It looks like we’re gearing up for the next few weeks to be pretty huge in hip-hop. People within the TDE and Dreamville camps are teasing new music, with possible new music coming from Isaish Rashad this week, as well as J. Cole’s The Off-Season next week. Both of these have yet to be confirmed but it’s looking like we’re going to have an exciting couple of weeks.

As we wait, our staff checked out the latest hip-hop and R&B releases, which were definitely nothing to scoff at. Last week, we got the latest studio album from DJ Khaled, which featured guest verses from JAY-Z, NasLil WayneLil BabyDaBaby, and so many more. We also received the debut project from Morray, a new album from Yelawolf, a project from The Alchemist, and much more. Some of our favorite drops have been included in the latest update of the Staff Picks playlist on TIDAL and SoundCloud.

If you’re curious about what we’ve been listening to get us through the day, check out our individual picks below. Subscribe to our page on SoundCloud here for more playlists, as well as TIDAL here. Most importantly, enjoy the new music!
