I've trailed to web to find you hip-hop that has been making waves. Sit back, relax and let us get your weekend started with some of the freshest hip hop tracks that have dropped this week.

Your Old Droog - 'Get The Paper' 

The Brooklyn MC spits lines about reading the newspaper and his daily activities over a sample of 'Pass The Mic' by the Beastie Boys. Lets hope that Your Old Droog has a tape in the works, as I can't wait for more.

Tracy T ft Boosie Badazz - 'Choppas'

Maybach Music's Tracy T has 2 projects in the making, including The Wolf On Streets 2 and Black Caesar. Produced by Childish Major (has produced for Future and Wiz Khalifa), 'Choppas' is a bouncy trap inspired track that is a guaranteed banger.

Oddisee ft Phonte - 'Requiem'

Oddisee here has created a track that references the dire current race and police brutality situation happening in the US right now. The tone is both dark and dismal, matching the message and theme of the song. 'Requiem' will be featured on Mello Music Group's upcoming compilation album Persona, due for release March 10th.

BADBADNOTGOOD X Ghostface Killah ft MF Doom - 'Ray Gun'

Sour Soul, the collaboration album between BADBADNOTGOOD and Ghostface Killah is high up there as one of the most anticipated albums of 2015. In conjunction with the collab album, Ghostface Killah has been busy in recent times having released both is solo album 36 Seasons and Wu-Tang's Better Tomorrow.

Audio Push ft OG Maco - 'Heavy'

Produced by Hit-boy, 'Heavy' is a song to watch out for. It beat's is a mix of both trap and industrial, and there is something demonic about it. The track was also produced by Hazebanga and Ducko McFli, and I love the way all three producers have twisted and varied the beat, it keeps things interesting. I'm looking forward to what Audio Push do next.
