Check out Dirty South Hip Hop’s rundown of hottest new tracks below.
Busta Rhymes – “CZAR” (feat. M.O.P.)
After an eight year hiatus, Busta Rhymes has released a star-studded new album, Extinction Level Event 2: The Wrath of God. The first Extinction Level project dropped in 1998.
The tracklist includes some of hip-hop’s biggest acts from the past and present including Chris Rock, Rakim, Pete Rock, M.O.P., Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Q-Tip, Rick Ross, Anderson .Paak, Vybz Kartel, Rapsody, Mariah Carey, Mary J. Blige, and Kendrick Lamar.
Kendrick’s verse on “Look Over Your Shoulder” is his first appearance on a song at all this year. Check out the full story on Kendrick’s return here.
Trippie Redd – “Kid That Didd” (feat. Future & Doe Boy)
Trippie Redd has unleashed his new 26 song long epic, Pegasus, with features from Future, Young Thug, PARTYNEXTDOOR, Busta Rhymes, Quavo, Sean Kingston, Swae Lee, Lil Wayne and more. The album launched last night with Trippie Redd sponsored drive-in movie screenings in New York City, Los Angeles, Atlanta, and Miami, where the rapper and his fans could watch the 1992 version of Candyman and 2001’s Jeepers Creepers “together.”
“I really just miss seeing my fans,” Trippie said about the drive-ins. “I figured these events would be a good way to celebrate Pegasus with them.”
Trippie’s last album, A Love Letter To You 4, peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 charts.
Lil Keed – “Emotional” (feat. Quavo)
Most artists put out 5-10 new songs for their deluxe editions, (or an official chopped-not-slopped in 21 Savage‘s case.) Lil Keed has topped them all, releasing 18 new tracks for the Trapped On Cleveland 3 deluxe edition. The YSL star is joined by some of Atlanta’s biggest acts including his mentor Young Thug, his brother Lil Gotit, labelmate Gunna, as well as Quavo, O.T. Genasis, and more.
Look out for Keed on Drake’s upcoming album as well. In a recent interview he said, “[Drake] sent me this hard-ass beat that I did and I sent it back to him. He probably did something with it, I just ain’t hear it. You know how that shit goes.”
More new music, fresh from the Dirty South.
