Some promising new projects for your rap ears this week.

Up first, A$AP Ferg drops his new mixtape ‘Still Striving’ clearly giving a nod to last year’s successful ‘Always Strive and Prosper’. The tape features 14 tracks from the Trap Lord and has guest spots for Migos, Rocky, NAV and Cam’ron to name a few. Given it’s nod and as a follow-up to last year’s effort alone, this should be a dope listen for your rap ears this week week.

For that second recommendation, we cross the pond. UK DJ, Charlie Sloth, drops his debut album ‘The Plug’. Acting as a Mike Will.Made.it type overseer, the album features a plethora of the UK scene’s who’s who. Probably lacking the cream of UK rap talent, the line up is still good enough to make you listen and listen you should!!!

In the curious corner, Kodak Black releases ‘Project Baby 2’ – a follow-up to 2013’s ‘Project Baby’ less than a year after his big studio debut. One of the game’s controversial acts, his star is shining following that debut and this should be a good listen on that account.

Speaking of stars, Dave East’s is glowing brighter and brighter. With that glow, he drops his debut EP ‘Paranoia: A True Story’. One of Harlem’s up and comers promises to be good to your ears this week.
