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!

Louisiana rapper Young Roddy recently shared the cover art, track list, and first single from his highly-anticipated debut album The Kenner Loop. Furthermore, Young Roddy been building a tremendous following from his frequent and show-stealing collaborations with Curren$y, Juvenile, Styles P, Smoke DZA and Trademark Da Skydiver, among others, as well as through his Good Sense mixtape series.

The track puts Roddy’s hunger on display: “[I’ve] been on my grizzly making money all day.” Additionally, the production, handeled by Blair Norf, features a sample of the eclectic blend of smooth tracks and hustler anthems found on The Kenner Loop. The Kenner Loop will hit stores worldwide on December 4th via GOOD$ENSE / iHipHop Distribution, but you may pre-order the album right now on iTunes.

Hot off the release of his latest project, Thrilla Vol. 1, the Baton Rogue badazz, Boosie, is sharing the visuals for his tribute to his idol in “Letter to 2 Pac”. “First of all I want to let you know that you’re really missed,” raps Boosie, while penning a literal letter to the fallen great. “Probably be nobody better, real shit/ All through my life, you inspired me, dawg/ When you died, I really cried/ I wanted to ride for you, dawg.” Emotional. Check out Boosie Badazz’ heartfelt salute to 2Pac after the jump, and be sure to get Thrilla Vol. 1 (featuring Rich Homie Quan, Snootie Wild, Hurricane Chris) on iTunes while you’re at it.

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.

tinashe-sway

Make no mistake, Tinashe is a burgeoning star in today’s music industry. But she’s also a burgeoning star with a wide range of talents. Don’t believe me? Well, on top of being one of the best (and dare I say underrated) contemporary R&B singer-songwriters, she can also hold her own when it comes to this rap thing, too. Don’t believe me? Tinashe recently stopped by Sway in the Morning to discuss her tour with Nicki Minaj and Katy Perry in Latin America, but was eventually put on the spot by Sway himself to deliver a freestyle. Tinashe, being a woman of her word, did indeed kick a freestyle — albeit with a hint of singing thrown in — with a quality outcome. Don’t believe me? Hit the play button after the jump.

Lil B, the prolific Berkeley, CA rapper, is looking to drop his latest mixtape Thugged Out Pissed Out shortly (first since collaborating with Chance the Rapper back in August), and he’s already sharing its first offering in a bit of urban menace many have forgotten existed within The BasedGod’s mutated rap DNA. The track–along with a standard DIY music video for YouTube–finds Lil B going over an eerie beat, rapping about “the underworld” which, according to Lil B, he was “raised up” in. Additionally, Lil B directly acknowledges chart-topping Canadian recording artist The Weeknd (whose stock only continues to rise) with lyrics like “Call me Lil Bars with the XO Bars/ Saying fuck The Weeknd, I can’t sing that soft”, and “A lot of suckas fake, so I can’t respect it/ Fuck The Weeknd, put that on record,” rapped repeatedly–apparently BasedGod really doesn’t like the singer-songwriter. Curious? Check out Lil B’s “4 Tha Record” after the jump, and stay tuned for his forthcoming Thugged Out Pissed Out mixtape.

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.

jeremih-royalty

The reclusive Jeremih has come out of the shadows today, revealing not one, but two new tracks. It must be a beautiful day wherever Jeremih is today. To be treated to a pair of Jeremih songs in a single day seems improbable, and not at all hyperbolic — this is the guy who hasn’t released a full length project since 2012 with his excellent Late Nights With Jeremih mixtape. Add in one cup of hit single (2014’s “Don’t Tell Em”) and a dash of album anticipation (Late Nights, his first since 2010) and Jeremih has quickly generated a lot of hype. Here he’s got Future and Big Sean to help give “Royalty” that extra oomph. It’s a solid track, and along with “Oui” we’re also hyped for the new Jeremih album here at iHipHop. Although it’ll be some time until there’s new info for Late Nights, we have “Royalty” to hold us over — after the jump!

fabolous-wegood-slide1

Back in August, Fabolous released a loosie track — entitled ”Gone for the Winter” — and he’s kept quiet since. Fittingly, just as the temperature’s rising, Fab is back with the heat the fans desperately needed. Teaming up with Atlanta’s Rich Homie Quan, Fabolous goes full Dead Presidents in the visuals for ”We Good” — a track that first appeared on his Young OG Project last year. Additionally, the grim visuals (featuring face paint and shootouts) are apt for Halloween, which is tomorrow! Fab has also teased at the notion of dropping a new project, Summertime Shootout, but we’ve yet to hear anything from that. In the meantime, check out Fabolous’ ”We Good” video featuring Rich Homie Quan after the jump.

Last month, 9th Wonder and Talib Kweli — under the pseudonym Indie 500 — were graciously joined by West Coasters Problem and Bad Lucc. Today, they’re sharing the powerful visuals from their latest track, ”Which Side Are You On”, featuring another pair of guests in Tef Poe and Kendra Ross. Furthermore, Kweli revealed the concept behind ”Which Side Are You On”, as well as it’s moving video. Kweli says the song ”pays homage to those murdered by the police over the past year and those who have taken a stand” and that the video — which contains footage from the Ferguson Rocks and Ferguson Is Everywhere fundraiser — features Tom Morello, Bun B, Common, Outernational, Cornel West, Pharoahe Monch, Jasiri X, M-1 of dead prez and K’Valentine all of whom ”participated in the August concerts”. You may hit the play button on ”Which Side Are You On” after the jump.

With Halloween just around the corner, rap music is already preparing itself for the festivities. Rightfully so, it’s a season that’s ripe for conceptually interesting rap music. There’s even an entire subgenre within rap which, lest we forget, brazenly deals with the macabre. Although Sheek Louch makes rap music far from the ”horrorcore” style, his latest cut, ”Sucka Free” — featuring fellow D-Block rapper Jadakiss, no less — is a clinical bloodbath. Sheek makes work of the song, which is backed by a jagged and distorted beat. Additionally, Jadakiss’ guest spot — while perfectly adequate — discovers the Brooklyn emcee getting into holiday season early with an equally wicked verse. Check out Sheek Louch’s ”Sucka Free” from his forthcoming Gorillaween mixtape dropping October 31st.

Kendrick Lamar continues sharing the visuals from his excellent sophomore album, To Pimp a Butterfly. After sharing ”i”, ”King Kunta”, ”Alright”, and ”For Free? (Interlude)”, he returns with an epic video treatment for ”These Walls”, which has been accurately subtlted as ”A Black Comedy” — it’s directed by Colin Tilley & the Little Homies, and stars comedian Corey Holcolmb and actor Terry Crews. Both Kendrick and Crews ”hit the quan”, as well. Worthy of your eight minutes of the day — check it out after the jump.
