Yasiin Bey, "Dec 99th - Local Time"
The "No More Parties In S.A." saga continues as the MC formerly known as Mos Def moans away on his new cut. From the latest changing of his name to the repeated phrase of the song's title, it seems as if Yasiin is struggling with his personal predicament (forced to staying in South Africa even if he loves it there). While I doubt, he's doing anything that isn't already pre-planned, which is why his songs are structured the way they are, a certain kind of sorrow and pain can be felt. I'm no therapist, and a man's art is a man's art—and it's all subjective but one can't help but question. Nonetheless, "Local Time" is Yasiin's best effort under the Dec 99th pseudonym. —Rob Hansen
G-Eazy, "Saw It Coming" Feat. Jeremih
G-Eazy and Jeremih answer the call for the "Ghostbusters" soundtrack, teaming up on a brand new collaboration called "Saw It Coming." Trading smooth vocals on the animated anthem, Jeremih sings, "Something's got you up all night/ Tell me who you're gonna call." Meanwhile, G-Eazy spits bars about his rise. "Always been the underdog/ Dogs keeps climbing up," he raps. Then, he ties it all together by adding, "What's a ghost to a shotgun?" The soundtrack, which also features cameos from Fall Out Boy and Missy Elliott, is set to drop July 15, the same day the movie is scheduled to hit theaters. The film stars an all-female reboot cast including Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones. —Shante' Merida
Eric Bellinger, "Don't Mind (E-Mix)"
As a single begins to gain traction, remixes are inevitable today and Kent Jones' "Don't Mind" is no exception. Eric Bellinger released his own version of "Don’t Mind" featuring a more slowed-down, sultry R&B synth vibe. Bellinger croons over the track and turns it from its original catchy dance anthem to a bedroom banger. —Bryce Thompson
David Lara, "Remember"
If PARTYNEXTDOOR and Bryston Tiller had a musical child with the falsetto abilities of dvsn, you would end up with Moreno Valley, CA singer David Lara. Although he is able to showcase his singing abilities in his latest single "Remember," hopefully along the way he will find more of his own lane. But, we can't knock him for jumping on the Trap Soul train. This doesn't take away from the song being nice and him having an amazing vocal range. Definitely keep an eye out for him, especially when he opens for Jacquees in Phoenix on June 23rd. —Erin Ashley Simon
