5. Young Jeezy's Strip Club Anthem
"Magic City on a Monday, Esco treat that sh*t like church on a Sunday." Just like the lyrics from Drake reads, everyone knows on a Monday, strip club, Magic City is the place to be. The place is always star-studded. It is only right Young Jeezy'z next major single with the name, "Magic City Monday," matches that. In the new track, Jeezy teams up with fellow Atlanta stars, 2 Chainz and Future. These rappers not only span multiple areas in the Atlanta music scene, but also are frequent strip club attendees. While it makes sense this track will be in heavy rotation at the Atlanta strip club, but it also serves a potential huge radio hit.

4. Tyler, the Creator Remixes "Pillowtalk"
Zayn Malik, allegedly, flaked on multiple studio sessions, but that did not stop Tyler, the Creator from getting his version of Malik's hit "Pillowtalk" done. In the absence of the former One Direction group member, Tyler recorded not only a remix to the song, but also a video of himself dancing to it, in March. Tyler says the latter was due to him not having any art for the song. First Tyler posted it on Twitter and then retweeted a fan's ripped version for Soundcloud. Check out either here.
3. G.U.M.P. DROPS THEIR DEBUT PROJECT 'SLEVIN'
@UnoHype's band @GiveUsMorePower, G.U.M.P., just dropped their debut project Slevin and the brevity is beautiful.

Fans get just a taste, a feeling, a vibe from a song then it is taken away. The brevity not only makes it an easy repeat listen, but rather a necessity. Clocking in just under 14 minutes, G.U.M.P.'s debut project does not underperform. For more on the EP check it out here.
2. More Logic
Last week's #TopFive talked about how Logic boastfully raps over a trap beat in "Flexicution," well this week the Maryland born rapper is back with more. In a collaboration with notorious trap artist and fellow DMV rapper, Pusha T, Logic spits even grittier this time! What is even crazier is the production on the song. The beat was also a collaboration, between Logic and his in-house producer and former University of Maryland Terp, 6ix. The mix of all these elements along with the drug dealer diary tales serves as the perfect palette for a track titled, "Wrist." Check out what Logic, Pusha T and 6ix whipped up.
1. Wale's 'Summer on Sunset'
Last week Wale set the mood for all summer 16. In what serves as the prequel to his next studio album, Shine, the District rapper drops off the 17-song summer soundtrack, Summer on Sunset. As the title suggests the mixtape gives a summer vibe. Wale gives his fans exerts of his current predicaments. In an effort to clear his head, he left the District for the warmer coast. While in Los Angeles he is set to record his next album, Shine, but keeps getting interrupted by phone calls, to which Wale does not answer. The voicemails serve as interludes. Those that make appearances include Jerry Seinfeld, Amy Schumer and Pete Davidson. Jeremy Scott also makes an appearance. His feature fits perfectly with Wale's brand of fashion raps. The tracks are full of boastful raps about Wale's vast wardrobe that started with humble beginnings. Aside from the fashion tip, Wale talks to the pretty young things out there and his PYT parties are often alluded to in the voicemail interludes. Aside from the voicemails, Cam'ron, Ty Dolla $ign, Tha Dogg Pound plus many more are featured on the tape. Take a listen below and let it ride out ... into the sunset.
