Tyler, The Creator — CALL ME IF YOU GET LOST
Tyler, The Creator’s seventh studio album is here just in time for the summer. CALL ME IF YOU GET LOST is branded by his unique mix of style and personality. The new album flaunts guest verses from Ty Dolla $ign and NBA Youngboy (“Wusyaname”), Lil Wayne (“Hot Wind Blows”), Lil Uzi Vert and Pharell (“Juggernaut”) and more. Across the album, DJ Drama’s genre-defying voice inflections help bring to life Tyler’s aforementioned tweet for a “GANGSTA GRILLZ TAPE…” With this most recent project serving as the follow up to 2019’s Grammy-winning LP (IGOR), it’s evident that Tyler has perfected the formula for an effective rollout by today’s standards: randomized billboard placements around the world and a zany sense of humor.
Bfb Da Packman — Fat N****s Need Love Too
Flint, Michigan’s beloved lifestyle rapper Bfb Da Packman has released his debut album. Riding the surge of momentum from a string of critically-acclaimed singles and viral moments, Packman’s rise in music has been one prolonged wager on personality: he’s hilariously blunt and unapologetic in his rhymes. The internet’s favorite mailman turned rapper recruited featured appearances by Wiz Khalifa (“Fun Time”), Lil Yachty & DDG (“Honey Pack”), Benny The Butcher (“Frenchmen”), Coi Leray (“Ocean Prime”), Sada Baby (“Free Joe Exotic”, “Big Bertha”) and more. Packman’s witty punchlines and pure likability have afforded him the opportunity to become a force amongst rap’s next wave of talent.
BONES – InLovingMemory
BONES continues to turn the page on his storied success with the release of InLovingMemory. The third full-length project from the TeamSESH founder is driven by distorted synths and sadboi energy. BONES’ tonal versatility is best served with raw emotion and a pocket of pragmatic darkness derived from years of isolation. InLovingMemory is fueled by an experimental soundscape that’s like a blend of lo-fi strains and emo rap — but BONES’ world isn’t all doom and gloom, as evident by his 80’s themed outro “TwasTheDarkestNight”. The sudden change in pace is strangely comforting, providing a dope parallel to the uncanny vibe on display throughout the solo effort.
