#7SONGSAWEEK REVIEW / by Noor Kalouti

Hi all, it’s been a GREAT week for music!

We finally have Earl’s album Some Rap Songs, along with new releases from Saba, FKJ & Obongjayar.

As I mentioned last week I’m in the midst of polishing all the materials for my graduate application—so the blog is currently on the back-burner. However, soon after December 18th (deadline) I will be dropping the second episode of Overdue Review and so much more exciting content!

So for today I will not be delving into each track, but don’t worry the music speaks for itself!
