Smino – A Matinee Special
Smino is cooking. The Motown signee has dropped another single, “Matinee,” ahead of the October 28 release of his album, Luv For Rent.
“Matinee” is Smino’s pat on the back, rapping about how easily he can turn things up in his romantic relationships.The rapper will surely be busy, with the album drop and the planned tour with JID.
Meanwhile, the soon-to-be-released album would have 15 tracks, including the collaboration with J. Cole, “90 Proof.”
Noah Guy Feat The Spirit Of New Orleans Gospel Choir – Small Talk Carolina

AB Soul – Do Better

Rome Streetz – Kiss The Ring
A year after signing to Griselda Records (a match made in heaven according to some) Rome Streetz dropped his first album under the label, Kiss The Ring.
The album was executive produced by Westside Gunn with barz served by Benny The Butcher, Conway The Machine, Westside Gunn himself, Armani Caesar, and several other Griselda labelmates.
Rome maintains his gritty delivery and lyrics, inviting his fans into his thoughts.
Mount Westmore – Too Big
If The Avengers were a music group, they would be Mount Westmore. The rap collective includes OGs from the West Coast: Ice Cube, Snoop Dogg, E-40, and Too $hort.
“Too Big” is the group’s first release together. Give it a listen for the nostalgia, and newbies can also see how rap is truly done.
French Montana feat. NAV – Fenty
French Montana and NAV are ensuring they ride the momentum gained by their recent album releases. Montana’s Montega LP and NAV’s Demons Protected By Angels are enjoying a lot of replays. With “Fenty,” they might have dropped a banger with replay value.

This 19-track album has no features and is NBA’s second in two months after Realer 2. The birthday boy decided to gift his fans something and ensure he remains in the top 10 of the most streamed artists in 2022.
