Another week is coming to a close, which means we got you covered on all the new music released throughout the week.

J. Cole - The Offseason
How does one who reaches heights few in his profession only dream of soaring upon, maintain the desire creatively to be great? That's the question Cole has been chasing an answer to. From his interview with SLAM to his documentary Applying Pressure, the theme of the album rollout centered around the idea of improvement and escaping comfort. With his sixth studio album, fans will be the deciding factor if all the work Cole put forth to create this project matches the hungry and quality that made him a star. 

Kodak - Haitian Boy Kodak
In his first album post his prison release, Haitian Boy Kodak is the South Florida rapper celebrating his roots. His previous release, Bill Israel, dropped while he was in prison and topped at 42 on the Billboard top 200. The lack of a proper rollout impacted the album. Still, with releasing this album a week before Haitian flag day, momentum was built for a strong debut. 

21 Savage & Slaughter Gang - Spiral
Having the opportunity to executive produce a film is something most acts wouldn't dare to pass on. The lead single "Sprial" is horrifying imagery, perfectly aligning with 21's style of music. The soundtrack will be released alongside the film The Spiral: From The Book Of Saw and will feature Gunna, Young Thug, and Young Nudy. 

Jorja Smith - Be Right Back

Euro Gotit - 4REIGN 4EVER
Cochise- Benbow
