A bite sized showcase of our picks for this month’s most underrated tracks
ADHD Anthem (2 Many Emotions) – Rae Sremmurd
Slim Jimmi & Swae Lee showcase their impeccable teamwork on this electronic-rap track from the duo’s latest studio album “Sremm 4 Life.” The song boasts phenomenal production by Ronny G and Dynox, which compliments both artists’ vocal styles to create a totally ear-pleasing experience. A perfect pick for fans of electronic rap or cloud rap.
Runaway – Swizz Beats ft. Nas
Nasty Nas makes his mark on this track from “Hip-Hop 50: Vol.2,” a series of 10 EPs released by Nas’s Mass Appeal Records in celebration of the last 50 years of Hip-Hop history. Produced by Swizz Beats, and featuring Nas’s iconic hard hitting lyricism and delivery, this track is a standout on the project and a must list for fans of 90’s/2000’s rap.
Strike (Holster) – Lil Yachty
Staying consistent in his recent efforts to drop new and interesting sounds, Lil Yachty really hit the nail on the head with the release of this upbeat, yet easy going single from early April. Demonstrating his vocal prowess, complemented by production from “Let’s Start Here” collaborators Aaron Bow & Teddy Walton, Yachty manages to drop one of the hottest tracks of the month with ease. Plus, the song got a sweet Lyrical Lemonade video too, check it out below!
Questions – Jack Harlow
Jack is back! Serving up the relatable and introspective bars that made some of his early works so special, Harlow touches on his most intimate inquiries on this emotion filled outro from the rapper’s latest studio album, “Jackman.” A big return to his roots, Harlow even enlists the talents of Shy!, a producer from his hometown of Louisville, Kentucky to elevate the song to new heights. A really great spin for Jack Harlow fans that didn’t love “Come Home The Kids Miss You,” this entire EP feels much less commercial and much more personal.
I’m Paid – Summrs
Flexing his unique flow and complex instrumental selection, Summrs drops a non stop, no hook banger with this song from his newest studio album, “Ghost.” Stylistically, this song feels like a fusion between a Carti track and a YB track, with an emphasis on relentlessness. A perfect addition to your high energy hip-hop playlist or gym mix, this song wastes absolutely no time getting into it.
Lessons – Pierre Bourne
Another standout outro on this month’s Up Your Aux, Pierre Bourne’s “Lessons,” from his latest EP “Grails,” is 3 minutes and 10 seconds of jovial, but laid back vibes. Featuring a trance inducing flute, Pierre’s phenomenal production shines so brightly on this song, that even the lyrics take a back seat. Initially leaked back in 2018, long time fans of the artist have been waiting for an official release of this song for several years.
