Considering the amount of music that flooded DSP’s last month, a chill start to the month of July is somewhat of a needed and timely breather from the hectic New Music Friday release circuit.
Nevertheless, HipHopDX has prepared a solid menu for music lovers to indulge in, featuring dynamic pairings such as IDK and Young Thug along with BeatKing, 2Chainz and Juicy J. Additional highlighted dishes included releases from Logic, Russ, GASHI, $not and more
Peep the full list of singles releases from Friday (July 2), below.
IDK f. Young Thug – “PradadaBang”
With his No Label Academy Harvard music business course set to school 10 lucky pupils in the art of making it in the music industry without a record deal in August, IDK continues to set the example for success with his productive 2021 run. Following his recent “Peleton” single, IDK delivers his USEE4YOURSELF album single “PradadaBang” with the help of a saucy Young Thug guest verse.
Logic – “Vaccines”
Fully embracing his return to rap after staging an early retirement last year, Logic is thriving in this new chapter of his career — and building new relationships such as his bond with veteran producer Madlib. For his follow-up release, Bobby Tarantino takes down the COVID-19 pandemic on his own terms with his lyrical antibody building “Vaccines” record.
Toosii – “Heart Cold”
HipHopDX Rising Star Toosii clearly has no patience for love, or Popeye’s chicken sandwich, which he believes was the cause of the devastating global COVID-19 pandemic. In a moody and very on-brand move, the Thank You For Believing rapper sounds off on his indifferent “Heart Cold” vibe.
Russ – “On The Way”
Russ has been moving at light speed since the beginning of the year after linking with 2020 HipHopDX Rapper Of The Year Lil Baby on their spicy “Ugly” collaboration in January. And even though he is knee-deep in his efforts petitioning for the freedom of non-violent cannabis offenders, Russ continues to find his groove and keeps pace on his “On The Way” offering.
BeatKing f. 2 Chainz & Juicy J – “SDAB”
Multi-hyphenate Houston-bred producer BeatKing already sprung into action back in April with the assistance of Ludacris on their x-rated “Keep It Popping” collab. Now with the help of 2 Chainz and Juicy J, BeatKing aims to blow the roof off the club once again with their “SDAB” anthem.
Cassius Jay f. Tory Lanez, Trouble – “Fish Scale”
Last but not least, Atlanta-based superproducer Cassius Jay continues on his 2021 trail of production demolition following his work on Peewee Longway’s Longway Sinatra 2 album with his own solo release. Joining forces with Tory Lanez and Trouble, BeatKing goes up yet again on his heavyweight “Fish Scale” trap-ready banger.
Multiple bangers have also landed on this week’s list of Honorable Mentions including Ty Dolla $ign’s massive R&B collaboration with DVSN that also features a posthumous verse from Mac Miller and Brent Faiyaz and Drake’s Pharrell-produced bombshell. There’s also new music from Gashi, Lil Kari, C.J. Green and Futuristic and more.
