Here's The Friday Music The Streets Are Talking About
By: Kayla Pasacreta
As if it being the Friday before Christmas wasn't already enough to be excited about, we've also been blessed with some fire new music, kids.
- "Huncho Jack, Jack Huncho" by Travis Scott and Quavo
This loooong awaited collaboration between Travis Scott and Migos' Quavo is finally here and available on Spotify, Tidal, and Apple Music. Collab albums have been poppin' lately, as we've seen with "Super Slimey", a duo album featuring Future and Young Thug, and "Without Warning", a duo album from Migos' Offset and 21 Savage.
Does "Huncho Jack, Jack Huncho" bump or nah?
The 13-track album has the classic sounds that make Travis Scott and Quavo the rappers they are. You get hella ad-libs, nasty beats, and some cocky flow. There are definitely some bops, but the energy doesn't top their first collab song "Oh My Dis Side".
Our top bops from the album: "Modern Slavery", "Huncho Jack", "Saint", "Eye 2 Eye", and "Dubai Sh**t" featuring Offset
- "Bartier Cardi", Cardi B featuring 21 Savage
Biiiiiitccchhhh! This is the energy "Bartier Cardi" brings for all of us wannabe-gangster-gals. "Bartier Cardi" is Cardi's follow up song to "Bodak Yellow", and it does not disappoint. The cockiness is real, and listening to the song will make you feel like one bad b***h. Cardi mentions her man twice in the chorus, but I ain't even mad. The bars ain't nothing special, but the cocky lyrics will surely get you hype.
Cardi B easily carries "Bartier Cardi", and the song doesn't need 21 Savage's monotone verse. It still cranks, though. Go Cardi!
- "El Gato, the Human Glacier Album" by Gucci Mane
Coming just 2 months after the release of "Mr. Davis", Mr. Wop delivers an 11-track, 31 minute album that stays true to his sound. The tape has no features (heard you, Gucci). Overall, the album is nothing too exciting or different from most of songs. However, Gucci succeeds in telling a story through his work and delivering on his trademark eerie-trap beats.
Our top bops: "Rich Ass Junkie", "Dickriders", and "Southside & Gucci".
What music are you boppin' to on this fine Friday?
