All Of These Songs Dropped With Music Videos on November 19th, 2021.
2010 – Earl Sweatshirt
This is the first song that Odd Future alumni Earl Sweatshirt has dropped in nearly a year. As one of the most respected lyricists in the new wave of hip-hop, it’s always worth tuning into what Earl is doing. 2010 has an extremely unique beat, which is typical for his sound – however this beat is much lighter than a typical Earl Sweatshirt track.
Never Fail – Morray ft. Benny The Butcher
Morray has had one of the hottest years of any artist, his hit single Quicksand was released in early 2021 and since he’s been co-signed by major names. On this track Morray teams up with Benny the Butcher making for a unique contrast in styles. Griselda meets the South on Never Fail.
Black Illuminati – Freddie Gibbs & Jadakiss
Jadakiss is capitalizing off of the momentum set fourth by his standout performance at the LOX vs. Dipset VERZUZ. Kiss pairs incredibly with veteran MC and one of the hottest rappers in the game, Freddie Gibbs. This is music to mean mug to – throw it on and act hard for a few minutes.
RIP Young Remix – Isaiah Rashad ft. Juicy J & Project Pat
Whereas the first three songs on this list are music to mean mug to, the last two are songs you can vibe to. On the lead up to the Three Six Mafia VERZUZ, Isaiah Rashad has collaborated with OG’s Juicy J and Project Pat. Not only are Project Pat and Juicy J some of the largest purveyors of crunk music, they are biological brothers who have grown together in the rap game. Give this unexpected remix a listen.
East Nashville – R.A.P Ferreira
All of these songs represent segments of the country and different segments of the underground. R.A.P Ferreira is the king of what I would consider the “indie underground.” For the roll out of his last album Bob’s Son – R.A.P Ferreira created a virtual cafe where fans could preview his music in the middle of the COVID-19 lockdown. If you’ve never heard of R.A.P Ferreira you may have known him under the name Milo which he built his career under.
