Some new releases for you urban music lovers on a Summer-y Friday:
Young Thug – Hear No Evil
So, we thought that we wouldn’t hear any music from Young Thug this year, as he previously stated he would go silent in honor of his deaf brother. Now, he bestows that same honor by dropping off the three-song EP Hear No Evil, which sees additional appearances from Nicki Minaj, 21 Savage and Lil Uzi Vert (production comes courtesy of Southside, Rex Kudo, DJ Spinz and Charlie Handsome).
Press play to enjoy Thugger’s latest below, along with a sign language visual for the Nicki-assisted “Anybody.”
Tinashe – Joyride
This album is a long-time coming.
In a perfect world, Tinashe‘s sophomore third album would have come out years ago. Four years after the release of her debut Aquarius (and three years after it was announced), Tinashe finally liberates her official sophomore LP Joyride. The project is led by the singles “No Drama,” “Me So Bad” and “Faded Love,” with additional appearances from Ty Dolla $ign, French Montana, Offset, Future and Little Dragon.
Vibe to Joyride below, along with a Tonight Show performance of “No Drama.”
Carnage – Battered Bruised & Bloody
Guatemala-to-L.A. producer Carnage spent last year dropping some dope collab projects with the likes of Young Thug and G-Eazy (along other notable connections). Now, he brings forth his new album Battered Bruised & Bloody, his official follow-up to 2015’s Papi Gordo. This go-round, the EDM super DJ seems to dive further into the Hip-Hop realm, working with artists like Lil Pump, Deko, Mac Miller, MadeInTYO, Lil B, Young Troy, Migos, Nessly and more. ‘Turn up’ Summer music.
Smokepurpp & Murda Beatz – Bless Yo Trap
For his latest, Floridian emcee Smokepurpp connects with Hip-hop super-producer Murda Beatz for a 10-track project titled Bless Yo Trap. The hard-hitting release also sees appearances from A$AP Ferg, Lil Yachty and Offset (no Lil Pump?).
Check it out below, along with a visual for “123.”
