7 New Hip-Hop & R&B Albums You Be Listening To (Week of February 18)

Big K.R.I.T. unleashes Digital Roses Don’t Die this week, and Deante’ Hitchcock has shared Everyday The 14TH. Both releases are splendid listens.

This week’s best album roundup is led by southern rapper Big K.R.I.T. who has dropped off his newest release: Digital Roses Don’t Die. The entire project feels good, and it’s a refreshing option to carry with you through the long weekend. 

Next Vic Mensa has released a surprise EP, Vino Valentino featuring four tracks. Deante’ Hitchcock serves up the punchy love-themed Everyday The 14TH, our favorite track on it so far is “Neck Up.” Hitchcock’s EP features Bairi, Dende, Chris Patrick, ELHAE, and more. 

Also, Curren$y and The Alchemist link up for the joint album Continuance. The project is sprinkled with appearances by Wiz Khalifa, Styles P, Larry June, Babyface Ray, and others. Sada Baby returns and shares Bartier Bounty 3. And, Peewee Longway drops Longway Recipe

Raveena emerges to present Asha’s Awakening, a kaleidoscopic concept album that pulls from Alice Coltrane, the ‘60s, and also the early ‘00s. 

Keep scrolling to see all of our top picks of the week.
