Best Songs of The Week: ft. MF DOOM, Isaiah Rashad, and More [Playlist]

The Round-Up is Okayplayer’s weekly playlist of the best songs in the worlds of hip-hop and R&B. This week’s set features new music from MF DOOM, Isaiah Rashad, lojii, Little Simz, and more.

Scroll through selections from this week’s sequence below and subscribe to Okayplayer’s Spotify channel today.

Czarface and MF DOOM – “Break in The Action”

As promised, Esoteric, Inspectah Deck, and 7L’s collaborative banner, Czarface, has released a joint project with the late MF DOOM. On this standout from Super What?, the iconic rapper trades bars with the group over a smooth and sedated rhodes groove. Super What? is out today on Silver Age with vinyl copies available to pre-order in two variant covers via Gasdrawls.




Little Simz featuring Cleo Sol – “Woman”

Little Simz appears to be in new album mode. Her latest transmission is a simmering mid-tempo ode to black women with a Neptunes knock.

Isaiah Rashad featuring Duke Duece – “Lay Wit Ya”

After weeks of deciphering who would be the subject of TDE’s May 7th drop, the West Coast camp officially revealed the video for Isaiah Rashad‘s long-awaited comeback single last night at a premiere party in Los Angeles. And it’s already a “Song of The Summer” contender.

Sango and Waldo – “Neutral (Interlude)”

Sango and Waldo tease their next collaborative outing with a brief but blistering interlude.

Mara TK – “Te Kete Aronui”

A hauntingly soulful slow-burner off of Mara TK‘s debut solo album, Bad Meditations, out today via Extra Soul Perception.

Namir Blade and L’Orange – “I Can Change

Namir Blade is full float on a tender ballad from his new collaborative album with L’Orange, Imaginary Everything, out today via Mello Music Group.

Mndsgn – “Medium Rare”

Mndsgn offers another glimpse at his upcoming album for Stones Throw with a gorgeously sophisticated spell of cosmic r&b and heavy reverb.
