For this week’s music roundup, we saw a slew of new major releases following the sluggish post-holiday window last week. Picking things up this week however, were the likes of Lil Uzi Vert, Jay Rock, Skepta, Xavief Wulf, Jorja Smith and Stormzy among others. Also grabbing the headlines was Lil Pump who announced he was officially a free agent after voiding his contract with Warner Bros Records earlier this week, while TM88 – the producer behind one rap’s biggest singles last year with Lil Uzi Vert’s “XO Tour Llif3” — told the world he was never compensated for his work on the record. Dr. Dre also was in the news after he told ESPN that he’s “working on a couple songs” for the long-fabled Detox album all-while several hackers took over a police radio frequency this week and broadcasted N.W.A’s “F*ck Tha Police” on repeat.
