Since it has been raining so much recently, I have been staying indoors and chilling out. Thanks to Mother Nature’s continued dominance in the art of water fights, my music listening time has increased exponentially, which gives me more time to muse over the wonders or lack thereof in the industry at large.¬†While I do think the artform is reaching new heights on a yearly basis, one of my major gripes remains.

WHY DO NEW ARTISTS FEEL THE NEED TO BURDEN MY FELLOW LISTENERS AND ME WITH 20,000 SONGS PER PROJECT?

I just do not get it.¬†“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven, except your mixtape bruh (Ecclesiastes 3:1).” Yo, that is biblical b, you should listen to what the prophet has to say. He is spitting the word of God, a/k/a the originator of “Let’s Build.”

The mentality that one should be constantly releasing project, track, and videos one after the other is a good thing and I do not mean to disparage anyone on that work out plan. However, dropping a twenty-five track mixtape without is not the same and should be stopped. There have been only a small number of exceptional projects of said length, where every song has been on point. Usually, longer LPs (especially in hip-hop) have an excess amount of dead weight and fluff. Listeners do not want to sit through filler.

Sporadic releases will allow you to keep you audiences attention over a longer period of time, but also not necessarily discredit your album creation talents. If you take your strongest ten tracks, sequences them properly, then drop said project…your fans will hail you as the shit. An hour is a lot of time to commit, so please take people’s time seriously.

It will be hard to say goodbye to some tracks, but believe me, your album will be better for it.

The moral of this post is: instead of listening to that wack dudes 96 track album, you should check out our latest playlist below. Stop being wack kid.
