DJ Khaled has been behind some of the hottest records of the last few years and if there's one thing he's made consistently clear it's that he has a winning formula for hits. This is also his greatest fault.
It's never been so clear how one dimensional DJ Khaled's music really is than here on Suffering From Success, the DJ's seventh studio album.
Regardless of what the title suggests, Suffering...

When Gucci Mane released his World War 3 series on iTunes last month, it was merely a hint of what was to come. The first shots were fired on September 7th, when Guwop and Waka Flocka engaged in a Twitter argument. As more names got involved , the feud grew nastier. The peak of Gucci’s Twitter rant came on September 9th, when he put moguls such as Jeezy, Nicki Minaj, and T.I. on blast. Riding...

The Def Jam rapper explained that B.O.A.T.S II: #METime would be the ultimate record to self-reflect to, or gain some ‘me time’ as 2 Chainz calls it. Self-indulgent it certainly is, and we would expect nothing less from 2 Chainz, considering his swag and confidence. Before the album even dropped we knew we were in for some serious #TityBoiTime as 2 Chainz reveled in his success on the...

This past week The Weeknd dominated the charts, although he was outshone only by country star Keith Urban. The race between the country star and r'n'b star was a close one, with 3,000 units making the difference for the #1 spot on the Billboard 200. The race was so close, in fact, that Drizzy and The Weeknd prematurely celebrated, when Drake congratulated his friend at his recent L.A. show....

To answer the above question, yes, mostly. His recent headlines alone show that there’s something to Nipsey Hussle, and we do get a glimpse of what that 'something' may be in Crenshaw.
Overall, the tape is a good listen and a sound effort.
The production is absolutely amazing. From top to bottom, there’s not a single whack beat on this project. Nipsey’s beat selection is one of his best...
