Welcome to February! Hip-hop releases are off and rolling, so that means there's a new batch of songs every day. It can get a little tough to stay aware and in the know, but XXL is going to make that way easier for you. Stick with us and you'll never get laughed at for your kickback playlist again. This week has new freestyles, big-time collabs and plenty of rappers who are trying to enter 2019 with a fire song or two. Enjoy this week's roundup below.

Nicki Minaj seems to be on a run of rapping over the popular rap songs of the last few months. The latest beat she took for a spin is Blueface's chart-climber "Thotiana," which she's rebranded as "Bust Down Barbiana." She rhymes for about two minutes, bouncing through flows and shouting out Teyana Taylor in the process. Nicki hopped on the track to enjoy herself and it shows, as the verse is a fun listen.

As a guy who's been in the news a lot lately, it shouldn't be forgotten that Soulja Boy's number one focus is the music. His new single is "Trappin Out Da Mansion" off of his upcoming album How Could You Blame Me? The track is reminiscent of Soulja Boy of old, with a fun hook and a thumper of a beat. Soulja might have it all figured out.

The Dreamville duo EarthGang are composed of Johnny Venus and Doctur Dot, both of which are skilled rhymers in their own right. On their new single "Proud Of U," they recruit Young Thug to join them in an off-kilter yet catchy ode to the women in their lives. There's singing, rapping and everything in between on here. Thugger and EarthGang are a great match; here's to more music from these guys.
