The Death of Adam
I just recently downloaded 88 Key's album, The Death of Album, after seeing the hilarious video to Stay Up (Viagra) featuring him and Mr. Kanye West and I can honestly say that I was pleasantly suprised by the album. It's a very well done and ecclectic album that follows a guy named Adam and his escapades with females from his hood and how a case of "morning wood" becomes the start to one hell of a bad story. At the end of each song the story progesses through an unnamed woman talking as if she were gossiping at the beauty shop which really gives this album a dope movie-like feel. The album spans 14 songs with features from Kanye West, Kid Cudi, Phonte from Little Brother, J*Davey, Redman and Bilal and touches on various topics that all guys can relate to from being stuck in the dreaded "friend zone" to pregnancy scares. All of the tracks are well done but my personal faves are Stay Up, Dirty Peaches, The Friend Zone and M.I.L.F. I recommend this album to hip-hop fans and fans of good music a like.
Aight i'm out, as the song says...Stay Up!
