HNHH Staff Picks Playlist: Tyler, The Creator, Vince Staples, H.E.R., & More

Posted By on June 21, 2021

Our brand new Staff Picks playlist update features new music from Tyler, The Creator, H.E.R., Isaiah Rashad, Vince Staples, Migos, Gucci Mane, Dro Kenji, & more.

Polo G and Migos just faced off in a battle for the #1 spot on the Billboard 200, which was awarded to the Chicago rapper after a solid first week of sales for his third studio album Hall Of Fame. Beating out Migos’ Culture III album, the Atlanta-based trio ended up at the #2 spot with a strong first week, setting the tone for the next week of new music.

After getting two potential AOTY contenders a few weeks ago, hip-hop fans had more to listen to this weekend with new music from Gucci Mane, YSL Records’ Unfoonk, newcomer Dro Kenji, GoldLink, and more being released. Every week, our editorial staff mulls over our favorite drops of the last few weeks, shining a light on our personal playlist picks for a complete look at what we’ve been listening to from our home offices. After Friday’s releases, you’ll see a few common themes from each of our editors with H.E.R. having a popular album, Migos still dominating after a week, and the new singles from Vince Staples and Isaiah Rashad earning multiple picks on the latest playlist update.

This week’s playlist starts off with Tyler, The Creator‘s new single “LUMBERJACK” before leading into more of the new music that was released last week, including picks from Kodak Black, Don Toliver, OMB Bloodbath, and more.

Check out all of our individual selections below and let us know who has the best taste in music.
