Drake - The Best In The World (EP)

Drake always talks a big game and he tends to deliver.

The Toronto Raptors’ ambassador lets off a small EP to celebrate the NBA team winning the title on Thursday night. Seems like even the Drake Sports Curse couldn’t hold them back on their road to their first championship. The reward: new music.

Drake strings along the mob ties role by releasing “Omerta” (a code of silence) & “Money in the Grave” with Rick Ross. Both songs being streams of raps from Drake as he writes checks that his mouth can cash.

Enjoy!

Lily Rayne - FEMME (EP)

“Sometimes I think you don’t want my love” softly sings an honest Lily Rayne to start her newest project, “FEMME”.

Lily Rayne has a knack for bringing us into her realm through her lens and she makes it seem effortless. Each song pairs with the other well to take us on a balanced ride for 20 minutes. For every emotional “How Do You Feel” there is a more confident “I Might” to go with it.

Stream the cohesive “FEMME” on all streaming services!

Lucky Daye - Painted (Album)

As the summer comes closer and the albums start dropping, roll some mo’.

Luck Daye slides through with a “Painted” after a couple of EP’s to keep us entertained.
Leading with some stand outs like “Roll Some Mo”, “Karma”, and “Misunderstood” he adds on to his impressive work. Very excited to listen to more from him!

Enjoy!

Steve Lacy - Apollo XXI (Album)

After a handful of successful outings the past few years, Steve Lacy drops another project with “Apollo XXI”.

12 songs full of Steve’s patented bass-line grooves and soft serenades. Always excited when The Internet drops, even more-so when the members drop solo projects. Dive into the vibes as he lets this one go at a great time of the year.

Ceez & Pyrex Lex - Iceberg (Album)

That’s quite a chill for a day in March.

Ceez & Pyrex Lex have both been in the hyperbolic chamber for quite a while working on this one and the final product was worth the wait.
They had the family touching this one too as ClarkWork produced every joint (with additional production from Danny Keyz) and a sole feature from Lily Rayne.

Each joint on the top half has them bodying beats with well-fitting hooks that keep the songs together tastefully. Once we hit the interlude we get even more variety as they close the project with some smoother melodies. All great songs, top to bottom, to chill to full of moments for all kinds of listeners.

Enjoy!

DaBaby - Baby On Baby (Album)

Zero to one hundred, real quick.

From the first 20 seconds you’ll know if DaBaby is for you ‘cus he’ll already have spit about 100 words, probably.
I’ll say it now: he’s dope.

The combination of steez, bars, cadences, and overall tasteful braggadocio adds up into unavoidable head knocking and face scrunching.
”Suge” is definitely a stand-out joint as well as “Baby Sitter”, which also holds a potent feature from Offset.

Enjoy!

2 Chainz - Rap Or Go To The League (Album)

After some dope promotion and great peeks into this joint, 2 Chainz posts up hard with “Rap or Go to the League”.

As someone who was looking forward to 2 Chainz having a great 2018 (and was disappointed) he comes out swinging with his 5th studio album.
Besides a couple tracks that feels like wasted opportunities this has the potential to be his best drop yet.

Enjoy!

Kehlani - While We Wait (Album)

Kehlani - While We Wait

Here we have a project by Kehlani called “While We Wait.” It consists of 9 songs so I’m assuming that this is just a few songs that she wanted to give to her fans as they wait for the full project. 

It has been almost 2 years since her last project “SweetSexySavage.” That project received mixed reviews but I think it was a solid second project and showcased growth. She has been dealing with pregnancy and other issues and her growth continued to shine on this project. Her voice has progressively improved throughout the years along with her lyrical content. This project is definitely worth a listen and i am looking forward to her full album. Also, take a sec to check out our other various posts. Spread Love.

ELHAE - Trouble In Paradise (Album)

ELHAE - Trouble in Paradise

Here we have a project from a super-talented artist by the name of ELHAE. He makes some really good R&B and I think he will become a known name in years to come.

If you love R&B, I definitely recommend this project. This project took him 2 years to complete and I love when artists take their time with projects. The quality is some of the best I’ve heard in a long time. I think people will really appreciate the way he uses his voice and the way he flows on the tracks. This is a really good project that is definitely worth the listen. Also, take a sec to check out our other various posts. Spread Love.

WHYTRI - Lucies vol. 1 (EP)

The hits keep on hitting.

WHYTRI, fresh off his first headlining show, drops off a pack of random joints title “Lucies Vol. 1”.
He claims them to be throwaways that didn’t make his project, “A Bad Porno” but they hold weight on their own, no question.
Holds a sole feature from Nino, some production from Nick Costa, IceKrim and even a couple songs produced by the man himself!

Rock to these and “ABP” for a dope time.

Offset - Father of 4 (Album)

WOO WOO WOO HEY *Offset voice*
The most anticipated Migos solo project has dropped in the form of Offset’s “Father of 4”.

After both Takeoff and Quavo’s projects were rushed and flopped, Offset’s tape releases a lot later and I’m excited to see if he learned from their mistakes. The cover features all 4 of his children and is arguably the worst cover of the year.
With many features throughout the project, Gunna, Travis Scott and J. Cole reign supreme.

Stream that above.

Giggs - Big Bad... (Album)

Hollowman Giggs returns to the scene with a project titled “Big Bad…”

Giggs hopped on a couple tracks in 2018, but nothing major. It’s clear he was in the studio working on his new album. He has a handful of features, the most notable ones being Lil Yachty, French Montana, Swizz Beatz and Jadakiss.

Go check out the gritty U.K. rapper now!
-PJ

Gunna - Drip Or Drown 2 (Album)

Gunna really does his thing all over “Drip or Drown 2”.

The 16 tracks are more than plentiful and includes features from Lil Baby, Young Thug and Playboi Carti. With Lil Baby dropping his project, “Street Gossip”, in 2018, we were waiting on Gunna and he delivered.

Stream it above or on your favorite platform.

Cam Bells - C.B.P.V.D. (Album)

Life’s all about timing.

Finally we get another project from the Prince of PVD, Cam Bells, and it’s worth the wait.
Since dropping “Young King, Old Soul” back in 2017 he’s been slowly crafting this piece of work together. It shows.

Whereas its predecessor had him kicking some raps this one is full of sensual R&B vibes to set the mood and unwind to. Great samples used as well, that never goes unnoticed.

Enjoy!

Josh Dixon - Love Pains (Album)

East Chain still going heavy.

Add this to another release out of the East Atlanta homies as Josh Dixon hits us with the R&B vibes.
”Love Pains” is just that and it’s something we can all relate to as he hits us with joints about dealing with heartbreak, moving on, and losing love. Old school feelings with new age flair attached to it.

Let this one play for a bit!
-Louie

LightSkinKeisha - That's Just The Bottom Line (Album)

YES.

Another artist who’s been having a low-key great year is none other than LightSkinKeisha.
After singles on singles, fire videos and just an incredible aesthetic building around her we get the debut, “That’s Just The Bottom Line”.

From start to finish we get the Keisha we love: loud, catchy, provocative with dope bars.
Excited to see what 2019 has lined up for her!
Enjoy this til then!

21 Savage - I Am > I Was (Album)

Isn’t it fun watching artists progress?

21 Savage said “hol’ up” and joins in on 2018’s onslaught of album releases.
All throughout we’re getting some different sounds from him and that’s great to hear as he’s still pushing out fire songs all over.

All year he’s been handling features so it was only right he ended it by blessing us with a plethora of joints.
Enjoy!
-Louie

Khary - Uhhh (EP)

UHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.

Khary still keeps us on our toes and surprises us with an EP!
The intro itself, “Why”, opens the project with a very honest Khary questioning his purpose and sparking a new journey.
The well-set tone of the first song carries us through the rest of the 6 song project that’ll have you saying “uhhh, this is dope” many times throughout.

Enjoy!
-Louie

Nino - There's No Love After Sunset (EP)

Who do you have when the sun sets?

Nino has been having us in our feels all year and this one is no different! He’s been really working on perfecting the vibe and it’s definitely reflecting in the music.
Here’s “There’s No Love After Sunset” featuring six joints to dive into.

From the first few listens the bottom half is without question a standout part of this joint.
”Hplss” & “Rmntc” flow effortlessly into each other right before Nino lays down chill bars of introspection to remind us he can still rap.

Enjoy!
