We return to reviewing R5 after being disappointed by the Pryhme release with Premier.  We open up this new release "Book of Ryan" and he takes us to some where we did not think he could.  We listened to so many artist spill their soul into their music but did not think it would be Royce adding to the quality of music being released. Check it out

The teen group Chloe X Halle from Grown-ish has their first studio release, "The kids are alright." We discuss the easy going production and the great harmonization between the young ladies.  Its surprising that these young ladies had their hands on so much of this album.  From writing, producing and singing all through this release.  It sounded like much more seasoned artists. The ladies created a very enjoyable album that we didn't expect.

 We were so surprised with the new release of the new J. Cole release K.O.D.  First that it came out with no pre-release fanfare,  And with this different style he choose on this release, we hold our breath and break these tracks down to see if this is another J Cole masterpiece.

4 Your Eyes Only plunges deep into J. Cole's soul.  You can clearly hear it in his voice - pleading testifying, on the verge of cracking.  At Center stage with no featured guest, The North Carolina rapper speaks out on social ills, black lives and doing the right thing in a world of wrong.

We plunge into this amazing artist with a old hip hop head and a Generation X perspective.  Sean and I give props to a hip hop artist with a CD well made We revisit this because of the new release of the new K.O.D
