My apology for the late post but we are down at RTX Austin for some great coverage. Tune in later for a full recap of the event.  For now, let me feed you with the best tunes of the week.

This week I just want to highlight, in my opinion, one of the best albums of the year easily. That’s saying something since we have a had a ton of great gems, especially in the Hip-Hop community, drop this year.  Last night Travis Scott dropped the highly anticipated ASTROWORLD. With a name like that you’d better have a fire album.  A fire album indeed.  This album, from top to bottom, was clean, crisp, hype, heat.  The production was fantastic and the features were on point.  Being from Texas, I really dig the Houston sound and flow of some of the tracks. Travis Scott is a spirited native of HTX as you can often catch him at the Astros, Texans, and Rockets games.  Please have a listen and see what I am, and the rest of the internet is hype about.

Other notables today include an album that I ,myself, personally have been hyped about but is flying under the radar courtesy of Mr. Scott is Mac Miller – Swimming.  I haven’t given it 3 full listens like I have ASTROWORLD but I can tell it, too, is some real Hip-Hop.  More notables to listen to are H.E.R ft. Bryson Tiller, Nicky Jam, Cuco, Bazzi, and Miguel all dropped some new jams.  Stay tuned for more as I go in depth on XXXTentacion and Shiloh.
