Kingdom f/ Vince Staples | Common

With so much attention being focused on Chicago and its gun issues, many rappers have been taking a stand to either represent the Windy City or showing their disapproval of the current state of affairs. One of the first rappers to take a stand was Common. Now he’s back, in a far different hip-hop landscape. He brings in the new beats and Vince Staples feature, but keeps the OG message intact. 

Youth | Ben Khan

Bouncing between pop and R&B, “Youth” is a playful romp down memory lane. Where it lacks in lyrics, it more than makes up with Khan’s smooth voice.
