Drake — Scorpion

Drake doubles up. Coming off January’s Scary Hours and a heated feud with Pusha-T, Drizzy unleashes his fifth studio album and his first double disc, Scorpion.

Aubrey Graham uses this opportunity to open up, confirming his rumored son on multiple songs. “I had to come to terms with the fact that it’s not a maybe,” he raps on “March 14.” “That shit is in stone, sealed and signed / She not my lover like Billie Jean but the kid is mine.”

Before Scorpion’s release, Pusha-T claimed Drake was “hiding a child” on “The Story of Adidon.” Drizzy appeared to respond to this line on Scorpion’s “Emotionless.” “I wasn’t hiding my kid from the world,” he explains. “I was hiding the world from my kid.”

Several artists appear on this 25-song double album through guest appearances and vocal samples, including JAY-Z, Nicki Minaj, Michael Jackson, Mariah Carey, Ty Dolla $ign, and Static Major. Listen to Scorpion below.

A$AP Ferg — “Not the Boy” & “Verified”

Set it on fire! A$AP Ferg keeps his foot on the gas pedal, releasing two new tracks (“Not the Boy” and “Verified”) to bring June to an end.

The first of those is a hard-hitting banger produced by Kash Beats and Tweek Tune. “Set it on fire, let it go over the flame,” he raps on the hook. “We could do it on the boat,” he later adds. “JAY-Z, ‘Big Pimpin’.’”

Trap Lord keeps that same energy going with “Verified,” which was produced by Tweek Tune. “Blue check, it help validate me,” raps Ferg. “Blue check on the side of the screen…Blue check, they gon’ holler at me.”

Fergenstein has been releasing new music at a steady pace. Last year, he dropped Still Striving and joined A$AP Mob for Cozy Tapes Vol. 2: Too Cozy. This year, he’s also released cuts like “Kristi YamaGucci” and “Pull Up” while soaring with the success of “Plain Jane.”

Wiz Khalifa feat. Problem — “Gin & Drugs”

Wiz Khalifa goes to California. The Taylor Gang boss teams up with Compton rapper Problem for “Gin & Drugs,” a song seemingly inspired by Zapp’s “More Bounce to the Ounce” and Notorious B.I.G.’s “Going Back to Cali.”

“Want more bounce?” asks Mister Cap. “We got more ounces,” he responds. Meanwhile, Problem comes through with his own verse over the head-knocking production, bragging about how he’s “married to the money” and how his “stacks stay high.”

The song, which also seems influenced by Snoop Dogg’s “Gin & Juice,” is Wiz Khalifa’s latest. Keen fans believe it may end up on Rolling Papers 2, which is out next month. The long-awaited follow-up to the 2011 fan favorite is due July 13.

Casanova — Commissary

Boom-boom-boom! Casanova keeps the gritty smashes coming with a new nine-song EP in Commissary. This time around, Cas brings famous friends along for the energetic ride.

G-Eazy, Rich the Kid, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Chris Brown, Fabolous, Mozzy, and O.T. Genasis all lend their voices to the project. Meanwhile, Jahlil Beats, Cool & Dre, Scott Storch, and J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League add production aid throughout.

Cas released the new effort with a message to supporters. “ACT LIKE IM DEAD AND REPOST IT,” he wrote on Instagram. “LIKE IT STREM IT. AND TELL ME ALL HOW MUCH YOU LOVE ME AND HOW GREAT MY MUSIC IS.”
