Revival

Eminem

EDITORS’ NOTES

“Do you still believe in me?” Eminem sings on “Believe,” the second song on his ninth LP. Vulnerability and humility aren’t typical traits for the Detroit legend, but every layer of Marshall Mathers is explored across Revival’s 19 tracks. The political, patriotic “Like Home (feat. Alicia Keys)” takes merciless aim at Donald Trump, and “Untouchable” is a multicharacter attack on bigotry and white privilege. “Framed” and “Heat” are violent and controversial enough to appease those pining after Slim Shady, while “Bad Husband” and “Castle” are soul-baringly sentimental. Whichever Eminem is your favorite, one thing remains clear: the dexterously gifted rapper hasn’t lost an ounce of skill in terms of agility and wit. Delivered at lightning speed atop a bevy of production styles—from trap minimalism to Joan Jett and The Cranberries samples—Revival proves once and for all: yes, we still believe in Eminem.

About Eminem

To call Eminem hip-hop’s Elvis is correct to a degree, but it’s largely inaccurate. Certainly, Eminem was the first white rapper since the Beastie Boys to garner both sales and critical respect, but his impact exceeded this confining distinction. On sheer verbal skills, Eminem was one of the greatest MCs of his generation — rapid, fluid, dexterous, and unpredictable, as capable of pulling off long-form narrative as he was del… more

Dedication - Chief Keef

Dedication – Chief Keef – Apple Music

EDITORS’ NOTES

It wasn’t long ago that Chief Keef took the rap game by storm, influencing a generation of rappers with the minimalistic, emotive rap style that put his native Chicago back on the map. Dedication is the result of Keef’s successors wearing that same style thin, forcing him to innovate once again. The album is Keef at his most lyrical, eschewing the nasally melody he’d also tried on for a period, relying here on well-enunciated bars. The bass, too, is subdued, Keef’s raps carrying the brunt of the load, and doing so with grace and ease on the double-time “Less Speed.” Tucked deep at the end is “Be Back,” a song that boasts a cheeky production nod to “Faneto,” Keef’s last bona fide smash.

Check out The Roots feat. Bilal: NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert

The Roots feat. Bilal: NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert

Abby O’Neill — Can you believe it? Yes, those are The Roots packed behind the Tiny Desk. Black Thought, Questlove and the crew carved out a few hours in their hectic Tonight Show schedule to visit NPR headquarters in Washington D.C. Why travel four hours for a 12-minute concert when you own the late-night airwaves? The answer can be found in the lyrics to The Roots’ new song, “It Ain’t Fair.” Armed with the incredible vocalist Bilal, The Roots performed the signature track from Detroit, a film about the race riots in 1967. “It Ain’t Fair” glares unflinchingly, takes a knee and raises a fist against the societal construct that has systematically denied equality of experience to those “presumed inferior,” to quote one of Bilal’s verses. And it achieves all this while covering its heart with its right hand. This reflective hymn tenderly yanks your heart strings and offers a window into the ethos of those who would like to stand for the flag but cannot in good principle, lest these same evils continue to exist. Those lucky enough to be in the Tiny Desk audience witnessed masters at work. Black Thought is truly one of the most intelligent emcees ever, and his razor-sharp lyricism was on full display. Questlove, a musical and cultural historian nonpareil, was both a metronomical and moral anchor. It felt like the culmination of decades of academic rigor and boom-bap sessions, fittingly backed by a seven-piece horn section. Bilal’s falsetto-laced vocals and warm resonance evoked powerful messaging reminiscent of Curtis Mayfield’s “Don’t Worry,” delivered with the eccentricity of Prince. Late last year, Common premiered “Letter to the Free” at the Tiny Desk and later won an Emmy for the song. It wouldn’t surprise me if “It Ain’t Fair” becomes another award-winning performance when the Oscars roll around early next year. This is a song that deserves to be heard in the millions of households that watch The Roots every night.

Artist Spotlight – Cardi B music

Cardi B Music

Cardi B

Gaining exposure as a popular cast member of VH1’s Love & Hip Hop: New York, rapper Cardi B is also a raw and aggressive rapper in the style of Lil’ Kim and Foxy Brown. The former stripper and social media star made her television debut on the reality show in late 2015, joining a cast that included Remy Ma. A year later, she made her musical debut alongside dancehall singer Popcaan on Shaggy’s “Boom Boom” single. The solo single “Cheap Ass Weave” and the mixtape Gangsta Bitch Music, Vol. 1 soon followed, both in early 2016. Two more singles, “Foreva” and “Wash Poppin’,” followed that summer. A second mixtape, Gangsta Bitch Music, Vol. 2, was released in early 2017. That same year, Cardi signed with Atlantic Records and scored a hit with the single “Bodak Yellow,” which climbed to the top spot of the Billboard Hot 100 in late September. ~ David Jeffries

20 Songs

EDITORS’ NOTES

Ty Dolla $ign raises the bar for the third installment of Beach House, a mixtape series that old fans hold in very high esteem. The album carries no shortage of the smirk-inducing, club-ready sex talk he broke with, but also ruminates on fame and its pressures, as well as the frailty of new relationships. At 20 tracks, there’s plenty of room for friends (the guest list is in the double digits), but they’re not just tossed-off featured verses. The bouncy and subdued “Stare” featuring Pharrell and Wiz Khalifa might just earn a place in each of their canons.

SUPER SLIMEY by Future & Young Thug

13 Songs

EDITORS’ NOTES

Future and Young Thug are kindred spirits, but working together has been rare, usually coming at the behest of a third party. As two of Atlanta’s most prolific and creative MCs, they share a fearless approach to melody and intonation, and on SUPER SLIMEY, both relish the chance to run with someone on the same level. SUPER SLIMEY is dense with bars. The turbo-charged “Three” is as much duel as collaboration, and on “200,” they split their respective verses between singing and rapping, with very little stylistic overlap. But when Future somehow finds new ground with his sleep-deprived rasp on “Group Home,” it becomes clear these rappers have stretched their voices in just about every direction possible.
