1. Young Thug, 2chainz, Wiz Khalifa và PnB Rock – ‘Gang Up’

Released several months ago, ‘Gang Up’ features four of rap’s hungriest young scallywags, all fighting for space on one track. “All we gotta vì chưng is stay down & come up while they flexin”, husks Young Thug over doomy synths và boom-clap beats, before Philly MC PnB Rock adds a catchy refrain and the notoriously chill Wiz Khalifa pops up for a song-stealing verse.

3. Lil Uzi Vert, Quavo và Travis Scott – ‘Go Off’

Things get pretty fiery on this aptly-named collaboration from three of America’s hottest hip-hop prospects. It might start slowly with a delicately hummed intro from Quavo, but by Travis Scott’s final frantic chants of “I’ma go off”, the track is well and truly cookin’.

4. Migos – ‘Seize The Block’

That’s not the last we see of Quavo either.

6. PnB Rock, Kodak Black & A Boogie Wit domain authority Hoodie – ‘Horses’

I just wanna vày the dash, put my pedal to lớn the gas/Going so fast, hope I don’t crash” sings PnB Rock on this. Landing somewhere between M83’s Midnight City và Kanye’s auto-tuned masterpiece ‘Love Lockdown’, ‘Horses’ is a fawning peaen to the metallic stallions that rule Fast and Furious 8.

7. Bassnectar – ‘Speakerbox’ (Feat. Ohana Bam và Lafa Taylor)
