First and foremost, I want to thank everyone that visited Potholes this past week, especially when we posted our report card of the BET Hip-Hop Awards cyphers. We had our best single day of traffic ever and we obviously couldn’t do that without y’all. So, thank you again and again <3. Other than that, the biggest stories included Danny Brown and Pusha T’s first-week sales numbers, Flume’s rap mixtape announcement, and Dam-Funk and Snoop Dogg revealing more information about their joint album. We also got to hear new albums from Don Trip and Starlito, L’Orange and Stik Figa, and Ryan Hemsworth. We also released a stunning new EP from the multi-talented Abigail Press.
In terms of some of the weird shit that happened, did you see that clip of Kid Cudi shoving a dude off his stage? How about the two-part Back & Forth interview between A$AP Rocky and Kathy Griffin? Speaking of Rocky, he’s skirting charges of assault that stem from his Made In America performance. Oh, and A Tribe Called Quest are apparently playing their final two shows during the Yeezus tour. Sigh.
Here are the best songs that dropped this past week:
- Blu & Nottz – “Crooks In Castles” F. ANTHM, Homeboy Sandman, Sene & Johaz
- Madlib – “Black Widow”
- MellowHigh – “Extinguisher”
- Lee Bannon – “Bound 3” (Kanye West Rework)
- Mike Skinner – “Know There’s No”
