February Music Reviews


Satellite Flight: Journey to Mother Moon

Scott Mescudi, also known as Kid Cudi, has released his highly-anticipated album “Satellite Flight: Journey to Mother Moon” Feb. 25. Satellite Flight brings 10 new songs that are a mix of his previous albums WZRD and Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager. The new album features one artist Raphael Saadiq, who is featured in the song Balmain Jeans. Cudi stated that Satellite flight is a preview to what Man on the Moon III will sound like, which is scheduled to release in 2015.

Satellite Flight consist of several news beats that sound like a mash-up of the albums WZRD, Indicud, and the two Man on the Moon albums. The space-themed album focuses more on the beats and instrumental music. Four of the 10 songs are instrumentals and consist of overpowering beats that will blow you away. One thing that Satellite Flight lacks is the emotion that previous albums have held. Satellite Flight has received a 4.5 rating on iTunes. It is the perfect album for anyone who would like a taste of all of the Kid Cudi albums in one.


The new “Oxymoron” album by rap artist Quincy Hanley, also know as ScHoolboy Q, was released Feb 25. “Oxymoron” has been highly anticipated to many people who are a part of the rap/hip-hop culture. The album brings unique thug-style rap music that includes stories from his rough upbringing. After looking at the menacing album cover with artist ScHoolboy Q in a ski mask, you can tell that his music is going to be somewhat dark.

Some of the more popular songs among this 17-track album include “Collard Greens” featuring Kendrick Lamar that has a very energetic beat to it and “Man of the Year.” Personally, my favorite song from this album was “Break the Bank.” The album received over a 4.5 star rating on iTunes. If you’re looking for some good rap music, a little bit of profanity, and want something new, then give “Oxymoron” a try.
