Before we move onto this next week's state of affairs, which will bring us new full-length projects from the Migos and Polo G, we're enjoying last week's new music, which included fresh releases from Lil Durk & Lil Baby, radio legend Peter Rosenberg, Lloyd Banks, and more.

Every kind of hip-hop fan got to enjoy last week's slate of new music. If you've been listening to rap for most of your life, lyrical kingpin Lloyd Banks came through with a fiery new album after many years of inactivity. Peter Rosenberg also gathered up some of the East Coast's best talents for his first official foray into A&Ring. If you're more of a new school hip-hop lover, Lil Durk and Lil Baby had the mainstream locked down this week. BROCKHAMPTON also added some more new music onto their recent ROADRUNNER release. Of course, we're also showing love to the R&B crowd with this week's edition of the Staff Picks Playlist, tacking on some Foushée, Q, Mustafa, and more.

This playlist is updated every Monday with our staff's favorite new songs of the last few weeks. For last week's playlist, click here. Follow us on SoundCloud and TIDAL to be sure to hear the fresh picks, and follow us on Spotify here for our R&B Season and Fire Emoji playlists.
