As we recover from overindulging in our Thanksgiving feasts, hip-hop is offering some new tunes to help us mellow out and enjoy the holiday weekend. This week, there’s a offering from a Louisiana rhymer who oftentimes has a lot to say and rarely holds back and an underdog Brooklyn rhymer.
Boosie BadAzz hits fans with another project with the release of his album Mississippi. The album, along with another LP by the name of Back 2 BR, were supposed to arrive last week, but due to the tragic murder of Young Dolph last Wednesday (Nov. 17), Boosie decided against dropping the projects. He said via Twitter, “IM GO SET MY ALBUMS DATES BACK TO THE 25th of NOVEMBER WITH RESPECT FOR THE #dolph situations BACK TO BR & MISSISSIPPI BOTH ALBUMS DROPPING ON THE 11/25.”
Boosie released one of his singles “Free Game,” along with an accompanying video, on Wednesday (Nov. 24). On Tuesday (Nov. 23), Boosie unleashed the visual for his single “People on the Way” featuring BBE AJ from his Back 2 BR album. Boosie’s last album, Goat Talk 2, arrived back in July. The LP contained 19 songs in total and featured appearances from Pooh Shiesty and more. The video for the joint “Drive the Yacht,” which appears on GT2, came out this week as well. Despite the controversy Boosie has been involved in as of late, that hasn’t impacted his music.
Troy Ave is back with a new album. The Brooklyn rapper comes through with the new LP, God Is Great Paper Straight. The new album contains 11 tracks including the singles “The Weatherman” and “Money Dance (1-2-3).” God Is Great Paper Straight is the follow-up to the May compilation Kill or Be Killed.
