Rising Dublin rapper RUNOFFBROKE is back with his fifth single of the year – but it’s not what you’d expect. That’s because this time, RUNOFFBROKE is all loved up, kinda. On, “Wish You Knew”, RUNOFFBROKE oozes confidence and delivers his usual effortless flow. This time however, he does so against a beat that combines influencesContinue reading “RUNOFFBROKE: Wish You Knew”
I make no qualms about it, I know nothing about rap. I don’t really seek it out either. However, that doesn’t mean that the odd artist or album doesn’t squeeze into my weekly listen (Kevin Federline, Dee Dee King)… This week it’s RUNOFFBROKE. The Dublin native recently returned from two years in Berlin where heContinue reading “Time to catch up with RUNOFFBROKE?”
‘ye’ is the latest release from Kanye West. I didn’t have much interest in his last two records but I do like this one. Sure, it’s still West calling himself a “superhero” but he also discusses drugs and his mental health issues. All to the sound of his often brash, often rough beats. ‘ye’debuted atContinue reading “Kanye West-ye”
Alright. I might be inviting ridicule for this one but whatever. I listened through A$AP Rocky’s latest record, ‘Testing’ on the 25th, when it came out, and I’m finding it hard to understand. It’s his third studio record and to date, his most audacious. However, being bold doesn’t always work. For the record, I lovedContinue reading “A$AP Rocky-Testing”

‘If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late‘ is the fourth mixtape by Drake. We all know who Drake is in 2017 but it was this record that brought him to my attention in 2015. I hadn’t been a fan of his previous records apart from a few tracks, but when I heard ‘Energy’, the secondContinue reading “Drake – If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late”
Possibly my favourite track from Logic’s debut ‘Under Pressure’. A well told story of violence, drugs and everyday struggles in his neighborhood, done in a flow only he can do. Check it out.
Now that Kendrick Lamar’s ‘DAMN‘ has had time to settle in, I think it’s time for a review. I’ve been a big fan of Lamar for about 3 years, some time after the release of ‘Good Kid, M.A.A.D City’. I stumbled across him in a (hipster) coffee shop in Vancouver where his music wasContinue reading “Kendrick Lamar- DAMN”
