We’re highlighting the standout songs from this week’s new releases—T.I.’s ‘Dime Trap,’ Lil Baby & Gunna’s ‘Drip Harder,’ and Sheck Wes’ ‘MUDBOY’—that you should definitely keep in rotation now (and later).
With so many new rap albums, mixtapes, EPs and songs dropping every week, knowing which ones are worth your time can be a challenge. But no worries, we’ll help smooth out the process with ‘Now N’ Laters,’ a column that highlights the hottest new releases of the week and the songs you’ll want to listen to now—and later.
T.I., Dime Trap
“Big Ol Drip”: T.I. gets his flex on while kicking knowledge on this regal selection, and early highlight, from the Bankhead legend’s tenth LP.
“At Least I Know”: Anderson .Paak lends his vocal prowess to this track, one of the more radio-friendly offerings from Dime Trap that finds Tip atoning for his missteps in matters of the heart.
“You”: Hooking up with Teyana Taylor, this inspirational number finds the former trap lord-turned-mogul passing down gems to the next generation.
Lil Baby & Gunna, Drip Harder
“Off White Vlone”: Lil Baby and Gunna kick off their collaborative project with a big bang by hooking up with Lil Durk and NAV, with all four spitters dropping ostentatious bars over production by Turbo.
“My Jeans”: As one of the more impressive songs, “My Jeans” pairs the duo with Young Thug, who turns in a show-stealing performance that ranks among the best on the album and contributes to the track’s replay value.
“Never Recover”: Tay Keith helms the boards on the LP’s closing selection, which finds the two getting added reinforcement from Drake, who reels off a standout opening verse that continues his streak of high-powered guest spots in 2018.
Sheck Wes, MUDBOY
“Live Sheck Wes”: As one of the first tracks on MUDBOY that catches the ear as an instant standout, the Cactus Jack signee walks listeners through his Harlem stomping grounds and his life prior to becoming one of 2018’s hottest new artists.
“Kyrie”: After his breakout hit “Mo Bamba” catapulted him to fame, Sheck Wes pays homage to another pro baller with this Redda-produced track dedicated to the current point guard of the Boston Celtics and one of the best players in the league.
“Fuck Everybody”: Sheck Wes gives all his detractors the middle finger on this brooding selection produced by YungLunchBox. “Fuck Everybody” captures Sheck Wes’ unbridled rage amid booming kicks, snares and guitar licks and is sure to incite a riot or two.
