This Week in Miami Hip-Hop: Sylvan LaCue, Rick Ross, and More

It's Friday, which means we're bringing you all the best in this week's South Florida hip-hop scene. See what dropped this past week, and be ready to bring these tracks with you into the weekend. 

5. Oyabun, "Mona Lisa"

Palm Beach resident OYABUN says he will do anything for his “Mona Lisa" in his latest record. The things this Brooklyn-born lyricist and modern-day Romeo would do for his muse include blowing money fast on lavish gifts for her, crowning her as his "WCW" on Instagram, and giving her the world. Check out his newest offering and, if you see this man on Tinder, swipe right, because he is looking for love. 
4. Jasiel Faraón, “No Dejes Que Te Cuente”

Miami-based MC Jasiel Faraón unleashes lyrical fury over a boom-bap style instrumental in his latest record “No Dejes Que Te Cuente.” The Dominican rapper attacks the beat with his killer flow and hard-hitting, Spanish bars that call out the social injustices being committed by the government on the island of the Dominican Republic.
3. B. Smyth ft. Rick Ross “Gold Wrappers”
Not long after his split from Motown, ByStorm Entertainment’s newest signee B. Smyth makes boss moves with Maybach Music Group CEO Rick Ross in the official video for “Gold Wrappers.” The Fort Lauderdale crooner links up with the Carol City native for a wild night out at the strip club along with the king of Snapchat DJ Khaled. Watch the sensual visual for B. Smyth and Rick Ross’ latest collaboration above. 
2. Sylvan LaCue, "Emeryville"

Miami native Sylvan Lacue (fka QuEST) revisits his recent project, Far From Familiar, for his new video. In “Emeryville,” Lacue wakes up in a beautiful field in California surrounded by trees. Eventually, the 25-year-old rapper finds the girl of his dreams and follows her until they reach the beginning of the Golden Gate Bridge. Also, the cinematography is gorgeous.  
1. Fat Nick ft Pouya $uicide Boy$ Sir Michael Rocks and Robb Banks “TTYL (Remix)”

Fat Nick is back with the usual suspects on the “TTYL (Remix).” The Miami rapper enlists the $uicide Boy$, Sir Michael Rocks, and fellow South Florida residents Pouya and Robb Bank$ for the official remix of Nick’s turnt single produced by Blue Ranger. The underground club banger is featured on Fat Nick’s brand new mixtape, When The Lean Runs Out, which is available now.
