Stay in the mix of what’s new every week with Our Generation Music’s “Platinum Picks” from New Music Friday.
Isaiah Rashad — “The House is Burning”
Logic — “Bobby Tarantino III”
Morray & Polo G — “Trenches (Remix)”
Dave East & Harry Fraud — “HOFFA”
Dave East and Harry Fraud are certainly a one-two punch, as East’s signature menacing bars perfectly mesh with Fraud’s sample-strong production on “HOFFA.” Recruiting the likes of Benny The Butcher, GHerbo and Curren$y, East puts forth his most cohesive project to date, tightly woven together by Fraud’s impeccable ear.
G-Eazy & EST GEE — “At Will”
G-Eazy’s versatility has always shined throughout his career, however, he leans back into his rap bag connecting with rising Louisville star EST Gee on “At Will.” This bar-heavy anthem features G-Eazy talking his talk, deterring from his recent pop-orientated sound to drop off a banger fit for any pregame.
“G is incredibly ecelectic and diverse,” his manager Matt Bauerschmidt said. “[At Will] is just straight bars, like right at your head kind of rapping. G and Gee got along great at the music video. It’s just a banger of a beat. Obviously, Boi-1da did his thing on this like always. We thought it’d be great in a sports context so the video has a lot of basketball imagery to it. People can work out to it, warm up to it — you can feel definitely yourself on this track and also feel like you’re getting sh*t done.”
Skepta — “All In”
UK legend Skepta maintains his presence as one of hip-hop’s premier drill lyricists, recruiting Kid Cudi, J Balvin and Teezee for his latest five-track EP, All In.
Young Dolph — “Paper Route Illuminati”
After announcing his retirement following his collab tape with Key Glock earlier this year, Young Dolph isn’t leaving anytime soon — dropping the hard-hitting Paper Route Illuminati with Paper Route Empire
Toosii & Fivio Foreign — “Spin Music”
North Carolina rapper Toosii quickly developed his sound over the last few years, as the 2021 XXL Freshman connects with drill specialist Fivio Foreign on their latest track “Spin Music.”
Scorey — “Guardian Angel”
While Polo G signee Scorey’s melodic mix of rock and rap continues to make waves, he trades in heavy metal for heavy bars over a bouncy piano beat — dropping the fourth single off his upcoming EP “Guardian Angel.”
Yung Fazo & SoFaygo — “Adding”
The underground star Yung Fazo secures one of the hottest newcomers of 2021 in SoFaygo on their joint cut “Adding.” Officially releasing the popular song that’s taken Tik-Tok by storm, Fazo and Faygo are a can’t miss duo amid the new wave’s ascension into the mainstream.
Stunna Gambino — “ZAZA”
While NYC native Stunna Gambino’s ascension as of late has been aided by singles in “Top Opp Vulture” and “NOT SOBER” with Polo G and The Kid LAROI, Gambino is in his element on “ZAZA,” spitting high-pitched melodic flows that can catch any ear. Simply put, don’t sleep on Gambino.
Maxo Kream — “Local Joker ”
Silk Sonic — “Skate ”
Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak are back with another summertime, jazzy jam “Skate.” Complete with live drums and horns, Mars and .Paak continue to assert their dominance as some of music’s most talented artists — further proving that two superstars are always better than one. Their highly-anticipated self-titled album, however, has yet to be announced for release.
Jacquees & Future — “Not Jus Anybody ”
Over sultry piano keys and a laid-back instrumental, Jacquees and R&B Future return for their vibe-filled cut “Not Jus Anybody.”
