It's been a big week in the world of rap, R&B, and other hip hop-adjacent music thanks to the new albums by Mulatto and Mach-Hommy (which you can read about in Notable Releases), The Firm's reunion on the new Nas album (see below), and new singles from JAY-Z/Pharrell, Vic Mensa, BbyMutha, Pink Siifu & Fly Anakin, Open Mike Eagle, 42 Dugg, Internet Money, and more. Read on for all the hip hop we posted this week...

NAS - "FULL CIRCLE" (ft. THE FIRM)

Nas returned today with then new album album King's Disease, entirely produced by Hit-Boy, who's able to help make Nas' music sound modern while giving him the space to do what he does best. (Unlike his last album -- 2018's Kanye-produced Nasir does -- where he was very out of his element.) The album features well-executed guest appearances by A$AP Ferg, Anderson .Paak, Big Sean, and others, but the most exciting and newsworthy guest appearance is the reunion of Nas' '90s group The Firm on "Full Circle." Original members AZ, Foxy Brown, and Cormega all appear on the track (but not Nature, who replaced Cormega before the recording of The Firm's sole album), and frequent Firm producer Dr. Dre is credited with additional vocals on the track too. Cormega's already put out some worthy music this year, but we haven't heard from AZ or Foxy Brown in a while, and it sounds like they've still got it.
