Snoh Aalegra Blesses Us With "Ugh, Those Feels Again" Album

Years removed from her FEELS debut album, songstress Snoh Aalegra has at long last touched down with its follow up, delivering on Ugh, Those Feels Again. 

Picking up where FEELS left off, the new effort finds Snoh baring it all in a well-crafted exploration of heartbreak, romance, and bouncing back.

 “Well, it’s like a continuation of Feels, the previous album,” she tells Billboard. “I’m still that emotional, passionate, sad girl — but a hopeful sad girl. The A-side is more positive and you can feel that spirit in those songs more than on Feels. Because I’m in a different place in my life compared to how I felt two years ago. So I put that on this new album.”

Get into Ugh, Those Feels Again below.

Reese LAFLARE & Pi'erre Bourne Pop Bandz On "Cash Talk"

Reese LAFLARE has been putting in work. Although it’s been a few months since the release of his last track, he’s back in action with his two-piece Lil Skate For President EP. The rapper’s project includes the single, “Cash Talk,” a bouncy banger produced by none other than Pi’erre Bourne. The song includes zany production from Pi’erre Bourne. It’s low-key trap production but Reese LAFLARE goes in on the track. In comparison to the title track off of Lil Skate For President, he’s a bit more focused in terms of his delivery and bars. 

Both his new singles, “Cash Talk” and “Lil Skate For President,” are certified bangers. Hopefully, this is a sign that Reese has more heat on the way for us. 

Peep “Cash Talk” below. 

Quotable Lyrics
Real ass n***a, need a real ass bitch
She a vegan but she eat dick
Hol’ up, she so cold, I might freeze the bitch
Buss down, look like freezer burn on my left wrist

Jim Jones Assists Vado On "Jeff Hamilton"

Vado and Jim Jones have a long history together although we don’t hear them on wax as frequently as we’d like to. Whenever they do get on the same track together, their chemistry hasn’t changed one bit. The two rappers served up a brand new banger this week titled, “Jeff Hamilton.” As expected, the two bring their Harlem swag to the forefront as they flex their lyrical prowess over massive the massive production courtesy of GPBeatBangerz. It’s another excellent by the two rappers. Hopefully, this is a sign that we’ll be getting more heat from the two in the near future.

Jim Jones blessed fans with his project, El Capo which was entirely produced by The Heatmakerz. He’s been coasting since but considering Jones has been putting in a ton of work this year, it wouldn’t be surprising if we’d get some more new music before the end of the year.

Quotable Lyrics
I park Mazeratti’s up on 8th
Sometimes I look at the sky, could see Gotti in the Wraith
Capo’s like Gotti in the H
And boy, he never lack, you know we got it on the waistline

Meek Mill Catches Wrek With Quavo On Quality Control's "Double Trouble"

While QC as busy overcoming bureaucratic hurdles to have Uzi’s verse resubmitted to “Pink Toes,” Meek Mill was busy stealing the show with nothing but a leaky faucet for a metronome. “Double Trouble” finds Meek Mill assimilating another rapper’s basic form just for the hell of it. To Quavo’s credit, he does set the pace from a standing position. Meek’s contribution is unlike any other on Control the Streets Volume 2.

On “Double Trouble” Quavo and Meek Mill come to terms admirably, with the Philly rapper insisting upon leaving a bedfellow in pool of his and her own thottery. Quite coincidentally, it was a week of second comings for Meek Mill, as Rick Ross reawakened the sleeping giant that was his ex-girlfriend Nicki Minaj, by conjuring up stories of the past on Port of Miami 2. The beauty of commercial rap from a seller’s point of view, is that you can oscillate between romance and plain thottery, and no one’ll call your bluff.

Quotable Lyrics

Mastermind my shirt, yeah, cost a rack 
I just caught a body on the thottie, ain’t call her back
Drink some water, mind my business, that’s how I’m living 
I woke up was in my feelings, give my momma millions 
N—-s broke, tryna beef, I ain’t trying to kill ’em 
Tell ’em eat smoke, yo dawg just wanna ride wit’ them.

–  Meek Mill

A$AP Ferg Taps Rico Nasty For "Butt Naked"

A$AP Ferg finally released a new body of work yesterday titled, Floor Seats. The rapper’s new teasing a new project for a bit now and it’s been a while since he dropped a project. Although it’s a short EP, he did stack up the tracklist with some familiar names including some of the women who are killing the game right now. One woman who’s absolutely been bodying everything in the past year in Rico Nasty. Ferg recruited her for one of the hottest records on the project titled, “Butt Naked.”

Over a gritty electronic beat, Ferg and Rico Nasty go ham on their track “Butt Naked.” It’s a massive track with an eccentric and animated beat that suits both Rico and Ferg’s style perfectly. Their bars are equally cartoonish as they serve up absurdly braggadocious bars.

Peep the track below.

Quotable Lyrics
Baby girl, you made it backstage
They still sellin’ pussy on Backpage
In high school, I stayed with the bad grades
With the weed, I’m smokin’ on grade A

Jordan Peele's "Candyman" Is Officially In Production, Tony Todd Reprises Role

Jordan Peele may have come into the world of television and film through comedy but he’s becoming one of the most revered horror film directors of our time. Get Out was an immaculate body of work, one that would win Best Original Screenplay at the Academy Awards. He followed it up with Us that hit theatres earlier this year which received equal praise. But people are waiting on his next move, now. The director announced his “spiritual sequel” to the cult classic, Candyman. According to a press release from MGM, the film has already gone into production. On top of that, they also announced some spectacular news for day one fans that Tony Todd, the original Candyman, will be reprising his role for Peele’s “spiritual sequel.”

Tony Todd’s addition to the cast isn’t much of a surprise. There were rumors going around earlier this year that he would be reprising his role as the movie’s villain but there were also rumors of a few other actors. Either way, Todd had kind words for Jordan Peele regardless.

“If Jordan wants to do it, do it. I know I’d rather have him do it, someone with intelligence, who’s going to be thoughtful and dig into the whole racial makeup of who Candyman is and why he existed in the first place,” he told Nightmare On Film Street earlier this year. “I know he’ll give homage and I know that if it gets made, I’ll have a plate at the table one way or the other.”

Tyga Welcomes A$AP Rocky Home As They Get Back To The Bag

A$AP Rocky was found guilty of assault but he was fortunate enough to get a suspended sentence. Essentially, the Swedish government just wanted to convict him of the crime but clearly, they didn’t think it was severe enough for Rocky to actually be punished for it. Either way, Rocky is home and Sweden will likely never see him return again unless it’s to serve a sentence. But everyone’s been celebrating his arrival back home since his release earlier this month. While he’s reunited with Tyler, The Creator and other friends from the industry, he made another connection with one of his West Coast homies last night as they got back to the money.

Tyga took to Instagram to share a photo of himself with A$AP Rocky reunited at last. T-Raww shared photos of himself and Rocky in the studio and another one of them linking up presumably after a show. Rocky has a towel over his head while hugging the “Taste” hitmaker. Clearly, Rocky’s a hot commodity these days and everyone is trying to get a verse from him. We’ll have to wait and see what Tyga and Rocky have in the stash.

Aside from his upcoming collab with Rocky, Tyga did bless us with a new album titled, Legendary this summer which included several of his recent hits along with new ones.

CAURAL – “SANZA ECLIPSE”

Caural‘s “Sanza Eclipse” is the fourth official release on the consistently forward-thinking Strange Neighbor label.

Handbook – “All Kinds Of You”

UK producer Handbook is back with another gem titled “All Kinds of you”. A smooth aural journey that is both reflective and soulful. He brings the hard-hitting boombap drums on this while the overall emotional punch is maintained from start to finish. “All Kinds Of You” marks his second release via Stereofox Records and is nothing, but a stellar and emotional journey into the world of instrumental hip hop music.
“The vibe I wanted on this track had to incorporate all things you would associate with a Handbook beat. It had to have big, punchy drums; it had to have the warm bass; it had to have the dusty samples, but mostly it had to ooze positivity and nostalgic feels. Here it is!”
