The Good, The Bad and The Ugly from this week.


WORST SONG

SAGE THE GEMINI & CHRIS BROWN – BUSS IT

Honestly, I thought this song was way too corny for my liking. It features cliche strip club lyrics, and both the hook and melodies attached to it are predictable. There’s nothing worse than cliche and predictable club music.

REIGNING CHAMP: START THE PAR-DEE (2)


WORST ALBUM

BLAC YOUNGSTA – F**K EVERYBODY 2

Believe it or not, I felt like Blac Youngsta’s previous project was alright. This time around, there was way too much malarkey. I also felt like he wanted to make the next “Booty” throughout, which resulted in tracks that were nothing but throwaways. But hey, the fact that he went 1/2 is a bit of a surprise to me.

REIGNING CHAMP: SECURE (2)


TOP LYRICAL SONG

EMINEM – LUCKY YOU

You can argue that Eminem’s whole album could end up in this category, but I’ll just go with the most lyrical effort on it instead. “Lucky You” features some serious bars, especially from Joyner Lucas who is featured on it. With that being said, do me a favor, enjoy all the diss records on the project this week, but go back and listen to some of the cuts that aren’t diss records on that album next week.

REIGNING CHAMP: ROYCE DA 5’9/EMINEM – CATERPILLAR (2)


TOP BEAT

CURREN$Y – FIRE IN THE CLOUDS

This whole album had nothing but dope ass beats. With Drupey Beatz behind most of them, he made sure Curren$y was hooked up with some s**t that was old school sounding but still bass boomin’. Does Curren$y meet the beat with the same energy? Not quite, but I’m OK with that, because they required someone who wouldn’t over power them.

REIGNING CHAMP: HARD PIANO (2)


TOP INDIE EFFORT

TOUGH ON FRIDAYS – LET DOWN

The track is a Punk pop gem that does everything in its power to pick up your mood, and trust me, their efforts payoff! With the assistance of 3x Grammy Winner, Tre Nagella, for both mixing and co-producing purposes, the duo was able to present listeners with three minutes of exciting guitar-play, boisterous vocals and heavy-hitting drumming. In addition to that, both Katie and Caleigh were able to deliver some pretty inspirational lyrics on their verses, as they do their best to encourage individuals who have dealt with relationship issues to overcome their hardships by finding their true selves, while also leaving their ‘old news’ behind in the dus

REIGNING CHAMPION: IMANI Wj WRIGHT – HOME (2)


TOP SONG

TEKASHI 6IX9INE – BEBE 

In the midst of all the diss records and responses to diss records coming this week, one of the most fun-loving tracks that dropped was ironically from the king of disses (Tekashi 6ix9ine). His newest track titled “Bebe” provided the hip hop world with Latin vibes, persuading you to hit the nearest Reggaeton club you can find. With the help of Anuel AA, our hero was able to give us something authentic for three minutes and thirty eight seconds, shocking everyone including himself.

REIGNING CHAMPION: GOD’S PLAN (2)


TOP ALBUM

EMINEM – KAMIKAZI

This album can also win most controversial, most heinous, most lyrical, and plenty more. Eminem clearly decided he wasn’t with the bulls**t before he made it, because his bars are raw and he shows no fear in attacking literally every individual in the game that has gotten under his skin. Does it win album of the year? No, but I think it was one of the most entertaining.

REIGNING CHAMPION: PUSHA-T (DAYTONA) (2)


Make sure you see next’s week edition of the awards to see if any of the songs above can be topped!
