It's the same day, just a different week. The countless number of singles dropping and projects announced throughout the week are just the start of the weekend so sit back and enjoy it all, something music fans cherish. Let's check out the albums that are set to release today. 

Young Thug- Slim Language 2: With a style and voice that's uniquely his, Thugger has been one of the most beloved and consistent artists over the past five years—dropping a whopping eleven projects in five years, with his lastest being a collab mixtape with Chris Brown titled Slim & B. While Slime Language 2 is not a solo effort, the project does put a spotlight on artists such as Gunna, Lil Keed, and Lil Duke under his umbrella on YSL records. With the first installment featuring Lil Uzi Vert, Lil Baby, and Jacquees, fans can surely expect some big names to appear, considering after Thugger posted a clip that contains a Drake verse. Listen here.

Conway The Machine - La Maquina

Often overlooked in the powerhouse group Griselda, Conway has made it his mission to let the hip-hop world knows that he is one of the most prolific rappers in the game today. After releasing the bone-chilling EP If It Bleeds It Can Be Killed, two months later, the Griselda rapper is set to release his second full-length album after last year's well-revered freshman effort, From A God To A King. The project is lead by its new single 'Scatter Brain' with assistance from Ludacris and JID. Given his history of delivering us great bars with the flow of a mob boss, we can expect nothing less than from the New York spitter. Listen here.

Kenny Mason - Angelic Hoodrat Supercut

While technically Angelic Hoodrat came out last year, Kenny Mason's follow-up album expands on the idea of the duality of individuals conceptually but also musically with twelve new records. With Kenny using both rap and rock to convey his message. Unlike the original, which had no features, the Angelic Hoodrat Supercut comes with verses from the electric personality from Denzel Curry and the smooth yet powerful Freddie Gibbs. Listen here.
