Luvadocious 2015

"Luvadocious is that rare beast in an age of disposable, drive-by culture: A project from a lesser known voice that requires and deserves repeat listens and digestion over time. Produced entirely by Rogers Jr.’s collaborator Drew Scott, Luvadocious has a real cohesion and sonic richness that invite exploration more so than immediate satisfaction." -Jon Tanners via Complex Mag

Al Rogers Jr. BrightHeartedNigga EP 2017

"Al Rogers Jr. has never been afraid to be himself, and his heart-on-his-sleeve authenticity has allowed him to make some of the best hip-hop in the city. But as earnest as the local rapper might be, his true talent lies in his ability to surprise, from 2015’s Outkast-inspired Luvadocious with Blacksage’s Drew Scott to the star tracks on this brand-new second record. Now, Rogers stands alone, more confident and deliberate than ever, with tight, measured rhymes and a few standout melodies. “Sayno” might be our favorite song of Al’s thus far—a cantering Spanish ballad that tells the story of love lost through hushed lyrics, rhythmic finger snaps, the quivering heartache of violin, and a final flutter of piano. To all of that, we say yes." -Lydia Woolever via Baltimore Magazine
