The weather is breaking and rappers from different coasts are delivering new music to help warm up the weekend.
California’s own YG and Mozzy have teamed up for their effort, Kommunity Service. The album, which has a cover art that pays homage to the late DMX and his 1998 film, Belly, with Nas, features appearances from G Herbo, Young M.A, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Tyga, Ty Dolla $ign and Blxst, who appears on “Perfect Timing,” the first single from the LP. According to YG, the effort is “Strictly for the streets.” As for Mozzy, the Sacramento, Calif.-bred rhymer said he and YG are “just doing our Kommunity Service. West Coast been closed so it’s time to turn it back up.”
Detroit native 42 Dugg also drops his debut album, Free Dem Boyz. As many already know, the rising rapper partnered up with former 2019 XXL Freshman Roddy Ricch for “4 Da Gang,” a uptempo joint that samples rock band Scorpions’ 1982 single, “No One Like You.” The effort also features the cut “Maybach” with Future, which began trending on social media due to the presumed mention of Hendrixx’s ex-girlfriend, Lori Harvey. Other guest appearances include former 2020 XXL Freshman Fivio Foreign, Rowdy Rebel and 4 Pockets Full Inc. artist Rylo Rodriguez.
Young Nudy served up some heat earlier this week, too. On Tuesday (May 18), the East Atlanta-born rapper dropped his new project, DR. EV4L. The release has bars from 21 Savage, G Herbo and Lil Uzi Vert. This is also Nudy’s first offering since his 2020 effort, Anyways. To accompany the arrival of the project, Young Nudy also launched an NFTs collection, comprised of one-of-a-kind album artwork, VIP tickets and unseen Polaroid images signed by the rapper himself.
