Glaive – i wanna slam my head against the wall

Lana Del Rey – White Dress
On the Chemtrails over the Country Club opener, Lana looks back at her pre-frame life in the rearview mirror.
M1llionz – How Many Times ft. Lotto Ash
M1llionz, one of the most distinctive rappers in the UK right now, enlists fellow Brummie Lotto Ash for How Many Times, which feels a little brighter and lighter than the dark drill sound that M1llionz made his name with.
Ayo Britain – Pain
Taken from this new EP Blue Woo, on Pain the Manchester singer-rapper (and NQ affiliate) demonstrates his gift for bittersweet melodies.
Enny – Same Old
Warm, honest and soulful hip-hop from the rising South London star.
JAE5 – Dimension ft. Skepta & Rema
JAE5, the producer mostly known for this genius work with J Hus, shares this single featuring Nigerian teen star Rema and Skepta. Big Smoke has claimed this could be the second last track you’ll hear him on for a while (there’s also an OFB collab dropping soon), so cherish these bars.
IDK – Just Like Martin
The LA-via-Maryland rapper flexes over a skeletal beat.
Alewya & Moses Boyd – The Code
The London-based artist Alewya has teamed up with the city’s most prolific jazz drummer for this politically-charged track that’s drenched with guitar shredding.
