Monday’s (May 22) edition of the DX Digest highlights a remix of Childish Gambino’s “Redbone” by none other than Wiz Khalifa. The latest in his recent string of “Weedmixes,” this version has little to nothing to do with relationships and where they go sour. Instead, we see the Pittsburgh native embrace the pastime he knows and loves best.
Additionally, Kali Uchis drops a Jorja Smith-assisted tune titled “Tyrant,” providing some hint that her long-delayed debut album is on the way. Philly’s PnB Rock also delivers quite possibly the best remix of French Montana’s “Unforgettable” that you’ll hear.
Wiz Khalifa – “Stay Stoned”
Since rising the ranks of the underground, Wiz Khalifa has done nothing but give us his life. That includes more songs about his love for marijuana than we care to count. But what’s one more, eh? Wiz delivers “Stay Stoned,” a “Weedmix” of Childish Gambino’s soul-stirring single “Redbone.” Per usual, the Taylor Gang founder is unabashed when professing his love for the sticky green leaf.
Kali Uchis F. Jorja Smith – “Tyrant”
Colombian songstress Kali Uchis has been promising her debut album for some time. But she revealed to Zane Lowe that the project is done, as she and her team gear up the rollout. The announcement was accompanied by her new single “Tyrant,” featuring UK singer Jorja Smith. This groove has a nice little bounce that could take your summer cookout to a place.
PnB Rock – “Unforgettable (Remix)”
We’re sure a light bulb clicked at some point as PnB Rock freestyled over French Montana’s “Unforgettable” at Power 106, because he promptly went to the studio to record the official version. The Philly product with a natural penchant for melody shows exactly why Atlantic Records invested in him here.
Lil Yachty f. Key! – “Yea”
Lil Yachty promises his haters that he has two hands and they both work on “Yea,” a newly leaked track featuring fellow Atlanta native Key!. Produced by F1lthy, this is the sort of quality freebie that should precede your anticipated debut album. Teenage Emotions arrives on Friday, May 26.
Rockie Fresh f. King Louie – “Fresh On The Moon”
Rockie Fresh broke his silence over the weekend with three new tracks, including the King Louie-assisted “Fresh On The Moon.” Representing different aspects of Chicago’s diverse rap scene, the duo finds different means to a similar end with braggadocios verses – Rockie representing the floss, while Louie’s approach is more street-influenced.
Deniro Farrar – ‘Guilty Until Proven Innocent’ EP
The conversation around the disproportionate mass incarceration of black and brown people, and the prison industrial complex as a whole, is a personal one for Deniro Farrar, whose brother is currently in prison for murder. He delivered a touching six-song EP called Guilty Until Proven Innocent that speaks on each of the aforementioned topics.
Young M.A – “Self M.Ade”
The glow up can happen quicker than you can say “Self M.Ade,” which is the case in the visual for Young M.A’s song of the same title. A highlight from her Herstory EP, we see the Brooklyn native living out dreams of driving an Audi R8 with a matte black paint job.
IshDARR – “Dumb Playing”
Milwaukee’s own IshDARR delivers some heartfelt rhymes center court in the BMO Harris Bradley Center – home of the Milwaukee Bucks – in the visual for “Dumb Playing.” Press play and let those piano keys take you to a place. Damien Blue directs the show.
