Daniel Caesar – Freudian (Album Review)

A few months ago, I wrote a piece for Vibe Fridays: Daniel Caesar – Get You. In it I talked about Daniel Caesar, a relatively unknown from Toronto with buttery smooth vocals, church background, and soulful lyrics about love and life. Today I'll talk about his debut album, Freudian. Let me say this clearly. Daniel Caesar… Continue reading Daniel Caesar – Freudian (Album Review)

Vibe Fridays: Big K.R.I.T. – Keep The Devil Off

Every once and a while, I go back into my archives of mixtapes that can't be found on streaming platforms to check out 4Eva and a Day, my personal favorite mixtape by Big K.R.I.T. from Mississippi. K.R.I.T. is from the same stock as J. Cole, a rapper that produces and makes his own soul-sampling, but… Continue reading Vibe Fridays: Big K.R.I.T. – Keep The Devil Off

H.E.R. Vol 2 & H.I.M. Vol 2

After my last review of H.I.M. and H.E.R., I enjoyed both projects but was unsure of the places H.E.R. and H.I.M. would fill. Less than six months later, I… Continue reading H.E.R. Vol 2 & H.I.M.

Kendrick Lamar – ELEMENT

I originally was debating on doing a full album review today or not but I finally got a chance to see Kendrick's ELEMENT video, the third video from his album DAMN. I watched it and felt it connects with the topics I've been touching on this week. Kung Fu Kenny's back again. This video said… Continue reading Kendrick Lamar – ELEMENT

SZA – CTRL (Album Review)

To Close Out Women's Week here at Everything's Magnificent, I want to finish with what is arguably this best R&B album of this year, SZA's CTRL. This was probably one of my most anticipated albums of 2017 and it definitely paid off. CTRL, the abbreviations for Control on a keyboard. SZA sits calmly in front of… Continue reading SZA – CTRL (Album Review)
