Danny Brown – Atrocity Exhibition
Detroit rapper, Danny Brown, decided to drop his latest album early. It was slated for a September 30th release, but was pulled forward 3 days early to the 27th. Hidden somewhere within his retweet-flooded Twitter page, Danny Brown said he “couldn’t hold it no more longer.” His fourth solo LP, Atrocity Exhibition, features Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul, Earl Sweatshirt, and more.

Banks – The Altar
Jillian Banks, simply known as Banks, started her career off strong in 2014 with her first LP, Goddess. She returned this week with her sophomore release The Altar. Her dark form of pop is refreshing in a world full of overly feel-good pop music.
