I truly love Ms. Toni Braxton’s voice!!! This album is like a breath of fresh air to my speakers! This project will be on repeat!!
ALUNA – RENAISSANCE
Nothing compares to the feeling of sharing a body of work that has so many little pieces of yourself woven into it, pieces that you didn’t even know were there. It’s strange to let it be someone else’s, RENAISSANCE IS NOW YOURS!https://t.co/3Z2J2EIHQspic.twitter.com/4in7Mwtj3M
Hey Goodies!!! I hope everyone’s week was great or if not….be blessed you have made it through it!!! This week of new releases are LIT!!! We got a new release from Paid In Full rapper Rakim. We also havePaid In Fullrapper Rakim’s son who released a new project. Lil Keed and NLE Choppa have also step to plate with some fire music. Lil Baby and Rod Wave are following in the steps of other well known artist by re-releasing their most recent albums with added music then repackaging them as deluxe albums. Popcaan coming through with riddems, while Tobe Nwigwe making sure he keeps are heads spinning with not only dope lyricism, but hitting topics that should be on the forefront of the news!
I feel that these are all the ingredients to add for a fine dinner of fresh music!!! Oh and do not forget to check your girl out! I have fresh and new content up on 216 The Beat radio channel on Youtube called Tina with the Tea!!!!!
AMINE – LIMBO
It’s knew it was about time for Amine to drop another album!! I think it’s been since 2017!!!! Please believe that not only is the wait over, but it was well worth the wait. This sophomore album sounds like he really took his time and even made a very good dedication to the recently deceased ex NBA player, Kobe Bryant. Overall, this is a great album with a lot of feel good tracks with dope lyricism to top it off!
DABABY – BLAME IT ON BABY (DELUXE)
So DaBaby decided to follow the theme of 2020 which is re-release your album , but make it a deluxe album! Honestly…I’m liking a lot of the new songs added to the deluxe album vs the original! I swear DaBaby is not going anywhere no time soon!
LIL KEED – TRAPPED ON CLEVELAND 3
I swear Lil Keed is my favorite out of Young Thugs crew of slimes. The project Keed dropped last year was super dope even though I had to get used to his voice…you can tell he was speaking on some ish! Trust and believe that this project will provide extra bump in ya ride!!!
NLE CHOPPA – TOP SHOTTA
NLE Choppa came thru on this project! I can say that literally every song will have you bobbin your head continuously! If he stays clear from trouble I believe that he will have a successful career.
POPCAAN – FIXTAPE
If you are looking for some feel good music with some reggae feel…this album will give you that fix! Popcaan goes in on this album, even Drake is featured on this blazing album.
ROD WAVE – PRAY 4 LOVE (DELUXE)
I see the formula for re-releasing albums with additional songs by which makes the project a deluxe version. Like Dababy, I like the songs a little more that was added onto the original album. I personally enjoy Rod Wave’s music for he makes music that you can feel, and this project is something his fans will definitely enjoy.
TOBE NWIGWE – THE PANDEMIC PROJECT
This right here!!!!!!!! OMFG THIS RIGHT HERE!!!!! This is a project that we been needed and I suggest for all to listen to. This project represents everything we people of color are feeling especially during this year of 2020. Great work Tobe!!
TAHMELL – HOME
I swear to be the son of rapper, Rakim, I feel like that instantly puts expectations of greatness on you, but I can say that Tahmell seems to have found his own lane that fits him. This project has a nice vibe to it, and dope flows. This project is definitely worth a listen or maybe 2!!
JACOB LATIMORE – LEO SEASON
Soooo…I am guessing that Jacob must be a lovely Leo LOL There’s nothing like putting music out around the time of your birthday…I guess it gets you ready to celebrate! Jacob who has a nice voice that does well on any beat. Short project with great song selections to get you in the mood plus features that include: Trevor Jackson, Rotimi, Eric Bellinger and others!

You will not believe that singer Brandy has finally released a new album in 8 years, and so many other dope releases came out today too! Check them out below:
BARLOS MONTANA – PHASE 3
I am truly excited on how Barlos Montana is staying consistent with releasing out material. His style is something different than any other artist coming out of Cleveland for being different can always set him apart from the others. While this Ep only contained 3 tracks….I can say it has me anticipating for more!
BRANDY – B7
To see that one of my favorite singers/actresses finally released some new music I was totally ecstatic!!! It literally been 8 years since she has released anything new! This new album starts off a little slow, but once you get to song 6 the album starts to come live LOL overall I am elated to hear her voice again and I hope she continues to bless us with her music.

NYCK CAUTION – OPEN FLAME
I am salty this is only an Ep!!!!! I am truly feeling the track that has Flipp Dinero featured on it, but overall this guy right here is someone to be looking out for in the future.
BEYONCE – THE LION KING: THE GIFT(DELUXE)
Beyonce would prolly kill me for I have yet to watch “Black Is King” on my Disney Plus app! I will definitely watch it once I get settled. She is one of the greatest performers in my lifetime and generation. Now with this deluxe of the Lion King I get to hear the songs I grew to love yet over again and again LOL

TEEJAY3K – INTROVERT: SIDE B
RJMRLA – LET ME TALK MY SHIT
He’s one of the dopest rappers to come out of LA but not too many people are familiar with him as of yet! He stays very consistent and at times will include unexpected features from artist that you never thought knew of him, and thats exactly how I got to know of his music. This project is nothing new…just like his other work this right here will be on repeat!!
Hey my Goodies!!! I hope everyones Holiday weekend was great and that yall stayed covid safe as well! #wearyourmasks I was sooooo busy!!! On the 3rd my oldest turned 15 years old, and now tomorrow my son will be turning 5 years old. Due to me being so busy I didnt get a chance to post any new music, and with all this craziness going on we need something to help lift our spirits even its just a lil bit.
Hit Or Miss Sundays is finally back in the studio, this past Sunday was our first time back together since March. Of course we kept our masks on, and and the amount of people around us was at a minimum. Overall, It made me realize how much I missed being there around the crew! I will also be starting a new segment on Cream’s show called “Tina With The Tea” check me out on Saturdays between the hours of 2 to 4pm.
216 The Beat radio is back to doing our segment “Spotlight On Black Owned Brands” if yall know of any brands you think is worthy for a shout out please email me or the station.
Now I got some of my announcements out the way LOL it’s time for NEW MUSIC FRIDAYS!
SUMMER WALKER – LIFE ON EARTH EP
In my mind Summer Walker can not do any wrong even though I think she’s a special in a good way, she always comes out with music that you find yourself playing on repeat. These 5 tracks is like a teaser to my soul! Once the ep ended…I wanted more! Thank to Summer I am anxious for what is to come next.
JUICEWRLD – LEGENDS NEVER DIE
Even though JuiceWRLD is deceased this posthamus album gives you this feeling like he’s still here! I truly love how this album was composed & arranged. Hopefully he’s above smiling down on the world for I think he would be greatly pleased with this album. It’s a definite must listen.
TORY LANEZ – VVS CAPSULE
Tory made sure to bless us with only 2 tracks to keep us waiting for more! According to Tory he will be dropping new music in capsules so stay tuned for more!!
SAHBABII – BARNACLES
I totally love this artist! SahBabbii’s lyrical flow is something else different to the game! He made his own lane in this music game that nobody can duplicate. If your not familiar with SahBabii, I guarantee this album will make him your new favorite artist.
TOBI LOU – LINGO STARR EP
I can not lie….this ep contains 3 of the best songs I ever heard, and how Tobi has the songs arranged is too freaking dope. Like right now I am sitting here thinking to myself like Damn…thats it?? LOL
PHILTHY RICH – REAL HATE
Being that I am from the Midwest, we do not hear too much of what’s hot over on the West coast, but I can say that after hearing Philthy Rich the first time, I had to make sure that I checked his music out every time something new was released. This new project will do just that.
K CAMP – RARE FAMILY
If you are a K Camp fan you know that his music always comes with a lil bump to it. I believe this is album does just that! This is the 2nd compilation that I have heard from K Camp and RARE Sounds and in my opinion….I totally enjoyed this album.
