Inside: the ambitious album Fivio Foreign, the dramatic release of Vince Staples, the album from the supergroup Wiz Khalifa and Big KRIT, as well as the broken heart of Syd.
While most foreign releases bypass streaming in Russia, we decided not to dedicate a separate post to each release, but to collect the most interesting albums, mixtapes and EPs in one place. You can listen with VPN enabled on Soundcloud, YouTube or YouTube Music.
Fivio Foreign – “BIBLE”
One of the main drill rappers of New York Fivio Foreign presented a new album. The artist performed brightly in “Off The Grid” on Kanye West’s “Donda” and in return invited him as an executive producer for his release. Behind the abbreviation is the phrase “Basic instructions before evacuation from Earth”, which refers to the eponymous track Killah Priest.
On the album Fivio has gathered an army of collaborators, in his tracks you can hear verses by Kanye West, Quavo, A $ AP Rocky, Polo G, Coi Leray, Ne-Yo, Lil Yachty, Lil Tjay, KayCyy and Blueface.
Vince Staples – “Ramona Park Broke My Heart”
Vince Staples announced “Ramona Park Broke My Heart” at the same time as “Vince Staples”. Like the previous album, the new release turned out to be autobiographical and introspective. The rapper dedicated 16 new songs to the area where he spent his childhood and for the first time got acquainted with the world of gangs and street fights, as well as the most expensive people.
In one of the longest releases in his discography, Staples does almost no invited artists. Only one song features the Lil Baby verse, and the other Ty Dolla $ ign sings the chorus.
Coi Leray – “Trendsetter”
The daughter of rapper Benzino and former friend of Trippie Redd Coy Leray began recording songs in 2018 and has already gained popularity in ticking. A year ago, she was among the XXL freshmen and finished her verse on a traditional sipher with an unexpected twist. Her dance was not received positively by conservative spectators, and the girl received a dose of ridicule and humiliation.
Her first solo album is a response to all the haters and conservatives who underestimated the young artist a year ago. The girl declares herself in 20 tracks and is supported by Nikki Minaj, Polo G, A Boogie wit da Hoodie, Fivio Foreign, HER, Young MA, Nav and Pooh Shiesty.
42 Dugg & EST Gee – “Last Ones Left”
42 Dugg and EST Gee have successfully brought Detroit style to popular rap. Both artists released an impressive album in 2021, recorded a fit with Lil Baby and received tens of millions of views. The two of them recorded many joint tracks, so the joint album was only a matter of time.
In “Last Ones Left”, they immerse listeners in the world of their streets, celebrate their own success, remember lost friends and meet many like-minded artists.
South – “Broken Hearts Club”
The member of the group The Internet delights listeners with her second solo album. “Broken Hearts Club” was supposed to be an album about a happy relationship in which the girl was, but in the process she broke up with her partner. Therefore, the release consists of two halves: a romantic first and an introspective, difficult second.
In addition to frequent collaborators like Lucky Daye and Nikki Davy, Smino and Kehlani join Sid in the songs.
Girl Talk, Wiz Khalifa, Big KRIT, Smoke DZA – “Full Court Press”
All four artists are united by 10 years of strong friendship and many collaborations, so in 2017 they planned a big joint release. They finished work on it only 5 years later, and it is a great gift for fans who missed the style of artists from the early 2010s.
