This week, a quartet of strong duos delivered great records. J.I.D and J. Cole got their Twista on with “Off Deez,” while Tee Grizzley and Chance The Rapper implored downtrodden communities to “Wake Up” and embody the change that we all need. IDK and Denzel Curry seem to be on a collision course toward a collaboration project that will be undoubtedly fire, while Queens legends unite on Big Twins and Havoc’s reflective “Memories.”
Elsewhere, Earl Sweatshirt, Smino, and Lil Peep’s loved ones gave us tastes of what to expect from their new projects. In Smino’s case, he actually dropped Noir a day early. Check out all this and more best new hip-hop of the week below.
