As anticipated, Kehlani’s "You Should Be Here" dropped at midnight. The project features Chicago natives Chance The Rapper, and Bj the Chicago Kid; so in a sense we’re hearing both sides of the story, while each track explores the ups and downs of relationships.

Today Twitter has been buzzing for two huge reasons. To start Baltimore has been peacefully protesting, rioting, cleaning its streets, and dancing to MJ’s “Beat it” all in response to the tragic death of Freddie Gray. The other huge reason is because today Towkio has dropped his debut album .WAV THEORY. Despite how different the tone of Towkio’s media is compared to the pieces of sound and image coming out of Baltimore both subjects are severely relevant. Most of the reviews or coverage i have seen from other major publication networks like Pitchfork or Stereogum have failed to go in depth in analyzing and contextualizing this body of work. Therefore, I will do my best to accomplish both tasks.
