Best New Tracks: Travis Scott, Bones, Lil Uzi Vert, Nav, Yung Lean and More

Hottest tunes from the week.

By //Music 

For this week’s music roundup, we saw plenty of one-off singles and not so many full-length projects, EP’s and mixtapes as we have in the last two weeks—aside from Earl Sweatshirt’s fully-produced EP, which he plans to sell for $111.11 USD. Outside the music, however, Meek Mill captured headlines this week after he was unexpectedly sentenced to a mandatory two to four-year prison sentence for violating his probation. Days later, the Roc Nation rapper’s legal team alleged the judge in his case had a personal vendetta against Meek Mill after he allegedly refused to shout her out in a song last year.

On the note of Roc Nation, ticket sales for JAY-Z’s ‘4:44’ concert were reportedly selling for as low as $6 USD; reps from Live Nation were quick to clarify that the pricing reflects a new strategy to squeeze out resellers and generate more profits for artists, hence this tour will be JAY-Z’s highest grossing tour ever. Speaking of tours, Drake debuted a new song in New Zealand while on his ‘Boy Meets World Tour,’ while also unveiling to the world during a new interview with the Hollywood Reporter that he collects Hermès Birkin bags.

Check out our picks for this week down below and let us know what you think in the comment section.

After an exploration of another side of his sound with last month’s Resurrection release, the TeamSESH artist is back to being “Nosferatu in the dungeon” on “XLR,” taken off his newest mixtape, NetworkUnknown. Atmospheric, hard-hitting, melancholic and gloomy, the tune is everything you could want from a concise Bones single.
