The Good, The Bad and The Ugly from this week.
So here’s the thing: I didn’t find this song to be horrible, I just thought what it stood for was beyond pitiful. On it, the odd pair sell out for the listeners, promoting how good a can of Chef Boyardee is. Their words are jaw-droppingly cheesy, and the video to the song simply doesn’t help the matter. Yachty and Donny, I’m ashamed in you.
REIGNING CHAMP: START THE PAR-DEE (1)
This album simply wasn’t good. Most people like myself wanted Stefflon to go the Caribbean route for majority of it, but she decided to rap way too much (And her raps were simply subpar). I also thought the beats on it were bad, her content was boring, and she didn’t fit in to 90% of the songs. For someone so talented to put an album like this up was very disappointing.
REIGNING CHAMP: SECURE (1)
TOP LYRICAL SONG
6LACK showed out on this song. From start to finish, he shows outstanding punchlines and astute wordplay. As usual, he reaches the listeners hearts with nothing but honest bars and vulnerable thoughts, practically sounding like he’s on the verge of tears throughout. For those of you who think our guy can’t spit, think again!
Honestly, the whole Young Thug/YSL album had some serious beats, but I think i have to give the crown to Russ’ “Flute Song.” The s**t is unique, high-octane, and fits his style like a glove. The cherry on top is that he produced it by himself.
REIGNING CHAMP: HARD PIANO (1)
TOP INDIE EFFORT
Kiddo Weirdo kills this song! Hailing from the great southern state of Arkansas, our hero shows off so many different skillsets over this traditional trap beat. All in all, I think the song has a great bop, and the confidence our hero shows is inspiring.

I really liked this song, guys! It has an infectious melody, lots of smooth words, and our guy 24hrs spits like a real one on his verse. However, it’s still not better than who I consider to be the reigning champion below.
This was a poor week for albums… Nothing quite blew me away, so by default, I’m going to give this award to Amine. “OnePointFive” was fun, it had some very good bars on it, but in my opinion, something was missing. Nonetheless, the album is at least enjoyable to listen to.
Make sure you see next’s week edition of the awards to see if any of the songs above can be topped!
