Bey-Z rises from the rubble unscathed. Amber Rose pulls a J-Lo with her almost-not-a-dress. Nicki pulls her dress together by seams. RiFF RaFF, Katy Perry and Taylor Swift play their positions clumsily and look really and truly not cool bruh. Check the pics and videos after the jump.

Didn’t know it was possible to darken Havoc’s “Quiet Storm” but this does it…with a manic Meek shouting over a horror-core chirp. It’s an unsure flossing song in the run-up to an album (Dreams Worth More Than Money) that may arrive with its creator in prison. Maybe that’s the happiest place for a Philly outlaw though. Check the track after the jump.

Paving his road with good intentions, TJ stumbles into this hot social debate with some pre-cooked, slowed-down, sentimental nothingness. Nonetheless, good intentions. Listen after the jump.

As it turns out, up is down this year and down is up. Spooky Black, who is this unassuming kid from St. Paul, Minnesota, dropped this homage to deep house and challenging R&B. He’s moaning and emoting remarkably well for someone with few life experiences and even fewer facial whiskers. His slow chants should not be left in the hands of emo teenagers locked in their rooms…cuz sh*t is deep. Check the spooky visual after the jump.

Grimy street tales told over barrel fires. That’s the churn and gravel of this ditty here and Lil Bibby is troubling and broad and narrative at the same time. What Kevin Gates brings to the thoughtful hustler type, Bibby brings to the ruthless kingpin figure. Track after the jump.

Lil Herb, like Lil Bibby, Lil Durk and Lil Reese, is a Chi-town hustler rapper. Where he lacks in finesse, he makes up for in pulp. On this one, Common and Chance add the touches of subtlety and sobriety. Com just needs to rap a little faster so he doesn’t give the song such an obvious belly. After the jump.

Lupe uses his open 3rd eye to craft this song that raises cancer awareness and research. Common sounds a little strained for his time but it’s too strong a sentiment to be weighed by a oldhead verse. Plus the vigor from Lupe shows he has a lot of fight in him for the social causes he takes up at a given time.
