When the news of Mac Miller‘s sudden death surfaced, the rap world in which he had bestowed with an inimitable voice, was absolutely devastated.

Now, under the drive of powerhouse producer, Jon Brion, who closely worked with Miller for several years, Circles, the follow-up album to Swimming, is posthumously complete – and as it manifests, the artist’s melodic cycle has finally come full circle.

While Circles was intended to be the second album in a three-part series, according to Brion, the 12-track album which has no features, just Miller – upfront and vulnerable, provides a compelling insight into his ongoing journey of self-discovery; everywhere from facing the complexities of a “Blue World,” where realising “reality’s so hard to find,” amid searching for “someone to save [him]” from his very own construct (“I Can See“).

The talent that is Mac Miller, is far beyond comprehensible, from writing his own lyrics and producing illustrious beats, to distinguishably gifting the world with an alternative rap voice that compels a most diverse audience; his genuine, kind-hearted soul evoked a certain vulnerability that any human being can relate to – an aptness that simply makes him unforgettable.

Circles is the absolute testament to his life’s work… may Mac Miller live on.

Atlantic Records‘ fresh-faced rapper-singer and songwriter, YBN Cordae, stupefies listeners with his debut solo album The Lost Boy – a bona fide and impassioned project well beyond his years.

YBN Cordae, born Cordae Amari Dunston, first made a name for himself as part of the YBN gang, the young “internet rap clique” that went viral. Now, Cordae rightly sets him self apart as an independent artist with the very aptitude to rewrite the rules of the game.

Cordae is undeniably unique by nature, flipping the switch from witty (“RNP” feat. Anderson .Paak) and somewhat comical, to gritty and gripping (“Broke as F**k“), everywhere from spitting full-hearted bars (“Nightmares Are Real” feat. Pusha T) , to delving into soul with mellow vocals; this is one upcoming artist the industry’s bound to watch.

The Lost Boy also features Chance the Rapper, Ty Dolla $ign, Meek Mill, and Arin Ray.

J. Cole, together with fellow Dreamville Records‘ artists EARTHGANG, Ari Lennox, J.I.D, Omen, Cozz, Bas, and Lute, present Revenge of The Dreamers III, and it’s nothing but the dream compilation we’ve all been waiting for. 

Dreamville Records, founded by J. Cole and his manager Ibrahim Hamad, has finally released the next chapter, a long-awaited follow-up to part II (2015). The album also features guest artists Kendrick Lamar, Buddy, Ty Dolls $ign, Vince Staples, Dreezy, and much more greatness.

Revenge of The Dreamers III (ROTD3) is the ultimate euphoria for hip-hop and alternative R&B fans alike, placing listeners within a realm of rapture; an epic line-up of astounding artists, an unrivalled lyrical flow, bustling bars, heavy-hitting hooks, fresh beats, honey-like melodies, and of course, topped off with the quintessential soul samples to have you hypnotised from the very start until end.

This 18-track marvel is simply incalculable; the procured result of both a collaboration and a community of artists that no one other than J. Cole could bring together.
