As Black Future Month continues to gain momentum, artists are seemingly shedding their reclusive ways and joining forces to deliver some of the biggest collaborations of 2021 thus far.
In this week’s edition of HipHopDX’s New Music Friday Singles coverage, several super stars have banded together to deliver dynamic releases, highlighted by the return of Queen rapper Nicki Minaj, who has recruited Lil Baby — the reigning Billboard juggernaut of Quality Control Music.
Brooklyn drill rapper Fivio Foreign follows in the footsteps of his fellow New York Hip Hop peer by delivering his Kanye West and Alicia Keys-assisted All-Star collab while production collective Internet Money laces Bay Area-bred lyricist 24kGoldn with sauce for his new single.
There are also fresh offerings from Yo Gotti’s CMG signees 42 Dugg and Blacc Youngsta, Curren$y and The Alchemist, Mozzy and Roddy Ricch and more.
Check out the full list of releases that dropped on Friday (February 11), below.
Fivio Foreign f. Kanye West, Alicia Keys – “City Of God”
Following his public service announcement, Fivio Foreign is gifting his fans with what he claims is the “feature of the year.”
Seemingly still inspired by the Holy Spirit and his contributions to DONDA 2 studio sessions, Fivio brings Alicia Keys and Kanye West to the “City Of God.”
Nicki Minaj f. Lil Baby – “Bussin”
As if the lyrical damage Nicki Minaj and Lil Baby dealt with their recent collaboration “Do We Have A Problem” wasn’t enough, The Pinkprint rapper has commissioned the QC to run it back.
Bobbing and weaving over the ridiculously electric production, Nicki Minaj and Lil Baby keep things “Bussin.”
Future f. Kevin Samuels – “Worst Day”
In an Instagram post on Thursday, Future seemingly dealt with his addiction to women with the help of entrepreneur and social media personality Kevin Samuels.
Turning his IG therapy session into his latest toxic banger, Future details why he ends up having the “Worst Day” when he encounters the allure of exotic women.
Saweetie f. H.E.R. – “Closer”
Pairing Saweetie and H.E.R. over a funky guitar riff feels like a match made in heaven.

Duke Deuce f. Rico Nasty – “Falling Off”
Both Duke Deuce and Rico Nasty both have the odds stacked against them as up-and-coming artists.

Curren$y f. The Alchemist – “Tonight’s Show”
