The Rap and Hip-Hop scene in January has been an exciting array of album releases 🎧 from both established and emerging artists, reflecting the genre’s dynamic and innovative spirit. Here are some recent releases highlights from the first half of the month:

  1. Hus Kingpin & 9th Wonder – “The Supergoat” (Released January 5, 2024): This album features strong performances from Hus Kingpin and guests like Roscoe P Coldchain and Fredro Starr, set to stylish instrumentals by 9th Wonder. Despite its brief 31-minute runtime, it stands out as one of Hus Kingpin’s best works, comparable to his previous albums like “Cocaine Beach” and “PORTISHUS”.

  2. Bumpy Knuckles & OG Jazzo – “Level Up” (Released January 15, 2024): This collaboration underscores Bumpy Knuckles’ enduring relevance in Hip-Hop. The album, with its straightforward ’90s boom-bap beats, perfectly complements Bumpy Knuckles’ gritty flows, though its length of just over 30 minutes leaves fans wanting more.

  3. Bruiser Wolf – “My Story Got Stories” (Released January 12, 2024): Bruiser Wolf’s unique vocal style and delivery, reminiscent of E-40, make this album distinct. While it doesn’t quite reach the heights of his debut “Dope Game Stupid”, it’s still a commendable effort with entertaining flows and lyrics.

  4. Magno Garcia – “La Gloria Sea” (Released January 5, 2024): This album from Boston-based rapper Magno Garcia offers a dark, underground boom-bap experience across 18 tracks. It delves into profound, God-related themes and includes guest appearances from artists like Lord Juco and Sleep Sinatra, making it a reflective and head-nodding listen.

  5. Leaf Dog – “Photosynthesis” (Released January 2, 2024): A notable figure in the UK Hip Hop scene, Leaf Dog delivers another standout album. His ’90s-centric boom-bap beats and robust solo performances, along with posthumous verses from Sean Price and Big Pun, make “Photosynthesis” a significant addition to his discography.
