The 10 best new rap songs right now
Pop Smoke f. A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie

A lot of Pop Smoke's songs sound alike. But a lot of Pop Smoke songs are still fire.

Nicki Minaj, "Yikes"

If this is what a new Nicki album is gonna sound like, I need it.

Young Don & 39Baby Steph, "Iron Slanging"

Two of Baltimore's hottest teen rappers apply some substantial pressure on this one. Young Don is especially promising.

Chief Keef, "Lamb Pass By"

Gucci Mane dropped "Vette Pass By" almost 15 years ago. Keef dropped "Lamb Pass By" five days ago. Gucci's birthday was yesterday. Coincidence? I think not.

Olamide f. Sosa E and Jackmillz, "Dance With The Devil"

A standout from the Nigerian superstar rapper's newest project, 999.

Azealia Banks, "Nirvana"

In terms of pure talent and skill, there still aren't too many fucking with Azealia. She proves that on this new bilingual banger.

Lil Xelly, "2Late"

Maryland's Lil Xelly makes delightfully expansive rap.

Jucee Froot f. Rico Nasty, "Psycho (Remix)"

Memphis rapper Jucee Froot hit it big adopting the Detroit sound with last year's "Psycho" and now it's hit another level by pulling in Rico Nasty for its remix.

Bakersteez, "YChop"

Jamaica's Bakersteez rarely disappoints with his take on rap.

Lil Wayne, "Mama Mia"
