Days after a media blackout to protest racism and push the BlackLivesMatter movement, there would also be a hiphop music “blackout”.
Several artistes who had scheduled to release albums and Extended plays this week have suspended the move out of respect, as the protest continues across the US following George Floyd’s murder.
These projects were slated for release either today or tomorrow:
- G-Eazy – Everything’s Strange Here
- Boosie Badazz – In House
- Max B – Charly
- Chloe x Halle – Ungodly Hour
- Marlon Craft – Work From Home
- Iann Dior – I’m Gone
- Dizzy Wright and Demrick – Blaze With Us 2
Some others went ahead to release their albums though like Flatbush Zombies and the duo of Paul Wall and Lil Keke, but many have either decided to donate proceeds to charities that promote the anti-racism or BLM movement, or release their album to download for free, like Killer Mike and El-P’s fourth studio LP, titled: “Run the Jewels 4”
