Joyner Lucas, Westside Gunn, Lil Wayne, & More

We’ve finally made it past the post-Certified Lover Boy and DONDA rush, and although we’re still waiting for Kendrick Lamar to drop his new album before truly being satisfied with this year’s music as hip-hop lovers, we’re starting to get a good look at how our year-end lists will gear up.

With all of the recent new music that has dropped, we’ve been busier than in previous weeks, making sure we stay on top of everything in order to update all of our playlists accordingly. This weekend, our new artist discovery series returned, and we also updated the Fire Emoji and R&B Season playlists on Spotify. Over on TIDAL and SoundCloud, we’ve officially got a new update for the Staff Picks playlist, showing you what we’ve all been listening to as we pump out article-after-article.

One of the largest playlists in recent weeks, we’ve for thirty-eight songs waiting for you to dive into from Joyner Lucas (with J. Cole), D Smoke, Westside Gunn, YoungBoy Never Broke Again, and others. On the R&B side, our writers have been vibing primarily with Tems, Alina Baraz, and NAO. All of which have earned a few spots on this week’s update.

Check out what each writer chose for the playlist this week and be sure to follow us on SoundCloud and TIDAL.
