Oh, you weren’t expecting some new Kendrick Lamar so fast? Yeah, yeah, we all love To Pimp a Butterfly — but let’s be real here, we can definitely use some more Kendrick for the summer. Here he teams up with Bilal (who is a super underrated R&B singer/songwriter and was featured on To Pimp a Butterfly) for “Money Over Love.” The track, which is Bilal’s, is set to appear on his forthcoming album Another Life, produced in its entirety by Adrian Younge. Check out “Money Over Love” after the jump.

Vince Staples is not only one of the best young rap talents emerging right now but he’s also a confident young man with great viewpoints. Lat night Staples made an appearance on “The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore”, sitting in on a panel alongside comedians Mark Yard and Gina Yashere. They discussed whether or not they’d vote for an unmarried presidential candidate, and if there’s a prejudice against single people. “Most of the people in my generation who want to get married aren’t allowed to get married,” Staples pointed out. Also, Staples’ album Summertime ’06 is out June 30 via Blacksmith/Artium/Def Jam. Check out the video after the jump.

HALLWAYS makes a bold first step with the single “Problems,” which is as Tribe Called Quest fun as it is Pharaohe Monch dour. That’s the great quality of Homeboy Sandman, who makes no qualms about explaining his moods, affectations and joys. We were sweating the single when it dropped. Here’s the video after the jump.

Yo Gotti asks an important question: if everybody’s doing it, what makes it special? This is probably his most meta track, calling into question most of hip hop’s modern existence by comparing it to itself. Strangely, he uses suburban white kids copying urban style to make the point. Ominous much? Check the video after the jump.

She of the “controversial” art work is here with the song behind the cheeky cover. We were moved to talk butt politics when it first appeared as a Nicki Instagram post. How is the track in comparison to the amazing duo of the cover? Fairly, it objectifies men in the way that Nicki gets objectified every day. Appropriate subversion noted. Listen after the jump.
