Revitalizing the Blue Chips series was a risk for Action Bronson, but the music found within isn't. Another collection of safe, genre-confining Rap songs.

Loosies | September 3rd, 2017

This week's loosies finds Hip-Hop nearly absent as the Indiesphere takes over for some Rock-infused goodness. Oh, and Singer/Songwriter fan-fics abound.

Past Greatness | September 1st, 2017

The ninth installment of Past Greatness finds no commonality between the music. They have all Rock influence, but that's about it.

Deep Cuts | August 31st, 2017

For our fourth installment of Deep Cuts, Conscious Hip-Hop competes with Experimental Trap, while the Indie scene's represented by some kooky characters.

Criticism's never kind when the receiver's unable to accept it. That's what happened with A$AP Ferg. After branching out with Always Strive, Still Striving reels it back in.
