While we anticipate Mick Jenkins’ upcoming sophomore album, Pieces of a Man, scheduled to release this upcoming Friday, he let loose two singles. They’re linked together in the same music video while also being made available separately over on all streaming services. The kicker is that the track “Padded Locks” features the legendary Ghostface Killah. Don’t sleep.
Last month, Atlanta’s own Father released a split single in the form of “Lotto” and “We Had a Deal.” The former comes complete with a guest feature from ABRA and production from Meltycanon while the latter is 100% Father. Both tracks feature artwork from wildman JJ Villard. What more do you need to hear? Both of these go.
Tampa rapper Big Baby aka Big Baby Scumbag dropped the single “Lucky Charm” earlier this Spring and it’s been on repeat. Now that it’s finally getting warmer outside, this is the perfect track for a backyard function, a top-down drive, or a rooftop indulgence. Complete with wild VHS visuals courtesy of DogXanax, the Drip-133 produced track is one that will stay in your head well into summer.
Chicago rapper Adot went absolutely apeshit with his newest set of visuals.

Courtesy of Nick Visuals, the animation does nothing but assist the already strong song, which comes produced by Draedaskimask and which you can stream below.
Back in 2015, TeamSesh producers hnrk and Kodyak created a ten minute EP known as Geosmin. Two years later and the project finally sees the light of day. Enjoy the three instrumentals that act as a time capsule into the past. These all smack.
