Each week, we compose a list of newly released songs that we think you should hear. Here are some of the best releases you may have missed this week!
Boogie (feat JID)- “Soho”
Compton-native Boogie taps Dreamville’s JID for a highly anticipated collab! “Soho” is a standout track off of Boogie’s debut album Everythings for Sale. The marriage between Boogie’s flow and the beat is incredible and when you think this track can’t get any better JID comes in with a mean verse. Boogie has cemented his name in the rap game. If Boogie ain’t in your top 5 it may be time to revise.

I’m forced to see em’ using force and still they’re free in court, uh
They pat me down and grab me up
I’m black as fuck, I say it loud
I’m black as fuck
It’s sad to say that dudes as black as me won’t back me up
J.Cole -“MIDDLE CHILD”
Jermaine is starting off the year with his highly anticipated single ‘MIDDLE CHILD”. He teams up with T-Minus to continually demonstrate his importance to the rap game. The song is a reflection of J Cole feeling caught in between two generations ” “I’m dead in the middle of two generations I’m little bro and big bro all at once,” Cole raps on the track. He drops a few golden eggs about Drake, Jay- Z, and 21 Savage. This track comes after the announcement of Revenge of the Dreamer III.
I got a few mil’ but not all of them rich
What good is the bread if my niggas is broke?
What good is first class if my niggas can’t sit?
That’s my next mission, that’s why I can’t quit
Just like LeBron, get my niggas more chips
TOBi – “City Blues
Emerging Nigerian-Canadian artist, TOBi, talents soar on his latest single “City Blues”. His vocals captivate the soul while his lyrics hold on to your ears. “City Blues” is reminiscent to the core of 70’s socio-political music from artist like Marvin Gaye, expect with a modern twist. Being able to create such music successfully is a hard task that
It’s hard chilling with niggas who only talk about bitches and never ’bout business
Misogynistic till they sisters get involved
Then it’s vengeance in the name of feminism of course
Bragging bout who they piped down on highschool fool

Thutmose is back with his latest track “Wait Up” after being featured on Spider-Man: Enter The Spider-Verse soundtrack. Thutmose has created a lot of buzz in 2018 putting him on track to becoming the forefront of emerging hip hop out of New York. “Wait Up” is a standout trap vibe that shows off Thutmose’s bars and ability to harmonize. With this being his first single of 2019 I can’t wait to see what’s in store for the rest of the year.

It’s time to give Dreezy her overdue credit! Chicago-native Dreezy has been killing the game for a while now and she’s back with another bop “RIP Aretha”. This record comes off Dreezy’s forthcoming project, Big Dreez, a highly decorated, 10 track project, released on January 25. “RIP Aretha” serves as a homage to the late Aretha Franklin with a heavy hitting beat, a choppy flow, and countless of bars. As many hot artists are coming out of Chicago, Dreezy manages to hold her own and constantly remind people that her time is now.
Aye yo, I’m wilding like Lemony Snicket
I throw 4 with cause, what the world was his ticket
Topped off the Tek and I can’t even fit it
I’m smoking on loud so I probably don’t hear it
Make-Making niggas say my name when he in it
I married his Will but I’m not Jada Pinkett
