#MainstreamMonday

On Monday, the 6th, J. Cole blessed us with an unexpected visual of him freestyling over the Classic "Oochie Wally" instrumental just a day after tweeting "Feed me beats. Everything gettin(g) murdered."

On the 6th, Travis Scott also dropped his visual for "STOP TRYING TO BE GOD" which has a lot biblical references of Christ and the rapture in relation to White "Supremacy".

Nicki Minaj released her album, Queen this week. The "tell-all" album is Nicki's declaration of self-worth, which she has momentarily forgotten along with others close to her and the general public. Though Queen has been receiving mixed reviews (naturally), most of the reviews are good. Nicki has released a few singles prior to Queen's August 10th debut. An unreleased track I really enjoy is "CoCo Chanel" which features the legendary Foxy Brown.

Tyler Creator followed behind on the 8th, finally sharing an official video for "See You Again", my personal fave off his album, Flower Boy (July 2017). The visual is Russian Military themed and features an A$AP Rocky cameo.

RnB Pop-star, Ciara released her second single, "Freak Me", from her project in the works. She then dropped edited footage of choreography to the sexy song that reflects its native sound.
On the 9th, Dreamville artist, Bas, dropped a visual for "Boca Raton", the first single of his album set to release on August 24th. The song is a fun approach on how geographical distance can cause doubt in a relationship.
Tinashe's "Throw a Fit" was released 2 weeks ago, but is just now receiving heavy promo. The single is a spin on Gucci Man's "Sussie" and it's about using sex as leverage to gain material things or simply put: "using what you got to get what you want".
Quavo, member of the mega trio, Migos, released not one, but three solo tracks, "Working Me", "Lamb Talk"and "Bubble Gum". The tracks are available under his name on all streaming platforms.
