Words: Dylan Murphy

With the endless onslaught of new music every Friday it’s hard to keep up with all the new releases. We’ve curated the essential new albums and projects out today for you to check out.

Brent Faiyaz – Wasteland

Maryland singer Brent Faiyaz has been making waves for a minute with his glamorous and often toxic brand of heart-wrenching RnB. His endlessly teased album Wasteland, however, promises to be his full crossover moment that propels him beyond his cult status to a household name. With features from Drake, Tyler, The Creator and production from The Neptunes and more, it’s the must-listen album this weekend.

Westside Gunn – Peace “Fly” God

Westside Gunn didn’t want to waste any time in getting a new project out in the world. In his own words: “Idgaf about the mix or the master I wanna keep that shit grimey af, so I’m dropping this Fri fuck it”. Tap in.
