Dopest Albums of 2016, From Alex

posted by Alex December 26, 2016

As this year comes to a close and lists are brought up, I can’t help but to think of the music projects that shaped my year and made my year so much better. After looking at my list of top albums of 2016, I came to the conclusion that I was more focused on different sounds as well as where each artist’s head was at in the making of their particular project. Yes, The Life of Pablo and Coloring Book are a couple of the top albums of the year, but I’m different and these following works of art have gotten me through this weird 2016. Check em out!

A couple of days late on Astonish’s new project, but nonetheless we definitely had to feature To Who It May Concern. I have actually listened to this project a few times since it’s release and I was definitely vibing out to each and every track.

When someone puts out a project and claims that “they’ve been through a lot”, you sometimes can’t really feel it in their project. When I listened to To Whom It May Concern the first time, I surely felt everything that Astonish went through. It’s evident that Atonish has imprinted his blood, sweat, tears, feelings and so much more into this offering. I also noticed that Astonish brought the right mix of artists to express his feelings such as Treated Crew’s Mano on “My Theme Song”, JDott (RIP) on “Ride”, Jus’Q on “We Did It” & “Peace”, and Chris Crack on “Triple Beam”. Here’s the perfect scenario to listen to this album: Take a cruise down LakeShore Drive. Start at Montrose and literally go all the way down past South Shore Drive and into that new South Lake Shote Drive on 87th. Park up at Steelworkers Park. Light up. Listen to To Whom It May Concern below.
