But really, Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight is finally here, and I couldn’t be more excited.
I’m currently tuned in to Beats1 Radio… more specifically .wav Radio, listening to the live stream of Travi$ Scott’s new album. He’s also going through each song with his boy the OG Chase B, and this is what really gets me excited for new music. Yes, I love the beats and lyrics and features, but when the actual artist explains what each song means to them, how it came together, etc, that makes me appreciate the project even more.
Like right now Travi$ is explaining how he got Kendrick on a track. That’s so dope. I’ll be updating this post throughout the day as I continue to listen and as more random thoughts come to mind so definitely keep checking back on this one.
UPDATE 10:12AM: Did yinz hear that Bryson Tiller track? I definitely wasn’t expecting that collaboration. Holy smokes. Glad it happened. Currently playing is ‘Guidance,’ and it has a different Travi$ vibe to it, almost like a little Drake-island vibe. I dig it.
UPDATE 10:14AM: Wowwww, ending with ‘Wonderful.’ That is truly wonderful. It’s not that I forget about this song, but I don’t always play it, but I love it… probably doesn’t make sense to you but to me it does. And with the addition of The Weeknd’s vocals… magic. Really glad the album ends on this note.
UPDATE 10:22AM: BITTSM is finally available on Apple Music. Praise the streaming gawds.
Oh, and tonight… is about to be lit so stay chuned.
Happy Friday, yinz!
