Takeoff, BlocBoy JB, Jay Rock and More: Bangers This Week
Halloween just passed; a fun time was had by all, but it's time to get back to rap. As always there were new jams left and right, high and low, but XXL keeps them organized in one place for you. A lot of your favorite artists showed up, too.
This is quite a big week for Takeoff, one-third of Migos. His debut solo album, The Last Rocket, finally dropped today and the 12-track project is low on features, keeping the focus on Takeoff. The track "Vacation" is an early standout as the rapper brags about taking your girl all over the world. Yikes.
BlocBoy JB consistently drops new material, so he came through with a new project this week titled Don't Think That this week. The lead single from the mixtape is "Club Rock," a fun song that's reminiscent of some of his older work. He brags about his new jewelry and clothes and other trappings of rap fame. Also, "All my niggas robbin'/Bruce Wayne!" is just a funny punchline.
Jay Rock's latest work, The Big Redemption, is amongst the strongest albums this year. His lead single, "Win," has turned into an anthem of sorts; now it has a new remix featuring a hip-hop legend. Snoop Dogg adds a verse to the song and sounds as sharp as ever. The Doggfather knows a thing or two about winning.
