This is a hip-hop site, but I do occasionally pay attention to genres other than my first love. So, I have made, especially for you, my brief thoughts on two recent albums from singers that interest me: Janelle Monae and Tamar Braxton. I’ve handled Tamar’s comeback cd below and I’ll ponder Janelle Monae’s latest collection of android love songs tomorrow. Those annoyed by this temporary change in theme can ignore these posts and look forward to the usual hip-hop stuff coming soon after this aberration. I’ve got a Procussions EP and album to chew through, the Flatbush Zombies last mixtape, plus a lot of mainstream stuff that I might want to discuss came out recently. Maybe I’ll wax on the fine symbolism within Gucci Mane’s latest trap masterpiece?
