5 New Albums You Need to Hear This Week


Metro Boomin — Heroes & Villains

Metro Boomin – HEROES & VILLAINS (Album)

Super producer Metro Boomin helped define the sound of Atlanta hip-hop in the 2010s.  In 2018, he released his debut album NOT ALL HEROES WEAR CAPES, after a booming year of collab tapes with some of the most important figures in rap—namely, 21 Savage. Heroes & Villains is the second installment in the “Heroes” saga, and massively avoids the dreaded sophomore slump in favor of fiery intensity. Future, Travis Scott, Young Nudy, and more provide guest features.


Mavin Records — Chapter X

Mavins – Chapter X (Album)

Home to Ayra Starr, Rema and others, the roster at indie Nigerian label Mavin Records brims with talent. Founded by the legendary Don Jazzy, Mavin is now in its 10th and most fruitful year of operation, celebrating their success with compilation album Chapter X. The record is a victory lap for the team, and a sign of new beginnings. Less than five years ago, their COO was refused meetings at labels, and now Mavin Records is running charts across the globe. The label incubated and nurtures talent, and Chapter X plays like a love letter to the fans who always knew.


Babyface Ray — MOB

Babyface Ray – MOB (Album)

Detroit’s Babyface Ray is riding a new wave of success in 2022. After breaking out in late 2020, the last two years have seen Ray and his fellow Detroit spitters get nationwide flowers and respect en masse. A Billboard cover in October of this year cemented the current rap scene from his city as the rap mecca of the year. And it’s true, there are copycats of Babyface Ray’s lax and earthy style, but there is only one originator. On MOB, Babyface Ray’s sinister sound is at its most organic, shedding some of the polish of previous records in favor of the rough-hewn sound that made him pop.


brakence — hypochondriac

brakence – hypochondriac (Album)

Listening to brakence’s hypochondriac, you’re left with the sense the alt-pop artist is trying to reclaim his humanity. Following the success of punk2 in 2020, brakence enjoyed a steady rise online that, as he sings about on this new album, led to the fetishization of his personality. Shouts of “I just wanna be dead” and an electronic guide that tells listeners brakence is on the verge of collapse make this album a tough but necessary listen. The music is solid, the production inventive, but the real meat comes by way of the questions we’re meant to ask about fame and identity.


Tiggs Da Author — MOREFIRE 2

Tiggs Da Author — MORE FIRE 2 (Album)

London-raised Tiggs Da Author blends jazz, rap, and elements of his Tanzanian heritage to make himself a fixture in the rising UK hip-hop scene. New mixtape MOREFIRE 2 thrives off the spirit of collaboration. With features from Potter Payper, RIMON, Moliy, Sainte, and many more, the tape shows off Tiggs’ malleable but distinct style. As each guest gets their turn on the mic, listeners never forget whose project they’re listening to…
