Plenty of new music for your (Summer-esque) weekend (NOTE: I know it’s Sunday. We’re late. Enjoy the music and/or shut up). Enjoy below.
Desiigner – L.O.D.
I think we’ve been waiting for Desiigner‘s L.O.D. (Life OF Desiigner) to make landfall for a while now. What was expected to be an official debut album is now a (surprise) 7-track EP that sees the legendary Mike Dean as executive producer. Nonetheless, the turn-up continues for the Brooklyn emcee…check that out below, along with visuals for “Priice Tag” and “Tonka.”
Preme – Light Of Day
Another L.O.D. project sees the light of day (see what I did there?). My own corniness aside, Canadian star Preme delivers his new album titled Light Of Day, which comes with 15 tracks and appearances from Lil Wayne, PARTYNEXTDOOR, Offset, Post Malone, Murda Beatz, DJ Mustard, Ty Dolla $ign and YG. Somewhat surprisingly, OVO boss and close friend Drake doesn’t show up on the tracklisting.
As I’m about to do, you should press play on Preme’s latest ASAP. You can check out a few visuals from the man formerly known as P Reign below as well.
Blocboy JB – Simi
Much in part thanks to Drake, Memphis star Blocboy JB has been sailing in the commercial realm thanks to tracks like “Look Alive,” A$AP Rocky‘s “Bad Company,” “Rover 2.0” (with 21 Savage) and more. Now, he delivers his new project Simi, named after a fallen friend that passed away on Mother’s Day.
In addition to the aforementioned, the 18-track project also sees appearances from YG, Lil Pump and Moneybagg Yo…in addition to the album below, you can also check out a new visual for “No Chorus Pt. 11.”
Styles P – G-Host
Following the slept-on Nickel Bag EP, legendary LOX member Styles P delivers a brand new album titled G-Host, his first since 2015’s A Wise Guy and A Wise Guy. Additional appearances include Oswin Benjamin, Nino Man, Scram Jones and more.
Rae Sremmurd – SR3MM
This is probably the biggest release for the weekend. Not only did Rae Sremmurd deliver a dope new project as a group, they also delivered as solo projects: Swae Lee brought the Swaecation while Jxmmi gave us Jxmtro.
Royce Da 5’9″ – Book Of Ryan
Royce Da 5’9″ delivers the Book of Ryan.
If you’re a Royce Da 5’9″ fan, you really don’t have anything to complain about. Not only did he just recently drop off the second installment of PRhyme alongside DJ Premier, he’s also blessed the masses with a new album of his own titled Book Of Ryan. In addition to the bars (and this being his most personal project to date), additional appearances include Eminem, Boogie, J. Cole (“Boblo Boat”), Pusha T, Jadakiss, Fabolous, Marsha Ambrosius and more. Press play below.
