We have come to the first week in July. Just when you thought there weren't going to be a lot of big projects dropping this Friday, several artists have recently announced they are going to drop an album this weekend. Here are some of the albums I'm looking forward to this weekend.

1. Revenge of the Dreamers III by Dreamville
Revenge of the Dreamers III is a follow up to the 2015 album, Revenge of the Dreamers II. This record includes a lot of people who are signed to Dreamville Records, such as J. Cole and Bas who had an eventful 2018. Over 100 people were invited to the recording session for this album, whether they accepted the invitation or not is questionable, but it might have a lot to offer. I'm a bit skeptical when it comes to collaborative albums with a large amount of artists since everyone has their own style of rapping/singing. However, since they are already on their third album, fans still keep flocking to it. Check out one of the singles to their album below!

2. ERYS by Jaden Smith
After a long awaited return, Jaden Smith is back with a new album. It was rumored to be released in May or June, but it has been pushed back to July. He released a three track pack titled "ERYS IS COMING" back in April to hype up the album. His father, Will Smith, also made a surprise appearance at his Coachella set. If you didn't notice, ERYS is just SYRE spelled backwards, which was the name of his debut album. There are a lot of amazing features planned for this album, with his sister, Willow Smith, being one of them.

3. Flamingo by Olympia 
I found out about Olympia while browsing upcoming albums on the internet. Olympia, or Olivia Bartley, is an Australian pop singer and songwriter. Flamingo will be her second studio album and will have twelve different tracks. I checked out her single Hounds and it looks promising. Check out the single below!

What albums are you looking forward to this weekend? Let me know down in the comments section!

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.…

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…
