Beneath the radar.
Aesop Rock – The Impossible Kid
On his seventh studio album, Aesop produced his own tracks that carry lyrics that revisits his childhood. His wordplay and abstract lyrics come to life in this very personal project, giving a glimpse of what’s really going on in his psyche.
Domo Genesis – Domo Genesis
Member of Odd Future’s collective, Genesis dropped his debut album earlier this year in March and showed that he’s been the group’s secret weapon all along. The album features Wiz Khalifa, Juicy J, Tyler, The Creator, Anderson .Paak, Mac Miller, JMSN, and more. The rapper performed his lead single, “Dapper,” on Jimmy Kimmel Live! with Anderson .Paak. The album peaked at No. 1 on the Top Heatseekers Albums chart.
NxWorries – Yes Lawd!
If there’s anyone who can look forward to the success that 2017 will bring, it’s Anderson .Paak. He’s a dope artist all around. Add producer Knxwledge and you’ve got the dynamic duo that is NxWorries. Pronounced, “No Worries,” their project has been heavily anticipated. After the release of their 2015 lead single, “Suede,” I knew these boys were something special.
“Suede” is also featured on “Yes Lawd!” which consists of 19 tracks. There are no features on the album and none are needed. Upon release, it peaked at No. 3 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, showing that the project was destined to do great.
