No lie, I've been listening to the same 5 or 6 albums on rotation for the last month. I don't know if it's laziness or just not having the time but I need to get back into the swing of things asap! (Which I will, but need to prioritize myself as I settle back in.)

I did get a chance to listen to the new Summer Walker and Da Baby albums, which are actually pretty good, but definitely deserve more listens.

I've especially been enjoying Wu-Tang's 36 Chambers along with the Hulu series, which is so brilliantly written and shot by the way.
RZA's production and sample use is unmatched... which reminds me, I need to finish my Top Producer's list lol...
I just realized something... I've never really explained the name of my blog, it's really random but there's a lot of purpose behind it.

It's named after a song by Gang Starr (RIP Guru) called 'Soliloquy of Chaos' from their 3rd album 'Daily Operation'. I was going through a phase a couple of years back where I was learning about old school hip hop artists and groups via music samples of my some of my favourite songs and that's how I came across them (and my favourite rap group of all time, The Pharcyde). I stumbled across this song and before I even heard the song, I loved the title of it. Perfect description of the ramblings on my Tumblr blog at the time and subsequent blogs. Although I've re-invented my online presence countless times, this title is always going to fit beautifully with my online diary no matter the platform or format. I have a lot of crazy, weird, random and chaotic thoughts, experiences, ideas etc to share. I feel like every rant or musing or story I share has one or more of those elements and it's like a bunch of soliloquies to the reader, or audience, if you will.

This week's top 11: August 27th 2019

Another week of great new music! Definitely couldn't just pick 6... or 10 so 11 it is. 😊

I am so so so impressed by A$AP Ferg and Pi'erre Bourne's recent projects. 
I was late to the party with 'The Life of Pi'erre 4' as it came out back in June and in fact, the whole TLOP series is pretty new to me. I stumbled across it really randomly. I of course found out about him as "Yo, Pierre you wanna come out here?" The producer of Playboi Carti's 'Magnolia' one of my favourite productions in the last 5 years. I love his production style in general and I don't know why but strongly it reminds me of Clams Casino's work on 'Live.Love.A$AP' - which I also loved.
I know he just put out a co-billed project with Young Nudy (who?! can't keep up these days) which I want to give a listen to as well.

Now with A$AP Ferg, I've loved his flow and style since the early A$AP Mob days but I felt like most of his projects weren't as consistently good as his work as a featured artist. But 'Floor Seats' is a lot more up my alley. I LOVE the production and the collabs on it, especially Rico Nasty on 'Butt Naked' and A$AP Rocky on 'Pups.'

'Monster' still slaps idc! I've really come to appreciate Kanye's verse and of course Nicki's only gets better as time goes on. I love NAO so much but I really don't listen to her as much as I ought to - Orbit is such a beautifully constructed song, like it legit makes me want to cry. Maybach Music 2 is probably my favourite MM song by Ross. 'Ye x Pain... need I say more? Although, MM 3 is also one of my favourites. 

The rest are all new songs that I love and I'm sure you will too. 

1. Kanye West feat. Jay-Z, Rick Ross, Nicki Minaj & Bon Iver - Monster
2. Rick Ross feat. T-Pain, Lil Wayne & Kanye West - Maybach Music 2
3. Little Brother - The Feel
4. Arin Ray feat. Kehlani - Change
5. A$AP Ferg feat. Rico Nasty - Butt Naked
6. Little Brother - Goodmorning Sunshine
7. NAO - Orbit
8. Pi'erre Bourne - Poof
9. A$AP Ferg feat. MadeinTYO - WAM
10. Ryan Trey - LV Smoke
11. Pi'erre Bourne - Be Mine

Rearranging, re-organizing and updating this site so please bear with me if it looks like everything is all over the place.

A lot of new content coming asap!

This week's top 6: July 31st 2019

Is summer not a good time to release an album or something? Because I've been really underwhelmed with a lot of the projects that have been released. Now if you're talking singles, then those, for the most part have been consistent and summertime-friendly. I know I was supposed to do a review of Big K.R.I.T's new project but I was actually kind of disappointed on first listen but I know it deserves a few more listens before I make a genuine review, same with The Lion King: The Gift, same with The Big Day and a bunch more. So you know me, I'll just stick to listening to come classics and favorites. Speaking of, I'm so glad Drake decided to put out this care package because he has so many hits that he randomly dropped throughout the years. You guys didn't respect '4pm in Calabasas' and it shows!

As always, I bring to you an eclectic group of songs, all of which are current or stand out tracks from recent projects. 

1. Blood Orange - I Wanna C U
2. Majid Jordan feat. Khalid - Caught Up
3. Big K.R.I.T. feat. Lil Wayne & Saweetie - Addiction
4. Flying Lotus feat. Anderson .Paak - More
5. Alex Isley - Water & Air
6. J Balvin & Bad Bunny feat. Mr Eazi - COMO UN BEBE

Honorable mention: Metro Boomin feat. Gunna - Space Cadet
