Run the Jewels
Label: 
Run The Jewels, Inc.

Adding a third album to their repertoire, the iconic duo Run the Jewels has released Run the Jewels 3. Although the style of the music is still the same intense and rebellious style they've had throughout the other albums, the lyrics in this album are darker compared to its predecessors. For example, "2100" is an apocalyptic prediction of 2100. In one of Killer Mike's parts, he mentions how he refuses "to kill another human being in the name of the government", nuclear war, and molotovs. BOOTS sings eerily, "Save my swollen heart.

Mac Miller
Label: 
Warner Bros. Records

While I understand why hardcore Mac Miller fans probably didn't really enjoy this album, I thought it was dope as fuck. It's definitely a departure from current charting hip hop, with distorted synths, soft vocals, and a tripped out disco vibe. Unfortunately many of the songs on this copy of The Divine Feminine are explicit and so are not airable on KAMP.

Angel Haze
Label: 
Island Records

Moonrise Kingdom is one of the tracks off Angel Haze's new album Back to the Woods that was released early. It's unlike a lot of her other works. Usually Haze has a hard and undergroud rap vibe about her. Moonrise Kingdom is such a deviation (an amazing deviation) that is song and not rap. If you've seen the movie Moonrise Kingdom, then you might get the vibe of this song. While it might not feel like an actual song in the movie, it would be a perfect fit of the Moonrise Kingdom was compressed into a music video, and had darker colors.
