Mike WiLL Made It, Skrillex ruined it. I’m not sure who asked for this (except maybe anybody with a morbid curiosity), but here goes. Tell me, how does one sit down and be humble in a crowd full of juiced-up, paint-covered EDM bros?

Despite hailing from South Florida, Denzel Curry — and many rappers from that Raider Klan era — are heavily inspired by the dark, drugged-out sounds of Three 6 Mafia. Better late than never, Denzel finally links up with Juicy J for the first time on this new remix to his 2015 hit “Ultimate” (which he originally dedicated to the late Lord Infamous). Needless to say, Juicy sounds right at home on this song. It might just be his best verse all year.

“Ultimate” is taken from Denzel Curry’s 32 Zel EP, which he just re-released on Spotify and Apple Music.

mr mfn exquire

Following up his hilarious video for “Bebop and Rocksteady,” Mr. Muthafuckin’ eXquire gives “Strawberry Waterfalls” — another cut off his recently released Braniac EP — a visual makeover. With plenty of psychedelic effects and exotic scenery, this one’s a trip. Every Alchemist beat deserves this kind of treatment.

If a slow ballad like “Strawberry Waterfalls” doesn’t float your boat, there’s plenty of food for thought on eXquire’s Brainiac EP to devour.

After putting his spin on songs from Kehlani and Alex Wiley and dropping freestyles over classic Dilla and Premo beats, Consequence serves up something new of his own with “Imagine.” Produced by Cons himself and featuring scratches by Audible Doctor, the track contains guest verses from Charles Hamilton and Hodgy (fka Hodgy Beats), plus a smooth hook from Kam Corvet. It’s one of the more unexpected lineups you’ll see, but the end result doesn’t disappoint.

“Imagine” will appear on Consequence’s upcoming mixtape Where Hip Hop Lives, dropping next month.

starrah-diplo

Starrah, the singer and songwriter behind Drake’s “Fake Love,” Rihanna’s “Needed Me” and Travi$ Scott’s “Pick Up the Phone,” and Diplo, the EDM dignitary you either love or hate, have joined forces for a new EP. Aptly titled Starrah X Diplo, the quickfire collaboration clocks in at five songs, including the previously released “Imperfections” and “Swerve.” “I’m really happy with her. Starrah’s a songwriter of course. You probably know who she is. She’s written a lot of amazing records. But she’s one of my favorite voices,” Diplo told Zane Lowe earlier this summer. After spending years helping to craft hits behind the scenes, it’s about time Starrah enjoys her own time in the spotlight.

After announcing The Saga Continues — the follow-up to 2015’s A Better Tomorrow — and dropping the Redman-assisted “People Say” last month, Wu-Tang Clan return with another release from their upcoming album. Featuring vintage-sounding Wu production from Mathematics, who handles all of the beats on The Saga Continues, “Lesson Learn’d” finds Redman and Inspectah Deck kicking knowledge from Jersey to Staten Island.

Wu-Tang have also shared the tracklisting for The Saga Continues, which features the rest of the Clan — RZA, Method Man, Ghostface Killah, Raekwon and Cappadonna — plus Chris Rivers, Streetlife and the late Sean Price. The album drops October 13.

jay z bbc radio 1 live lounge

During his recent stop in the UK, which included a headlining set at V Festival, JAY-Z delivered his first BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge performance in almost a decade. Joined by Young Guru and a choir, Hov performed “Family Feud,” off his new album 4:44, and “Numb/Encore,” which he dedicated to the late Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington.

Jay also sat down with BBC Radio 1’s Clara Amfo to discuss his career trajectory from Reasonable Doubt to 4:44, social media, being inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame (and his memorable Twitter speech), Blue Ivy’s freestyle, his next album (“I have some ideas”) and the current political climate in the United States. “This guy, I’m looking at him like, ‘man, this is a joke.’ I can’t even say with all due respect; with all disrespect,” he says. “He’s not a very sophisticated man, especially when it comes to the idea of: until everyone’s free, no one’s free.”
