Today Lil Uzi Vert released his highly anticipated new album Luv is Rage 2, an hour-long collection of oppressive and heavy pop trap. At certain points, Pharrell and The Weeknd join Uzi in staring into the abyss. Tracks like “The Way Life Goes” and “Neon Guts” (the Pharrell collab) definitely make my ears perk, especially the latter, but nothing quite comes close to the astonishing smash single and LP closer “XO Tour Llif3”. It’s all worth a listen though.
Action Bronson also released a highly anticipated LP, his Blue Chips 7000, the sequel to Blue Chips and Blue Chips 2, which came out in 2013 and 2014, respectively. Watch out for the showstopper in the track 8 spot, “TANK”. All-caps necessary.
