With 2020 closing out I thought that it would be best to show off some of the best songs that came out this year. Great albums from Lil Uzi Vert, 21 Savage, and Pop Smoke there were plenty of awesome songs for people to listen to. It was a much better year of music than compared to last year even though in the actual world it has been pretty bad. The music this year has been one of the few positives of 2020 and has given people an escape from things like Covid-19 and politics.

Jack Harlow is one of…


One of my favorite artists over the fast few years has been Trippie Redd. When I first heard his song ‘Bust Down’, I knew I had to check out some of his other music. I listened and listened as he rose to the top of my favorite artists. I would stay up for his late-night album releases and follow his every move as he dropped music. I really enjoy the way he uses his voice and his overall style as an artist.

Some of my favorite albums of his are ‘LIFE’S A TRIP’ and ‘A Love Letter To You 3’…


Drake or Aubrey Graham is one of the most successful artists of our generation. Over 10 projects including albums and EP’s he has had more popularity and success than anybody else to this day. Just about everybody knows who Drake is whether it’s from his great music or his time on the show Degrassi. Everyone has a song from Drake that they enjoy even if they don’t like him. Out of his hundreds of songs, I thought I would share some of my favorites that he has released over the years.

5. Too Much

With a sadder style than most…


With the genre of rap being one of the most popular in the world, there are many household names and some unknown ones. Guys like Drake and Travis Scott are known by everybody and some rappers just don’t get the credit that they deserve. Some artists are just waiting to get their chance and some have been working for years behind the spotlights.

After a great month of music in September and the hot start of music in October, there are a lot of good songs going around right now. Some of these songs are new and some others are a little older but have been thought about at the moment because of some new songs.

Mr. Right Now — 21 Savage, Metro Boomin, and Drake

21 Savage and Metro Boomin have been in the news recently for their album ‘Savage Mode II’. One of the songs off of this album is ‘Mr. Right Now’ featuring Drake. In some people’s opinions, it is…


This past month has been a great month for music. A lot of artists dropped new albums and explored different sounds and styles to please their audiences. Rappers like Tory Lanez dropped a new album out of nowhere and 21 Savage and Metro Boomin released a new project that has been longly anticipated. Another rapper Machine Gun Kelly released a new rock album which was different from his usual rap music.

Savage Mode II — Album


One of my favorite artists right now is Playboi Carti. Carti has risen to fame in the past few years because of his different style that sets him apart from the rest. While we are waiting on him to drop some new music I thought I would give my top 7 favorite songs by him. This list will not include any leaks or unreleased tracks just ones released on streaming platforms.

7. Uh Uh — with Chief Keef

Uh Uh’ off of Keef’s album ‘Mansion Musick’ is a classic in my opinion. Chief Keef is one of the greats in…


For today’s blog, I’m going to talk about some of the songs I’m listening to these days. This includes some new songs and some old songs that have caught my eye at the moment. I love to go back and listen to older albums over again just to get that feeling that it gave when it first came out.

Knock Knock — Mac Miller

The late Mac Miller was a great artist when he was still here. This song ‘Knock Knock’ is one of his best in my opinion and a great song for parties. With the upbeat flow and consistent lyrics, it’s easy for…

On July 3rd, 2020 Pop Smoke’s first posthumous album ‘Shoot For The Stars Aim For The Moon’ was released. The week it was released it debuted on the Billboard top 200 at number 1.

August was a great month for the genre of Hip Hop. With many new albums from newer artists like NLE Choppa and Da Baby headlining the way. Also, hit singles from Drake, Cardi B, and Internet Money top the charts.

Music is a way for people to mentally escape from their problems. Whether their stressed out or in a bad mood they can turn on some music and it can change how their feeling. Everybody loves at least one type of music and that’s what makes it a passion for a lot of people. Music is very important to today’s…
