5 Hip-Hop Songs You Might Have Missed This Week

Another week of great music has gone by, and so, I show you the 5 best rap songs you might have missed for a number of reasons. As always, I'm including the best songs from indie rappers, popular rappers, and everything in between. With that being said, let's go:

5. Jarren Benton - Anarchy (feat. EarthGang)

I really like Jarren Benton. A dirty spitter from Atlanta, he's known for his hilarious punchlines and heavy beats. In this one, Jarren uses a trap beat and a violent music video to get his message across: "It's anarchy out here. We don't trust the police." The beat is loud, his flow is unique, the hook is catchy, and EarthGang drops a nice verse. A lot of Benton fans seem to be disappointed with this one, but I think it's dope!

4. SKNY - Intro/Welcome Home

I'll be honest with you, I don't know much about SKNY. I heard a snippet for this song a couple of months ago on Twitter and immediately got interested in him. Well, the song is finally out...and it's fire! The classy, yet bouncy instrumental (love the piano melody), the charisma and flow SKINY brings to the table, and the conceptual video. Excited to hear more from this cat.

3. 2 Chainz - Bounce (feat. Lil Wayne)

I love the chemistry these guys have. Definitely better than Drake and Future. Bounce has Tity Boi and Weezy engaging in a rap battle. Surprisingly, it's pretty good! Lil Wayne proves once again that he can still bring it when he wants to. And 2 Chainz actually goes hard, dropping some clever and funny lines. You have to love it!

2. Sylvan Lacue - Heavenly

Far From Familiar is coming, and I can't wait. When analyzing all his recent song releases, Sylvan is showing how much he has evolved, and how versatile he is. With Heavenly, he provides some interesting food for thought. Lyrically, Sylvan does his thing. He talks about his career, the rap game and more. His flow is off the charts, and the vocals he uses to deliver the hook are indeed, heavenly.

1. Hopsin - ILL Mind of Hopsin 8

Hopsin has two sides: the lyrical, dope rapper, and the corny, comedic act. Luckily, he brings the first side in this one. Big time. ILL Mind of Hopsin is a diss song towards Damien Ritter, owner of Funk Volume. Hop doesn't hold back, spitting some pretty personal and offensive lines. The beat bumps in the whip, and Hopsin delivers solid verses with a priceless flow. Didn't love the hook, but at the end of the day you can't deny it: this is one of the best songs Hopsin has ever made.

Disclaimer: If you're reading this in the future, some of the YouTube links might be broken. I still recommend you to go and check the songs out. I'M GIVING YOU GREAT MUSIC!
