GloRilla shut down the streets with her single “Tomorrow,” and now she’s tapping Cardi B for the official remix.

After teasing the track earlier in the week, the Grammy-winning rapper joins the Memphis MC on the remix of his buzzy track titled “Tomorrow 2,” which arrives with a video. Cardi takes the opportunity to show off on her gritty verse.

“She says she’s my opp, but I don’t know her, I had to look for her,” she raps. “I know I’m rich, but I can’t help being so f**k / Been on these bitches’ necks so long / Sometimes my foot gets stuck.”

GloRilla comes in with the resounding hook: “I can get hurt today, I don’t care tomorrow… Everyday the sun won’t shine, but that’s why I love tomorrow.”

It’s Cardi’s first music since her single “Hot Shit” with Kanye West and Lil Durk in July. She recently hinted at more music to come.

“Thinking they’re doing something while something BIGGER is falling on their necks…this is just the beginning,” she tweeted.

GloRilla is fresh off the charts of his summer hit “FNF (Let’s Go)”, which became his first No. 1 on Billboard’s Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart and landed him a deal with CMG Records from Yo Gotti.

STAX GMO

Looks like : The hunger and drive of a first draft pick rapping fervently about life in the fast lane

For fans of: Tee Grizzley, G Herbo and teen Lil Wayne

Madison Falconer/@mattrollthatback

Why should you pay attention: For such a young artist, GMO Stax has many lifetimes of experience behind him. His songs are filled with dense imagery and careful detail delivered in a measured cadence that exudes a hunger and intensity that far exceeds his 18 years. Her 2021 single “Lockdown” is a gripping tale of what it takes to survive — from ski masks in the back seats of cars to dodging would-be snitches — every day around the corners of her native Detroit. “It’s just things I go through and go through,” GMO says. “It’s a life experience, for real. Not everyone is good with storytelling, but it was just something that was inside me. These fascinating stories are all over GMO’s 2021 album America’s Youngest Pit. The video for “Back From the Dead”, whose Pooh Shiesty-assisted remix features on this album, has, to date, 1 million views on YouTube. The teenage blacksmith acknowledges that Detroit has its eyes on her right now. And he intends to prove that his youth and his experience keep him all the more in tune with what is bubbling in the streets.

He says: “I think what sets me apart – I started young, you know? I feel like no one has gone through what I went through. I just had a story to tell earlier than everyone, you know?

Listen for yourself: “By the Gun” is a heartbreaking style hit with an aggressive trap tempo, screaming synths, booming 808s and real talk of karma.

CHALMAIN THE GOD

Looks like : The chic soul of Motown embodied in a demure rapper with a penchant for thoughtful, sweet-sounding bops

For fans of: Megan Thee Stallion, Lil Kim and the contemplative Cardi B

Why should you pay attention: Chalmaine the God is the epitome of a survivor. Raised in crime-ridden east Detroit, the single mother of three sings that she was sexually abused at the age of seven by a family member and lost his father and his cousin following a murder in “Chalmaine”. To heal her trauma, she picked up the pen at age 13 and hasn’t put it down since. His beginnings, Maine’s Reason, is a heartfelt collection of ballads, bangers and introspective gems heralding a fully formed MC representing Detroit to the fullest. Boasting a smooth but no less emotional flow, virtually every bar Chalmaine spits conveys authenticity and reveals his inspirational journey.

She says: “I really went through everything I talked about in my music. It’s not faked; my story isn’t made up. A lot of people there [are] like me, hiding behind aggression, abuse, peer pressure. I am an open book. I don’t mind talking about it because it’s part of my breakthrough. It’s a part of overcoming things and becoming who I am and pushing my music. Maybe I can help one or two people. But I know that when they hear a song like “Chalmaine”, it can relieve a lot of people who are holding things back. »

Listen for yourself: “Tap In” is a two-step anthem about staying true, all deep bass and ’80s-inspired synths anchored by Chalmaine’s crisp, confident delivery.

RiskTaker D-Boy

RISK TAKER D-BOY

Looks like : A battle-tested hustler with a biting sense of humor

For fans of: Rick Ross, Beanie Siegel and Benny the Butcher

Why should you pay attention: Detroit Risktaker D-Boy specializes in high-key motivational music that gives you poignant insight into his struggles, aspirations, and how he coped in the mud. But he’s also got the humor of a seasoned stand-up comedian: On his 2021 cut “2am witt antt,” he chuckles, “I beat so much on a brick that shit should be abused / I’ve fucked with them Blues, they’ll never have a clue. That sets Risktaker apart from the jaded coke rappers who only hustle on social media. The 31-year-old lyricist, whose song “Take Risk” was released last fall and already has 213,598 Spotify streams, is not just a virtual presence; he’s put in his fair share of outside work.”I’ve been through a lot, bro,” he says. I might have hit the road, driven somewhere without a license, and the plate expired – everything. You feel me? It’s over if they arrest me. Before, I was really wild.

He says: “When you make music and you start making people feel like they can relate to you, people feel like they know you – it’s never met you. Because you’re talking about This shit they’re going through. This is real life. Everybody’s going through the same shit. As crazy as it sounds, I don’t think about people when I’m making songs; I think about myself – what I’m crosses over. And it’s just crazy that it concerns so many people.

Listen for yourself: “Switches” is a grind-till-you-die anthem driven by hypnotic keys and a titanic 808 thump.

Kookei

KOOKEI

Looks like : A punchline-loving evil genius has absorbed Netflix’s entire ‘Horror’ category by osmosis

For fans of: Eminem, Draeko the Sovereign and the Yin Yang Twins of the “Whisper” Era

Why should you pay attention: For a rapper with some of the toughest, goriest bars, Kookei has a ridiculously “sweet” name. The Detroit native, whose sweets evoke pseudonym was inspired by a childhood stint as a bake sale maven, raps in a hushed, almost joking tone, which makes his lyrics dark – about pissing on opposition graves, when ‘they don’t outright blow their heads off – seem both seductive and scary. Inspired by the carnage-heavy one-liners of early Eminems, Kookei decided two years ago to turn himself into a rapper. After posting a few loosies on YouTube, he posted Psychopath, his excellent debut – with 20 macabre but melodious songs – earlier this year. No need to have a cast iron stomach to digest it: Psychopath is fun, provocative and wildly inventive. “A lot of things you can’t take seriously. You gotta laugh at this shit,” he said. “It’s just me. And I’m high as hell.

He says: “I just dropped a little video and put the words in it. It’s called ‘Chris Brown.’ He made a hundred K’s in two weeks – it had the words on it. But I did it because It’s so many metaphors, I just knew it was going to go over people’s heads. I’m gonna start doing it from now on, though. Because I know it’s kinda hard. I’m not gonna not lie: a lot of things I say, I only realize later. I will listen to it again.

Listen for yourself: “Straight Jacket Flow” is a bonkers bombardment of swag and dark bars worthy of any skull emoji.

JaiFive

TandBFilms/Youtube

JAIVE

Looks like : A windy summer party you have to go through a metal detector to attend

For fans of: Jeremih, Ty Dolla $ign and Drake around more life

Why should you pay attention: JaiFive creates lush, impeccably produced atmospheric songs with big, tasteful hooks that split the difference between bedtime ballads and block-approved trap mantras. Indeed, the artwork for the Detroit native’s 2021 song “Pack Heat,” is an uzi with a rose sprouting from its barrel — there’s no clear distinction between ardor and lust. anguish of the streets in the world of JaiFive. He had a difficult upbringing, became poor – with seven siblings – squatting in houses and even briefly running with neighborhood gangs. It makes sense that the former high school athlete sought multiple ways to express his passions and pains. JaiFive’s single “Tell Me You Get It” is a hypnotic hit in the making, dedicated to deliberate compromise. It leans more towards R&B, perhaps, because the melodic frequencies open up more possibilities for conveying raw emotion. The multi-hyphenate seeks to draw listeners in with its smooth inflections and expressive lyrics.

He says: “If you can get a crowd or a person to play with your song, emotionally, then I feel like you have that person. Because a lot of people relate through tone, you know.

Listen for yourself: “Tell Me You Got It” is a rose petal-approved slow fire to the door, with a soft, soaring chorus that speaks of ecstasy.

The Twitter troll told the Miami native to “shut up” about football and “make better music.”

The announcement comes after fans said his colleague city ​​girl, JT, is the best rapper as fans keep comparing them to each other.

It may have been a long time coming. The City Girls haven’t performed together on any recent songs such as Nicki Minaj “Super Freaky Girl Queen Mix,” and hitkidd and Glorille “FNF” Remix (which also has an unreleased verse by Saweetie).

Both songs only appeared JT.

Yung Miami has also been busy hosting his podcast, caresha pleaseon TV revolt, possessed by his mysterious boo Didi.

Fans will have to wait and see if this is real since artists have been known to hint at retiring from music only to later change their minds.

YungMiami isn’t the only one talking about retirement.

Earlier this summer, “Tha Dogg Pound” rapper Daz Dillinger posted a video showing his retirement life.

In the video, the Grammy-nominated rapper showed his fans around the new Atlanta studio.

Some houses will be decorated and a large empty lot will be built in the future.

In other words, people will have disagreements. Sometimes the issues can be big or even escalate into physical fights while others can be minor and resolved through conversation. Egos play a huge role in many hip-hop jams and it’s what can make them go on for years when they could have been finished in days. Hip-hop has a bad reputation for jamming out of control, when in reality most of them don’t really turn into anything or end peacefully. In many jams that have been put to rest, the parties have let the past slip away, with some even heading to the studio to make a song together. Here, XXL features some of the songs of old haters of rap that were truly unexpected.

Jay-Z and Nas have been embroiled in one of the most vicious rap jams of all time. Each hurled personal insults at the other on songs, on stage, in interviews and wherever else it could be done. The beef ran for nearly nine years, starting in 1996, culminating in 2001, with Jay’s “Takeover” and Nas’ “Ether,” then officially laying to rest in 2005. Jay handing the olive branch to Nas on stage was quite shocking. The two dropping “Black Republican” together the following year, a Nas song that featured Jay, was equally surprising.

Almost every rap fan has heard of the Drake and Meek Mill beef, which launched in 2015, because Meek accused Drake of having a ghostwriter. The story took endless twists, including the ghostwriter, Quentin Miller, who was exposed and a number of diss tracks were released between Drake (“Back 2 Back”) and Meek (“War Pain”). After Meek got out of prison in 2018 for a parole violation, the two buried the hatchet. Drake had Meek as a special guest at his concert in September 2018, and then Drake was featured on Meek’s January 2019 single, “Going Bad.” That such a long jam ends with a song and a performance is wonderful, especially considering the two were friends before all of this.

Check out the list below for more post-beef rap collaborations.

  • “Ready for War”

    Rick Ross and Jeezy

    After a beef that began in 2010, due to some perceived slights on wax and culminated in a full-fledged brawl at the BET Awards in 2012, Rick Ross and Jeezy officially ended their beef in 2014. Ross’ single “War Ready” marked this event. “cut his Brain album that features Jeezy and Tracy T. The former adversaries have collaborated in the past, but this was a little different; it’s been peace between the two ever since. With the popularity of these artists in rap, it seemed unlikely that they would end it, but time heals everything.

  • “Expressway”

    Eminem and Royce 5’9″ (Evil Meets Evil)

    Friends since 1997 and working together as the duo Bad Meets Evil since 1998, Eminem and 5’9″ Royce have previously had a falling out over the latter’s issues with Em’s rap group D12. The beef was reportedly mostly attributed to Em and Royce’s relationship changing as their careers developed and Em spent time pushing D12. Royce and D12 traded diss songs, but the beef ended in 2006, shortly before Proof, a member of D12 and Em’s right-hand man, died in a bar shootout.In 2008, Royce was back on show with Em and D12, all leading up to Em and Royce’s collaboration EP in 2011, Hell: the sequel. This project was their first (and only) effort together, its first single being the song “Fast Lane”. It took a while, but they teamed up.

  • “Money in the Grave”

    Drake and Rick Ross

    Rick Ross and Drake have been friends and frequent collaborators since 2010, but hit a snag in 2015, due to Drake’s jamming with Meek Mill, who at the time was signed to Ross’ Maybach Music Group (MMG). Things escalated to the point that they had a falling out, with Ross doing it on “Color Money” in 2015, and Drake also firing shots on “Weston Road Flows” in 2016. They crushed him in 2017 , with Meek and Drake doing things publicly. in 2018. In June 2019, Drake released a two-song EP, The best package in the world, to celebrate the victory of the Toronto Raptors in the NBA championship. One of the songs was “Money In The Grave”, the first collaboration between Drake and Ross since they buried the hatchet. Totally out of the blue, it was a pleasant surprise.

  • “It’s going badly”

    Meek Mill and Drake

    A long-running and well-known beef that started in 2015 was Meek Mill vs. Drake. Meek accused Drake of having a ghostwriter, and the war of words resulted in diss tracks including Drake’s “Back To Back” and Meek’s “War Pain,” years of underhand dissension and fractured relationships in outside of themselves, namely MMG frontman Rick Ross and Drake not having a good relationship for some time. When Meek was released from prison in April 2018, after serving five months for a high-profile parole violation, cooler heads prevailed. Meek and Drake officially ended the beef in Boston, during a September 2018 stop on the Drake & The Three Amigos Tour, then teamed up on Meek’s single “Going Bad” in January 2019. The former friends picked up where they left off. With how personal the beef has become, it was a shock that they wrapped it up and made a new song together.

  • “Black Republican”

    Jay Z and Nas

    In what is arguably the most popular rap jam of all time, Nas and Jay-Z exchanged gunfire starting in 1996. At first glance, it looked like a lighthearted competition spiraling out of control. “Takeover,” Jay-Z’s song he performed live at Hot 97’s Summer Jam in 2001, and “Ether,” Nas’ scathing response, were the results of their feud. In these dissertations, everything was covered, from questioning Nas’ musical consistency to Jay-Z’s physical appearance and talent compared to his Roc-A-Fella Records signers like Beanie Sigel and more. The disses were pretty much two people who knew each other well, but had always been at odds. Jay-Z’s sequel diss “Super Ugly,” on which he bluntly says he had sex with Nas’ then-girlfriend Carmen Bryan while Nas was with her, meant the gloves were officially on. removed. They officially killed the beef in 2005 at Jay-Z’s I Declare War concert, where he actually ended his wars rather than perpetuating them. In 2006, they released their very first collaboration, “Black Republican”, “a song from Nas hip hop is dead. No one saw it coming because it looked like an ox that would never end.

  • “Who”

    Future and young thug

    Being close friends now feels like their pasts as adversaries were made up, but Future and Young Thug were a bit at odds. As two highly influential rappers from Atlanta, they were close and had a common producer in a then burgeoning Metro Boomin. In 2015, Metro tweeted about rappers trying to produce projects like Future; Thug got offended and asked for clarification right there. This escalated into Future and Thug sub-tweeting each other and Metro telling Thug to stop on him. This continued into 2016, with Thug and Future going back and forth on Twitter without saying each other’s names. There was a lot of fighting on the chest about who was the best music and who was the most talented. However, the negativity ended in June 2016 when they collaborated on “Who”, a cut from DJ Esco’s project. HEY. Thug even apologized online the same year. Even more surprisingly, Thug and Future actually released a collaboration album the following year, the cult favorite known as super viscous.

  • “Too late”

    French Montana and Jim Jones

    Tangled in a jam since 2005, French Montana and Max B had a lingering issue with Dipset’s own Jim Jones. Originally from Max B having a business falling out with Jim – Max was once on Jones’ rap team, Byrdgang – the two argued over songs and in interviews. It continued to escalate even when Max was imprisoned for conspiracy in 2009. French was Max’s friend and frequent collaborator when the beef with Jim was happening, so he was directly connected and riding for him. It all ended in December 2020, when French and Jim took to Instagram Live to call a truce, simply feeling the issue had gone on too long. The two also collaborated on “Too Late”, a track from French Montana’s CB5 mixtape from this November, shortly before they spoke on Instagram. The length of this jam made it unlikely that common ground would ever be found.

  • “Real People”

    icicle and common

    Common, the highly respected lyric rapper from Chicago, got his big break in 1994 when he released his single “I Used To Love HER”, a song in which he personifies hip-hop as a woman. Ice Cube, then a rising West Coast rap star, didn’t like Common’s bars on gangsta rap in the song. “Now she a gangsta rollin’ with gangsta bitches/Always smoking blunts and getting drunk/Telling sad stories, now she only fuckin’ funk/Highlighting how hardcore she is and real,” Com raps, implying that the genre was running out of steam. Ice Cube responded on Mack 10’s “Westside Slaughterhouse”, rapping, “I used to love her, mad ’cause we fucked her / No sense whipped pussy bitch,” along with beatings more thinly veiled on Common. The Chicago MC would respond in 1996 with the scathing “The Bitch In Yoo,” on which he insulted Cube for his hypocrisy while questioning his rapping skills and much more.

    The beef ended there when Minister Louis Farrakhan called a summit to end rapper beef, Common vs Cube’s beef was chilled at the event. There was a fight between the two associated rappers during a Sprite video shoot the same year, but the beef was done. They then starred together in the film The hair salon: the next haircut in 2016, and teamed up for the song “Real People,” their first collaboration and a song on the soundtrack featuring them rapping about being on good terms now. A happy ending.

  • “No guidance”

    Chris Brown and Drake

    Drake and Chris Brown are part of an elite group of the biggest stars in music history: one is a rapper with R&B leanings, the other an R&B singer who has fully embraced the sound and feel of music. aesthetics of rap. When it seemed more likely they would be friends, a beef over mutual ex-girlfriend Rihanna, whom Brown assaulted in 2009, turned into a violent bottle-throwing contest inside a New York club in 2012. They took look shots. against each other in songs and across media for years afterwards, ending in 2018 when Drake bought Chris Brown onstage in Los Angeles. Breezy was a guest on Drake’s Aubrey & The Three Migos Tour. In June 2019, they teamed up for Chris Brown’s “No Guidance,” which would go on to become a mega-hit, as it is currently eight times platinum. Considering their beef spanned six years and was based on someone who was so vital to both of their stories, it didn’t seem possible for Chris and Drake to make amends, but they did.

But it’s the chosen pen name of Cian Galvin, veteran of the Dublin rap scene, probably best known at home for being the beatmaker of Messiah J & The Expert, an archetypical rapper-producer double act who operated in the 2000s. .

This project appears to have folded, but The Expert has remained active releasing instrumental albums Dynamic drift (2015) and Excursions (2019). And now there’s the awesome The overview effectreleased in May, which pairs him with a new co-conspirator: Cincinnati via Atlanta rapper Jermiside.

Irish rap is typically an island operation. With the notable exception of some very successful Ireland-UK drill music teams, few artists seek overseas collaborators or locate an audience off this island. There has, however, been some serious intercontinental rap forged with American cousins ​​in recent years.

A few tracks that immediately come to mind are Belfast producer Bear//Face and A-1’s version of 2015’s old cloud rap track “Taste My Sad” and the respected Wexford emcee Rob Kelly jumping to a remix of Sean Price and Small’s The Professor’s “Fridge P” a few years ago.

The overview effect go further. On a full album, Jermiside and The Expert fit together like puzzle pieces, complementing each other’s styles as two separate entities that seamlessly synthesize.

Galvin’s particular expertise – and he considers himself an expert, the accompanying notes Dynamic drift described him as “beat commander and music master” – taking old music and turning it into raw, funky, slightly psychedelic rap orchestration. He is a follower of the old ways, citing 1990s East Coast sample producers The RZA, Pete Rock and Large Professor as some of his inspirations.

Add in Edan The beauty and the Beasta kaleidoscopic underground rap classic from 2005, which has been reported as a direct influence on the dirty, layered instrumentals of The overview effect. I also hear DJ Dangermouse’s dusty, western-influenced pocket symphonies.

The Expert’s sample picks through the album are on the left. Rhythms don’t stand still – they evolve like organic life. Take the song “Floating”. The sample appears to be from the Middle East, but has been edited to evoke a spooky 1950s Martian sci-fi B-movie vibe, under which the producer adds smooth drums. Musically, it’s a record laden with ornate flourishes and musical trinkets.

Enter Jermiside, who over the beats delivers a thought-provoking sermon of politically aware rap. It’s fair to say that few rappers have ever tried to say the same within the confines of a single LP.

It begins with “I Love You, Still”, the first song after a short intro, Jermiside’s meditation on generations of black American pain. “Martin Luther told me that hate was a bottomless emotion / But tell that to the slaves at the bottom of the ocean”, he raps at the start of this saga.

Jermiside’s words on black liberation are notable for the scope of his focus. “I Love You, Still” single-handedly references the horrors of slavery, the vapid nature of TV coverage of systematic racism, and the teachings of Nation of Islam founder Wallace Fard Muhammad, complete with a bold, lavish chorus courtesy of Libyan-Irish singer Farah Elle. But there is also Jermiside’s elegant prose. “White noise haunted by black screams / Black tears could fill the Red Sea,” he raps sharply on “Black Tears.”

Jermiside is on less confident ground on “Electric Boogie,” making fairly common complaints on social media — privacy issues, that it’s a waste of time — while invoking the name of George Orwell, a writer which is constantly referenced by experts and commentators these days. But Jermiside uses retro-futuristic imagery like rockets and Skynet, the rogue artificial intelligence of the terminator movies, to give a fun ripple to his modern concerns.

On “Ecology”, Jermiside sounds the alarm on climate change, cursing the “daze” in which humanity lives. Then there’s “Bullet Shock”, in which Jermiside describes the aftermath of a gunfight. The Expert uses untuned electric guitar strings that most producers would avoid, but their warping increases the appropriate sense of unease about the subject. He is a fine example of a producer and a rapper in perfect harmony.

It ends with a shot of romance. “A Little Love” sees The Expert roll out old-school horns as Jermiside tries to do what songwriters have been trying to do since time immemorial: define love. There’s the invocation of Q-Tip’s vocals in Nas’ “One Love,” inviting some of the legends who helped shape the duo to their party.

The album may be about our species’ worst urges, but they find a twinkle of light in the dark. In the future, a formalization of the partnership of Jermiside & The Expert would not be a bad thing.

Cardi apparently shared her thoughts amid the chaos among hip hop ladies.

It’s been a tumultuous month for the ladies of hip hop. Lil Kim was the target of slander on social media last week after fans and 50 Cent accused her of throwing shade at Nicki Minaj in her verse to Megan Thee’s ‘Plan B (Remix)’ Stallion. Although Kim denied the claims, things escalated for the Barbz after Nicki released her highly anticipated version of Queen Mix on “Super Freaky Girl,” featuring City Girls’ JT, BIA, Katie Got Bandz, Akbar V and Maliibu Mitch. They even accused Megan of “encouraging abortion and endangering children with alcohol” after Nicki slammed an unidentified rapper for trying to force her to drink while pregnant.

Megan has since denied the allegations, but the drama with the rap girls is still at an all-time high. Cardi B apparently addressed the elephant in the room during a recent Twitter rant. “This shit is tiring and old and redundant,” she tweeted. “Same formula, DIFFERENT YEAR = start chaos, drama, then promote their shit. I actually have a life outside of my house and Twitter. Until b***** put an @ on it , they talk to their mother. Goodbye.” Although Cardi didn’t mention anyone in particular, she followed the tweet, insisting that anyone who has beef with her should directly tag her on social media.

The tweets come less than a month after Cardi shared another cryptic tweet, saying, “This week just proves what we’ve been saying for years… I’m part of people’s marketing plan. I refuse to help if I don’t get paid.” Shortly after posting, she retweeted a fan who wrote, “No because why every time someone tries to sell something they try to start with you randomly. Rappers, tik tokers, wrestlers, politicians lmaooo. Make ’em pay!!!!!’ What once seemed like a growing sisterhood of female rappers now seems like a divisive battleground.

Share your thoughts on the subtle nuance and ongoing beef with HNHH.

As conversations continue about femcees, Rapsody made it clear that “there is no this or that”.

It’s been quite the weekend for women in rap as there has been some kind of social media war going on among the fans. Nicki Minaj’s faithful have been riding for her ever since she dipped her toes into the mainstream, and they haven’t held back. They promote every release and help Minaj sell out tours and rise to the top of the charts – and when it comes to defending her name, the Barbz can get downright vicious.

Following Minaj’s recent Queen Radio appearance, his social media brouhaha kicked off when the rap icon made some revelations that, unsurprisingly, went viral. After sharing her “Super Freaky Girl (Remix)” which hosted looks from Katie Got Bandz, JT, Akbar V, Maliibu Mitch and Bia, all hell broke loose when there were accusations that d Other come-up rappers weren’t supportive.

Predictably, Hip Hop fans and quite a few trolls weighed in, pitting the women of rap against each other and addressing past tensions. As the conversations became trending topics, Rapsody surfaced with a tweet in which she paid tribute to as many femcees as she could fit in one post.

“There is no this or that,” she wrote. “It’s AND. Roxanne AND Salt N Pepa AND Lyte AND Latifah AND Lauryn AND Kim AND Foxy AND Missy AND Trina AND Nicki AND Cardi AND Megan AND Tierra AND LK47 AND Lady London AND Che Noire AND Simz AND City Girls etc etc.”

Rapsody also retweeted a follower who added a few more notable names to the list. Meanwhile, these Nicki Minaj conversations continue as the names of Lakeyah and Coi Leray have been injected into the conversation.

The Rap-Up is the only weekly roundup that brings you the best rap songs you haven’t heard yet. So support true independent music journalism by subscribing to Passion of the Weiss on Patreon.

Donald MorrisonThe engravings of on his tombstone will be in wine mom font.



Nef The Pharaoh at its best sounds like a spiritual successor to Mac Dre, managing to be fun and deadly serious at the same time in a way that recalls the effortless brand of storytelling and conversational wit honed by the Thizzle man. a few decades ago. He was just 20 at the start of 2015 when he struck gold with “Big Tymin”, his debut hit which was eventually remixed by YG and Ty Dolla $ign and helped land him a deal with E-40’s Sick Wid It Records. Since then, he’s released a handful of studio albums and a string of mixtapes, including a standout collaboration with 03 Greedo in 2018. He told PoW this same year he hopes to finish writing an animated series for Adult Swim and plans to use his success to help put others in the future.

There’s an incentive to grow up fast when you come from Vallejo, an area that has sometimes been considered one of the most criminal towns in the San Francisco Bay Area. In “Old Enough”, Nef fondly remembers the time when he was not old enough to get revenge on his enemies, fuck girls or buy drugs. These were deceptively innocent moments in Nef’s life and throughout the song, it feels like he wished he had enjoyed them more. “18 years old with a baby, I wasn’t old enough, I fed my family the words, I had to show them something,” says Nef proudly. Now that he’s old enough to be a mentor to his younger family members, Nef is wise enough to talk them out of following the same path as him, saying “my cousin tried to hit my cup, he didn’t isn’t old enough”, and “My daughter wants to go on tour, but she’s not old enough, she bought the whip with automatic doors so she can’t open them.” Nef is only 27, but has already experienced fatherhood and an arc of redemption usually achieved by someone in their early 40s.



A skinny looking white child with face paint waving around a pile of fake guns in front of a camera. We have seen it before and we will see it again. Marjorie WC Sinclaire is the rapper alias of Evanora: Unlimited, an Oakland-born producer known for his nihilistic approach to rave music and industrial techno. This week he posted 22nd chance, a record that contains enough innovative sound and abject weirdness to officially make me a fan. The video for “Nexus 3 / Gold Country Lanes”, two songs from the album that feature the same beat, shows Marjorie in almost countless numbers of really crazy fits and a quick glance at her website shows that he designed the clothes himself and is selling them, in case you are interested in the “Pillowcase Dress Pants”.

Marjorie raps with an agonizingly hard-hitting flow about teenage heartache and trips to Gold Country Lanes, a bowling alley in Sutter Creek, California. There’s something heartwarming about a song dedicated to a small-town bowling alley, the kind of establishments that really only exist in America outside the big cities and in the Midwest. The cosmic carpet, the old school jukebox, a sock vending machine and a deceptively long menu of fried foods and cheap beers. “Gold Country Lane’s baby, let’s go bowling, air hockey table in the back, let’s break the quarters,” Marjorie says of a lighthearted production that adds to the lane’s overall suburban appeal. I could easily imagine this being played in the real Gold Country Lanes, which is about the biggest compliment I can give.



A reinvigorated JoogSZN provides Detroit stalwart Lou Grams and collaborator NipscoGang Foreign with one of his hardest hitting beats this year (alongside co-producer Quadwoofer). The bubbly bass and ethereal keyboard are perfect backdrops for NipscoGang to go presidential, comparing the white diamonds on its dial to Joe Biden and proclaiming that even his girlfriend leaves the house open. Lou Grams, along with Detroit rappers Peezy, DameDot, Tee Grizzley and Babyface Ray, has been in the game for over a decade, debuting as a loosely connected Eastside team of the early 2010s. a number of artists connected to Team Eastside have enjoyed at least moderate success, finding their individual voices and refining what makes them unique for dark and unforgiving solo albums. Lou Grams takes on the role of leader with the type of lazy, tongue-in-cheek tone reserved for a boss who knows he’s answering to no one.



When TNFW Nique says she has a murder on her mind, it might not be exactly what you mean. On “BDF (FNF REMIX),” which stands for “Baby Daddy Free,” TNFW writes a pro-choice anthem complete with a spelling of the word ABORT in the chorus. The video shows her dancing and fanning money in front of a local Planned Parenthood, which is a welcome sight compared to the pro-life protesters who sometimes haunt Planned Parenthoods entrances across the country, their presence probably deterring people from the health resources they need.

The song is a remix of “FNF” by Hitkidd & GloRilla, a similarly themed screed against broke boys and fucking men. Luckily for the Oakland-based TNFW, she lives in a state where abortion is legal and where the law even protects out-of-state patients who travel to California for an abortion from being sued in other states. other states. ‘BDF’ offers the kind of vulgar empowerment that works well in the face of a country that recently reversed legislation that made abortion access a federal right in the United States.



Central Cee stops by The LA Leakers with a verse helping to define his British drill slang, reminiscent of when Big L did the same for his street vernacular on “Ebonics”, in 1998. The Shepherd’s Bush, London MC picks up there where he left with this year’s “Doja,” the artist’s first big hit and the one he mentions in freestyle, dropping an equally tongue-in-cheek verse that lets Americans know he’s flexing and punching on the other side of the pond. “You say ‘the feds just did a sweep,’ we say, ‘the boy ran into my goof,’ Central Cee clarifies, before adding, ‘you say ‘On God, no cap,’ we say ‘swear On Your Life, Don’t Gas Central Cee manages to break down British slang in a way that doesn’t sound cheesy or obvious, helping to introduce passive American listeners to his way of speaking before releasing his next big song.



It’s powerful to see Keak Da Sneak continue to do his thing even within the confines of a wheelchair. The Bay Area legend, who helped define the hyphy sound with songs like “Super Hyphy” and E-40’s “Tell Me When To Go,” has been partially crippled since 2017 after being shot eight times during an attempted robbery in Oakland. We haven’t seen much of the Bay Area icon since then and her presence in Haiti’s new song Babii deserves at least a little write-up. In the video for “YEE,” Keak raps in front of a mural of The Jacka, another Bay Area legend who was gunned down in 2015. Keak has experienced a small cache of tragedies in his life, after being shot twice in a year. , to see his close friends and associates being slowly killed one by one. Seeing him reminds us to appreciate the legends we have while they’re still breathing and also that Keak would make an amazing actor, in the same vein as Snoop Dogg’s wheelchair appearance in training day.
