Janet Jackson is trying to pull a fast one

Well “20 Y.O.” comes out today, and I for one can’t buy into the hype.

“Since the release of her 1986 groundbreaking album Control, Janet Jackson has done just that by taking control of her career. Her groundbreaking musical style, compelling music videos and show stopping performances have impacted the world, making her an international iconic superstar. Janet’s new album 20 Y.O. is the celebration of her 20 years since taking control and shows why she remains a staple in mainstream popular music.”

I love how people just completely ignore the fact that she had 2 albums before “Control”. Not me. I bet if I tried hard enough, I could go through my mother’s album collection and find them shits. Nigga, I remember “Dream Street”, don’t try to hide that from me. It’s true, your career was heading down the same path as LaToya & Rebbie before Jam & Lewis got fired by Prince and you all hooked up in Minneapolis, but that’s no reason to pretend the previous 4 years didn’t happen. Embrace the wackness. It’s what made you, you. We’ll still love you, even if you are fucking Master Splinter

Album Review

This right here, is the shit. I have a couple buddies in radio, and I got my hands on this about a week ago but never listened to it until today. After 4 albums, Luda finally put it all together. His previous albums were pretty hit or miss. For every banger there was questionable song to balance it out, but this one is hands down his best work, no question. Go out and buy this shit, trust me.
