Tune in to our weekly mix of the biggest rap and R&B tracks.
Our weekly FIRE EMOJI playlist is here, representing yet another eventful week in hip-hop releases. The mix kicks off with Freddie Gibbs' "Weight," a selection off his surprise-released album Freddie, which features one of the year's best album covers, as well as production from rising producer Kenny Beats (recently working on both KEY's 777 and Rico Nasty's Nasty. "Weight," however, is a collaboration with RichGains, who more or less splits production duties with Kenny across the project. Also included is Rick Ross' brand new Port Of Miami 2 single "Green Suit Gucci," which finds him reuniting with Future. The two previously worked together on, among other tracks, "UOENO," a single heaped in controversy that became an undeniable hit. With "Green Gucci Suit," they turn up the BPM for a track that nods to Mannie Fresh era Juvenile. Elsewhere, Wiz Khalifa's new Swae Lee-assisted single, "Hopeless Romantic" appears. It's the new single from the Pittsburgh rapper's long-awaited Rolling Papers 2 project. Also included are new singles from Tory Lanez and Rich The Kid, 6LACK, Yung Bans, and a song from XXXTentacion's ? album, included following the rapper's unexpected death this week, an event which has encouraged debates about mourning and morality.
