Quavo Reminds Us Of His “Greatness” On This Weekend's “Fire Emoji” Update
Our final Fire Emoji playlist update of February has landed, and it's got some seriously hot tracks. It's a male-dominated list of releases. Some of them are solo efforts and others are collaborations that are sure to heat up your playlist. Landing at the top of this weekend's list is a posthumous joint from DMX. He connects with Lil Wayne on “Kant Nobody.”
All this time after his tragic death, the New York MCs legacy continues to live on thanks to Weezy's upcoming album. His Tha Carter VI campaign began with this new single. It's sure to continue with even more fire over the coming weeks. Swizz Beatz also helped out with “Kant Nobody,” putting his impressive production skills to great use.
Next, we hear from Quavo, who's slowly returning to the spotlight following the tragic death of his nephew, Takeoff. On “Greatness,” the former Migos member addressed the gossip regarding the future of the rap group. He makes it clear that without his partner in rhyme, he and Offset couldn't go on. Still, we do hope to see the family members put aside their differences and make music together in the future.
Chicago's G Herbo shared his latest, “Raining” on Friday. The father of three chiefly worked with Murda Beatz for the single's fire production. Additionally, he recruited Yung Bleu to put his R&B magic touch on the track as he prepares to drop off his next album in the coming weeks.
Two noteworthy albums we heard this weekend include Don Toliver's Love Sick and Yeat's AftërLyfe. From the former, we selected “Private Landing” featuring Justin Bieber and Future as our title to spotlight. Other guest appearances on the ambitious project come from James Blake, Lil Durk, GloRilla, Kali Uchis, and Brent Faiyaz, just to name a few.
As for the latter, the California native has fans buzzing thanks to yet another collaboration with NBA YoungBoy. After connecting on the Louisana native's Gangsta Grillz tape last October, they came together once again for “Shmunk.” Additionally, from Key Glock's highly anticipated Glockoma 2 tape, we picked “Dirt” for your streaming pleasure.
Our final two fire picks of the week are EST Gee's latest, “Undefeated,” as well as a link-up between Conway the Machine, Sauce Walka, and Juicy J. The trio celebrated the NFL Championship earlier this month with “Super Bowl,” a nearly four-minute-long banger that's sure to satisfy fans.
