Stay in the mix of what’s new every week with Our Generation Music’s “Platinum Picks” from New Music Friday.
Travis Scott — “UTOPIA”
Post Malone — “Austin”
Post Malone’s come to terms with himself and his vices — evident on his self-titled LP AUSTIN. Dissecting the throes of fame and fatherhood, among more cheerful, sonic exposés of his life behind closed doors, AUSTIN is unapologetically Posty — who finds solace pouring a glass of whiskey in the woods with a guitar strapped at his side. This is AUSTIN at his core, and the music reflects it.
Denzel Curry — “BLOOD ON MY NIKEZ”
Trippie Redd — “Last Days”
ICYTWAT — “FINAL BOSS”
A Final Boss in his own right, the Chicago trendsetter’s new project is a blazing yet ethereal experience packed into just 12 tracks.
TyFontaine — “YUHEAME”
TyFontaine needs no introduction at this point. In the interim of finishing Ascension 2, the DMV hitmaker shared another holdover project, YUHEAME, featuring SJR, Joony and other East Coast talent.
BIA — “REALLY HER”
BIA is REALLY HER. Perhaps the most underrated and platetable female emcee n the game, let her explain why she means “BIG BUSINESS” if it wasn’t clear from the jump.
D2X — “Faith”
Ahead of his upcoming sophomore album ,Chicago rapper D2X is keeping “FAITH” in a huge way. With larger-than-life bars and a hungry, bar-heavy persona, D2X is a name you’ll be hearing for quite some time.
Roy Woods — “Mixed Emotions”
As the OVO Sound’s prodigy’s first album in six years, Mixed Emotions celebrates the full-length return of Roy Woods. Talented as ever, Woods’ new album, which is executive produced by Drake, is an evolution in all aspects, as Roy juggles the throes of fame, fatherhood and keeping his vision clear-eyed throughout the 17-track biopic.
