No genre, no rules. Songs we love that we think you will too.
“Nuggets” / Mura Masa ft. Bonzai: Following releases with A$AP Rocky and Desiigner, Mura Masa is back again with another groovy hit. Bonzai floats atop a caribbean influenced beat, telling us over and over again “I got, I got nuggets.” Not sure what she means, but I guess we agree.
“Thug Life” / 21 Savage: Issa Album brings a melodic and vibrant sound that is quite foreign to the old 21 Savage- however, we can’t complain. “Thug Life” is a catchy, slow tune you need to bump.
“Labyrinth” / Toro y Moi: Toro y Moi is exceptionally good at creating minimalist music that fills up space. Labyrinth is a bouncy track off the recently release Boo Boo, a song that can complement any mood.
“Love is Only a Feeling” / Joey Bada$$: Following an extremely successful release in ALL-AMERIKKKAN BADA$$, Joey Bada$$ brings a smooth, melodic feel in his most recent track. The low-fi sample rings “Love is only a feeling,” as the New York rapper talks of and easygoing way of love.
“Lambo” / Cousin Stizz: Boston based rapper Cousin Stizz is back with a heater. “Lambo” and Stizz’s last track “Headlock,” which featured Offset, have been his most recent work since the 2016 project Monda.
“Did You See” - French Montana (remix): French Montana has been on a roll as of late, and this J HUS remix is nothing different. This collab brings about a PARTYNEXTDOOR / dancehall sound that is sure to make you move.
“Backboard” - Meek Mill ft. Young Thug: “Backboard” is a standout track on Meek Mill’s most recent package release, MEEKEND MU$IC. We get a taste of the old, incomprehensible Young Thug, contrary to a good portion of his latest album.
“Lit” / Steve Aoki ft. Yellow Claw, Gucci Mane, & T-Pain: So T-Pain, Gucci Mane, Steve Aoki, and Yellow Claw walk into a studio together…we’re not sure where this collab came from, but the four veterans made a certified banger. T-Payne kills the hook, which leads to a drop that is clearly influenced by Yellow Claw’s background in dubstep.
“Fake Denim” / Quinn XCII: The always-vibey Quinn XCII is back with a catchy Summer jam in “Fake Denim.” Quinn takes his classic light hearted approach to describe the ‘gold digger’ that dates Quinn for his fame rather than his fortune. The LA based artist exclaims, “No trust fund here / million plays no millionaire / But when you’re drunk and in despair, I’m the one to take out the venom.”
