Because time is a flat circle, this week once again belonged to Young Thug. Not only did the Atlanta savant turn in a stellar guest turn on Jamie xx’s “I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times),” but he spun a disastrous rash of leaks into another hit with the buoyant “That’s All.” Of course, it doesn’t stop there: Kevin Gates continues his inhuman tear, Gunplay teams up with YG and DJ Mustard, A$AP Rocky teases his star-studded new album and Freeway weighs in on the tragic death of Baltimore’s Freddie Gray. These are the XXL staff’s picks for the best songs of the week ending today, May 22.
If your Memorial Day plans don’t involve listening to copious amounts of Dipset, you are legally required to show up to work on Monday. Thankfully, Jim Jones is here to save us all, by way of a new mixtape called Miami Vampin. Meant to promote his new clothing line, Vamp Life, this is a mixtape in the traditional sense, where solo songs commingle with efforts from relative unknowns like Ball Greezy, YD and Zoey Dollaz.
Though Jones has long been a fixture in New York and national rap conversations, his solo catalog has gone curiously overlooked. His first solo effort, On My Way to Church, was released in 2004, between the first and second installments of Dipset’s Diplomatic Immunity series. That album featured an early appearance from The Game, then still affiliated with G-Unit, on the single “Certified Gangstas.” He has released six solo albums to date, the most recent being 2011′s Capo. Jones’ most successful singles are 2006′s “We Fly High” and 2009′s “Pop Champagne,” the latter featuring Ron Browz and Dipset cohort Juelz Santana. He and the rest of the crew have embarked on a reunion tour, which is expected to culminate in a mixtape of new material.

Neil Young and Promise of the Real, a band featuring Willie Nelson’s sons Lukas and Micah, will release their protest LP The Monsanto Years on June 16th, and today Young premiered a first look and listen for the album’s “Rock Starbucks” music video at Democracy Now. Young, once a frequent Starbucks customer, boycotted the coffee company after they aligned with the GMO giant Monsanto in a lawsuit against Vermont.
“I want a cup of coffee, but I don’t want a GMO/I love to start my day off without helping Monsanto,” Young sings on the rollicking track, with the rocker and Promise of the Real hurling empty coffee cups at the camera. “Monsanto, let our farmers grow what they want to grow.” Young first debuted “Rock Starbucks,” along with 10 other tracks likely bound for The Monsanto Years, at a secret show at San Luis Obispo, California’s SLO Brewing Co. on April 16th.
Earlier this month, Young stood by his boycott even following reports that Starbucks was not involved in the Monsanto lawsuit against Vermont. “Still no lattes for me folks. I am not going to support a company that actively tries to defeat the will of the people by fighting their right to know what is in the food they eat,” Young wrote on his official site. “In communications with Starbucks the company was unresponsive to the direct question on whether Starbuck’s coffee product contained GMOs.”
“I don’t really have anything against the human beings working at Monsanto,” Young said during a recent appearance at the IFC Center in New York. “But Monsanto is the poster child for the problems we’re having with the corporate government.”
“Nobody likes Monsanto,” Lukas Nelson told Rolling Stone. “Nobody wants GMOs in their food, or at least they want to know if they’re in there so they can say, ‘No’ if they want. I’m really proud to be on this side of history with Neil.”
This summer, Young and Promise of the Real will embark on their Rebel Content summer trek, where the rocker will visit Vermont, a state he’s never played before. The Burlington Free Press speculates that Young’s concert is a reward for standing up to Monsanto with their laws demanding accurate food labeling.
Another day, another Nicki Minaj exclusive on Tidal. Just days after dropping the video for “Feeling Myself” and setting social media ablaze, Nicki returns with “The Night Is Young.” Nicki shared a few stills from the video on her Instagram and those of you with Tidal can go ahead and peep the video here.
For non-Tidal users, peep a few shots from the vid that have popped up on social media. Based on what has leaked, it looks like Meek Mill is featured heavily in the clip, only solidifying their status as hip-hop’s current “it” couple.

A bootleg version of the video has also leaked, catch it below before it’s taken down:
The rapper’s string of Tidal exclusives may not be over just yet. If we’re to believe her, a collab with Jay Z is coming Memorial Day Weekend and the track will almost certainly premiere via the streaming service.
