Another week of new music for the Hip-Hop and R&B lovers.
24hrs – Houses On The Hill
I’d always been f***in’ with 24hrs since he was in the D.C. area going by another name (which found him in some legal trouble). With that said, I’m very happy to see that the Atlanta-based artist has delivered his official debut album titled Houses On The Hill, which sees executive production from Hit-Boy and Ty Dolla $ign (someone who’s been riding for him heavy) and additional appearances from DOM KENNEDY, Vic Mensa, Moneybagg Yo, MadeinTYO, Lil Pump, Smokepurpp, PnB Rock and more. Vibe to it below.
City Girls – Girl Code
I’ll be honest, I’m just getting to know who the City Girls are. Not that my tardiness makes a difference, as the Miami duo has been setting the streets on fire, even with one of its members currently in prison. Now aligned with Quality Control, City Girls now deliver a new project titled Girl Code, a proper follow-up to their well-received debut PERIOD. Cardi B, Lil Baby and Jacquees provide assistance, but it’s clear that J.T. and Yung Miami have the talent and star power to hold their own.
If you’re late in the game like myself, you can catch up below.
Mike WiLL Made-It – Creed II: The Album
I know that, once Mike WiLL Made-It took the reigns on the music accompaniment to the forthcoming Creed sequel, that our audio experience would be in good hands. Today, we see that project — Creed II: The Album — come to fruition, which features a plethora of Mike’s usual suspects and more — Lil Wayne, Nas, J. Cole, Vince Staples, Ella Mai, A$AP Rocky, Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross, Rae Sremmurd, Gucci Mane, YG, Gunna and more join in on the fun. Even Creed star Tessa Thompson appears on the tracklist, adding to the all-around effort from the acclaiming Atlanta super-producer. Check it out below.
Big K.R.I.T. – Thrice X
4eva Is A Mighty Long Time (hell, even Cadillactica) are still in my regular rotation, but I’m always keeping an eye out for new music from Big K.R.I.T. While I am not sure that this is it, fans should be happy to receive a new three-song EP from the Mississippi artist/producer titled Thrice X, which you can stream below. I may need to live with it a bit longer (or, just hold out for that next album).
Anderson .Paak – Oxnard
This project doesn’t need much setup. Anderson .Paak‘s Oxnard is probably the most anticipated album of this week, and no one’s expecting the Aftermath artist’s new effort to be anything short of amazing. Fronted by the Kendrick Lamar-assisted single “Tints,” this funky number also sees assistance from Pusha T, BJ The Chicago Kid, Q-Tip, J. Cole, Snoop Dogg, (bossman) Dr. Dre and more. Just press play and be hella impressed.
Leikeli47 – Acrylic
Brooklyn’s own masked artist Leikeli47 is here with a new album titled Acrylic. As with her identity, I don’t know much about the pieces that came together to make this album (although it’s clear DJ Paul had a hand in it), you can expect the same off-kilter, fresh air vibe of Hip-Hop influences this side of M.I.A. and related artists. Walk ins are welcome.
Kirk Knight – IIWII
In addition to Joey BADASS‘ success, fellow Pro Era comrade Kirk Knight has been (quietly?) killing the game both behind in the boards and in front of the microphone. With that said, the New York multi-talent returns with a new project titled IIWII, which sees 12 new cuts and a single appearance from Lucille Gotti. Enjoy below.
Mariah Carey – Caution
The fact that Gunna‘s on here is good enough reason to stream at least once. Legendary R&B star Mariah Carey is back with her fifteenth studio album titled Caution, which — in addition to Gunna — sees appearances/production assistance from Blood Orange, Slick Rick, Ty Dolla $ign, Timbaland, Nineteen85, Mustard, Skrillex and more. Stream Mimi’s latest below.
Birdman & Jacquees – Lost At Sea 2
A couple of years after the original Lost At Sea, Birdman and his more recent Cash Money talent Jacquees deliver the sequel, a 14-track offering that sees additional appearances from Trey Songz and bunch of other artists I’m not yet familiar with. Check out Lost At Sea 2 below.
