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.
.@YAKTOWNBOYZ248 gets some things off of his chest with “Vent”
YTB Kaine has a new song on his hands that acts as therapy. It’s “Vent” a smooth, somewhat somber record, that explores the come-up and what happens after that – the celebration. But instead of reveling in his newfound successes and those on the way, he thinks about the circumstances that got him where he’s at today.
Listen to “Vent” up above.
.@tonyxsantana releases a creative visual for “Paper Trail”
California rapper Tony $antana is all about the money in “Paper Trail.” He spits about the importance of money and what to do to get it while rapping in a literal pool of money. It doesn’t get much more badass than this.
Watch “Paper Trail” down below.
.@RealRobotJones runs this town in ‘Big Dog’ video
Robot stomps around town in the creative “Big Dog” video. The eclectic visual features some genius editing that showcases the rapper’s city in the nighttime as he moves around it, but it also shows how splashes of color can takeover a scene like slowly pouring lava. Through it all, Robot’s dominating rap is filled with molten swagger that never lets up.
