The playlist game is strong. Once again, we're back with another update for our latest endeavor, HotNewHipHop: Tidal Wave. In case you missed it, we recently teamed up with Tidal to highlight a blend of our favorite recent tracks, with updates coming every week.

While last week found many revisiting 21 Savage's I Am > I Was, this time found a few old favorites getting the double-down treatment. EarthGang's "Proud Of U" and Lil West's "Someday" stuck around for another go, while new music from Royce Da 5'9", Nate Husser, Amine, Khalid, Buddy, KXNG Crooked and more stand among the new favorites. Should you like what you hear, be sure you hit that heart icon for your convenience. 

In the meantime, get to know some of the team's personal preferences, whether you love us, hate us, or begrudgingly respect us. Whatever your preference, we're here to help. If you ain't on TIDAL, fix that A$AP here.
