Last night, Drizzy Drake released an EP, Scary Hours, which comprises of two tracks.
The first song, “God’s Plan,” has all the aspects of a Drake song that you’d expect. The second, “Diplomatic Immunity,” has more of an orchestral vibe to it. I’m not a huge fan of Drake because he usually doesn’t put much thought into his lyrics, but “Diplomatic Immunity” pleasantly surprised me. It’s basically four and a half minutes of Drake venting over a well-made instrumental.

Today, Dreamville’s EarthGang dropped the second installment in a three-part series of conceptually linked EPs leading up to the debut project, Mirrorland.
Last month, in celebration of Johnny Venus and Doctur Dot signing a record deal with J. Cole’s Dreamville Records, the Atlanta rap duo released Rags – EP.
Robots continues the trifecta, which is set to conclude with Royalty before the end of the year. Although both Rags and Robots each stand on their own as very solid pieces of work, Dot has assured fans that each chapter makes up part of a “deconstructed album.”
The lost art of creating musical narratives appeals to both Venus and Dot, the latter saying:
“What I’m interested to see is how many people play ’em all back to back and play the story through and see … Those kind of conversations are my favorite. Those are the people that pick out the details and interpret shit their own way. It’s my favorite part of doing this shit ‘cause I don’t never tell someone they’re wrong. I think that’s dope. I ain’t think about it that way. That’s my favorite part.”
In my opinion, EarthGang represents some of the best lyricism to come out of Atlanta since OutKast. I’m excited to see how the three EP’s tie into the story of Mirrorland.

Play Pretend – EP is a newly released project from Seattle emcee, Sam Lachow. The five-song EP features Sam’s close friend and talented vocalist, Maggie Lou May, on every track.
Unlike the majority of Lachow’s discography, this record displays his deeper, more emotional side. Topics include substance abuse, mental health, and self-belief. I enjoyed the album thoroughly but I wish it was a full-length project, instead of an EP.
