Album: Cozy Tapes Vol. 2: Too Cozy
Artist: ASAP Mob
Label: RCA

ASAP MOB

ASAP Mob brings back the posse cut with this unreal mix of New York artists, making each track a banger. Feel so Good, FYBR, Bahamas all awesome hip-hop songs. ASAP Mob is the modern Wu-Tang Clan.

Album: Unpeeled
Artist: Cage The Elephant
Label: RCA
Released: July 28

Cage The Elephant "Unpeeled"

Unpeeled is one of the best live albums I’ve ever heard, Cage the Elephant sounds exactly how they do in studio! The way they perform live makes them so much more enjoyable bringing so much energy. Plus the track list is non stop hit after hit with the old school rock vibes.

Album: Saturation II
Artist: Brockhampton
Label: N/A 
Released: Aug. 1st

Brockhampton "Saturation II"

Brockhampton, much like ASAP Mob, is doing the posse cut giving you a whole lot of different styles on each track, and with Saturation II they kill it making some awesome summer jams and very deep thoughtful tracks.

Kodak Black "Painting Pictures"

Kodak Black is a very controversial rapper, but that hasn’t stop him from rising to the top of the charts, with Painting Pictures, his first studio release.

Kodak has already gained a huge fan base to support this album, and he didn’t disappoint with the tracks off this album such as “Patty Cake”.

Album: 4:44
Artist: Jay-Z
Label: Roc Nation
Released: June 30

Jay-Z "4:44"

Jay-Z’s first solo album in a few years is such a look into his current life and things he has been through since his success. It’s a great soulful album with lots of awesome features such as Damien Marley, Frank Ocean and his wife Beyonce.
