It was a great week for new music, including full-length releases from Young Thug and Gunna's label Young Stoner Life, Griselda affiliate Conway The Machine, Atlanta rapper Kenny Mason, 1017 representative Big Scarr, and more. We're expecting some exciting rushes for the rest of the year, with so many artists slated to drop new music before the summer officially begins.

Every week, our staff mulls over the latest hip-hop and R&B releases to curate our weekly updated Staff Picks Playlist, which is exclusive to TIDAL and SoundCloud. While some weeks have passed without much action in the rap world, this week we got lucky with some huge releases, including Slime Language 2 and La Maquina, which dominate the playlist this week.

Our editorial and sales staff enjoyed new music from Young Stoner Life (with features from Drake, Lil Baby, Rowdy Rebel, Skepta, and more), Conway The Machine (with four songs on the playlist), Kenny Mason (who also clocked four tracks on the playlist!), and more. From the singles released last week, we're highlighting tracks from Tee Grizzley, IDK, Bino Rideaux, and others.

We're also showing love to the recently-departed DMX and Black Rob by including two of their respective songs. Rest in peace, DMX and Black Rob.

Check out what each HNHH staff member picked for the playlist this week and let us know whose selections are your favorite. Subscribe to our page on SoundCloud here for more playlists, as well as TIDAL here.
