Probably one of the most fulfilling album release days for Hip-Hop this year. No time to waste:
Tyler, The Creator – IGOR
We’ve seen the beautiful evolution of artist-producer Tyler, The Creator over the course of five releases, beginning with 2009’s Bastard. Now, ten years later, the Cali star pushes the envelope even further with his sixth album IGOR, which sees 12 new tracks and some low-key assistance from Kanye West (who actually appears on a track uncredited), Lil Uzi Vert, Playboi Carti and more. Check it out below, along with an explanation of the genre-bending project straight from the source:

DJ Khaled – Father Of Asahd
Something that deserves the utmost respect: the fact that, prior to this day, DJ Khaled has already delivered ten studio albums to the masses. Now, he brings forth his eleventh: Father Of Asahd, which sees 15 new tracks and appearances from all of the usual suspects and some that may have been collaborated with Khaled as much in the past — Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, SZA, the newly-freed Buju Banton, Big Sean, Cardi B, 21 Savage, the late Nipsey Hussle (the visual for this collaboration is also out now), Nas, Meek Mill, Lil Baby and more. DJ Khaled’s formula has been gold since 2006’s Listennn… the Album…don’t expect Khaled’s reign to take a backseat anytime soon.
Slowthai – Nothing Great About Britain
After some dope visual drops (including one featuring Skepta), Northampton emcee Slowthai delivers his official debut Nothing Great About Britain, which sees
11 (as of the album’s official release, 17) new tracks and — in addition to the aforementioned — additional appearances from JayKae and Mura Masa. The album as a whole is definitely aimed as the racism and prejudice that currently exists in his hometown (and much of the western world).
Check it out in full below.
Megan Thee Stallion – Fever
The hottest female artist on the planet not named Cardi B delivers her major-label debut Fever, which sees 14 tracks and features from equally hot rapper Da Baby and veteran Juicy J. Needless to say, the Houston star continues to hold her own over hard-hitting, catchy production this side of “Big Ole Freak” (and you can expect more hits to spawn from this project during the Summer).
