16 New Rap Songs Out This Week

Jadakiss Me

Is everyone watching Rhythm + Flow? As I wrote in Notable Releases today: Will it actually create a new rap superstar? Who knows, but it’s fun TV.

Meanwhile, lots of good new hip hop came out this week. We got new projects from Homeboy Sandman, clipping., Gucci Mane, Smoke DZA/Benny the Butcher, and Black Moon, plus new songs from Jadakiss, Ghetto Sage (aka Noname, Smino, and Saba), Wiki, Gang Starr, Griselda, The Free Nationals/Chronixx, K Camp, and more. Read on for all the hip hop we posted on BV this week…

JADAKISS – “ME”

Jadakiss, who is a guest judge on the NYC episode of Rhythm + Flow, dropped a new single today called “Me,” which kinds Kiss asking questions like “who’s the most consistent?” and “who the girls love?” and the answer, of course, is “Me.” In other words, it’s a Jadakiss song.

WIKI – “FEE FI FO FUM” / “SMARTY JONES” (FEAT. CLEO REED)

Following the release of the Madlib-produced “Eggs” last month, and “Cheat Codes” earlier this year, Wiki is continuing to show off his creative production choices with these new singles. The first is the spacey “Fee Fi Fo Fum,” which shows Wiki rhyming over a hard-hitting, disorienting trap beat from Tony Seltzer. He then enlists fellow NYC artist Cleo Reed for the glitchy, psychedelic “Smarty Jones,” whose off-kilter, vibrant instrumental sounds as if it was pulled from the Ninja Tune roster.

GRISELDA – “DR. BIRD’S”

The Griselda Records crew (Benny the Butcher, Conway the Machine, Westside Gunn, and producer Daringer) have put their heads together for a new single, and it’s exactly the kind of psychedelic, throwback rap you expect from these guys.

SMOKE DZA, BENNY THE BUTCHER & PETE ROCK – STATUE OF LIMITATIONS EPZ

“Dr. Bird’s” isn’t the only Griselda-related project out today. Benny has a collaborative EP with Smoke DZA, produced by the legendary Pete Rock, which features Conway and WSG (and Styles P).

CLIPPING. – THERE EXISTED AN ADDICTION TO BLOOD

But wait, there’s more Benny the Butcher. He’s on the new clipping. album, which is out today and very worth hearing.

THE FREE NATIONALS – “ETERNAL LIGHT” (ft. CHRONIXX)

Anderson .Paak’s backing band The Free Nationals have been releasing a guest-filled series of singles since last year, as they gear up for a still-unannounced album, and the latest is the chilled-out “Eternal Light” with modern-day reggae great Chronixx.

K CAMP – “HOMECOMING FREESTYLE”

Atlanta rapper K Camp was supposed to perform at Prairie View A&M University’s homecoming this week, but he dropped out after students took to social media to say he wasn’t worthy of performing at their school. He responded with this freestyle over the instrumental to DaBaby’s “Intro,” and going by the strength of his bars on this thing, those PV students should be feeling pretty dumb right now.

SADA BABY – “SKUBARU”

Sada Baby continues to be one of the brightest new voices in Detroit rap. He’s a very prolific one too, and basically everything he’s dropped lately has been fire.

GUCCI MANE – WOPTOBER II

Gucci Mane’s Woptober II project is here in its entirety, featuring recent singles “Big Booty” (with Megan Thee Stallion), “Richer Than Errybody” (with DaBaby and YoungBoy Never Broke Again), and “Tootsies” (with Lil Baby), plus songs with Kevin Gates, Quavo, Offset, Peeway Longway, and more.

HOMEBOY SANDMAN – DUSTY

If you like underground, psychedelic rap, you’re gonna wanna hear the great new Homeboy Sandman album. The only guests are Quelle Chris and Your Old Droog (on the same song, “Lookout”), and otherwise Sandman handles everything himself and does a fine job of doing so.

BLACK MOON – RISE OF DA MOON

Brooklyn rap vets Black Moon are back, doing what they do best. Guests include Method Man, Smif-N-Wessun, Tek, and more.

SUDAN ARCHIVES – “GLORIOUS” (ft. D-EIGHT)

Genre-defying violinist/singer/songwriter/producer Sudan Archives has shared another song from her anticipated debut album Athena. “Glorious” ties together modern bass-heavy production, traditional-sounding strings, Sudan’s soaring, soulful vocals, and a rapped verse from D-Eight, and it all works.
