Hip-hop music comes faster than any other genre in 2018. It's not uncommon for a rapper to drop upwards of three projects a year and while that's great, it becomes increasingly hard to stay on top of it. 'The Rap Wrap' is our attempt to keep you in the know on the weekly. This week, we're hand delivering new tunes from Earl Sweatshirt and A$AP Rocky plus some fresh cuts from new faces like slowthai and AJ Tracey.
A$AP Rocky - Sundress
A$AP Rocky is back just months after the release of his new album TESTING and he's going even further into the psychedelic world with Sundress. It samples Tame Impala's Why Won't You Make Up Your Mind? and it's pretty damn glorious.
Earl Sweatshirt - The Mint (Feat. Navy Blue)
Earl Sweatshirt will finally drop a new record Some Rap Songs next week and this is another new cut from it. The Mint is incredibly raw, giving us lo-fi production and some of the most autobiographical bars of his career.
AJ Tracey - Doing It
British Grime MC AJ Tracey has been gearing up for the release of his debut album and Doing It is the lead single. It's a powerful, straight-up grime cut that reassures us he's one of the best in the biz right now.
Meek Mill - Oodles O' Noodles Babies
Meek Mill will drop his new album Championships this month and he blessed us with a new cut Oodles O' Noodles Babies this week. This is Meek at his absolute best serving honest, autobiographical bars over a vintage, grandiose beat.
slowthai - Doorman (Feat. Mura Masa)
Northampton rapper slowthai brings a punk attitude to his raps and Doorman is the perfect proof of that. He's unexpectedly teamed up with Mura Masa for a song that takes them both out of their comfort zone.
