SOULCULTURE REVIEWS

Professor Green – Alive ‘Till I’m Dead | Album Review ● ‘Most times ashamedly poppy, nevertheless, the dark comedy and eclectic offerings of Alive ‘Till I’m Dead make for a satisfying alternate to achieving mainstream recognition.’

Rick Ross – Teflon Don | Album Review ● ‘Whilst many titles in Hip Hop continue to be disputed (King of N.Y., King of the South) the crown of “Boss” remains on the head of one Rick Ross.’

Curren$y – Pilot Talk | Album Review ‘Curren$y’s raps may tire and seem flawed on the lyric driven tracks, but he excels on the hazy, chilled out material.  “Breakfast” has a lush, sunny morning vibe to it and “Skybourne” soars with some melodic funk.’

The Roots – How I Got Over | Album Review ● ‘In an era where Hip Hop and rap are dominated by mediocre talent, The Roots are a breath of fresh air because they simply don’t make albums like this anymore.’
