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!
