10 New Songs For You to Check Out This Week

In case you haven’t heard this week was packed with hot new songs and EP’s. From getting bangers on the soundtrack for the new Marvel movie Black Panther – to Ravyn Lenae’s  EP Crush and more, the internet just keeps giving us hits. Here’s a list of what we thought was hot this week. Tune in next week for more.

Kendrick Lamar and the Vallejo prodigies SOB x RBE linked up to bring us some heat loaded with “Paramedic!” from the new Black Panther soundtrack. The song combines hyphy bars and LA trap and just goes hard.

East Coast rapper Brent Faiyaz’s new single “Make Luv” debuted last week. The songs heavy bass and Faiyaz’s melodic voice create a perfect blend of harmony that slaps. This R&B love song is sure to liven up your Friday night.

Freshly signed to 88rising, a creative management company, August 08’s “Funeral” debut song for his upcoming EP Father is a hit. Although the word funeral usually paints a lot of negative of imagery, however, LA based artist August 08 breathes new life to the word. “Don’t say it at my funeral” he sings, asking his audience to keep it real with one another and spread positivity.

Atlanta rappers Gunna and Young Thug gifted us with another banger “King Kong.” The song is a glimpse at Gunna’s new album Drip Season 3. The track starts with Thugga’s melodic vocals followed by some hard bars from Gunna. This fire track reminds us just why Atlanta’s such a hotspot for hip-hop and trap music right now.

Bay Area raised artist RAMIREZ dropped a fire new single “100 Bars and Gunnin”. The song pays homage to the gangster/thug persona but in a new and alternative way. Ramirez’s fast past rhythm and heavy bass reminds us why the bay area is home to some of the best rappers alive.

South Florida rapper OTTO dropped a hot new single “Down In The Hole”. This self-produced  track is driven by emotional and heartfelt rap-like bars.

If you’re looking for a more melodic and romantic song, we’ve got the perfect gem for you. “The Ways” by Khalid featuring Swae Lee is the slap to play for that special someone this Valentine’s Day. Another win for the Black Panther soundtrack.

Fresh off of Ravyn Lenae’s latest EP release Crush, The Night Song” is lucious. Lenae’s glossy vocals remind us why she’s here to stay!

Georgia native 6 dogs just released his new single “Buttcheeks”. The 18 year old has been on a roll with past releases “Flossing” and “Faygo Dreams”. Don’t be creeped out by the Donnie Darko-esque rabbit…

For the more alternative-underground rap lovers Los Angeles rapper Paris’ latest release “Reasons” is straight fire! The song is a perfect example of the new wave we’ve been seeing in the rap game. More rappers are bringing punk & emo vibes to the scene with more melodic vocals and alternative lyrics. As interesting as the sound is it will be even more interesting to see where these opening doors will lead.

Shruggs – Last Week ft. Wallah Umoja

 

This is an advanced listening of their second single of the year, “last week” written by wallah umoja & produced by shruggs dropping on Nov.15th, 2017

Wallah channels his aggression in a relentless flurry of bars that develop a portrait of a man’s psyche when amputating life’s dead weight. Shruggs provides the seasick backdrop to this mindset with rising and falling instrumentation. Together they manage to take you on a roller-coaster, dropping in & out of anxiety and a zen level of assurance.

The now Oakland-based label Left-N-Right Records celebrates the spirit of classic Bay Area Rap culture in an innovative way. Teaming up with the Label’s founder, Wallah Umoja, producer/DJ Shruggs displays a wide pallet of transcendental sounds, ranging from dark minor notes to bright futuristic synths on their first collaboration track “Last Week”. The other track is “Differences” Recorded, Written, and Produced by Wallah Umoja via the Left-N-Right Recordings. HQ located in Oakland, Ca. USA
