Featuring releases from Rae Sremmurd, Royce Da 5’9″, BlocBoy JB, and more.

The wait is finally over: it’s almost the weekend. While most will be in a drunken stupor celebrating Cinco de Mayo tomorrow, try and hold onto a few brain cells so that you can appreciate this wild influx of new music. Headlined by Rae Sremmurd’s long-awaited triple disc offering, materializing as Sremmlife 3 and solo albums from the brothers Sremm, today also boasts releases from rising artists, like Yung Gravy’s Snow Cougar, as well as exploding talent BlocBoy JB’s Simi project.

Joining these broad range of artists is Desiigner’s seven-track EP, L.O.D., Royce Da 5’9”’s highly-anticipated album Book of Ryan, Styles P is back with G-Host, and Preme has come through with Light of Day. Given these varied releases, it’s safe to say that consuming these projects won’t be monotonous in the slightest; each album and artist imparts a unique flavor, presenting microcosms of hip-hop’s expansive properties.
