Hip Hop's 49-Song Weekend: New Dr. Dre, Drake, Chance, A$AP Rocky & More

Perfect Memorial Day break? Or the kind where you come into work dying 'cause of how short it felt? Either way, here's the follow-up you deserve—including two brand new albums

1 / 15

Dr. Dre feat. Kendrick Lamar and Jeremih, "2Nite"

Update: This one keeps getting pulled; if it's gone again, listen here!

New. Dr. Dre. Featuring. Kendrick. Lamar. (With. Jeremih. On Hook.) We don't need to tell you how fast to press play, or how big a deal this is.

Also, if you had your money on both 2015 Drake and 2015 Dre repurposing Erykah Badu's immortal hook from the Roots' classic cut "You Got Me," you just won the whole pot. Below are the original and the If You're Reading This It's Too Late cut, "6 Man," that has Drizzy singing those "baby don't worry you know that you got me" lines.

Drake, "Go Out Tonight"

No idea when this newly leaked song was made, but it sounds like it could be one from the vault. Then again, we have no idea what Views from the 6 will sound like as a whole—or even on a track-by-track basis, since we've only heard a semi-finished Beyoncé collaboration called "Can I."

Anyway. Hot track. Could be cousins with "Karaoke" from Thank Me Later or anything from Take Care.

A$AP Rocky, 'At.Long.Last.A$AP.' [Full Album]

Surprise! A$AP Rocky shared his entire new album—on Spotify, on iTunes, in stores—late Monday night, a week early.

4 / 15

Drake feat. Tinashe, "On a Wave"

Drizzy's goin' way, way, way out...into the ocean on this flowy new one with Tinashe. Relatedly: Drake is not finished making songs about having a hard time connecting with women. Relatedly related: Tinashe is still fly as hell.

5 / 15

Future feat. Rick Ross & Big Sean, "Fuck Up Some Commas (Remix)"

Future's killer Monster mixtape cut turned single is secretly winning the summer before the summer starts. So why not get Big Sean and Ricky Ross on there? Highlight: Sean Don promises to build his empire till it can compete with Fox's smash show Empire.

Plus, this DJ Spinz and Southside beat will still be hot in five years.

6 / 15

Juicy J feat. Drake & Ty Dolla Sign, "Tryna Fuck"

Surprisingly tender for a track called "Tryna Fuck," this Juicy J jam is a straight love song. With Drake. Who already saw two songs drop/leak over the weekend. Drake featuring Drake featuring Drake.

7 / 15

Run the Jewels, "Pew Pew Pew"

You're not surprised that the band whose logo is a fist and a finger in gun position would have a song named after the sound a silenced gun makes, are you? Good. Now watch Killer Mike and El-P perform this unreleased Run the Jewels cut in Mike's Atlanta barber shop.

8 / 15

Chance the Rapper, "Hiatus"

Here's a minute and 18 seconds of new Chance the Rapper, dubbed, on Twitter, as "Another broadcast from my home studio." Not really enough to tide you over till the Chance and the Social Experiment's Surf record hits, but, as always with Chance, it's beautiful. Stereogum notes that the sample is by a band named Hiatus Kaiyote (“Fingerprints”), hence the title. 

Chance "was also sneaky with how he uploaded it," says Stereogum, "dropping it into an already established Soundcloud that had 5 million plays." Artists are still finding new ways to surprise us on the daily, release-wise, and we're super here for it.

9 / 15

Eminem, "Phenomenal" [Preview]

Hit the 50-second mark in this Draymond Green #sports commercial to hear some new Em from the soundtrack to Southpaw, the Jake Gyllenhaal boxing movie that was originally set to star Marshall Mathers himself. Slim Shady's actually releasing an album in tandem with the July film, Southpaw (Music from and Inspired by the Motion Picture). Manager Paul Rosenberg explains:

“We have been involved in developing Southpaw since its inception, and Eminem has dedicated himself to ensuring that this film captured his passion for the project through his music. We've assembled a great soundtrack to accompany what's sure to be one of the finest boxing films ever.”

See the trailer, also soundtrack to some of Eminem's "Phenomenal," below.

Boosie Badazz, 'Touch Down 2 Cause Hell' [Full Album]

On Friday, Boosie BadAzz—the artist formerly known as Lil Boosie—dropped "Mercy on My Soul," featuring the also-grown-up Jeezy, née Young Jeezy—on Friday. Now the whole album's here, and it's got features from Rick RossT.I., Young Thug, and J. Cole and Keyshia Cole on the same damn song.

11 / 15

The Weeknd, "I Can't Feel My Face"

Update (7/28): Video's here! Watch it above.

Drake wasn't the only member of the October's Very Own squad to see multiple tracks, plural, hit the internet over the Memorial Day stretch. Three new Weeknd songs are here, too. Spin reports that "I Can't Feel My Face" is produced by Swedish boss Max Martin (Taylor SwiftBritney SpearsKaty PerryCéline Dionsoooo many more). The mag says it might be a cut from the Weeknd's next album. We're just psyched how damned Michael Jackson-y it's making us feel. 

12 / 15

The Weeknd, "In the Night"

We said "Michael Jackson-y" already, right? Should we say it one more time??

13 / 15

The Weeknd, "In the '90s" [Incomplete Version]

Holy shit—when do we get to hear the full song? This thing's a bruiser. (Also, for those keeping score at home, that's two "In the..." titles in a row.)

14 / 15

Ty Dolla $ign feat. Kendrick Lamar, "L.A."

Seems fair to dub Kendrick Lamar a solid go-to for a song simply titled "L.A."—and Ty Dolla $ign concurs. The cut is hyping the Free TC album, from which we've also heard "Only Right," where Los Angeles tag-team heroes YG and DJ Mustard get in on the fun. Stream that one below, and the new one with K-Dot up top.

15 / 15

And a Wu-Tang Beer

Not new music, but, per a Philly magazine article: a West Philadelphia beer outfit is "currently aging [a] new golden saison" called Dock Street Beer Ain't Nuthin’ to Funk With. How's the brewery teaming with the Shaolin crew for the new brew? By playing Wu on loop, via Spotify, into the pregnant barrel-belly aging the ale—which will have "spicy pineapple and orange-tart flavor."

"I listen to music every day in the brewery and I've wanted to do a series of beers based on the music I like," head brewer Vince Desrosiers tells Philly. "It's hardly an original thought but my musical taste is all over the place and Wu-Tang seemed like a great place to start."
