Here’s this weeks’ rundown of new music from some of your favorite artists in the game.

Moneybagg Yo – Rocky Road (feat. Kodak Black)

Moneybagg Yo and Kodak Black reflect on the trials and tribulations of life in the trenches. “Rocky Road” closely follows Kodak’s standout performance across Kendrick Lamar’s double album, Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers. At their best, the duo lean on loyalty to find a common ground with listeners, marked by soul-baring bars that untangle life’s complexities. This song is an emotive expression of becoming through a street-oriented lens. 

Never Broke Again, NBA Youngboy & P Yungin – Gang Baby  (feat. Rojay MLP and RJAE) 

Never Broke Again, the brainchild of Louisiana-bred rapper NBA Youngboy, releases new single “Gang Baby” featuring P Yungin, Rojay MLP, RJAE, and the head honcho himself. The record is coupled with a music video directed by frequent collaborator Rich Porter, embodying that hard-boiled, in-your-face energy the label is known for. In classic NBA fashion, “Gang Baby” is riddled with threatening punchlines that leave no room for interpretation – and there’s nothing wrong with that. 

PaperRoute Woo – Made It Happen

PaperRoute Woo “Made It Happen” by staying true to himself. In his latest effort, the Paper Route Empire signee spotlights his upbringing through a Memphian drawl. He’s motivated by money, as evident by his all-or-nothing approach to hustling. Although this is Woo’s first release since “Fully Equipt,” his solo contribution to the Paper Route Empire Presents: Long Live Dolph compilation tape, he’s bound to have more in store as the year unfolds. 

Pink Siifu – BRAVO’! (feat. Turich Benjy, JayBee Lamahj, Swaggy Q, VonBeezy & Peso Gordon)

Pink Siifu’s music video for “BRAVO’!” feels like home. On the heels of what’s making out to be a prolific run of visuals, the GUMBO’! (DELUXE’!!) composer invited the whole crew (Turich Benjy, JayBee Lamahj, Swaggy Q, VonBeezy, and Peso Gordon) to a cookout in Cincinnati and the rest is history. The inclusion of family and friends in the video brings balance to the world Siifu created with this record.
