This weekend record stores across the country are celebrating Record Store day. Saturday will mark the 15th anniversary of the event where independent music  stores celebrate those 12 inch vinyl records that once l fueled the creation of hip hop. For music enthusiast like myself it  will be a day to listen to some great music.  

Before playlist were a thing, music stores was the place to hang and talk about music releases For me record stores were the meeting ground for people who otherwise would not be in the same room share their love of their favorite artist. So, if have you have time this Saturday I  encourage you all who have never experienced vinyl records  to go out and support your local music stores and enjoy music the way it was originally created.

Blxst is back with his second studio album Before You Go. Over the last two years Blxst has been putting in work to rise to the top of charts from linking up with Nas to Dom Kennedy. Blxst’s second album builds on his momentum from his debut No Love Lost.

Blxst’s latest project is 13 tracks long and has features from Rick Ross, Arin Ray and Zacari from TDE. The latest offering from Blxst is a solid nod to his growth as he has shown that he is here to stay. My favorite songs on the album include Sky Lounge Music,” “Fake Love in La,” “Sometimes”, and “About You”.
