You Won't Believe This Co-Headlining Tour

You may have seen it on social media, but there are two popular groups that are co-headlining a tour. What might those two groups be? Blink-182 and Lil Wayne. I had to check the date to make sure it wasn't an April Fool's joke, but let's dive into this.

Why this DOESN'T make ANY sense:
Need I say more? Lil Wayne and Blink-182 make completely different music. You have a rapper and then a rock/punk band. Besides Lil Wayne releasing Tha Carter V last year, both Lil Wayne and Blink-182 have been hiding in the shadows in recent years. I doubt this will be a major comeback for either of them, but it will be an interesting combination.

Why this DOES make sense:
Anyone that was born in the 90s and remembers late 90s/early 2000s music knows who these people are. You grew up on the music, you probably heard them on the radio, your friends might have talked about them, etc. If you ask anyone on the street who these people are, chances are they know who Lil Wayne and Blink-182 are.
Also, concerts don't always feature bands of the same genre. A lot of the opening acts usually differ from the genre of the headliner. Sometimes it might be a different subgenre and other times it might be a completely different genre (IE: space rock and vaporwave).

All in all, it will be interesting to see how this tour plans out. If you have the chance to go to one of the shows, let me know how it goes.

Thanks for visiting and remember to jam on!

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.…

Allah-Las is an American indie rock band consisted of four different members. LAHS marks the band's fourth studio album. While I have always known about Allah-Las, I have never had the chance to sit down and listen to one their albums, even though they have been on my "listen to list" for a while now. Now, with the release of LAHS, I had the chance to sit down and give them a chance, and I definitely wasn't disappointed.

The album starts out with Holding Pattern. There's an easy guitar groove going on at the very beginning. Right off the bat, this reminds me of some old-school classic rock, as we…

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…
