Today I would like to show some appreciation to one of my favorite artists Lil Wayne. Ever since the release of Tha Carter back in the summer of 2004 I have been a fan of Wayne. Wayne has been around for a long time in the industry. In 1991 Baby discovered Wayne and ever since he’s been evolving and growing as an artist. Wayne has grown so much over the years he’s even transcended past what we expected from him. Let’s take a look at what Wayne’s done for the industry and what we hope he will do for it in the future.
In her short time with us, Aaliyah has blessed us with some amazing music and style that has had a long-lasting effect on our culture today. On August 21, 2001, Aaliyah, along with eight others on board, passed after their airplane crashed shortly after takeoff from the Marsh Harbour Airport in the Bahamas. In memory of her life, I will be taking a look back on her career and how it has made an impact on our culture. From her fashion sense to her powerful voice that was as powerful as it was calm, we will take a look at what made Aaliyah one of the most influential women in the game.
In this new age of how music is handled and released has been a game changer in the music industry. Instead of going through getting albums pressed and distributed through retail, artists now simply upload their work to music streaming services and it’s released. Shortening the process and giving the arts more time to finish their work up to moments before the album is to be released. Not only does this give them the ability to release their music at a moments notice, but also the ability to update their tracks and albums.
With his third studio album ASTROWORLD, Travis has given us some of his best music to date. It just seems like all the experimental things he’s been doing over the last two albums have finally paid off and now we are receiving the fruits of his labor. On the album, Travis showcased his production and curation skills as he has put together some of the industry’s biggest names in hip-hop to help create this album. The album also served as a tribute to his hometown of Houston.
