A few albums and some dope EPs for what’s sure to be a warm and debaucherous end-of-March weekend:
Yelawolf – Trunk Muzik 3
It looks like Yelawolf decided to make his last album with Shady Records his best to date. Today, the Alabama artist delivers Trunk Muzik 3, which “gets back to these 808s and classic southern Rap cadences” that I personally became a big fan of which the first installment dropped nine years ago. This go ’round, Yela gives his fans 14 bangers and collabs alongside DJ Paul, Machine Gun Kelly (!), Caskey (someone who really should be bigger than he is with that Cash Money co-sign), the late Pimp C and more.

Lion Babe – Cosmic Wind
Lion Babe — made up of Jillian Hervey and Lucas Goodman — have returned with their official follow-up to 2016’s Begin. Titled Cosmic Wind, the project comes with 15 new tracks, including the Raekwon-assisted “Western World” and “The Wave” with Leikeli47. Soul specialist Bilal also makes an appearance on the track “Can I See It.” Press play on the duo’s latest below.
Boosie Badazz – Badazz 3.5
Louisiana Rap veteran Boosie Badazz follows up last year’s Savage Holidays with a new album titled Badazz 3.5, which sees 15 new tracks and a single feature from longtime partner-in-crime Webbie (for him to only have one assist, that’s a damn good one). Check out the latest serving from Boosie below (would this be ninth album? Tenth? Can’t really tell which are actual albums at this point).
Saweetie – Icy
West Coast star Saweetie gives the masses a taste of what’s to come from her musically via a new EP titled Icy, which features seven new tunes and a couple of appearances from (still beau?) Quavo. Check it out below.
Phonte – Pacific Time
New music from Phonte? Hell yes.
Following last year’s No News Is Good News comes a quickstrike EP from the Little Brother alum titled Pacific Time, and — like the title and artwork might suggest — it’s super-smooth R&B vibes this side of The Foreign Exchange. Enjoy the four-track release below, which also sees assistance from Devin Morrison, Bosco and KAYTRANADA.
Birdman & Juvenile – Just Another Gangsta
It’s like the 99 to the 2000 all over again. Cash Money boss Birdman has reunited with Hot Boy alum Juvenile for a 12-track project titled Just Another Gangsta, which sees a single guest appearance from rising star NLE Choppa. This is definitely that nostalgic blend that’s perfect for the (upcoming) Summer weather.
Etta Bond – He’s Mine
Following the well-received release He’s Not Mine earlier this month, Etta Bond closes out the concept with He’s Mine, which see 9 new tracks and continues the previous release’s topics (love, relationships, sex) from the other side of the spectrum. Stream Etta’s latest below.
