Dividends – Kash Doll – She can’t sustain it even over an EP but there is an exception and here the Detroit rapper obsesses about commas (“two commas means a million, three commas means a billion”) in a brace if flawed attempt to jump on the Cardi B Bacardi gravy train. I thought this would do it but where’s the action?
Sometimes In Snows In April – Meshell Ndegeocello – A beautiful, brooding take on a beaut of a Prince song. No it ain’t “Nothing Compares To U” but it is way up there and MN gives it a lovely soulful and sad take. Poor Tracey.
Tintin In Tibet – Mount Eerie – In which Mr. Eerie jumps back thirteen years to where he is on the road with his late wife and reading to her “Tintin In Tibet” in French -Herge’s great comic book about traipsing up a snow covered mountain to save his friend Chang.
Think About It – Rich Homie Quan, Rick Ross – The hook here goes are you ready for it? “yeah yeah yeah” and Rick Ross sounds so much like Rick on this downbeat self portrait.
Life Without God Is Nothing – Electronic Gospel like Frank Ocean meets Chance The Rapper before making out with a chipmunk.
Icy Girl – Saweetie – This is a big song for me a really good rap smart rhymes all flow in the spaces between the drums not the tracks
Floor 555 – XXXtentacion – This is one of XXX strongest songs, a raw vocal that sounds like it could be some form of rapcore “I’ll put one in that chamber, lay you in the face of God, nobody face the fake fuck, aight?” Aight.
