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, there were new videos from Doja Cat and Pivot Gang. There were also singles from PJ, Isaiah Rashad, and Drake, who appeared on a song with Brazilian artist Kevin O Chris. Here’s the best of the rest:

Tory Lanez — “Jerry Sprunger” Feat. T-Pain

Tory Lanez dropped off the tracklist for his upcoming Chix Tape 5 mixtape along with a taste of what to expect with “Jerry Sprunger” featuring T-Pain. The two multi-talented artists engage in an autotune duet on the silky track that samples T-Pain’s memorable “I’m Sprung” single.

El Alfa — “Coronado” Feat. Lil Pump

Lil Pump offered up a fun verse to Latin rapper El Alfa’s exhilarating “Coronado” single. Pump is known for jumping on thumping 808’s bangers, but it looks like he’s down for trying new things.

Mozzy — “I’ll Never Tell Em Shit”

Mozzy starts off the video for “I’ll Never Tell Em Shit” with before-fame clips of him rapping. That footage is interspersed throughout the visual, adding sentimentality to his confessional track about the immense loss he’s suffered.

Asian Doll — “Stank Walk”

Asian Doll is biggin’ herself up on “Stank Walk,” where she commandeers an uptempo track to let us know every reason why she feels like she can walk with her nose in the air on mere mortals.

KSI — “Down Like That” Feat. Rick Ross, Lil Baby & S – X

How do you get Rick Ross and Lil Baby on a track together? One way: get your views up. Youtube star KSI recently tabbed the trap stars to lend a verse to his doleful “Down Like That” song.

Stunna 4 Vegas — “Boat 4 Vegas” Feat. Lil Yachty

On “Boat 4 Vegas,” Stunna 4 Vegas and Lil Yachty took turns dropping clever, braggadocious bars over a sparse Earlonthebeat production.

Azealia Banks — “Billionaire Bully”

Fresh off the heels of her (recently deleted) YUNGRAPUNXEL.II mixtape, Azealia Banks is back with more electronic-tinged hip-hop. On “Billionaire Bully,“ Banks is also in beat bully mode, rhyming with all of her chest about being “rap’s f*cking shero” and sounding like it on the mysterious production.

Yung Baby Tate — “CAMP”

Atlanta’s Yung Baby Tate offered up a preview of her upcoming CAMP album with the title track, a synth-driven, self-produced track where she proclaims “CAMP” is where “you can be who you wanna be.” What a place to be.

Reason — “Same Ol’ Shit”

Fans of Reason are awaiting his full TDE debut project. He said that he was getting “the ball rolling” on Instagram, and his “Same Ol’ Shit” single is a strong kickstart. The Cali rapper shows off his sharp lyricism over a hypnotic loop and knocking drums.

El Camino — “Stove Tops” Feat. 38 Spesh

El Camino and 38 Spesh pay homage to the engine of many a drug empire on “Stove Tops,” a single from the upcoming Elcamino 2 project. The two trade war stories over a gloomy, chopped guitar sample.

femdot. — “Rap City” Feat. Smino

Smino got up with Chicago rapper femdot. to pay homage to BET’s Rap City on a single from femdot.’s. Both rhymers try their damndest to outdo the other over a dreamy, progressive composition.

Lil Mosey — “Live This Wild”

XXL Freshman Lil Mosey drops off an ode to being a rap star on “Live This Wild,” where he declares himself “a hundred billion dollar child” then goes into detail about the kind of debauchery that lifestyle would breed.

Papoose — “Big Snitch”

The Tekashi 6ix9ine saga brought the “snitching” conversation to the forefront of rap this year. Papoose offered up his take on “Big Snitch,” a freestyle over Brooklyn rhymer Fivio Foreign’s “Big Drip.”
