It’s been a long month as we continue to be under quarantine. With only two weeks and today marking the first Monday of May, it was only right to bring back MASS. Mondays. This week, we have new music from Breeze, 7981 Kal x G. Fredo, Alejandro Blanco x Goose Dinero x K.I.L., Prince Smooth, and SeeFour.

Be sure to stream their music below.

1. ALEJANDRO BLANCO, GOOD DINERO, K.I.L.

Artists: Alejandro Blanco, Goose Dinero, K.I.L.

Single: Summer Off

With Dinero Off Blanco set to drop soon, Alejandro Blanco, Goose Dinero, and K.I.L. team up for the first single off the forthcoming project titled, ‘Summer Off.’ Over the production of CHASEY peralta, the trio intends to enjoy the fruits of the labor this summer after working hard all winter long.

The record serves as a follow-up to Alejandro Blanco’s All About Dinero LP, released earlier this month.

This is the perfect song to ride to in these quarantine streets.

Stream it here.

2. PRINCE SMOOTH

Artist: Prince Smooth

Single: ‘Just How It Is’ (Freestyle)

After dropping “Big Capi” last month, Prince Smooth returns with a freestyle over Young Thug’s “Just How It Is.” Solo in the Tanj-directed clip, the Fields Corner rapper tells us in a minute and 26 seconds how he was able to get it in the mud.

Did he do Young Thug’s record justice? Watch above.

Be sure to stream Prince Smooth’s The Catalina project out now.

3. 7981 KAL, G FREDO

Artists: 7981 Kal, G Fredo

Single: ‘Dead Opps Pt. 3’

One thing I’ve always loved about 7981 Kal’s and G Fredo’s videos is how much fun they’ve seen to be having while being backed by drill instrumental. In ‘Dead Opps Pt. 3,’ the two HSM rappers clearly have words for some people and give us an official video, in case you didn’t get the message.

Make sure to revisit 7981 Kal’s debut mixtape Life Without Fear mixtape, alongside G Fredo’s ‘HSM4L‘ project out now.

4. YOUNGINTRUE

Artist: YounginTrue

Song: Options

It’s been a while since we’ve heard from YounginTrue, who’s been in his producer bag. Dropping Eastside Fairytales back in 2019, Truliano returns with his brand new single, ‘Options.’

Always providing a vibe, YounginTrue speaks on never switching up on his day one shorty regardless of the notoriety. With two minutes and 21 seconds in running time, I wish the track was longer.

It’s going on my playlist, for sure.

Stream above.

5. SEEFOUR

Artist: SeeFour

Song: On God

Releasing his Redline EP in collaboration with Jules Juliano last summer, SeeFour returns with the official video to his latest offering, “On God.” Starting the visual with a behind the scenes look of his mother and manager commenting on his craft to a stage performance in front of a sold-out crowd, the visual then shifts to the rapper riding through the streets of his hometown while putting everything on the big man upstairs.

This is definitely an uplifting record you’d want to play on a Monday morning to start your day.

Watch above.

6. BREZZE

enter image description here

Artist: Brezze

Single: Run Arounds

For all of the essential trappers, Brezze releases his brand new single, “Run Arounds.” All about getting a check, Brezze isn’t letting the quarantine slow up his money. Let’s be real, anyone making plays during a pandemic like this is an essential worker.

Stream “Run Arounds” here.
