In the same vein of one-producer albums, Benny the Butcher and 38 Spesh team up for Trust the Sopranos, Dave East and Millyz link for Pablo & Blanco, and Dark Lo recruits Harry Fraud for Borrowed Time. Rising Detroit stars Icewear Vezzo and 42 Dugg drop new tapes, Free Dem Boyz and Rich Off Pints. Young M.A.

Virtuosic Virginia native Masego finally returns with a new five-track EP titled Studying Abroad: Extended Stay.
