    T.I. Paperwork Released 5 Years Ago Today

    T.I. has had a lengthy and legendary career spanning almost 20 years now. T.I. have released a few classics along the way and even called himself “The King of the South”. 5 years ago today, T.I. released his ninth album, Paperwork. Jeezy, Rick Ross, Chris Brown, Pharrell Williams, Trae the Truth, The Dream and the late, great Nipsey Hussle appear on the album. While Paperwork isn’t on par with albums like Trap Muzik or Urban Legend, but it’s a good project. My favorite track off the album was probably G Shit featuring Jeezy. You can peep the video for G-Shit below. The three official singles released for this album featured…

    Gang Starr Family and Loyalty With J. Cole

    First things first, rest in peace to the late, great Guru. Guru passed away in April 2010 from a long bout with cancer. Before passing, Guru released several solo projects and later formed Gang Starr with DJ Premier. Gang Starr is one of my favorite duos ever and when Guru passed, we all thought that was the end of Gang Starr. Moment of Truth is one of those albums that need to be in everyone’s collection. Royalty from Moment of Truth was featured as my Throwback Thursday track at the beginning of the year. Last week, Gang Starr premiered their first track in about 16 years. Let’s just say, it…

My first time hearing her was on Complexion off of To Pimp a Butterfly from Kendrick Lamar. Afterwards, you can say I backtracked and started to follow her. A couple years ago, Rapsody released the Laila’s Wisdom album and it was one of my favorite from 2017. This time, Rapsody dropped her name…
