2 Chainz, Yo Gotti, Saba and More – New Projects This Week
Each week, the rap game proves why the genre is the best, bar none. Tonight there’s new music from some veterans from the south through Atlanta and Memphis, plus a new offering from an MC from Chicago.
2 Chainz, who last year said his new album would be his last trap record, has dropped out Dope does not sell. Chainz teamed up with Moneybagg Yo, Lil Baby, Roddy Ricch, Lil Durk, YoungBoy Never Broke Again and more on the LP. The offer, which was greeted with a pop-up, comes a day after Chainz hit the road on the Legendz of the Streets Tour which kicked off Feb. 3 in Columbus, Georgia, with Jeezy, Gucci Mane, Rick Ross and many others. .
Yo Gotti stepped in with a new double album, CM10: Free play (side A) and CM10: Free Game (B-side). Last month, the CMG manager shared via Twitter that this would be his last outing, writing, “I’m off to Finish this SH!T like I started!!! No regrets, standing on business and principle. knowing we took the highest risk for the best outcome. To the streets, grappling, fans and consumers, I am ALWAYS GRATEFUL 🙏🏾 #CM10 February 4 – THIS LAST 1.” The final album features guest appearances from artists Gotti Moneybagg Yo, 42 Dugg, EST Gee and more.
Saba also drops her own lyrical candor with few good things. Hours before the new project was due to arrive, Saba shared some thoughts via social media, one of which read, “Now obviously I’m known for diving into some pretty sensitive topics. And I’d like it to be covered. That means the last thing I want is to read a stupid headline about how SABA’S TRAUMA IS THE FOCAL POINT OF THE NEW ALBUM???The latest features of Saba G Herbo,6lack , Smino and more.
