In The Cut: Nipsey Hussle & King Chip Made XXL’s Top Songs Of The Week


As we put the finishing touches on our upcoming issue, the XXL staff is desperately trying to pick its collective head up and again immerse itself in whatever’s happening in the outside world. Needless to say, we’ve got some catching up to do.

In this week’s news, Nas stopped by Anderson Cooper 360 for a panel chat about the Trayvon verdict; DJ Khaled cutely (and bizarrely) proposed to his YMCMB teammate Nicki Minaj; Kid Cudi teased his forthcoming MOTM III; Mike WiLL announced that Miley Cyrus will be rapping on his new single; and the Trap Lord A$AP Ferg revealed the stellar cover art for his appropriately-titled Trap Lord album, out August 20.

Meanwhile on the music front, XXL‘s 11th Freshman Chief Keef dropped two new jawns; Frank Ocean put out an audio-less “Versace” remix; and Memphis’ King Yo Gotti released the video to his Bay Area-inspired single “Act Right.”

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 light, rap fans.
