Multiplatinum Memphis rapper and CMG mogul Yo Gotti unleashes his brand new album, I Still Am [CMG/Epic Records], in stores and at all digital retailers today.

Get it at this link. Upon going live at midnight, the record catapulted to the Top 11 of the iTunes Overall Top Albums Chart and Top 3 of the Top Hip-Hop/Rap Albums Chart where it continues to hold strong.

This past week has been momentous for Gotti. Just last night, he hosted an exclusive Tidal screening for his documentary I Still Am and listening party in New York City. Tastemakers, fellow artists, and celebrities gathered for the event to watch this revealing powerhouse film unfold and hear the record for the very first time. Check out the documentary HERE In addition, he guested on The Breakfast Club for a detailed interview about everything in his world and so much more.

I Still Am sees Gotti reach a new level. Firmly carving out his place amongst rap’s elite, he delivers his most potent, profound, and powerful body of work to date. Among its stacked tracklisting, the platinum-certified smash “Rake It Up” [feat. Nicki Minaj] introduced this collection followed by “Juice”—which saw him re-team with his “Down In The DM” collaborator producer Ben Billions for another banger. He practically burns through the speaker on the one-two opening punch of “Betrayal” and “Back Gate. “Save It For Me” [feat. Chris Brown Meek Mill] remains an event in and of itself, and “One on One” [feat. Meek Mill & YFN Lucci] unites a trio of the game’s hottest rappers. “Don’t Wanna Go Back” might be his most introspective cut yet, while “Around the World” closes out the record with a bang. The full tracklisting can be found below.

Simultaneously, Gotti has risen through the ranks as a bona fide cultural force in his own right. He just inked an exclusive deal with Puma where he will work with the brand on several programs and exciting product collaborations, many of which will be inspired by styles that have been not only iconic to Puma, but to Yo Gotti himself.

In addition, he has joined forces with Monster products to bring better sound and an elevated listening experience to music fans everywhere. As part of Monster’s alliance with the multi-platinum superstar, Yo Gotti will be creating “The Sound of Yo Gotti,” including a special VIP website that will highlight specially designated Monster products chosen by Yo Gotti to bring fans new ways to experience the very best audio quality possible.

Expect him everywhere in 2018 as he rightfully accepts the crown.

After quietly and passionately grinding for over 15 years, Yo Gotti’s hustle paid off big time in 2016. His fifth full-length album, The Art of Hustle [CMG/Epic Records], captured #4 on the Billboard Top 200, marking his highest chart bow yet. It spawned the platinum-selling smash “Down In The DM,” which not only dominated radio, but it even entered the modern lexicon as a popular phrase! In between TV performances and appearances on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel LIVE!The Real, and BET, he played to sold out crowds every night on The Endless Summer Tour with G-EazyLogic, and YG all summer long. He capped the year off with the explosive White Friday. 2017 saw him light up the road with Meek Mill and turn up with another smash “Rake It Up” [feat. Nicki Minaj].

[ALBUM REVIEW] “85 To Africa” to Hit! Jidenna’s (@Jidenna)Whole Album is a MOOD!

It has been awhile since the “Classic Man, Jidenna, delivered us new music, but his new, sophomore album, 85 To Africa, was well worth the weight! Jidenna has shed the pomade, suits, cane, and casket fresh vests in change for African print attire, braids, and an “awokeness” that the culture is in need of.
Grade: A+

The album is one of this artist truly exploring and learning about himself by reconnecting to his African roots, speaking his mind unadulterated, and celebrating his life and those who love and celebrate him. This album is an ode to the old school link up with strong sentiments of community, real self-actualization, and not to mention an earthiness we cannot help but find appealing. Jidenna is a true jewel to the world of rap and hip-hop, and 85 To Africa, is a direct road map to his soul. Kudos, Jidenna, kudos!

Let’s hear it for good times and even greater music! Yes, the indie world is buzzing in part thanks to one rising star and dynamic artists, MISStress! MISStress has been in the Atlanta music scene for awhile making a name for herself with catchy singles, hardcore lyrics, and a desire for greatness matched by few other artists–independent or mainstream! Now The Muses have heard us and they are back with new music and a hot, new album in Missundastood!

MISStress sent over two of her newest tracks, Panties On The Floor and What You Gone Do to us and we have to admit they have been in circulation on our phones and in our cars throughout the day. Everthing just flows when it comes to the songs, giving us a Trina meets City Girls kind of vibe. MISStress stands out, however, in being a non-gender confirming artist, living their truth. However, even though they do not identify as transgender, they support and love all members of the LGBT family. “I’ve been doing music for about six years now and it is as much a part of my life as anything else. This album is one a lot of people can relate to because we have all in some way, fashion, or form been misunderstood or misjudged…I want people to continue getting to know the real me through my music and just know there’s nothing any of us can do if we put our minds to it.”

Missundastood is lined with a number of bops, and we definitely have a wider scope of who MISStress is and how they operate. You cannot help but admire someone who is so brave, beautiful, and most unapologetic. Courage is always a good look, and they wear it well!

You can stream Missundastood on all music streaming platforms and datpiff.com as well! Happy Listening!

“Ghosted,” as defined by Psychology Today, “is having someone that you believe cares about you, whether it be a friend or someone you are dating, disappear from contact without any explanation at all.”  This is a term many people, especially millennials know all too well. In fact, if you watched the third season of HBO’s Insecure, the series’ protagonist, Issa [Rae], was ghosted on by Nathan (Kendrick Sampson) the first guy she was ready to be in a relationship with. Chris’s Ghosted definitely touches on the sorrow and confusion that comes from left in the wind.

Check out the lyrics below:

We have to say we love this song! Unfortunately, after being ghosted on a few times it is all too relatable. The confusion, angst, sorrow, pain…it’s all there. This should definitely be on some millennial show. Maybe BET’s new hit, Boomerang? Chris has confirmed he does have a full fledged album coming soon. If his other tracks are as moving as this one we will be sure to listen and have some Kleenex on hand. Congrats Chris!

What do you all think of Chris June’s new single? Sound off in the comments’ section below!
