This week saw the release of new albums by Boldy James, Burna Boy, and Ho99o9 (all three of which you can read about in Notable Releases), as well as album announcements/lead singles from Drake and Nas, a guest-filled Black Noi$e album (with great Earl Sweatshirt and Danny Brown songs), and singles from Vic Mensa, Snoop Dogg, EarthGang, Chika, Anderson .Paak, Sa-Roc, Buddy, and more. Read on for those and more hip hop songs we posted this week...

DRAKE - "LAUGH NOW CRY LATER" (ft. LIL DURK)

Drake recently released a mixtape of non-album songs and he's been showing up on other people's songs lately, but now he released his own proper new single and said it's from his next proper album, Certified Lover Boy. It features Lil Durk and it finds Drake sing-rapping triumphant, horn-fueled production. It comes with a Dave Meyers-directed video that was filmed at Nike World Headquarters and features Drake getting his ass handed to him in one-on-ones against Kevin Durant, Odell Beckham Jr., and Marshawn Lynch.

VIC MENSA - "NO MORE TEAR DROPS"

After debuting it on the Lollapalooza livestream, Vic Mensa has now officially released his new single "No More Tear Drops." It fuses '70s psychedelic soul with modern-day rap, and it's a lyrically powerful protest song that resonates very strongly right now.

Snoop Dogg pays tribute to the late Nipsey Hussle one day ahead of what would've been his 35th birthday (August 15) with this gospel-tinged new song.

--

CHIKA - "MY POWER"

Jamie Foxx's new Netflix thriller Project Power features this new song by fast-rising rapper Chika. "My Power" finds Chika putting a fresh spin on the kind of soul sample-fueled rap that was big in the early Kanye era, and she makes it sound fresh.

--

ANDERSON .PAAK - "CUT EM IN" (ft. RICK ROSS)

Anderson .Paak, Rick Ross, and producer Hit-Boy team up on this bright, booming, and pretty irresistible new track.

--

SA-ROC - "DELIVERANCE"

--

BUDDY - "AIN'T SWEET" (ft. MATT OX)

Compton rapper Buddy has released a string of solid singles this year, and here's another one. It's melodic and lively and Buddy is in fine form on it.

--

SMINO - "BACKSTAGE PASS"

Smino is back with a new song that finds him in half-rapped, half-sung mode over a slowed-down sample of The Drums "Money."

--

SLEEPY HALLOW & SHEFF G - "TIP TOE"

Dua Lipa is releasing Club Future Nostalgia: The Remix Album, an album with guest-filled remixes of songs from this year's very fun Future Nostalgia. A Mark Ronson remix of "Physical" ft. Gwen Stefani is still forthcoming, but you can now hear The Blessed Madonna's remix of "Levitating," which features newly-added vocals by Madonna and Missy Elliott and is just as addictive as the original.

--

G PERICO - "TOOLIE" (PROD. GIRL TALK)

G Perico returns with another great dose of classic-style West Coast rap, this time produced by Girl Talk.

--

COUSIN STIZZ - "CROCODILE TEARSS" & "MAC RONI"

YOUNG DOLPH - RICH SLAVE

Rich Slave is an album that's very much made for these times. It finds Young Dolph looking at the experience of being Black in America and offering up critiques on racism and police brutality and other strong, powerful messages. It'd be an impactful album any year, but especially in a year that saw all 50 states take to the streets to protest against police brutality at once. And as serious as this album gets, it's not afraid to have a little fun too. Guests include Megan Thee Stallion, G Herbo, and Key Glock.
