Feature: This Week In Hip Hop — 4.11.16

Friday, November 4, 2016

Happy Friday! Amy here again to share everything you need to know from the world of hip hop this week. Enjoy. 

New GUWOP + Quavo = 🔥
Okay, so if you saw my week one edition of this feature, I clearly have a bias for Gucci Mane and Quavo...but that aside, the track is fire. I wouldn't say this is Quavo's best ever feature, but Gucci owns the track. 2016 has been a massive year already for Gucci and I honestly think that his music is more lyrical than ever. 

Jeffery and Guwop Collab
Should I just call this feature 'This Week's Gucci Mane Updates'? In my defence, he's dropping new material left right and centre. The award for the most improved rapper of 2016 has to go to Young Thug without a doubt.

Skepta — 'No Security'
He may of cancelled his Australian tour :( but, I can't hate when he releases material like this. He's the current king of Grime and no one is coming for his crown anytime soon.

Lil Boat vs Soulja Boy, ummmm?
Tupac vs Biggie, Nas vs Jay-Z, Kanye vs 50 Cent...Lil Yachty vs Soulja Boy. Yep, 2016 is scrapping the bottom of the barrel. I mean, it's the beef no one asked for, but we're all secretly glad it happened. 

So to sum it up, Lil Boat messaged Soulja Boy about some Instagram model, Soulja then exposed Lil Boat on Instagram and then pretty much acted like a dick for approximatley 3 days. I mean, guys, there's enough Instagram girls for everyone, chill. 

Anyway, the whole thing just proved that Soulja Boy is just as washed up as ever and angry about his career...I mean, he did milk the whole thing for it's worth by posting sale links to his online store and music between his diss tweets, very suss. 

This is my favourite part of the whole beef:

Oh, and this one...

plus this:


Bonus Material: 21 Savage 
Watching 21 Savage explain his lyrics for Genius is probably the best thing you're going to see this week. Trust me 😂
