Lil Uzi Vert and Playboi Carti continue their fruitful partnership with the chart-topping "Squad (Firearm)."
Playboi Carti and Lil Uzi Vert seem to have enjoyed a close friendship for the past few years. Not only do they have a streak of successful collaborations between them (most notably "wokeuplikethis"), but they've also toured together in the past and are rumoured to have a joint release, entitled 16*29, in the works. Back on December 2nd, a track from that rumoured release surfaced, and in its second week out, has ascended to the top of our chart.
This week, Quavo is the only artist with multiple appearances on the chart, notching two of his own without the help of his fellow Migos.
10. Lil Baby Feat. Quavo, Moneybagg Yo & Kodak Black - My Dog Remix
Quality Control, the label that's home to Migos, Lil Yachty, and more, just dropped their Control The Streets: Vol. 1 compilation this week, and included on it was this star-studded remix to Atlanta up-and-comer Lil Baby's buzzing hit "That's My Dog." Bolstered by appearances from Quavo, Moneybagg Yo, and Lodal Black, this one debuts at #10.
9. Zaytoven Feat. Quavo & 2 Chainz - Wake Up & Cook Up
Veteran Atlanta producer Zaytoven already dropped the second volume of his Where Would the Game Be Without Me mixtape series earlier this year, but apparently he's got another project on the way. The upcoming more official album is led off by the Quavo and 2 Chainz-assisted "Wake Up & Cook Up," a track that debuts at #9.
8. Big Sean Feat. Travis Scott - Go Legend
Metro Boomin completed a hat-trick of successful 2017 mini-albums this past week with Double Or Nothing, a collaboration with Big Sean. The lead track from the one-producer project is the Travis Scott-assisted "Go Legend," that makes its debut at #8.
7. Juicy J Feat. ASAP Rocky & Project Pat - Feed These Streets
Juicy J dropped off his Rubba Band Business album last week, and we chose to highlight this cut, which reunites him with two frequent collaborators, as well as Metro Boomin. "Feed These Streets" racked up an almost 90% user rating and debuts at #7.
6. Mase Feat. Diddy & DJ Khaled - Rap Rushmore
I'm not sure how many peoples' versions of a rap Mount Rushmore would include Mase, but nevertheless, the Harlem veteran released a single by that name last week. Due to additional ad-lib by Diddy and DJ Khaled, as well a Mase's well-publicized recent beef with Cam'ron, this one debuts at #6.
5. London On Da Track Feat. Young Thug, Ty Dolla Sign, Jeremih & YG - Whatever You On
Back in August, ATL producer extraordinaire London On Da Track released his debut single with Nicki Minaj, 21 Savage, and Offset on "No Flag," and this past week he returned with a follow-up. With a slew of similar star-studded emcees, "Whatever You On" debuts at #5.
4. Joyner Lucas - Gucci Gang
Massachusetts rapper Joyner Lucas has taken it upon himself to save rap, and after raising some eyebrows with his "I'm Not Racist" video two weeks ago, this past week he took aim at SoundCloud rap's latest scapegoat, Lil Pump. His freestyle over the ascendant star's "Gucci Gang," which takes aim at Pump himself, debuts at #4.
3. Trippie Redd Feat. Travis Scott - Dark Knight Dummo
Trippie Redd's blowout year is capped off by "Dark Knight Dummo," a song that follows up co-signs from Drake, Lil Wayne and Diplo with a more tangible one from Travis Scott. This track debuts at #3.
2. Eminem - Untouchable
Somehow, the lowest-rated song in our top ten this week is by Eminem, who has one of the most fervent fan bases in the game. Apparently, they weren't feeling it this time around, because his new Revival single "Untouchable" only garnered 51% fan approval. Nevertheless, it debuts at #2.
1. Playboi Carti & Lil Uzi Vert - Squad (Firearm)
"Squad (Firearm)" leaked in unofficial form last weekend, leading to some questions about whether it'll be included on any upcoming projects, but people were clearly checking for it. Even though it was scrubbed from the web pretty quickly, it moved up 26 spots from #27 to #1 in its second week out. Although there is no more audio proof, the track still takes the top spot for the week.
