Stay in the mix of what’s new every week with Our Generation Music’s Top 10 “Platinum Picks” from New Music Friday.
Young Thug — “BUSINESS IS BUSINESS”
Juice WRLD & Cordae — “Doomsday”
DJ Scheme & Danny Towers — “Safe House”
Tearing up the scene with their no-nonsense trap tracks, Danny Towers and DJ Scheme are Florida to the bone. Connecting for their first-ever joint album, the two close collaborators release Safe House. The 14-track project expands upon the underground sound that Scheme and Towers helped foster, combining Towers’ gritty raps with a diverse complement of instrumentals. Welcoming guest spots from Babyface Ray (on single “Trap Baby”), and Florida rap heavy-hitters like Denzel Curry, Robb Bank$, Trapland Pat, and Loe Shimmy, Safe House displays Danny’s abilities to the fullest showcasing his technique to adapt to any beat like a chameleon.
Lil Tjay — “June 22nd”
The lead single off his upcoming third album, 222, the New York rapper continues to thank God above all for what he’s accomplished. On the one-year anniversary of his near-death shooting, Lil Tjay shared “June 22nd” — an ominous taste of the reality he resides in. Airlifted following his tragic shooting incident last year, Tjay faces the fears that have circled his head for quite some time. ‘222’ — an angel number for the “time has come for you to be more self-reflective, focused on the duality of situations.”
Rich Amiri — “PUNT!”
Asserting his heartthrob status, Boston native Rich Amiri returns to kick off his city boy summer with “Punt.” Anchored by a celestial synth-like instrumental by Devstacks and JayXXL, the track continues Rich’s recent streak of diverse beat selection, allowing him to demonstrate the full potential of his vocal instrument. On “Punt,” Rich takes full advantage of that creative mindset, adopting a flow that juxtaposes his full-bodied baritone voice with equally smooth high-pitched melodies.
Dominic Fike — “Mama’s Boy”
E The Profit — “ETP”
King Von — “Robberies”
Key Glock — “GLOCKOMA 2 (DLX)”
Since the February release of Glockoma 2, which debuted at No. 13 on the Billboard 200, Key Glock has yet to take his foot off the gas. Today, the Memphis artist adds eight new tracks to the album, sharing Glockoma 2 (Deluxe). With brand new production from Paper Route Empire’s own Bandplay, Memphis hitmaker Tay Keith, and more, Glockoma 2 (Deluxe) is home to Glock’s recent flex-heavy video single, “Presidential Rolex,” the hair-raising opening track, “Sucker Free,” the motivational “MaMa Said,” and tribute to his mentor Young Dolph “Penny.”
