Raekwon is wasting no time this year, today (Jan. 11) dropping his third single of 2018, with “It’s a Shame,” joining the likes of previously released tracks, “The Sky” and “The Biz.” This past year saw the release of the Wu-Tang rapper’s seventh solo album, The Wild, as well as his contributions to Wu’s The Saga Continues project. To keep the momentum going, Raekwon’s latest showcases his tried-and-true lyrical talents, with the Chef going in over RoadsArt production. Check it out above.
Last year, Harlem rapper Ro Ransom emerged to the forefront of the music industry’s “must watch” lists, with his Momentum EP since garnering over 22 million streams on Spotify, impressively since its October 2017 release.
Since the project dropped, the self-proclaimed Mystery Boy has been keeping busy in the studio, this weekend sharing his latest single, “Floetry.” The track, which features vocalist Kensei Abbot, shouts out Kelis and Lady Gaga, telling a tale of success, lust and, at the end of the day, just being human.
Of the song, Ro says, “I love this record. The bounce is crazy, my voice is irresistible and Kensei is just so much fun. Enjoy yourself a little! Mystery Boy has spoken."

After garnering the attention of many new ears with the release of her debut single “The Real Thing Don’t Change,” which broke the Top 40 on the Urban AC chart this past fall, singer Porcelan returns with new music.
Her sophomore single, “Lois Lane,” is a beautiful offering, exploring the emotional space and vulnerability that new love brings.
Of the track, Porcelan says, “Every woman wants a strong man in their lives that makes her feel secure. The ideal fantasy is to be swept off your feet and protected by a strong man who will rescue you from anything that can bring you harm, and Superman’s love for Lois Lane symbolizes that.”

Dua Lipa has been providing banger after banger lately, with the pop singer cementing her reputation as one of 2018’s most exciting talents with each release, three of which just so happen to be charting on the Hot 100 currently.
Saweetie, a fast-rising rapper from the Bay Area, found herself inspired by the London-born singer, giving her track “IDGAF” the official remix treatment.
For the remake, the “ICY GRL” rapper adds several verses, further adding to the celebratory unbothered vibe the track proudly encompasses.
“How it feel, how it feel, how it feel? / Sign off on our connection / And I sign onto a deal,” the fresh Warner Bros signee spits. “Shoulda kept a hundred / Man, you shoulda kept it real / Cause I realize you fake / And you lost all your appeal / It don't hurt when I see you with her / You was always insecure / And believed what you heard.”
Fans can catch Saweetie at the 2018 Miami installment of Rolling Loud, set to take place next weekend (May 11-13) and be livestreamed exclusively by REVOLT TV.
