In The Cut: Travi$ Scott And Rick Ross Made XXL’s Top Songs Of The Week


It’s been a busy week at the XXL offices. As we close out our upcoming issue and continue to gear up for more dates of the XXL Freshmen Live Tour—which recently stopped in New York City and saw performances from the entire Freshmen class alongside special guests like Fat Trel, Troy Ave and Riff Raff—we’ve also been working hard to stay up on all the new music and news that dropped this week.

On the music front, the Black Hippy machine united for a remix of Rocko’s “U.O.E.N.O.” and it might be the track’s best version yet. Also, Travi$ Scott finally released Owl Pharaoh, a stellar mixtape/album that he’d reportedly been working on since 2011; New York heroes Action Bronson and Joey Bada$$ announced release dates of their upcoming projects; and Mr. Muthafuckin’ eXquire released the incredible cover art for his forthcoming Kismet mixtape. And on the news side, Katy Perry and Chief Keef got in an unlikely Twitter beef, Trinidad Jame$ admitted that “Taking drugs is not right” and Paris Hilton reportedly signed with Cash Money Records.

In our weekly column called In The Cut, the diversely opinionated XXL staff celebrates another lively week in hip-hop and picks some of their favorite releases from the past week. Until next week—keep it trendy, rap fans.
