Earlier this year, HNHH launched a Spotify playlist called FIRE EMOJI: The Hottest Hip Hop Songs Right Now.  The playlist is updated on a daily basis. It lives on Spotify and thus is inherently imperfect, because not all super-hot hip hop songs have been added to Spotify. Still, the playlist is generally representative of the best new releases in hip hop and R&B.

Black Hippy is the greatest rap collective this side of the Wu-Tang Clan. Kendrick Lamar, ScHoolboy Q, Jay Rock, & Ab-Soul each possess a unique skill set and temperament and are unstoppable when united. Black Hippy is the rap game Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. They have released numerous posse cuts over the years, albeit with increasing infrequency. Here are the 11 of the very best:

Lil Uzi Vert Calls Ab-Soul "One Of The Best Rappers" Sep 10, 2016 at 09:15pm
A couple of days ago, Ab-Soul called out the new generation of "lil" rappers, seemingly implicating Lil Uzi Vert, as he then tweeted, "We don't pass on PRIMO beats in this sport kids!" He was likely referring to Uzi's refusal to rap over the beat to Gang Starr's "Mass Appeal" when asked to freestyle during a HOT 97 interview earlier this year.

Isaiah Rashad recently made a triumphant return with his official debut album, The Sun's Tirade, released almost three years after TDE put out his Cilvia Demo EP. Next up for the LA powerhouse is Ab-Soul and SZA, neither of whom have dropped a commercial project since 2014.

Ab-Soul isn't the first rapper in the game to take issue with some of his colleagues. We recently saw Pete Rock lay out his feelings about some of the new wave of artists, including Lil Yachty and fellow rappers that are heard to understand on wax. Yachty took it in stride (sorta), but now Ab-Soul has stepped in to also throw shade at this new generation of rappers, the same that Pete Rock was referencing.

TDE President Shares Mysterious Release Date
TDE President Shares Mysterious Release Date Aug 6, 2016 at 02:29pm
Earlier this year, TDE CEO Top Dawg suggested that at least 6 projects would be released by the label in 2016, one from each of its signees, as well as the possibility of music from two unnamed artists (one later revealed to be Lance Skiiiwalker). So far, TDE has dropped Kendrick Lamar's untitled, unmastered and ScHoolboy Q's Blank Face LP, meaning there's a whole lot more to come in the second half of the year.

I'm not going to take the time to crunch all of the numbers for the 28 weeks of 2016 we've experienced thus far, but in terms of artists who show up most often in our weekly top ten tracks list, it's not even close. Drake is the clear victor, seeming to find a way on here every week. Second place is a little more murky.

Even on the very rare occasion that Drake doesn't show up in our top ten tracks of the week, his presence is still felt. In this case, he's directly responsible for three separate tracks in the top ten, whether that entails remixes or disses aimed at him.

It’s safe to say Ab-Soul isn’t a big fan of Jay Electronica. On Thursday night, the TDE member took the stage at the second annual STEEZ Day Festival in Los Angeles to send a message and/or “shot” (if you can even call it that) at the Brooklyn rapper.
