Before we do anything else, we will address the elephant on the internet: Jesus Is King is not available for purchase or stream today and we, like the rest of the universe, have no idea when Kanye will decide to release it.

As with Yhandi about a year ago, the troubled rapper seems to be content with seething fans, all still amazingly desperate for the day one of the two does drop.

Moving on.

The next most-anticipated album, by our estimation, is a toss-up between DaBaby’s Kirk and Kevin Gates’ I’m Him.

Young California’s DJ Carisma tapped in to give us some insight on what’s good this week. So without further delay, flip the lid to see our choices for the hottest album releases of the week and playlist-ready singles.

I like to describe myself as a pen pro. I believe everything begins with the pen. To no fault of its own, this generation has turned in its pen for a keyboard, but the concept remains the same: Write from the heart… Write from the start.
