BALTIMORE, MD –
My work is cut out for me this weekend! We’ve got new music from Lil Uzi Vert, Jay Electronica, Big Freedia and more!
Also, yay to news that doesn’t include the word coronavirus.
Personally, I’m trying to get into the habit of really diving into music like I used to. I want to get to the point where I can just listen to new music all weekend. But, my time is spread just about everywhere.
Anyways, no more excuses. Here’s three names I’m going to dive into on this new music Friday:
Lil Uzi Vert’s gives deluxe Eternal Atake.
The name doesn’t vibe well with me and I’ve never said it aloud.
But, Uzi dropped a deluxe version of the hit album featuring Future, Young Thug, Gunna, and more. He dropped the original album last week and been teasing more music since. He shared the tracklist yesterday on Twitter.

Stream the anticipated album below. I’m going to save my listen until Monday morning.
Jay Electronica’s got something new.
The lyricist drops his first project on Roc Nation after years of
He calls this one A Written Testimony and it features Jay Z, Travis Scott, and The Dream. It’s 10 tracks wide but the anticipation spans as far as the eyes can see. Roc Nation and Electronica had planned to have exclusive listening parties in New York, Los Angeles, and New Orleans but they were cancelled due to coronavirus concerns.
The listening events were planned for yesterday, March 12th. However, stream the album below.
Big Freedia delivers EP.
Queen Diva has been working hard!
Freedia is favorite of mine because she’s unapologetically her. Also, she literally put New Orleans on her back whenever she takes stage. Love to see someone do it for their city.
Her 5-track EP is just a little taste of her NOLA soul. Just enough to remind us that she’s still here.
Honorable mentions will get love too.
I know Blueface, Jack Harlow, and others dropped today.
I don’t know how much of them I’ll be able to hear over the next few days. However, there is a lot of hype around Blueface and has been for quite some time. Ironically, his album is titled Find the Beat, something that he has seemed to struggle doing.
I think that’s why I’m dragging my feet on hearing the album. My introduction to him was his performance on ‘Thotiana’ where he didn’t appear to have any idea of rhythm. It kind of makes it difficult to want to hear more.
But, his album is out and ready for streams. I’ll be looking forward to what the internets have to say.
