July has been a busy month for Hip Hop and it’s not slowing down for the latest New Music Friday. This week’s lineup is highlighted by Logic’s retirement album and the return of Lupe Fiasco.
Australia is represented with The Kid LAROI delivering his major label debut following an appearance on Juice Wrld’s Legends Never Die LP. Also, Curren$y has teamed up with Harry Fraud once again for a new collaborative project. And to top it off, Gunna fans get a bonus via a deluxe edition of his Wunna project.
Check out all of this week’s notable Hip Hop streams below.
Logic – No Pressure
Logic is saying goodbye to the rap game with the release of his sixth studio album No Pressure. Although Hip Hop retirements rarely stick, the Def Jam MC claims he’s leaving to focus on being a dad while earning money via Twitch.
Lupe Fiasco & Kaelin Ellis – HOUSE
Lupe Fiasco discovered producer Kaelin Ellis’ beats on Twitter and ended up making an entire EP with him. “He’s like, ‘I got this idea, trust me,'” Ellis told HipHopDX. “That eventually turns into HOUSE with all my beats fully arranged into songs. I was floored!”
Gunna – Wunna (Deluxe)
Two months after releasing the Wunna LP, Gunna revisits the album for a deluxe edition. The expanded version of the project adds eight new songs, including collaborations with Future and Lil Uzi Vert.
Curren$y & Harry Fraud – The OutRunners
Curren$y has reconnected with producer Harry Fraud for a new project titled The OutRunners. The duo’s latest collaboration features contributions from Conway The Machine, Rick Ross, Wiz Khalifa and Jim Jones.
The Kid LAROI – Fuck Love
Following a guest appearance on Juice Wrld’s posthumous album Legends Never Die, teen rapper The Kid LAROI drops his Fuck Love project on Columbia Records. The 15-track release contains guest appearances by Lil Mosey, Corbin (formerly known as Spooky Black) and the aforementioned Juice Wrld.
Flo Milli — Ho, Why Is You Here?
Alabama hot girl Flo Milli is wasting no time letting her direct competition her stance with song titles like “Like That Bitch” and “Eat It Up.” The more defiantly titled Ho, Why Is You Here? serves as her debut major-label project and could be the origins of a global superstar.
“This project is introducing a revamped newer me,” the 20-year-old says of the project. “A newer version of myself that I’m still discovering. This phase of me comes with an ego and an attitude. This is setting the tone for what I have to come in the future, I want everyone to feel the energy I’m coming with.”
