This week we bring you some of our favorite slaps. If you’re feeling down and out that Princess Nokia track is for you. If someone isn’t taking you seriously check out the Aflacko joint. Honestly just listen to everything because we worked hard on hand-picking this week’s selection of slaps. No hands were harmed in the making of this list.


Skizzy Mars – Greedy

Skizzy Mars aka Miles Mills delivers a new EP ARE YOU OK? with a track called “Greedy.” The Harlem born rapper raps about missing a woman over wild guitar riffs.


Young Thug (ft. Lil Uzi Vert)

Young Thug breaks his hiatus with his new EP Hear No Evil. The three track EP features the likes of Nicki Minaj, 21 Savage and Lil Uzi. If you want stellar wordplay and pretend you’re a rockstar, this is the one for you.


Aflacko – Cut It Out (ft. Ty Dolla Sign)

Bay Area prodigy Aflacko drops a new song with LA’s own Ty Dolla $ign. Ty Dolla $ign was found slapping Aflacko’s “Most Hated” on Instagram live and days later found himself blessed with a verse from the R&B crooner. This is the first big feature we’ve seen from Aflacko and we’re sure it’s not the last.


Tinashe – Me So Bad (ft. Ty Dolla $ign & French Montana)

Tinashe shows off her vocal range with her pop hit “Me So Bad” featuring the likes of Ty Dolla $ign and French Montana. The playful video shows the three at a tennis court having a ball. Watch the video above.  


Princess Nokia – For The Night

Princess Nokia channels emo and hip-hop together in her new mixtape A Girl Cried Red. In the track “For the Night” Nokia sings about making money to recover her broken heart while playful experimenting with her flow.


Calvin Harris, Dua Lipa – One Kiss

Calvin Harris links up with European Star Dua Lipa for the song One Kiss. Lipa insists that “one kiss” will you make you fall in love with her. This deep house masterpiece will for sure sweep you off your feet.


ALLBLACK – Big Shit (ft. Nef The Pharaoh & Rex Life Raj)

ALLBLACK links up with Nef The Pharaoh and Rexx Life Raj and laces the track with the bay area swag we all know and love! Throughout the song you’ll hear Nef The Pharaoh, Rex LIfe Raj, and ALLBLACK talking that Big Sh*t!


Cautious Clay – Broken Moments

Shortly after releasing his debut EP Blood Type, Brooklyn singer Cautious Clay gives us a new single. Cautious Clay elegantly sings about coming to terms with being lonely.


August 08 – Lately

With just his second single, August 08 is subtly gearing up to release his debut project.  August combines a soft falsetto and impeccable songwriting to create the track “Lately.”


Spencer – Open Wide

We don’t know much about newcomer Spencer, outside of the fact he makes really really good music. If you’re a fan of drum loops and guitars you’ll love this new single featuring Ishmael Raps.
