Listen to Rita Ora's new single "Your Song."
Sticking to the plan, Rita Ora officially returns to the music scene today and releases her new single “Your Song.”
Co-written by Ed Sheehan, Rita had the following to say about the record... “Your Song has everything I wanted to express: it’s a song that’s full of positivity and about feeling on top of the world, like everything is going right and that’s where my life is right now. I loved working with Ed and Steve; it was incredible to really bring this idea to life with some of the most talented songwriters of our time. Ed and I have been friends since our teens, it’s brilliant to have the opportunity to collaborate with him for my first single, we definitely click creatively.”

I don't want to hear sad songs anymore
I only want to hear love songs

Only want to sing your song
Cause your song's got me feeling like I'm
I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love
Yeah, you know your song's got me feeling like that

Ramriddlz spreads the lust on this new joint.
Canada's own Ramriddlz comes through with a smooth one for all you low-key hopeless romantics out there. Over an uptempo, "melancholic" beat from Jaegen, Ramriddlz references one of the bestselling relationship guides out there, proving once and for all that men are from Mars and women are from Venus.

Amine calls on Kehlani for his new release "Heebiejeebies."
Amine continues to keep the new music coming. After hitting us with a remix to his track “Redmercedes” last week with Missy Elliott, the Portland artist decides to come through today and share a new single with Bay Area singer Kehlani called “Heebiejeebies.”
Produced by Jahaan Sweet, Amine said the track came together after a spontaneous meet-up with Kehlani during one of her LA studio sessions…“I walked in because I thought we were just meeting, you know just to have lunch or something. They were just like, ‘Do you wanna make a song?’ They played me that beat, and I started writing to it, and then [Kehlani] was in the room so she just jumped on it, and then it kinda just happened really naturally…. I didn’t come to the studio session with a laptop or anything, I just came with my phone in my hand. It was cool though.”
Available now on iTunes, stream the new duet record and let us know what you think.
You, you got so much potential
Every moment spent with you
I bet was always eventful
I've never seen your type of species
Give me heebiejeebies
Woah, and I’m like woah, woah, woah
Cousin Stizz links up with G-Eazy for the new leak "Neimans Barneys."
Cousin Stizz was originally supposed to release his One Night Only project earlier this month on May 12, but unfortunately it saw a set back due to some clearance issues. So to hold us over in the meantime, the Boston spitter is treating fans to a new single today called “Neimans Barneys,” which features Bay area rapper G-Eazy (who’s coming off the release of 5 songs himself this week).
Following up his Offset-featured single “Headlock” & “Jo Bros,” take a listen to the new release & let us know what you think. (Single available now on iTunes.)
Ever since I was a lad
I was out servin' the pack
I been addicted to cash
Runnin' it up like a track
Nine-fourteen hundred the bag
Gotta make sure that they mad
For all of 'em I was strugglin' bad
Boat is in the building.
In yesterday's interview with Zane Lowe, Lil Yachty made a key distinction between the dual nature of his personality. There was Lil Yachty, the loveable, emotional teenager, and Lil Boat, the one who knocks, the one who goes hard, the "rapper." Teenage Emotions seems to go heavy on the Yachty, but Boat does slide in from time to time, primarily on the album's opening quarter.
"Dirty Mouth" lives up to its name, with Boat getting crude as yell, as teenagers are sometimes known to do. While his flow isn't always refined, there's an impressive level of raw energy and wit in these bars, and Yachty makes sure we'll never look at Kirby in the same way again.
Uh, I never miss like I'm Curry
Yeah, can't eat that pussy if it's furry
My bitch pussy pink just like Kirby
My bitch suck it up just like Kirby
She drives whips like it's Kentucky Derby
Dave is most definitely on our radar.
Dave definitely caught our attention with his "Revenge" joint last month, and now the UK rapper is back with some new fire. "100M's" continues the 8-bit banger vibe Dave has been cultivating, and make no mistake - this beat slaps. Dave has been praised for his lyricism, which is on full display here, and he manages to namedrop Drake without actually namedropping Drake.
The second verse finds Dave unleashed, as he switches up the flow and kicks up some double time. He even throws in something for the geeks, referencing the video game series Kane And Lynch. Overall, Dave continues to impress and I for one would love an album from the young rapper ASAP.
Man them dreams of a mogul,
Don't you want Oscars and Grammys?
I came in the game with a plan but I got patience like Dr. Miami
Dead right I'm out and sat in a cabby
[??] I was looking like a tramp in an alley
If a man wants war, tell a man sure like Luke cause I'm sittin' in the back with a baddie
Twista is back, so pay homage.
Chi-town icon Twista just announced his brand new album, Crook County, and with it, a new single "Baddest." The up-tempo track is produced by Zaytoven, who has been undeniably killing the game these days. Zay comes through with a playful, chime-driven beat, busting out a synth string progressions reminiscent of some early Eminem production.
In an interview with XXL, Twista reflects on linking up with Cap. "Cap 1 was the inspiration behind ‘Baddest. He came up with the hook while we were chilling at Zay’s crib listening to a beat he was playing, and the song was totally spontaneous.”
I fuck with the baddest of bitches
Torso like a Coke bottle
I got one that say she like to make her throat gargle,
And then when she finish she gon' swallow
Try not to break your neck.
When you wake up to Gucci, Bryson Tiller, and Lil Yachty, you know it's going to be a good day for music. Tiller pulled a true boss move, releasing his album a month early to the surprise of his many fans. I know I'm still digesting the lengthy project, but "Blowing Smoke" jumped out as an immediate standout cut.
With an ominous, head banging beat, "Blowing Smoke" finds Bryson alternating between singing and rapping, riding the beat with a confident bravado. His penchant for infectious melodies is in full effect, but don't get it twisted - this isn't no pop shit. The beat is ice cold.
All at Cleveland Cavaliers, nigga
Thoroughbred, I’m a winner
D’USSE in my cup, I feel like Jigga
Wins got me hitting liquor “faded”
And I got you niggas feeling bitter “you mad”
Bitch, I been a heavy hitter
Better than the actual Met Gala.
We knew it was coming, but the impact of Droptopwop still hit with apocalyptic force. As Metro and Guwop teamed up to make a concise, excellent project, the task of selecting a standout track was indeed a difficult one. Yet something about the tense, menacing Met Gala commanded attention, especially once Offset's verse kicked in.
The Migos rhymer absolutely goes in over some classic Metro production, rapping for almost two minutes straight. The fire only spreads once Gucci slides in, switching up the vocal tone with a smooth, badass drawl. Does anybody really blend wit and pimpery as well as Guwop? Honestly, this album is pure flames, and Met Gala is only one of many dope joints. Do yourself a favor and stream this one immediately.
I'm headed to Paris to pick up a bag
And they treat me like one of the Jacksons
These niggas ain't trippin', they makin' transactions
A nigga rob you, you be practicing
Four bitches all tryna swallow this
I feel like I'm fightin' an octopus
The Pro Era rapper takes on two fan favorites from Kendrick Lamar's "DAMN."
"If I gotta rap on someone else's beat to get your attention / Then it's something that I gotta do" raps on his new freestyle, which uses not one but two beats from Kendrick Lamar's new LP DAMN. The instrumentals in question are "ELEMENT." and "DNA.," which both happen to be particular favorites among Kendrick's fanbase. In other words, Caution has a lot to live up to on this freestyle, but as a technically-focused rapper, they suit him well, and he's able to bring some new flows and ideas to the table that justify his remix.
The release follows his freestyle over XXXTENTACION's "Look At Me."
Caution was one of a few Pro Era members who tweeted the cryptic phrase "THE G.O.D" earlier this month. Could a new project be on the way?
They ain't think the Era had this in 'em
Adapt to the track cause the cat spit venom
Nah you ain't getting no 90's flow
But I been raw with the rap since '94
The debut 427 single from K Camp's artist.
If you've been following K Camp's recent output, you'll already be familiar with True Story Gee through his appearances on tracks like "Deserve It" and "For Playas Only." However, "Diamonds" marks Gee's debut single on Camp's 427/RARESOUND, once again pairing him with his protege. This time Gee is in the driver's seat while Camp plays passenger. The rapper has the same ability to craft catchy, concise hooks as his collaborator, and he's aided nicely with some ad-libs from Camp on this one. The song is set to appear on Gee's upcoming Shannon's Boy project, which should be out later this year.
I've been grindin' all week
7 days, no sleep
It get cold where I'm from
So I gotta keep the heat
You supposed to be right
You supposed to be sly
You supposed to be mine
I'mma focus on mine
Amine calls on Missy Elliott & AJ Tracey for the remix to "REDMERCEDES."
Amine exploded onto the music scene last year thanks to the success of his hit single “Caroline,” which has over 156 million views on Youtube. Having followed that up with another impressive release called “RedMercedes,” which fans compared to Missy Elliot’s “Work It” when it first came out earlier this year, the Portland, Oregon artist decides to come through today and share a fitting new remix to the record featuring non-other than Missy Elliott herself & London grime artist AJ Tracey.
Take a listen to the bouncy new remix and let us know what you think.
Got a new beam, new whip
Doors sit up like a face lift
Sub in my trunk go ape shit
Rims spinning ‘round like a space ship
Listen to "Break The System."
Brooklyn's own Issa Gold & AKTHESAVIOR, better known as The Underachievers just released their latest album, The Renaissance. The duo delayed the album originally slated for a February release to allow the hype to build around their release. Despite the delay the group dropped a number of songs off the album during the wait such as "Gotham Nights" and "Cobra Clutch."
Now with the entire EP out there are plenty of hits to go around. "Break The System" is a song made for our current society; where the poor stay as such, and mass incarceration remains the solution to societal problems. The Underachievers attack our systematic failings, but also address the trappings of the inner city. Mello's vocals on the song add depth and soul to a track, that already features strong lyricism and storytelling.
Tried to go to sleep and pray to god dude ain't dead
But he woke up to the homicide unit by his bed
Further in the story and he sitting in a jail
In a bunk with his father n*ggas made them share a cell
Is Rockie Fresh teasing a new project?
Rockie Fresh has blessed the internet with three tracks today.
Tracks "You & I" and "Love Is War" have defnitely placed Rockie's signature mellow delivery front and center. However, the pace switches up a bit with his "On The Moon" track featuring King Louie.
The cut, produced by Ism, comes with a bit more grit, a lot more conceit, and some lyrics that may hint at an upcoming project from Rockie Fresh.
The track's hook repeats the line, "just let 'em know I'm droping soon" throughout the song and serves as the anchor before "On The Moon" fades out in a string of ad-libs.
I'm wicked with the wrist
If I ever take a shot, no I won't ever miss.
If I'm fucking with that girl, just know she benefit
Bitches start to get annoying, lose they membership.
Listen to Rockie Fresh "You & I."
Rockie Fresh is on bit of a music binge today, dropping 3 songs to his Soundcloud. The Chicago native and MMG artist released, "Love Is War," "On The Moon," featuring King Louie, and "You & I."
"You & I" produced by Chris Batson has a classic Chicago sound when it comes to production. When Rockie begins to deliver his lyrics the Chicago sound is unmistakable. While spitting different lyrics, and possessing differentiating rhyme schemes there is no mistaking that this Rockie track sounds like Kayne West in his earlier days, especially when it comes to cadence and delivery. While there are some similarities, Rockie makes the song and delivery his own.
I don't really miss these days, but I miss that old brick road
I don't really miss no old hoes
I'm just really trying to reach new goals
Reach new heights, see things a young n*gga never did see
Listen to Bia "Badside."
The Perico Princess is back dropping another hot track. The Pharrell protege dropped two tracks today that worked in tandem "FUNGSHWAY" and "BADSIDE." Clearly Bia wants you to know mess up her vibe and you will certainly get the bad side.
Released under i am OTHER/RCA Records the Cardo produced track hits hard and and is perfect for summer drives with the windows down. Bia delivers on her lyrical content as well. She does an amazing job blending a mix of hard hitting lyrics with soft melodies over a hard hitting beat. She also profess her affinity for Rihanna throughout the song.
Cardo still trapping off an iPad
Screen dead broke we can see though
Why you still checking on my bag
Keep ya eyes on ya own c-notes
Listen to Secret Circle "Tube Socks."
Still a relatively new group, Secret Circle consisting of rappers Antwon, Wiki, and Lil Ugly Mane are back to drop some fresh music. Having formed last summer the group is barely a year old, although all members are veteran wordsmiths. Now the group drops a new track entitled "Tube Socks." Don't let the title fool you, this song is much deeper than a fashion statement.
All three members of Secret Circle sound well on the track together, as their cadences and rap voices all work in perfect cohesion on the record. The deep bass beat gives the song a darker tone, but for the better. It provides the track with its bounce, and ups the repeat factor.
Air Max's but the shorties say I'm croc daddy
I'm in Cabrio nephews throwing all the rocks at me
I just slide on the bus for the show out
Smoking mid on the bus finna blow out
Rich the Kid debuts "Ain't Ready," a new track from his upcoming mixtape "Rich Forever 3."
Rich the Kid has a gift for his fans on this glorious Friday: "Ain't Ready," a new song that features appearances from his Rich Forever Music disciples Famous Dex and Jay Critch and production from Boi-1da. Rich, Dex, and Jay look like they're ready to shoot up the Korangal Valley on the "Ain't Ready" cover, an image faithful to the track's modern, combative vibe.
"Ain't Ready" will appear on Rich Forever 3, which is tentatively slated to arrive on June 16th. Of course, Rich has always enjoyed a casual relationship with release dates, so keep your ear close to the digital streets for potential delays.
I cannot fuck with no busters
Half of these niggas be suckers
Get the bacon I tell them to truck it
Smoke the dope and you know I sold mustard
"Imagine dying for a nigga that won't even buy you a motherfucking cheeseburger."
Young Lito jumps on Tee Grizzley's "First Day Out" beat, and takes aim at his former friend Troy Ave. Over the course of seven minutes, Lito alternates between rapping and monologuing, airing out his grieviences with Troy. It seems as if everything Troy Ave related has to do with beef, and the Nupac rapper's shitlist expands, adding Young Lito to the ranks of Joe Budden and Mysonne.
Lito rides the beat well enough, and pulling no punches on his former boss. Check out the Instagram caption below for a TLDR version.
See the hustle I was blessed with
I make that money come back like my ex chick
Barely niggas sneak dissin' I don't stress shit
The homie see em though I bet he hear a tech spit
Liste to 24hrs "2 Much."
Atlanta singer 24hrs just dropped his new mixtapeNight Shift. The 8-track album is a follow-up to his March release March’s Not Open, and features production solely from Apex Martin.
The track "2 Much" is your classic R&B produced track, with a soft baseline and keys. 24hrs croons across the track and display the clever use of his autotunes. The song also features echoes and doubles from an unknown female singer, but is pivotal to the track as it helps give the song its distinct feel. This is certainly a track to listen to all the way through, if only for the amazing guitar rifts at the end.
Just did a show in Vermont
Twenty not fake, I’m just blunt
And Twenty flex just to flex
Like how she balling back
Blac Youngsta has some harsh words for Young Dolph on his new release "Birthday."
You had to figure it was only a matter of time. After turning himself into the Charlotte police earlier this week & being arrested in connection with the shooting of Young Dolph back in February, Black Youngsta decides to waste little time in sharing a new diss-record aimed at the Memphis rapper called “Birthday.”
Over the menacing beat from Tay Keith, Youngsta proclaims his innocence and goes hard at Dolph throughout the entire record, saying he shot up his own truck that night, has been talking to the FEDs, wouldn't perform with him because he was afraid of being robbed & a whole lot more. This some no holds barred shit right here from Youngsta.
Hit play and let us know what you think.

Tell 'em how we had a show together and you aint come in cause you thought I was gon’ rob you
