Chika, Kalan.FrFr, Skinnyfromthe9, More – New Projects This Week
Written by DJ AquaTrunk on March 11, 2021
Similar to the wise words of Drizzy Drake, “If you’re reading this, you already know it’s new music Friday.” And now that it’s the end of the week, this means everyone is a step closer to payday and your favorite rappers have dropped off some new music. This week, there is a little something for everybody because hip-hop is taking spring by storm.
Reemerging after the success of 2019’s Industry Games, Chika doubles back with Once Upon a Time. The six-track EP shows the 2020 XXL Freshman is back in her element with a mesh of trap and gospel-based productions. “Fairy Tales” featuring BJ The Chicago Kid and “Cinderella Pt. 1” brings a vibrant energy to the project while “Cinderella Pt. 2” unveils the heart of the fantasy-themed effort. Overall, Once Upon a Time is proof that regardless of the bag Chika secures for herself, a hit record isn’t far behind.
Roc Nation’s newest signee, Kalan.Frfr, drops the highly anticipated follow-up to his 2018 project Twofr. The second installment of the serialized LP is a 13-piece album featuring Stunna 4 Vegas, Mozzy and Cypress Moreno. Kalan‘s “Scoring” appears on the LP along with “Get In” and “No Love,” which were released prior to the album’s arrival. The 25-year-old Los Angeles native isn’t here to play as he delivers a project filled his melodic and emotive singing/rapping that’s certainly worth listening to.
Florida-born and New Jersey-bred rapper Skinnyfromthe9 offers his album Love Me Now as well. It’s been about two years since the rapper released his last effort, It’s an Evil World, which features appearances from former XXL Freshmen Fetty Wap, Kap G and PnB Rock. However, Skinny did drop a track last year, “In My Feelings,” with Hitta Castro.
Lil Migo is also among the other rappers who have released new music this week. Check out the new joints below.
