“Keep In Touch” by Tory Lanez feat Bryson Tiller
New Bryson Tiller is always great news. This time it comes as a feature on Tory Lanez new single “Keep In Touch.” It’s one of the smoothest songs that Lanez has ever done; Tiller practically floats on this since it’s right in his comfort zone. s
“The Flute Song” by Russ
There’s going to be plenty of haters for Russ’ latest smash, “The Flute Song.” As much of an asshole as he can be, his new cut is a fucking banger, no matter which way you cut it. The flute in the background is so loud and shrill in the background that it is almost a secondary character in the song. And it works because of that, being one of his strongest songs to date.
“It’s A Slime” by Young Thug feat. Lil Uzi Vert
We knew that Young Thug was releasing Slime Language based on the snakes that he sent to various publications recently, but we still weren’t prepared for the genius that is “It’s A Slime.” With production that sounds like the ebb and flow of a mountain river, Thug practically skips like a rock on the top of the beat, Uzi following behind him emulating the same crisp delivery.
“BLACKJACK” by Amine
It feels damn good to get some new Amine after such a long wait. His trademark off-kilter style has long been one of rap’s most alluring aesthetics, now he’s back with a wild new project ONEPOINTFIVE, and, on it, is “BLACKJACK” that’s a barren, naked rap feast. Amine’s flow on this thing is ridiculous. A true gem.
“What’s The Hook” by Reeseynem feat. Chance The Rapper
Reeseynem’s latest features a bold horn and synth pattern that immediately grips the listener. His smooth, confident raps aren’t anything too boldly original, but they fit the brisk nature of the song. Chance The Rapper similarly brings in this enigmatic energy, showcasing the brilliant flows that make his rap heavy cuts like “I Might Need Security” so vivacious.
@Parkway703 gets darker than ever before in “I Can’t Feel My Face”
This is one of the darkest, most beautifully shot visuals that we’ve ever aired. Parkway, hailing from Virginia, is back with a cinematic feast of a video in “I Can’t Feel My Face.” Over some ominous production, Parkway raps with a mysterious kind of angst that’s both inviting and repulsive. He knows how to straddle this invisible line that makes “I Can’t Feel My Face” a worthy video to watch this Tuesday afternoon.
Watch the video below.
Music To Look Forward To Next Week
Thus far, there are only two huge releases to prep for this week. You never know in the age of the surprise album, but here’s what is on track to come out thus far.
Iridescence by Brockhampton – September 21
Brockhampton’s went through some shit lately because of Ameer Vann and the domestic abuse allegations placed against him. But besides the negative energy brought to them because of the debacle, the group’s been on the backburner for quite a while. Iridescence looks to change that, bringing the world something new since last year’s Saturation 3.
Tha Carter 5 by Lil Wayne – September 21
Yes, you read that headline right. Lil Wayne’s fifth installment of Tha Carter series finally comes out this Friday. The legal situation with Birdman has finally been wrapped up. Wayne can focus on the music that he’s been stowing away for years. If Swizz Beatz’s “P.O.M.S. (Pistol On My Side)” is any indicator, it looks like Wayne hasn’t missed a step either.
Music To Look Forward To This Week
This upcoming week for music looks to be pretty barren, save for any suprises. Remember how, in August, and, to some degree, June as well, it felt like everyone was releasing on top of each other? This made for exciting times, seeming as if the listener never knew what to expect. But now, the summer’s winded down. And, with it, the surplus of fresh tunes. Here’s what’s coming out this week, thus far.
East Atlanta Love Letter by 6lack – Sept 14
6lack just unveiled the second wave of promotion for his upcoming album via customized postcards; lucky fans will get them and will be asked to answer a simple question – “what is your definition of love?” This level of detail and creativity shows that East Atlanta Love Letter will be something legendary. 6lack’s been pretty quiet, now we’re going to see just what he’s been working on. The 25-year-old musician’s mesmerizing vocals are some of R & B’s best.
Harverd Dropout by Lil Pump – Sept 14
From bullshitting on SoundCloud, to being Kanye West’s creative anchor for his new single. Lil Pump has come such a long way in a short period of time. It looks like this week will finally yield Harverd Dropout, the highly anticipated follow-up to his self-titled debut. Lets hope that its more of what he gave Kanye and less of the earwormy rap boilerplate found in “Gucci Gang” and “Esketit.”
