There’s been some mystery as of late surrounding what Vince Staples is going to get up to next, but yesterday brought some concrete information: Staples’ new album is called FM!, and now it’s out. There are also some bigger-picture questions pertaining to Migos member Takeoff: Is he ready to branch out on his own with his debut solo album? Will he shine all by his lonesome, or is the comfort of his trio a better fit for him?
Meanwhile, Jack Black’s comedy rock group Tenacious D has returned, Action Bronson rides in on his white horse with a new record, and country supergroup Pistol Annies are back with their first album in a while.

Staples’ post-“Get The F*ck Off My D*ck” project is here, and it helps establish the rapper as one of the most interesting dudes in the game. He brought a lot of friends along for the ride too, as the album features guest spots from Jay Rock, Kamaiyah, Tyga, and others.
