5 US tunes you NEED on repeat right now #GRMFreshestOut

15 March 2015

Welcome back to #GRMFreshestOut, the one-stop place for the hottest tunes of the week. On this week’s edition of the US segment, we’ve got 5 more absolute bangers for you to digest. Check in and check out #GRMFreshestOut.

Lupe Fiasco ft. Nikki Jean – Madonna (And Other Mothers In The Hood)

One of the standouts from Lupe’s madly underrated ‘Tetsuo And Youth’ album has got the visual treatment. It’s powerful stuff, with the narrative of the video matching the song. It details the story of a young man who’s mother has unfortunately developed a heroin problem, creating a really deep tale.

Freddie Gibbs – Pronto

In keeping with recent trends, Gangsta Gibbs has taken it upon himself to release a surprise project with no prior announcement. Don’t get too excited, as it’s only 3 tracks long. However, the songs still bang – check out the EP’s opener and titular track “Pronto”.

iSHi x Pusha T – Push It!

Producer iSHi, who you may remember as being the beat maker behind Tinie Tempah’s hit “Written In The Stars”, as well as for producing for other UK MC’s like Wretch 32, has just dropped off his new video. Over a steamroller of a beat, Pusha T delivers verses up to scratch with all his work, creating a top class record.

Snoop Dogg ft. Pharrell & Charlie Wilson – Peaches N Cream

Snoop Dogg recently announced his next LP ‘BUSH’, which is to be produced entirely by Pharrell Williams. Judging from this first offering, that was a great executive decision to make, as Snoop’s breezy flow floats all over the funky production. This is that perfect summer cook out music.

Wiz Khalifa x Ty Dolla $ign – Post Up

Taylor Gang bredrins Wiz Khalifa and Ty$ are set to drop a joint EP together, tentatively titled ‘Talk About It In The Morning’. If you don’t want to wait until then, you can listen to the projects first single tonight. It’s produced by Ty$ himself and is the typically bouncy and spacey track we’ve come to expect from this pair.
