This week’s haul is brimming with big-league rap team-ups.
Happy Friday, good people. And a righteous Release Day unto you. The pre-Turkey Day blitz is officially underway. And while this week’s drops were lean on the nostalgia, there’s a grip of new heat to get acquainted with. So let’s get to it.
Action Bronson and The Alchemist rekindle their Rare Chandeliers energy on the new collaborative project Lamb Over Rice. DJ Muggs and Tha God Fahim extend their respective and joined catalogs on the ghoulishly gritty Dump Assasins. Kenny Beats and 03 Greedo’s Netflix & Deal rallies Freddie Gibbs, Maxo Kream, Vince Staples, Buddy, and more, for a star-studded salute to the incarcerated LA rapper. Shay Lia tacks on a handful of new cuts to a deluxe edition of her debut album, Dangerous. And Deaton Chris Anthony’s BO Y is a quirky batch of club-and-trap-laced pop experiments.
The singles selection is slim but potent. Braxton Cook chimes in with a lush, mid-tempo two-stepper, while Terrace Martin, Rapsody, and Lalah Hathaway, pick up the pace with a warbled dance floor dagger. And Hanni El Khatib’s “Crown” is a fuzz-and-funk-fortified transmission.
