That is a 106% increase over the same time span in 2017 and a 725% increase from 2016.

This song is pretty unbelievable. This track features Yung Frown and Jay, rapping about nothing but “Skrt.” This song is filled with weird adlibs and rap lines, but the beat is kind of catchy and there are some gunshots to round out the weirdness of this entire song, even though it contains zero lyrics.
Lil Phag has been gaining a buzz lately, and after hearing this it’s not hard to understand. It’s hard to relate to the lyrics and the chorus: “Lil Phag just f##ked your dad, I got all you b##ches mad cause Lil Phag just f##ked your dad.”
Lil Toe Nail
On this banger, Lil Toe Nail is super pissed off that his girlfriend won’t suck his balls. Not only that, but the chick makes Lil Toe Nail mad that she refuses to have anal sex with him. The chorus on this song is pretty classic: “What the f##k do you mean you don’t wanna suck my nutz? B##ch I don’t give a f##k, I’m trying to bust a nut.”
Lil Happy Lil Sad
Lil Happy Lil Sad is really down on this dreary mumble rap song. Even doing drugs cannot bring Lil Happy Lil Sad out of his depressing funk on “Let Me Die.” In the end, he says he’s so tired of this life, which makes one believe Lil Happy Lil Sad could be suicidal.
Lil House Phone
On this song, Lil House Phone is coming for your pokemon cards, while pistol whipping everyone in site on “Trappin off The House Phone.” The rapper has no cell phone, so he must trap from the phone in his house.
