HipHopDX reviews

Dizzy Wright - Wisdom & Good Vibes

The "Funk" may have died but Dizzy Wright still has plenty of other musical genres at his disposal.

Statik KXNG - Statik KXNG

When it comes to Statik Selektah and Crooked I, listeners know what they’re going to get. On Statik KXNG, the duo work to find a balance, stumbling – and occasionally striking gold - along the way.

Future - EVOL

There isn't much to "love" about Future's latest album but a few likes are present.

Young Thug - I'm Up

The select amount of heat on "I'm Up" should motivate Thugger not to look down anytime this year.

Boosie Badazz - Out My Feelings (In My Past)

Boosie balances introspection with good plain fun on his most multi-faceted album to date.

J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League - J.U.S.T.I.C.E. For All

For the Florida production team’s first full length album, a collection of cutting room floor tracks feels lazy despite a few gems.

Hoodie Allen - Happy Camper

Allen's sophomore effort makes satire sound pretty good.

Kevin Gates - Islah

On his studio debut, Mr. IDGT is every bit as personable as advertised on social media.

Meek Mill - 4/4 Pt. 2

Meek Mill is finally making the much ballyhooed "Drake beef" interesting.

Saul Williams - MartyrLoserKing

"MartyrLoserKing" is a protest album for the modern age.

Meek Mill - 4-4

"4-4" isn't the momentum building warm up to "Dreamchasers 4" it should have been.

Adrian Younge - Something About April II

Adrian Younge molds his finest work to date in "Something About April II."

Little Simz - Age 101: Drop X

Little Simz "Age 101: Drop X" accomplishes its mission so succinctly that its own brevity is, ultimately, the project's undoing.

Migos – Young Rich Ni$$a$ 2

Migos sticks to their recipe of dab references, trap beats and cocky rhymes on their latest mixtape, appeasing longtime fans but doing little to win new listeners.

Consequence - A Good Comeback Story

Consequence tries to put his past behind him on "A Good Comeback Story."

The-Dream - Genesis

The-Dream's high-concept visual album "Genesis," a Tidal exclusive, is compelling as the music and visuals duel each other for prominence.

Future - Purple Reign

Future's "Purple Reign" see's the Atlanta superstar returning to his pre-"Monster" roots.

Lecrae - Church Clothes 3

"Church Clothes 3" continues Lecrae's expansion as an artist.

Torae - Entitled

The Brooklyn emcee continues to be more in-tuned with his inner voice than ever while remaining lyrically sharp.

Anderson .Paak - Malibu

Anderson .Paak delivers on the hype with "Malibu."

Cozz - Nothin Personal

Cozz’s newest mixtape is a step in the right direction, but falls short of anything totally ground-breaking.

PRhyme - PRhyme (Reissue)

PRhyme’s re-release of 2014’s classic delivers everything we love about the original and then some, despite its short additional run time.

Murs & 9th Wonder - Brighter Daze

"Brighter Daze" is a nearly perfect example of Hip Hop at its purest.

Timbaland - King Stays King

As pop “king” Timbaland trumpets his regality, a celebratory mixtape feels like he’s an emperor parading around on the Internet in new clothes.
