Birdman & Juvenile “Just Another Gangsta”

BIRDMAN & JUVENILE RELEASE NEW ALBUM Just Another Gangsta AVAILABLE TODAY

Available at All Digital Retailers Now

Nodding to the golden age of Cash Money Records, Birdman & Juvenile team up to release their collaborative album J.A.G. at all digital retailers today.

Short for “Just Another Gangster,” both the album title and lead single “J.A.G.” take you back to the bouncy bling era of the label by reuniting legendary Co-Founder and multi-platinum rapper Birdman with Southern luminary and fellow icon Juvenile. The larger-than-life music video already surpassed 4.3 million YouTube/VEVO views, and the song impacted radio in February where it continues rising.

On the track, these two New Orleans titans lock into a lyrical back-and-forth before delivering a chanting refrain over a slick bass line and steady beat. With a whole lot of swag and style. It’s as infectious and icy as anything they’ve ever done together, and it evokes the timeless nature of their chemistry initially honed by way of collaborations from dozens of classic releases.

“J.A.G.” is stacked with bold and big bangers. “Dreams” featuring Choppa showcases more slick Southern flows over acoustic guitar and piano. Choppa brings his own fire to the track as Juvenile turns up with another hummable hook. “Broke” unfolds with street wit and charm, while a bluesy guitar lead gives way to rhyme fireworks on the nostalgic “Back Then.” “From The Bottom” could serve as a mission statement for either Juvenile or Birdman as it documents the come-up to triumph in vivid detail. The album concludes on the hard-hitting and bounce-driven “One Two.”

The entire project sees Birdman and Juvenile rapping with focus and fire that’s always fresh. Additionally, it features production courtesy of Rich Gang in-house team.

Birdman and Juvenile recently engaged a full court press blitz that saw them appearing on multiple television and radio shows. They notably guested on The Wendy Williams Show to perform the title track and speak on the project. Additionally, Juvenile guested on The Breakfast Club, and his appearance racked up a staggering 100K views in under six hours as it approached the 400k mark now.

Rich Homie Quan

Today, multiplatinum and critically applauded Atlanta trailblazer Rich Homie Quan releases his anxiously awaited full-length debut, Rich As In Spirit, in stores and at all digital retailers via RAIS/Motown. It’s available HERE.

Following years of anticipation, countless mixtapes, and numerous multiplatinum singles, the rapper delivers his biggest and boldest body of work to date befitting of a storied reputation as one of Atlanta’s preeminent voices. He introduced the record with the one-two punch of singles, Changed and The Author. Most recently, Quan turned up with more masterful melodies on Understood. Over production from Nard & B, he delivers pensive and powerful bars like “When my teacher was gone, she said I wouldn’t be shit, but see my teacher was wrong

Immediately, the track garnered critical praise. XXL wrote, Understood finds Rich Homie Quan showcasing his melodic flow as he calls out his haters and brags about his riches, while HotNewHipHop said the, Rich As In Spirit album is shaping up to be an impressive drop.

Throughout a staggering 19 tracks, Quan goes as hard as ever when it comes to the hooks and rhymes from the opener Reflecting to the finale Bossman. Upon release, Changed immediately drew acclaim from THE FADER, Billboard, Stereogum, and XXL. To promote the release, he performed the track on MTV’s Total Request Live HERE. Additionally, he got deep on this episode of Complex’s Droppin’ Cash.
Now, Rich As In Spirit not only represents every side of Quan, but also sees him in top form ready to take flight like never before.

No conversation about 21st century hip-hop would be complete without mentioning the impact of Rich Homie Quan. An unbreakable and unbeatable hot streak of mixtapes culminated on 2012’s I Go In On Every Song and Still Going In Reloaded. He literally became a part of the rap lexicon with the gold Type of Way platinum Lifestyle as part of Rich Gang with Young Thug and Birdman, double-platinum smash Flex (Ooh, Ooh, Ooh), which was so ubiquitous it popped up on Dwayne Johnson‘s playlist, and red-hot feature on YG’s triple-platinum My Hitta Last year, the 2017 mixtape Back To The Basics garnered praise from Noisey who reaffirmed, “He’s still very much in the conversation as one of the most exciting MCs in Atlanta.” The Back To The Basics movie used Quan’s engaging narration to link together official videos for six of the mixtape’s songs.

BIRDMAN ‘BEFORE ANYTHANG’ ON APPLE MUSIC

Vaughn Lowery: “What advice would you provide to someone trying to start a label or to become a recording artist?”

Birdman: “Study your craft …. Know your business …. Stay focused, stay humble, always put God first …. Try to start the same way you finished …. Be prepared to die for what you believe in. It’s simple.”

Bryan “Baby/Birdman” Williams was in Los Angeles pushing his new biographical documentary during his birthday. Today, it was released exclusively on Apple Music.

The viewing was held on Thursday, February 15th at NeueHouse – a private community of leading entrepreneurs and creative teams. As we sipped on champagne and awaited the ‘Number 1 Stunna’ to introduce the opening instalment of a three-part series during his birthday, we were constantly reminded by the mere presence of security that we could be in for a ride. Over the last 21 years, Birdman has lead an army of hip hop prodigies, including Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj. For decades, financial rumors and controversy surrounded Cash Money Records and we were hoping to find some answers. The initial episode delves into the CEO’s dark past from losing his mother at an early age to slanging drugs which in the end leads to incarceration. Throughout, we start to understand the attributes of how one becomes one of the most successful rap moguls of our time. His father was a former military man with a pile of small businesses in some of New Orleans’ seedier areas. He constantly hustled to keep his family fed with a roof over their heads. This boy “any means necessary” mentality trickled down onto his youngest child, which eventually contributed to him selling CDs out of his trunk and helming one of the most prolific indie labels in the world, Cash Money Records.

Before Anythang: The Story Behind The Cash Money Records Empire doesn’t disappoint; however, it may leave some leery as it was created by its star, sprinkled with his personal narratives, which could come across as being slightly contrived.

Nevertheless, this piece of work has earned a spot on our ‘360 Watch List,’ especially since we gain an insightful introspective into the life of Birdman.
