The best new hip-hop albums of the week include projects from superstars, new rappers, and the return of one “retired” MC.
Here at Okayplayer, we know it can be tough to keep track of all the new hip-hop albums dropping every week. Every Friday, there’s collaborative projects, deluxe editions of previously-released albums, a seemingly-endless amount of EPs, and even past projects being added to streaming libraries.
This week is no different. One of the two biggest albums of the year dropped this Friday: Tyler, the Creator’s Call Me When You Get Lost and Doja Cat’s Planet Her. (Both are great, by the way.)
But you also have the return of Hiatus Kaiyote and Modest Mouse; albums from newcomers like BFB da Packman and Mike!; and the return of one retired MC, Logic.
