Best Songs of the Week: Run the Jewels, Rich the Kid and Bow Wow
Fall has arrived and the short-sleeve shirts have been exchanged for hoodies and crewneck sweaters. The warm weather has all but vanished, but the one thing that will always remain the same is the onslaught of new music that hits the internet on a daily basis. Here at The Boombox, we take pride in delivering the hottest songs by your favorite artists.
Last week featured selections from Grafh, Freddie Gibbs and Gucci Mane that piqued our interest and received a considerable amount of burn around the office. This week's standouts are delivering hot tracks as well.
So check out the songs and tell us what you think of them in the comments below.
Killer Mike and El-P continue to produce high quality rap music with their newest tune, "Rubble Kings Theme (Dynamite)." Released in support of the Rubble Kings documentary, the song falls in line with the duo tried-and-true brand of hardcore and see the two veteran MCs doing damage over the ominous, industrial-sounding track. Bars like, "Surrounded by violence and murder / Say we in the street and we gripping on heat, you got beef and we're frying your burger" will leave you with a screw-face and your head bobbing along as they go on their lyrical warpath.
Bow Wow has been making a considerable amount of noise as of late with a few high profile moves that prove that he's still spry enough to pull off a few new tricks. In addition to landing a role on the new crime drama, CSI: Cyber, Bow Wow also defected from Cash Money Records and has aligned himself with Diddy and Bad Boy Records. Looking to reclaim his top billing as an artist, Bow Wow makes a hell of an impression with his new buzzworthy tune called "Too Real." The song features the 28-year-old rhymer rapping about juggling multiple women and flossing. Some fans may have counted him out long ago, but Bow Wow sounds more than ready for his resurgence and "Too Real" is a hell of a warning shot that hits the mark.
PARTYNEXTDOOR has been making moves in the R&B game. After releasing a bevy of exclusive songs on the OVO Sound Radio show, the R&B crooner is back with a new track called "Routine Rogue." The song features Rich the Kid, who leaked the unreleased tune on Twitter, and Ty Dolla $ign. On the song, the three artists kick game while in hot pursuit of some late-night loving. Produced by PND and boasts enticing melodies, "Routine Rogue" is great mood music to set the weeknd (see what we did there?) off correctly.
