RAVYN LENAE – “SKIN TIGHT” (ft. STEVE LACY)

Ravyn Lenae has teamed up with Steve Lacy for her first song in two years, and it’s a very cool dose of airy, woozy R&B.

IS GEE – “WHO HOTTER THAN GEE”

Louisville rapper EST Gee follows his big Bigger than life or death with a new single, and it’s a tough new song that proves Gee only gets better.

CONWAY THE MACHINE – “JOHN WOO FLICK” (ft. BENNY THE BUTCHER & WESTSIDE GUNN)

Conway the Machine continues to push back the release of his debut album Shady Records God does not make mistakes, which is now set to release on February 25. It will feature Lil Wayne, Jill Scott, Rick Ross, Beanie Sigel, and more, and it will also include this new single, which finds Conway teaming up with his Griselda bandmates Benny the Butcher and Westside Gunn. As is always the case when these three appear on the same track, this one goes strong.

NICKI MINAJ – “DO WE HAVE A PROBLEM?” (ft. LIL BABY)

Lil Baby is as much of a rising superstar today as Nicki Minaj was ten years ago, and they bring their respective generations together on this new song. Nicki oscillates between singing and hard rapping, and Baby blurs the line between the two, and both sound great. It’s a three-and-a-half-minute song with a nine-minute music video that doubles as a short film.

RZA – “SATURDAY AFTERNOON KUNG FU THEATER” (ft. DJ SCRATCH)

RZA has changed the name of their upcoming album from RZA vs. Bobby Digital at Saturday Afternoon Kung Fu Theater and he shared the title track, a collaboration with DJ Scratch, who worked on the entire album. “While the central theme of the album remains a lyrical battle between RZA and his alter-ego Bobby Digital, given that the project brings together two of New York’s hip-hop icons for their first official collaboration, we felt that the new title reflects the props DJ Scratch deserves as a record producer,” 36 Chambers product manager Judge Diggs told Pitchfork.

KING VON – “DON’T PLAY THIS” (ft. 21 SAVAGE)

Chicago rapper King Von was shot and killed aged 26 in 2020, just a week after releasing his smash debut album Welcome to O’Blockand now his estate is releasing a posthumous album, What it means to be king, March 4 via Only the Family/EMPIRE. It will include this relaxing song featuring 21 Savage.

MEGAN THEE STALLION – “FLAMIN’ HOTTIE”

To help promote Flamin’ Hot Cheetos and Flamin’ Hot Doritos, Hot Girl Meg released a song called “Flamin’ Hottie” (what else?) which is powered by an interpolation of “Push It” by Salt-N- Pepa.

$NOT – “DOJA” (ft. A$AP ROCKY)

Florida rapper $NOT releases new album, Ethereal, next week (3/11) via 300 Entertainment, and it features Kevin Abstract, Joey Bada$$, Juicy J, Trippie Redd, and more. It also includes this A$AP Rocky collaboration, “Doja”, which includes the line “I fucked this female dog named Doja Cat”. (In a since-deleted tweet, Doja Cat responded “who did you fuck with?”) It’s a brash dose of mosh-rap, and it’s the second time in the past week that Rocky has channeled his LONG.LIFE.A$AP vibration.

YG – “SCARY MONEY” (ft. J. COLE & MONEYBAGG YO)

YG has released their first single of 2022, and it’s a star-studded collaboration with J. Cole and Moneybagg Yo that finds the three rappers bringing out the best in each other over a pounding, piano-fueled beat.

G HERBO – “ON”

Not only is G Herbo on Saba’s new album dropping this week, but he also has his own tough, chest-blowing new track.

QUEEN NAIJA – “HATE OUR LOVE” (ft. BIG SEAN)

After releasing one of our favorite R&B songs of 2021, Queen Naija has another sweet and syrupy single and this one has a verse by Big Sean.

YO GOTTI – “COLD GANGSTA” (ft. 42 DUGG & EST GEE)

Memphis rap veteran Yo Gotti just released his new album CM10: free gameled by single “Cold Gangsta,” which finds him joined by two of rap’s brightest new voices: Detroit’s 42 Dugg and Louisville’s EST Gee, both of whom sound great on this track.

WAX TAILOR – “NO MORE MAGICAL” (ft. MICK JENKINS)

Veteran French trip-hop producer Wax Tailor teams up with Chicago rapper Mick Jenkins for a song that strikes the sweet spot between the sounds of both artists.

JUICE WLRD – “GO HARD 2.0” & “CIGARETTES”

Second posthumous album by the late emo-rap pioneer Juice WRLD Fight the demons was released in December, and now two more Juice songs have surfaced, “Go Hard 2.0” and “Cigarettes.” As seen in HBO’s new documentary on Juice, some great songs seemed to come out of this guy as if nothing were wrong, so it’s no surprise that these two short stories sound as complete as they do.

MYLES BULLEN – “ORDINARY MAGIC” (ft. BILLY WOODS)

Myles Bullen is a self-proclaimed “soft rap/art poet” artist from Portland, Maine and he just released his new album Mourning journeys via Fake Four Inc. Ahead of the release came this song with Billy Woods, which you can read more about here.

HOMEBOY SANDMAN – “THE ONLY CONSTANT”

Homeboy Sandman Follows “Keep That Same Energy” With Another Track From His Upcoming Illingsworth-Produced EP there in spirit (from 2/25 vis-à-vis Mello Music Group), and it finds Sandman delivering thoughtful bars against a relaxed, jazzy backdrop.

ANDY MORIN (DEATH GRIPS) & BACKXWASH – “Dig Yourself A Grave”

Andy Morin is probably best known as the keyboardist and co-producer of Death Grips, but he’s also a solo artist and he’s released a new song with Backxwash, whose abrasive industrial rap is very fitting for a Death Grips collaborator.

AESOP ROCK – THE RECYCLING BIN (BLOCKHEAD REMIXES)

After reuniting with Aesop Rock last year for the big collaborative album GarbologyBlockhead remixed three Aesop tracks that he does not have produce, giving them the Blockhead touch. They are radically different versions and very cool on their own.
