Earlier this month, Young Thug and Carnage introduced us to their new coalition, Young Martha, with the Meek Mill-assisted “My Home” and its wonderfully wacky video. Today the duo serve up a second — and final — taste of their upcoming Young Martha EP in the form of “Liger,” which finds Thugga flexing in typically flamboyant fashion over some Zaytoven-esque production from Carnage. “Errbody got tigers so I want go get a liger / I’m so different from these n*ggas I don’t wanna be like ’em,” he raps.

Young Martha EP is scheduled to drop at midnight tonight.

Two years after teaming up on To Pimp a Butterfly‘s “Complexion (A Zulu Love),” Rapsody and Kendrick Lamar reunite on “Power,” the latest — and most appetizing — leak from Rap’s upcoming album, Leila’s Wisdom. Also featuring TDE’s Lance Skiiiwalker, the track finds Rapsody and Kendrick picking up where they left off and preaching black power over some rugged production.

Leila’s Wisdom is out this Friday, September 22, featuring additional appearances from Busta Rhymes, Anderson .Paak and Black Thought.

Hip-hop is becoming something of a fixture in season 21 of South Park. After spoofing Kendrick Lamar’s “HUMBLE.” in last week’s season premiere, Trey Parker and Matt Stone turned their attention to Logic’s “1-800-273-8255″ during last night’s episode, “Put It Down.” In an effort to win his girlfriend Heidi back — and in a typically narcissistic ploy to get attention while the rest of school are consumed by North Korea and the danger of distracted drivers — Cartman performs his own rendition of Logic’s suicide awareness anthem throughout the school hallways. Unfortunately for Eric, it doesn’t look like anyone was buying his sudden conscious rap schtick.

In other hip-hop cartoon news, Logic recently appeared as himself in Adult Swim’s Rick and Morty.
