Music Review | Future, Jack Harlow, Rob49, Lil Kee, and Set Da Trend

New Music

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


Again, Elliott Wilson was right: “Future is the best rapper alive.” The high from his ninth studio album hasn’t worn off yet, and now we’re “PUFFIN ON ZOOTIEZ” or whatever the hell that means. With I NEVER LIKED YOU, Future continues to assert his dominance as the artist who has reshaped, modernized and revitalized rap – whenever he feels like it.

Jack Harlow – Churchill Downs (feat. Drake)

Jack Harlow‘s “Churchill Downs” music video is a love letter to Louisville living. From a wide-angle view of the Kentucky Derby to billets and bats, the cameo-filled visual put Jack’s introspective flow on full display. It should go without saying that the “Drake Effect” is alive and well – lyrically, he hasn’t missed a beat since his inception in music.

Rob49 & Birdman – Hustler’s Anthem V2 (feat. Kevin Gates)

Rob49 is a product of his environment, and he knows how to hustle. With “Hustler V2,” the New Orleans-bred rapper leans into a guttural drawl that accents his natural talent, recruiting fellow NOLA rep, Kevin Gates, for a hometown hero feel that’s unmatched.

Lil Kee – What You Sayin (feat. Lil Baby)

Lil Kee raps feel fearless. Today, the 4PF signee has released his new album, Letter 2 My Brother, as well as the official music video for “What You Sayin” featuring Lil Baby. His project arrives fully-formed with select appearances by Lil Durk, 42 Dugg, BIG 30, and the Four Pockets Full head honcho himself.

Set Da Trend – 2 Slimed Out (feat. FR33 Bandit)

Set Da Trend is primed to be the next big thing coming out of NY’s flourishing drill scene. With “2 Slimed Out,” the South Bronx rapper breathes tough-talk over a Cash Cobain-produced record, enlisting FR33 Bandit to help bring the song’s hard-nosed energy to life.
