This very stacked week for new music brought new rap albums from Denzel Curry, Latto, Buddy, and the late Phife Dawg, all of which you can read about in Notable Releases, plus there's the guest-filled Nigo album (ft. Tyler the Creator, A$AP Rocky, Clipse, Pusha T, Kid Cudi, A$AP Ferg & more), and I also recommend checking out the new LPs from Tha God Fahim and The Cool Kids. On top of that, we got new singles from Kid Cudi, Summer Walker/Cardi B, Chance the Rapper, Open Mike Eagle, Nicki Minaj, Bree Runway, Defcee, EST Gee & 42 Dugg, and more. Read on for all the hip hop we posted this week...

SUMMER WALKER - "NO LOVE" (EXTENDED VERSION ft. SZA & CARDI B)

Summer Walker and SZA's "No Love" was one of last year's best R&B songs, and now it gets a new extended version which starts with a newly-added verse from Cardi B, who goes full airy R&B on this one.

Open Mike Eagle is back with his first new single in a bit, and it features fellow underground rap icon R.A.P. Ferreira, as well as longtime collaborators Still Rift and Video Dave. It's a great indie-rap posse cut over a lush, hypnotic beat from Illingsworth.

--

NICKI MINAJ - "WE GO UP" (ft. FIVIO FOREIGN)

Nicki Minaj teams with Fivio Foreign for "We Go Up" and she sounds like she means business on this dark, tough, very New York song.

--

DEFCEE - "DUNK CONTEST"

Chicago underground rapper Defcee has shared a new track off his upcoming BoatHouse-produced album For All Debts Public and Private, and it finds him delivering bulletproof bars over an ominous beat from BoatHouse with a hook that references a handful of NBA icons.

EST GEE & 42 DUGG - "FREE THE SHINERS"

EST Gee and 42 Dugg, two rising rappers that are both signed to Yo Gotti's CMG label, will release a collaborative project, Last Ones Left, this year. The first single is "Free the Shiners," a tough, hard-hitting track that shows off a ton of chemistry between these two.

PUSHA T - "SPICY FISH DISS" (MCDONALD'S DISS TRACK, FOR ARBY'S)

This week in news you just can't make up, Arby's has tapped Pusha T to advertise their fish sandwich in the form a diss track against McDonald's' Filet-o-Fish. (Apparently Push did have a score to settle as he's said he wrote the "I'm lovin' it" jingle and was never credited.) "A little cube of fish from a clown is basic," Pusha T raps. King shit.
