I am truly a fan of both so this battle should be very fun, and something for the history books too, for its a battle between a West coast artist and an East coast artist!!!

NEW MUSIC RELEASES!!!
PINK SWEAT$ – THE PRELUDE EP
We haven’t heard from this eclectic artist since 2018 so to see that he blessed his fans with a lil something special is super dope!! His music is such a cool ass vibe that you will have to only experience for yourself because just me telling you will not do anybody justice!
SHEFF G – JUST 4 YALL
The 5 tracks on this Ep just does not do us any justice!!! I felt like it was a tease LOL each track is hella lit and will keep your Friday on 10!!
KYLE – SEE YOU WHEN I AM FAMOUS
Kyle is extremely talented and Kyle’s album will make him famous! This album is super dope and has hot features like Rich The Kid and Trippie Redd! It’s totally a feel good album.
NOCAP – STEEL HUMAN
NoCap is a that type of artist who you will make you feel his music! This project does just that! I swear he reminds me of NBA Youngboy just a little, but Im saying this in a good way for he’s an artist whose music you can feel in your soul!
J.I. THE PRINCE OF NY – WELCOME TO G STARR VOL.1
I am really feeling this artist! I bet we will be hearing great things from this guy very soon! This Ep is super dope and definitely has you expecting more from him.
JOEY BADA$$ – THE LIGHT PACK
Track #3 got me fskw!!! And that’s all I am going to say!! Lmao
JHENE AIKO – CHILOMBO (DELUXE)
Jhene just had to bless us with 10 more additional tracks to this lovely album! The track that will be on replay is the track featuring her big sis Mila J!!! Overall Jhene can not do anything wrong in my eyes…just keep blessing us with this music honey!!
OBN JAY – NO COMMERCIAL BREAKS
This is a lil something that will bump ya truck!!
PHRESHER – BRICK BY BRICK
Its been a minute since we heard from Phresher, and this project is worth the wait!! Of course he comes thru with all the energy!! LOL
It’s Happy Juneteenth and here in Ohio it’s considered as a paid holiday, but I know all of us Black Americans will be in celebration all day! Why?? Juneteenth was the day Black Americans were declared totally free from slavery. To get more information in regards to this day of celebration click on the post that Barack Obama posted in regards to Juneteenth!
Also, in celebration of Juneteenth there will also be a special Verzuz battle between the talented Alicia Keys and the soulful, John Legend, who has a new project that I will be featuring today as well! I am too anxious to see this tonight! I am an Alicia Keys fan baby!!!!
Now let’s get started with NEW MUSIC FRIDAYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
BLACK EYED PEAS – TRANSLATION
This album will have you dancing thinking you are on an island with a cool refreshing drink in one hand the whole time!
JOHN LEGEND – BIGGER LOVE
Ohio native John Legend has finally dropped an album that isn’t a Christmas albums!!! I can guarantee that you guys will be overly satisfied with his results, especially with everything going on these days. It’s a blessing to be reminded of Black excellence! Don’t forget to check out John Legend tonight on Instagram LIVE doing a special Verzuz battle with Alicia Keys!!!
TEYANA TAYLOR – THE ALBUM
Teyana Taylor finally came thru with a well organized album with dope unexpected ass features with a beautiful voice as well!! I love how she keeps her music very transparent with her life, example, the intro is the original 911 recording of when she gave birth to her daughter at home. Only Teyana can provide that type of style with her music without giving out too much of her life. I enjoy artists who can turn their life stories into art, and create a vibe that no other artist is doing currently. I see why Charlamagne, from the Breakfast Club, says that she is an underrated artist, but I think after this…she might finally gets what she been deserved a few years ago. Congratulations Teyana!!!
SMOKEPURPP – FLORIDA JIT
Smokepurpp made sure that he was putting a lil bump in your ride with this album!! As I type this I haven’t stopped bobbing my head yet!
WALE – THE IMPERFECT STORM
If y’all didn’t know…I love me some Wale, I mean his music that is LOL It’s been 10 years and he’s in this game to stay while providing some of the best music that’s being played on radio stations every where. This project will leave you feening for more, but this will do for the moment.
TEE GRIZZLEY – THE SMARTEST
Ive been waiting for Detriot native, Tee Grizzley, to drop another project. It seems like it’s been forever since the last project, but if yo ear stays close to the streets, you will know that Tee Grizzley had quite a few misfortunes happen within the last couple of years! Now he’s pouring out his stress on this dope ass project. I think Tee Grizzley is underrated, but once he gets his mind right he’ll be back to making hits!!!
ERIC BELLINGER – HORS D’OEUVRES
What’s funny is that even if Eric Bellinger didnt drop a project today he still will recvieve credit for his work on Teyana Taylor album and on Wale’s new album. Eric comes ready to make those panty dropper songs as well as songs to keep you motivated such as “Mamba Mentality”.
CITY GIRLS – CITY ON LOCK
Sooooo…the word on the street is that someone leaked the City Girl’s singles from off there at the time forthcoming album. In response to the leaks the City Girls, chose to beat the haters and released the project last night. I’m actually glad they did because what is a summer without the City Girls?? I be needing to stay uplifted on my ratchedness, and they constantly fulfill that request for me LOL I swear I will bumping this album ALL weekend even tho it’s Father’s Day weekend, and of course I will be gifting my babydaddy a special gift. I’ll also be shaking dat ass while taking notes on how not to deal with these broke/cheap boys!!!
Welcome back to another T.G.I.F. I hope everyone’s week has been positive even during these crazy circumstances! I got some new music from a couple of heavy hitters and even from Cleveland as well. Please make sure to say a prayer for George Floyd and his family. I am getting tired of having to ask the question WHY US??
BARLOS MONTANA – KAPPIN 4 DUMMIES 3
Cleveland native Barlos Montana giving us another installment of Kappin 4 Dummies that sounds more litty than the last! Trust me when I say that after listening to just 2 songs you will be hooked. Some of my favorite tracks include: “Say Less”, “Blessed Dat Bitch”, and “On Go” will have you singing along to the words in no time! LOL I can admit that I was waiting patiently for this project, and he did not disappoint!!
LADY GAGA – CHROMATICA
Just like Lady GaGa said above…I found myself doing the exact same thing!! LOL GaGa scores again with this new Project Chromatica. This album is filled with heavy energy songs whose lyrics have meanings that can be felt, but then an interlude plays for 1 to 2 minutes then it’s party time!!! Her voice is truly a talent, and she is a performer who will be here well over 20 plus years! Im still at Club Quarantine at the house please believe that this album will be part of my playlist Honey!!! A few of the songs I love include: “Rain On Me”, “911”, and “Enigma”.
DIPLO – DIPLO PRESENTS THOMAS WESLEY CHAPTER 1: SNAKE OIL
Listening to Diplo‘s new project Diplo Presents Thomas Wesley Chapter 1: Snake Oil reminds me of a modern cowboy type of western movie and this is the soundtrack! Look! I have a weakness for albums that have themes! They literally give me a whole vibe. Some the tracks that I like the most include: “Heartless”, “Dance With Me” who features Young Thug, and “Real Life Stuff” featuring Julia Michaels & Clever.
LIL YACHTY – LIL BOAT 3
When I found out that Lil Yachty was coming out with another edition of the Lil Boat series I got too excited!! Yall can go back to New Music Friday posts from 2 years ago and I mentioned how everybody talking down on Yachty now, but in a few years they will be riding D!!! Guess what?? I think they need to grab a condom because the ride is about to be REAL!!! This 3rd installment has dope as features including: Future, Tyler The Creator, DaBaby, Drake and A$AP Rocky just to name a few! I can expect to hear some summer 2020 anthems from this project!! Tracks to check out: “T.D.”, “Pardon Me”, “Black Jesus”, “Can’t Go”, “Oprah’s Bank Account”.
FREDDIE GIBBS & ALCHEMIST – ALFREDO
Anything from Freddie Gibbs thats produced by Alchemist will have you on a whole damn vibe! This new project Alfredo sticks to the recipe, but is better than their previous collaboration, in my opinion. The track “Scottie Beam” just had me dying slowly until I heard Rick Ross voice, then I flat lined!!! Then the track that follows it, “Look At Me”, hits you with that Freddie Gibbs flow that makes his style so distinguishable and makes you want more! Even though it’s only 10 tracks, those tracks will satisfy a your earbuds very well!
ACE HOOD – MR. HOOD
I haven’t heard any new music from Ace Hood in a long time. Lately he’s been putting out fitness videos with his new wife, and they’re literally doing very well with that! Mr. Hood is an album that shows a level of maturity from the artist. Even though he’s been out for a little over ten years, he’s always made songs about the regular struggles of life but made it in a way that can motivate you to keep pushing. This new album doesn’t have those type of songs, but still carries itself with radio type of tracks. I personally like “12 O’Clock” that features singer Jacquees. This album gets an honorable mention for the week. Does this mean we will start to get new music from Ace Hood more often??? Hopefully, that is the case!
BIG K.R.I.T. – K.R.I.T. WUZ HERE
Things that I love about BIG K.R.I.T. is that he always stays true to himself, his lyrics stay consistent & on point, he also produces his own music, and represents Mississippi proudly! K.R.I.T. Wuz Here stays true to what I am accustomed to when it comes to K.R.I.T.’s music. Now that he’s been independent we been blessed to see him blossom into an artist to be respected.
Here are my honorable mentions for the week!! Make sure to check them out as well 🙂
What’s up my Goodies!!! Yesterday was my 28th birthday for the 2nd time, and ya girl kept it very simple which turned out to be a great birthday. It’s now officially Gemini season and this is the season when everything is LIT!! Thankfully I am off to enjoy this holiday weekend with my family and loved ones, and I hope the same goes for you guys as well!!!
Now let’s get into this new music!!!
Gunna finally drops his sophmore album, that according to him, is showing more of his “other” side, his alter ego….to explain this best…Gunna is a lovely Gemini, and Gemini is known for duality, the twins, two personas, the best sign ever etc LOL What’s funny is on a few songs I did see the difference like on “Dollaz on My Head” featuring Young Thug that felt like a totally different Gunna. Now do I believe that this album can take the #1 spot…umm..I dont know, but I do believe that he will come very close! While I only listened to the album once..maybe after I play it for a few times I will find myself having his album on repeat. LOL
Westcoast artist, Bino Rideaux, is out with a fresh project that I can guarantee will have you vibing to it all weekend. I enjoy how Bino rides the beat while telling a story that will keep you very attentive wanting to expect more from him especially during a time when the feeling of going outside sounds so tempting but risky all together. This dope project has features including: Mozzy and Fredo Bang.
Skooly is an artist whose music I will always anticipate! He always delivers regardless if he’s giving you a hard flow or preaching about some real shit. This new project not only has a dope ass cover giving us an Adams Family feel to it. What’s funny is, for Skooly to be an artist from Atlanta…he does not sound like the majority of artists who came from there. Tay Keith, Lil Baby, and 2 Chainz will have you bopping your head to this on repeat!!
There’s an artist that I totally feel like gets better and better every time I hear a new project from him, and that’s Key Glock! Not only does his music be bunkin but he has a flow that makes him stand out from any other Memphis artist. It’s cool that Young Dolph not only cosigns him they also did an album together too as well, but Key Glock can honestly hold his own. I bet that his name will still be ringing bells in the next couple of years!
This is my first time listening to artist Kota The Friend and I am pleasantly surprised!! He’s an artist who has a dope lyrical flow rhyming on top of dope beats as well!! I believe Kota is an artist who will be around for awhile especially if he stays this fly!
HONORABLE MENTION: STYLES P, TAY KEITH & FAST CASH BOYZ
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
What’s up my Goodies!!! How’s everyone’s week going?? My week has been very busy. One of my vehicles was involved in a hit n run, thankfully my insurance covered everything! My bae helped me get a newer and bigger vehicle that I am so happy to have. Mother’s Day is this Sunday so shout out to all the mommy’s out there!! Today is also my daughter in love’s 3rd birthday…..shout out to Nyleah for celebrating another year being on this crazy earth!!!! Lastly, tomorrow will be the Verzuz battle between my idols Jill Scott & Erykah Badu, OMG I soooo can not wait to see. Earlier this week I played both of there top hits just to get an idea as to who may win, but honestly they both are pretty much equal as for the hits. So make sure y’all are tuned in on Instagram at 9pm on either one of the ladies live. Chris Brown and Young Thug decided to make a collab project together. The thought of that project gave my mixed feelings. Mind you I am a stan for Chris Brown, and I love all of Young Thug’s music, but them two together I just didn’t know LOL The collab project has features with Gunna, Lil Durk, Too Short & E-40, but the album doesn’t get lit until the “Big Slimes” track then after that it’s a real vibe. Maybe this might open the door to more collaborations with the two. Overall it’s worth a listen and maybe a lil booty shake here n there LOL
The first time I really heard Kehlani was back in 2014. My older 2 daughters used to have one of her singles on repeat all the time, and I used to wonder who is this girl with such a soulful voice. Then her project SweetSexySavage that debuted back in 2017 was released and I found myself really enjoying the album. Kehlani makes music that all women can relate to, and she follows that same trend on this new project. This dope project has features with Tory Lanez(that track I have a feeling will be a radio favorite), Jhene Aiko, and even my boy Lucky Daye! Kehlani is moving on up, and this album I feel will put her in a class of her own that others will try to get into. Make sure to check out her first interview with the Breakfast Club today. She’s such a beautiful soul, and her music is always worth a listen.
Producer and artist, NAV, was supposed to had released this project sometime at the end of 2019, but for some reason or another it wasn’t released. The producer who is known as the first Brown boy in rap right now! In my opinion, NAV, is hard! But he does need to be a little more open so fans can get to know him better as an individual. This project is straight a litty situation. From the beginning to the end this album will have you bopping side to side, and with features including: Young Thug, Future, Travis Scott, Pop Smoke, and others you cant go wrong!!!
HONORABLE MENTION FOR THE WEEK: LITTLE SIMZ, LIL DURK, LIL TJAY
IT’S NEW MUSIC FRIDAYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What it do Goodies??!!! Singing…it’s the first of the month, cash yo checks and get up!!! I am feeling great today, and its the month of May!! For those who don’t know, this is my birthday month. My bornday is on the 21st, which is also the first day of the dual sign Gemini. Fun fact, I have the same birthday as the legend the Notorious B.I.G., singer Ronald Isley from the legendary group The Isley Brothers, and even famous wrestler & actor Mr. T!!!! #bossshit
Drake decided to bless us with some music while we wait on his project which is coming out sometime this summer. This project is litty! It has some old music as well as a couple of new joints. If you are still having Playboi Carti withdrawals…he is featured on one of the dopest tracks “Pain 1993” that I swear you will have on repeat like 5xs LOL Mozzy is one of the best artist from the west coast. His music not only gives me a front seat in the eyes of his life or what he has seen around him. This album is one to really vibe to. Once everyone is done with the Drake rush…Mozzy will be next to chat about. He deserves a conversation…don’t y’all think so? This project has features with G Herbo, King Von, and Eric Bellinger to list a couple. The track featuring both Chicago artists on “Body Count” is a banger. JoJo has one of those type of voices that makes me think she is something or someone else. Basically a small compliment saying that she can SANG!! LOL With a feature from Tory Lanez, this new project has a few female anthems to chant along, some club joints I can shake my ass too, as well as some tracks that makes me think of my bae. Overall, I feel like she has matured since her last project, and it shows. Terrace Martin new project is literally a vibe!!
Flint, Michigan needs to stand up!! Artist Jon Conner is a whole talent and vibe all wrapped up in one. His whole album is fire…every song doesn’t sound alike, and his flow is dope af, and has dope features like “Work of Art” with DJ Paul. This is definitely a must listen as well as a honorable mention.
Honorable mention for the week: LIL BABY, REESE LAFLARE, WAKA FLOCKA FLAME, SLIM 400, JON CONNER, HARDO, DO OR DIE, BROTHA LYNCH HUNG
IT’S NEW MUSIC FRIDAYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Whats up my goodies!? Hows everyone doing during this quarantine? So far, I am staying very grateful that I have my health and family by my side, and am able to work from home. Even if things aren’t going how you would wish things to go right now, just know I got all of y’all in my prayers, and please believe that hard times will not last always!!!
Now…let’s get into this week of nothing but dope as releases! OMG…I live for these days LOL Music is great for the soul. Speaking on how music is great for the soul…my fav…K Camp dropped today with an album that is definitely worth the listen. I’ve been rocking to K Camp since 2012…Im a mixtape girl, and it was a single that the Atlanta native was featured on and I used to play it out LOL then he dropped his project in 2013 that literally was getting played out at all the spots I used to hang at. Singing “It aint nuttin to cut a b***h off” was my normal thing to do around that time!! A true artist who gets better & better with each project he puts out, and Kiss 5 is a must listen in my opinion. Kali Uchis has me ready for a new project, and the cover to this ep has me feeling like I am alive just staring at it!! Please dont keep me waiting too long for your album beautiful!!
Now yall now on every 4/20, Wiz Khalifa always drops a weed smoking project, and he made sure to come thru with that pack for the holiday! Get Lifted!!! Fivio Foreign has a sound reminiscent of deceased rapper, Popsmoke. I see that drill sound is really taking over NY right now. Foreign’s project sounds like I took Popsmoke’s manuscript and added his voice to it LOL I do like his flow and that’s what will carry this artist until he develops his own drill style.
For Jackboy to be signed to Kodak Black’s label, for one, you can definitely hear the connection, but Jackboy has one hell of a flow that will grow on people plus be a reminder that Kodak Black will be home soon. I love the fact that his project his a self titled one…it gives the listeners a chance to judge his album with an unbiased thought. Asher Roth always comes with good music to listen and vibe to, and he made sure sure to stay consistent with his new project. One of my favorite singles on the project is the album titled track Flowers On The Weekend. The project also includes a dope ass feature with Lil Yachty that will have you looking at him different for he came with a delivery that we are not used to hearing.
HONORABLE MENTION FOR THE WEEK: Alina Baraz, Lil Gotit, NBA Youngboy, RJMrLA, and Derez Deshon
Hello my goodies!!! It’s another great week of new music releases that I have checked out and provided my thoughts of them so your listening experience can be LIT!!
DaBaby‘s new project is an example of a project thats not mediocre. His project is the biggest debut this week. The songs on this album are more organized and go together way better than the last album. He has features including Ashanti, Megan Thee Stallion, Roddy Ricch & etc. Overall DaBaby is putting on for his city of Charlotte, NC.
If you are in to that gritty hard lyrical New York flow type of music, Westside Gunn is your guy! I love his BOOM BOOM BOOM adlibs, it adds that extra flavor to his music that truly keeps my attention. With features from the likes of Tyler, The Creator and others will keep you vibing to this project all day.
This is my first ever listening to anything made by DVSN, and I have no complaints! Initially I assumed the artist was a female due to the title of they project, but actually its two guys with very calming voices singing about a female who is their muse, but is going through her own personal issues. As a woman, I can agree that yes, we do go through our emotional ups & downs. This dope album has features with PARTYNEXTDOOR, Jessie Reyez and even Buju Banton. I guarantee that this album is a must listen while chilling in the house during this quarantine time. Fredo Bang‘s new project is literally something that has some BOP in it. Executive produced by Moneybagg Yo and with features from Lil Baby, YNW Melly, Tee Grizzley, as well as Moneybagg Yo, you can’t go wrong for just taking one moment to check this project out. Fredo Bang can hang on his own though, like on the single “Yo Slime”.
HONORABLE MENTION FOR THE WEEK…The-Dream, Kenny Mason, Trev Rich, YFN Lucci
