Portland rapper Aminé’s personality simultaneously feels like seasoned pop star and total weirdo, and it’s a millennial blend that millions of us are here for. He won a lot of hearts (and a #11 on Billboard’s Hot 100) with an addictive ear-catching cut from his first album (“Caroline”), and now latest release ONEPOINTFIVE is winning over our hearts, minds, and hips.
The dance-able sound of ONEPOINTFIVE is almost entirely credited to Aminé, who co-produced the album as well as rapping on every track (with features from Gunna, Rico Nasty and G Herbo). The beats are infectious and club-ready, and Aminé’s knack for playfully and artistically dropping serious truths (combined with hilarious interludes from viral comedian Rickey Thompson) make this project worthy of bumping on repeat.
