Chance the Rapper’s “Coloring Book”

The hype that surrounds Chance the Rapper’s  anticipated mixtape, Coloring Book, is well deserved. He released the project on Thursday and I have already killed the sound in one of  my earbuds….the left one to be exact.  Chance has already had a great year so far with his cowrite and appearance in Kanye Ye’s album The Life of Pablo, and  his features with other artists like Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and Skrillex. Coloring Book is a true testament of Chance’s growth as an artist after his previous mixtapes: Acid Rap (2013) 10 Day (2012). Coloring Book featured a few of my favorite artists to include: Kanye West of course, Lil Wayne, 2 Chains, Young Thug, Lil Yachty, Justin Bieber, T Pain, Kirk Franklin and Future to name a few. You seriously can’t go wrong with a list like that:

Beyonce Premieres Her New Album “Lemonade”

Beyonce  released a visual for her new album Lemonade and I’ve been in formation since the Super Bowl. I just want Beyonce to know that I died 15 minutes into the premiere. “I can taste the dishonesty on your lips”. Beyonce sends us through the emotions of what appears to be a relationship that has been through the trials of cheating, however, ultimately reaching common ground in the end.  Suddenly the whole elevator incident all makes perfect sense and in actuality Beyoncé could be taking us through her own emotions within her relationship with Jay Z.  I can’t speak for men, but Beyonce wrapped up all the emotions a woman feels when she has been betrayed by the man she loves.

The entire visual of Beyonce’s album had be questioning what did Jay Z exactly do to  Beyonce during their relationship. More importantly, how do you cheat on Beyonce? Either way, Beyonce threw her whole entire soul and being into this album; meanwhile Jay Z officially has 100 problems. I love how she infused the  African and Louisiana culture throughout the entire visual. I loved how Warsan Shire’s poetry was quoted throughout Lemonade to portray her various emotions. I noticed a few familiar faces to include Zendaya, Jay Z, Winnie Harlow, Quvenzhabe Wallis and  Amandla Stenberg to name a few. Beyoncé also incorporated some of the families that have been affected by police brutality to include Sybrina Fulton (Trayvon Martin’s mother) and Al Jazeera America ( Michael Brown’s mother). Below are the different emotions that Beyoncé takes us through during the visual:
