As we power through another working week, HYPEBEAST has rounded up a carefully curated list of Music Projects You Missed This Week.

This selection includes a full-length release from KOTA The Friend and Nyck Caution, new singles from Deb Never, Flo Milli, Smino, a collab from GR$$D, Guapdad 4000 and Y2, and a leak courtesy of Rico Nasty.


KOTA The Friend - Lyrics to GO, Vol. 2

To prep for the release of his EVERYTHING followup, KOTA The Friend shared the second installment in his Lyrics to GO mixtape series. Clocking in at a short 15 minutes, the independent artist revealed that Lyrics to GO was “created to be the perfect way to get a heavy message across in a minute or less and it turned into something so significant.” He continued, “I wouldn’t be here without those short videos, so I decided to make it a series and drop a new volume every year to stay grounded. Most importantly, to remind my day 1’s, I’m still here for you.”

Flo Milli – “Roaring 20s”

Rising rapper Flo Milli and Kenny Beats teamed up to deliver the fun yet impressive new cut, “Roaring 20s.” Sampling “If I Were A Rich Man” from the Original Broadway Cast Recording of Fiddler on the Roof, the track holds a more personal meaning for Milli. “The Roaring 20s was a period in history of dramatic social and political change,” she said. “Last year I was able to break through during a very difficult time for not only our country but, the world. Born in 2000, and having my breakout year in 2020, I feel like I’m living in the new age of the Roaring 20s.”

Nyck Caution - Anywhere But Here

Nyck Caution shared his stellar new album Anywhere But Here, enlisting the likes of Joey Bada$$, Denzel Curry, KOTA The Friend and more. The 14-track project is billed as “a soulful and self-assured effort,” and arrives after years of personal turmoil including the recent death of the 26-year-old rapper’s father. Introspective and reflective, the album explores all facets of his personality and takes a long look at how exactly he’s changed.

Deb Never – “Someone Else”

After a creative dry spell following her May 2020 quarantine project Intermission, Deb Never booked a one way flight to London without really having an intention or a plan. She moved in with her longtime collaborator Michael Percy, and in the next months, she found herself working and writing new music — the first of the onslaught being the calming and inviting cut, “Someone Else.”
