Tory Lanez dropped his album "Memories Don't Die" on March 2nd and it's already sitting at #3 on Apple Music's Top Charts. As expected, this album is fire and includes his signature style of music... singing, rapping, and combining two songs into one. One thing that I think could have been stronger, is the features. He's got Fab, Davo, NAV, Mansa, 50 Cent, Paloma Ford, Wiz, and Future on there, and I'm not saying it's weak... I'm just saying it could have been way better, he's in a position now where he can get anybody on there and yeah... that's all I'm gonna say about that. Overall, the album is hot. I've been listening to it pretty much every day since it came out, ha. Oh yeah, did I mention Tory Lanez is one of my favorite artists? I've really been waiting and looking forward to this album for so long.
This album also made me become a fan of Mansa, I wasn't very familiar with his music before this, but the songs he's featured on, "48 Floors" and "Hillside" (which also features Wiz) are two of my favorites on the whole album. Another favorite song from this project is "Happiness x Tell Me." This is a beautifully combined song that tells the story about when his mother passed away and how he found out about it. The transition between the two songs is perfect, and the story is very personal and touching. And the last song I'll recommend is "B.I.D." meaning bust it down. This song is litty. I could not stop playing it when I first heard it. It's on a whole different wave than the last three songs I mentioned, play this one if you're trying to hype yourself or T up, it just puts you in a good mood. If you still haven't checked this album out, ya late!!
Prime Records had their weekly Open Mic that is held every Monday at 37th & Zen, and once again it was lit. A lot of their clients pulled up and showed love, some even performing songs they recorded with Prime at their two studios, DNA, located at 4940 Rutherford Rd. Virginia Beach, VA, and Diamond Dialect, 2420 Virginia Beach Bld.
The 757's own, Fixamilli, drops his video for "Stretch." I was excited to see that the video was produced by Ivy League Music Group because they always do great work. Once again, they did thattttt. This video is artistic, simple, and clean. A perfect match for the song, which is a "tough" track that talks about trappin, guns, and getting girls.
Biggz is back at it again with "See You Again." This track is one for everybody with the smooth sound and relatable lyrics. I love the piano combined with the singing to create this unique sound. I like this song because it feels personal, its a freestyle, he shouts out his friends, and talks about some real life topics.
I always like to listen to Biggz work. Because he is such a talented engineer and producer as well, I know I can always expect very high quality music and his style is something that reminds me of the OGs when it comes to rapping.
Be sure to check this one out and be on the lookout for Biggz album, "3330" dropping on March 30th
