Since making her illustrious mark with the well-received track “Girls Need Love,” Atlanta’s newcomer Summer Walker now debuts her first studio album Over It – a Billboard Chartbreaker, and a drug come true for any RnB junkie.
The mystifying singer-songwriter delivers a soul-baring, translucent 18-track joint taking listeners along for a sultry-smooth RnB ride throughout the many motions only a rocky relationship can bring.
From earning her first break with the YouTube mash-up “Fake Love, Black Beatles, Pony, Yes,” to collaborating with Drake himself, the LoveRenaissance / Interscope Records‘ artist is now one of the industry’s most sought-after.
It’s a pretty sure thing to say, that after you listen to Over It, an indelible album featuring major players Drake, Bryson Tiller, Usher, 6LACK, PARTYNEXTDOOR, A Boogie Wit da Hoodie, and Jhenè Aiko – Summer Walker is inevitably, a name you’re bound to remember.

EarthGang, an Atlanta-based hip hop duo, take listeners on a mystified trip with their latest album Mirrorland, an A1 Dreamville Records‘ production that exhibits Atlanta’s explicit creative power through an outlandish, circus-themed soundtrack brought to you by two of the rap game’s most whimsical.
Attending to the sounds of two wickedly-talented rappers and Spillage Village co-founders Olu and WowGr8, the flawless pairing behind EarthGang, is to escape the mundane and embrace the extraordinary. Mirrorland is a musical evocation of losing yourself in a house of mirrors, running wild with gypsies, braced by fire blowers and mesmerised by contortionists.
Mirrorland is heavily influenced by the 1978 film The Wiz, an African-American adaptation of The Wizard of Oz. This 14-track album is an inviting exposé of the many mystical landscapes that only Atlanta, Georgia, has to offer.
EarthGang is simply beguiling; a one-of-a-kind artist reinventing the multi-faceted world of hip hop as we know it with Mirrorland, featuring Young Thug, T-Pain, Kehlani, Arin Ray, and Malik.
Admit one to the circus below.
From fervently pushing mixtape after mixtape, a hard-nosed hustle that prompted his signing to Slip-N-Slide Records, Miami-based rapper Mike Smiff makes his official mark at full speed in all-new album All Gas No Brakes (Vol. 3).
The turbulent rapper grinds with a hunger, finesse and compulsive flow that keeps you grounded throughout this 15-track hip hop anthem; a hallmark impossible to achieve without its next-level features from up-and-comers Jordan Hollywood, City Girls, Mozzy, Ali Coyote, Trick Daddy, Gank Gaank, NoStylgia, and more.
In the hustler’s anthem “Do Your Own Thang,” Smiff (feat. NoStylgia) proclaims, “if hustling is your thang cos’ that’s the way you bring the money in, grind on… you better grind on,” and “if stunting is your vibe, clean the wheels up and bring the dope outside, shine on… you better shine on.”
Like the soundtrack to a racer flick, Smiff reverberates the lightning-speed movements of street racers (“Check-In” feat. Trick Daddy) to dodging drama in the fast lane (“4 1 Nite” feat. City Girls), and consequently, what his hustle is all about (“Wanted More“).
This is one ride you won’t want to miss.
