gucci mane & 2 chainz- “good drank (live)”
On Monday night’s (February 27) episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the stage was lit with a performance of “Good Drank” from two of Georgia’s finest, Gucci Mane and 2 Chainz. Backed by famed producer Mike Dean, Fonz Bentley, The Roots, and a gospel choir, the pair delivered the Hibachi For Lunch track without a hitch. Watch it above.
kanye west f. the-dream – “Bed yeezy season 5”
Originally co-written by The-Dream for J. Holiday, 2007’s “Bed” is getting an update courtesy of Kanye West, who has retitled it “Bed Yeezy Season 5” on the Soundcloud link. Not surprisingly, it premiered during West’s Yeezy Season 5 fashion show, where it was looped. The track is once again looped here and lasts an unbelievable 17 minutes.
keyshia cole f. french montana & Remy Ma – “you”
After releasing her inner beast on Nicki Minaj with the diss track, “SHETHER,” Remy Ma now jumps on Keyshia Cole’s “You” along with French Montana. With elements of P.M. Dawn’s “Set Adrift On Memory Bliss,” the track offers an R&B-influenced vibe while Remy spits lines like, “I can be a foul bitch/fuck your whole life up,” as the song goes on about infidelity. Montana gets a jab in there with, “A real one hold you down like a real army/But I picked the wrong one/like Steve Harvey.”
juelz Santana f. French montana & Cam’ron- “dip’d in coke”
Expected to arrive on The Get Back mixtape, Juelz Santana’s new single “Dip’d In Coke” finds French Montana and Cam’ron along for the ride. Whether it’s an ode to cocaine or a just a play on words to flex their solidarity as “Coke Boys” is up to the listener, but all three artists easily ride the Harry Fraud and Maaly Raw beat. The forthcoming mixtape should arrive this week.
Fabolous f. lil uzi vert – “goyard bag”
Produced by Lyle LeDuff and Keef Boyd, “Goyard Bag” was initially placed on 2016’s Fab’s Summertime Shootout 2 and received an official release through Def Jam earlier this month. The song, which borrows heavily from Outkast’s 1998 Aquemini track, “Liberation,” now gets a visual, which is directed by Gerard Victor and Spike Jordan.
brother ali – “own light (What Hearts Are For)”
Rhymesayers stalwart Brother Ali finally resurfaced with some new music in the form of a video for “Pen To Paper” on Monday (February 27) and has quickly followed up with “Own Light (What Hearts Are For),” the second offering from his newly announced album, All The Beauty In This Whole Life. In the song, he says he had to “meditate” for awhile, which explains his absence from the indie Hip Hop spotlight. The album is expected on May 5.
DMX – “Thanks erykah badu”
Erykah Badu has been active on her Facebook page as of late, sharing all kinds of videos. After posting an old video of her first open mic performance of “On & On” this week, the Baduizm singer has graced her fans with a video of DMX explaining the impact her music has had on him. The veteran rapper says, “To have met such a genuine artist, I’m blessed.”
Jadakiss & Rrose Rrome- “Ziploc”
RRose RRome is apparently a big fan of The LOX. Currently in rotation on NYC’s Power 105 and Hot 97, RRome’s “Ziploc” single featuring Jadakiss, which samples Nas’ “If I Ruled the World,” gets the Gee Lock-directed video treatment and finds the pair getting wild at the strip club (naturally).
bambu f. killer mike- “Prey’er”
Directed by Filmonita, Bambu’s new video for “Prey’er” comes with a co-sign from Killer Mike, who urges the Los Angeles rapper to to “talk his shit” for “black people, brown people, yellow people, beige people, for poor people, for the working class.” The track serves as the fourth single from Bambu’s album, Prey For the Devil.
que9 f. lil poopy- “buzzin'”
According to their press release, Que9 and Lil Poopy are “the hottest two 13-year-old rappers in the country,” and have teamed up for the single “Buzzin’.” Produced by Orlando, Florida’s The Crew, the song is evidence of their commitment to the craft. Lil Poopy, best known for his appearance on Jermaine Dupri’s The Rap Game, adds bars about his young boy swag while Que9 has no problem holding it down.
