Rap, “Music” by Playboi Carti. “Music” will be Carti’s third studio album and is rumored to be more experimental than his previous albums moving away from his familiar sound. This sound normally consists of countless adlibs and sometimes screaming.

Lyrical Rap, “Child of Wolves” by Baby Keem. “Child of Wolves” is set to be Baby Keem’s first release since the Melodic Blue, one of the most critically acclaimed rap albums of all time. It is expected the album will feature artists like Kendrick Lamar and several others.

Metro Boomin Collaborations. Metro Boomin has made reference to and stated that he will be releasing several albums both independently and with other artists throughout 2024. Only a little is known about these projects other than Boomin will begin working on them after he finishes playing “Spider-Man Two.”

Lyrical Rap, “Forever and a Day” by J.I.D. After J.I.D. released “The Forever Story,” fans have been begging for new music, as the album was nominated for several awards and held to great esteem by various other artists and critics. Not much is known about the album besides its name.

If everything pans out, 2024 is looking to be a massive year for music. With several A-list artists releasing this year and some even calling it quits after this last hoorah fans such as senior Spencer Wood a frequent concert and festival goer are more excited than ever.

“Everyone has been waiting and hearing all the hype around Kanye releasing his new album Vultures,” Wood said. “Also Playboi Carti Because he only has a few albums and it’s been around five years.”

This feeling is expressed by many music fans as many of these artists potentially coming to the end of their careers have been teasing albums for months and fans such as Wood are growing anxious. Overall, music fans should stay on high alert for all the new music of 2024.
