The Zanders Review: Painting Pictures

Kodak Black has become a cult icon in the state of Florida over the course of the last three years. His infamous Kodak Black Dance, putting his pinkie on his teeth, and his hit singles have carried him to an elite status amongst high-school and college-aged Floridians.

So far, the 19-year old rapper has only released mixtapes, which are basically free versions of an album. This all changed on March 31 when he released his first studio album “Painting Pictures.” The 18-track debut album comes on the heels of his chart-topping single “Tunnel Vision,” in which he invented a new dance craze that swept the south by storm.

The Zanders Review: Rather You Than Me

On March 17, 41-year-old hustler turned rapper Rick Ross released his ninth studio album “Rather You than Me.”

Rather You Than Me is an album that is best listened to off the coast of a beach with a fancy drink in your hand.  It just has a rich, luxurious vibe to it. From the opulent think piece “Scientology” to the silky “Santorini Greece,” the album sounds like an ode to the old Grecian days.
