In the midst of Jay-Z releasing his 13th studio album “4:44“. I sense this wave of awakening spirits amongst black people. Not to say Jay is the reason for this awakening, but i think his message with this album couldn’t have came at a better time. With all that has been happening to us as people for hundreds of years, from being brutally punished and killed. To being brainwashed, it gives me a great feeling to see black people starting to take strides in being aware of the power that we hold and being aware of what is really going in this chess game called life. Jay-z came with it on this album. A song that sticks out obviously, is “The Story of O.J.”
Dr. Dre dropped probably one of the best albums of 2015 if you ask me. The new album “Compton” is great in all facets. Beats, lyrics, and features. This is album shows Dre hasn’t lost a step. 16 tracks of pure westside, which has features from Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, BJ the Chicago Kid, Xzibit and more. This album is a definitely a just grab. So go download on it iTunes now.
Limar Wilson aka L.I. Mars is the epitome of things fresh. Hailing from Orlando/Altamonte Springs, Fl, this artist was destined for the spotlight. Once a professional basketball player, he continued to impress the naysayers by living the impossible. From the courts to the stage, the ball stopped bouncing, but the people didn’t. It was obvious no one saw this career change coming. L.I. Mars music is more than the ordinary, it’s inspirational, real music that people can relate to with real life experiences.
“Started just rapping recording shit on my Apple phone. Now i’m telling my story and rapping on this microphone.”

J. Cole’s new album 2014 Forest Hill Drive, is a classic. All you have to do is press play and vibe. Real life is what you get in each song, each verse. He dropped a video for “Apparently”. Which is one my favorites on the album. He vents heavy on this track. Check out the video below and if you don’t have the album. Go out and buy the album. It’s worth every dime.
