Producer and MC Oddisee delivers The Icerberg, his third new solo project in the last 12-months, via Mello Music Group. Described “as a plea for humanity to dig deeper in search of understanding and common ground”, the 12-track album’s subject matter touches on a number of Rap tropes, only to subvert them through Odd’s deeply thoughtful bars. Guests include Toine and Oliver St. Louis. Stream the album in full below and purchase now on Bandcamp.

In addition to the aforementioned guests, Rapper Big Pooh and theMind also show up for guest appearances.

The spirit of Big Pun looms large over Plata O Plomo, the new collaborative album from Fat Joe and Remy Ma. Without Pun, Joe’s partner and Remy’s benefactor, this album never happens, it’s as simple as that. It’s something of a wonder that the planets aligned for it to happen so many years after Pun’s passing, Remy’s 7-year prison bid and Joe’s countless reinventions. It certainly could’ve became one of those perpetually delayed pipe dreams of an album that never materialized, but after the success of “All The Way Up”, Joe and Remy had the clout to get it done. The project is a tight 12-tracks with guest appearances from French Montana, Ty Dolla $ign, Kent Jones, The-Dream, BJ the Chicago Kid, Sevyn Streeter and Stephanie Mills.
Starlito is clearly in a zone this year. Having just dropped the Karate In The Garage EP with Don Trip, and with the Stepbrothers 3 project due in less than a month, he’s back today with his new solo project Manifest Destiny. Lead by the singles “Once Upon A Time” with Scarface, and the Metro Boomin-produced “Too Much”, the 14-track tape also features appearances from Curren$y, Kevin Gates and Mobsquad Nard, Scotty ATL and Don Trip.
Money Makin Nique drops off his new project Bring Money Witchu. I didn’t even know this was dropping until I saw the new single “Onomatopoeia” pop up the other day, but that song goes and Nique has always beeb consistent, so this should definitely be worth a look. He’s got guest appearances from Fortbowie and Que, plus production by Willafool and Zaytoven, Alchemist, Slade Da Monsta, Ducko McFli and others.
Atlanta’s Two-9 collective is an absurdly talented group of individuals that have consistently impressed and entertained me since I first came across their music back in 2012. From Curtis Williams to Key! to FatKidsBrotha and Retro Su$h!, they all get busy with their own unique styles and come together seamlessly on group efforts. Although they’ve put out numerous mixtapes both collectively and as their separate entities, today they finally release their debut album FRVR. The project features the entire crew collaborating in various combinations of members across 12-tracks, just as they typically do.
I’m very happy to present a full stream of the soundtrack to BB Movie, a film by CJ Wallis of Jet Life productions. You probably know CJ’s name from his excellent and extensive work for Curren$y and the Jets family on their official videos, artwork and general aesthetic, but BB has been quietly making noise on the independent film scene since its release last year. Here’s a brief synopsis:
BB is a provocative, psycho-sexual thriller which is quickly becoming one of the best reviewed independent film’s of the year. BB is the story of a girl named Leah Lamont who, under the name ‘Candy Cummings,’ performs strip shows online from her apartment for thousands of strangers every day, never fully knowing the extent of evils that could be watching on the other side of the screen.
In talking with CJ the other day, I was surprised to find out that the soundtrack was only available via a BitTorrent bundle, which is a great way to distribute data, but not exactly the most user-friendly method of consuming music. So CJ has made the full album available for streaming and download via Datpiff. The 27-track offering features a number of guest features from Curren$y and Jet Life artists such as Cornerboy P, T.Y. and Le$, as well as 3D Na’Tee, B-Real, Fiend, Wiz Khalifa and Lil Wayne. It also includes selections from the BB Movie score, including numerous selections from the film’s musical narrator MaryGold, Rykka and Hayley Richman.
