Another Friday, another set of dope releases for you to add to your collection. Without further adieu…
Phonte – No News Is Good News
What? Phonte dropped a new album? Some two years ago, the Little Brother alum spoke of No News Is Good News, an official follow-up to 2011’s Charity Starts At Home. Now, that project arrives with 10 new tracks and features from Freddie Gibbs and Eric Roberson — a surprise for the fans, as well as “for Dad, Grandad, Uncle Mike and Aunt Donna.” Very excited to unpack this one.
Tory Lanez – Memories Don’t Die
I Told You solidified his career; his latest will continue that momentum. Following his 2016 debut, Canadian star Tory Lanez delivers Memories Don’t Die, which comes with 18 tracks and appearances from Future, NAV, 50 Cent, Fabolous, Wiz Khalifa and more. Vibe with Tory’s latest below. Also included: a music video for “Skrt Skrt” and a very impressive ‘Five Fingers Of Death’ on Sway In The Morning.
Valee – GOOD Job, You Found Me
Chicago’s Valee is looking to follow in Kanye West’s footsteps, literally: thanks to President Pusha T, his debut release, GOOD Job, You Found Me, sees the light of day on ‘Ye’s G.O.O.D. Music imprint. The six-track EP also features the Pusha T-assisted “Miami.”
Tech N9ne – Planet
Twenty years in, Tech N9ne delivers his 20th album Planet, of which he explained the meaning (source):
I wanted to create my own planet because this one seems to be having so many problems with hatred and murders… I just wanted to leave this planet and create my own, with love and lyrics.
Planet sees 16 tracks with features from Navé Monjo (who appears on three tracks), Machine Gun Kelly, Krizz Kaliko and more.
Sneakbo – Brixton
South London’s Sneakbo (finally!) delivers his new album Brixton, an obvious ode to his stomping grounds. The 19-track, genre-bending release sees appearances from Giggs, Not3s, Yungen, Afro B, Conor Maynard and more.
