Jeremih’s “Don’t Tell Em” has enjoyed a steady ascent on the charts so naturally everyone wants to jump on the remix. And with production from DJ Mustard, it’s only right that some of hip-hop’s biggest names would want to be on the official remix. Both French Montana and Ty Dolla Sign find themselves having fun with the song; Ty Dolla Sign sings about the World Cup and French Montana delivers an awesome Bobby Brown reference. Listen after the jump.

This is too much. Not in a bad way either. Musical duo Octave Minds, a hybrid of Boyz Noise and Chilly Gonzales’s instrumental work, gave Chance the right backdrop to caterwaul all crazy on a song. Chance proves he too is a piano — melody and percussion as a fierce two-for-one. Between this piece and the new Arthur theme, Chance The Rapper may be hip hop’s best new theme songwriter. Check it after the jump.

Last year, K. Dot and Pusha T coordinated “Nosetalgia” to trade the gift of crossover into each other’s audiences. Where that smooth but unusual blend surprised us, this one is glued together with a standard Jeezy hook and Kendrick doing his toot-toot-beep-beep rap like R. Kelly on “Ignition.” The stories that might bind their styles are missing but the streets will buzz off this track’s name recognition alone. Check it after the jump.

When you get these two jesters out for a party, something crazy’s bound to happen right?! Frequent partners Bronson and Jody Highroller pack their images with decadence and obliviousness. For every wild night, there’s a memory (or so they flaunt). Check the song 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.

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.

Lil Bibby is a young kid with a grown gruff voice. This makes it seem like his words have more authority than they do. So then, he can get away with saying brash sh*t like “f*ck is you saying? what is you doin? why is you playin?” and it sounds like more than a juvenile threat. This is the ethos of his latest mixtape “Free Crack”. Check “For The Low” after the jump.
