Lil' Dre Posts 4 Tracks Ahead of "Live Free" Release

We’re hard at work on our review of Lil’ Dre’s upcoming album Live Free, but you can already check out four of the tracks from this landmark album through Dre’s Soundcloud page.

Live Free is chock-full of powerful tracks, but this sample does include a few of my personal favorites (as you’ll read about in the upcoming review), like “Scottie Pippen,” and “P.O.V.”

Live Free will drop next week, but while you’re on Dre’s soundcloud, you can also stream his previous effort Homework, which we gave a 5/5, especially noting how “Dissertation” may be one of the most honest and powerful songs out there. Continued →

REVIEW : Lil' Dre - Homework

Lil’ Dre is back. Having tackled marriage and a few kids since his last album, Dre brings an amazing perspective on what it means to put Christ first and working on your home life second. Intelligent, catchy, and FREE (for following @lildrechurchboy on Twitter). Lil’ Dre’s “Homework” is perhaps the album to beat in the early part of this year.

REVIEW : Disciple - Attack

Veteran hard rockers Disciple return with their newest album, “Attack.” Functionally their first independent album since “Back Again,” and bringing a sound that combines that album with their later works, “Attack” is an assault from start to finish. But, does this album live up to its massively successful kickstarter campaign? Read on to find out.
