A$AP Mob members Rocky, Ferg, Nast, and Twelvyy released a new single this week titled Hella Hoes and ironically it seems to be exactly what Tyler the Creator is making fun of in his Loiter Squad skit I Just Bought a New Bugatti (I’m Happy). However, it is still a banger and will be featured on A$AP Mob’s upcoming album L.O.R.D which is set to be released sometime this year, no confirmed date yet. While promoting their new single Hot 97 had the Mob over and Funkmaster Flex played “Who Shot You?” instrumental by Biggie while all members dropped in for a verse. Most notably Ferg and Rocky rapping back and forth and poking fun at 50 cent. Take a listen to both.

My boy Bishop Nehru dropped an EP this week with Las Vegas up-and-comer Dizzy Wright, and it perfectly exemplifies why so many big names in the rap game have taken such an interest in the 17 year old New York rapper. Including underground legend MF Doom whom he is dropping an album this year sometime titled NehruvianDOOM, that will definitely be something else. With producers such as DOOM, Ghost McGrady, J.Dilla, Madlib, and even Disclosure already making beats for this youngster it is no doubt that 2014 will be a huge breakout year for this talented rapper. Take a listen to his EP with Dizzy Wright and be on the lookout for NehruvianDOOM.
