Benny The Butcher - Tana Talk 4

Benny The Butcher enlists J. Cole, Diddy, Conway The Machine, Westside Gunn, Boldy James, Stove God Cooks and 38 Spesh for Tana Talk 4. “With Tana Talk 4 I have a chip on my shoulder. No one thinks I can recreate that energy. I’m not trying to create the same energy, but TT3 was who I was then, what I was going through. The things you hear me talking about on Tana Talk 4, is me now and who I’ve become” he said in a statement. “It’s special to me, because I get to talk about things that I would never talk about on any other project. Tana Talk is the series where you get me, my deepest, darkest feelings. I’m sure people are going to be surprised at the things I’m saying on TT4, but they are also going to get an inside look at things.”

Lucky Daye - CandyDrip

Lucky Daye is back with his first studio album in three years, CandyDrip. The 17-track project is billed as the artist’s “redefinition of modern R&B through a futuristic, Sci-Fi world, shaped by the inspiration of Afrofuturism,” and features collaborations with Smino, Lil Durk and Chiiild. “Candydrip focuses mostly on flavors,” he explained, “and the idea of flavors versus Painted, which was about colors. These are a bunch of different flavors of songs, giving you ear candy in different ways.”
