Despite the obnoxious repetition of “Work,” the song was a hit. It spent nine consecutive weeks at #1 before Desiigner’s “Panda” took over this week. What a lot of people probably don’t know about “Work” is that PARTYNEXTDOOR co-wrote the song with Rihanna. Today, PND dropped an unreleased version of the song featuring an alternate verse from Drake. Give it a listen below and tell us which you like more.
What a month it’s been. New music from all sorts of people, Mick Jenkins, Lil Yachty, Drake and Action Bronson to name a few. We also got a new album from ASAP Ferg and Drake’s Views From The 6 is coming out in the next 3 days. What a time to be alive. The playlist below has sounds from all the big names of the month and some new names that you might not know. Spanning from Appleby, the mysterious Chicago artist who has yet to show his face, and I’m willing to bet you haven’t heard before, to “All The Way Up” by Fat Joe (yeah that rapper from 2006). Give it a listen below, you won’t be disappointed.
Mick Jenkins’ official DJ, greenSLLIME, dropped a 4-track tape earlier today with a hot feature from Mr Jenkins himself. “Zoo” ft. Mick Jenkins is an slow, eery, banger. DJ greenSLLIME even takes a verse and knocks it out of the park. These two working so well together just goes to show that Chicago knows what’s up. Check out “Zoo” ft. Mick Jenkins below.
All I wanna hear is grime. American hip hop/ rap can take a backseat because Stormzy, Skepta and a plethora of other UK artists are the future. The other day Stormzy hit the inter webs with a tough new song/video titled “Scary.” The UK spitter always comes correct with the aggressive bars that sound like he might snap at any second and turn words to actions. Check it out for yourself below.
There’s just 5 days left before the release of this years most anticipated project, Drake’s Views From The 6. Today the 6 god dropped off the official artwork for the album. Check out little Drake posted up on that famous building in Toronto. Slightly reminiscent of J.Cole’s 2014 Summer Hills Drive cover. Check it out above and get ready for Views.
