Since the release of VIEWS, things have calmed down slightly, however today turned out to be a massive day for album releases, as you can tell by the multiple album streams we've posted this morning. These aren't necessarily Drake-status artists who are about to break the internet, but the quality is extremely high-- Skepta, JMSN, James Blake, Rittz, Kaytranada and Mike Posner have all dropped albums today (and I'm probably missing someone). Following recent controversy over the past week, 50 Cent decided to release new music today with Chris Brown, while Breezy celebrated his birthday with a new single of his own. Birdman continued to capitalize off his Breakfast Club fiasco with his new single "Respek" (which was mediocre according to our discerning users), and Tupac's mother passing led The Game to pay homage on wax.

However when it comes to this week's Staff Picks, we kick things off with some trap-themed music before seguing into some softer and more thoughtful sounds from Childish Major, Nipsey Hussle and Kehlani. Check it out below. TGIF.
