With permission from the family, Circles is a posthumous release from Mac Miller who passed away in 2018. After giving family and friends time to grieve and process Mac Miller's death, they decided to allow his record label to release Circles, which was in the works before he passed. Normally I am not excited for posthumous releases since some record labels can use it as a "cash cow." However, I think this release wasn't intended for that purpose and I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this album.

Right at the beginning of the album we have the title track, Circles. The track starts off light and quiet …

There is one thing that I've always thought about when it comes to AdSense, are all blogs and websites treated the same? If there were two websites with similar views and other stats but were about two completely different topics, would they make the same amount of money through AdSense? The answer may surprise you, but they would get paid different amounts. Turns out, the amount of money you could make through AdSense greatly depends on your niche, or topic.

Before we talk about the different niches, we need to talk about two terms related to advertisements: CPC and CPM. If you run a blog or website and run a…

Now that all the holidays are over, we have now entered the year of 2020. It's a new year as well as a new decade. You probably have guessed it by the title of the post, but here are my top ten favorite albums of 2019. While a lot of music critics have already come up with their top ten, I feel like you will always have a few gems released in the last month of the year. Another disclaimer, I would not call myself a "professional" under any means, so some of these albums might come as a surprise for some of you. I have also tried to choose a variety of genres to make it a little more meaningful. Since…

Of course, Travis Scott was going to release something before the end of the year. JACKBOYS is a hip hop collective consisting of Travis Scott, Sheck Wes, and Don Toliver. Despite the collective only having three members, the EP JACKBOYS has some guest features from Quavo, Offset, and many more.

To start off the album, we have a remix of Travis Scott's HIGHEST IN THE ROOM, which was released earlier this year. If you haven't heard the original, it has a trap beat with a high-pitched vocalist in the background. The remix keeps the chorus and his first verse, but then we have the addition of RosalĂ­a and Lil Baby.…

After delays and complications, the Free Nationals have finally released their long-awaited self-titled album. The Free Nationals are mostly known for being Anderson .Paak's backing band, however, this album proves that they are more than just a background band. Myself, along with others, have been blown away by the work that has been put into this album. The album also has a hefty list of featured artists.

The first track off the album is Obituaries. The track opens up with a cool, jazz beat going on. There's also a spoken word part from Shafiq Husayn. After his spoken part, there's a heavy, synthwave…

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…
