Earlier this year, HNHH launched a Spotify playlist called FIRE EMOJI: The Hottest Hip Hop Songs Right Now. 

The playlist is updated on a daily basis. It lives on Spotify and thus is inherently imperfect, because not all super-hot hip hop songs have been added to Spotify. Still, the playlist is generally representative of the best new releases in hip hop and R&B.

A few of December's best and biggest releases include: Childish Gambino's "Awaken, My Love!", Kid Cudi's Passion, Pain & Demon Slayin', Post Malone's STONEY, Gucci Mane's The Return Of East Atlanta Santa, Run The Jewels' RTJ3, Yo Gotti's CM9, Chance The Rapper & Jeremih's Merry Christmas Lil Mama, and more.
