audio review : The Hustle Continues ( album ) ... Juicy J

This is supposed to be an official Juicy J album, but it sounds more like a mixtape than his last mixtape. The “Shutdafukup” catchphrase can be heard repeatedly and it’s annoying every time. The Logic bits should’ve been limited to the songs he raps on. That project is actually a little better than this one, mainly because of all these basic-ass hooks.

audio review : We Got Love ( song ) … Teyana Taylor

What’s missing on the official version of this song is Kanye West’s melodic ad-libs from the demo. It didn’t really make sense for him to back only Teyana Taylor’s first verse; the second verse would’ve been better; but instead of being moved, he’s cut from the song entirely.

Still the best parts aren’t Teyana Taylor’s. That little scream she does after “Home is where the heart is” sounds mildly annoying. It’s the music she’s rapping to I like the most. What I Love is the ending where Lauryn Hill does a bombastic monologue over gorgeous synth chords.
