The Best Songs of 2017 So Far

If you're looking for good rap music, the first half of 2017 did not disappoint. Future alone, across two of his best projects to date, laced us with 34 new songs.

The following is a collection of the songs that have stuck with us, and likely will continue to, this year; it's the best...

The Unorthodox Rise of Playboi Carti | Pigeons & Planes Update

Whatever your take on Atlanta rapper Playboi Carti, there’s no denying his success.
