Rich The Kid nabbed a great Kendrick Lamar verse on "New Freezer," which debuts at #1.
When Rich The Kid first started making noise, he was secondary to the Migos, appearing on their Streets on Lock mixtape series but failing to make a name for himself as a solo artist. As time has gone on, he's gradually upped his stock, starting his Rich Forever imprint on 300 Entertainment, and racking up a surprisingly top-tier list of collaborations. This past week, he surprised everyone by nabbing one of the best Kendrick Lamar features in recent memory.
Tory Lanez, Travis Scott, and Kodak Black all finish with two appearances apiece in this week's top ten. New tracks barely missing out on the list include Lupe Fiasco's "Running from President" (#11), King Los' "R.A.S." (#14), Tip and Young Thug's "Red Redemption" (#15), and Isaiah Rashad's "The Race" freestyle (#17).
10. Kodak Black Feat. Mr. Flipper - Lil Shoota Love
Although Kodak hasn't released a tape or album since Project Baby 2, he's been a fixture in our top ten from week to week, turning in loosies at an alarming pace. Unfortunately, he remains divisive as ever with users, with even the old school-flavored "Lil Shoota Love" only receiving 27% approval. This one debuts at #10.
dvsn already had their second album scheduled for an October 13th release, and just last week, their fellow OVO artists Majid Jordan announced that their new project will arrive two weeks later. October's Very Own indeed. The two duos team up on "My Imagination," which debuts at #9.
Metro Boomin celebrated his birthday just around two weeks ago (dude is only 24!), and as a present to his fans, he shared "Blue Pill," a collab with Travis Scott. This one debuted at #2 last week, and in its second week out, it falls six spots to wind up at #8.
7. Kodak Black - No Flockin 2 (Bodak Orange)
More than any other artist in the past few years, Kodak Black's had the biggest disconnect between views and actual approval. Case in point is this rewrite of 2015's "No Flockin," which debuted at #1 last week but has a downright embarrassing 23% user rating. In its second week out, it falls six places to finish at #7.
6. Tory Lanez - Skrt Skrt
Revamping his Fargo Fridays series, Tory Lanez has shared tracks at the tail ends of the last two weeks, and despite arriving late, both have made it into the top ten on their first go-round. The second of those is "Skrt Skrt," which makes its debut at #6. It's among the first singles from his sophomore album.
Last week, Smokepurpp shared his long-awaited Deadstar project, but despite reports that Travis Scott would be on the project, he didn't show up on the final tracklist. Instead, La Flame appears on this track that showed up on Purpp's Soundcloud as a bonus track a day later. "Fingers Blue" debuts at #5.
4. Jhene Aiko Feat. Swae Lee - Sativa
Jhene Aiko surprised us all by dropping a lengthy album by the name of Trip this past week, and one of the definite standouts is this Swae Lee-assisted ode to the headier of the two dominant families of marijuana. "Sativa" debuts at #4.
A year or two apart from each other, Young Thug and Lil Yachty were both once the most divisive figures in rap, so it only makes sense that they've collaborated a few times now. "On Me" is taken from an upcoming Quality Control compilation, and it debuts at #3.
2. Tory Lanez - Shooters
As I mentioned before, Tory Lanez's last two tracks have both come in on Fridays, so they haven't had much time to rack up views before we tally the final weekly numbers for Top Tracks. For that reason, the first of those, "Shooters," debuted at #5 last week but is now up three places to clock in at #2 in its second week out.
A new Kendrick verse is always in competition to go #1, and this is quite the Kendrick verse. "New Freezer" itself isn't that bad by itself either, and surprising no one, it debuts at #1.
