Kanye West feat. Lil Pump – “I Love It”
Kanye West is back with new music. After releasing his solo album Ye, Kids See Ghosts with Kid Cudi, and producing a few more projects for Nas, Teyana Taylor, and Pusha T this year, Yeezy unleashes even more new material.
The G.O.O.D. Music boss debuted his newest track “I Love It” and its video at the PornHub Awards, which West reportedly worked on as the creative director. The new track features Lil Pump, who raps: “You’re such a fucking ho, I love it.”
West and Pump don oversized outfits in the Spike Jonze-directed visual. Meanwhile, Yeezy raps about sex on the track. “I’m sick fuck, I like to quick fuck,” he rhymes. “I like my dick sucked / I’ll buy you a sick truck / I’ll buy you some new kicks / I’ll get you that nip tuck.”

Russ — Zoo
Russ returns. The buzzing Atlanta rapper delivers his latest effort in the form of Zoo. The 14-song follow-up to 2017’s There’s Really a Wolf arrives with some introspective raps and famous guest appearances.
Snoop Dogg and Rick Ross pop up on “Last Forever.” Meanwhile, Mahalia delivers assistance on “Keep It Pushin.” Scott Storch also provides production on the opening cut, “The Flute Song.” Nevertheless, Russ handles a bulk of the rhymes and production.
As usual, Russ opens up about his life in the rhymes. “They’re trying to kill me / Can you blame me for the thoughts I’ve had lately?” he asks on “Voicemail.” “I know it sounds crazy, that’s why I call lately / Please don’t betray me / God, can you save me?”
He also talks about his strained relationship with his father. “Dad on meds, doctors say he’s bipolar,” he raps on “Begging You.” “I’m scared that I’ma turn out like that when I’m older.” The song’s chorus adds: “Take all my pain away.”

Joey Purp — Quarterthing
Joey Purp pops back up with Quarterthing. The Chicago rapper delivers a 14-song project full of hard-hitting beats, soulful vibes, and more.
Purp benefits from some high-powered collaborators. This includes a 1-2 Wu-Tang Clan punch, as RZA appears on “Godbody Pt. 2” and GZA shows up on “In the Morning.” Raven Lenae, Jabari Rayford, Cdot Honcho, and Queen Key also earn guest appearances.
Joey also gets some assistance on the production side. Kevin Rhomberg, Peter Wilkins, Nate Fox, Nico Segal, and more lend their beat chops, while Purp supplies some of his own production.
Joseph also uses the body of work to deliver a message about his mission. “I speak the truest, they misconstrue it, we incongruent,” he raps on “Godbody Pt. 2.” “I need a moment, I need atonement, this more than music.” Later, he adds: “If they break me, I’ll crack and crumble into Jesus pieces.”
Logic — “Everybody Dies”
Shortly after announcing Young Sinatra IV, Logic drops yet another single in “Everybody Dies.” Produced by 6ix and Cubeatz, the new track is also Bobby Tarantino’s message-driven track about versatility and futility.
“I do it for the boom bap, the trap, and the radio,” he raps. “Fuck a fake fan, steppin’ to me, tryin’ to play me, ho / I make music for every genre, every occasion / My shit is amazin’, I’m blazin’, it’s insane.”
Later, he gets existential. “We all ‘gon die one day, God already got the date set,” he explains. “So live your life, live your life, yeah you live it, that’s a bet/ Because if you don’t live it in the end, you gon’ be filled with regret.”

T.I. — “Jefe” & “Wraith”
T.I. doubles up. The King of the South gets back to the music with the release of two new tracks features some famous faces and big name producers.
The first of those new releases is the Meek Mill-assisted “Jefe.” Boasting inspiration from Pablo Escobar, the guys flex their bilingual lingo over Bangladesh’s booming production.
“Flex on the ‘Gram just to look like you got it, but really you broke,” raps Mill. “Seen suckers pop shit on they Twitter like killers and really get smoked.” Later on, Tip brags about his longevity and future: “That’s how I do it, can’t give you the formula / Don’t stop me now, I’m just warming up.”
Next up is the Yo Gotti-assisted “Wraith.” Scott Storch lends his production to the track, while T.I.P. raps about his legacy. “No weapon against me shall prosper, but it’s welcomed to form,” he raps. “Knew from the day I was born, I’d perform in the Forum / Ringing bells and blowing horns when my name’s called / I’m just a self-made nigga in the Wraith, dog.”
