"Delete Your Account," reads the new anti-Trump, pro-Hillary T-shirt, showing a bobbling Twitter icon with an "X" in its left-hand corner.

Pusha T Hypes Desiigner's Imminent "Timmy Turner" Single With New Artwork
With the overwhelming success of "Panda," its safe to say that GOOD Music president Pusha T knows how to work a single.

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.
The Best Hip Hop Songs (On Spotify) Of June 2016
ICYMI: HNHH recently launched a Spotify playlist called FIRE EMOJI: The Hottest Hip Hop Songs Right Now. The 40-track playlist is updated on a daily basis. It lives on Spotify and thus is inherently imperfect, because not all supa-hot hip hop songs have been added to Spotify (e.g. those recent ScHoolboy Q releases). Still, the playlist is generally representative of the best new releases in hip hop.
Review: Desiigner's "New English"
If you, like me, weren't one of the couple thousand people who had pressed play on the Soundcloud link Desiigner's "Panda" by the time you sat down to watch Kanye West's Life Of Pablo livestream this February, you were most likely among the millions who first assumed that the teenaged, "Broads in Atlanta"-touting Brooklyn rapper was actually Future. That's a pretty huge hole from which to exhume yourself just as you're getting started with your career, but Desiigner did it. With that one record out in the world, he signed with G.O.O.D.

Let's face it, as far as high-profile tracks go, there's no way this week (or any week really) could have lived up to the seven days that preceded it. Drake, Kanye, Jay Z, Justin Bieber, Gucci Mane, Travi$ Scott, and Pusha T all joined forces with some combination of one another to make for the craziest batch of tracks we've seen in such a short span this year.
Top Tracks: May 30 - June 5
Do you ever get the feeling that hip hop's current class of elites is more of a group of superfriends than ever before? Let's play six degrees of separation with this week's top ten tracks-- the most momentous batch in recent memory. At the top we've got DJ Khaled, who's collaborated with more of rap's A- B- and C-listers in his career than arguably anyone else, and who's accompanied by Drake.
