6 Hip-Hop & R&B Albums You Should Be Listening To (Week of February 4)

Saba returns with Few Good Things and Ivy Sole shares Candid, both releases are introspective and essential listens.

A few indie rappers and artists are leveling up this week and have shared new albums. Saba for example has presented Few Good Things, an expansive LP featuring sticky production and compelling storytelling. But, mainly his distinct voice is refreshing. He enlists Krayzie Bone, Black Thought, Smino, Mereba, G Herbo, and others for the LP.

2 Chainz returns with Dope Don’t Sell Itself. If you’re privy to his drops, you won’t want to miss this album. Yo Gotti also shares 22 tracks on his newest album CM10: Free Game

Next up is Ivy Sole who unveiled her album Candid earlier this week. It’s a vulnerable release featuring Topaz Jones, Bathe, and more. Eli Sostre never disappoints, his latest 566 is fulfilling and appeared to come out of nowhere but we won’t complain. This week BEAM also shares his debut album (Alien) with Jorja Smith, Justin Bieber, and a few acts.

Keep scrolling to check out all the releases we’re into this week.
