Lil Gotit — “Tellin Ya” Feat. Lil PJ

Marlon Craft — “Hoodie Weather”
Marlon Craft spoke to the moment in two fashions on “Hoodie Weather,” the second single from his upcoming album. Yes, it’s almost November, but Marlon’s also referencing a hoodie as an ode to Trayvon Martin while noting, “Still word to Trayvon, our hoodies gon’ stay on.”
NoCap — “I Can’t”
Changing for the better is easier said than done for Alabama rapper NoCap on “I Can’t,” a track where he’s partially remorseful over evocative production but also laments being in an environment where “n***s around me, trappin’ for some Jordans.”
Q Da Fool — Dope On A Spoon
PG Country rapper Q Da Fool is back with his Dope On A Spoon album. The 13-track project focuses on exactly what the title suggests. Q gives his growing fanbase another glimpse of flashy, fiery rhymes over thumping production, The project boasts features from Peewee Longway and Mulatto, who shows up on the frenetic “Gotta Go Get It.”
Rahli — “Do Dirt Alone” Feat. Kevin Gates
Kevin Gates offered a gritty verse to the remix of St. Louis rapper Rahii’s “Do Dirt Alone” project. He offsets Rahii’s steely whisper with his gruff Baton Rouge baritone, telling enemies “I can see your heartbeat, where your game face at?”
Rucci & ALLBLACK — “Okay Doeee”
Rucci and ALLBLACK are “bout a bank roll” on “Okay Doeee,” a bouncy single from Rucci’s recently released Midget album. They paired the track with a video that intersperses scenes of them being interrogated and in jail (no fun) with them rapping around wads of money, some drinks, and beautiful women (a lot more fun).
WhoHeem Feat. Tyga & Lil Mosey
WhoHeem’s “Let’s Link” has been a viral TikTok hit for some time. He just released a remix to the in-demand track with Lil Mosey and Tyga, who offered a pair of flirty verses to match WhoHeem’s desire to “treat you like you monarchy.”
YFN Lucci — “Sept. 7th”
Apparently, September 7th is a day of infamy in YFN Lucci’s life, as he explores on his latest single. He pours his heart out over a sullen instrumental, bemoaning a fall out with a fake friend, and letting us know “if you thug how we thug then I know what you been through.”
