HNHH's weekly round-up of our favorite SoundCloud tracks of the week.
Much of this week was spent digesting Drake's new "playlist," More Life, which many fans are ranking right up there with his best albums. All the talk centered around the globetrotting Canadian until last night, when Kendrick Lamar sneakily delivered a vicious new call to arms with "The Heart Part 4." There may be some shots for Drake in there -- and perhaps some aimed at Big Sean, but regardless, the whole rap game better prepare for whatever he's planning to drop on April the 7th.
Kendrick also made an appearance on the biggest project that came out last night, Mike Will Made-It's Ransom 2. The superproducer enlisted the unforeseen combination of K-Dot, Rae Sremmurd, and Gucci Mane for "Perfect Pint," a haunting ode to the drank that is much in the vein of Kendrick's own "Swimming Pools." Aside from that, today's Staff Picks mix provides a rundown of what happened while you had "Free Smoke" and "Blem" on repeat. It turns out Drake isn't the only one who can cook up an eclectic playlist for your head top.
Shout-out to Ca$h Out for gracing the cover photo and for his new Different mixtape. The title track kicks off our new playlist.
