PUSHA T - "COMING HOME" (ft. MS. LAURYN HILL) & "SOCIPATH" (ft. KASH DOLL) (both prod. KANYE WEST)
Pusha T followed his great Kanye-produced DAYTONA with the Kanye-produced "Sociopath" earlier this week, and now he shared a second new song produced by 'Ye, "Coming Home," and making this one even more exciting, it features Ms. Lauryn Hill. As Stereogum points out, Push told Beats 1's Ebro Darden that he's gearing up for another Kanye-produced album with about nine new songs, due at some point in 2019. Stay tuned!
A$AP ROCKY - "BABUSHKA BOI"
A$AP Rocky is back with his first new single since being released from Swedish prison, and you can read more about it here.
G HERBO - "SUMMER IS CANCELLED"
Chicago rapper G Herbo teams with producer Harry Fraud for an impactful new song, "Summer Is Cancelled," which sounds like an update on the kind of booming, chest-puffed rap that dominated the radio in the early 2000s and sees Herbo addressing the the violence that fills his home city.
BIRDMAN & JUVENILE - "RIDE DAT" (ft. LIL WAYNE)
Former Hot Boys groupmates Lil Wayne and Juvenile have reunited on this new song, and if you miss the sounds of classic late '90s Cash Money, you're gonna wanna hear this.
OPEN MIKE EAGLE - "WHISKEY AND PUSH UPS"
Chicago rap label Closed Sessions is releasing the Closed Sessions Vol. 3 compilation in November, and it will feature this new Open Mike Eagle song, which sees him spitting mind-bending bars over an equally psychedelic beat. It also comes with a mini documentary on the song.
EARTHGANG - "UP"
Dreamville-signed Atlanta duo EarthGang are gearing up to release their new album Mirrorland, and it'll feature this new song "Up," which finds them sing-rapping in a very psychedelic way.
