HNHH's weekly round-up of our favorite tracks of the week.
As promised, the HNHH staff will continue to supply its readers with a weekly round-up of all that went down in hip-hop over the past week. Whether it's the gritty East Coast lyricism of RetcH, the funky exuberance of D.R.A.M., or the fearsome trap of 21 Savage, today's playlist showcases the genre in its full breadth. More familiar faces include the always evolving Boogie -- who gets romantic on his new "Sunroof" single, TM88 -- who enlists two of the most charming personalities in ATL for "Been Thru a Lot," and OG Maco -- responsible for the frigid hook on "Servin," the new single from newcomer Jay5. Other lesser-known/soon-to-blow young talents include 24hrs, Topaz Jones, and Benjamin Earl Turner.
The mix closes with one of the biggest drops of the week, Nicki Minaj's comeback statement, "The Pinkprint Freestyle." Had to get a lady in there, and Nicki's latest is one that turns the men back into boys. Stream the playlist and check out each staff member's picks below.
