This ep is definitely a great start to your Friday. Some of his features include Ari Lennox, Queen Naija, Mahalia, and more!!

PINK SWEAT$ – PINK PLANET

Such an eclectic fellow, and talented artist, Pink Sweat$ comes back out amazing his fans over and over again with his music. Each and every project comes with something different! Pink Planet gives me such a grown and sexy vibe and has only one feature with the lovely Kehlani. This project is a must listen especially during these Covid times.

ERIC BELLINGER & HITMAKA – 1-800-HIT-EAZY

Eric Bellinger is so underrated as a singer and a producer as well!! After listening to this collab project with Eric and Hitmaka AKA Yung Berg, I like them working together on projects and hope to hear more great music from them together! The production is dope, the lyrics are relatable, and the overall vibe is groovy!!!

JUDAS AND THE BLACK MESSIAH SOUNDTRACK – VARIOUS ARTISTS

I can not wait to sit my ass down to watch this movie I promoted a few months back on Tina With The Tea!! This soundtrack just gives me life, its filled with all your dope artists like Jay-Z, H.E.R, Nipsey Hussle, Lil Durk, G Herbo, and others!!! Just listening to the soundtrack will have you gassed up to see this dope movie!

ROBIN THICKE – ON EARTH, AND IN HEAVEN

Robin Thicke’s voice is such a treasure! While listening to this album, you will be vibing just thinking about all of the sweet and positive things in your life! This project from the beginning to the end is listen worthy. Robin is a singer that can last throughout time.

SLOWTHAI – TYRON

This is my first time listening to Slowthai, but I can say that I am very impressed and turnt all at the same time!! From the beats to the flow to the features from your favorites like Denzel Curry, A$AP Rocky, Skepta and others will have you putting this project on repeat!

SLIM400 – BOMPTTON

Slim400 is another artist whose music I love! Now he’s finally back in 2021 with some new heat that I know my West coast friends and fam will be bumping around the city! Of course he made sure to included features with my other fav RJmrLA as well!!!

VANJESS – HOMEGROWN

I meant to post about this project last week but I was overly consumed with my daughters 1st bornday, so I am making sure to post them today for this project is the shit!! In some ways these beautiful ladies remind me of Changing Faces. Lovely vocals and dope beats always gets me.

BLACK COFFEE – SUBCONSCIOUSLY

Overall, Black Coffee put his all in this great album! The feature with Cassie is definitely a must listen. Subconsciously is what I call a complete project. You can tell that Black Coffee took his time and planned everything out accordingly.

BABYFACE RAY – UNFUCKWITABLE

I like Babyface Ray! I can feel the waviness on every song! Dope features with Kash Doll, Moneybagg Yo and others!!

N E W M U S I C F R I D A Y S

POOH SHIESTY – SHIESTY SEASON

Pooh Shiesty got the radio blazing with his singles so of course I couldn’t wait to hear what a full length project will sound from him. Pooh comes with hard lyrics and surprising features, but my energy tends to move up and down like a rollercoaster while listening to it!!! Thankfully this is just a mixtape, and not his actual album!

EC MARV – BEAT DA ODDS

I have been hip to EC Marv for a couple years now. I have seen his clout chasing moments to him looking like the best boyfriend, babydaddy, father EVEERRRR! LOL I decided to check out his new project for by now I felt like he should be REALLY talking about something in his lyrics. Not saying that he didn’t do that before, but when you live “life” the raw emotions from it tend to provide great music , and EC Marv did that on this project! This is definitely a must listen.

THE WEEKND – THE HIGHLIGHTS

If you do not like The Weeknd then something is clearly wrong with you! Me, personally, I’ve been a fan since 2011, and even when I may fall off from listening to him, I can still check in and he’s still on fire! This project will definitely remind you of his greatest works, and don’t forget the work he’s done with Drake too!! Make sure to watch the 2021 Super Bowl this Sunday, the 7th to see The Weeknd shut this halftime special DOWN!!!

PROPAIN – IT AINT SAFE OUTSIDE

Propain made sure to give us what’s exactly has been not only on his mind the minds of people everywhere with a little Texas kick to it tho! Dope features from all of Houston’s greatest helps to convey Propain’s message on this overall dope project!

DEVIN THE DUDE – SOULFUL DISTANCE

To hear Devin The Dude on anything is a blessing! In 2021 he decides to bless us with a nice album to vibe to, smoke to, and just chill something that I think is needed during these times.

SY ARI DA KID – IT’S NOT YOU IT’S ME

Sy Ari Da Kid just knows how to make those songs you can relate to! He’s such an underrated artist. This project is definitely a must listen.

N E W M U S I C F R I D A Y S

FREDO – MONEY CAN’T BUY HAPPINESS

Fredo comes into 2021 with an album that can be played from the beginning to the end. This project is definitelt a must listen.

LIL DURK – THE VOICE DELUXE

I knew Lil Durk was going to speak his feelings on song in regards to King Von. May Von rest in peace!!! The project overall is a must listen, and with these added tracks makes the album even better.

LIL PEEP – CALIFORNIA GIRLS

I guess it’s cool to see new music from Lil Peep, even though he’s deceased, but it gives not only his fans memories of how talented this artist was. Just gone too soon! RIP Lil Peep.

PARTYNEXTDOOR – COLOURS

PartyNextDoor already released the project Colours a few years back, but it was not available to be streamed yet. So finally us fans can stream one of PartyNextDoors best pieces of work, in my opinion!

RICH THE KID – LUCKY 7 EP

This 7 track ep will have you mad by the time track 7 is finished for you will want to hear MORE!!!

ALYCIA BELLA – MUSE

This project by the beautiful Alycia is truly a vibe!

NECHIE – SHADY BABY

Not only will be hearing some dope slime shit, but we will also hear production by Gunna for the first time. In my opinion, he just might have a future with it. Shady Baby is definitely a must listen.

N E W M U S I C F R I D A Y S

DVSN – AMUSING HER FEELINGS EP

DVSN always present us with dope r&b vibes every year, and now they’re back with another project that will have you relating to it on a very personal level.

NYCK CAUTION – ANYWHERE BUT HERE

Not only is Nyck Caution presenting us with a dope voice to vibe to…He’s also dropping fire flows as well! This project gives you plenty of balance!

VYBEZ KARTEL – DANCEHALL ROYALTY

Are you ready to party?? This project is filled with nothing but dance riddems to truly have you ready to go clubbin!!

RIPP FLAMEZ – EVERYBODY HATES RIPP

Yall need to quit playing with Ripp Flamez!!! He literally has his own lane that nobody can touch and he does it well.

FREDO BANG – IN THE NAME OF GEE

Fredo is getting better and BETTER!!! Make sure to be looking out for him in the future!!!

UNOTHEACTIVIST – UNOVERSE

NEW MUSIC FRIDAYS

UNCLE MURDA – DONE COME OUTSIDE VOL. 3

Are ya’ll anxious to here Uncle Murda’s thoughts on the year 2020??

GUDDA GUDDA – 7 SLUGS

Gudda Gudda came hard on this project!

NEW MUSIC FRIDAYS

2 CHAINZ – SO HELP ME GOD

As usual 2Chainz presents to us another project that is complete FIRE! From the beginning to the end has been no song that I skipped past. His features like Mulatto, Kanye, NBA Youngboy, and others just adds to the dopeness of this album.

DANILIEIGH – MOVIE

It’s been 2 years since Danileigh has released a project, and for this 2nd time around she chose to go more personal and sensual….with a title named “Movie” I was wondering what type of movie is she referring to?? After listening to the first 2 tracks I think you will get the idea LOL Overall, it’s good to see the different layers of an artist as they evolve in their career.

PINK SIIFU X FLY ANAKIN – FLYSIIFU

If you are looking for dope beats with rhymes that make you not only vibe, but think a little as well….this is the project you have been looking for! I admit when the album first came on I was a little confused at first. Now 4 songs later…I am really vibing! There’s hardly any features, but these artists carried this project on there own anyways.

K-TRAP – STREET SIDE EFFECTS

This project is pretty forreal! What I really like is how K-Trap conveys his thoughts in his raps. Listening to him will have you thinking that you are literally there in his story line, and I think that’s super dope!

DAVIDO – A BETTER TIME

Davido presents to us a beautiful album that represents nothing but positivity and having a good time. Of course there’s dope features like Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown, Nas and many more to add to this dope project!

GOODIE MOB – SURVIVAL KIT

One of Atlanta’s legendary groups is blessing us with an album after a decade has passed and still can be put up against the best in the game now! What makes this album soooo classic already is the fact that Outkast makes a presence on this album as well! If that doesn’t get you excited to check this album out, I literally don’t know what else to tell ya.

FUTURE X LIL UZI VERT – PLUTO X BABY PLUTO

Now when you put Future and Lil Uzi Vert together what do you get?? Ummm…a lit ass album is what you will get and should’ve expected!

BIG MALI – GANGSTA TALK

Big Mali is literally bringing us some gangsta music!! This is my first time checking her out, and so far I am liking what she brings…dope flows with a distinctive style that is unlike others. Big Mali’s project is one that yall better check out! With features from Dababy, Asian Doll, and Rich The Kid guarantees certified bangers.

KODAK BLACK – BILL ISREAL

Kodak Black is finally back releasing music from the pen. It caused so much noise that he was trending on Twitter due to the fact that we still have yet to get a album from Playboi Carti!!! Kodak usually bless us with albums that has about 20 tracks, but due to his circumstance he only gives us 10 tracks. Either way I am too pumped, and he made sure to give his fans what we have been missing!

BLAC YOUNGSTA – FUCK EVERYBODY 3

I had a feeling that Blac Youngsta was going to release a solo project after his collaborative effort with Moneybagg Yo. the third installment to Blac Youngsta’s “Fuck Everybody” series has dope features from your favorite artists, but what I like about Blac Youngsta is that his lyrics really conveys a message that initially I think people did not catch on to. Now he is an artist that comes with good projects consistently and this installment is the same.

NEW MUSIC FRIDAYS

ARIANA GRANDE – POSITIONS

As Ariana is growing with her music, I can’t help but to love her more and more. Such a talent and stays with the dopest features and nice vibes throughout the whole album.

BUSTA RHYMES – EXTINCTION LEVEL EVENT 2: THE WRATH OF GOD

Not only am I super excited for Busta Rhymes to drop part 2 from 1998’s Extinction Level Event 1! Then listening to the album has me in total awe. First, shoutout to Busta Rhymes for copying 21 Savages style with including Chris Rock on his album. Wait, dope ass features with BBD, M.O.P., Rick Ross and even Minister Farrakhan speaks, and others. Overall this is a dope project. Yes it doesn’t compare to the first Extinction Level Event, but the 2nd half of the album does get LIT! Busta is an artist who is not going anywhere nor getting rid of his lyrical flows.

SAM SMITH – LOVE GOES

What I enjoy about Sam Smith’s music is that you can feel it in your soul, and is very relatable. This album feels like the soundtrack to just about everybody’s life and experiences in this crazy year of 2020. Of course Sam made sure to include some dance tracks while belting out heart felt lyrics provides the recipe to a great album.

WIZKID – MADE IN LAGOS

It’s been 3 years since WizKid has dropped his own album. Now we did get some great music from him a couple months ago when Beyonce re-released the Lion King soundtrack, but it just wasn’t all WizKid tho! Just like his last album be prepared to groove with the tight riddims on this project. Even the intro had me ready to slow wine imagining I am on an island somewhere! Great project overall…I always expect the best work from WizKid.

KING VON – WELCOME TO O’BLOCK

One thing I love about King Von is he is a story teller. He will have you thinking you are there in Chicago! On this project expect to hear from mainly Chicago artists which is very dope, always represent for your hometown especially when the love is being returned back! This project is definitely a step up from his previous work, and overall I like it.

TRIPPIE REDD – PEGASUS

I do not know what people was complaining about? I like this album. Trippie does come off with a more calmer and quieter sound than on his previous work, but the sound works for him. I think he has mastered his cadence in music for no matter how he changes it up, it still comes together and sounds great! Of course he has all the dope features including Cleveland’s own, Doe Boy, who has a project coming out November 6th. If you are a true fan of Trippie Redd you will definitely enjoy this album as well.

COMMON – A BEAUTIFUL REVOLUTION

Common always thinks outside of the box and stay dropping music that makes you think and vibe for the production is always dope! Honestly can’t find nothing negative about music that is supposed to uplift you especially during these crazy times.

MADEINTYO – NEVER FORGOTTEN

I look at MadeinTYO like a new version of TY Dolla $ign. They’re both dope with the productions and can make decent albums for themselves! Now I was shocked to see that the producer had came out with an album. Now I am so happy! LOL Forreal this album totally is a banger. Each track will have you boppin your head, plus with features from a mixture of people like J Balvin to Cam’ron to even Wiz Khalifa.

LIL KEED – TRAPPED ON CLEVELAND 3 DELUXE

I am not going to say too much about this deluxe version for I spoke highly on the regular album when it came out. Since 2020 is the year for all these deluxe albums Lil Keed said shit why not? LOL The new songs that he has added on the deluxe add to the already flavored album. Basically saying Lil Keed is LIT.

JIMMY VALENTIME & URBAN MIRACLE – DANGEROUS TO GO ALONE

You can tell that Jimmy is straight into old school hip hop which nothing is wrong with that for I do like how he blends it with the current style of hip hop now. The first 3 tracks had me wondering what was I getting into, but then the song “Porch Lights” comes on and I found myself vibing to it hard. Next thing I know the rest of the album was dope! This is one of the reasons why I love to listen to albums, for 1 single truly does not give an artist any justice.

JALEN FRAZIER – EXPRESSIONS OF THE NEGLECTED

The Midwest knows how to come thru with some good music and dope lyrics. That’s what Jalen did with this project. I feel like this is the best ending to a TGIF! I am glad this artist reached out to me, and that I actually took the time to check him out. After your first listen I bet that you will not be disappointed at all.
