Ty Bri been popping out in Cleveland since late 2018, and after going thru changes with management she is now able to showcase her talent! I had the pleasure of meeting Ty Bri back in November at her coming out party. Now she has finally dropped her mixtape! Expect this project to be filled with dope upbeat songs, features from Mulatto, YFL Pooh, and LvfromCLE, and ladies anthems to sing along with.
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
What I truly love about this project is that Nas not only came with his dope ass flows, but he brought such a upbeat vibe special thanks to the producer, Hit-Boy!! This Black powered filled album includes dope features with Big Sean, Charlie Wilson, Don Toliver, Lil Durk, and even The Firm. For those youngins who may not know who The Firm is….it’s includes Foxy Brown, AZ, and Cormega!!!
I am sooo geeked!!! I have been waiting see Mulatto come with a album for over a year now! After winning Jermaine Dupri’s rapper contest, it seemed as if Mulatto wasn’t going to blow up, but she proved us wrong! This project is very lit, and is very entertain-able!
I love how Lyrica poured her pain out in her music which is a great way to vent as well as create a bomb ass album! Mind you she is a great writer, and I truly love how she put this project together, make sure to keep this on repeat!
M24 – DRIP N DRILL
Drip N Drill Out This Friday !! 21/08/2020 Pre-order Link in my bio Everyone go pre order.!! Tell a friend To tell A friend 💥🎉🎉👀 pic.twitter.com/G13iCfPi8O
Vic Mensa seems to always present himself in a different way every time he drops a new project, and he stuck to the same code on this project as well! I swear I felt some Jay-Z vibe on this project. Overall the project is dope, and his lyrical flow is impeccable.
Derez Deshon never fails to drop some music that you will literally feel in your soul for he speaks about real life pain, struggle, and love. I admit that I have been waiting for this project to drop for quite some time, and I am so happy that it finally did!!
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!
DC THE DON – COME AS YOU ARE
This artist from Milwaukee is lit!!!!! Even though this is my first time checking his music out…he has gained a fan in me!!!
YE ALI – YE ALI X CHILL 2
Great producer and songwriter and this project is definitely a mood!!!
Hey Goodies!!! Make sure to check out “Tina with the Tea” after getting updated on all the new music releases for the week!!!
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.
SHORELINE MAFIA – MAFIA BIDNESS
I was turnt listening to this project! LOL
BENNY THE BUTCHER & DJ DRAMA – GANGSTA GRILLZ: RESPECTED SOPRANOS
This project right here….is literally dope af!!! Every track on this project is lit.
DOM KENNEDY & HIT BOY – ALSO KNOWN AS
Mannnn….I love Dom Kennedy’s music! Especially that mixtape he came out with back in 2012/2013 was kept on repeat and now he’s back like he’s never left with some more feel good tracks that come with dope rhymes to give you a little something to bump to on a nice sunny day!
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
SOULJA BOY – KING SOULJA 9
Happy belated Birthday to Soulja Boy who is now 30 years old! I bet he cranked it LOL
LORD FINESSE – MOTOWN STATE OF MIND

E-40 – THE CURB COMMENTATOR
E-40 always staying with some heat in trunk!
JUSTIN RARRI – YOUNGEST IN KHARGE
This project is super dope!! I love the production and his flows!
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!!
What’s up Goodies!!! I am back with another week filled of New Music Releases to check out! I am so excited this week for there are some major artist releases today PLUS a last album for one of our greatest lyricists as well as a newbie whose project already has Twitter going dumb crazy over her lyrics!
Also make sure to tune in to my new segment on Cream’s World podcast titled “Tina with the Tea”!! Yes, Goodies…I usually go by Mz Slimgoody, buuuutttt that’s like my alter ego while “Tina with the Tea” is more of my transparant self! I always knew the tea rather if I spoke on it or not, and now I am actually telling it. Please check it out on 216 The Beat’s Youtube channel, make sure to subscribe and comment!!!! Someone told me before to start putting out new content, and I did!
Sooooooo….are you guys ready to get your TGIF on?? LET’S GO!!!!!!!!!!
MICHAEL AND THE INFLUENCE – DRUG DEALERS DREAM FOR THE UNITITATED
Who does 10 years in jail to come back out with a podcast, dope ass project, and repping from the south east side of Cleveland, OH??? This guy right here named Michael! I particularly enjoyed all of the tracks on his project, but only 5 are my favorites. With only 12 tracks on this project…that is not bad at all! This is a must listen project…I don’t know what he has planned but i think that if he decides to stay in this music game, I think he will last for a long time. Congratulations Mike!!
LOGIC – NO PRESSURE
So Logic decided that this will be his last album. He says that now it’s time to be a father, and I not only understand that but I commend him for making that sacrifice! Will he stay retired from the game? Ummmm…per past references like, Jay-Z and Master P, who have a made so called last albums to turn right around and make another album. This album by Logic is so strategically done. You will hear some samples that will make you bob your head and just vibe to his music. Overall, I wish Logic and his family the best!
TAYLOR SWIFT – FOLK LORE
At times you have credit where credit is due, and Taylor Swift is that woman. She returns with an album telling more stories of love, heartbreak, and motivational thoughts that everyone will relate to. We must always give flowers to those are still living.
LUPE FIASCO & KAELIN ELLIS – HOUSE EP
GUNNA – WUNNA (DELUXE)
CURREN$Y & HARRY FRAUD – THE OUTRUNNERS
J. COLE – LEWIS STREET
He finally gave us some sneak peeks to his upcoming album!!!!
ICEWEAR VEZZO – ROBBIN SEASON 2
Vezzo is one of my favorite rappers from Detroit…please expect nothing but some REAL bump in ya trunk anytime his music is on!
FLO MILLI – HO, WHY IS YOU HERE?
Mannnn…..SHOUT OUT TO MY LADIES!!!!! 2020 may not be the best year but it sure is breeding some of the baddest chicks coming into this rap game! They making sure to shut mouths up while still looking like the sweetest snacks EVER!!!! I bet Flo Milli will be here for a while!!
Guess what??? It’s 6 days until my birthday Goodies!!!! My birthday is also the start of the Gemini season, which is also known as the best sign ever!! I can admit that due to this Coronavirus outbreak the thought of celebrating my birthday is like a love/hate thing right now. Yes, they do plan on opening restaurants for dining in, but I decided that I will have a small get together at my home, and fix a crab boil while I sip on some tequilas!!!! Usually I don’t even be home on my birthday, but I’m happy to still be alive celebrating a new year of life so think of me next Thursday. My cash app is $tinanita if y’all feel like showing ya girl some love for her birthday.
Future dropped a new project that I think is another meaning to him not drinking Lean anymore. Dope features that include: Drake, Travis Scott, NBA Youngboy and Young Thug gives this album something to anticipate, but still has a feeling as if something is missing. I realized what was missing….Future’s original style, music to turn up to. I know people will hate me for saying this, but I miss the music he made that I can see myself at someones after hours vibing off to. This album didn’t have me ready to shake my ass to…just none of that. All I did was listen to the lyrics and bobbed my head. Maybe a 2nd listen may help with my perception of the album. Just not now. IJS bring back my original Future Astronaut LOL
At first I thought that Polo G album was going to be as depressing as this rainy weather I am feeling, but I am proven wrong!! The Chicago native made sure to shout out deceased artist, Juice WRLD, who is also featured on the album as well as King Von, Lil Baby, and BJ The Chicago Kid. You will start to see the album turn up once you get to track 5 then it’s smooth sailing after that. I do appreciate Polo G and his stories that sound very relatable to the normal man. Deante Hitchcock first album has me smiling. He really put his all into this project, and it delivers that same energy back to it’s listeners. I can guarantee that this album will stay on repeat especially with dope features from JID, Young Nudy, 6lack and Miguel will have you thinking to yourself that this guy must be dope as well, and to be honest…he is.
Honorable Mentions for the week: ZAIA, SHEFF G, ROY WOODS, and CHIEF KEEF
