There was a lot of turnover in our top tracks this week.
Other than some resurfacing beefs (between Young Thug and The Game, and Rick Ross and Birdman, respectively) and the beginning of what is sure to be another drawn-out, highly-publicized Kanye West album rollout, it was a relatively quiet week, especially as far as full-length releases went. That being said, we saw a ton of change in our weekly top ten, with only one of last week's tracks making it in for a repeat appearance. Drake's "Summer Sixteen" has finally been pushed out of the paint, and now holds a spot at number 15. That means that nearly every song included this week is a new release, or at least in its second week of airtime.
After delivering two stunning guest verses last week, Lil Wayne again appears twice this week, once on a resurfaced banger, and another time alongside some of his Cash Money Day Ones. French Montana's excellent Wave Gods tape also notches two of its high-profile cuts here, and Madeintyo's buzzing "Uber Everywhere" record has not one, but two of its new remixes appear here. Check out February's last top ten list below.
10. French Montana Feat. Future - Miley Cyrus
Track two on Wave Gods, "Miley Cyrus" melds French and Fewtch's respective sounds, leading to quite an infectious product. On their own, these two know how to turn personal pain into honest-yet-catchy bangers, and it turns out that also holds true when they're operating in tandem. This record comes in at number ten, after rising five spots.
9. Tory Lanez - Uber Everywhere
Tory Lanez is the latest artist to flip Madeintyo and Private Club's undeniable hit and deliver his own take, actually opting to remix the beat a bit too. He even nods to the other most prominent remix of the track, acknowledging that he copped some of his flows on the track from Travi$ Scott's version. One question though: what's an "Uber Jet"? Tory makes his Top 100 debut at number nine.
8. Baauer Feat. Pusha T & Future - Kung Fu
In just under three weeks, "Harlem Shake" beatmaker Baauer will release his debut album, Aa, and last week he drummed up anticipation by releasing a huge track from it. "Kung Fu" reunites the team that made My Name Is My Name's "Pain," Future and Pusha T, this time for an exotic-sounding banger. You'd think King Push would've already used every possible nickname for cocaine, but then he goes and calls it Macklemore. Amazing. Yet another new entry at number eight.
7. Joey Bada$$ - Ready (Prod. by Statik Selektah)
Joey Bada$$ surprised quite a few people when he teamed up with his fellow Cinematic Music Group signee, G Herbo, over a Metro Boomin beat back in November. If you thought he was set to abandon his grimy boom bap roots altogether though, think again. "Ready" pairs his back up with his longtime collaborator Statik Selektah, and they sound great as ever together, earning over 95k views which pushed him to a number seven debut.
6. Mannie Fresh Feat. Juvenile, Lil Wayne & Birdman - Hate
Is the beef finally over? Onetime Cash Money mainstay Mannie Fresh somehow linked Lil Wayne back up with his estranged father figure, Birdman, for a track from his upcoming album on Mass Appeal. As a kicker, we also get a Juvenile verse!
5. French Montana Feat. Kanye West & Nas - Figure It Out
Another sure Wave Gods highlight, "Figure It Out" pairs Kanye West and Nas for the first time since Hip Hop Is Dead's "Still Dreaming." French and Ye sing auto tune circles around each other before God's Son laces the track's back half with a characteristically thrilling verse. Best track on the tape? It's hard to say, but this comes close. The song rose up the ranks from number eight this past week, to number five.
4. Lil Wayne - Trouble (Mastered) (Prod. by StreetRunner)
It seems like Wayne's been hotter with the guest verses in the first few months of 2016 than he was with two tapes and an album in 2015, but nothing tops some Old Weezy. Last week, producer StreetRunner liberated a track from the Carter III sessions that's long existed in low quality form. "Trouble" is pretty undeniably great.
3. Chris Brown Feat. Usher & Zayn - Back To Sleep (Remix)
Chris Brown has some big remixes planned for his Royalty cut "Back To Sleep," and last week he gave us the first of three. Usher and Zayn Malik guest here, making it the former One Direction member's first appearance in our top ten. Stay tuned for a version starring Tank and Tyrese, as well as one with Miguel, August Alsina and Bryson Tiller.
2. Rick Ross Feat. Kanye West & Rihanna - Famous (Remix)
Unfortunately, The Life Of Pablo didn't yield us any of Kanye and Rick Ross' historically incredible collabs, but Rozay had plans of his own. He hopped on the already hype-as-fuck "Famous," adding some choice bars to the T Swift-dissing record. An improvement on the original? Almost certainly. The record made quite the leap up to number two on our Top 100.
1. Travi$ Scott - Uber Everywhere (Remix)
The sole remnant from last week's list holds steady at number one. Travi$ Scott's take on Madeintyo's hit is perhaps proving more popular than the original to date, which should prove mutually beneficial to both artists. Hopefully we'll see an actual collab from them in the future. For now, this song continues to garner more and more views, currently edging towards 400,000.
