Today, September 26, 2015. Fetty Wap was involved in a motorcycle accident in New Jersey after being struck by a car while trying to pass another vehicle. Fetty has been hospitalized and his current condition is unknown. It is believed that no life threatening conditions occurred.
Fetty Wap dropped his debut self entitled album yesterday. Some are saying the accident may be a publicity stunt.

Jay Rock has been signed to TDE for 10 years. "90059" is Hip Hop at its best. If you are into lyricism and storytelling this album is worth a listen. Honestly I'm not very familiar with Jay Rock...Top Dog Entertainment artist Kendrick, ScHoolboy Q and Ab-Soul are more popular. The westcoast sound is back and I'm enjoying it. Great hearing hiphop other than trap beats. I enjoyed Sza's verse on Easy Bake. My favorite tracks are Gumbo,Vice City, Telegram and Fly on the Wall. Sadly this album may get overlooked by many.... Great work Jay Rock.
It seems as if R&B is slowly becoming non existent... Last night artist Brik gave us music lovers hope. I had the pleasure of meeting Brik once before at an R&B showcase that was held at Olde Smith Bar. Brik was with a group of artist who were chatting in the parking lot. I never miss an opportunity to meet and mingle with interesting individuals. I asked each one of the guys what they do for a living and also exchanged social media contacts. Little did I know Houston native Brik had been discovered by super producer Bryan Michael Cox via Instagram. His modesty and down to earth nature will take the talented artist high places...
During the R&B showcase "The Revival" Brik was indeed my favorite. His style also intrigued me. After browsing his IG @brik.liam he is truly an unique individual. His abstract art and candid moments are appealing and mistique. Check out a few videos I took of Brik!
19 years ago today, September 13, 1996, Tupac was killed on Las Vegas strip. Tupac's murder remains unsolved! 21 years ago today September 14, 1994 Biggie Smalls Released "Ready To Die" which is best known for its singles "Juicy" and "Big Poppa". Iconic day in hiphop.
Travis Scott is different and it works. The beginning of Rodeo was comical TI's narration for the trippy album was very amusing. After listening to the album once "Oh My Dis Side" ," 90210" , "Nightcrawler" ," Impossible" and "Applepie" are my favorite tracks. Only track on the album I skipped was "Wasted" featuring Juicy J. Some of his features include the Weeknd, Quavo, and Kanye West.
The tracks sound repetitive and the lyrics lack creativity but I''ll probably listen to Rodeo again. I'm giving it 3.5/5 stars.
