Hip-hop is moving as fast as ever. Luckily, we’re doing the work to put everything in one place for you. This week, there were new videos from Chance The Rapper and Trippie Redd. There were also songs from Jacques, Young Thug and Gunna, as well as Tee Grizzley and Saweetie. Both Maxo Kream and Juice WRLD decided to drop some bars for LA Lakers and Funk Flex, respectively. Here’s the best of the rest:
PnB Rock — “Fendi” Feat. Nicki Minaj & Murda Beatz
Nicki Minaj announced her retirement earlier this month, but it looks like she still has some verses in the pipeline. One of them is “Fendi,” where she matches PnB Rock’s rapid-fire harmonies with her own melodic verse in which she lets us know “my attitude is the baddest thing on me.”
Wiz Khalifa Tracks
Wiz’ torrent of September releases continued this week with three more songs. “Just Wanna Be Famous” is a luxurious ode to “family and legacy,” while “Tequila Shots In The Am” is a jazzy freestyle in which Wiz salutes “young n—-s with executive decisions.” You can hear more on his official Soundcloud page.
Retch — “On Me” Feat. Schoolboy Q
New Jersey’s Retch linked up with Schoolboy Q for “On Me,” an uptempo single where the two trade braggadocious verses over thumping 808s.
Lil Tecca — “Glo Up”
Lil Tecca is already on the cusp of stardom. This week, the 17-year-old released his latest track, the aptly-titled “Glo Up.” Tecca shows off his myriad melodic flows over a dreamy soundscape.
Homeboy Sandman — “Far Out”
Homeboy Sandman is releasing Dusty, his latest project, on October 18. Ironically, his latest single from the project is the dreamy “Far Out,” where he bigs up his out-of-this-world skills and weaves intricate rhymes from “the dossier of a recluse.”
Don Q — “Red Light“ Feat. Kollision
Don Q linked up with Quality Control’s Kollision for “Red Light,” where the two talented rhymers trade menacing bars over a dreary guitar riff.
Bishop Nehru — “I Miss”
Bishop Nehru shouts out the good ol’ days on “I Miss,” his latest #NehruvianTuesday drop. “I miss when every little thing used to go my way” he rhymed, undoubtedly speaking for us all.
Money Man — “Blind Man”
Just a week after releasing his Area 51 project, Atlanta-based rapper Money Man came back with “Blind Man,” where he croons some freeverse bars over a bluesy Yung Lan production.
Vegyn — “Nauseous / Devilish” Feat. Jpegmafia
London-based Electronic producer Vegyn enlisted JPEGMAFIA to drop some bars on “Nauseous / Devilish,” a percussion-heavy composition from Vegyn’s upcoming Only Diamonds Cut Diamonds album.
Radamiz — “Fake Gucci”
Earlier this week, Brooklyn’s Radamiz dropped the video for “Fake Gucci,” the smooth Statik Selektah-laced single from his Nothing Changes If Nothing Changes album which is coming next Friday.
