A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie broke out in 2016 with the platinum-selling single “My Shit.” After following that with two certified gold records (“Jungle” and “Timeless”) and a second platinum plaque for “Drowning,” the Bronx native is ready to his debut album The Bigger Artist. Lead by the Kodak Black-featured “Drowning,” A Boogie’s full-length studio LP will hit stores on September 29 via Atlantic Records.

Chris Brown (“F*ckig & Kissing”), Trey Songz (“Bad Girl”), and Don Q (“Money Sprung”) all make guest appearances on the 14-track LP. Fans who pre-order The Bigger Artist on iTunes can instantly download “Beast Mode” featuring PnB Rock and NBA YoungBoy, which serves as the album closer.

westside gunn mf doom

If you thought being signed by Eminem was a huge co-sign for Westside Gunn, just wait for what he has in store for us. Announced on Instagram moments ago, the Buffalo, NY rapper is teaming up with the legendary MF DOOM for a new project called WESTSIDE DOOM. Better yet, the collaboration is being helmed by The Alchemist and Daringer, whose gritty production both appeared on Westside Gunn’s critically acclaimed FLYGOD album. According to Gunn, WESTSIDE DOOM is “the RAWEST, FLYEST, GRIMIEST shit you’ve ever heard IN YA LIFE” — and judging by the snippet below, the hyperbole might just be warranted.

Rapsody has announced she’s releasing a new album called Laila’s Wisdom on September 22 via Roc Nation, who she signed to last summer. That doesn’t mean her long-time label Jamla is out the picture, though, as 9th Wonder provides the Goodie Mob-sampling production on the album’s first single, “You Should Know,” which features another hip-hop legend by the name of Busta Rhymes. It’s a face-scrunching combination that should get you even more excited for a new Rapsody album later this month.

Laila’s Wisdom — the follow-up to last year’s Crown EP — is available to pre-order on iTunes.
