Dive into these releases from Future, Polo G, and Sheff G as you soak up another weekend in the crib. 🔥

Future – High Off Life

Following a rollercoaster week in which he learned that he had a seventh child and referred to one of 6ix9ine's baby mamas as a "prop," Future delivered his eighth studio album, High Off Life.

Hours before the album was set to drop, Future sent fans on a scavenger hunt across the internet by hiding his single with Lil Uzi Vert, "All Bad," in one of 149 owned domains. However, persistent fans were quickly able to track down the site, originally highoff.shopping, containing the audio treasure.

On this bubbly track, Uzi mentions his new nickname, "Young Spend It;" shouts out one of his favorite luxury designers, Christian Dior; as well as name-drops an Instagram model, YellowDol, who has apparently spent quality time with both Uzi and Future.

Future, meanwhile, reflects on getting down with his neighbor's friend and briefly nods toward Uzi and 21 Savage's collaboration "Yessirskiii" near the end of his verse, dropping a spirited "for sure-ski."

Besides Uzi, other big names that grace High Off Life include: Travis Scott, YoungBoy Never Broke Again, Young Thug, Drake, and a few others. Just don't let the reckless energy of this album push you to break quarantine.

Polo G – THE GOAT

Following up on his debut album, Die A Legend, with an even more self-assured title, THE GOAT, Chicago artist Polo G is clearly determined to leave an indelible stamp on the rap game.

As he told HotNewHipHop, this feeling comes from his astrological sign, a Capricorn, which is often represented by a goat. This sign also lends itself to other all-time greats, like LeBron James, Denzel Washington, Martin Luther King, and Tiger Woods.

Across 16 songs, Polo G offers signature tales of how he turned his struggle into success, a transparent style that fans have come to cherish since he emerged on the scene in 2019. Yet, he also reveals other attitudes that haven't seen as much action, like his more romantic side on "Martin & Gina."

Teaming with his late, fellow Chicagoan Juice WRLD for the first official time on "Flex," the two share boastful rhymes about how far they've come while reminding any opps that they're still not the ones to test. "Natural born hustler, n***a, stuntin' is my strong suit," Polo G raps on the hook.

This record is ideal for your at-home workout.

Sheff G – One and Only

As one of the pioneers of the Brooklyn drill sound, Sheff G already has a legacy. In fact, the late Pop Smoke, who's posthumous album is scheduled to arrive on June 12, often credited Sheff G with inspiring him to give rap a try.

Knowing Sheff G's status as a neighborhood hero in Brooklyn, it's time for the 21-year-old to take that recognition to the next level. His latest project, One and Only, is a strong step in the right direction.

Most of the production on One and Only comes from Great John, who crafted the beats for standout singles like "Moody" and "No Suburban, Pt. 2." The latter is the sequel to "No Suburban," the song that launched Sheff G's career as well as put the Brooklyn drill movement on the map in 2017.

Sheff G acknowledges his title as a trailblazer on this follow-up track, pulling quotes from those around him: "N****s like, 'Sheff, you be movin' too hot' / 'You got nothin' to prove, you the king of this shit.'"

Place yourself in Sheff G's native Flatbush borough by giving this 12-song collection a listen.
