5.16 – That New New

It’s the middle of May and 2016 has already solidified itself as a massive year for new music. Huge releases left and right as the weeks go by and this last week was really no different. Chance The Rapper most likely won the week with the unveiling of his third mixtape “Coloring Book”. The gospel impulse is strong throughout and “Summer Friends” is a favorite on the release that has some Paul Simon “Graceland” vibes going on as well. Post Malone dropped a new mixtape as well and “Money Made Me Do It” with 2 Chainz is an early standout. Father Dude officially released the first single from his upcoming debut EP and “Eyes On You” feels like an instant smash on the first listen. Finally, Kamaiyah dropped her first song since her debut mixtape from a couple months ago and she just stays on fire.
