Kendrick Lamar - Album (Delayed)

We were expecting to me discussing Kendrick Lamar's highly anticipated album this week but we will have to wait until April 14 to do so. No big deal really, he did never actually say that his releasing this week, we all just assumed that's what he meant.

But let's get to what we do have.

Joey Bada$$ - All-Amerikkkan Bada$$

Joey Bada$$ promised and he did deliver what I find to be a very quality album. His 90s Brooklyn flow brings the heart of hip hop to Joey's second album.

The album goes deep as you could suggest by the title as he spells America with three K's to obviously highlight the racial issues going on in the country. He also takes shots at the government and American's supposed "freedom".

Tracks like "For My People", "Temptation" and "Devastated" using strong lyrics and incredible flow to get his points across.

It really is an album of the times and he does an amazing job of formulating his thoughts into powerful deep music. Using music on this platform is a great idea to spread a message and should surely go a long way.

Album grade: 8.2/10

The Chainsmokers - Memories Do Not Open

I personally was a bit disappointed by this album. I was expecting a lot more from the duo. It wasn't necessarily bad, I just really enjoy the Chainsmokers music and know they can produce amazing music. This was just, alright.

The best tracks in my opinion are the songs we've already heard, Paris and Something Just Like This (feat. Coldplay).

However I was excited to see a Jhene Aiko feature on this album "Wake Up Alone". I did enjoy that song as well.

Most of the other tracks were all very similar sounding and there wasn't a lot of variety in the tracks. I'm sure there will be plenty of remixes that come out in the coming days making the songs sound 10 times better.

Album grade: 6.5/10
