A week back Ghostface Killah announced his forthcoming album 36 Seasons (his thirteenth full length album to date), which will be dropping December 9th.

Rozay continues the monumental rollout for his forthcoming album Hood Billionaire (due out November 24th). He’s already dropped “Keep Doin’ That (Rich B*tch)”, “If They Knew”, “Nickel Rock”, “Movin’ Bass”, and “Trap Luv” so it only makes sense that he drops yet another Hood Billionaire cut. At this point it feels like you’ve heard the album already, no? Anyway… this time around it’s the Metro Boomin produced track “Neighborhood Drug Dealer”. Listen after the jump.

Project Pat shows his age with his new single “Twerk It”, a song about a cultural trend that is on its way out the door.

Ty Dolla $ign knows one thing and one thing only: make hits. In 2014 the West Coast singer/rapper held his own with a string of co-writing credits for major chart-topping singles, including Chris Brown’s smash “Loyal”. Now Ty gets some help (as if he needed it to begin with) from big time music producer and overall hotshot, Diplo. In addition the underrated (but certainly not forgotten) DJ Dahi also receives production credit for “Stand For”. Listen after the jump!

A$AP and their promises… tsk tsk. We already know how that story goes. But despite the constant push backs, delays, and flat out projects being scrapped the A$AP Mob is good at dropping that heat when everyone is least expecting it. You may recall Rocky dropping the aggressive “Multiply” out of the blue back in early October and looks as though Ferg is following suit with the equally menacing and braggadocios new cut “Perfume”. To sum up Ferg’s new song in one word: banger. “Perfume”, produced by Philo$ Cult, is set to appear on his upcoming Gangsta Grillz mixtape, Ferg Forever. But we’ll see about that. Listen after the jump!
