A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie- Artist

Hot Albums 11 May 17 0

An MC perfectly styled for the age of Future and Desiigner, Bronx rapper A Boogie wit da Hoodie hit the scene in 2016 with a funkier version of trap rap. Born Artist Dubose in Highbridge, the Bronx native spent some time in Florida before returning home and taking his music seriously. That was 2015; then in early 2016 he uploaded his first tracks to the Net. In March he dropped his debut mixtape, Artist, while April saw him drop “Bag on Me” featuring Don Q. With a Meek Mill and DJ Khaled co-sign soon after, and the Highbridge the Label mixtape released in May, the Atlantic label signed a deal with Highbridge and issued the singles “Bando” and “My S**t” in July. EP TBA followed in October. ~ David Jeffries

21 Savage- Savage Mode

Hot Albums 11 May 17 0

Rugged Atlanta rap gets a new dynamic duo on a murky, minimal EP that brings out the best in its precocious players. For producer Metro Boomin—in-demand architect of Drake and Future’s irrepressible “Jumpman”—it’s a chance to darken his palette with foreboding bells (“No Heart”) and muffled 808s (“Feel It”). And then there’s 21 Savage: dabbling with playful, raspy boasts (“Mad High”) while never losing the hard-edged authenticity of a true trap king.
