The end of 2017 has been amazing for fans of N.E.R.D., who have just released their first new album in seven years. The new project, NO_ONE EVER REALLY DIES, encapsulates everything that have made Pharrell Williams-led trio popular since their first album all the way back in 2002.

The group announced their new album at their performance at this year's ComplexCon festival, and fans have been eagerly awaiting this release since they played the album in full during that set. N.E.R.D. further increased the album hype with the hard-hitting "Lemon," which gave us one of the best rap verses we've ever heard from Rihanna, and "Don't Don't Do It" with an amazing Kendrick Lamar feature and songwriting credits from Frank Ocean.

The rest of the album doesn't disappoint, with unorthodox features from Andre 3000, MIA, and more accentuating Pharrell's songwriting abilities (even the Ed Sheeran collab works). The full tracklist includes Kendrick Lamar, Andre 3000, Gucci Mane, Rihanna, M.I.A., Future, Ed Sheehan and WaleIt never stays in one place for too long, juxtaposing R&B ballads next to club-ready bangers and having multiple beat switches throughout some of the songs.

This album caps off an incredible year of hip-hop, and we cannot wait to spend more time with it. Enjoy!


N.E.R.D. Share Release Date For Highly Anticipated Forthcoming Album Ft. Kendrick Lamar, Andre 3000, Future, M.I.A. & More

Earlier this month, beloved hip-hop/R&B/rock trio N.E.R.D. announced their return to music, releasing a new single with Rihanna and debuting their new album during their set at ComplexCon. Today the group has followed-up with the release date and artwork for their new album No_One Ever Really Dies, set to release on December 15th. The new feature-heavy album will include contributions from Kendrick Lamar, Andre 3000, Gucci Mane, M.I.A., Future, and more. 

After taking a break following the release of their 2010 album Nothing, it seemed that the members of N.E.R.D. had gone their separate ways and that would be their final album. Pharrell Williams was having a lucrative solo career, Chad Hugo went on to work with other up-and-coming artists (like Earl Sweatshirt and The Internet), while Shay Haley decided to stay out of the spotlight. The group came back together in 2014 to record a song for The Spongebob Squarepants Movie, but no word of a reunion.

This all changed when ComplexCon announced that they would be bringing N.E.R.D. to headline their annual festival, and cryptic messages had fans starting to speculate on new music releases. They decided to play the previously unannounced album in full for their fans at the show, which was met with positive feedback from the crowd. We knew the album was coming soon, but we're incredibly excited that they announced today we'll be getting the new album in less than a month. 

We'll be sure to post any more singles they drop leading up to the album release, and look forward to their fifth studio album on 12/15. Enjoy! 

Gucci Mane Drops Star Studded Album 'Mr. Davis' Ft. A$AP Rocky, The Weeknd, ScHoolboy Q & More

Gucci Mane has been on a hot streak since his release from prison last May, and his new feature-heavy album Mr. Davis is some of the best music he's put out since then. The album includes the previously released collaboration with The Weeknd, "Curve," in addition to features from A$AP Rocky, ScHoolboy Q, Migos, Big Sean ,Ty Dolla $ign, and more. 

In the time since he has been out, Gucci looks and sounds like a completely different man. By focusing on his health and sobriety, it is clear that he is more focused than ever and is an incredibly inspiring comeback story to watch. Since last May, he released six new projects, had a #1 song with Rae Sremmurd  ("Black Beatles"), proposed to his long-time girlfriend, and wrote an autobiography. For most artists, this much packed into one year would result in a decline in the quality of music. But Gucci is not like most, and his insane output shows his dedication to his work ethic.

For the new album, he calls upon some of the biggest producers from Atlanta right now to provide the beats, including Metro Boomin, Mike Will Made-It, Zaytoven, Murda Beatz, and TM88. The clear Atlanta trap sound is the perfect backing for Gucci's improved rapping and confidence on the mic, starting off with an incredibly impressive intro (as he is known to do). All the featured artists bring their A-game, but none take the spotlight away from Gucci who remains the star of the album. 

If this is what his first year has looked like for the new Gucci Mane, we can't wait to see where his already prosperous career will go from here. Enjoy!
