"Black Friday ain't black this year," YG wrote on Twitter earlier this month. "I'm painted that bitch RED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Coke N Butter
With the long Hot 100 runs of "CoCo" and "Cut It," O.T. Genasis has proven himself a hitmaker, and he's getting ready to release another project that should provide more of his catchy take on street rap. O.T.'s new 12-track mixtape Coke N Butter arrived this glorious Friday morning, featuring guest appearances from the likes of YG, T.I., Quavo, Remy Ma, and 2 Chainz and production from Zaytoven, Murda Beatz, Yung Lan, BricksOnDaBeat, and more.
One of YG's flagship artists is gearing up to drop a new mixtape, All Blassik, on August 4th. Slim 400 came through yesterday with a new leak, "Can't Get Caught," and he follows that up today with the mixtape cover art and tracklist ahead of the release next week.
The Golden Child 2
It's pretty remarkable that Lil Twist just turned 23 years old, given that he signed to Young Money nearly a decade ago. Last we heard from him, he'd just got hit with six felonies. Knocked down but never knocked out, Twist returns with a very solid mixtape called The Golden Child 2.
Rich Than Famous
Rich The Kid
Quality Control rapper Rich The Kid gifts fans a mixtape on Christmas day, namely the 13-track project Rich Than Famous. The release features a varied guest list that includes YG, Migos, Bobby Shmurda, Rowdy Rebel, Gucci Mane, Peewee Longway and Johnny Cinco. Production is also handled by a eclectic cast, with Harry Fraud, KE On The Track, Deko, OG Parker, Jahlil Beats, Nas Beats, Metro Boomin, Murda, Zaytoven and Spiffy all contributing tracks.
#000000 & #FFFFFF
The Neighborhood are a California rock band who have been known to dabble in hip hop, and their latest decision to release a mixtape -- and subsequently pack that mixtape with some huge rap features sees them continuing further down that path. Having a major label deal certainly didn't hurt in collecting verses from plenty of relevant West Coast artists, as well as a few from other regions. This project flaunts features from the likes of YG, Casey Veggies, French Montana, Danny Brown, 100s, G-Eazy, Dej Loaf, OG Maco and more.
At just 14 years old, Young Marqus recently became the youngest artist to ever perform at the BET Hip Hop Awards, and now he's ready to step out with his first mixtape. The C.L.A.E. (which stands for "Creating Legacy All Day Every Day") is hosted by DJ Mustard, and features Mecole, Kirko Bangz, YG, James Fauntleroy, DeLorean, Pooh Bear, Marion Bands, Zac Mann and Problem.
Keepin It 400
With his album My Krazy Life blowing up in 2014, YG was able to team up with longtime homies DJ Mustard and Ty Dolla $ign to launch the Pushaz Ink record label earlier this year. Along with PC, Reem Riches, RJ and Tee Cee, Slim 400 is one of the label's first signees, and he releases his first tape as a Pushaz Ink artist today. Keepin It 400 is hosted by DJ Lil Keem, and guest appearances come from Gudale, B Boy, YG, Kiddoe, AD, Budda Ru, Tee Flii, DJ Mustard, RJ, D Lo and many more.
When the last Progression mix came out, Kirko Bangz was nowhere near as well known as he is now. Perhaps that's the beauty of the Progression series; there's some real, erm, progress being made. Not just career-wise but musically as well.
