V.C.R. – “Blue”

Fresh of the road with Pink Siifu, Memphis singer, V.C.R., shares an entrancingly smoky glimpse at her upcoming debut album for Leaving Records.

Jaywop – “Rounds”

A$AP Ant and A$AP Rocky – “The God Hour”

A$AP Ant and A$AP Rocky reunite on a heavenly hustle anthem.

Freddie Gibbs featuring Rick Ross – “Ice Cream”

Freddie Gibbs and Rick Ross are an unholy union on this loose and frigid Kenny Beats-produced collaboration.

Vince Staples – “ROSE STREET”

Not even a year after the release of his superlative self-titled album. Vince Staples returns with a neck-cranking one-off.

Kadhja Bonet – “Dear Gina”

Kadhja Bonet slips back into the fold with another soulful lo-fi pop experiment. Earlier this year, the singer signed with Ninja Tune, presumably to release the follow-up to her lauded 2018 album, Childqueen.
