A$AP Mob ‘Cozy Tapes Vol 2: Too Cozy’: Review

Share This

Lil Uzi Vert ‘Luv Is Rage 2’: Review

Share This

To put it simply, Lil Uzi Vert’s unique style is f*cking lit. Luv Is Rage 2 has Uzi continuing on his path to show a level of uniqueness that nobody in the hip-hop game has right now. Using a “weird” blend of rapping and singing, with a
