Mystery Skulls’ new album ‘One of Us’ barely rises above filler

Sean Armstrong | Staff Writer One of Us, the second studio album of Los Angeles based R&B group Mystery Skulls, is summed up best by the band’s name: a mystery. What is this? Who created this?

‘All Eyez on Me’ may not be that great, but definitely worth a watch
