This is my personal list. You don’t agree with me? Tell me why, and provide a rebuttal.
What can I say about this album mixtape except for it impacted my life the heaviest, deepest and hardest.
You know, just what a mixtape normally does.
The mixtape—you could call it an album—was amazing. I’m not exaggerating or overselling it. It was indeed that.
Ten years later, and I still find this mixtape to be that great.
Fun Fact: It’s its tenth anniversary because I remember it leaking on this day. Do some research if you don’t believe me.
It featured Joe Budden at his best.
It’s the final days before the new year and that means everyone and their mother will be doing their annual best of lists. Including me.
Here are my favorite songs of 2015.
If you didn’t know, I love Alchemist.
I think he is a musical genius and one of hip-hop’s treasures. He’s been in the industry for over twenty years, and is still killing it.
This year we saw a lot of output from Alchemist. He released four different projects, two instrumental albums and two Gangrene albums.
I can finally and honestly say this was the year I caught the Future bug. I mean I liked some of the stuff he did in the past such as guest features on Pusha T’s “Pain,” Lil’ Wayne’s “Bitches Love Me” and Young Jeezy’s “No Tears” where he handled the hooks but I never checked out his solo stuff.
Then, 56 Nights happened.
This past year Joe released All Love Lost.
On it, there were two songs that stood out to me: “Immortal” and “Love, I’m Good.”
The latter is the one this post is about.
