Feature: This Week In Hip Hop — 21.10.16

Saturday, October 22, 2016

Welcome to our new weekly feature that will see us dive into what we're loving in hip hop this week.

21 Savage & Metro Boomin — 'No Heart'
'No Heart' is the latest single to come from the joint project by rising rapper (and 2016 XXL Freshman) 21 Savage and legendary producer Metro Boomin. The brand new video for the track sees both rappers chilling (and killin') in the trap as well as at a liquor store. Maybe Young Metro didn't trust the guys in the video and 21 had to shoot them, we'll never know. 

Migos — 'Pull Up'
I'm not going to lie, it took me a while to warm up to Migos — Quavo is out there appearing on verses everywhere, and their last single 'Bad & Boujee' (ft. Lil Uzi Vert) has been on constant repeat for a month (it still is). The trio of cousins from Atlanta are getting ready for the release of their album Culture, brand new single 'Pull Up' is set to appear on the LP. Trust me, you'll be saying 'pull up, hop out, shut up' in your head for hours.

Migos — 'Dat Way' (ft. Rich The Kid)
Just drop Culture already.

Travis Scott — 'Swang' (Rae Sremmurd remix)
La Flame dropped the remix on his .wav radio show on Apple Music. Though the original was already fire, Travis' verse is a nice addition. I still love when Swae Lee get's his vocals real high, I mean, I can't even do that. And Slim Jimmy, let's be real, you were never going to be a doctor. That lyric makes me laugh every time.

K Camp — 'Real Me' (ft. Young Dolph)
*insert fire emoji* 

Gucci Mane Wobtober
Never did I think that Gucci Mane was going to release one of the best albums of the year for 2016 (Danny Brown and YG are still at the top though). Apparently he doesn't drink or do drugs anymore, and it's working. His brand new free album Wobtober is the most surprising release of the year. Everybody Looking, the album he dropped in July, was pretty solid, Woptober is even better. The album also features production by Metro Boomin, Southside, Drummer Boy, Zaytoven and many others.
