The second week in July brings us another great week in music! Keep reading to find some of the albums that are being released this weekend.

1. K.R.I.T. IZ HERE by Big K.R.I.T.
After hearing his 2017 album, 4eva Is a Mighty Long Time, I was a fan. It was an amazing album that showcased his strengths and had a lot of great features as well. Big K.R.I.T. released a compilation album earlier in 2019 that was comprised of the three EPs that he released in 2018, but he's ready to come out with his fourth studio album this weekend. This album is supposed to be a sequel to his 2010 mixtape, K.R.I.T. Wuz Here, and is going to continue to go off of his southern hip-hop style. Check out one of the singles, K.R.I.T. Here.

2. Weather by Tycho
I don't know exactly how Tycho gained so much popularity from his second studio album, Dive, but it definitely turned me on to electronic and ambient music. After listening to that album, I dove into a whole new world of electronic music and I can't thank Tycho enough for it. Dive and Awake will forever be Tycho classics, and in my opinion, electronic classics, but I am excited to see where his album Weather will take us. Tycho, or Scott Hansen, will be the driving force behind the album, but has several features from Saint Sinner. While this is going to be different than the trilogy albums, he will still use some of the same elements he has used in his previous work. Check out the single Easy below!

3. Temperature's Rise by Arizonan Summer
I was a little hesitant about this one since I really don't know anything about this band, but there has been a lot of promotion behind this album. According to the information that is available, Arizonan Summer is an upcoming band in the Scottsdale, Arizona area. The title of the album, Temperature's Rise is a suitable title for the horrendous summers here in Phoenix, but there's more to the album than just that. From the promotional tracks I have heard on Facebook ads, I believe that this guy has a promising future. Be on the lookout for this album this weekend!

The boy band who swept a lot of people off their feet back in 2017 are back with their fifth studio album, GINGER. Brockhampton is a boy band originally formed in San Marcos, Texas. The group eventually moved to Los Angeles and grew in popularity.

The first track off the album is NO HALO. Compared to all of the other Brockhampton albums, this is a mellow opener. It starts off with a guitar and high pitched vocals. Throughout the track, members of the group talk about their imperfections and some of the issues they have faced. The title of the track, NO HALO, probably refers to the fact that they aren't perfect people. Merlyn stood out most on this track since …

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 Rosalía and Lil Baby.…

Bandana is a collaborative project between American rapper Freddie Gibbs and American producer Madlib. This is their second collaboration together, with Piñata being the first project back in 2014. Judging by the album, these two artists work really well together and have dropped a solid album this year.

The first track is Obrigado and it is an introduction track. The first part is a small clip from Freddie Gibb's uncle. The second part took me some time to actually realize the speaker was speaking English. Obrigado is Portuguese for "thank you." The title of the track could also be a play on words of the Japanese word…
