Friday (March 17) has finally arrived and not only is it St. Patrick’s Day, but it’s also the late Sean Price’s birthday, who would have turned 45 had he not tragically lost his life in 2015. In his honor, we’ve placed his posthumous track, “Definition Of God,” in the DX Digest’s top slot while Rick Ross’ new video for “Trap Trap Trap” featuring Wale and Young Thug follows in the second slot. Next up, Disney and Migos both get parodied with “Belle & Boujee,” Ross disses Birdman in “Idols Become Rivals” and GoldLink is feeling some survivor’s guilt with “Pray Everyday.” Music from CyHi The Prynce, Project Pat and Ali Kulture, 2Eleven, Banish and Big Twins, Mpulse, and Rell Jerv also make the cut.
sean price – “Definition of God”
Although Sean Price has left the earth too soon, his spirit is still being kept alive by his fam at Duck Down Records. The team just shared a new posthumous release, “Definition Of God,” which happens to fall on what would have been Price’s 45th birthday. Produced by Stu Bangas, it’s a harsh reminder of the talent we lost, but thankfully he is immortalized with his music. This track will appear on his first posthumous album Imperius Rex and follows the last offering, “Rap Professor.”
rick ross f. young thug & Wale – “trap trap trap”
Rick Ross is presumably on top of the world right now. After hosting the MTV Woodie Awards Thursday night (March 16), his new album, Rather You Than Me, made its debut early Friday (March 17). To celebrate his accomplishments, Rozay has unveiled the video for “Trap Trap Trap” featuring Wale and Young Thug. Directed by Ryan Snyder, the video’s cinematic approach makes trapping look easy.
Migos (Parody) – “belle & Boujee”
Ahead of the release of Disney’s Beauty and The Beast, a few clever employees at Nerdist have turned Migos’ smash hit “Bad and Boujee” into a parody titled “Belle & Boujee,” which puts the female lead of the film in the role of a “YRP (Young Rich Princess)” and a tea cup rapping Lil Uzi Vert’s verse.
Rick ross – “idols become rivals”
Rick Ross made good on his promise and delivered his ninth studio album, Rather You Than Me, early Friday (March 17). The one track garnering the most attention, of course, is the Birdman diss track, “Idols Become Rivals.” Beginning with a rant from comedian Chris Rock, Ross spits lines like, “I used to see you niggas on my TV screen/And wondered what was life like, was it all a dream?/And then I met you out on LiveNation dates/Came to the realization that your watch was fake.”
goldlink – “pray everyday (Survivor’s Guilt)”
Ahead of his upcoming album, At What Cost, GoldLink has shared another piece of the project in the form of “Pray Everyday (Survivor’s Guilt).” The song follows “Crew” featuring Shy Glizzy and serves as a thorough warm-up for his new project, which is scheduled to arrive March 24. Pre-order it here.
cyhi the prynce – “down (Remix)”
After sharing his video for “Nu Africa,” CyHi The Prynce makes the swift return with his next single, “Down (Remix).” The 22-year-old Atlanta MC is preparing to drop a new project, No Dope On Sundays, and the Jeremy Lloyd-produced track is another sample of what’s to come.
2eleven – “trick me off the streets”
Filmed in Inglewood, California, 2Eleven’s new video for “Trick Me Off The Streets” puts the West Coast rapper in a familiar environment as he showcases his street savvy demeanor in the ‘hood he’s known to call home for so many years. The video comes ahead of his upcoming behind-the-scenes series “Tales Of A Hustler” with appearances from Freddie Gibbs, Casey Veggies, Philthy Rich, G Perico, 1500 Or Nothing and Cargo.
Project pat f. Ali Kulture – “Y.B.G.M.”
O.G. Southern rapper Project Pat has dropped another new track, “Y.B.G.M.,” which is short for “You Be Gettin’ Mad.” Aided by Ali Kulture, the song touches on perseverance against all odds and is dubbed as “a dedication for a better tomorrow and a celebration of life,” according to the press release.
banish f. big twins & Agallah – “Paying you a visit”
Produced by Digital Martyrs, Banish’s “Paying You A Visit” also finds Big Twins and Agallah throwing in their two cents. With a mission to execute nothing but that raw, golden era Hip Hop sound, it’s something they have effortlessly accomplished.
MPulse – “Turning tables”
Mpulse is back again for another installment of his “52 Week” series. This week, Mpulse takes the optimistic approach in an attempt to uplift everybody from the average joe working a 9-to-5 to the dreamers trying to achieve the seemingly impossible. This marks week 28 out of 52 for Mpulse’s “52 Weeks” music campaign, where he plans to release new music every week for a year.
rell jerv – “either way”
Produced by BankRollGotIt, Rell Jerv’s “Either Way” was inspired by the facade people create within the music industry. The video creates a concept of a young man getting caught up in living beyond his means to impress people. Upon closer observation, however, the man is sinking and loses everything all at once.
