With their fifth and final album, Redeye Empire is calling it quits after the album, Vernon Grant Chronicles. While it has been nearly nine years since their previous album, they have still garnered some attention between those nine long years. While I don't know any of the members personally, this album and the announcement that they're calling it quits hit hard for me. I remember back in high school when I first dipped my toes into the reggae scene. They were a unique band and were different from the rest, but their sound was amazing. I later found out that they weren't a huge name and had a small fa…

One of the original rappers and legends in hip-hop returns to the music scene. If you don't know who I'm talking about from the first sentence, the man is Eminem. Eminem has been making music for several years but has surprised fans with a new album titled Music to Be Murdered By. Despite having some weak albums in the 2010s, this marks his eleventh studio album and he fixed some issues that he faced with his previous albums.

The first track of the album, Premonition (Intro), starts with a woman screaming and she was possibly killed. Right after, Eminem talks about all the negative reviews he was receiving from…

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…
