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. There was a torrent of videos released this week. Visuals dropped from Rick Ross and Drake, Post Malone, Freddie Gibbs, Maxo Kream and Megan Thee Stallion, Rapsody and Leikeli47, Blimes and Gab, Burna Boy, Swae Lee, and Bas and Earthgang. Future found himself in wildly different videos with FKA Twigs and Lil Baby. There were also singles from JPEGMAFIA as well as Denzel Curry and Slowthai. Here’s the best of the rest:

Wiz Khalifa Songs

Wiz Khalifa has dropped an album’s worth of music over the past two weeks. His ten songs range from the dreamy “Presidential Smoke” to a reflective freestyle over Common’s “I User To Love Her.” Check out Wiz’ SoundCloud page to hear all of his recent output.

Conway — “Vino D” Feat. Dave East, Jim Jones & El Camino

Earlier this week Conway dropped a single from his Look What I Became… project, which is out today. “Vino D” showcases the Griselda giant trading gritty bars with Dave East, Jim Jones and El Camino over a smooth JR Swiftz beat.

French Montana — “Suicide Doors” Feat. Gunna

French Montana gave a taste of what to expect from his forthcoming November album with “Suicide Doors,” a collaboration with Gunna where the two get flashy over some glitzy Harry Fraud-crafted synths.

Joyner Lucas — “ADHD”

Joyner Lucas is one of the craftier artists going right now. He’s been gradually dropping singles from his debut ADHD album, with no rhyme, reason, or release date for the project. “ADHD” is a melodic track almost in the realm of Juice WRLD’s downcast crooning, once again showcasing that the talented, ambitious lyricist is willing to try new things.

Roddy Ricch — “Cut These Demons Off” Feat. Sonic

It wasn’t long ago that this very site pegged Compton’s Roddy Ricch for rap stardom. He’ll be one step closer to that plateau after the release of his cleverly-titled Please Excuse Me For Being Antisocial album. His latest single “Cut These Demons Off” is a paranoid plea for peace of mind, as he longs to be delivered from negative energy over an 808-based production.

NLE Choppa — “ChopBloc Pt. 2” Feat. BlocBoy JB

Two of Memphis’ most vibrant personalities come together once again on “ChocBloc Pt. 2.” This time, the NLE Choppa and BlocBoy JB link over a haunting piano melody, where BlocBoy lets us know that their “bank account on Antetekoumpo” — even if he doesn’t pronounce the Greek Freak’s last name properly.

Von Pea — “Frenzy/Door Bell”

Von Pea offered up a double feature of videos from his urgently-titled City For Sale project. “Frenzy” shows Pea dropping a lyrical exercise over a bouncy beat with thick drums and a crazy hop. The beat for “Door Bell” shows off his chopping ability as well, and the colorful Mike Petrow-directed video matches the track’s wondrous vibes.

Don Trip — “Get It”

Don Trip’s They Don’t Love You album is here today. Earlier this week he dropped an ode to his grind on “Get It,” where he commandeers a spacey beat with chest-pumping affirmations like, “grind like I’m the only n—- livin’.”

Radamiz — “Fake Gucci”

Mogul Club MC Radamiz shows off his elastic flow and knack for imagery on “Fake Gucci,” the latest single from his upcoming Nothing Changes If Nothing Changes album. Radamiz told Billboard that “Fake Gucci” is “a song I’ve wanted to make my whole career.” Who knows what other musical milestones will be toppled come the album’s October 4th release date.

Molly Brazy — “Wood”

Molly Brazy shows off the power of phonetics on “Wood,” with a hook showing off the many contexts of “would” and “wood” as end rhyme. “Wood” is the lead single from the Detroit rhymer’s upcoming Built To Last album.
