The Best New Rap Music To Have On Your Radar

Hip-hop is moving as fast as ever. Luckily, we’re doing the work to put the best music in one place for you. This week, we had a boatload of videos from Megan Thee Stallion and Nicki Minaj, Chance The Rapper, Lil Nas X, Mustard and Future, Post Malone, Earthgang, Danny Brown, as well as Rexx Life Rajj and Kenny Beats. There were also tracks released by Conway and the Super Slimey team of Future and Young Thug. Here’s the best of the rest:

Skyzoo & Pete Rock — “Eastern Conference All-Stars” Feat. Conway, Benny The Butcher, Westside Gunn, Elzhi

Skyzoo got with some of the most respected spitters in the game on “Eastern Conference All-Stars,” where he traded bars with the Griselda crew and Elzhi over a glorious Pete Rock production. The single is from Rock and Skyzoo’s Retropolitan project.

Smokepurrp — “Devil In A Tight Dress”

Smokepurrp gets sentimental on “Devil In A Tight Dress,” a three-minute track where he wails that he’s “a walking dead man” over dreary guitar play and thumping drums.

Wifisfuneral — “Me & My Drank” Cover

Wifisfuneral decided to do a cover of Lil Wayne’s “Me & My Drank” classic. His 2019 ode to “that purple somebody” doesn’t quite have the pull of the original, but it goes to show the impact that Wayne has had on several generations of MCs who have come after him.

Supa BWE — “ANIMAL”

Chicago’s Supa BWE gets sensual on “ANIMAL,” where he lets a girl know that “I’m almost famous, I can’t love another soul,” and croons over a sultry soundscape. “ANIMAL” is from his JAGUAR project, which will be out on October 4.

Drakeo The Ruler — “Black Holocaust” Feat. Rio Da Yung OG

Drakeo got the unfortunate news this week that he will be retried on criminal gang conspiracy and shooting from a motor vehicle charges. But for now, he’s still free to release music like “Black Holocaust,” a gritty single with Rio Da Yung OG.

Lilgotit — “Drip On”

In the video for the mysterious “Drip On,” “broke Gotit” is watching “rich Gotit” flex with the trappings of wealth. Luckily, in this universe, tracks like “Drip On” have the Atlanta rapper doing quite alright.

Marlon Craft — “Family”

New York rapper Marlon Craft paid homage to his loved ones on “Family,” a touching ode to the Craft clan. The feel-good video is matched with heartfelt lyrics, including his admission that “it’s all cause of y’all that I did some sh*t that I can’t believe.”

Deadmall & Rothstein — “Take Me Back To August”

Rothstein and Deadmall (a combo of Gabe Gill and Honeyfitz) are putting on for Massachusetts in fine fashion on “take me back to august,” a single from their DEADMALL + ROTHSTEIN EP which is out today.

Tennisboywill — “He Said, She Said”

Tennisboywill’s debut “He Said, She Said” single is a lighthearted ode to the simpler moments in life, when it’s all about who’s coming through and who’s rolling up. The low frill video features him and a young woman turning up against a pink backdrop, reflecting the fun and freedom of youth.
