In terms of the speed he rose and the amount of respect he's attained, the artist born Austin Post is a total anomaly. That being said, there's a whole lot riding on this album, and we'll let you judge if Post has hit it out of the park or not with this one.

Rich The Kid
The flexin' continues for Rich Forever president Rich The Kid, who has now released his fourth project of the year (counting two Rich Forever compilations). His latest, Keep Flexin, was supposed to drop last month, though the Halloween release date should work just fine, as this body of work should make for some turnt-up trick-or-treating.
Blac Youngsta may have generated a good bit of hype due to his ridiculous social media stunting. But he's backed it up with his music, the ultimate outlet for his endless hustle and overflowing charisma. Following March's Young & Reckless, the CMG signee is back today with his second tape of the year: Fuck Everybody. Whereas Young & Reckless had no features, Fuck Everybody has some big ones, including Quavo, Young Thug, Jacquees, and YFN Lucci.
