15 New Hip-Hop & R&B Albums You Should Be Listening To (Week of December 3)

Tierra Whack, Khalid, LPB Poody, Ama Lou, EST Gee, and more make up this week’s best new albums.

Once again it’s New Music Friday, and that means we’ve returned to tally up the drops of the week that we’ve felt moved by. Hip-hop had a big week, so our selections reflect that. 

Leading the pack is Tierra Whack who shared Rap?; EST Gee has dropped Bigger Than Life Or Death Part 2; Polo G serves up Hall of Fame 2.0; Curren$y continues his steady release schedule with Land Air Sea, CRIMEAPPLE recently unveiled Sonchocho and Cozz’s Fortunate is another top pick. 

Cuffing season is in full swing. To assist with your playlisting give Ama Lou’s AT LEAST WE HAVE THIS. Khalid is officially back with Scenic Drive packed with features from Ari Lennox, Smino, 6LACK, JID, and more. 

If you’re itching to tap in with some Southern rappers look to Jacksonville rising star Nardo Wick’s Who Is Nardo Wick, Orlando-bred LPB Poody’s I’m The One, and 350HEEM of Lakeland released Major League today. Each of them represents different parts of Florida respectively.

More selects from Lil Peep x Harry Fraud, Toosii, Nick Grant, and Su’Lan round out this week’s picks.
