I’ll talk a little about each track and give you a stream, download, ect. It’s just going to be about good music.

If you have been following this blog for a while now, you probably know my feelings on Black Hippy. And those feelings are that they are my favorite group in the game today (just ahead of Slaughterhouse, The Dean’s List and Pac Div). For those of you who aren’t familiar with Black Hippy, they are a super-group consisting of Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul, Schoolboy Q and Jay Rock repping the west coast to the fullest. Despite only have released only five tracks as a group, they have made waves individually. They have all done huge things on their own, but it’s time you got introduced to the group as a whole.

Black Hippy member, Jay Rock is ready to release his debut album, Follow Me Home, July 26th after numerous delays. The Watts rapper is signed to the two most successful independent labels, Top Dawg and Strange Music. As I stated above, Jay is a member of the west coast collective known as Black Hippy, also containing rappers Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul and Schoolboy Q. They are my favorite group in the game today (sorry Slaughterhouse), however I think think Jay Rock is the weakest link in the group by far. He is just too “hood” or “street” for my liking. I feel like they should switch out Jay Rock for Dom Kennedy or H.O.P.E. or Fashawn, but that’s an argument for a different day. Well how did Jay Rock’s debut stack up with other releases from Black Hippy? Check out the review of Follow Me Home below!

It’s finally here!!!!! Section.80 by Kendrick Lamar has been one of my most anticipated releases ever as evident by my preview of it and it being number one on my Top 10 Albums of the Summer article. I don’t want to ramble on about how much I’m looking forward to it (if you want to read that, check out my preview) so let’s just get into it. The question everyone has been asking: did it live up to the hype or not? Check it out below!
