Best Songs of the Week Featuring Future, Kodak Black and More
XXL has compiled another batch of the week's best tracks for your listening pleasure. This week’s selections are comprised of some standout records from new LPs and a few previews of soon-to-be released albums.
Kicking things off is Kodak Black’s much hyped single “Tunnel Vision.” The Metro Boomin-produced track finally dropped this week, and it came with a politically-charged video. Kodak took aim at the KKK and Donald Trump supporters in a visual that is powerful to say the least.
Future jumped back to the top of the hip-hop conversation with the release of his new self-titled album. The Atlanta rapper supplied fans with a bunch of new bangers, but the opening cut “Rent Money” stood out most for our best of the week picks.
Raekwon gave listeners another taste of his upcoming solo album The Wild via his new single “Purple Brick Road” featuring G-Eazy. The Wu-Tang legend delivered some vintage rhymes on the smooth production, which was crafted by the J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League.
Joey Bada$$ got everyone in the right mood for the 2017 NBA All-Star Game with his new track “Victory.” The record is filled with copious amounts of basketball references that make it a perfect anthem for this weekend’s festivities.
Last but not least is Starlito, who dropped a surprise album titled Manifest Destiny. The LP originally came with a hefty price tag, but fans could get it for a more reasonable amount on digital outlets like iTunes. Lito’s latest creation has plenty of dope records, but the Mista Cain-assisted “Streets Want That” is a prime example of why the Nashville MC has such a loyal following.
