Coming off a week that was packed with new music—including, Travis Scott’s AstroworldYG’s Stay Dangerous, Mac Miller’s Swimming and H.E.R.’s I Used to Know Her—it’s time to get ready for what’s to come in the next seven days.

Here’s a look at what’s dropping this week:

Trippie Redd, Life’s A Trip (8/10)

In just under two years, Ohio rapper Trippie Redd has come to the forefront of the trap music scene thanks to a pair of mixtapes from last year:A Love Letter to You and A Love Letter to You 2The two tapes featured some of Trippie’s most popular work including “Poles1469,” “Love Scars” and”Bust Down.”

Trippie is now readying the release of his debut album Life’s A Trip. According to a late-June Instagram post, the album boasts an overwhelming 26 songs. But based off various leaks, snippets and official releases—”Dark Knight Dummo,” “I Kill People!,” “Together/Bigger Than Satan” and “BILAP“—it’s hard to tell if we’re actually getting all 26. We’ll just have to wait until August 10th to find out.
