Keep reading below to see our other selects.

Drake, 21 Savage – “On BS” 

Continuing their album rollout for Her Loss, Drake and 21 Savage rolled out a fake Saturday Night Live performance for their single “On BS.” The set is pretty on-brand for the late-night television show and Michael B Jordan even makes a guest appearance. Also, their chemistry shines through while they share the standout from their new album. “On BS” definitely deserved this moment, it’s one of the more upbeat tracks to surface alongside other staples: “Pussy & Millions,” “Major Distribution,” and “Privileged Rappers.”

Quavo, Takeoff – “Messy” 

Last week, the rap industry was hit hard with the news that Atlanta rapper Takeoff was pronounced dead. Though this news was unfortunate and met with the pouring out of tributes to him, his spirit lives on in tracks like “Messy” featuring Quavo which is off their collaborative album Only Built For Infinity Links.

Smino, J. Cole – “90 Proof”

To accompany his latest album Luv 4 Rent, Smino releases a new visual for “90 Proof.” Directed by Phillip Youmans, the video features a series of themes including a new, flashy lover while a past beau stalks the pair from afar. Additionally, he’s being supported by his community during other parts of the clip. By the time J. Cole arrives towards the end, he steals the show.

Lil Baby, Future – “From Now On” 

“From Now On” is the latest single to arrive from Lil Baby’s album It’s Only Me. Featuring Future, the video is just another moment for Lil Baby to flex the heights he’s reached so far in his rap career. Chains, clothes by Heron Preston, and sneakers by Fear of God are on display, and so is New York City, where Lil Baby’s team shot a bunch of clips for the video.
