The “H” is capitalized on purpose. (If you know you know) I know it’s been a MINUTE but I’m back to give y’all what y’all need to hear today. We got multiple releases across a variety of styles this time around so there has to be something in this list you like. If not…
Too Many Gods – A$AP Rocky X Joey Bada$$
I’m aware there are multiple artists on this album. But that Weeknd, SZA and Travis was meh to me. This right here tho? Definitely fire. Ominous production with just enough bounce that you can still nod your head to it. Joey and Rocky both get a verse with Joey on hook duty. The “gods” theme runs throughout the brief track as they both discuss the trials that come with such a status and all the facets that come with it. And for the longtime Rocky listeners, there’s even a pitched down “Uh” tucked in at the very end of the track.
P.S. The Chloe X Halle track “Wolf at Your Door” is also worth peeping as their vocals glide all over the production effortlessly. And it just sounds BEAUTIFUL.
The Last Party – Matt Martians
If you know The Internet you know Matt Martians. If you know The Jet Age of Tomorrow you really know Matt Martians. Matt’s music is a salad bowl of soul, funk, hip hop with a drizzle of raspberry vinaigrette of space. As in the galaxy. This is his sophomore solo album after saying he would never make another one on his debut. This one is special as production comes from a variety of people including Matt himself, his fellow band mates and others yet they all captured his signature sound. If you like The Internet and are ready to get a similar vibe but one from another planet this is the one for you.
CrasH Talk – ScHoolboy Q
This is why I capitalized the “H” in the title today. ScHoolboy Q is back after taking a hiatus to deal with personal issues. “Numb Numb Juice” let us all know he was back with the rawness we love while CHopstix…was CHopstix. This album finds him in usual bag of eerie bangers with a sprinkle of slower paced tracks in the mix as well. Out of all the releases today this one has the most energy and if that’s what you want you’ll find it here.
All of these are available on streaming platforms now!
