Today’s another busy one for new music with Gucci’s Drop Top Wop, Lil Yachty’s Teenage Dream and Bryson Tiller’s True to Self (released a month early by surprise) all hitting shelves streaming sites, but don’t sleep on ItsTheReal’s Teddy Bear Fresh. On their debut album, the comedy duo serve up 11 hilarious song concepts (like the munchies-ready “Sugar High”) but also prove they’re more than just hip-hop sketch comedians; the Rosenthals can actually rap. Plus, there’s no disputing the claims that they “live everything they say in their rhymes.”

Featuring appearances from Bun B, Curren$y, Smoke DZA and more, Teddy Bear Fresh is out now on iTunes.

Bryson Tiller is a man of surprises. Earlier this month, the R&B signer announced his True to Self sophomore LP would drop on June 23 via RCA Records, and dropped three new songs including “Somethin’ Tells Me” and “Get Mine” with Young Thug. The 24-year-old followed that up last week by unveiling the 19-song track list. Now four weeks ahead of its set release date, Tiller gives fans the full album in its entirety.

The follow-up to his platinum-selling T R A P S O U L debut, True to Self features productiion by Boi-1da, T-Minus, Allen Ritter, WondaGurl, !LLMIND, and NES. Described as a “more upbeat” project in a recent interview with Rolling Stone, the Louisville-native spoke on how doing live shows played a part in changing the tempo of his new studio album. “I don’t want it to be a long slow concert, dull and boring, so I’ve got a lot of upbeat production on this one,” says Bryson.

Out now on all streaming platforms and iTunes, stream True to Self below.

After emerging as one of New York’s ones-to-watch on 2015’s 5 O’Clock Shadow LP, Jimi Tents returns with his new album, I Can’t Go Home. Inspired by seeing his childhood home foreclosed, the project highlights the harsh realities of gentrification in his backyard of East New York. “I really wanted to touch on where I’m from, and highlight the fact that gentrification is fucking up a lot of peoples’ lives,” Jimi tells The FADER. “I guess there’s some good coming from it, like safer neighborhoods and better quality of life for some, but for the people who are from there, born and raised there, it’s really an uncomfortable space to be in.”

I Can’t Go Home includes the previously released “Rick Rubin,” plus new collaborations with Saba, Ro James and saidbysed. Stream the album in full below and grab your copy on iTunes.

Faith Evans keeps the memory of The Notorious B.I.G. alive and stronger than ever with the collaborative LP, The King & I. The duets album, pairs the R&B songstress with her late husband and rap icon, repurposing verses and lost reference tracks from the King of NY. Lead by the song “NYC” featuring Jadakiss, the 25-song LP features guest appearances by Biggie’s mother (Voletta Wallace), The LOX, Lil’ Kim, Lil’ Cease, Busta Rhymes, 112 and Kevin McCall. DJ Premier, Just Blaze, Salaam Remi, Stevie J and Chucky Thompson also lead an all-star cast of producers.

I remember telling Ms. Wallace [Biggie’s mother] that one day it would be really dope if I could do something similar to Natalie and Nat King Cole’s ‘Unforgettable’,” said Faith to Billboard earlier this year. “Knowing the love that B.I.G. had for [daughter Tyanna] and Ceejay [his son with Evans, Christopher Wallace Jr.], I feel it’s my duty to uphold and extend his legacy, especially his musical contributions. This project is my creative reflection of the love we had and the bond we will always have.”

Out now on iTunes, stream The King & I below.

david-banner-the-god-box-cover

David Banner’s last full-length studio LP, Death Of A Pop Star, released seven years ago. The Mississippi activist/artist/producer ends that long drought, returning with his new album The God Box.

Big K.R.I.T, Black Thought, Trinidad James, Kap G, Big Rube and more appear on the project, available for purchase on iTunes at midnight.

It’s more than an album, it’s an art exhibit,” says Banner, speaking about the LP. “It’s sort of like a secret. It’s something that people are going to have to come to their own conclusions on. Everyone will get something different out of the album; and I’ll let the listener decide what that is.”
