(1) Shoota - Playboi Carti ft Lil Uzi

Carti/Uzi, Kobe/Shaq, Montana/Rice, what's the difference? (@alecbruins)

 

(2) Lo Que Siento - Cuco

Cuco is a 19-year old first generation Mexican-American artist whom I stumbled across just days ago and I haven't stopped listening since. He's a musician who plays instruments, sings, raps and sings in Spanish. His versatility is the most impressive part about him. Cuco is an expert in Romantic ballads, there are so many Art Laboe vibes in this song. (@alecbruins)

 

(3) Dontmakemefallinlove - Cuco

I had to include this one from Cuco's latest project Chiquito which is less than 2 weeks old. It's a song Cuco made about a girl he doesn’t want to hurt because he thinks he’ll fuck it up but in reality he's just really in love. (@alecbruins)

 

(4) Rental - Brockhampton

This song embodies what makes Brockhampton so great. Just about every member puts their best foot forward and displays their talents. I'll have to admit it, Brockhampton may be at their best when they combine their rapping skills with their singing talent. (@abel_figgy)

 

(5) Bleach - Brockhampton

Very similar to Rental, this track is undeniably Brockhampton's best track yet. If you haven't heard Brockhampton and are looking to get into them, this is where you should go first. Amazing vocals from front to back paired with some truly emotional and insightful lyrics. This song proves why Brockhampton is the next big thing in the rap game. (@abel_figgy)

 

(6) Cold Little Heart- Michael Kiwanuka

Anyone who's seen Big Little Lies knows this one. Really dope song and I'm grateful to Big Little Lies for introducing me to it. (@abel_figgy)

 

(7) Gypsy - Fleetwood Mac

Dreams by Fleetwood Mac is just a boneless version of Gypsy by Fleetwood Mac. (@abel_figgy)

 

(8) Afro Blue - Robert Glasper ft Erykah Badu

I’m late to the party on this super smooth joint. As someone who never messes with jazz artists, I have to say Glasper sparked my interest a bunch with this. It’s an r&b/soul sound that everyone would love. (@iirenzo)

 

(9-10) Either Way &  Nobody to Blame - Chris Stapleton

These tracks are for all the folks who say they don’t like country music. Stapleton is a singer/songwriter who’s actually a once in a lifetime talent. His truly unique vocals and storytelling abilities are on full display for both records. Stapleton can bring you to unprecedented levels of musically woke. I’ll eat a shoe if anyone disagrees. (@iirenzo)

 

(11)  It's Too Late - Carole King

It’s your mom’s fave and one of the best songs of the 70s and that’s saying a lot. If you haven’t heard King’s timeless vocals and have an ear for oldies, this is right in your wheelhouse.  (@iirenzo)
