The duo consisting of singer Jillian Hervey and producer Lucas Goodman make up LION BABE — a New York City based music unit with a fervent sound dripping with ’70s Soul influences. They added a Childish Gambino feature and a Nina Simone sample to their latest creation, and the results are magnificent. Keep and eye on this group.

10 years ago, the only Chinese artist in the history of the Ruff Ryders camp released his debut album. A tested rap battle champ and international star, MC Jin, is back with a new English album to celebrate the project that changed his life forever. Though, it wasn’t critically acclaimed or a chart topper, The Rest Is History, marked a true milestone for Asian Americans in hip-hop. An inspiration for underdogs everywhere, actually.

Purchase Jin’s XIV:LIV on iTunes.

Try Me” may be the very reason you’ve even heard the name Dej Loaf, but best believe there’s more where that came from. Looking to capitalize on the success of her breakout hit, the budding Detroit starlet comes through with her new mixtape, Sell Sole. The 13-track freebie is highlighted by a Ty Dolla $ign and Remy Ma-assisted revamp of “Try Me,” as well as an appetizing collaboration with Birdman and Young Thug (who apparently wants to do an entire EP with young Dej).

Smoke DZA has had a busy year and his hustle isn’t slowing down just yet. He recently announced a new collabo album, The Outsiders, with fellow Harlemite Al Doe — under the moniker R.F.C. But not to leave fans yearning for more already, DZA flips some bars over Travis Scott’s “Backyard.”

It’s not quite the Kanye-versus-Cole-versus-Mac Miller mania of June 2013, but this month has been noticeably busy in an otherwise slow year for rap albums. Childish Gambino, The Game and Vince Staples have all put out projects in the first half of October, while T.I., Logic and Boaz (stream Intuition here) are bidding for your bucks today with brand new LPs. The trend will continue next week with Stalley, Black Milk and Lil Wayne, if his frustratingly quiet Carter V campaign is still on schedule, all hitting shelves.

Back to today, though: hit the jump to stream T.I.’s Paperwork: The Motion Picture and Logic’s Under Pressure, as well as advanced listens of Stalley’s Ohio and Black Milk’s If There’s a Hell Below (both dropping October 28).
