11 New Albums You Should Listen To Right Now (Week Of Nov. 6)

New albums released this week include projects from Giggs, Chris Crack, Sosamann, Soul Glo, and more.

Not sure if you noticed, but there’s a pretty big election that has been happening all week. So people have been pretty preoccupied. That is definitely reflected in this week’s New Music Friday. Quite frankly, not a lot of new albums dropped this week. So it wasn’t too difficult to wade through the new releases.

In fact, even during a down week, there were still quite a few number of quality drops. The new albums released this week include projects from Giggs, Chris Crack, Sosamann, Soul Glo, and more.

Nav gets a lot of grief on the Internet. But he has regularly put out new music over the last couple of years. He tends to have a good ear for production. So this new project with Wheezy shouldn’t be that surprising.

There’s really not much more you can say about Goodie Mob’s Soul Food; it’s one of the greatest pieces of recorded music ever. The Expanded Edition of Soul Food, released to celebrate 25 years of the album, features a new version of “Free” that is out of the world.


NLE Choppa — From Dark to Light

NLE Choppa is going through quite the rebrand. The rapper, who hit the scene in 2019 with the intense “Shotta Flow,” is now a more spiritual, grounded person, who is promoting veganism and mediation. This is reflected in his new mixtape From Dark to Light.

In an interview with GQ, he spoke about his journey, saying:

“It started out with meditation for me. There were certain questions I asked the universe while I was in my meditation. I read books, like The Autobiography of a Yogi, sacral healing books, law of attraction books. There was a lot of information that I’d just let soak in then apply it.”
