It’s Friday, so I’m here to write about moral panic. Chief Keef, one-time Chicago rap star and current Rahm Emanuel nemesis, took to Soundcloud to drop one of his finest post-Finally Rich cuts, even as his likeness is banned in his hometown and seemingly all of Indiana. Open Mike Eagle and milo further the Midwest-Los Angeles connect (divide?); Young Thug taps incarcerated Atlanta legend Gucci Mane for a new single. Thug’s former Rich Gang partner, Rich Homie Quan gives another take on a familiar thesis. These are the best rap songs that dropped during the week that ends today, August 21.
