Okay so look man. Young Thug just turned himself in to the cops in Dekalb County, Georgia. There was a warrant out for his arrest, for something like 8 separate drug charges (though it’s incredibly important to note that these all stem from him being pulled over for an illegally tinted window a year ago,…

Mason Ramsey “Famous EP” Review

By:

Before we get started: Yes. This is, in fact, the Walmart yodeling kid. Basically, this kid, Mason Ramsey, has a new project. It’s been approximately 4 and a half months since he went viral singing Hank William’s “Lovesick Blues.” Since then he’s been on Ellen, sang at the Grand Ole Opry, and showed up at…

It’s the squeak, that’s the first thing. The strain in his voice over high open-vowel sounds, Lil Reek sounds a lot younger than he is. He’s not old though.

Dieuson Octave is Kodak Black, a 20-year-old Broward County rapper, two years older than I am. He’s been in and out of jail and the court system since I was a high school freshman.

Back in 2015, Quavo, leader and migos-est member of Migos, alerted the world “Gangsta rap is back.” This came off of Yung Rich Nation, the middle release of the YRN trilogy, and the capstone to the purified Atlanta-gangster rap the group had been developing since 2013. Before Cardi B, before Culture, before “Bad and Boujee,”…

Broward County: Gucci Gang and Yeezus

By:

Audio mixing is a fairly benign element of a song’s form in contemporary-pop music.
