The theme this week is collaboration. This theme fell in my lap. We got three great collaborations today. One of the biggest in rap, Future, just released an album with well-known Young Thug. And we have the up and coming duo Earthgang. The popular british duo, Krept and Konan, also released a new album today. Lastly, we got Young Dro. He’s basically two people in one since he can keep up with the Xanax and rap at the same time. Should be impossible.
Earthgang is practically new on the larger scene. They just arrived and we’ll see how far they’ll manage to go. They recenly signed to J Coles label Dreamville Records which might give a boost.
Future and Young Thug has worked together in the past. Both have a lot of interesting collaborations supposedly upcoming; a collaboration album with Migos, one with Kanye, another with Gucci Mane. Which – if any – will see the light of day is an answer for the future.
Krept and Konan is back with a follow up album 7 Days, to their recenly released album 7 Nights. On previous album they brought some american features, while on this one they bring some of the key rappers from the UK scene: Skepta, Stormzy and rising star J HUS (that was featured here recently.
Young Dro is a legend in the rap scene, just based of the single FDB. He’s been working a lot with T.I and his label this past year and is now releasing singles for what might be an upcoming album.
