This week in hip hop, we got the new Wiki & Navy Blue and YUNGMORPHEUS & Eyedress albums, both of which I reviewed in Notable Releases, and you can also head below for new albums from Curly Castro, DJ Muggs & CRIMEAPPLE, and Spillage Village's Benji. (Also check out new ones from Meek Mill, Lil Wayne & Rich The Kid, and Icewear Vezzo.) We also got new songs from The Alchemist/MAVI, Burna Boy/Polo G, Megan Thee Stallion, JPEGMAFIA, Wale/J Cole, and more. Read on for those and other rap and R&B songs we posted this week...

CURLY CASTRO - LITTLE ROBERT HUTTON

Curly Castro (who's one half of ShrapKnel with PremRock) has released a new album on billy woods' Backwoodz Studioz album, and it features billy woods, PremRock, Mr. Lif, Zilla Rocca, and more, plus production from Quelle Chris, Blueprint, and more. It's a loud, bold, eccentric rap album and I highly recommend it.

DJ MUGGS & CRIMEAPPLE - CARTAGENA

It's been a good year for DJ Muggs, who's produced entire albums for Flee Lord and Rome Streetz, and now he's produced an entire album for underground New York rapper CRIMEAPPLE, the followup to their 2019 collab LP Medallo. As on their last album, they've got great chemistry, and they know how to put a fresh spin on '90s-style New York rap. Guests include Stove God Cooks and RLX.

SKLAR GREY - "LAST ONE STANDING" (ft. POLO G, MOZZY & EMINEM)

Skylar Grey, Polo G, Mozzy, and Eminem have come together for a new song off the new Marvel movie Venom: Let There Be Carnage. It's as bombastic as you'd expect from a song written for a Marvel movie, but Polo G and Mozzy have been on fire lately, so it's got its moments.
