Another Friday, another offering of dope new music to help create the soundtrack to your weekend. Check ’em out below.
Black Panther: The Album
Naturally, this one was the highest anticipated. Kendrick Lamar and Top Dawg Entertainment created the musical accompaniment to the forthcoming release Black Panther, and they didn’t disappoint. In addition to K. Dot and his TDE cohorts (SZA, ScHoolboy Q, Jay Rock, Ab-Soul), James Blake, Future, Anderson .Paak, Vince Staples, 2 Chainz and more contribute to the strong offering. Enjoy the sonic preview of what’s sure to be a great cinematic experience for superhero fans and movie buffs alike below.
Fredo – Tables Turn
Fredo (not to be confused with the late Fredo Santana) is definitely one of the top tier acts to look out for in 2018. Case in point, his new project Tables Turn, which sees 13 tracks and appearances from Not3s, Ratlin, Desiigner, Dave East (the latter two of whom join Fredo on “Keep It Real” and more). Press play below and look out for more from the West Londoner this year.
Mist – Diamond In The Dirt
Following the blazing hot single “Game Changer” comes Mist‘s new release Diamond In The Dirt, an 8-track EP that sees appearances from Not3s (who’s clearly on a run himself), MoStack, Nines, Haile and more. Check out the latest from the Birmingham star below, along with a recent sit-down with Beats 1’s Julie Adenuga.
2 Chainz – The Play Don’t Care Who Makes It
TRU. 2 Chainz decided to surprise the masses with a brand new 4-track EP titled The Play Don’t Care Who Makes It (dopest title ever). The probably NBA All-Star Game-inspired release sees contributions from YG, Offset, T-Minus, Street Runner and more.
