Black Friday starts now, and while the annual bum-rush at Walmart and Best Buy may be off the table this year, some of Hip Hop’s biggest names have done their part to ensure fans won’t go without a soundtrack to their online overindulgence.
For those hitting the harbor, Lil Yachty looks to make it a happy Boatsgiving, and for anyone that can’t say no to ratchet turkey, Juicy J is sprinkling his gentlemen’s club magic on your weekend with his latest album, The Hustle Continues. Jim Jones fans are in for a treat as Harlem’s elder statesmen gives 2019’s El Capo the deluxe treatment and Statik Selektah is all about the center with his new LP The Balancing Act.
On the up-and-coming side, “LOWKEY” rapper Seddy Hendrix is ready to show and prove with his full-length drop Say Less and Lil Baby affiliate Rylo Rodriguez sets the bar high with his ambitiously titled Goat In Human Form.
Peep and stream all of today’s noteworthy releases below.
Lil Yachty – Boatsgiving 3.5
Like he always does at this time, Lil Yachty keeps his Thanksgiving tradition alive with the updated version of Lil Boat 3. A new feature from Future and a Playboi Carti appearance highlight Lil Boat’s slightly upgraded release.
Juicy J – The Hustle Continues
Almost 30 years in the game and Juicy J is still on his new artist grind as evidenced by the title of his new album. The Three 6 Mafia spitter recently dropped a taste of the project via the NLE-assisted single “Load It Up” featuring. Lil Baby, Megan Thee Stallion, Young Dolph, Key Glock, Logic, A$AP Rocky, 2 Chainz, Conway The Machine, Ty Dolla $ign, Rico Nasty, Jay Rock, Lord Infamous and Project Pat also appear on the original trippy one’s latest offering.
Foogiano – Gutta Baby
Gucci Mane’s energetic new artist has already proven to have hitmaker talent, thanks to his pairing with DaBaby on his red-hot remix of “MOLLY.” On Gutta Baby, his studio debut album, the Atlanta trapper links with Lil Baby, Taykeith, Jacquees and 1017 sidekicks Pooh Shiesty and Gucci himself for a “solcy” release.
Rylo Rodriguez – Goat In Human Form
A Lil Baby cosign comes with great expectations. As evidenced by the confident album title, Rylo is undaunted and ready for the Hip Hop world’s judgment. Lil Baby, Moneybagg Yo, Yo Gotti, Jackboy and more make appearances on the Alabama-based rapper’s new LP.
Jim Jones – El Capo (Deluxe)
Plenty of artists have followed up the release of an album with the deluxe edition in 2020. Jim Jones, however, nearly doubles the track load of 2019’s El Capo with his 31-track update, which includes two additional posthumous verses from the late Fred The Godson, as well as features from Conway The Machine, Dave East, Juelz Santana and once again, Rsonist on the tracks.
Seddy Hendrix – Say Less
Generation Now’s latest artist Seddy Hendrix lets his music do the talking with his new release Say Less. The Jacksonville, Florida-based rapper garnered some notable features from Jack Harlow, G Herbo, Gunna and more.
Statik Selektah – The Balancing Act
As a stout figure for Boston Hip Hop, Statik Selektah, the veteran producer adds to his bottomless list of collaborations by recruiting the likes of Nas, Benny The Butcher, Jadakiss, Bun B, Joey Bada$$, Jack Harlow and many more for his latest release, The Balancing Act.
Shoreline Mafia – Mafia Bidness (Deluxe)
Shoreline Mafia touches up their July release Mafia Bidness. The deluxe version features eight new tracks and of course, production from RonRon and Ace The Face.
