Queens emcee Julian Stephen drops off the visuals for his latest single, “Sophisticated Thoughts”, which finds the rapper chilling around local spots amid a distinctive 90s flare. Produced by Chicago’s brandUn DeShay, whose recent work includes Mac Miller, Chance The Rapper, Danny Brown, and Casey Veggies, the beat is cheerful and optimistic which perfectly compliments the visuals. Peep the video for Julian Stephen’s “Sophisticated Thoughts” after the jump.

Last year footage surfaced of Freddie Gibbs and Mike Dean working “in the lab” and ever since then very little additional information has been given regarding that session. Now Gangsta Gibbs has shared a new track entitled “Sellin’ Dope” which gives artist credit to Mike Dean. Our guess is Mike Dean, who is a hip-hop producer and certainly no rapper (best known for working with Kanye West), produced the cut. The track is absolutely menacing, both in production and in overall concept/theme as Dean’s ominous ghastly beat perfectly suits Gibbs’ aggressive flow and hyper-realistic subject matter (yes, sellin’ dope). The track will appear on the Grand Theft Auto V next-gen iteration. Listen after the jump!

Pusha season approaching! After dropping his stellar debut full length My Name Is My Name, Virginia’s number one dope boy spitter Pusha Ton begins rolling out his King Push campaign. And today we are grateful to receive “Lunch Money”, a bombastic and downright straight outta left-field (even more so than last year’s insane “Numbers on the Board”? Maybe) cut produced by the always unpredictable Kanye West. While Pusha does his thing, spitting hot fire it’s truly Yeezus’ production that stands out as the reason you’ll be listening to this one. ‘Ye’s beat here is equipped with unorthodox, disorienting sounds, but all those outrageous nuances are built around a very funky pulse. Listen after the jump.

Rozay continues the monumental rollout for his forthcoming album Hood Billionaire (due out November 24th). He’s already dropped “Keep Doin’ That (Rich B*tch)”, “If They Knew”, “Nickel Rock”, “Movin’ Bass”, and “Trap Luv” so it only makes sense that he drops yet another Hood Billionaire cut. At this point it feels like you’ve heard the album already, no? Anyway… this time around it’s the Metro Boomin produced track “Neighborhood Drug Dealer”. Listen after the jump.
