Ski Mask the Slump God’s spring was marred by a false start. The South Florida rapper—who is indebted sonically to SoundCloud and spiritually to artists like Busta Rhymes—released the much-anticipated Beware the Book of Eli on the free platform, only for his management to have it removed swiftly. While the tape did eventually see an official drop, it was missing three songs that appeared on the leaked version. Now, though, Ski is readying a new project. Its title is unknown, but it’s set to include 16 tracks and, per the rapper, come out in October. Here’s hoping this release goes more smoothly than the Eli rollout. —Lucas Wisenthal
