July 2021 New Music Releases

Written by on June 25, 2021


After months of waiting for summer’s arrival, consistent warmth is here and the releases for the month of July are sure to keep the temperature rising. In June, there were efforts from Atlanta’s well-known rap trio, Migos, who delivered their highly anticipated Culture III album and were neck and neck for the No. 1 spot on the Billboard chart with former 2020 XXL Freshman Polo G, who dropped his third LP, Hall of Fame, the same day on June 11. A project from Lil Baby and Lil Durk called The Voice of the Heroes arrived earlier this month as well.

The aforementioned offerings were the perfect preamble for what to expect in the coming weeks.

On July 1, Fenix Flexin is set to drop his solo debut mixtape, Fenix Flexin Vol. 1. Formerly of Shoreline Mafia, the California-bred rhymer is coming through with 15 tracks and a feature from Drakeo the Ruler. The tape also has a tribute to the late Mac P Dawg, an affiliate of Shoreline Mafia who was shot and killed in April of last year. Around that time, Fenix also announced his departure from the rap crew. “Got nun but love for my niggas Nd what we’ve accomplished but this new album will be my last with shoreline as a group,” he tweeted. “Moving foward w my individual career Nd visions for myself Nd where I wanna be.” Shoreline Mafia dropped their debut album and final project as a unit, Mafia Bidness, in July of 2020.

Next month, another posthumous album by the late Pop Smoke is expected to arrive as well. On July 16, Pop’s 17-track effort will be released via Victor Victor Worldwide/Republic Records and will serve as the follow-up to Pop’s massively successful debut, Shoot for the Stars Aim for the Moon, which arrived on July 3, 2020, about five months after his tragic death. The Brooklyn rapper’s team made the announcement of the new album on Instagram on July 23. The video montage in promotion of the forthcoming project features short clips of Pop Smoke as he transitions from childhood to an adult, and in the clip, he can be heard saying: “I aint tryna be cool. We gotta make history.”

More releases will be arriving in July including a new project from Canadian rapper Jazz Cartier. Find the other tunes below.
