Future, Metro Boomin – WE DON’T TRUST YOU

Within hours of dropping, Future and Metro Boomin’s new album WE DON’T TRUST YOU has successfully taken over the timeline. Between talk about Kendrick Lamar’s verse that takes aim at Drake and J. Cole on ‘Like That’ and the other heavy hitters throughout the album, it’s one of the most talked about rap releases of the year so far.

Lucy McWilliams – Third Second Chance

London-based, Irish artist Lucy McWilliams shares her debut EP Third Second Chance. It comes after years of honing her craft and a flurry of singles. Tap in and cop tickets to her headline show on March 28 here.

Humble The Great – every night was the same

Landing via Neighbourhood Recordings (Dave, Kamal.), Humble The Great’s debut EP invites Joe Unknown, Amie Blu and Kamal. as guests across 12 tracks that span rock, electronic, indie, pop and rnb. The ambitious blend would be enough to muddy the vision of many artists, but Humble’s sound comes through clearer than ever on every night was the same.

Willhouse – The Vault: Volume Two

Irish hip hop mainstay Willhouse shares instrumentals and reworkings of classic rap cuts from the likes of Costello. It’s part of the renaissance being seen online where original beats are being swapped for jazzier counterparts, breathing new life into enduring songs.

GRAMMY-winning trailblazer Tyla’s self-titled debut album blends Pop, RnB and Amapiano in a coherent 14 track project that puts her flag in the sand as the next global superstar.

Rome Fortune, Kaytranada – Banned By Kaytranada

In what appears to be Rome Fortune rapping over unreleased Kaytranada beats, Rome Fortune has shared 11 tracks as part of a project called Banned By Kaytranada. There’s very little information about the project online and neither act has acknowledged the project at the time of writing. Either way, we’re here for it.


TDE’s SiR comes through with 16 tracks on his new album featuring the likes of Isaiah Rashad, Scribz Riley and more.
