Intersections’ summer rap-up playlist

Rappers Rich Tha Kid, Lil Uzi Vert, and Drake

The past few months have been an interesting time for rap music. Kanye West dropped a polarizing project following his political tirades on Twitter and other media outlets, newcomers Lil Baby and Juice WRLD burst onto the scene with help from other popular rappers, and Travis Scott released a new album that can only be described as straight fire. Here is a look at some of our favorite tracks that came out this summer.

Chun Li by Nicki Minaj

Did Nicki’s new album, Queen, kind of flop? Not really. It debuted at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100, but this position did not make Nicki happy. Has she since had several confusing and kind of embarrassing meltdowns? Definitely. But this single from Queen still slaps. Yaaasss Miss King Kong.

In My Feelings by Drake

It seems like Drake has a summer hit every year, and this time it was the New Orleans bounce-influenced “In My Feelings.” The accompanying music video was also a big hit, and the song may have been overplayed, but most summer jams are.

Reel It In by Aminé

Aminé’s new project, which he has dubbed an EPLPMixtapeAlbum, is refreshingly different from his past work. “Reel it In” has production and flow so good that you’ll be wishing it was twice as long as it is.

SKELETONS by Travis Scott

This track from Travis Scott’s ASTROWORLD has insane features from Pharrell Williams, Tame Impala, and The Weeknd, giving it a unique sound that shouldn’t work as well as it does.
