Today's hip-hop heavy shuffle is some of what'll keep the soundtracks to this summer's cookouts awesome. T.I. dropped a cut from his upcoming King Uncaged, and Royce Da 5'9" teams up with fellow statesman Big Sean for a radio-friendly hit. Office favorite Sean Price proves rappers don't always need radio play to justify their talent, and Marc Ronson's collaboration with Q-Tip and MNDR sounds like it could be the summer's eclectic anthem. Also, Pastor Troy comes out of hiding with a trunk rattler from his upcoming effort. Enjoy.
