Ty Dolla Sign, Joyner Lucas, Junglepussy and More: New Projects This Week
It's Friday (Oct. 23), so not only is it the "freakin' weekend," but it's that time of the week where your favorite rappers deliver new projects. This week, there's some rap-influenced R&B dropping as well for your streaming pleasure.
Ty Dolla $ign unleashes his third studio album, Featuring Ty Dolla $ign. The California-bred rapper-singer leans all the way into the running convo that Ty is literally featured on everyone's songs. He enlists Kanye West, Anderson .Paak, Quavo, Lil Durk, Roddy Ricch, Mustard, Future, Young Thug, Gunna and more to help bring the effort to life. The 25-track LP, which was announced earlier this month with the initial title Dream House, follows the Atlantic Records artist's most recent collaboration with SZA, "Hit Different." Ty Dolla delivers impeccable bops on the album and teased a few tracks like "Be Yourself" and "Expensive" featuring Nicki Minaj, which were released prior to the album's arrival.
To carry fans a little bit deeper into spooky season, Junglepussy returns with JP4. The latest studio album is a follow-up to the 28-year-old rhymer's JP3 album, which debuted in 2018. Gangsta Boo and Ian Isiah make appearances on this new LP. Along with those guest appearances, the Brooklyn rapper's previously released tracks "Main Attraction" and "Arugula" also appear on the record.
And after a lengthy wait, Joyner Lucas drops off his EP, Evolution. The 13-track project features guest vocals from Ashanti, as well as bars from Rick Ross, The Game and more. Joyner was originally slated to deliver the project earlier this month, but postponed its release to ensure fans that he is delivering a classic and his effort doesn't disappoint. This is the rapper's first extended play and follows the release of his ADHD album, which came out back in March.
