Brooklyn rapper (and firefighter) Ka surprised released TWO new albums today: Languish Arts and Woeful Studies. As he's done with albums in the past, both are currently available only as paid downloads from his website ($20), but he has shared the video for the ethereal "Ascension" from Languish Arts, which you can watch below.

Ka mostly produced both albums himself, but Pitchfork reports that Languish Arts track "Unhinged" was produced by Animoss and features Chuck Strangers, while “Still Holding” was produced by Preservation and features Joi and GoneToHeaven.

Ka's previous album, A Martyr's Reward, made our list of Best Rap Albums of 2021, while Descendants of Cain made our Best Rap Albums of 2020 list.
