The Best Rap Songs of February 2020
“Pyro (leak 2019)” – Denzel Curry
Like much of Denzel Curry and Kenny Beats’ Unlocked album, “Pyro (leak 2019)” leaves listeners wanting more due to its short runtime. Despite clocking in at less than two minutes, the track is filled with potent bars and stylistic flair. From altered vocals on a Mario reference and hitting high notes like ODB to witty wordplay about Goodie Mob and Malcolm X, Curry packs a heavy punch on the lone verse of “Pyro (leak 2019).”
“Upside Down” – Royce Da 5’9 f. Benny The Butcher
Over a loopy interpolation of the classic novelty hit “Tom’s Diner,” Royce Da 5’9 and Benny The Butcher prove why their amongst the elite lyricists of today’s Hip Hop on “Upside Down.” Name another record in 2020 that will give you a history lashing on South African Khoikhoi woman Sarah Baartman while simultaneously inducing the screw face.
“Rogue Wave” – Aesop Rock
Following a self-imposed hiatus, wordplay wizard Aesop Rock reemerged with “Rogue Wave” earlier this month, yet another verbose offering in his expansive catalog. The song marks the Rhymesayer MC’s first musical offering since January 2019’s Malibu Ken project.
“1997” – Key Glock
South Memphis rapper Key Glock tells his story on the haunting Bandplay-produced track “1997,” which is taken from the recently released album Yellow Tape. The Paper Route EMPIRE rapper stays true to his hometown with his Three 6 Mafia flow and bluesy rhymes.
