We're getting a full plate of hip-hop albums to cap off Thanksgiving. Meek Mill returns to the mixtape circuit with new project Flamerz 5. Harkening back to Meek's underground beginnings, the mixtape sees the Philadelphia-bred rapper spitting over cuts including GloRilla's "Tomorrow" and Kodak Black's "Super Gremlin."

British rap veteran Stormzy releases his long-awaited third album This Is What I Mean which follows his 2019 effort Heavy Is the Head. YoungBoy Never Broke Again and Quando Rondo jump back into the booth for 3860.  Sadat X links up with Dough Networks for Science of Life. Detroit-born producer Waajeed surprises with new enigmatic production tape Memoirs of Hi-Tech Jazz. MIKE, Wiki and The Alchemist are a dream trio on 3-track EP One More.
