We are back once again to give you what you need - and that, of course, is the top 10 hip-hop tracks of the week. This week's list is a perfect blend of new and old with releases from Joey Bada$$, Smoke DZA and Numonics; Remixes from Funkadelic and DJ Premiere; and this week we highlight a couple of fresh up-and-comers with Jerreau and Hovey Benjamin. Ride into your weekend with our playlist down below and we will be back with more next Friday.
Jerreau — 'Really Got It'
As soon as I heard the beat drop I knew this track belonged on this week’s chart.
Joey Bada$$ - 'Ready' (Prod. By Statik Selektah)
Joey is back with new music and 'Ready' picks up right where he left off. The dopeness continues.
Funkadelic – 'Ain't That Funkin’ Kinda Hard On You?' (feat. Kendrick Lamar & Ice Cube)
This remix is crazy. In all the best ways.
Hovey Benjamin — 'Sweet 16' (ft. Marvel Alexander)
I had no idea who Hovey Benjamin was before this track but it sure is catchy. We will be keeping an eye on this kid.
Smoke DZA – '100K' (Prod. By Harry Fraud)
This is a combo I can get behind. Harry Fraud is just on another level.
Kanye West - 'I Love Kanye' (T.L.O.Preemix)
Premo making Kanye sound less annoying is always a good thing.
Planet Asia & Ras Kass – 'Fire Drills' (Prod. Numonics)
Numonic’s has done it again. Another solid beat with two of the best lyrical MCs in the game. RESPECT.
Raury – 'Home' ft. Take A Daytrip
You can always count on Raury for the feels and the quality. I just love his style of songwriting.
Baauer — 'Kung Fu' ft Pusha T & Future
The names alone on this record are enough to get you interested. The beat probably outshines the bars on this one but it’s still worthy of our time
TUNJI IGE & ILOVEMAKONNEN - 'DON'T DO TOO MUCH'
Tunji Ige does it again! This time he brings ILOVEMAKONEN in on the fun and the result is another party track that the heads are gonna love.
