30 Rap Songs You Might’ve Missed This Summer


“Palm Trees” Flatbush Zombies

With so much new rap emerging from young, hungry and amorphous New York hip-hop collectives—A$AP Mob, Pro Era, Underachievers and World’s Fair are just a few—it can get a little tough to keep track of them all, but Flatbush Zombies establish their mix of playful rhymes and ghostly samples here. It’s a simple song with a beat that hits like mist floating across a lake, but the nasty, brain-grabbing chorus makes it tough to forget.
