Albums I'm Looking Forward To: 5/24/19

While not as exciting as last week, there are still plenty of albums to look forward to this week. Check out the list I created below!

1. Flamagra by Flying Lotus

This album is at the TOP of my listening list this Friday. It has been almost five years since we last heard a Flying Lotus project. He has quietly been in the studio, such as producing a few songs for Kendrick Lamar, but never produced a full project since You're Dead! There are also a lot of great features on the track list, such as Anderson .Paak, Shabazz Palaces, and more! Check out one of the singles from the album!

2. Escape From New York by Beast Coast

Beast Coast is a newly formed hip hop group. It consists of Flatbush Zombies, Joey Bada$$, a few other members from Pro Era, and more. They have dropped some promising singles so far, and it makes sense since Beast Coast is made up of some of the best rappers there are right now. This will definitely be an album you won't want to miss. Check out my favorite single from them right now, Left Hand.

3. Hybrid by Collie Buddz

I am a huge fan of reggae, and since summer is around the corner, the reggae albums are about to start rolling out! From a Twitter post back in 2018, Collie Buddz said he is going to be self-producing this album, so it will be interesting to see how this album turns out. I was never a huge fan of Collie Buddz, but like I said, it's summer and I'm excited for new reggae music! Check out his single, Legal Now.


Are you looking forward to any of these albums? What albums are you excited for this weekend? Let me know in the comments section!

  1. These all sound like really great albums. I used to listen to Collie Buddz, I think I'm going to have to start listening to him again

Of course, Travis Scott was going to release something before the end of the year. JACKBOYS is a hip hop collective consisting of Travis Scott, Sheck Wes, and Don Toliver. Despite the collective only having three members, the EP JACKBOYS has some guest features from Quavo, Offset, and many more.

To start off the album, we have a remix of Travis Scott's HIGHEST IN THE ROOM, which was released earlier this year. If you haven't heard the original, it has a trap beat with a high-pitched vocalist in the background. The remix keeps the chorus and his first verse, but then we have the addition of RosalĂ­a and Lil Baby.…

Allah-Las is an American indie rock band consisted of four different members. LAHS marks the band's fourth studio album. While I have always known about Allah-Las, I have never had the chance to sit down and listen to one their albums, even though they have been on my "listen to list" for a while now. Now, with the release of LAHS, I had the chance to sit down and give them a chance, and I definitely wasn't disappointed.

The album starts out with Holding Pattern. There's an easy guitar groove going on at the very beginning. Right off the bat, this reminds me of some old-school classic rock, as we…

CZARFACE is a hip hop collective formed by hip hop duo 7L & Esoteric, as well as Wu-Tang Clan's Inspectah Deck. CZARFACE has had an eventful year, starting off with CZARFACE Meets Ghostface, which is a collaborative project between CZARFACE and Ghostface Killah from Wu-Tang Clan. CZARFACE also dropped an instrumental album titled Double Dose of Danger (which I was able to snag on Record Store Day this year!) and the album I am going to be reviewing, The Odd Czar Against Us. While I just discovered CZARFACE last year, they definitely reminded me of MF DOOM, with the comic book-like characters. Both also use…
