THE B-SIDE
Aminé (Republic)
9/26/17

WHAT IT IS: The artists who move culture forward don’t simply inhabit this world; they create their own. That’s exactly what Aminé did on his 2017 debut, Good For You. Buoyed by his RIAA triple-platinum smash, “Caroline,” and “Wedding Crashers” (f/Offset), the album made an indelible impact upon arrival. XXL chose him for a coveted spot on its 2017 “Freshman Class” cover. In his first major profile, The New York Times described the record as “one of the year’s most intriguing hip-hop albums,” while Pitchfork appropriately called it “the soundtrack for an almost-sober drive home.” Between explosive sets at Lollapalooza and show-stopping performances on The Tonight Show and Late Night with Seth Meyers, Aminé is solidifying himself as a musical force of nature.
