Felly delivers us a fire new track for his New Flavors series, "Fight The Feeling."
In anticipation for his upcoming project Wild Strawberries, Felly is delivering a new track every Wednesday for fans to enjoy. In his latest, "Fight The Feeling," the artist croons soulfully over a funky guitar beat that really drives.
About the track, Felly says "Fight the Feeling is the first track off a series we're gonna be running this summer called New Flavors. Basically I'll be dropping a new track every Wednesday up until the release of my new album Wild Strawberries. Bunch of prelude, fun joints that won't be on the album. I don't wanna say I'm on some 'y'all ain't ready' type shit by teasing all of these loose tracks up until the drop - but it's kinda like that."
Take a listen to his newest track right here.
F***** with my old girl
She don't think I'm any good
Got something to show the world
Before y'all think that I go hollywood
Check out the new track from Berner and Styles P.
Ahead of their joint album VIBES releasing June 23, Berner and Styles P drop their latest single from the album in "Table," featuring ScHoolboy Q.
The track has a very intimate feel to it, made stronger by the piano loop, sample, and soft bass throughout the track. The melodic beat allows Berner and Styles lyrics to shine through, as their deliveries are suited best for this type of tempo. Berner shared his thoughts on the meaning behind the song via email,
"Styles and I had just started working on the album, "Table" was the first concept I had in mind for the project. I was under crazy pressure to sign a big deal, and honestly it would of caused a lot of drama in my life. The weed game is nuts. At the same time I was doing some estate planning and tripped off of the fact you're basically betting on when your life will end and that's where the lyric 'They say I'm worth more dead then alive' came from."
Check it out.
Sheesh just a week ago everything was sweet
I'm losing close friends, money ain't sh*t, I'm sick of greed
I lit the weed, then I cracked the bottle
Will I see tomorrow

aylien has a brand new track for us called "Trust," premiering today on our site. The St. Louis native brings the cool, frustrated vibes to a track about how his lack of trust in his girl is taking over.
Jaylien said about the writing process for "Trust" that "[it] was inspired from a heated conversation I had with my woman while I was in the studio. She told me she could never trust me fully with her reasons why. Her reasons didn't make any sense & just frustrated me. So out of those emotions I cut my phone off, pulled up this track from XXYYXX that I had saved in my back pocket & the words just poured out."
The production by XXYYXX was also a dream that Jaylien managed to fulfill on this record. "I've been a fan of XXYYXX since 2012 when he dropped 'About You.' Then a couple years later when SZA made 'Child's Play' to that track, I felt that he should have more songs written on his production. It's very unique."
K$upreme drops some new music for fans, including new track "Expensive Sh*t."

Alongside the latest release he's also dropped two other songs, "Doin Sh*t" and "Ricardo" produced by ElMario X and David Morse, as well as WopOn daTrack (respectively.) For any K$upreme fan these new drops will be a welcomed gift to jam to until he drops some more music throughout the summer.

Dave East & Sos Mula link up for the new collab "Home Invasion."
Dave East fans have plenty to be happy about right now with the onslaught of new music he’s been rolling out over the past few days, and thankfully he doesn’t look to be slowing down either. After hitting us with tracks like “What Is The Hold Up,” “Loud Pack” with Tory Lanez & a remix to “Only One King” all within the past three days, the Harlem spitter decided to come through Tuesday night and share yet another new song with Sos Mula called “Home Invasion,” which was premiered via WSHH in visual form.

Larry June has been relatively quiet since he dropped off his 4 Deep No Sleep mixtape back on April 20th, but thankfully that drought ends here today. With the sequel to his Sock It To Me mixtape with Sledgren reportedly on the way (see tweet below), the rising Bay Area rapper decided to come through over the weekend & share a new song for fans called “Rock Band,” which we presume will see life on that project.
Take a listen as Larry calls out the fakes & raps about the “chopper sounding like a rock band” in this Sledgren & RMB Justize-produced cut. Thoughts?
Chopper sound like a rock band (God damn)
Made a million dollars off one hand
Chopper sound like a rock band (God damn, sock it to me)
Made a million dollars off one hand (God damn)
Ski Mask the Slump God returns with a new track "My Mind Snippet."
The atmospheric, grimy track has a banging beat that Ski Mask kills his vibe over. Produced by Natra Average, the new song finds Ski Mask going off in quick, creative flows that we don't always get to hear from him. The instrumental itself has a unique touch to it with some creative samples that have this scratching effect, going back and forth.
Undoubtedly an original, Ski Mask continues to release music consistently for his fans and his name only continues to get out there more and more. Take a listen to his newest track right here.
these niggas so ass, I bought them a seat cushion
niggas so sad, tryna be the shit like poopy pushin'
said these niggas cat, like they Chinese food
Get this man a Beamer.
Drayco McCoy continues his quest for ubiquity with his latest track "Bimmer," produced by Captain Crunch & OogieMane. Those who have been following McCoy know that the rapper is pretty set on continuing to drop singles at the moment, rather than an entire body of work. As a result, McCoy's latest drops have found the Indianapolis rapper experimenting with different styles and producers, proving himself quite the Jack of all Trades.
Dude really wants a Beamer, and who can blame him really? For now, enjoy this solid, lo-fi banger from one of Nap City's rising stars.
Heaters, heaters, you'll get third degree burns
Fuckin' with a squad full of very scary creatures
I can get you slaughtered for very very cheap sir
I know who to call if I really really need work
James Fauntleroy salutes the healing powers of weed on "Crying Upside Down."
James Fauntleroy, your favorite singer's favorite songwriter, periodically posts loose tracks to his SoundCloud. In February, he released the 6-trackDOJO EP. But usually it's just the trickle of high-grade loosies.
Fauntleroy's latest: "Crying Upside Down," a tribute to power of weed to lift him out of his melancholia. The production is slow, steady, and measured, proceeding at the reassured pace that one finds as he emerges from a depressive state.
When I smoke
The tears go
Frowning and crying upside down
Michael Da Vinci brings us a great new track, "Get Money."
The Chattanooga, Tennessee rapper brings us a fresh new song filled with clever references right and left. The type of lyricism that seems to be moving more and more out of the spotlight in today's industry. Undoubtedly talented, the up-and-comer takes a lot of inspiration from fellow Chattanooga rapper Isaiah Rashad who he made a track with back in 2013, called "Brad Jordan."
It's his first track in roughly nine months and hopefully it's a sign of more to come for the MC. The cadence and deliverance of his flow has a specific vibe that really fits the the Tennessee scene. Take a listen to his track here.
mikey d, master shredder if you ask me
all these ninjas some turtles they wanna cast me
PREMIERE: DJ E-Feezy teams up with Tory Lanez on "Baby."
Not to be confused with E-40's alter ego E-Feezable, DJ E-Feezy is a Miami luminary who showed off his network of powerful rap connections on his 2015 mixtape The Wolf of Wall Street. He teams up with Tory Lanez on his newest track "Baby," which he releases today in an HNHH premiere.
Produced by Smash David, Nick Fouryn, and E-Feezy, "Baby" appears ready to explode into a full-fledged club banger at any moment, but it never does, rather content to simmer at the balmy temperature of a The-Dream song c. 2008. Lanez is liquored up and ready for sex.
All this liquor in my cup doe
I don't give a fuck doe
When I leave the club doe
Knocking at your front door

Ro Ransom makes a return with the release of "Prettiest" featuring Jazz Cartier.
One of the dopest artists you haven't heard, Ro Ransom is finally back this morning after teasing a new record. It's been over a year (!) since his last release dropped, "Doppleganger," and even with that record, his releases have been few and far between. For whatever reason though, this feels like a pretty significant return for the S-Rank rapper, with a feature from Toronto's Prince of the city, Jazz Cartier. Although Ro has been lowkey doing his thing on the music blog scene for years now, it seems like a move from NYC to LA has helped spur new creativity and inspiration.
This new offering, in the vein of "See Me Fall" and its predecessor "Doppleganger," explores and experiments with a sound that is both dark and light. A bed of piano keys, swirling synths and spurts of static accommodate Ro's melodic vocals. Take a listen and let us know what you think.
Ro is currently prepping a new album for summer 2017 (fewf), Momentum. Stay tuned for that.
Kodak Black links up with his brother, John Wicks, for "Haiti."
Kodak isn't the only rapper in the family, and you better not sleep on his brother. For John Wicks' latest track, "Haiti" he brings a surprisingly smooth track that carries weight and emotion. The Rippaonthebeat produced instrumental has a low-key beach vibe to it that the two rappers carry undeniably well.
The track is the last off of John Wicks' latest project, Hell On Earth which features a number of SniperGang affiliates including Honcho Da Savage, Jack Boy, and Petho Burr among others. The total project runs 13 songs long and is quite thorough through out. Take a listen to the full tape here.
you ain't get into the loop. boy you lazy
she crazy, she wanna have my babies
if you pullin' out the scrap better spray it
now my brother on the track, we related
Gucci Mane & Chris Brown team up for the new club banger "Tone It Down."
Hot off this weekend’s performance at ATL’s Birthday Bash, where he brought out Migos, Lil Wayne & Nicki Minaj, Gucci Mane decides to return to the scene today & drop off a new single with Chris Brown called “Tone It Down,” which follows up the duo’s latest collab “Party.”
Going in over the flute-driven production from Hitmaka, aka Yung Berg, the club-ready record finds Breezy handling the hook duties & crooning about his ballin’ ways & stealing your bitch, while Gucci lays down some hard, rapid fire rhymes in the process.
Hit play and let us know what you think. New club hit? (Single available on iTunes)
Huh, pull up, fros up, with the door up
Chopper in the club, I don't care who show up

Put the jewelery that you rockin' for the kids Im a grown up
Sat courtside right next to the owner
Lookin so good, make his wife pick her phone up
Royce da 5'9" and Slaughterhouse deliver a 5.5-minute bloodbath.
Royce da 5'9"'s The Bar Exam 4 drops later today. After serving up a six-minute freestyle over Lupe Fiasco's "Mural" yesterday, he returns this morning with another appetizer before the feast arrives later today: "Chopping Block," a Nottz-produced five-and-a-half minute bloodbath that features the rest of his Slaughterhouse brethren: Joe Budden, Joell Ortiz and Kxng Crooked.
Check out "Chopping Block. Stream 28-track The Bar Exam 4.
It's the Ghost.
Styles P has blessed us with a mini EP of sorts, containing a trio of concise, Ghost-themed tracks - "Ghost Sick," "Ghost Shit," & "Ghost Ship." And while the runtime of each song may be short, fans know that it doesn't take Styles long to make an impression. The first, and my personal favorite, is "Ghost Sick," which features an odd, whimsical, and hard beat. It kind of sounds like something Dr. Dre might have flipped back in the early 2000s.
Styles absolutely bodies this track, reminding us that lyrics are still alive, sounding hungry as hell. It's cool to see these older rappers proving they can still spit fire, and while Styles clearly respects the new generation ("Ghost Ship" features the "Magnolia" instrumental), sometimes it's necessary to take it back to the D Block days.
Lyrics is not obsolete
Fuck about a choppa one shot, you in the doctor B,
Or the morgue dawg, fuckin' with a warlord
Ask the lord for a war with a bible and a sawed off
Royce bodies Lupe's instrumental.
With Royce Da 5'9" about to destroy rappers' careers with tomorrow's Bar Exam 4 drop, the Detroit legend has teased the project with the lengthy cut "C. Delores." On it, Royce goes in for five minutes over Lupe Fiasco's "Mural" instrumental, embracing the lo-fi aesthetic while he spits dense lyrical fire.
Fans will be pleased to know that this is Royce in pure mixtape mode, and with so many hot beats having dropped recently, one can only imagine the potential for greatness. His previous Bar Exam tapes have been certified dopeness, the fourth installment promises to continue that trend.
Go and toss that bitch into a dark lagoon
Go into the heart of the art form with a harpoon
They ain't skilled enough to stay in the field with us
You gon' have to retire me, there's only like four or five of you rappers who can actually inspire me
I be out here tellin' the truth
I should sign my autograph with a polygraph
Check out the new track.
Dave East wants you to know that Paranoia is coming so stop asking him. In anticipation for his album, East has continued to drop tracks this time dropping "Only One King" as part of his EastMix series.
The track is three-plus minutes of East doing what he does best; spitting authentic lyrics, with great wordplay that has become a staple for any Harlem MC. Dave rips the warped loop, traveling through bars about his early life and why he is the only king. Check out the new track.
I was broke 20 years straight trust I know what it feel like
I used to wake up with a real pipe
Xanny gonna make this a pill night
Something about it don't feel right
24hrs is back with his newest track "Twenty Did It Again."
With the release of his Night Shifts EP just over a month ago, and his colorful video for "What You Like" featuring Wiz Khalifa and Ty Dolla $ign still making the rounds, 24hrs brings us a fresh new track.
The banging tune is produced by James Royo and really brings out a seriously vibing atmosphere that is typical of the Atlanta native. The track is the first he's released since Night Shifts was put out, so hopefully it's indicative of some more music to come very soon. Till then take a listen to his latest track right here below.
I took her out of the Polo
Bought her some Mason Margielas
I think I did it again
I think I did it again
Key! returns once again with new track "Zombie."
The Atlanta artist continues to make waves with recent releases. Today he brings us "Zombie." A minimalist track that carries some serious weight. Key! is consistently successful at filling out his bumping tracks with smooth, trappy verses and a chorus that sways in and out with ease. In his latest track, produced by Sladedamonsta, he details a time when he might not have been acting like himself.
He continues to make big strides and get his name out there heavily in the Atlanta scene as well as the rest of the US. Undoubtedly he plans to release a slew of tracks as the summer continues to unfold.
I'm a zombie,
I was really geeked up
that was not me
K Camp drops off the new song "Racks Like This."
K Camp continues to roll out new music ahead of his upcoming RARE 2 mixtape. Following up last month’s freestyle over Playboi Carti's "Magnolia," the ATL crooner decides to come through today and share a new song for fans called “Racks Like This.”
Going in over the smooth production from Cash Clay Beats, K Camp brings the title to life & delivers an effortless ballad that finds him crooning about his love for money and how it’s easy to get women when you have lots of it. This one for the ladies. Hit play and let us know what you think.
