Best Songs of the Week Featuring Rick Ross, OMB Peezy and More
XXL has a stacked lineup for the best songs of the week. There are lots of quality records in our latest selections with Rick Ross leading the way.
Rozay was bound to be included this week due to the release of his new album Rather You Than Me. The Miami rapper went above expectations though with his Birdman diss track "Idols Become Rivals." Ross pulled no punches, airing out the Cash Money Records co-founder for his misdeeds.
“Knew that you would never visit B.G./Turk came home, take that boy a three piece/Shooting dope, using coke, moving like you the folks/Sacrificing half our life for your new music cult/You would give us self-esteem and motivate our drive/But was in our pockets by the time we count to five/I pray you find the kindness in your heart for Wayne/His entire life he gave you what there was to gain/I watched this whole debacle, so I’m part to blame/Last request, can all producers please get paid,” Ross rapped on the closing verse.
Mobile rapper OMB Peezy locked down a spot with his new song "Loyalty Over Love." The record showed why E-40 was smart to sign this young MC.
Starlito and Don Trip delighted their fans with the release of Step Brothers Three. The Tennessee duo crafted a bunch of dope songs for the project, but the intro "Yeah 5X" was the cream of the crop.
Levi Carter linked up with Lucki Ecks for a grim cut called "Feels Like Death." The slow and deliberate pace made for a gloomy vibe as the two rapped about drug abuse in times of depression.
Finally, Tee Grizzley secured a place in this week's selections with his new single "From the D to the A." The Detroit rapper enlisted Lil Yachty for the track, which saw both men trading rhymes and displaying great chemistry.
