The Breezy era begins.
Ahead of his 10th studio album, Chris Brown kicks things off with the first single “Iffy.” On the R&B banger, co-written by Eric Bellinger, Breezy brings the party to life while taking inspiration from 50 Cent’s birthday anthem “In Da Club.”
“It’s your birthday, put your hands in the air if it’s your birthday / And you know we don’t give a f**k it’s not your birthday,” sings Chris, who also pays homage to Kobe Bryant. “24 on the jersey, just for Mamba and shit.”
Breezy, the follow-up to 2019’s Indigo, was announced back in July 2020. The album will contain 16 tracks, like Chris’ 2005 self-titled debut. “The amount of songs on this one will be the same amount of songs as my first album. KEEP IT CLASSIC… Chris Brown to BREEZY!” he told fans.
A video for “Iffy,” directed by Joseph Kahn, is set to premiere Friday morning.

When it comes to Kendrick Lamar, the question on everyone’s mind has been when he’ll drop his next album. We haven’t heard from him in nearly five years since DAMN. dropped in April of 2017 and while his appearance on Baby Keem’s ‘family ties‘ seemed to imply that he’d drop something before last year was out (“2021 I ain’t taking no prisoner”), it wasn’t meant to be.Today, fans get some news that they might not have been expecting, but is a pleasant surprise and welcome anyway.It has been revealed that Kendrick Lamar will work with pgLang partner Dave Free and the creators of South Park Matt Stone and Trey Parker, on a live-action comedy for Paramount Pictures. The film will be penned by Vernon Chatman, who also works heavily on South Park.The concept of the film is interesting.

Kendrick and Dave Free are producing for their multimedia company pgLang while Stone and Parker are producing for Park County.The film is currently untitled and there’s no word yet on when it will be out, but production is set to begin in spring and when it does release, it will be available to stream on Paramount+.

Compared to his previous years in the game, Murda Beatz had a relatively quiet 2021.

The campaign for his forthcoming project Keep God First 2 has begun with a big new single. He grabs the assistance of Wale and Blxst for his new single ‘One Shot’. The DC rapper is fresh off of Folarin II and Blxst is everywhere right now, so this has big potential.It drops officially at midnight but Hip-Hop Nation is playing it every hour until then.

In September 2020, the pandemic forced the FX series to shut down before filming resumed at the top of 2021. The third and fourth seasons of “Atlanta” were shot and written together.
“I align the seasons I think, to me, like Kanye records,” Glover said at the 2018 Emmys FYC screening. “I feel like this is our Graduation. This is probably our most accessible but also the realest — an honest version of it — and I feel like the most enjoyable, like the third album. We were all on iMessage together and kind of talking about it, and I think people were really hungry to like beat ourselves, which is great.”
Season 3 of “Atlanta” premieres with a two-episode opener on March 24. On Halloween, Glover released a minute-long trailer offering a first glimpse at the upcoming season.
