Ill Mind of Hopsin 9 music review

Hopsin – Ill Mind of Hopsin 9 music review


Although Ill Mind 9 is not my favorite Ill Mind of Hopsin to be released, I would say that it struck a chord and was more heartfelt than  any of the other ones. Ill Mind of Hopsin 9 is a rap song by Hopsin where he raps as if he was speaking to his child that he has never met and is forcibly separated from. The tone is very different than in any other Ill Mind and I believe that was done very intentionally. This isn’t an angry subject for him, I think it is more something he needed to say and he wanted to go about it as if it were actually a message to his soon. The beat is lighter, the rap is slower, and his voice is softer. Especially in the hook. It is a great song, a better one of Hopsin’s. Not my favorite Ill Mind, but definitely the deepest and probably most important.

Madchild music review


I’m a big fan of rap, it is by far my favorite genre and almost exclusively what I listen too. What I love most is hardcore and underground. Madchild is one of the best hardcore-underground rappers out there, and lyrically brilliant. A rapper of Canadian decent, often rapping of his upbringing, drug problems, and views, he never holds back. He is often considered the “king” of freestyle battle raps, having won multiple national competitions and tournaments… His sound and rhythm is hard to describe, but so noticeable and unique that when you hear him once you can pick him out of a crowd. There is a reason he is underground though. That being he never pulls punches with his lyrics and says what he wants. Being said you may not like him, but if you do you will love him.\


Straight Outta Compton movie review


I love when I get the chance to review a movie I have previously reviewed the trailer of, and be right on absolutely everything I predicted. This movie WAS intense. This movie WAS awesome. This movie WAS absolutely entrancing! Straight Outta Compton follows the group NWA on their rise to fame and the members lives before and after the group. It has been a long time since I have seen something with this good of a story arc and character progression! Straight Outta Compton focuses mainly on the lives of Eazy-E, Dr. Dre, and my personal favorite, Ice Cube. Yes, DJ Yella and MC Ren are in this but they take sort of a back seat to the main three. What I do love though is the cameo appearances of young Snoop Dogg, Tupac, Suge Knight, and The D.O.C., all who were played perfectly! What Straight Outta Compton does, is never really make any of the members bad. Sure at some point they all do something shady and dickish (especially Eazy), but they were gangsters! Throughout the movie Eazy has his moment in the sun, focusing on him and his road to where he is. Then Dre has his, the Cube. What I loved most though WAS when NWA broke up. We got to see everyone go out on their own, grow up, get families, release solo albums, and meet up again after years. Something you have to be wary of though, is this IS an accurate biography, and these WERE gangsters. There is plenty of violence, drugs, swearing (a shit ton), nudity, sex, and so on! You should not let that stop you from watching this though, as it is an amazing movie that is a must see to everyone.

The Marshall Mathers LP 2 music review


The Marshall Mathers LP 2 marks Eminem’s 8th album. Everybody knows about Eminem, and everybody knows about his heavy hitting lyrics, vulgar language, and controversy. In 2010 with the album Recovery, Eminem cleaned up his act quite a bit. His lyrics were cleaner, he was clean, and that was good! Don’t get me wrong, I love the fact that Eminem cleaned up his act for his family, and himself. That is amazing, but I honestly miss the angry, drugged out, white boy, that is Slim Shady. In this album Eminem doesn’t bring back Slim, but he goes classic almost, rapping in his old school ways again! The lyrics are quick and rough, there is some anger mixed in. As screwed up as it is to say, I love it! I missed the Eminem that we all fell in love with, and this a phenomenal refresher. If you like his old stuff, trust me, get it!
