It was a good week for new music.
It was quite an eventful and fruitful week on the music side of things. Future dominated with a quick succession of headlines, beginning with an album announcement, a tracklist (#nofeatures), an early album leak thanks to our international friends, and then finally, his proper album release worldwide. Unfortunately none of those FUTURE cuts are available on Soundcloud (save for their subscription service), so we had to look elsewhere for our favorite tracks of the week-- and there was plenty go around there, too.
NAV made a splash thanks to a Weeknd feature on his single "Some Way" (also followed by an album announcement), and we received some anticipated heat from Kodak Black. Not only that, but CyHi The Prynce dropped what is surely an underrated record, as did Joey Bada$$, and we received some Valentine's Day-appropriate records from BJ The Chicago Kid, Thundercat and more.
Check out our staff's picks from the last seven days, and enjoy the playlist.
