Songs of the Week returns to keep you busy throughout the weekend. A few artists made sure to provide us with some new tunes throughout the past seven days, most of which were not too shabby. With the first quarter of 2016 coming to a close, we can honestly say that the music is only getting better and better and is sure to improve as we get deeper into the rest of the year.
After last week’s killer lineup, featuring songs by rappers GLC, Flo-Rida, and producer Baauer, our picks for this week are definitely worthy of infiltrating your eardrums. Our latest edition of Songs of the Week contains three new head-nodding tracks from AG Da Coroner, B.o.B & Scotty ATL, and Fat Joe & Remy Ma.

Brooklyn’s own AG Da Coroner is looking to place his hardbody stamp on the rap game with his his forthcoming debut album, Sip the Nectar. His newest offering is just a sample of what he has in store for the goons and stick-up kids in the streets. The pride of East New York teams up with fellow Latin rhymer Bodega Bamz on the chilling “I95,” which should make more than a few listeners tuck their chain in off the realness. Produced by Alchemist, the track features Da Coroner putting rap heads to bed with brutal one-liners and idle threats that sound sweet to the ear of anyone pining for a little bit of hardcore rap. Sip The Nectar drops on March 10.
“We Got Tricked”
B.o.B may have caused a firestorm with his comments on the earth being flat, but he’s redeemed himself with his latest single, “We Got Tricked.” Hooking up with fellow Georgian Scotty ATL, both rappers get sickly with it while reminiscing on the good old days. Scotty sets it off spitting “Came back with the good foot, came back with it / Still twisting on the good wood (Till I get it) / N—- be flexing ’bout the past, know you grew up in good hood (Hold up) / Bitch is like a finger roll, getting bread like a dinner roll / I ain’t even trine f— the bitch if she ain’t a centerfold.”
B.o.B drops bars on the second verse, rhyming “They want me to calm down, I can’t cause I’m knee deep / What happened to activist? What happened to free speech? / You out on the front steps, I’m out on the frontline / The lotto has no mind, the good n—-‘s dumb time” and finessing over the beat. “We Got Tricked” is a rollicking loosie that should hold fans over until B.o.B and Scotty’s joint project is released.
“All the Way Up”
A rap trifecta of Bronx bombers connect and go “All the Way Up” on this new club-ready heater. Fat Joe teams up with Remy Ma and French Montana and delivers one of the hottest cuts of the week. French Montana plays the hook, rapping “Shawty what you want, shorty, what you need / My n—-s run the game we will never leave / Counting up this money, we ain’t ever sleep / You want V12’s, I got 12 V’s.”
Fat Joe takes over spitting, “For all my n—-s with Bentley and Rolexes / Kick the bitch out the room and give her no breakfast / Had to stash the jewels, these bitches so reckless / Keep my hoes on cruise, I’m talking no texts.” Finally, Remy Ma completes the cypher with some fiery bars of her own. Remy and Fat Joe’s upcoming collaborative project, Platos o Ploma, is due to be released later this year. “All the Way Up” is a great way to get the ball rolling and earns the duo an entry on our Songs of the Week list.
