This week in hip-hop, both the older and younger generations of rappers are firing off some heat.

After a slight delay, NLE Choppa's Me vs Me has arrived. The album, which was initially slated to drop last month and received a new release date for Jan. 21 comes today instead as Choppa wanted to show respect for the release of fellow Memphian Young Dolph's tribute album, LLD, that came out last week. Choppa's latest features the rhymer slick-talking while also delivering sounds for all ears. The former 2020 XXL Freshman also shared via Twitter that his favorite track off of the LP is "Youngest to Do It." Me vs Me is Choppa's first album since 2020 when he offered From Dark to Light and Top Shotta.

Los Angeles' Kyle drops his fifth studio album, It's Not So Bad. The effort, which is being sold as an NFT, contains 12 songs in total. Kyle revealed via Twitter in December of last year that his label won't be getting a cut of the royalties from his newest work. "IT’S NOT SO BAD – MY FIFTH PROJECT – JAN 28th Instead of splitting the royalties with the label, I’ll be selling this project as an NFT to give an opportunity for my fans to own this project with me. We’re in this together. Forever & Ever. @opulousapp," he wrote. His last album, See You When I'm Famous!!!!!!!!!!!!, came out in 2020.

Another Memphis native, BlocBoy JB, delivered a new mixtape this week as well. On Wednesday (Jan. 26), BlocBoy's Bacc 2 Da Bloc with Tennessee-bred producer Tay Keith arrived. The 16-song tape includes appearances from Pooh Shiesty, EST Gee, SpotemGottem and more. BlocBoy's latest comes two years after the release of FatBoy, which dropped in 2020.
