Beyonce’ – ‘Renaissance’ (LP)
Self explanatory, from dope transitions to catchy dancer tracks this is an elite album. She put her name in the ring with Kendrick Lamar and the next artist for album of the year contention.
Steve Lacy – ‘Gemini Rights’ (LP)
The Internet affiliate and super producer Steve Lacy has been a rising star among music artists the past few years so seeing the critical reception to his latest album strikes me amazingly. He reminds me of a west coast Prince and his latest in a must listen, simply perfection. Listen here.

Akeem Ali – “Show Ya Right” (Single)
Keemy Casanova, the pimp, the make, the player, has made his return with another potential hit, “Show Ya Right.” Maintaining the 1970’s theme, Akeem’s latest is a record that carries his typical clever punch lines, tongue twisting lyricism, and tons of 70’s pimp culture references. This will be the first single off an upcoming project by Keemy Casanova, the alter-ego of Akeem Ali.
All playas, alligators, and smooth criminals be amazed by the smoothness of Ali’s delivery which combines well with the nostalgic feeling the beat and his alter ego provides listeners. With the distinct originality and immense talent, Akeem Ali is a favorite of mine to become a full fledged star in the near future.
