Fans of Ariez Onasis have been patiently waiting for a second round of the Unsigned Hype alumni’s playboy playlist after his breakout debut LP, The Heatbreak Kid, which featured Wiz Khalifa,Planet VI, TUGE and more. Presented by Adrian Swish, the HBK’s latest project, Theme Music, provides a diverse group of original tracks with something to offer for both the rap heads (“See About Me“) and the ratchets (“Punanny & Soda”) . Theme Music features guest appearances by Kevin Cossom, MMG’s DJ Sam Sneak, Peedi Crakk, and up-and-coming NYC rhymeslinger TUGE. AO’s go-to producer J. Cardim cooks up half of the tape while Rich Muzik, The Lottery, K Da Composerand JussLu all craft beats that add different dimensions to Ariez’s latest arsenal of rhymes.

Last night Jermaine held a listening session via the Lisnr app at several locations across the country. Within an hour the entire album was ripped and online for the masses to absorb. Cole said he knew a leak was coming and in this day and age, there’s not much you can do to stop it. It’s more of an “If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em” type of mentality. With that said, the album hits stores June 18th, but Born Sinner is now available for stream, so head below for the goods.
We were introduced to Polyester when he dropped the Freddie Gibbs-featured “I Win.” Coming with that super West Coast flavor, P gives us his new album, which was recorded, mixed, and mastered by The Saint himself. Aside from Gangsta Gibbs, Le$, Mann, Niko G4, Bad Lucc, and Jay 305 all make appearances as well. Stream P.O.P. after the break and show some love on iTunes here.
After giving us a few releases over the past several weeks, the Miami-bred Flight School Preps are here with their a 17-track LP.

With what feels like a never-ending supply of music, Gucci Mane continues to feed the streets. After giving us five projects already this year, Guwop slings the latest installment in the Trap House series up on Bandcamp for $6. Gucci also made the project available for stream ’cause lord knows hes got fans without any type of digital funds. Stream Trap House III below.
It’s nearly impossible to keep an album away from the ruthless internet before its release date, ask The-Dream. Unfazed and following suit of several other major releases, Terius makes IV Play for stream via VEVO before it hits stores May 28.
