The last we heard from Nikki Jean was way back in 2011 when the singer-songwriter made her HNHH on "Million Star Hotel." A smooth cut featuring classic verses from Lupe Fiasco & Black Thought, the track was universally acclaimed by our readers.
A little under two weeks ago, Ab-Soul surprised us all by dropping a track entitled "W.W.S.D." out of the blue. The one-off track bore similar artwork to his album These Days, but its sonic characteristics couldn't have been more different from the album's overall character.
UTK, short for Universe The King, is a rapper from Los Angeles who's never been featured on HNHH before, but today he comes through with a track that's more than worthy of our attention. "Talk To Em" features guest verses from fellow Angelino Ab-Soul and battle rapper Loaded Lux.

In celebration of his “These Days” Tour rolling into Madison, WI tonight, Ab-Soul decides to give the DopeHouse the green light to premiere his newest offering “W.W.S.D.", which stands for What Would Soul Do.
Short Dawg is gearing up to drop a new mixtape NoDOZ soon, and in anticipation of the mixtape the rapper sent us a new single with two solid appearances from Ab-Soul and Mac Miller. Elvis Freshley, as he goes by on Twitter, has a banger with this one.
