These Were The Best Projects From August



There were a whopping seventeen rap projects to come out in August of this year. That’s a lot of bangers. So many of them were good too – from the batshit craziness of Travis Scott’s Astroworld to the gangbanging heaviness of Stay Dangerous. Whittling down our favorite picks – not the obvious ones too – was hard, but we came together and did it. Here’s what we got.


Amine proves he’s more than “Caroline” with the release of his follow up project ONEPOINTFIVE. Instead of being nothing but teenage angst trapped in a mid-20s body, Amine repurposed this aesthetic into something new and exciting. And by that, I mean it to be exciting by being the opposite of what he’s typically known for – which is being exciting in the first place. ONEPOINTFIVE is dark and gloomy with bombastic beats,. Large, sexy beats too, with lush scenery built into their backbones. From front to back, the album is a masterpiece.

Life’s A Trip by Trippie Redd


Trippie Redd is far from a one-trick pony. Life’s A Trip, his debut studio album, chronicles his experiments across different subgenres of rap. He’s a mad scientist, tinkering with his formula in the lab. He delivers his crooning that has gotten him to where he is today, but he also spits with commanding force – chiefly on “Missing My Idols,” one of the album’s highlights. The world’s in for much more Trippie very soon.

Everything Must Go Vol. 1

T-Pain’s new project is full of his attempts to recreate his Golden sound. 9 times out of 10, he succeeds. There’s enough baby-making music here to play a commercial for condom use in between every four songs. The missteps come when Pain tries to rap. It just flat out doesn’t work. When he sticks to the voice runs, that’s when he has his best success.
