1. Snoop Dogg - "Heaven"
Snoop Dogg/Lion has been going through quite some changes recently, but he always makes sure to remember his homies. The gangster rapper-turned-Rastafari released "Heaven," in honor of deceased friends Mr. Magic—the recently departed No Limit soldier—Big Herc, Nate Dogg and Tupac. As Snoop says, "Heaven wouldn't be the same without you"—and it's true when it comes to these fallen hip-hop heavyweights.
2. Sir Michael Rocks - "Money Came"
Remember The Cool Kids? If you don't, Sir Mikey is happy to remind you with this new single. "Money Came" is definitely the next strip club anthem, with its slow, keyboard-led beat and lyrics like, "Money came/Money go/P***y came/P***y go." The producer for the track is yet to be named, but it definitely sounds like Chuck Inglish and Rocks made a brief reunion. "Money Came" comes off of Rocks' upcoming mixtape, Banco—due out in the near future.
3. Chuck Inglish (feat. Travi$ Scott) - "Back Up (Remix)"
Producer/rapper Chuck Inglish is making a name of his own, after being 1/2 of the duo The Cool Kids for quite some time. With "Back Up," Inglish is at his best lyrically, while effortlessly boasting, "Ya'll didn't bring s**t back/Man, ya'll n***as know better!" G.O.O.D. Music's Travi$ Scott brings his unique lyrics to the beat-bumping single, and matches Inglish's style perfectly. "Back Up" is off Inglish's upcoming solo debut album, Convertibles.
4. D'Angelo (feat. Questlove) - "She's Always In My Hair (Prince Cover)
It's been too long since we've heard D'Angelo's soulful voice. Carnegie Hall is greatly appreciated for hosting a tribute to Prince, and allowing D'Angelo and Questlove to break it down for us on this song. "Always In My Hair" was definitely an irreplaceable hit, but we don't mind hearing D'Angelo putting his own spin on it, in the least bit. With his amazing voice on the track, and Questlove contributing his elite drum skills to it, this is an instant classic cover.
5. Valentino Khan - "40 OZ"
Valentino Khan is back once again with #TRAPTHURSDAYS, and he has us all the way turnt up. "40 OZ" has a crazy hip-hop/house beat to it, and the minimal amount of lyrics are just right. All that is needed for this song is a drink, a dance floor and a reason to act a fool.
