    It's that time of the week again. As we make our way into the weekend hours, literally, it's almost 5 PM here on the East Coast, we've readied a new Staff Picks playlist to jam. Today saw a notable album release from The Weeknd, while earlier in the week we got big singles from August Alsina, Curren$y with August Alsina (and Lil Wayne, who also appeared on Alsina's track...New Orleaneans teaming up), Jay Rock and a few others.

    Breakout Chicago emcee Mick Jenkins raps, “With perfect pitch, I’m screaming free my niggas/ polished and purposeful, he’s producing pristine pictures.” These rhymes-- which open “P’s & Q’s,” the eighth track off Jenkins’ latest effort, Wave[s]-- encapsulate both the ethos of this nine track EP, and one of its major shortcomings. While Jenkins is as evocative as ever, his pitch, his execution, is somewhat off.

    We know you're probably sick of all the year-end lists from last year, but we're already in the second month of 2015, and we're hypothesizing who will get their big break in the coming months. This time last year, Bobby Shmurda came across a particularly fiery Jahlil Beats production on YouTube. Months later, iLoveMakonnen would see Drake remixing his song on Instagram. Crazy shit happens in hip-hop, and we wanna stay ahead of the curve. Some of the names on this list will be more familiar than others, but all these rappers have the potential to have huge come-ups in 2015.

Cole's Dreamville imprint, two North Carolina natives connect on wax, and more. Take a look through the images above.

    Mick Jenkins is far from being a household name, but with just one mixtape under his belt, he's already developed an extremely distinct style and a clear vision to go along with it. Trees And Truths first introduced us to the lyrical Chicago spitter, with a cohesive theme and thought-provoking lyrics enveloped in head-bobbing beats. It's his way of wrapping up what might usually be deemed as conscious rap in a not-so-conscious style.

While they may have received front-page placement on HNHH, they didn't get as many views as they deserve, so we shine a little more light on them right here. On this week's edition we scrounge up music from rappers on the rise, some of whom just inked a independent label deal (Mick Jenkins), and some of whom are free agents (Ro Ransom). There's a producer who doubles as a singer, and a New York native brining a new sound to the city.

    Underrated Audio aims to provide you with some dope looks from the last seven days, that flew under most peoples' radars. While they may have received front-page placement on HNHH, they didn't get as many views as they deserve, so we shine a little more light on them right here. This past week proved to be pretty fruitful for good music, as we approach summer we are getting plenty of summertime anthems to bump. These particular selections aren't strictly in that lane though, but they definitely cover all bases, from chilled out lazy day vibes to g'd up West Coast music.
