A playlist of HNHH's favorite songs from the past week.
When it's been an extra long week, chances are you haven't been able to peep all the new music that has dropped over the past seven days. A few months into 2016, and the ever-fruitful genre of hip-hop continues to supply the goods, week after week. Lucky for you, keeping track of the constant flood of all that's hot and new is our job, and we've rounded up the best tunes of last week in an easy, cohesive playlist that's available to stream below.
This week's Staff Picks playlist starts out hot, with a new R&B-tinged street collab from Trouble and Fetty Wap. Then things get dark, with the new Harry Fraud-produced A$AP joint -- and even darker, with Rozay's remix of Denzel Curry's "Knotty Head." What a monster of a track.
The playlist then slithers into the underground, providing a bit of respite but no shortage of inspiring material. Get acquainted with the lesser-known talents of Dantes, Elhae, Tunji Ige, and 17-year-old Lil West before things bubble back up to the mainstream with one of THE tracks of the moment: Travi$ Scott's rework of Madeintyo's "Uber Everywhere."
The exploratory listening session is capped off with some lo-fi jazzy goodness from Elzhi and "30 Hours" producer Karriem Riggins, and, finally, the new remix of Majid Jordan's "My Love." It's Drake on a deep house beat, and that's your signal to GTFO the house and hit the club. Happy Friday!
