MONEYBAGG YO - "ALL DAT" (ft. MEGAN THEE STALLION)
The last time Moneybagg Yo and Megan Thee Stallion teamed up was when Megan tapped Moneybagg for "Make A Bag" off her 2018 album Tina Snow, and now they've reunited for this banger. "All Dat" reminds you how much chemistry these two have, and it comes with a video that stars Megan and Moneybagg living lavishly in a coastal mansion. For even more Megan Thee Stallion, the new video for "Big Booty" with Gucci Mane is out today too.
FRENCH MONTANA - "TWISTED" (ft. JUICY J, LOGIC, A$AP ROCKY)
French Montana continues to nab huge guests for the singles off his upcoming Montana, and this one's got Juicy J, Logic, and A$AP Rocky. It's got a very Juicy J hook, which also means it's a very fun song.
SMOKE DZA - "DRUG RAP" (ft. BENNY THE BUTCHER, prod. PETE ROCK)
Smoke DZA is releasing a new EP, Statute of Limitations, on October 18 via Cinematic, and it features all three Griselda Records rappers (Benny the Butcher, Conway the Machine, and Westside Gunn), as well as Styles P. Benny is on the new single "Drug Rap," and he and DZA sound great together over this menacing beat from the legendary Pete Rock.
GUCCI MANE - "TOOTSIES" (ft. LIL BABY)
Following the trunk-rattling "Big Booty" with Megan Thee Stallion, Gucci Mane offers up a more sedated song with Lil Baby.
DJ SHADOW - "“URGENT, IMPORTANT, PLEASE READ” (FT. ROCKWELL KNUCKLES. TEF POE, DAEMON)
Featuring St. Louis MCs Rockwell Knuckles and Tef Poe, plus Daemon. DJ Shadow's new single looks at our information-overload world, also set to a killer, paranoid beat. The track is from DJ Shadow's upcoming double album Our Pathetic Age.
HOMEBOY SANDMAN - "LOOKOUT" (ft. QUELLE CHRIS & YOUR OLD DROOG)
Homeboy Sandman has shared the second single off his upcoming album Dusty, and this one features Quelle Chris and Your Old Droog. All three have weirdo, underground styles, and they sound great together over "Lookout"'s psychedelic, synth-fueled beat.

Charlotte, NC rapper Mavi dropped his new album let the sun talk as one 32-minute track on Soundcloud, and it's got psychedelic, soulful production from Earl Sweatshirt (credited under his birth name Thebe Kgositsile), MIKE (under his DJ Blackpower guise), and others, and if you like those guys, you're probably gonna like this too.
