HipHopDx Reviews

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.

Tory Lanez - I Told You Review

Let us know when the version without the skits drops. Fourteen breaks on an album is just inexcusable.

Ka - Honor Killed The Samurai Review

The pride, the fall, the consequence and the retribution all wrapped up in one forcible package.

Nipsey Hussle - Slauson Boy 2 Review

Neighborhood Nip continues to be a necessary influence on those aspiring to up their own position.

2 Chainz - "Daniel Son; Necklace Don" Review

Even when he dials it in, Tity Boi still manages to connect.

Troy Ave - Roland Collins Review

An embattled Harry Powder can't shake the itch to fight for relevance in the rap game, despite an obvious rush job.

Slim Thug - Hogg Life Vol. 4: American King Review

The Thugga is using his rap skills to inspire this go around.

Prodigy - Untitled EDM EP Review

Thug motivation — to dance to.

Rae Sremmurd - Sremmlife 2 Review

Weekends were made for partying and this album is the Sunday before a holiday.

PARTYNEXTDOOR - P3 Review

The OVO recluse delivers his most heavy-hearted collection of R&B cuts on the third installment of his self-titled series.

DJ Khaled - Major Key Review

Just like Khaled’s infamous Snapchats, this album is only exciting for a few short intervals.

Fredo Santana - Fredo Mafia Review

All these gunshots and no hits? Something's got to give.

Mass Appeal - The Land Soundtrack Review

“The Land” is everything a typical movie soundtrack should aspire to be with cinematic stories told through popular music.

Jarren Benton - Slow Motion Vol. 2 Review

Benton's first endeavor since the Funk Volume divorce is a messy affair with about as many misses as hits.

Roy Woods - Waking At Dawn Review

The man Drake claims is “outta here like NASA” manages to get his official debut off the ground with minimal turbulence.

Phonte & Eric Roberson - Tigallerro Review

Amidst all the trapping and flexing in today’s game, Phonte and Eric Roberson slow it down for the seamless Rap&B fusion.

Gucci Mane - Everybody Looking Review

With the entire world watching, La Flare doesn't deliver the classic many had hoped for but he doesn't disappoint his core, either.

DJ Drama - Quality Street Music 2 Review

Compiling loosies from several top players in the rap game isn't the best way to ensure "quality" and this album proves it.

Lil Durk - LILDURK2X Review

Lil Durk’s sophomore album is the epitome of new-gen gangsta rap but unfortunately, lacks any distinct personality.
