This week started out slow, at least when it comes to new songs, although news has been poppin since the week began-- although it wasn't the necessarily good news.

September 2016 is no more. It was a good month, a month that gave us much new music as we could handle. September 2016 saw the release of dozens of quality hip hop and R&B albums and mixtapes.

It's that time of the week. The past seven days have been pretty eventful-- the momentum all started on last weekend, when a new episode of OVO Sound Radio dropped as many gems as one could hope for in the span of seven days-- except they did it all within the span of their two-hour segment.
