The cover art is wild, the rollout of the album was confusing, the name change is still over the top and confusing, but this might be the best piece of work that Young Thug has put out to date. Jeffery, aka Young Thug releases his mixtape (album??) No, My Name Is Jeffery today on most major streaming services. He calls on the services of Travis Scott, Quavo, Gunna, Duke, Gucci Mane, Offset, Young Scooter & Wyclef Jean. It seriously sonically sounds amazing and you can tell Thugga sat down and actually wrote these songs rather than just free styling. Do not skip over this project. Stream on Spotify below and also check it out on Apple Music or Tidal.

After the release of his killer 2-part album Summertime ’06 in 2015, the hype around the name Vince Staples has grown exponentially. With an increased fan-base and higher expectations, the stakes for his newest EP Prima Donna were much higher. The anticipation ended today when Staples released the album to Apple Music and Spotify. Prima Donna has the same driving, up-beat, but dark production that we got from Summertime ’06. Staples proves his consistency while offering new quality music. Stream Prima Donna below.

BBNG demonstrate a new dynamic sound, but don’t abandon raw instrumental talent that got them this far. Check out IV below.
