Welcome to Magnetic's brand new Hip Hop & R&B chart. Hip hop specific submissions should be sent to Ben@magneticmag.com. Now lets break down some of the freshest tracks to hit the net this week.
"Stay Focused" - ShaqIsDope
The 22 year old Toronto based MC is only just beginning to show off his true potential. His wordplay and flow fit perfectly over this Pitt Tha Kid produced track that takes listeners on a smooth ride through his own thought process.
"AfroPhunk" (Feat. SiR & Joyce Wrice) - Jay Prince
Jay Prince Music
From the upcoming project "Beautiful Mercy", this self produced track is another winner from one of my favorite UK artists.
"Untitled" (Produced By 4REAL) - GoldLink
This unreleased Goldlink gem from last year was liberated by 4REAL and will probably be removed next week. Enjoy it while you can.
"I Know" f. Mick Jenkins - Kirk Knight
Krik Knight has been making incredible beats for as long as I've known about him but his new project "Late Knight Special" is next level.
"Almighty Dollar" - Pell
Federal Prism Records
2015 has been a big year for Pell and his album "LIMBO" drops in 11/6. You can pre-order it here.
"B.Q.P." feat. Feat. Peedi Crakk, Sean Price, Royal Flush & Illa Ghee - MoSS
MoSS Appeal Music
Nothing but savages on this track. RIP Sean P.
"Jumanji" (ft. Busta Rhymes) - Joyner Lucas
Joyner Lucas Music
3 minutes of straight fire as far as the lyrics go. It sounds like Busta might have been a little tipsy there at the end.
"Winning 3" - Young Sizzle
The third single to be released from Young Sizzle's "Free Agent 3" Mixtape is by far the best I've heard. This is a straight banger and should be played with as much bass as possible.
"Caretaker" Feat. SZA (Extended Version) - D.R.A.M
Go download "GAHDAMN!" for your girl right now. You can thank me later.
