The follow up to his 2010 mixtape has arrived.

Just in time for his “From the South With Love Tour,” Big K.R.I.T. has gifted fans with his latest project, K.R.I.T. IZ HERE. The blazing hot record is full of rap tracks that are delightfully southern without sounding kitschy. As the 10-year anniversary of K.R.I.T WUZ HERE approaches, the rapper told Zane Lowe on Beats 1 that it was important for him to follow up his critically-acclaimed, 2010 mixtape to let people know that he’s matured. He also mentioned that he’s addressing some often uncomfortable topics that are prevalent in the culture.

“For me, it was about also showcasing that I can go different places,” he said of being multi-faceted. “It either be singing, live instrumentation, and how I sometimes want to use my vocals as more of an instrument, than just being on the record. Also, tackling certain issues, or how I feel about certain social topics and things like that in my music, but knowing the K.R.I.T WUZ HERE‘s ten year anniversary is gonna be next year, and it was important that I let people know that K.R.I.T. is here now. It was always me kinda feeling like I wasn’t being noticed or kinda being bitter, I guess, in a certain kinda way. And all of that kinda went away when I did 4eva Is a Mighty Long Time and just finding my space and what I want to do creatively.”

You’ll also find a handful of features on K.R.I.T. IZ HERE including sounds by Lil WayneJ. Cole, Yella Beezy, Saweetie, Rico Love, Baby Rose, Camper, and WOLFE de MÇHLS. Let us know what you think.

Yuna is back with her first project in three years.

It’s been roughly three years since the release of Yuna’s last album but that doesn’t mean she hasn’t been active. She’s continued to release loose singles in the time in-between. The Malaysian singer has continued to drop new music since including her collab with Tokimonst. Now, she returns with her latest project, Rouge after building anticipation over the last few months.

With eleven tracks in total, Yuna’s back with her seventh album, Rouge. Her latest album follows the release of her critically acclaimed, Chapters which arrived in 2016. Rouge includes features from Tyler, The Creator, who appears on “Castaway,” G-Eazy, MIYAVI, Little Simz, KYLE, Jay Park, and Masego. “Blank Marquee” with G-Eazy serves as their second collaboration together. The project also features the previously released singles “Forevermore” and “Pink Youth” with Little Simz.

Peep her new project below.

Bodega & Salaam hit the studio.

A few weeks ago, Salaam Remi and Bodega BAMZ debuted the first deliverable of their collaborative efforts, dropping off the fiery “That Guy” single.
