Houston rapper TisaKorean first broke out in 2018 when his songs "Werkkkkkkk" and "Dip" became the de facto soundtrack to tens of thousands of dancing videos featuring The Woah. His latest full-length includes the song "WiFi Password," a great place to start to get a sense of Tisakorean's unique wit.

Your Old Droog, Dump Yod: Krutoy Edition
6 albums you should stream right now

"Pravda," a song from New York City rapper Your Old Droog's new album Dump Yod: Krutoy Edition, was a highlight of my week when it dropped. Mach-Hommy, El-P, Black Thought, and Tha God Fahim all joined forces with Droog for a massive celebration of traditional lyrical craftsmanship without the attendant stuffiness. Dump has 11 more tracks of relentless iron-coated bars, plus two additional Mach-Hommy features and a verse from Phonte of Little Brother.

Winston C.W., Good Guess

From our premiere of the project on Tuesday, Alex Robert Ross writes: "These are ballads that sometimes recall the Windham Hill catalog, other times American popular standards that are almost a century old. It’s hardly built from references that recur on, say, this website. But it is increasingly clear that Cook-Wilson is wrapping these old threads around something genuinely idiosyncratic."
