BIA ~ FOR CERTAIN DELUXE
Filling out what was previously too short of an album, the deluxe version of FOR CERTAIN contains some of BIA’s best raps and takes the focus away from the features. Specifically, “Can’t Touch This” and “Big Deal” with Sevyn Streeter are trunk-knocking highlights.
Zack Fox ~ shut the fuck up talking to me
Securing the highly-touted 3.6 score from Pitchfork, Zack Fox may have just dropped the greatest album of all time. With academically stimulating lines talking about how he’s shitting on other rappers so much that it’s like he’s got two butts, or punchlines that request folks to get their hands off his penis, Fox truly found his home with this album.
Wale ~ Folarin II
Rocking a more focused sound than we’ve heard from Wale in years with the exception of The Imperfect Storm, Folarin II is satisfying and easy listen that’ll comfort DC residents and longtime Wale fans.
