OGM’s ‘Platinum Picks’ from New Music Friday (July 16)

Stay “In The Mix” of what’s new every week with Our Generation Music‘s top picks from New Music Friday.

Pop Smoke“FAITH”

Pop Smoke’s highly-anticipated project FAITH is currently available on all digital streaming platforms. Featuring the likes of Kanye West, Pusha T, The Neptunes, 21 Savage, Rick Ross, Kid Cudi and others, each rapper takes their turn paying homage to the fallen superstar — whose second posthumous release is heartbreakingly fitting for the King of New York.

Trippie Redd & Lil Uzi Vert“Holy Smokes”

The second single from Trippie Redd’s upcoming album Trip At Knight is here in the form of the Lil Uzi Vert assisted rage banger “Holy Smokes.” The track itself is a euphoria of synths and hard-hitting drums, as both Trippie and Uzi spit and sing with ease. This is sure to become a summer song of the year contender, you don’t want to miss what Trippie has next.

SSGKobe “MIA”

SSGKobe’s ascension from 16-year-old newbie to teenage star has been a real treat to watch for music fans. Blessed with the singing skills fit for today’s rapstar, Kobe is back in his bag on his latest track “MIA.” Accompanied by a coveted Lyrical Lemonade visual, Kobe is rising before our eyes, becoming the star he was always been meant to be.

Kevin Abstract feat. $NOT & slowthai “SLUGGER

Amid the news following Brockhampton’s latest album ROADRUNNER — that the group would be splitting up to pursue solo ventures after this year — Kevin Abstract is already a step ahead. Rumored to have been working on his solo project throughout 2021, it seems fans have gotten a step closer to unfolding the truth, dropping the colorful “SLUGGER” with $NOT and slowthai.

Funk Flex, Polo G, King Von — “Lurkin (Remix)

Funk Flex taps Polo G for the remix of King Von’s “Lurkin,” as the Chicago all-star’s chemistry is undeniable on this rebooted cut.

Lil Gnar “No Regular”

Lil Gnar has been having quite the year thus far. Dropping “Missles” with Trippie Redd and “NEW BUGATTI” with Chief Keef and Ski Mask the Slump God in May, Gnar returns with “No Regular” — complete with razor-sharp synths and bouncy production. Still without a full-length album since 2019, hopefully “No Regular” is the start of a new era for the young Atlanta up-and-comer.

DDG & 2KBaby “Zack And Cody”

Remble “It’s Remble”

Remble’s unequivocally concise cadence makes him completely different from what you’re used to hearing. His debut mixtape “It’s Remble” showcases the young “Touchable” talent’s knack for creating particular pockets within his tracks. With features in Drakeo The Ruler, Mozzy and more, Remble is ready to rumble the rap game with his uncanny flows and rhymes.

KSI“All Over The Place”

YouTuber, boxer, gamer, rapper — KSI is an undefinable force, as his latest album All Over The Place showcases the UK-based artist in his final form. Recruiting the likes of Future, 21 Savage, Lil Durk and Polo G, it seems as though KSI has earned the respect of his contemporaries on his latest record. Progressing once more, KSI now fully understands his sound, as All Over The Place looks to make a push for chart recognition in the States.

Blxst & Bino Rideaux — “Sixtape 2”

Logic — “My Way

Logic stays consistent with this vibey new cut titled “My Way.” This is Logic’s fourth consecutive release since coming out of retirement, as Bobby Tarantino may have a full-length project in the work — stemming from this string of singles.
