Kanye West - My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy

Thousand of words have already been written in hopes of solving the human Rubik’s Cube that is Kanye West. Why? Why does the most influential artist of our generation so routinely devolve into juvenile self-destruction?... Read Full Review

Nicki Minaj - Pink Friday

Hip-hop has never been more Republican. The game’s always fueled intense debate – who’s better, LL Cool J or Canibus? Who’s hotter, Lil Kim or Foxy Brown? Whose man boobs are bigger, Rick Ross or Fat Joe? - but in... Read Full Review

R. Kelly - Love Letter

R. Kelly is more than an artist, he’s a writer’s dream. Now that Michael has passed, he’s the most fascinating man in music, an artist whose overwhelming talent has created a bubble around him in which the rules of... Read Full Review

Ghostface Killah - Apollo Kids

Phrases like “best rappers alive” and “most underrated” are so overused in hip-hop, subject to such neverending and vague debate, that they’ve essentially lost their meanings. But if we’re talking about Ghostface... Read Full Review

David Banner & 9th Wonder - Death of a Pop Star

True story. David Banner was reading my review of his previous album, in which I said that his music, which constantly vacillated between strip club ready anthems and politically charged manifestos, often sounded at war with... Read Full Review

Talib Kweli - Gutter Rainbows

Talib Kweli will never make better albums than Black Star and Train of Thought. Or more accurately, he may make better albums, he may already have, but I’ll never think so. Music doesn’t exist in a vacuum, it’s not some... Read Full Review

T.I. - No Mercy

If there's any argument I get into over and over again with DJBooth Nation, it’s over who has the best beard in rap (how could you not go Freeway?!?). But if there’s another argument I get into over and over, it’s the... Read Full Review

jazmine-sullivan-love-me-back-11171001

Jazmine Sullivan - Love Me Back

Hundreds of artists across every genre and medium have threatened to retire, almost none have. In fact, Dave Chapelle’s “mental breakdown that eventually became a de facto retirement” aside, I can’t think of a single... Read Full Review

skewby-more-or-less-01191101

Skewby - More or Less

For a music that holds onto the concept of “realness” so tightly, hip-hop is very rarely real. Putting aside those whose tales of drug kingpin grandeur and private jet flights border on psychiatrically diagnosable... Read Full Review

Jarren Benton Meets SMKA: Huffing Glue With Hasslehoff

I didn’t realize it until I finished my first pass through Jarren Benton’s new, fantastically titled album, Huffing Glue With Hasslehoff, but music hasn’t been fun in a long time. I’ve hated music, I’ve loved music,... Read Full Review
