Written by DJ AquaTrunk on June 11, 2021
New music Friday is upon us once again, and this week we have the return of a lauded Atlanta trio, the third studio album from a budding star and the latest from one of South Carolina’s talented producer-rappers.
Migos are making what they are hoping with be their triumphant return following an album hiatus of over three years. The Atlanta group are back with their new album Culture III, the follow-up to 2018’s multi-platinum Culture II. The newest features 19 songs and guest appearances from Drake, Cardi B, Polo G, Future, Juice Wrld, Pop Smoke and more. A while in the making, the LP was first teased to be released in 2019. Following multiple delays, Quavo, Offset and Takeoff finally feed their fans with the new project, which features the singles “Straightenin” and “I Need It” featuring YoungBoy Never Broke Again.
Polo G‘s star continues to rise. The 2020 XXL Freshman drops his first project of the year with his third album, Hall of Fame. This time around, the Chicago rhymer brings a 20-song effort that includes a star-studded tracklist. Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, Pop Smoke, DaBaby, Young Thug, Lil Durk, Roddy Ricch, Rod Wave and more all make appearances on the offering. “I usually Don’t Even Tap in For Features But This Time around I’m like fuck it,” ’Lo recently commented about the new LP on Instagram. “I went & Gat sum hard ass records W All of my personal Favorite Artist & Future Hall Of Famers in my book.”
Pi’erre Bourne is known for creating musical landscapes for other artists, but he does the same for himself. The Columbia, S.C. native delivers his latest album, The Life of Pi’erre 5. The follow-up to TLOP4 features artists like Playboi Carti, Lil Uzi Vert who appears on “Sossboy 2,” the LP’s lead single, and more. In addition to Pi’erre unleashing his second album, an accompanying documentary has arrived as well, which was promised to fans by the beatmaker on June 6. “Sossboy 2 last single before album, featuring Uzi Drops Wednesday,” he wrote in a tweet. “Full album Friday. And documentary Friday as well. There.”
This week, Alamo Records’ Lil GotIt served up his newest release, Top Chef GotIt. Released on Thursday (June 10), the new album is executive produced by Gunna and features 15 tracks with guest appearances from Young Thug, Gunna, Yak Gotti and more.
