It's surprisingly a big week for hip-hop. Aside from Kendrick Lamar's long-awaited diss track aimed at Drake, there are also some equally as anticipated projects. This week an enigmatic R&B singer finally stamps his arrival, a rap veteran tackles the blues, a Brooklyn-based rhymer delivers another street-edged project and more.

4batz Drops Debut EP U made me a st4r

After exploding in popularity off three songs, "act i: stickerz," "act ii: date @ 8" and "act iii: on god? (she like)," elusive R&B singer 4batz has finally dropped his debut EP, U made me a st4r. The 10-track EP, released via Gamma, includes several of his previously released tracks, plus a collaboration with Ye on the remix to "act iii: on god? (she like)." 4batz was spotted linking up with Ye in the studio in April. Surprisingly, the Drake remix to "act ii," is not on the project. While not that much is known about the Texas artist, U made me a st4r officially announces the soft-spoken singer's arrival and may dispel some of the industry plant speculation.
