Fatboit Sharif and Roper Williams featuring Bruiser Wolf – “Po Pimping Do or Die”

Fatboi Sharif scorches a spacious soul chop with snarled psychedelia on this standout from Planet Unfaithful, the Jersey rapper’s new collaborative project with Roper Williams, which is out today via POW Records.

Jadasea & Laron featuring Wiki – “Oh Dear”

Jadasea and Laron put their potency on full display in this brawny new single from their upcoming collaborative tape, The Corner Vol. 1, which is set for release on February 8th via 10k Records.

Lil Yachty – drive ME crazy”

Lil Yachty dips into a mid-tempo disco pop groove on this gleaming footwork-friendly cut from his stellar new album, Let’s Start Here, which is out today via QC and Universal Music Group, featuring contributions from Fousheé, Nick Hakim, Mac DeMarco, and more.

Vic Mensa featuring Thundercat and Maeta – “Strawberry Louis Vuitton”

Freshly returned from the inaugural edition of his Black Star Line Festival in Ghana, Vic Mensa lets loose an airy and kaleidoscopic bit of dusty r&b, aided by the soaring falsettos of Thundercat and Maeta.

Popstar Benny featuring Sk8star – “omg”

Popstar Benny sends up a spell of trilling hi-hats and punchy, wide-panning synths on this rumbling selection from his new album, University!, which is out today via True Panther Records, featuring appearances from Tony Shhnow, Bear1boss, $pook, and more.

Kari Faux – “Me First”

After premiering an assertive club anthem months ago on COLORS, Kari Faux seemingly sounds the alarm for her next album with a proper studio version of the track, along with a high-octane remix from UNIIQU3.
