After a five-year layoff and battling with mental-health issues, Isaiah Rashad is ready to bare his soul on his new album, The House Is Burning.
Fans quickly predicted that the album would be some of this best work yet, after the Chattanooga rapper shared the cover art and release date on Instagram on Wednesday. The cover features a house engulfed in orange flames.
“Album of the Year,” wrote one fan in the comments, while another said, “It’s about…time.” Yet another said, “Five years zay has returned.”
The House Is Burning will be Rashad’s first album since 2016’s acclaimed The Sun’s Tirade, which peaked at #4 on Billboard‘s Top R&B/Hip Hop Albums chart and at #2 on the Top Rap Albums chart. The new record will feature his electric single “Lay wit Ya” featuring fellow Tennessean Duke Deuce, and the smooth track “Headshots (4r Da Locals),” in which Rashad discusses being in a healthy mental space.
The House Is Burning arrives on July 30.
