Like most sophomore albums Scremmlife 2 failed to impress me. Although Swae Lee is a proclaimed industry song writer Scremmlife 2 lacked lyrical content. In comparison to Rae Sremmurd's debut album Scremmlife, Scremmlife 2 sounded more like a mixtape. Despite my somewhat dissatisfaction for Scremmlife 2 there are still a few bangers. Some of the features include Bobo Swae, Kodak Black, Lil Jon, Gucci Mane and Juicy J.
My favorite tracks on Scremmlife 2 are By Chance, Look Alive, Black Beatles, Came a long way and Swang.
I give Scremmlife 2 7/10 stars.
Im giving Tory Lanez debut album "I told you" 5.5/10 stars and here's why:
I've listened to all of Tory Lanez mixtapes and enjoyed each one. There's no doubt the Toronto native is very talented. Very few artist can sing, rap and write their own music. Lanez is an rnb singer, gangster rapper and reggae artist all wrapped in one. Sadly, Lanez debut album I told you did not exhibit his talents. For starters there were way too many skits. I found the skits to be quite distracting and included too much commentary. Tory Lanez gives us a glimpse of his life when he was sixteen years old and started rapping. The album includes 28 tracks, 14 tracks which are skits. I would have enjoyed hearing more tracks with Lanez singing and rapping instead of just one or the other. Unlike his Toronto counterpart Drake, Lanez has not found a balance in his music. In addition Tory Lanez fails to impress with chorus, his hooks are not catchy. Most of the songs on the album were repetitive and lacked individuality. The album did not provide a different listening experience.
Heres what I liked:
I enjoyed tracks 4. Guns and Roses. Track 6. Flex 10. 4am flex 21. Loners Blvd 25. Say It.
Check out Tory Lanez videos for Luv & Say it which are also songs featured on the album
We have seen pictures of O'Shea Jackson Jr and DC Young Fly circulating the web, which claim they would be starring in one last installment of Friday. Pictures show OShea as Craig and DC Young Fly as Chris Tucker's character "Smokey". Sadly Ice Cube set the record straight on his verified Twitter account, there will not be a "Last Friday". Ice Cube won't mess up a classic.
Drake decided it was a good idea to continue taking shots at Meek Mill during the Summer Sixteen tour in Meek Mill's hometown Philly. Meek Mill got word of Drake dissing him and of course took his feelings to social media, Instagram. Meek Mill initially posted the picture below then decided to delete it.
According to social media several of Meek Mill's "goons" confronted Drake after the show. A group of guys were seen outside the concert gates at Wells Fargo Center. It's not confirmed if they were affiliated with Meek Mill.
Finally... Frank Ocean drops some new music and get this, he even included a 45 minute visual to accompany what we've been missing. Endless is not the long awaited Frank Ocean album and according to numerous tabloids Frank Ocean album will no longer be titled "Boys Don't Cry". Check out Endless on Apple Music...
Frank Ocean's long awaited album "Boys don't cry" was set to release August 5th, 2016. Still no album upload or any leaks... According to Twitter a rumor about a November released date has surfaced. Frank released Channel Orange July 10, 2012 and since then fans everywhere have been patiently waiting for new music from the artist. I just hope Frank Ocean doesn't pull a Lauryn Hill number and only give us one album this lifetime! We love you Frank but this has got to stop GIVE US A DAMN ALBUM.
