Arrested Development – For the FKN Love – !!!!

This album is bangin!  Not to sound surprised, but historically Arrested Development (AD) usually projects more of a warm, melodic feel more based on the lyrics… the soul.  Now this album has all of the aforementioned, but its all based on some slappin’ drums.  Speech, as always, is the alpha-leader of this multi-platinum, multiple Grammy-winning group.  He leads with his heart and has no shame in doing so.  I’ve always admired him for that.  Its hardcore.  Listeners will be inspired by the lyrics and moved by the production with assistance by producer Configa.  Its AD’s most prolific release and a powerful launch into 2022.

  J-Live - Lose No Time - !!!! Although this is more of an EP than a full-length album, J-Live (widely known as 'the rappers rapper') features his usual innovative wordplay and production that will keep this on repeat.  Its a project that sounds mature, yet still creative and new.  It incorporates classic elements such as DJ scratching and similes but again, still sounds current with modern references.  If he added […]
