This week’s music will have you cheesin’ heavier than me in the above pic. So many HUGE releases, let’s get right into it:
Nipsey Hussle continues to release new music
Nipsey Hussle dropped another dope track this week, this time featuring one extended verse to begin and a hook courtesy of Buddy to end the track. The beat to this one is fire, as is usual with Nipsey’s music.
De La Soul drops off their lead single
De La Soul burst onto the hip-hop scene in the late 80s with “3 Feet High and Rising,” an album that is widely considered as one of the top 100 albums in hip-hop history. Since then, the group has been consistently putting out music every few years and has received much praise from critics despite somewhat low sales. “Pain” serves as the lead single off their upcoming ninth studio album “and the Anonymous Nobody.” The song is funky and soulful and features a guest verse from Snoop Dogg. What’s not to love about that?
Hopsin releases “Die This Way”
Hopsin has always been an underrated artist in my mind. His flows are usually impressive and he keeps it real in his music. On this one, he delves into his inner struggle between masking his unhappiness or embracing it. Which will he choose? Listen to find out.
I actually kind of like this song
I’ve said on this site before that I don’t really like Young Thug. I don’t understand why people go ape shit for his music. But even I have to admit, sometimes his unique approach to music is worth a listen. “Gangster Shit” is one of those times. This is a song to get hype to.
Pusha T and Jay Z team up on “Drug Dealers Anonymous”
How fitting that a song about dope is, in fact, dope. Pusha T is king of the drug dealer rap but we all know Jay Z is no stranger to this lifestyle. They both give excellent verses over a minimal but haunting beat. This song serves as Pusha’s lead single off his upcoming album “King Push.”
New RiRi on Mike Will Made It’s “Nothing is Promised”
Producer Mike Will Made It has a new album coming out soon and decided to give fans the first single off that today in the form of the Rihanna track called “Nothing is Promised.” Rihanna channels her inner bad bitch to create what will likely be a club favorite soon enough.
Vic Mensa delivers new EP
Chicago artist Vic Mensa decided to release a 7 song EP this week seemingly out of nowhere. He’s been putting out songs fairly consistently this year but nothing that seemed official. Well, we now have this EP with mostly unreleased music to enjoy.
Get brazy to this new track from YG
YG has done it again. The West Coast native has dropped off another banger today entitled “Still Brazy.” Catch a vibe and dance along to this hella dope track.
These new tracks keep coming with “Pick Up The Phone”
Travis Scott, Young Thug, and Quavo come together to create another big time song this week. Unfortunately, Travis Scott’s label is giving him a hard time about the release of this song so you may not be able to hear it on our site, but use your creative internet searching skills and go check this one out.
You think I’m done? Brace yourselves…
That’s right. All these guys have released new music this week and we can include Kanye on the list. This is the radio rip of the huge posse-cut that is the first song released from the long-rumored, now confirmed “Cruel Winter.” The song title is still not confirmed, but Big Boy suggested it should be called “Champions” or “Round and Round” after it premiered so we’ll go with that. The song features Kanye, Desiigner, Travis Scott, Big Sean, Gucci Mane, Quavo, Yo Gotti, and 2 Chainz. That’s big time.
Just when you think the review comes to an end, there’s still another one
Bruh, this song is so fucking good. This serves as the first single off DJ Khaled’s upcoming album “Major Key.” The beat is smooth af. Drake and Khaled team up to do what they do best, make summer hits. I’ll be jamming to this for the foreseeable future. Bless up.
That’s about it. Pretty awesome week for hip-hop. Chris Webby and Smoke DZA also released mixtapes if you want to check those out. That’ll do it for me. Peace.
