FUTURE - "WORST DAY"

--

FIVIO FOREIGN - "CITY OF GODS" (ft. KANYE WEST & ALICIA KEYS)

Brooklyn drill star Fivio Foreign has tapped Kanye West and Alicia Keys for a bombastic ode to NYC (that borrows elements of The Chainsmokers' "New York City"), and, especially with Alicia's involvement, it's hard not to compare this one to "Empire State of Mind." It's off Fivio's upcoming album B.I.B.L.E., due March 25 via Columbia.

MOZZY - "REAL ONES" (ft. RODDY RICCH)

PAUL WALL & TERMANOLOGY - "NO TOLERANCE" (ft. NEMS & FLY ANAKIN)

Houston rap vet Paul Wall and Boston rap vet Termanology hav teamed up for a collaborative song, which has a beat from Statik Selektah and guest verses from rising underground rapper Fly Anakin and long-running Brooklyn rapper Nems (who recently went viral). It's a head-nod-inducing, classic style posse cut.

FACTOR CHANDELIER - "SLEEP UPSIDE DOWN" (ft. OPEN MIKE EAGLE)

Veteran hip hop producer Factor Chandelier is gearing up to release Time Invested II, a sequel to his 2002 debut album Time Invested, which turns 20 this year, and the new single features Open Mike Eagle. Read more about it here.

FANA HUES - "WILD HORSES"

Fana Hues has announced a new project, flora + fana, due March 25 via Bright Antenna Records, and here's lead single "Wild Horses," which is a minimal, hypnotic neo-soul song (and not a Rolling Stones cover). Fana says, "'wild horses' is a sonic version of an old western film. The music has elements that sound like a train going down the tracks, and when I first heard it, I immediately saw a woman with all of her belongings staring out of the window at a barren desert passing by. Her eyes flooded with inner conflict. 'wild horses' is her story."

Curren$y and The Alchemist revealed that their new collaborative album Continuance will come out next week, and they've also put out this stoned, jazzy new single.

--

RAUW ALEJANDRO - "CAPRICHOSO"

Puerto Rican reggaeton singer Rauw Alejandro follows last year's great Vice Versa with new single "Caprichoso," which is powered by a trap-inspired beat from Jamaican producer Rvssian.

--

KALI - "UONU" (ft. YUNG BLEU)

Rising rapper Kali follows up recent hits "Do A Bitch" and "MMM MMM" with more of an airy, R&B-tinged song.

--

DÄLEK - "DECIMATION (DIS NATION)"

Industrial rap vets Dälek have announced a new album, Precipice, due April 29 via Ipecac, and lead single "Decimation (Dis Nation)" is as dark and abrasive as you'd hope.
