Here’s this weeks’ rundown of new announcements and new music from some of your favorite artists in the game.
$NOT – Ethereal
$NOT quietly announced the release date for his new album, Ethereal. Today, the often misunderstood artist cleared out his Instagram account to share the artwork for his upcoming project with supporters. To their credit, fans have been waiting over a year for $NOT’s return to music, so this news was long overdue. Ethereal will be released on Friday, February 11th via 300 Entertainment and is rumored to have featured verses from the likes of A$AP Rocky, Joey Bada$$, Juicy J, Kevin Abstract, Teddi Jones, and Trippie Redd.
Felly – Fresh Water
Felly takes a trip to the Garden of Eden in his new music video for “Fresh Water.” The cinematic visual examines the beginning of time, tracing back to the origin of human struggle and the wonders of salvation. Although it’s slightly occult-ish, Felly does a phenomenal job with displaying religious imagery in a way that’s balanced and open to interpretation. He’s fresh off a new album (Young Fel 2) and documentary (“WAVES”), giving fans an in-depth look into his multidimensional story. And now, Felly is gearing up to take his talents on the road, kicking off the Rush of the World Tour next month.
Cordae – Chronicles (feat. H.E.R. and Lil Durk)
Cordae manages to fall in love while on the clock. In the music video for “Chronicles” featuring H.E.R. and Lil Durk, the young MC finds himself going through the motions of a romantic relationship, trying to discern between love and lust. Throughout the song, Cordae admits that he doesn’t have time to waste in hopes of finding a common ground with his work wife. The Maryland-hailing rapper just released his sophomore project From a Birds Eye View, further separating the Hi-Level CEO from your average chart-topping rapper: he’s just built different.
Lil Tati – Came Up (feat. CJ)
Lil Tati returns with a new music video for his standout track “Came Up” featuring CJ. In the video, Tati revels in his newfound fame with a smile, comfortably enjoying life from the back of a Rolls Royce. The drill-inspired record pays homage to Tati’s success story, accompanied by CJ’s gruff undertone to help amplify the song’s boss-up mentality. A few baddies and one Fredo Bang cameo really helped bring this song to life, accentuating that rapper lifestyle where virtually anything is bound to happen: you just have to stay down until you come up. With his debut album NiNET33N in pocket, it’s exciting to see what else the young star has to offer.
