If at the start of this year you told me that one of my favourite hip-hop albums from 2020 would be a Logic album I would have laughed at you. But here we are, I am about to start singing praises for the latest and (allegedly) his last album, No Pressure which was released on July 24, 2020.
When I say I like an album I usually mean that I like every track on the album and I don’t have any tracks that I would skip on a repeat listen. I am glad to say that I like every track on this Logic album which in itself is a new thing for Logic’s music.
Don’t get me wrong, I have liked a few of Logic’s tracks over the past few years but I have never liked an entire project of his. The album before this (Confessions of a Dangerous Mind) was quite possibly his worst studio album and if I had to pick a one word descriptor for it would be “wack”. So, when I heard that there was a new Logic album coming out, my expectations for it were quite low. Well, suffice to say that my expectations have been surpassed and then some. My impression of Logic as a person changed for the better as well due to some of the subject matter of the album.
I want to go through this album track by track for this post. Every track will be under its own heading with the name of the track. Let’s get started!
If you would have asked me which rapper would be perfect for The Alchemist’s production style, I would say either Pusha T or Freddie Gibbs. Well folks, I’m glad to inform y’all that this collaboration album between Freddie Gibbs and The Alchemist is fantastic and just what one would expect from such a collaboration.
For the past week or so ever since this album came out it has been on regular rotation for me and before I get into it this is hands down the best trap album of the year for me. It’s still March but I honestly don’t think we will have a trap album better than this in 2020. I hope I’m proven wrong but that’s the pedestal I’m putting this album on.
Alright so this album has been on repeat for me for the last couple weeks or so. Someone on a subreddit I frequent mentioned that a streamer was listening to TAEYEON so I decided to check her out. The first thing I saw was the above music video.
When clipping. released the first single for their new album two months ago, I was very intrigued. clipping is best described as a experimental hip-hop group, I didn’t really vibe with their previous album Splendor &Misery, it was a little too harsh for my tastes.
