Most people are still buzzing about Nicki Minaj’s venomous diss track “No Frauds” with Lil Wayne and Drake, which she revealed late Thursday (March 9) night. While her “#3PackFromParis,” which also features “Regret In Your Tears” and “Changed It,” continues to make waves across the industry, the DX Digest for Friday (March 10) instead focuses on Talib Kweli and Styles P’s new video for “Last Ones” and Rick Ross’s “Trap Trap Trap” single with Young Thug and Wale from Rozay’s forthcoming album, Rather You Than Me.
Hanz On’s posse cut with Method Man and Ghostface Killah, “Smoke Like We Do,” Devin The Dude’s “Acoustic Levitation,” and Daylyt’s “Polygamy,” which he dubbed as a response to Nicki and Remy, follow closely behind. Music from RaRa and T.I., A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie and Kodak Black, Jurassic 5’s DJ Nu-Mark, Yellow Claw and Quavo, and CyHi The Prynce also usher in the weekend.
Talib kweli & Styles P – “Last Ones”
For all those Hip Hop purists out there, Talib Kweli and Styles P of The LOX are gearing up to release their collaborative album, The Seven, which features Rapsody, Chris Rivers, Common and fellow LOX MCs Jadakiss and Sheek Louch. In anticipation of the April 14 event, Kweli and Styles P have dropped a video for the album single, “Last Ones.” Directed by Suj Jus, the video finds the Hip Hop heavyweights murdering the musical landscape as they spit about Hip Hop’s seemingly watered down culture. Watch it above and pre-order the album here.
Rick ross f. Wale & Young Thug – “trap trap trap”

hanz on F. MEthod man & Ghostface killah – “Smoke like We do”
Hanz On has been pumping out Wu-Tang-assisted bangers for awhile. His latest, “Smoke Like We Do,” again finds Wu-Tang vets Method Man and Ghostface Killah along for the ride. The song serves as the final warm-up before Hanz drops his new project, BARCA, which is expected to arrive next week.
Devin The dude – “Acoustic levitation”
Houston’s Devin The Dude has been relatively quiet in terms of album output. His last project was 2013’s One For The Road, however, that just changed with the release of Acoustic Levitation, a 14-track journey into the mind of one of Hip Hop’s highest MCs. Check out the audio from the title track above and cop the album here.
daylyt – “polygamy (Reply To Nicki & Remy)”
Battle rap impresario Daylyt wasted no time penning his thoughts on Nicki Minaj’s diss track “No Frauds” and has addressed his issues with it on the new track “Polygamy (Reply To Nicki And Remy).” He tackles their vapid lyrical content and superficial concerns. For nearly four-and-a-half minutes, he goes in on both female rappers and claims he’d diss Nas, too.
rara f. t.i. – “for the money”
RaRa has been tirelessly at work pushing out video after video and track after track. As one of the latest signees to T.I.’s Grand Hustle Records imprint, it was only a matter of time before another collaboration surfaced. This time, it’s in the form of “For The Money,” which comes from RaRa’s new project, I Am What I Am. It precedes his new video for “Dear Summer,” which debuted on DX early Friday (March 10).
A Boogie wit da hoodie f. kodak black – “Drowning”
Kodak Black has managed to pull himself away from the “Cash Me Ousside” girl long enough to jump on a track with A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie titled “Drowning.” Not surprisingly, the song has little to do with water and instead revolves around the duo drowning themselves in money, jewelry and women.
DJ Nu-Mark (Jurassic 5) – “zodiac tracks: Pisces”
DJ Nu-Mark of beloved Hip Hop collective Jurassic 5 is back with the next installment of his Zodiac Tracks series, this one in honor of Pisces.
