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.”

The Best of 2016: Rob Jensen

Overall, I thought it was a pretty good year for music, but a number of times some of the albums I was most excited about lost something after numerous listen throughs. Continued →
