Just in time for the spring, the “thug Mrs.” of TDE brings us her album Z, a warm yet dark and very eclectic mix of ethereal yet easily relatable music. If you haven’t heard of SZA, I’d describe her as a hiphop Corinne Bailey Rae, with a sultry voice that is both relaxing and emotion evoking while using grimy beats and killer collabos to give you a finished project that is more simultaneously refreshing and gutta than you could ever imagine. She has been making waves for over the past year after releasing her first EP as an unsigned artist entitled S. It’s not hard at all to see why the TDE team deemed her a thrilling and innovative addition. Monday she dropped a refreshed version of her hit Bablyon along with an always stellar Kendrick verse hours before the album Z hit iTunes. It’s def worth the money but if you don’t have the cash flow at the moment, check out the Spotify stream of the album below [Julia became a favorite of mine immediately, with Child’s Play ft Chance the Rapper as a close second!] and let me know what you think!
