This week in music:

YSIV — Logic

No matter the musical alter-ego he assumes, Logic just keeps Logic-ing. But this time around, his illustrious guests — namely,  the motherfucking Wu Tang Clan — are the main attractions.

MUDBOY — Sheck Wes

An underground rave, with the buoyant, unfettered joy of young discovery. Young Thug and Future’s mumbling (but, you know, actually good), mixed with Lil Skies’s wonderfully low-fi sound — like a high-schooler who hits it big from his bedroom recording studio, walking on the right side of the fine line between endearing amateurishness and just being amateur — and, for the alarming cherry on top, the sonic sensibility of 6IX9INE’s peculiar abrasiveness.

Beloved — Dave East & Styles P

Straight rap.

Drip Harder — Lil Baby & Gunna

Will Lil Baby ever scale the heights of Too Hard again? As for Gunna…whatever.

Life After Fame — Quando Rondo

Auto-tuned within an inch of its life. There’s a difference between novel utilizations of this 21st century technology in pursuit of new sounds — ala the ways EDM has shaken up R&B; think how Kodak Black takes the form to its illogically-extreme conclusion — and just conventionally relying on it to elevate inferior voices. This album falls in the latter category .

Role Model — Young Dolph

The five popular rappers who inflict, oh so prolifically, the most aural pain: YoungBoy Never Broke Again, Moneybagg Yo, Money Man (so many references to moolah!), Don Q, and our boy here Young Dolph. This Public Service Announcement brought to you by my masochistic side.
