Little Dragon - New Me, Same Us
Get ready to daydream with Little Dragon's latest album "New Me, Same Us." It's been three years since the Swedish electro-pop group released new music. Little Dragon’s lead singer Yukimi Nagamo is as enchanting as ever, as she generously lends her delicate voice for out-of-this-world harmonies and even rapping on the new project. Music is a great way to escape and Little Dragon's sixth studio album "New Me, Same Us" is a great excuse to be transported to a dreamy state, even if it's only for 45 minutes.
Conway The Machine & The Alchemist - LULU
The Alchemist has been on roll this year. He's dropped a flurry of music, including singles from Jay Worthy, a collaborative EP with Boldy James and even releasing 47 new tracks with "The Good Book Pt. 1" and "The Good Book Pt. 2." The Alchemist and Griselda member Conway The Machine linked up for "LULU." "LULU" is a happy marriage of The Alchemist's texture-filled production and in-your-face brick rap from Conway. The project is so NY, it even features a couple of Paid In Full snippets and a Cormega feature. Real rap with Conway ad-libs, does it get any better than this?
Giveon - Take Time
Giveon’s debut EP has been in the making for the better part of two years now. The Long Beach native dropped his first song, “Garden Kisses” roughly two years ago and has since toured with Snoh Aalegra, and appeared on Drake’s first release of the year “Chicago Freestyle.” Giveon’s voice haunts you in the best way possible, the baritone singer laces each track with stories about the different stages of love. Get ready for Giveon’s emotional roller coaster with "Take Time."
JAHMED - THEBOOFMOBILE
JAHMED loves his car so much, he decided to immortalize it by giving his debut project the same name. The rapper spent his life savings on that car, driving to sessions in LA trying to wrap up his debut effort. With "THEBOOFMOBILE," JAHMED displays astute lyrical ability with relentless energy. An impressive debut to say the least.
Skepta, Chip & Young Adz - Insomnia
Skepta, Young Adz, and Chip step up for their collaborative project "Insomnia." Although the project features grime heavyweights Skepta and Chip, Young Adz is a budding rapper, born out of the growing UK drill movement. "Insomnia" is filled to the brim with boorish raps from Chip and Skepta, and Adz's slick auto-tuned raps.
