Today, Key Glock returns with the sequel to his 2020-project with no features, but taps on the production services of Tay Keith, BandPlay, Buddah Bless, and several others. Released under his cousin Young Dolph’s Paper Route Empire once again, Key Glock tells HNHH that he never really planned on making a sequel, but the Memphis rapper blessed us with it, nonetheless.
“I never liked doing sequels. I never planned on even doing a sequel, but it’s more of, like, a statement,” Key Glock tells Hot New Hip Hop. “That color, it was my great grandmother’s favorite color. Y’all look at it like it’s yellow. I look at it like it’s gold, ‘cause I’m a player. But I just had to keep it going because the first one made so much of a statement, and I had to let ‘em know it’s actually yellow tape. When you see yellow tape, you know what it means– caution, beware, something dumb happened, something about to happen. But I’m letting you know it’s still yellow tape– this shit still happening, still about to happen. Like for real.”

Jessie Reyez Returns With ‘Yessie’
Marking two years since the release of her Before Love Came To Kill Us, Jessie Reyez returns with her sophomore album, Yessie. With a lone feature from 6LACK on “FOREVER,” the 11-track project features production handled by Calvin Harris, Tim Suby, Rykeyz, Pop Wanself and more.
“I’ve made more of a conscious effort to be better to myself, be healthier and be kinder, extend myself the grace that I extend to other people. And I think it’s shown up in my music, too. It’s just more healing,” Jessie tells The Forty-Five. “The toxic is still there a little, because I’m not perfect and I’m still working on things. But there’s an arc. I was gonna call it ‘Self’ originally, but then the more I thought about it, the more I was like, I’m gonna make it general. I’ve never made music for other people.”
“I’ve always made it for me. So how can I make it more intimate? And then I thought of what my loved ones call me, my family calls me, what my ex used to call me: Yessie. It’s sweet. It’s closer to me. It’s more intimate. That’s how Yessie came to be.”

You know what I’m saying? But you got to make it better. So that feeling of not feeling nothing… You know what I’m saying? That shit’s basically just keep going through it, don’t let it affect you. Before I knew to tell myself, that’s how I really was. You know what I’m saying? So that’s just what that album’s about.”

“Transitional space. Very vulnerable codependent and validation seeking part of my life,” Lennox told Cole in a test message. “I remember the countless times I was kicked out of dating apps because they didn’t think I was really myself, it reminded me of those age/sex/location days where I actually wasn’t being myself in those chat rooms.”
