This week’s crop of new albums features a movie soundtrack and new releases from veteran MCs.
Keeping up with new albums in the modern age of streaming can be a tough task for the average listener. With every week, dozens of new artists appear, older albums are added to streaming, and artists tack on bonus tracks to their albums via deluxe editions. It can be a lot to process.
That’s why every week here at Okayplayer, we round up the most notable projects from artists new and old, in hip-hop, R&B, and more. This time around, we have a joint album from Lil Baby and Lil Durk, the Gully movie soundtrack featuring 21 Savage and Schoolboy Q, and a bevy of releases from all over the globe.
Lloyd Banks returns to the rap game after five years away with The Course of the Inevitable. Smoke DZA and Sleepy Hallow also dropped new projects, making it a multigenerational New York affair. Stream and download your favorites below.
