Chance the Rapper
Dropping last Friday, the acclaimed rapper's gospel-influenced third mixtape/album and follow-up to 2013's Acid Rap is an Apple Music exclusive until May 27. (Last week's brief availability as a download on DatPiff was later deemed to be an unauthorized leak.) Guests include Kanye West, Justin Bieber, Future, Jay Electronica, Lil Wayne, and 2 Chainz.
Should I Remain Here at Sea?
After releasing a solo album and scoring two seasons of the hit podcast Serial, Nick Thorburn has returned to his main project, Islands. His band just released two unrelated albums on Friday, both the result of a PledgeMusic crowdfunding campaign. Taste is the more electronic of the pair, while Should I Remain Here at Sea? is more raw and organic.
