As usual, we’ve kept our ears and eyes open for you, our readers as we prepare to head into the weekend for New Music Friday. Hip-hop reigns supreme this week.
Big Sean and Hit Boy have surprise-dropped a new EP titled What You Expect; A$AP Rocky’s cult classic Long.Live.A$AP finally hits streamers; Curren$y and Harry Fraud present Regatta; and Peter $un releases Scumbaby (Deluxe).
If you’re looking for something more experimental, we recommend rising indie artist Hush Forte’s album Look Closely and ROMderful’s PLEASE RECONNECT CONTROLLER. Also, in a similar vein, Amaal has unleashed her latest project Milly and cktrl’s zero is a release that sticks out this week.
Notably, Reason shared a reflective project No More, No Less: Demo 1; Buju’s Sorry I’m Late is here and you should take Jay Worthy’s Two4Two for a spin.
Elsewhere there are other releases by Felly, B.O.B and Ahmad Anonomis.
