#NewMusicFriday: What You Need To Hear


The ending of summer is getting closer and we may some potential AOTY contenders dropping right before we move into the fall vibes. Let’s get into it.

ICONOLOGY – Missy Elliott

We found out about this only yesterday. But it’s here now. Just press play.


BROCKHAMPTON’s music has always been in its own lane. With multiple members in the group and layered production complete with switch ups and vocal pitching their song structure is pretty much unpredictable. After dropping four singles along with videos for each one over a 4 week period the full project has arrived. As I said if you’re looking for something different from what you’re used to this is the album you want.

Eve – Rapsody

Rapsody is continuing the domination of black female rappers this year and doing it in her very own way. She has said this project is a dedication to black women and based on the track titles she hit the nail on the head. With features from D’Angelo, JID, J. Cole, Elle Varner and even Queen Latifah this is sure to be a special project for multiple reasons.

85 To Africa – Jidenna

With one of the most authentic and creative promo runs in recent memory Jidenna has returned with his first project since 2017. This one looks to blend as many genres as his previous ones and this is always commendable.

Other Drops

Playing Games – Summer Walker

Back and Forth – Joy Postell

Ghetto Lenny’s Love Songs – SAINt JHN

Life is Beautiful – Powers Pleasant

TM104: The Legend of the Snowman – Jeezy

Writing has always been Paul’s passion. His ultimate dream is to become a best selling author but, that journey begins here! He also loves movies, music, and food (eating it more than cooking it!). He says he tends to gravitate towards action and some dramas but, can also really get into a psychological thriller. Being an open minded individual, he literally listens to ALL kinds of music, so he has favorite artists across multiple genres.
