These Were The Best Projects From August

Published

on

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.

ONEPOINTFIVE by Amine

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.

Set to kick off November 5th in Toronto, Motown recording artist Elhae (@ELHAE) continues his ‘Aura III‘ campaign by revealing the ‘Aura‘ Tour. In addition to the tour announcement, the Peach State vocalist is the latest guest to appear on REVOLT TV‘s new live series Soundcheck

The intimate session finds the Kehlani-collaborator highlighting his pristine pipes and undeniable ability to capture the attention of any room. Executing a medley of songs off his critically acclaimed ‘Aura III‘ project, the soulful performance with bandmates Matt DunlapGourty MaxxJasmine CarsonMarcaelis Sanders, and Busco gives fans a glimpse at what they can expect as he gears up to hit the road. 

Aura III‘ is a sleekly cinematic, unfailingly earnest project filled with mesmerizing vocals, hypnotic production, and guest appearances from Rick Ross and Masego. Showcasing his delicately powerful voice and ability to oscillate between island-inflected bops and jazz-tinged romantic overtures, the project only reaffirms his status as an artist to watch. That designation was hard-earned through years of memorable collaborations, steady releases, and meaningful fan engagement. The songs have resonated, too—the Masego-featuring “My City” has over 8M streams globally, and the project as a whole nearly 20M.

O Racks, Rhoco Benjie & Zeeko Release “Im The Type”

Published

on

By

Following his collaboration with Pop Smoke affiliate Sosa Geek, O Racks (@TreeGang_racks) connects with Drake-producer Yozora for “I’m The Type.” Accompanied by Rhoco Benjie and Zeeko, the follow up to “We Made It” finds the New York native adopting a Detroit / LA influenced flow while boasting about his lavish lifestyle. The trio effortlessly trade bars over the bouncy beat setting the stage for the Tree Gang Entertainment CEO’s next release.

“In Hollywood everyone parties together. When you’re not an LA native you notice the locals taste in music. From what I witnessed, most people gravitate towards Cali and Detroit type beats because the energy makes it easy to dance to. So I told the producer to send me something in that lane. Soon as I heard it, the first verse just flew out – I’m the type of nigga start it up and air it out. The rest was history,” says O Racks when describing the song’s origins.

Born and raised in Hempstead, O Racks decided early in life he would pursue music professionally. Dedicated to the craft, O Racks began rapping and creating songs, even traveling outside of the tri-city area expanding his reach to Rhode Island, California, Atlanta, and Miami. With each release he acquired more fans and sharpened his skills, eventually catching the ear of Rich The Kid. The relationship spawned two records, “Prices” and “Look At Me, ” which received radio airplay soon after being released. Fast forward, he incorporated his independent music label Tree Gang Entertainment and took it to Hollywood.
