CRITIC’S PICK: In 2023, “Scaring The Hoes” doesn’t have to be a negative. The phrase - which, in the context of music, Urban Dictionary describes as “plays music that is not appealing or -“mainstream’ in a sense - has been reclaimed by two of raps bravest hoe-scaring warriors and used as name for the duo’s recent collaborative album.However, the album title is true to the content that lies beneath the cover. Danny and JPEG have, in their typical fashion, created music that is very unorthodox and challenging, mashing R&B samples, hand claps, saxophone solos, guitar breaks, and more into what is currently my favorite album of the year. - Matthew Warhol
