This week has proved to be pretty eventful when it comes to song releases. There was actually a lot to choose from when it came time to compile our weekly Staff Picks playlist, and we're expecting the commenters to call us out on any and all oversights. There were Drake leaks. There was a Weeknd remix of Bryson Tiller. There was a G-Eazy remix. There was a 50 Cent remix. There was a Lil Wayne remix. There was a Wavy Wednesday cut. There was a Lupe Fiasco freestyle. That's just the tip of the iceberg. Nonetheless, we kept our playlist succinct, at eight records, highlighting a mix of what dropped this week. 

Nipsey Hussle and YG got to politickin' on the no-holds-barred "FDT," which leads way for two returns: Sir Michael Rocks and Mick Jenkins. From there, things slow down momentarily with The Weeknd's take on Bryson Tiller's "Rambo" and BeatKing's chopped & screwed "Red Lean Freestyle" before ending with a touch of soul, thanks to music from The Alchemist and Street Runner.
