1.)Come and See – PartyNextDoor ft. Drake

Pretty much everybody is anticipating the new Drake album, but maybe we should all be anticipating the next PartyNextDoor album. This song is slow, sad, and catchy perfect for mainstream radio, and even more perfect for girls to gush over.

2.)5 Foot Assassin: Larry Fisherman Tribute – Mac Miller

Mac Miller’s haunting tribute to Phife Dawg. Phife Dawg, hip hop legend, and former A Tribe Called Quest member passed this week due to complications with diabetes. All our prayers go out to his family and loved ones.

3.)Good – Kye Colors

Kye Colors is a Kansas City rapper, who I shouted out in my latest Artists To Watch Column. This week he released a new song called Good. The song features pretty dark production and lyrics, and might be a left over from his latest project 00 that dropped this month.

4.)Get My Shit Together – Big Sean

Big Sean has been hinting that he has been hitting the studio a lot recently. From his twitter bio to this tweet he has been teasing fans all year. This week he released a song for his birthday. Could this song mean Sean is releasing his next project sometime within the next few weeks? Probably not, but the song is fantastic so check it out.

5.)I FEEL YOUR PAIN – SBTRKT ft. D.R.A.M. & Mabel

SBTRKT released his new project titled SAVE YOURSELF this week. It’s the artists first release since 2014, and it’s absolutely fantastic. The upbeat production combined with D.R.A.M.’s energy makes for a perfect song to danec to.

6.)Drippin – Young Thug

After announcing Slime Season 3 with a funeral as SXSW  Yung Thug dropped the album this week. I will not be reviewing the album, but it’s definitely worth a listen if you like trap music.
