Conflict transforms us. This week in new music focuses on what happens when rappers let beef go or decide to hold onto it no matter the consequences. We see two Atlanta legends link up for a collaboration album after ceasing a cold war only a few months prior. Another Southern rapper rises from a near fatal shooting with a track that is sure to get fans talking.

Thankfully, every conflict isn’t wrapped up in the trappings of toxic masculinity. Some of R&B’s more subdued, mellow, and reflective artists team-up to great effect. There are songs about cheating and egos, but it never gets louder than a sweet whisper.

These are The Top New Songs You Should Listen to Right Now.
