Don't Sleep On Taylor Bennett's 'Restoration Of An American Idol' Album

Chance The Rapper's little bro has something special brewing.

Taylor Bennett released his follow-up to Broad Shoulders on Friday (Feb. 24) with a 9-track project titled, Restoration Of An American Idol. The 21-year-old enlisted a star-studded lineup of features weaved into the free album. Chance The Rapper also gifted his brother with a track he made two years ago when the 21-year-old was in the hospital for blood clots. The Mike WiLL Made-It produced tune pressed its way onto the soundscape, with Jeremih notching a guest appearance in addition to Chance.

"I ended up calling [Chance], and I was like, 'Yo, can I get this song, I really want this song,' and he was like, 'You know what, I got you.' And he gave it to me which was, like I said, a really big honor because I really loved that song," Taylor told The Fader.

Bennett expands on the struggles of being in the hospital for blood clots with fellow New York artists Stro and Jordan Bratton on the inspirational "New York Nights." The mood swings on the uptempo "Neon Lights" melody featuring fellow Chi-town rapper Supa Bwe, and rising star Lil Yachty. Bennett also raps bar after bar at a swift pace. Raury later makes an appearance on the Ludlow produced "Nobody Tell A Name" tune, making this duo a collaborative success.

Bennett aims to make 2017 his year, much like his older brother Chance did in 2016. Give the tuneful project a listen below. Congrats Taylor!

Rico Nasty To Release 'Anger Management' LP In April

Rico Nasty allowed much time to go by without new music. Since the release of her debut album Nasty last year, the rapper has released a steady amount of singles and slayed guest spots on tracks with Doja Cat and Amine. Now the 21-year-old is ready to drop another LP perfectly titled, Anger Management. 

On Sunday (March 24), Rico hopped on Instagram Live to share the news. A date hasn't been put in place but she assured that the project will "probably come out in April." Like many of her projects, Rico will team up with producer extraordinaire Kenny Beats. Rico revealed how she wants fans "to really enjoy it" as she will jump into different sounds and styles.

From what Rico disclosed in her Instagram Live, Anger Management will feature guest spots from Earthgang and "Intro part 2" rapper Splurge.

The "Countin' Up'" artist has always been unique in her style and comfortable in her own skin. Nasty, which was featured on our EOY lists last year, showed how successful Rico is at mixing trap and pop. Seems like fans can expect the same magic this time around.

Rico was most recently at SXSW and will perform at Coachella in April.

Nicky Jam And Ozuna's "Te Robare" Video Transports Them To Another World

Nicky Jam and Ozuna are on a mission to get the girl they want at all costs. A black and white montage serves as the backdrop for their playful new video for their latest single, “Te Robare,” which translates into the mischievous: “I’ll steal you.”

Throughout their performance, a bevy of beautiful women have brief interludes that go from talking in a vaporized infused telephone booth to breaking into a sexy dance group sequence. "We are very happy to be able to share this new single with the fans of the reggaetón genre, we are sure that they will enjoy this song as much as we do,” Nicky said in a press release.

Despite the video featuring a slew of women, it's worth noting that it looks sexy but classic. Jam prides himself in creating this type of imagery in his visuals. In 2017, he told Billboard, "Our audience is so broad that we have to make videos where women look beautiful and conservative and are treated with respect because the videos are seen by kids and adults," he said. "Other reggaetóneros who do what they do are targeting one audience. They don’t have the same responsibility we do."

In addition to releasing new music, Nicky Jam is kicking off his "Intimo Tour 2019" on April 11 in Chicago and will go through the month of May. Watch the video for "Te Robare" above.

"With every trial is a testimony!" Tommie tells VIBE. "Here is mine."

With that, the The Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta star drops her new music video for "Truth."

The video, directed by illHD and Tommie herself, splits between its own storyline and vintage footage of her life.

“This is/was my real life! Beyond the lights. I wanted to share with the people the back story, my whole truth," Tommie said. "In doing so I hope to motivate others struggling with their truth to not be afraid and be inspired to not give up!”
