I guess you could say I was a late adopter in the case of Spotify. Partly because I didn’t dig the idea of connecting through Facebook (because I’m not a fan of Facebook) and partly because I didn’t feel like downloading anymore apps. After discovering the web player and getting over my FB bullshit I began listening to so many albums through Spotify.
So I spent the better half of this morning listening to Smoke DZA‘s dope ass new project. There are some really dope cuts on this project and I must say, it caught me off guard.
“This year is my year to be completely independent, through and through” DZA told us back in January. “To take ownership of my creations and destiny. To do it the way I want to do it. To do it with the niggas I want to do it with. So that I’m 100% sure that you, that kid somewhere, that kid anywhere, is getting it how I want you to get it. That good ol American Dream. Complete independence. Total Freedom from whatever you may be experiencing in life. That’s the purpose of music and the results of great music. So just keep one lit and listen closely as you dream, zone, achieve.”
