The Diplomats, PnB Rock, Boosie BadAzz and More: New Projects This Week
There are a few things to be thankful for this week: family, love, good food and, of course, new music. This week’s lineup of fresh releases includes projects from New York legends The Diplomats, former XXL Freshman PnB Rock, soul brother Boosie BadAzz, Memphis' Key Glock and the return of Statik Selektah and Termanology.
The long-awaited return of The Diplomats has finally arrived with Diplomatic Ties. It’s been almost 15 years since the Harlem crew comprised of members Cam’ron, Jim Jones, Juelz Santana and Freekey Zekey last released an official project. Now they are back with the help of Belly, Tory Lanez and others. To celebrate the new LP, Dipset hosted a bus tour, which took passengers through the group's old stomping grounds and included drinks and chopped cheeses.
While fans wait for PnB Rock's album Trap Star Turnt Pop Star, the Philly artist came with an appetizer via the new EP The Throwaways, which features Tee Grizzley, Lil Durk, Asian Doll and more.
A year after channeling his inner Tupac Shakur, Boosie BadAzz is ready to tap into his soulful side. Earlier this week, the BooPac rapper revealed that his latest effort—titled, Boosie Blues Café—would be out Thanksgiving day (Nov. 22). Inspired by Snoop Dogg’s recent experimentation with gospel music (Bible of Love), Boosie’s blues album is a departure from the gritty street tales that have made him an underground king.
Statik and Term reunited for their third joint album Still 1982. Key Glock continues to prove why he is a force in Tennessee with the new mixtape Glockoma.
Take a break from your second or third helping of Thanksgiving leftovers and check out these new projects below.
