Flower Boy-Tyler the Creator

Rating: 4/4

Fave Tracks: Where the Flower Blooms, Glitter, November

I actually loved this album! The beats give me Neptunes early 2000’s vibes. Tyler is known for his somewhat wacky demeanor, but his music has never been wacky. His soulful, sultry beats laced with thought provoking words make him an awesome artist. This album makes me want to hang  on somebody’s patio and just chill.

A$AP Mob- Cozy Tapes Vol. 2

Rating: 4/4

Fave Tracks: RAF, Feels So Good, Frat Rules 

Like any A$AP Mob compilation, they deliver. The features are ridiculous! They have all the hottest artist from Big Sean, Frank Ocean, Quavo and many more. The skits on the album give it a great comic relief.

Detroit (2017)

Rating 3/4

I really wanted to see this movie for two reasons, one, I love historical and biopic movies. The second reason was I had never even heard of the murder at the Algiers Motel, although I am very familiar with the Detroit Riots. This movie though fictionalized in some areas was daunting. The scenes with straight police brutality and the tragic murders were gut-wrenching to watch. It was so unfortunate that the events of 30+ years ago seem to mirror the events of today.

5. Rotimi- Jeep Music Vol. 1 

Rating: 4/4

Fave Tracks: Kitchen Table, Baecation, Right Here 

Who knew Dre from Power could sang!? I was fully shocked and impressed with this collection. Rotimi’s talents reach way beyond acting. He has a smooth, sexy voice. His sexy voice suits his sexy lyrics very well. This is the perfect music for date night with bae😍

Bronzeville: Season 1 Podcast  

Rating: 4/4 

I gave this series a try because I love Larenz Tate. I will admit it took a little getting used to having no visual to go along with the audio, but there was still so much action and drama that I forgo about the visual after a while. This podcast series was created by Larenz Tate and Laurence Fishbourne. The series is set in 1940’s Bronzeville area of Chicago. The main character, Lucky, voice of Larenz Tate is a numbers runner of the infamous criminal Copland family. The family eventually finds themselves in a criminal war. Other star voices you may recognize in the series are Omari Hardwick, Wood Harris, Tika Sumpter, Tracee Ellis Ross, and more. You can find the series on Spotify. I am now patiently waiting for season 2!
