The Cool Kids & The Alchemist - Layups (EP)

“WTF is this!?”

In case y’all missed it, The Cool Kids came out of their hiatus to release a 3-piece EP called Layups. Chuck Inglish briefly hinted at the project earlier this year on Twitter, and, if you follow Sir Michael Rocks’ Twitch stream, you may have heard snippets of it there. Instead of Chuck Inglish handling most of the production this time, they teamed up with legendary producer The Alchemist, who seems to be on fire this summer with his latest releases.

The entire project comes in at less than ten minutes and is worth sparing time for. Mikey and Chuck both have some smooth raps in store, and Boldy James as well as Shorty K, both featured on past Cool Kids projects, make guest appearances. The two tracks I like the most are the titular ‘Layups’ and ‘Polansky’. Polansky is easily my favorite. The beat is a jazzy, cooled down production that sets the tone for some lowkey Black Air Force activity. Boldy James delivered some dope rhymes. 

Be on the lookout for some more heat from The Cool Kids later this year, since they’ve teased a song with Kenny Beats and a new project after that coming soon.

Mac Ayres - Juicebox (Album)

Having all the juice isn’t easy.

Mac Ayres gifts us his third project in as many years with “Juicebox”. This one solidifies his sound even more as he continues to float over groovy production. The slow and smooth joints hit just as nicely too so it provides a mix of great vibes.

Enjoy!

Snoh Aalegra - Ugh, those feels again (Album)

When the snow storm intensifies and the stress gets louder there’s the “go-to” artist we search for to help us through our feels.

Insert Snoh Aalegra

After a successful drop with “Feels”, Snoh Aalegra rewards us with a well-crafted continuation of sorts aptly titled “Ugh, Those Feels Again”. Make no mistake though, in this instance the sequel feels much better than the original. With No I.D. at the helm of the sounds again, Snoh delves deeper into her emotions. This time she pieces herself together in front of us through the music after heartbreak.

Check out her Billboard interview about the album, the process, her personal life in relation to the album and more right here.

Father - a lot on ur plate

Father & Meltycanon are a unfair combination that never misses. 

Here is Fathers newest drop “A lot on ur plate”. 

A melodic record that showcases how versatile father can be. 

I would LOVE a project between Father & Meltycanon I think of all the producers father has worked with Melty captures his sound the best.

Enjoy the new single!

Cousin Stizz - Trying to Find My Next Thrill (Album)

Our favorite Cousin Stizz is back with his brand new album “Trying To Find My Next Thrill”.

A summer isn’t a summer without a stizz project. This time around he brought along $ean Wire, Freddie Gibbs, Smino + more. 

Watching Stizz prosper since “Suffolk County” has been amazing. 
Let’s hope this project puts him in bigger position to keep winning. 
Enjoy the stream!

Tory Lanez - Forever

Betrayals, fake friends and relationships. Things we are all familiar with. Tory Lanez shows us in the video he can relate. The video shows many images of Lanez dealing with arguing in friend groups and shows when things get heated peoples real colors show. Lanezs video shows us that you really never know someones true intentions. Check out the video and let us know your thoughts.

Dreamville - Rotd3.Com

Dreamville has been clearing things out from the sessions early in the year and has finally decided to heat the summer up.

Along with announcing the project is dropping Friday, we get two new cuts as more of a sneak peek into what we can expect. One joint is “Lambo Truck” by Cozz, Reason & Childish Major.

The other has a lot more names to balance as “Costa Rica” features J.I.D, Bas, Ski Mask The Slump God, Smokepurpp, Mez, Guapdad 4000, Reese LaFlare, Jace & Buddy.

Enjoy!

Hil Holla - WCF

The saga continues.
“Please don’t ever pray for me the kid is living off his sins” concludes Hil Holla’s recent single “WCF”.

It’s properly titled “Western Conference Finals” because the energy he exudes on this one is celebratory, as if he’s advanced to the next step but also hungry to make it to the Finals and compete for the title. He also skillfully interweaves a handful of NBA references.

Aside from a couple select features, this is his first offering since dropping the well-received “Outside Providence” three years ago. We’re ready for more.

This is just practice so stay noted!

Despo - Homebody (Remix)

“Come be my Rihanna or my Thotiana, either way” spits Despo to that special person.

Despo gives us a little something by remixing Lil Durk’s “Homebody” to slide some clever bars for his shawty.
Good joint to warm us up until the next drop!

Enjoy!
