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.
Yenkee – Yen

The Alchemist & Curren$y – Continuance
The Alchemist maintains his ridiculous run of collaborative hip hop projects with a new release with New Orleans rapper Curren$y.
Yeat – 2 Alivë
Noah Oliver Smith, aka Yeat is in the midst of a moment.

It’s been two years since Big K.R.I.T’s 4eva Is A Mighty Long Time, but the Mississippi rapper is back with a new 22 track offering.
