The weekly round-up of our favorite songs from the past week.
This week definitely ended on a high note. The past two days alone we've been inundated with music, from Rae Sremmurd (who also announced a release date and tracklist for the highly anticipated SremmLife 2) to Skepta (another album announcement on deck here) to ASAP Ferg, 2 Chainz, Fabolous, vintage Nas, and that's just scratching the surface of yesterday's songs list-- need I go into today's, which includes a Kid Cudi x Mike WiLL Made It collab?
There was ample to choose from then, for this week's Staff Picks playlist. The playlist starts out innocently enough with a remastered version of Nasir's "Cops Keep Firing Me" (just as relevant today as it was in 2008, if not more so), and we keep the lyrical weight coming with smooth tracks from Rittz and Action Bronson. From there we lighten things up a bit with hyphy jams from RJ and Nef The Pharaoh, before ending with the penultimate turn-up from Lil Uzi Vert. You ready? Click play below.
