Mozzy is set to drop his fifth studio album, Beyond Bulletproof, at the top of the month. The Sacramento, Calif. rapper announced the release back in March while also premiering a video for his single, "I Ain't Perfect" featuring R&B singer Blxst, which is set to appear on the album.
On May 8, Lil Durk will deliver his latest effort, Just Cause Y'all Waited 2. The release is the follow-up to his Just Cause Y'all Waited mixtape, which came out in 2019.
