’t help but make the same hit seeking music over and over.

From The Archives: Lupe Fiasco's Food & Liquor Gets A Perfect 5.0 Rating

Ten years later, the Emperor can still look back at his soundtrack with admiration and awe.

T.I. - Us Or Else Review

As a father, husband, brother and Black man living in America, Clifford Harris is using his well-earned platform to open everyone's eyes. Stay woke.

Preaching positivity, one glass of water at a time.

Michael Christmas & Prefuse 73 a.k.a. Fudge - Lady Parts Review

With this Gnarls Barkley style release, Fudge aims to be something greater than the sum of Michael Christmas and Prefuse 73.

Kent Jones - Too Much Too Soon Review

The We The Best’s rapper/singer/producer cleverly displays his artistic ambidexterity despite a small sense of unoriginality.

Mac Miller - The Divine Feminine Review

An overtly sexual serenade, liberal in its passion but too conservative in its vulnerability.

La Flame’s sophomore project goes off without a hitch and proves to be one of the best trap soundscapes this year.

Isaiah Rashad - The Sun's Tirade Review

No sophomore slump here.

De La Soul - And The Anonymous Nobody Review

And the Anonymous Nobody is a formidable, albeit dissonant, batch of tunes. Just like all their albums.

Young Thug - Jeffery Review

All gimmicks aside, Young Thug is finally emerging as a viable artist across the board.

Vince Staples - Prima Donna Review

The story of a rap career turned disastrous.

Lil Bibby - Big Buckz Review

The gruff-voiced free crack supplier continues his streak as the most lyrically proficient of the Drill explosion regardless of his overly repetitive themes of paranoia.

Atmosphere - Fishing Blues Review

Intentionally humdrum yet somewhat satisfying.

Frank Ocean - Blonde Review

Boys have a ton of emotions.

French Montana - MC4 Review

By pulling back on the "haaaaaan"s and putting a little more time into crafting better songs, French does a modest job at keeping listeners invested.
