Another New Music Friday (April 14) is upon us, and though two of the biggest releases of the week came from female artists like Nicki Minaj and Doja Cat, we've got plenty of male entertainers to give flowers too as well today. Among them is NLE Choppa, whose follow-up to his 2019 project, Cottonwood, arrived on DSPs at midnight. On the original, 10-track effort, the Memphis native worked with just Blueface and Meek Mill, but this time around, his roster of collaborators has become considerably more impressive.
Of course, we've already heard Choppa work with 2Rare on their "DO IT AGAIN" single, and he came together with rap legend Lil Wayne on "AIN'T GONNA ANSWER" ahead of Cottonwood 2 as well. Aside from those, the release's other singles include "MO UP FRONT," "IN THE UK," and "CHAMPIONS." There was also "SLUT ME OUT," which landed the 20-year-old in some hot water after dog walking Sukihana and Sexyy Red in the accompanying remix's visual earlier this month.

As for previously unheard joint efforts, the 22-track album boasts "COLD GAME" with Rick Ross, "ON GOD" featuring Queen Naija," and "DISABILITY CHECKS" alongside Polo G and G Herbo. Other noteworthy guests tapped by Choppa are Duke Deuce, Kevin Gates, Fivio Foreign, Lola Brooke, and Modesty. We also hear some impressive solo work from the rising star on his latest release, including titles like "ALL I KNOW," "PRETTY BROWN," and "THUG IT OUT."
