Favourite Hip-Hop Albums of 2015

So, even though I’ve been listening to a lot of albums in the last year, these two are still my favourite:

J.Cole’s “2014 Forest Hills Drive”
My favourite album since Kendrick Lamar’s “Good Kid M.A.A.D City”
I’ve been bumping this album since I got it in December and I’m STILL on it.
I love most of all that he did the production – and I’m a sucker for a good sample.
It’s this great production and story-telling that definitely made Nas proud along with wonderful messages like “Love Yourz” that what make this what is my favourite Hip-hop album of the year and it probably will be for a really long time.

Kendrick Lamar’s “To Pimp A Butterfly”
This is definitely the most important Rap album I’ve heard since Dead Prez’s “Let’s Get Free”
Kendrick really exhibited his unique ability to have awesome content with that adaptive (to the production and therefore feel of the song) Kendrick delivery that I came to love while listening to “Section 80”
Many people argue that “it’s not as Hip-hop as his other works” or that “it’s too jazzy” but I beg to differ: you know, because besides the fact that Hip-hop is DEEPly rooted in Jazz (making THAT argument invalid), this album has a really important message that is delivered really well with amazing flows – exactly what Hip-hop is about.
I believe this album, like “Let’s Get Free” will continue to be played for as long as there are Hip-hop heads.

First 2015 Post

I’m not gonna apologise for being away for this long – you knew what you were getting yourself into when you decided to follow my blog.
So…

Too many things have been happening in my life for me to still not be writing, so here I am.
BACK!!

May the light in all things be with you.

Date Rape Is A Thing Of The Past

This is proof that laws don’t change things, science does.

Unfortunately, date rape is a reality in our society and even though there are laws to try and punish people for committing that horrible act, it doesn’t seem to have an effect on decreasing the quantity of incidents.

I believe this will have a real effect on the solving of the problem:

WELL DONE, SCIENCE.

Education Departments All Over The World Need Ideas Like This

I have long been saying that schools may be the very reason why the standard of education has dropped so significantly.

I also think that the way we are taught to prepare for careers instead of prioritize important things like family, happiness, love and so on is the reason why there’s so much turmoil in the world because I think even when we do well in the very careers we’re prepared for, we’re still feel incomplete in some way.

Here’s a video of a kid that understands this concept, check it out.
