Grip - Snubnose (Album)

Love it when rappers still rap.

Grip showcases what he’s got to offer with his latest project, “Snubnose”, as he loads up various flows in his arsenal to leave his mark with each song.
There’s a lot of great music coming from Atlanta right now so add this one to that list.

Enjoy!

Wale - Wow... That's Crazy (Album)

“I’m a glutton for women I shouldn’t yearn for” says Wale in the opening verse of his newest project “Wow… That’s Crazy”.
Just like that, he draws an audience back in who’s been rooting for him to complete a comeback so long in the making. He’s dropped EPs throughout 2018 and some loose singles all year but this is his first full length in a couple years.

The aptly titled return begins with a personal introductory song emphasizing how he’s rooting for all black owned entities that support the culture. The emotional touch is interwoven all throughout this album while also providing random moments of upbeat “turned up” joints.

The whole time has Wale spitting well and sounding the best he’s sounded in quite a while. This project definitely warms the “Blog Era” part of my heart.

Enjoy!

Father - Hu$band (EP)

Awful Records back in this.

Father pulls up on us with a light touch of 6 records. You’ll get something to turn up to. You’ll get something to vibe to. You’ll get something to blast. You’ll get something to play in the background. Either way, you’ll get all of Father and his unique creativity.

Enjoy!

DaBaby - Kirk (Album)

“DaBaby can’t rap”. “DaBaby sounds the same on every song”. “DaBaby can’t do it again”,
Well… 20 million+ streams in one day later…

DaBaby slides through with “Kirk”, another dope project to keep his momentum of a monstrous rookie year going after his previous project “Baby On Baby” put him on the map.
”Kirk” has him getting more personal as the intro goes right into addressing the passing of his father and how he’s been dealing with it.

Jaye Newton - Just Pray For Me (Album)

When the prayers go up, the blessings come down.

Jaye Newton comes all the way correct on “Just Pray For Me” from 0:01 to 55:00. He slings so many personal raps to invite us in even more to his life. BossMan laces all of the production and engineering minus “Sweeter Than Honey” and “Trouble In Paradise”, which were produced by none other than JaqueBeatz.

Newton says he hopes “JPFM” can live forever and inspire people like J. Cole’s “Friday Night Lights”, Saba’s “Care For Me”, Kendrick Lamar’s “Good Kid MAAD City” & all the albums that inspired him coming up. The way this album hits, swerves and transitions gives it a great chance to do just that.

IDK - Is He Real? (Album)

IDK – Is He Real?

               Is He Real? That’s the overarching question in IDK’s introspective debut album. It is an incredibly well mixed, cohesive piece of art. The album flows so damn well from beginning to end, so well that I still don’t know when one song has ended and a new one begins. My attention was held the entire time which is really hard these days... The intro starts with a playful dialogue about what happens when you die, and abruptly ends with blasphemy before we tumble down the rabbit hole. In between this and the outro is a diverse set of songs and interludes that are all unique in their own right. We have features from DMX, who takes on the role of pastor, and some uncredited guest verses from the likes of our legendary cocaine maestro, Pusha T, as well as JID, Tyler the Creator, and Burna Boy. My favorite joint by far was Porno. If you slept on this album, WAKE UP! Even the artwork was fire. IDK kneels between a sheep on one side, and a goat on the other. I love the biblical symbolism.

SAINt JHN - Ghetto Lenny's Love Songs

Hot on the heels of his 2018 release, “Collection One,” SAINt JHN has delivered Ghetto Lenny’s Love Songs, a 14-song album with his genre-blending rapping and singing poured into it. This album has a whole lot of melody. The production doesn’t disappoint at all on this project. If there’s anything SAINt JHN is really good at, it’s writing catchy hooks and refrains. The most surprising guest artist on the album is Lenny Kravitz, who assisted on “Borders”. Other guest artists include Meek Mill, A Boogie, and Lil Baby. Comment below how you felt about the album.

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.
