Joey Bada$$ – Devastated (Music Video)

Joey Bada$$ – Devastated I can think of nothing bad to say about this song. Released in late 2016, it has been viewed by over 15 million people, and is one of what I would consider “fallback” songs – songs that you can always rely on to cheer you up when you are in a…

Hodgy – Glory (Music Video)

Hodgy – Glory (Music Video)

Released in late 2016, Glory by Hodgy is a particular interesting song – throughout the opening half we see a very mellow back beat and rhythm, whilst the fast paced lyrics are gone through in a monotonous tone. It is around half way through that we start seeing why this song is so popular from an artist that isn’t very well known within his genre, but definitely is a rising star.

Futuristic – Duh (Music Video)

Futuristic – Duh   This song by Futuristic has received a lot of attention since being released in 2013, but for me it just doesn’t hit the right spots. I personally am a fan of more original instruments being played in the background as it makes the lyrics mean a lot more and have a…
