Chicago heavyweight Mick Jenkins is back, in a major way. He’s been letting off some videos over the last few months, but the complete album is finally here, and it’s fire. With only a few carefully chosen features, Mick does the heavy lifting himself bringing densely packed lyrics throughout the project. Tee-WaTT and Renzel handle the bulk of the production with a few others in the mix, and the result is a hard hitting front to back album thats among the best 2021 rap releases.
Childish Gambino (aka Donald Glover) is proving to be one of the most prolific entertainers of his generation, balancing a successful music career along with equally successful endeavors in acting, screenwriting, and stand up comedy. On the heels of his massive hit “Redbone,” from of his rebirth album Awaken My Love, Gambino has been on a roll. He just announced a US tour with support from rapper Vince Staples, and now he’s released a poignant song and video titled “This Is America.” Donald displays yet another talent with some solid dancing skills and many other surprises in this powerful video.
A$AP Rocky has been relatively quiet for a while now, it’s been 3 years since he dropped his last full length project, and he’s really only popped up on few random features here and there in the mean time. He just introduced two new songs during his Jimmy Fallon performance recently, and now he’s back with the video for “A$AP Forever,” a dope flip of Moby’s classic “Porcelain.” As always when it comes to Rocky, this video is nice and trippy, and super clean.
