HotNewHipHop’s Fire Emoji playlist is home to plenty of notable releases this week. Artists have made their debuts, femcees have gone for each other’s throats, and rappers have unveiled their eagerly-anticipated LPs. Megan Thee Stallion quite literally kicks things off by saying “f*ck y’all,” unleashing her inner snake on “Hiss.” The track sees the Houston hottie take aim at critics and reignite her messy feud with Nicki Minaj. She describes the track as a “warning,” and it goes without saying that she got the message across. The song is unapologetic and bold, with Meg notifying haters that she’s not only here to stay, but here to conquer.
Ice Spice also came through with a read this week on “Think U the Sh*t (Fart),” reminding listeners that no other MC can come close. The Bronx-born baddie lends her signature, focused flow to carefree bars about breaking hearts and taking names on a track grounded by bubby, fun production. She also cruises around Miami in the accompanying music video, partying with her crew and hitting up the local deli.
