B.o.B. is sharing a loosie (pun intended) on this beautiful Wednesday evening, and although his home state of Ohio isn’t entirely down with the legalization of marijuana, that isn’t stopping ol’ Bobby Ray from sparking up. The latest track from B.o.B. is “Roll Up”, which–like its title suggests–is about the little substance we call marijuana (or loud, if you’re hip to the lingo). Here are some sample lyrics from the track to read along while you decompress from your busy workday: “Sometimes I get high to free my mind/ Is that alright? right right right”. And if those lyrics tickle your fancy, you can sing along to B.o.B.’s “Roll Up” after the jump!

Rich Homie Quan’s name recently appeared on Young Thug’s Halloween-themed Slime Season 2 mixtape–something many weren’t expecting after their dissolution. This seemingly small bit of information is actually crucial to the story of Quan and Thug because these two once sparring partners haven’t collaborated on a new track since their Rich Gang days. And although the track in question (“Never Made Love”) is an oldie, as well–recorded during those pivotal RG days–its appearance on Young Thug’s latest mixtape could hint at future collaborations between the two Atlanta rappers. However, Quan does have a new solo track with “Carlito”, a track that’s produced by Goose (also one of Thug’s main collaborators), and it’s a solid number overall that potentially hints at what his forthcoming debut album may sound like. Hit the play button on Rich Homie Quan’s “Carlito” after the jump.

It was a matter of time until Rick Ross jumped on that Drake and Future “Jumpman” joint, so here it is. The track, which is currently No. 12 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts, has been making steady moves across the hip-hop community, as well as remixed and freestyled over quite a bit — especially within the last two weeks. And naturally we’re getting a Rozay treatment of the buzzing single from What a Time to Be Alive. After rocking with Post Malone’s “White Iverson”, Future’s “Stick Talk”, and even Adele’s “Hello”, it’s evident that Rick Ross has his ears to good tunes. Listen to Rozay’s latest take — “Jumpman” — after the jump.
