Em back with his second preview of Revival and it’s, well, quite the ride for 6 minutes. If you can get through the rock sound of the first half, you’ll find redemption in the second half. The subject matter and lyrics are as socially conscious as Em has maybe ever been. If only the second part of the beat knocked as hard as Em too.
“Just keep marchin, til we reach Congress,
but they’re gonna say you tryna take an irrational stance if you try to slander the flag but somebody has to be the sacrificial lamb so they called it a Kaepernick tantrum if you don’t stand for the National Anthem.”Love this and how he wrapped it up right after so stay tuned til the end.

Big Sean & Metro Boomin’ ‘Double or Nothin’ (Album Stream)
The hip hop album of #NewMusicFriday. I rolled the dice on this one and think Metro’s strongest beats are up front. The waves hit right off the bat and Big Sean’s references are furious and entertaining the whole way. The album takes a turn down with “So Good” but I like how it ends with “Reason” and “No Hearts, No Love”. Still. Good car music at the least.
One of my favorite smooth jams of the summer gets a dope, colorful, and retro visual to match. You can always count on The Cool Kids to keep it fresh. Re-up this one in your rotation stat.
Kendrick Lamar ‘DAMN.’ (Collectors Edition) (Album Stream)
DAMN. — in reverse. ◀️
“I think like a week after the album came out, [fans] realized you can play the album backwards. It plays as a full story and even a better rhythm. It’s one of my favorite rhythms and tempos within the album. It’s something that we definitely premeditate while we’re in the studio.”
