Check out RnBxHipHop’s hottest projects from the month of November below.
1. Common- Black America Again– November 4
Black America Again is the 11th studio album from Chicago rapper Common. The politically charged, soulful project tackles a plethora of issues currently plaguing the nation, including the recent rash of shooting deaths at the hands of police, as well as the continued racial inequity within the United States. The album features production handled in large by Karriem Riggins with features from artists BJ The Chicago Kid, John Legend, Bilal and more. “Black America Again,” featuring Stevie Wonder, “Love Star,” “Pyramids,” and “Letter to the Free,” are all standouts on this project.
2. A Tribe Called Quest- We Got It From Here…Thank You 4 Your Service– November 11
We Got It From Here… Thank You 4 Your Service is the first album to be released from the tribe since their 1998 album The Love Movement, which preceded the disbandment of the group. However, the classic group would then go on to put differences aside and tour together before the recording of this final project from the collective. Recently deceased tribe member Phife Dawg was able to make his contributions to the album before his unfortunate death. The album does not disappoint, as it features elements of the group’s jazz/ funk infusion with a a touch of a more modern sound. The album features member Q-Tip handling much of the production along with guest appearances from regular tribe collaborators such as Consequence and Busta Rhymes. This release is a great listen throughout, but “Solid Wall of Sound,” “Enough,” “The Killing Season,”and “Conrad Tokyo” are all highlights on this project.
3. G Herbo- Strictly 4 My Fans– November 24
Chicago-bred lyricist G Herbo gave fans another dose of his vivid street tales with his latest mixtape Strictly 4 My Fans. The project follows his 2015 release Ballin Like Im Kobe and serves as a bit of an appetizer for the release of the MC’s highly anticipated debut album Humble Beast. The 11-track project features production from frequent Future collaborator Southside among many others, and a not so surprising feature from Herbo’s Chi-town brethren and partner in crime Lil Bibby on the track “Tired.” This song is one of the standouts on the project along with tracks “Pull Up,” “Eastside Story,” and “Jay-Z(Outro).” G Herbo’s impending debut album Humble Beast is yet to have a release date.
December is looking to be a good one, so stay tuned for our next edition of Heaters Of The Month.
