Latto Feat. Megan Thee Stallion & Flo Milli – “Sunday Service (Remix)”

2024 Streamcut & RCA Records

Latto invited Flo Milli and Megan Thee Stallion to “Sunday Service” as if they had a sleepover the night before and their lyrics push that idea further. Milli acknowledges her callipygian despite being petite. Though she’s no R&B singer, she likes Jodeci to soundtrack her sexual escapades. Meg acknowledges her biggest critics, how people move the goalpost when it comes to her, and the fact that men who previously wanted her are now her biggest haters. In the end, you get three of rap’s prominent women affirming themselves and dismissing the competition. The Lord may not have ordained the crude lyrics, but surely many women who hear this will feel like they’ve just heard a powerful sermon. – Armon Sadler

Lupe Fiasco – “Cake”

Lupe Fiasco 'Samurai' Album Cover

1st and 15th too

Lupe Fiasco is baking his lyricism into his fans’ minds on “Cake,” the Chicagoan’s second single from his forthcoming studio album Samurai, set to drop later this month. Produced by Soundtrakk and Kush Baby, the release contains dexterous couplets from Lupe, who marvels at his own rhyme spills while thanking the public for their listenership. “Compliments on my accomplishments are only possible/ Due to your involvement, volume level, and confidence,” he raps on the opening bar of the intro verse, an acknowledgment of those who have supported him over the past two decades and beyond. – Preezy Brown

Cash Cobain – “Rump Punch”

2024 Giant Music

Cash Cobain’s “Rump Punch” is a more gentle offering than his latest track, “Fisherrr,” and his feature on “Attitude.” It plays like the party is over, and he’s trying to convince a woman to come home with him after they enjoyed cups of rum punch (or rather rump punch) together. It is also one of his most impressive lyrical displays, with a myriad of flows but also not overpowering the calm production. The Bronx sexy drill innovator continues to impress. Now, he has a song that can play at the height of the function and a song to play when people are preparing to leave. Slizzy Summer is in full effect. – AS

Moneybagg Yo – “Play Da Fool”

2024 CMG/N-Less/Interscope Records

Moneybagg Yo has been quietly dropping banger after banger and “Play Da Fool” continues that streak. The best part is he isn’t straying away from his proven successful format: aggressive flow, catchy bars, big flexes, and arena-ready production. He adds a layer of awareness to this track and resolves to not be influenced by other people. “Somethin’ keep tellin’ me, somethin’ keep tellin’ me/ Keep it cool, play da fool, somethin’ keep tellin’ me,” he raps. There is power in staying on your pivot despite people trying to convince you to do otherwise. Bagg is willing to hear everyone out, but he sticks to his path and that produces a salient, hard record. Despite what the title conveys, he is no fool. – AS

YG Feat. Kaliii, Stunna Girl – “Shake”


℗ 2024 4Hunnid Music Inc. under exclusive license to BMG Rights Management (US) LLC

YG continues his onslaught of releases with “SHAKE,” a twerk-friendly anthem featuring Kaliii and Stunna Girl. Produced by Low the Great & IsThatTrey, the track finds YG commanding the ladies to “make it clap, shake it fast” and vowing never to disclose the secrets of his various lovers. Swooping in on the second verse, Kaliii turns in a blistering stanza that brings the song to a new plateau, while Stunna Girl holds down the fort with her own rhyme spill to close out the collaboration. – PB

Smino – Polynesian


℗ 2024 Zero Fatigue Records

Smino delivered a breezy jam with this Chik-Fil-A-inspired groove with the St. Louis native sauntering over a backdrop scored by Asean Bwoy & Cade. “Polynesian, I got sauce even on a Sunday,” Smino boasts on the hook before running down the intricacies of his game, toying with varying deliveries and flows throughout the track. “Polynesian” is a brief respite from the wait for Smino’s anticipated follow-up to his 2022 album Luv 4 Rent and is right in time for the season of relaxation that’s upon us. – PB

The Game – Time

The Game 'Time' Album Cover

℗ 2024 STB Entertainment

The Game threw a curveball in the form of a switcheroo on his new album, Time, where he showcases Woodboy Gee, a newcomer the West Coast vet has taken under his wing and bet the bank on. After realizing The Game is a no-show on the album, it becomes apparent that Woodboy Gee is a voice worth listening to. Plus, he displays solid lyrical chops, songwriting skills, and the presence to hold down a track in a collaborative setting or by his lonely. – PB

Larry June – “Dreams”

2024 The Freeminded Records / EMPIRE

Larry June’s “Dreams” is aptly named. The production, blending West Coast synths and drums, sounds like the soundtrack to a movie one makes while sleeping. He makes his life sound like a dream, as many women pine for him as he lives freely. June’s strength is his calm, cool, and collected delivery, which rears its head on this record. The track is almost a tease, as right when the listener gets into it, it finishes up at two minutes and 27 seconds. However, it is accurate to real life; there are some dreams one may not want to wake up from, but they can’t always get what they want. Thus, they continue chasing that high. – AS

Hunxho – Before The Album

Hunxho’s romantic life has garnered him an increased amount of tabloid fodder recently, but the Atlanta native looks to put the focus back on his talents with Before The Album. Consisting of nine tracks, the album captures its author in an emotive state, as he reflects on his highs and lows and lessons learned along his path to stardom. Standouts include the opening salvo “Ups & Downs,” “Do This For Me,” “Can’t Fall Off,” and “Y’all Get It,” the latter of which finds him contemplating blowing six figures in his hometown’s most infamous gentleman’s club. Concluding the long-player with the aptly titled “Last Song,” Hunxho turns in a strong offering to tide fans over until his next release. – PB

Wynne – “Rug Burn”

2024 101 LLC / Right Hand Music Group / Genius Distro

Wynne usually brags about the men she toys around with, but “Rug Burn” finds her on the other side of heartbreak. But this is more than just wallowing in despair; it’s a rallying cry for women to shake off their former partners who didn’t value them and stand tall. “Girl get up, why you on the floor?/ Crying? We’re not crying anymore.” Seeing her utilize her creative lyricism on a more vulnerable canvas is refreshing. The track plays more like a therapy session than a rapping exhibition, though the downtempo production still utilizes knocking drums and hi-hats. In the end, it feels like the man is the loser despite the fact he is the one who chose to end things. – AS
