CZARFACE is a hip hop collective formed by hip hop duo 7L & Esoteric, as well as Wu-Tang Clan's Inspectah Deck. CZARFACE has had an eventful year, starting off with CZARFACE Meets Ghostface, which is a collaborative project between CZARFACE and Ghostface Killah from Wu-Tang Clan. CZARFACE also dropped an instrumental album titled Double Dose of Danger (which I was able to snag on Record Store Day this year!) and the album I am going to be reviewing, The Odd Czar Against Us. While I just discovered CZARFACE last year, they definitely reminded me of MF DOOM, with the comic book-like characters. Both also use…

With Thanksgiving out of the way, many people have one more holiday to celebrate, Christmas. While I can't speak for people who celebrate Kwanzaa or Hanukkah, a lot of families will create a large meal (or meals!) for Christmas. If your family is anything like mine, we LOVE to go all out on sweets; we have a large table dedicated to snacks and treats. However, with all of these holiday meals, there is no doubt that you are going to be consuming a lot of calories. While the weight gain is usually temporary, there are some ways to minimize the weight gain or cut down on the amount of food you consume. Check out these…

It is crazy to think that Beck is still making music, especially since his first album was released 25 years ago. Ever since his first album, he has literally done it all, with several genre-bending albums. His 2017 album, Colors, took on some more electronic elements. It's no surprise that his latest album, Hyperspace, would embrace that electronic feel. He even recruited Pharrell Williams to help with the production of the album. Despite being an electronic element, some of the tracks have a dark and eerie feeling to it. Since Beck went through a divorce earlier this year, we could consider this another Sea Chang…

I would be lying if I didn't think this album was a parody album by looking at the album cover and artist name. However, I was pleasantly surprised when I gave this album a listen. Emotional Oranges are an R&B/pop group from California and The Juice: Vol. II marks their second studio album and their second studio album this year. After listening to this short record, I have been hooked on this album.

The first track off the album is Don't Be Lazy. The beat on this track is very catchy and something that just drew me in right away. The lyrics, on the other hand, has to do with the artist's sexual li…

About a year after his last major solo album, Earl Sweatshirt comes out with a surprise EP titled Feet of Clay. This marks the second EP in his career. The EP is fairly short with seven tracks and clocking in at just 15 minutes in length. Many fans have joked that the album cover looks like a cover for a death metal band.

The first track off the album is 74. The beat for the track is simplistic with an electronic-like piano playing in the background with industrial-sounding drum beats. Earl basically raps about what has been going on since the release of Some Rap Songs. I understand that Earl gets off beat someti…

If you live in the United States, chances are, you have a credit card (or a few). According to a recent study, over half of the people living in the United States have a credit card. Credit cards are almost necessary with credit scores ruling over your life. If it's high, you're good! But if your credit score doesn't look too hot, it can have a negative impact on your life. Just having one late payment can do some serious damage to your credit score. But despite these negatives, there are a lot of positives when it comes to credit cards. If you are thinking about getting your first credit card or thinking a…

After some mixing issues with his album, Kanye West finally released his long-anticipated album, Jesus Is King. After scrapping (or changing the title) Yandhi, Kanye West comes out with his ninth studio album. He has also been a part of a few collaborative albums, such as Watch The Throne with Jay-Z and one of the more recent ones, Kids See Ghosts with Kid Cudi. Despite the political attention he's been getting from the media, a lot of people seem to be raving over this album. A lot of the tracks are pretty short, with most of them being under three minutes, but he sure can put a lot of effort into an album th…
