21 Savage – Issa Album (Epic Records)

This project is likely the closest 21 will get to mainstream appeal. The album overall is a lot more consumer friendly than Savage Mode, but that’s not to say this album doesn’t have its fair share of Bangers. Defiantly worth a listen even if you weren’t a 21 fan at first. Favorites: 1, 2, 9, […]

Young Thug – Beautiful Thugger Girls (1017 Records)

AMAZING. Thugga kills it as always! Sweet singing project that is defiantly a departure from some of his trappier old music, but it still pays homage to its roots. Lots of killer features. Listen if you like music. Favorites: 2, 6, 7 FCC: ALL

A$AP Twelvyy – 12 (A$AP Worldwide)

Strong project from an often-overlooked ASAP contributor. Elements of ASAP, Pro ERA and Flatbush all come together to produce a sound that is immediately recognizable as NY. Favorites: 4, 10, 11 FCC: Clean version on Spotify

EARTHGANG – Rags EP (Dreamville Records)

Sick EP, awesome features and dope verses from some of Dreamville and associates finest. J.I.D and Mick Jenkins really shine, but this project does a good job of demonstrating the many different flows Earthgang can serve up. Check if you like J. Cole. Favorites: 1, 3, 5 FCC: ALL

XXXTENTACION – 17 (EMPIRE Distribution)

Not the angry yelling we have grown to expect from XXX, on this album he demonstrates solid vocal and lyrical versatility over several almost acoustic sounding beats that give the project a very personal feel. Worth a listen. Favorites: 2, 5, 11 FCC: ALL

Lil Uzi Vert – Luv Is Rage 2 (Atlantic Records)

Coming off the summer hit XO Tour Life, little Uzi had a lot of hype around this project and he delivers. It is quintessential Uzi, combining themes of heartbreak, womanizing, and partying over for the most part fun upbeat production. Play if you like Young Thug, Playboi Carti. Favorites: 2,4,11,15 all Bangerz FCC: Clean version […]
