This week was full of surprises from side eye worthy beefs to new releases. Check out a brief recap below:
January was pretty light as far as musical releases, aside from Boosie‘s album and Future‘s Purple Reign. But, there are a few projects dropping in February that I’m looking forward to:
Kanye West – WAVES
- Ye’s beef with Wiz got a lot of people pretty riled up and I’m anxious to see how “wavy” this project will be. “No Parties in L.A.” reminded me of Yeezy on “New God Flow” so I’m hoping for some classic Kanye vibes. Also, he’s got some monster contributions. How dope was that handwritten notepad tracklist?
- WAVES drops Feb. 11
Young Thug – Slime Season 3
- I just love Thugger’s flow. His voice sounds perfect and his beat selection is always on point (even if I can’t always understand what he’s saying).
- SS3 is slated for a Feb. 5 release
Boosie Badazz – Out My Feelings (In My Past)
- This guy is on a roll and I’m not complaining. At the beginning of the month, he dropped a heartfelt project called In My Feelings (Goin’ Thru It) and I swear I felt all of his pain. Boosie is a great storyteller and conveys emotion very well.
- Things will be on the upswing on this new project and I love Boosie’s ratchet songs just as much as the others. Out My Feelings (In My Past) will be available tomorrow (Feb. 1).
Still waiting for Mr. West to drop his remix #YeezyforPresident
Sent to me via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) from Lower East Side rapper Ron Oneal. He’s apparently been cosigned by Rick Ross and his latest project was hosted by DJ Self.
Check it out for yourself below.
This is kinda wavy. Production by FKI’s 1st.
No such thing as a life that’s better than yourz. This is probably my favorite song from Forest Hills Drive.
