Best Songs of the Week: Gunplay, Slaughterhouse and YG
It’s been a long seven days and the pressures of the week may have worn on your soul. But today is Friday, and you know what that means: a new edition of Songs of the Week. Last week, Papoose and Emilio Rojas made the list along with Chevy Woods taking home top honors with his effort, "All Said And Done,” which has gotten its fair share of spins and has become a fan favorite around The Boombox office.
Music releases may have been light at the start of last week with all of the award shows and festivities taking place, but this week has been the polar opposite. Everyone from Fetty Wap to Future have been liberating new tracks for the public and continuing the barrage of great music being released in 2015.
After mulling through the possible picks throughout the past few days, the elimination game may have been a headache, but we managed to narrow it down to three winners. Here are your Songs of the Week featuring Gunplay, Slaughterhouse and YG. Enjoy.
Ever since stealing the show on Kendrick Lamar's "Cartoons & Cereal," Gunplay has kept fans clamoring for an album from the MMG wildcard. Well, the wait is over as Gunplay's Living Legend album touches down on July 31. Only weeks away from the moment of truth, Don Logan drops a new heater, titled "Be Like Me" featuring the boss Rick Ross that is sure to amp up anticipation even more.
The most lyrical quartet in the world is back at it with their latest release, "R.N.S." Included on the Southpaw soundtrack, this number sees the Shady super-group catching wreck over a rollicking soundbed.
2014 may have been a dismal year for music, but one bright spot was Compton rep YG's debut album, My Krazy Life. After spending the first half of 2015 making waves for activities outside of his music, YG is back with a new single, titled "Twist My Fingaz." Produced by Terrace Martin, the track is the first release off of his forthcoming sophomore record, Still Krazy, which is slated to drop sooner than later.
