On Nov. 5, Aminé dropped his second mixtape TWOPOINTFIVE, containing 12 songs spanning 27 minutes, including his promotional single “Charmander.”
On Thursday (Nov. 4), Aminé revealed the mixtape’s cover, which was designed by Nick Holiday, who has frequently collaborated with BROCKHAMPTON.
This is Aminé’s first project in over a year, as it is also his first project without any features. It should be an intriguing experience to see the Portland rapper carry an entire project by himself.

Aminé is out of “Limbo” and finally back in action.
Attached to this announcement was a trailer for the mixtape, featuring an appearance from influencer and comedian Ricky Thompson, who narrated Aminé’s prior mixtape ONEPOINTFIVE from 2018.
Coming into TWOPOINTFIVE, Aminé released one promotional single titled “Charmander” on Oct. 25. This track was one of the most ambitious releases in his entire career, mixing dance and hyper-pop elements with his slick-tongued rapping throughout the track.
Aminé has made a habit of separating his studio albums with mixtape releases. ONEPOINTFIVE came one year and one month after his breakout debut album Good for You in July 2017, and was followed by Limbo almost exactly a year later.
ONEPOINTFIVE saw Aminé at his most composed and laid-back, establishing a contemplative atmosphere, with features from Gunna, Rico Nasty and G Herbo, that he built on with his next studio album. Perhaps, the adventurous elements he explores in TWOPOINTFIVE will inspire the approach to his next studio album.
Either way, it is exciting to see such a talented and versatile voice return to releasing music. Aminé consistently provides a fresh view and unmatched charisma within his sound, and we should expect no different with his new work.
