Aight, so there’s a new season of everything coming: new tv series, new seasons of old tv series, new albums from old artists, new albums from new artists–everything new. And we’re here ready to digest it all. First up is a new Flacko season with A$ap Rocky releasing new videos and new tracks for his upcoming album. The quality has been so-so up til’ this point but his twist of Moby’s old hit is showing that Flack quality.
Thanks for wanting to hear something you (perhaps) hadn’t heard til’ now. Let’s go!

I wrote about Rich Homie the other newsletter. His new album is making waves and I’ve kept on listening to it. A lot of good tracks and verses, with this golden track that I just couldn’t not feature. Great verses and smooth chorus:
I lost my freedom and grandma the same year //
I got back out, made a million the same year //
My record like that gun, boy that pistol clean //
Can’t mix feelings wit yo business, ain’t no in between //
Listen to Same Year.
Oh me, oh my. This is the hardest going track I’ve featured on Franklins yet. All-in Denzel shows why he’s got the energy and ambition to reach the top.
Pockets to big they sumo is a cheap line but works.
Listen to Sumo.
Can’t all be all-in-bangers – this is another type of all-in track where Jay Prince shows off the smoothest type of hip hop combined with inspirational flow. Perfect for the weekend with this feel-good hype.
Listen to In The Morning.
Let’s take it down a notch. Saba has been around for a while but haven’t ”blown up”, yet. Grown up in rowdy Chicago but still doesn’t produce/rap like the Chicago drill scene. He’s leaning closer to the Chance The Rapper sound (who’s featured).
Saba has great potential as a musician and producer and this new project of his shows steps towards that perfect sound.
Listen to LOGOUT.
