Hopefully, you've been having a good month to kick off 2019 so far; hip-hop surely has. Things are just getting started, but theres a lot of quality hip-hop releases out there already. This week will carry more of that momentum. A ton of songs will go live this time around, but we got you. Enjoy XXL's song roundup right here.

J. Cole has plenty of attention around him as of recently, thanks to the Revenge of the Dreamers III recording sessions. Riding on that buzz right into a new song, Cole let loose "Middle Child" on Wednesday. On the track, the Dreamville head honcho raps about his relationship with Drake, rap beef and much more. Some attentive fans even think he's sending a few barbs at a certain rap superstar. You be the judge.

Tyga is on a crazy run right now; he might have another big song on his hands too. His new single is "Girls Have Fun," which plants him alongside two hitmakers: G-Eazy and Rich The Kid. To put it simply, the song goes and fits in perfectly with Tyga's other recent tunes. G-Eazy, Rich and Tyga all work off each other's energy well; all three of them excel at rapping about enjoying themselves.

Soulja Boy is having a rather eventful press run. Dropping some new music while you dominate social media and radio isn't a bad idea at all. Big Soulja's new song is "In My Pocket" featuring Asian Doll and A$AP Ferg. The song is about having too much cash to stuff in your jeans and well, all three artists are definitely getting to it. This is a fitting track for Soulja Boy's recent surge in popularity and the features are perfect for the song's purpose.
