Samee's Pick: pOTTER PAYPER - 2020 VISION FREESTYLE
"SAMEE - pOTTER PAYPER REALLY WENT BLIND OVER THIS BEAT. HE DIDN'T COME OUT AND JUMP ON A DRILL BEAT OR AN AFROSWING BEAT FOR THE HELL OF IT, HE CAME BACK AND REMINDED EVERYONE THAT HE'S ONE OF THE COLDEST IN HIS LANE. and the cage production is next level."
Samee is also an aspiring producer as well as law graduate and music enthusiast. Follow @wrecklessbeats and check out what he's been cooking.
Ed's Pick: Lancey Foux - Time For War
"There have been a plethora of tracks dedicated to expressing their feelings and experiences with systematic racism and supporting black lives matter, but none of them slap like this. Its odd having a track that makes you want to cry due to seriousness of the topic, but also makes you want to buss gun fingers and screw up your face because the instrumental actually slaps."

Antonella's Pick: Teyana taylor - Lowkey
"Lowkey is a track from Teyana Taylor new album,“The Album “, featuring the First Lady of Neo- soul Erykah Badu, offering a soulful and smooth sound with samples lyrics from the Badu’s classic 1997 single “Next Lifetime”. Teyana's narrative is simple and straight to the point explaining her unique and honest, view on love and passion, letting her vulnerably come out. R&B at his best."

AJ's Pick : M24 - Peter Pan
"His best song in a while. He executed his delivery and wordplay amazingly on this beat from Lekaa which is quite frankly beautiful. Some clean visuals from Akash Bagga too"
Rachel Air's Pick: 26ix (Ayo1 x Nizz) - 26
"I love this song because they embrace the face the fact that they are from the north (Manchester) and don't attempt to put on a southern accent. Their sound is more authentic as a result because their northern heritage is reflected in their sound meaning it's not generic like every other song in the industry."

Liu's Pick: Abracadabra - Cadabra Freestyle
"In your face and unapologetic, Abra shows why he's arguably the Drill MVP of 2020 and the year's far from finished"
Amber's Pick: Juice Menace - Money Dance
"A refershing rapper from cardiff who I can't wait to see take over the game. I'm ready to see females rise in 2021"
Tom's Pick: (67) AK & TrapX10 - Spazzing
"67's AK and TrapX10 go back to back with effortless flows from AK, and mad wordplay from trapx10 over a menacing beat from the one and only ghosty"
Annabel's Pick: ILL bLU ft M24 & Unknown T- Dumpa
"Ill Blu's instrumental is very up beat and good spirited as far as drill beats go, and adding M24 and Unknown T completes the song nicely. The visuals are entertaining with the futuristic theme and of course fearture two beautiful black women, and that's always a bonus"
Ooreofe's Pick: Teeway Mad About Bars
"One of the Uk's Hottest New Artists, Drops a highly anticipated mad about bars with Kenny Allstar. Teeway's unqiue flow is the highlight of not just this freestyle but of his whole discography. Alongside the hard hitting drill beat from Sebzbeats, this has got to be the best mad about bars of season 5 far."
