This is the calm before the storm. Q4 is upon us, and while we wait for gargantuan releases from Nicki Minaj, Lil’ Wayne, PRhyme and Rick Ross, other artists are quietly dropping stellar singles, from Philly’s Asaad to Louisiana’s Kevin Gates. It’s like that period when you’d get home from school and play as many video games as you could before your parents got home.
This week, Earl Sweatshirt dropped a mystery verse out of the blue, Azealia Banks surprised everybody, and a couple other under-the-radar artists showed the world their capabilities. Spin ’em over the weekend and let us know if we missed any of your favorite new songs.
