Metro Boomin — “VILLIANS VERSION (CHOPPEDNOTSLOPPED)”
Metro Boomin’s Heroes & Villains was the pièce de résistance for hip-hop in 2022. With features from Travis Scott, Young Thug, The Weeknd, Takeoff and more, Metro’s sophomore solo album not only proved to be one of the best records of the year, but became a cultural phenomenon by way of its Marvel Movie-esque rollout. Chopping and screwing his latest work, Metro’s VILLAINS VERSION takes H&V’s menacing vibes to the dance floor for a coveted CHOPPEDNOTSLOPPED rendition.
Big Scarr — “The Secret Weapon”
The fallen 1017 superstar’s first posthumous album The Secret Weapon is a welcome reminder of Big Scarr’s long-lasting personality. With 17 tracks featuring Gucci Mane, Key Glock, Pooh Shiesty, Enchanting and Seddy Hendrinx, Scarr’s legacy is forever enshrined amongst Memphis’ best and brightest, like the late Young Dolph. Long live Big Scarr.
TyFontaine — “The Revive”
Ken Carson — “i need u”
