Young Thug started the year off by earning his first No. 1 record on Billboard’s Hot 100, his “Havana” collaboration with pop star Camila Cabello. Aside from leaked records, not much was heard from Thugger after that, until the Atlanta rapper announced he isn’t dropping any new records in 2018. “I got a deaf brother. So, I want to act deaf for a year, I ain’t going to put out no music this year. 2019, I’mma probably drop Hi-Tunes,” said Young Thug in an interview with Hypebeast.

A surprising move, Young Thug now releases a three-track EP titled Hear No Evil. Out now on iTunes, the project features guest appearances by Nicki Minaj, Lil’ Uzi Vert and 21 Savage. Southside, DJ Spinz, Rex Kudo and Charlie Handsome contribute on the production side.

The heir to the Bad Boy throne, King Combs, releases his official debut project. Titled 90’s Baby, the 12-track mixtape is influenced by hip-hop and R&B from the ’90s, the music that molded him as an artist today. King Combs’ father Puff Daddy, along with the CYN collective all make guest appearances on the project.

I have been greatly influenced by Bad Boy artists, but driven and inspired by my generation to be authentic,” Combs tells Hypebeast, who premieres the project. “I am forever inspired by the smooth vibes of the late ’90s music. The mixtape is a soundtrack of my childhood and journey to this release. I observed and absorbed all of the energy musically that surrounded me as I was present while many classic records were being made.”
