Jhene Aiko and Cassie have both had big years. Cassie dropped the well-received Rockabyebaby mixtape back in April, and Jhene is fresh off of releasing her debut EP, which debuted at number 8 on the Billboard chart this week.

It’s always a beautiful thing when Gucci Mane and Waka Flocka get on a record together. Let’s be clear, these two men aren’t the most lyrical cats in the game, but they bring that bravado and street lingo that we all love and appreciate.
Who doesn’t love Wiz and Spitta? Now they won’t be the first ones to be lauded for being complex lyricists. But guess what, that’s ok.
