Big K.R.I.T. – Money on the Floor (ft. 8Ball & MJG, 2 Chainz).

K.R.I.T. has become a rallying point for artists who want to make woozy Southern bangers. “Money on the Floor” knocks accordingly.

Zilla Rocca – Alicia Interlude (produced by Floodwatch).

Best song about a love triangle since “My Girl Gotta Girlfriend.” It might even be a little better. Listen to Nights & Weekends here. On the murkier side of things, listen to Zilla’s remix of “Ashes” by Emcee Unless below. Sphere: Related Content
