Kehlani finally dropped the “While You Wait” mixtape last week and I’ve had it on heavy rotation. It was hard to choose my favourite as I was stuck between two songs for two days! Finally, I chose the song featuring 6lack because it’s amazing and I love to hear 6lack collaborations because they’re always on point.
Eric Bellinger has just dropped the sequel to The Rebirth and it’s double album of 32 songs. One of the songs that sticks out is his collaboration with Nipsey Hussle, who has really grown on me as a rapper in the last year due to his critically acclaimed album “Victory Lap”. Like Kehlani and 6lack, this pairing is easy to love and I look forward to more collaborations from them in the future.
My last pick is very special tone as it’s one of my favourite songs on The Root’s “Things Fall Apart” album, which turned 20 years old last week. Hip hop is one of my first loves and of course, the song I have chosen speaks to that. If you love “Things Fall Apart”, I’m sure you know which song I’m referring to without swiping or reading further down.
“RPG” by Kehlani feat. 6lack,
“That’s Why” by Eric Bellinger feat. Nipsey Hussle,
“Act Too (The Love Of My Life)” by The Roots feat. Common.
