This week had so much new music that we needed to drop a caveat:
In more ways than one, it is great ensuring there is something for everyone, no matter the mood you’re in.
Get that cold drink, chill by that pool, whip out those AirPods, and set it to the right volume to any of these offerings from Mozzy, J. Cole, Joey, and a host of others.
Lil Uzi Vert – Red & White EP
This project is available on Soundcloud, marking Uzi’s continued attempt to retrace his steps, retain relevance, while also trying new sounds.
After the release of “Demon High,” Uzi is taking a page out of Joey’s book as we await the release of The Pink Tape.
However, instead of titbits, we are getting a buffet.
Joey Bada$$ – 2000
2000 is here. Finally, Joey gave us snippets until he had us hooked, and now, in his kindness, he has dropped the full album.
Dreamville (J. Cole, J.I.D., Sheck Wes, & Kenny Mason) – Stick
It’s becoming rarer for multi-artist collaborations to become bangerz, but the Dreamville artists never miss.
“Stick” is no different.
Mac Miller – I Love Life, Thank You
It has been more than three years since Mac Miller’s death, but we’ve got posthumous drops. This week, the Miller estate made his sixth mixtape, I Love Life, available on streaming platforms.
Internet Money (feat. Lil Tecca and Ken Carson) – She Want Some More
Let us know what you think of this new banger.
Slump6s – Genesis
The New York rap scene was in a bit of a tizzy when Funk Flex hit back at Conway the Machine for saying he is gatekeeping.
The beef did not last long, ending in a peaceful collab.
However, in the middle of all that, the Empire state, the concrete jungle where dreams are made of, was about to give us something fresh: Slump6s.
The 17-year-old rapper has just released his album Genesis; the album boasts the new single “Red” feat. Destroy Lonely.
The fusion of sounds, the experimentation with beats, and the vocals of Slump6s make this a must-listen.
This is a teen that is going places and one to keep a weathered eye on.
Mozzy – Survivor’s Guilt
This 15-track masterpiece from a veteran and CMG labelmate (Yo Gotti is putting in that workk!) boasts features from Roddy Ricch, Moneybagg Yo, and Blac Youngsta.
Daru – Let Go
With all that’s happening on our piping hot planet, including political unrest, diseases and poisonous pink sauces running amok; we’re raising our vibration with the Holistic Banji himself, Daru.
This Newark, NJ artist’s new single “Let Go” is “kinetic energy” and a form of “moving meditation” to enjoy when driving on the highway as the sun sets, painting, dancing, or even cleaning.
Let’s raise the frequency, people. Peace.
