Kendrick Lamar‘s surprise single aside (as well as Drake‘s recent “playlist project”), Hip-Hop fans will be happy to see plenty of dope new projects for this week. You can check out three such offerings — courtesy of Wu-God Raekwon, D.C.’s GoldLink and Atlanta super-producer Mike Will Made-It — below:
Raekwon – The Wild
When speaking on Rap music, it’s god-level respect for any artist that manages to hold a decade-long career. With that said, Wu-Tang Clan member Raekwon has succeeded in keeping his presence within the culture at or near the front, thanks to consistent drops (from the iconic Only Built 4 Cuban Linx… to the conflicting Shaolin vs. Wu-Tang to 2015’s Fly International Luxurious Art). Today, the Chef liberates his latest release The Wild, which continues his slew of hardcore-yet-educational bars…The Wild also sees appearances from Lil Wayne, Cee-Lo Green, G-Eazy (who holds it down on “Purple Brick Road”) and Andra Day.
GoldLink – At What Cost
GoldLink has kept a pretty secretive profile ever since his debut album And After That, We Didn’t Talk…now, the D.C./V.A. emcee is back with a brand-new offering titled At What Cost, which is led by the singles “Crew” (featuring Brent Faiyaz and Shy Glizzy) and the slightly-controversial “Meditation” (featuring KAYTRANADA and Jazmine Sullivan). In addition, Wale, Kokayi, Mya, Lil Dude and more make memorable appearances, which ultimately gives this album more of a hometown vibe than GoldLink’s debut (And After That, We Didn’t Talk).
Mike Will Made-It – Ransom 2
Fans have been waiting on Mike Will Made-It’s latest effort for a while. More than a year after it was first announced, the Atlanta producer liberates the for-sale mixtape to the masses, preceded by the Rihanna-assisted “Nothing Is Promised” and — more recently — “Gucci On My,” which features 21 Savage, YG and Migos. With all of the star power on Ransom 2 (from Pharrell to Lil Wayne to Kendrick), you can expect this project to produce a lot of radio hits throughout the Summer.
