The Friday Rap Wrap: June 17

Pause for a moment, so that you might consider an imaginative thought conjuring up the genre of hip-hop as a particularly delicious dish. Though you’ve been stuck at work and haven’t had a chance to eat it yet, it sits by its lonesome in the fridge. And what, may I ask, is the only way to ensure the continued goodness of this scrumptious offering as it continues its lonely existence in the refrigerator? Wrap, and not just any wrap – but the RAP WRAP.

It’s like Cling Wrap, but more specific and interesting, featuring names such as Juicy J, Rick Ross, Towkio, Your Old Droog and FAT TREL, amongst others. Enjoy your dish, ladies and gentleman. Eat well and be merry.

Juicy J, No English (ft. Travi$ Scott)

Juicy J and the hot hand of Travi$ Scott collide for this club-friendly banger, with TM88 handling the production for this latest single sure to grab plenty of attention, and shake a great many speakers in months (years?) to come. Coming perfectly in time for the beginning of the weekend, this is one track to add to any party’s playlist.

Rick Ross, Same Hoes

Rick Ross drops a hip-hop ode *ruggh* to sharing the same women as fellow celebrities and rich men *ruugh*, such as Chris Brown, Justin Bieber, Snoop Dogg and Pusha T, amongst so many *ruugh* others. Overshadowed by the bass *ruugh* somewhat, the beat alone makes the song worth *ruugh* listening to, if the enjoyment of judging the MMG label boss *ruugh* isn’t joy enough.

Towkio, Playin Fair (ft. Joey Purp)

Preparing a new EP for release next week, as well as working on upcoming album World Wide .Wav with mastermind producer Rick Rubin, SAVEMONEY affiliate Towkio combines with fellow crew member Joey Purp for Playin’ Fair, a hyped anthem track showcasing the musical abilities of both young men. Taken from the upcoming EP release, Towkio further shows himself as one to watch for the future.

Your Old Droog, White Rappers

Working on a new album, titled PACKS, for release later this year, Your Old Droog drops a smooth offering sure to appeal to fans of ‘classic’ hip-hops. Perhaps most particularly, Your Old Droog will perpetually appeal to all Nas fans considering how uncannily their voices sound similar. Nonetheless, Your Old Droog remains one of the freshest talents to emerge in recent years, and White Rappers is a sincerely enjoyable track to affirm that fact.

Blended Babies, Charlene (ft. Ricky Hil & FAT TREL)

Dropping their latest EP, 6, on Soundcloud today, Blended Babies conjure up this solid, listenable track featuring dual talents FAT TREL and Ricky Hil, aka the son of renowned fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger. The perfect track with which to end the day (whilst possibly utilising a certain green substance of questionable legality, perhaps), Charlene is a great way to end the week.
