EMILY BERKEY REVIEW: KABOOM! MAGAZINE x DJ CARISMA PRESENTS BRAND NEW
– Reviewer: Emily Berkey [The Source, Oregon State University] Although this mixtape starts out with a rather weak and poppy sounding first track from Finatticz, the subsequent down-tempo track by Casey Veggies more than makes up for it. DJ Carisma transforms the mood of this inaugural Kaboom! Magazine mixtape from mellow to upbeat starting with “Kiss The Freak” by Mucho Dinero and Too Short, followed by club-worthy tracks from Sage The Gemini and French Montana. juicy_j_stay_trippy_432421 “Show Out” by Juicy J, which features Jeezy, is self-explanatory. If you want to hear Juicy J rap about how he shows out, definitely listen to this. Surprisingly, “Twerk” by Problem is a rather down-tempo track and, to be honest, it was hard to imagine someone twerking to it. “On It” featuring Young Scooter by Chief Keef made me wish Keef had used auto tune while he was singing, however the next track, which is a remix to Love Sosa, entitled “Love Coca” by Honey Cocaine features a killer first verse from the pint sized MC., skip the intro to this song and get straight to her spitting. 83a8d6e1 “Long Live A$AP” by A$AP Rocky is a must hear; along with a surprisingly ear-pleasing track from Trinidad James entitled “Females Welcome”. “Rappin’” by AD features Mil$ and is a must listen, as it is one of the most well written songs on this first Kaboom! Magazine mixtape, Tracks by Compton’s Buck, Revenge of the Nerds, Super Helpful, Joey Bada$$, and Kyd Ayo wrap the tape up on a sexy, down-tempo note. However, I suggest you skip Iggy Azalea’s closing contribution.
