With summer coming to a close, Rick Ross keeps the season alive with a new heater titled “No U-Turns.”

Nipsey Hussle has found a collaborative groove with eclectic Atlanta rapper Young Thug, and it shows on his new track “I Do This,” also featuring Mozzy.

Chris Brown returns with a remix of his trap-inspired Royalty single on “Wrist,” featuring Young Thug and Jeezy.

Surprise, surprise. Royce Da 5’9” is streaming his new album, Layers, guilt-free before it releases on Friday (April 15).

Here it is, the moment we’ve (read: this writer) been waiting for. Readying his Layers album for an April 15 release, Royce Da 5’9 premieres the title track, featuring rap heavyweights Pusha T and Rick Ross.

2015 continues to be a fruitful year for rap music, free releases included. Tonight, French Montana and Fetty Wap will add their collaborative project, Coke Zoo, into the mix, from which we receive an early listen of the Diddy-assisted intro “First Time.”

While 2015 promises a bunch of prominent rap releases, there’s also a list of newcomers to look out for. Three of our favorites–Wara From The NBHD, Tunji Ige, and GrandeMarshall–connect on a new track called “Moving.”

Of the newcomers that have piqued our interests, fewer than a handful delivered a story as captivating as the one heard on Wara From The NBHD’s new album, Kidnapped.

Yesterday, Wara From the NBHD was slated to release his Kidnapped mixtape, but after a change of plans, the body of work doesn’t release until August 12. Fortunately for fans, the up and comer compensated for the delay by delivering a new cut called “Raw,” featuring Fool’s Gold rapper GrandeMarshall. 

GrandeMarshall returns representing Fool’s Gold and Philly’s bubbling Hip-Hop scene on his new track, “Girls [Still Got] Rhythm,” from his upcoming LP My Brother’s Keeper.

Following the release of “Red Light, Green Light” and the overall success of the “Day of the Dead” music series, Flatbush Zombies are set to invade their native Brooklyn during an upcoming Converse Rubber Tracks Live show.
