GoldLink‘s appearance atop the podium this week might seem like an aberration to some, but remember this: it doesn’t take a heavyweight to climb the pound for pound rankings, just an airtight flow will do. This week’s additions to the FIRE EMOJI playlist all air on the side “highly flammable” with no exception. GoldLink’s impressive follow-up to At What Cost, places him on the peripheries World Level fluency. Very few artists in the game today could leverage such a wide dispersal talent, and come out unparched. “Cokewhite” with Pusha-T did enough to warrant a spot on our list.

Elsewhere on the ledger, Trouble tagged the only eligible City Girl for a very first co-ed encounter in a career predicated by male-centric trap anthems and sonorific darkness. “She A Winner” featuring Yung Miami would have passed for an anomaly had it come out during the colder months the year. As a mid-June song submission, it goes unrivaled.
Otherwise, it was the Dreamville camp and Lil Keed who stole top honors, the latter by showing noticeable signs improvement, and vocal dexterity. Not too long ago, Lil Keed was viewed as green thumb project within the YSL camp. Come summer 2019, the tide has shifted to highlight his growing autonomy in the Atlanta hip-hop scene and beyond.
As for Dreamville, they grace our list on account their TwoPack singles serving the function revving up excitement over the Revenge the Dreamers III compilation. “Down Bad” is our selection from the crop. This week’s playlist also boasts solid contributions from the likes Gucci Mane, Tyga, Future, Jay Critch, and The Free Nationals spearheaded by the one Anderson .Paak.
