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.
.@uknowflyboi hits the forest in “Lowkey”
Flyboi Rich is back with a hard-hitting new banger, “Lowkey.” If you’re familiar with Rich’s trademark brand of punching raps, you’ll love this one. It’s an endearing look at how punchline rap continues to evolve.
In the video for the visual, Flyboi hits the forest and raps to nature. If he raps too hard, he’ll start a brush fire.
Check out “Lowkey” below.
.@uknowflyboi tries on a funkier sound with “I Neva”
Fly Boi Rich’s “I Neva” is a little zestier and more argumentative than his previous works. The track brings some of the Bay Area’s bounce into Detroit’s atmosphere, creating a tenacious track that begs to be danced to. You’ll be enamored with its simplicity and the rapper’s commitment to powerful verbiage.
Listen to “I Neva” below.
@uknowflyboi raps on a dark instrumental on “Adidas”
Fly Boi Rich’s latest is “Adidas,” a darker than usual tune with an elegant backdrop. The beat is simple and clean, with Rich’s powerful vocals setting the scene for a lyrical masterclass. On the track, he raps about women, power, and money; rap’s holy trinity. But the way that he does it creates an astonishing new element of pizazz that lets the world know that he’s truly up next.
