Peace to the HHW Nation! It’s been a while but we’re back with a new update to our FRSH CRT (Certified Fresh) and we’re aiming to get back to the consistency you’ve all come to expect. Part of our duty as a publication and team is to teach the masses who’s doing what musically and there’s no better way to do that than with our bi-weekly CRT FRSH (Certified Fresh) playlist.
CRT FRSH playlist is a labor of love. We do not accept payments or do favors. We only add joints to our playlist that fit the theme and vision we are looking for and do not seek to waste the listener’s time. Also, we don’t stick to one Hip-Hop way. We believe all aspects of music should be illuminated, whether it’s young lions in the trenches, those hoping for a one-hit blast, or grizzled veterans who puff out their chests and have a lot more to to say.
This week’s update opens with DJ Drama and Dreamville’s “Stick” D-Day just-released mixtape featuring JID, Kenny Mason, J. Cole and Sheck Wes. It continues with the reunion of the THorton brothers, better known among us under the name of Clipse, on the title “Punch Bowl” of Nigo’s I Know NIGO! album.
Lil Durk’s 7220 dropped earlier in the year, and Future’s track “Petty Too” is more what we’ve come to expect from the Chicago star. If you were in the mood to hear City Girls over a Drill, look no further than the duo’s “Top Notch” alongside Fivio Foreign. Shady Records Signer GRIP Drops New Single “Emo Stick,” And We’ve Added “Starting 5” From The Above D-Day project, which features Lute, Cozz, and Omen from Camp Dreamville.
The rest of the roster rounds out with joints from Planet Asia, Benny The Butcher, Vince Staples, Paten Locke and Dillon, Defcee, Kipp Stone, 3 The God Way, RJ Payne, Snowgoons, TF, and more.
