RICH THE KID -“THAT’S TUFF” FEAT. QUAVO

Multiplatinum rapper Rich The Kid releases his new single “That’s Tuff” feat. Quavo today. This track marks the rapper’s first release with Republic Records.

Listen to “That’s Tuff” feat. Quavo: HERE

Rich The Kid and Migos star Quavo lock into hard-hitting, hilarious and hypnotic bars over a melodically Atlanta trap sound, serving as a much-needed reunion between the two.

Rich The Kid is returning with his new release with his new partner label Republic Records and is looking toward 2020 with his greatest music yet. In 2017 Rich The Kid delivered his intoxicating “New Freezer” with Kendrick Lamar. The RIAA double Platinum track was followed by the triple Platinum colossal single “Plug Walk” in 2018. At this point, Rich The Kid had merely hit his stride after years of grinding, making records and breaking other acts like the world famous Migos and Famous Dex. Rich’s fame was growing as both a star rapper and label entrepreneur.  The World Is Yours debuted in 2018, fueled by the aforementioned “New Freezer” and “Plug Walk.” Titled as a clear nod to Nas, the project showcased how Rich The Kid navigated seamlessly through crafting bangers that not only could live in a club, but also through car radios and AirPods. He followed with The World Is Yours 2 and is now ready to bring the world his new music.

NUE – DREAMCAST

Today, rapper NUE returns with new single “Dreamcast” produced by Lex Luger [Prod credits include Lil Yatchy, Quavo, Waka Flocka etc.]. True to his genre bending approach to hip-hop and  alternative twist to R&B, “Dreamcast” is the perfect vibe. In Nue’s words, “It’s what you put on when you’re lit at 2 AM and not ready for your night to be over. You just feel the energy — it hits right from the jump and keeps up throughout the song.”

2 Chainz X Lebron James Collab

2 CHAINZ X LEBRON JAMES SHARE SECOND TRAILER FOR ‘RAP OR GO TO THE LEAGUE’ INTERVIEW

WATCH THE TRAILER HERE

2 CHAINZ’ 5th  STUDIO ALBUM ‘RAP OR GO TO THE LEAGUE’ – A&R’d BY LEBRON JAMES – SET FOR MARCH 1ST RELEASE VIA DEF JAM RECORDINGS

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: WATCH THE FIRST TRAILER FOR THE 2 CHAINZ X LEBRON

2 Chainz, the multi-platinum, Grammy Award®-winning MC and “One of the Very Best Rappers Alive” (Noisey), confirms his highly anticipated fifth studio album, RAP OR GO TO THE LEAGUE, A&R’d by LeBron James, is set for a March 1st release via Def Jam Recordings.

The countdown to March 1st is officially on, as Apple Music rolls out the first two trailers for 2 Chainz x LeBron James RAP OR GO TO THE LEAGUE, an exclusive in-depth conversation between two of the biggest titans in their respective fields.  As long time friends and fans of one another, 2 Chainz and LeBron represent the true intersection of music and sports.

WATCH THE SECOND TRAILER HERE: @2Chainz

The title RAP OR GO TO THE LEAGUE challenges the notion that the only way out of the inner city is either to become a rapper or a ball player. (In fact, 2 Chainz has done both, earning a full ride to college for basketball and graduating at the top of his class, and becoming a superstar rapper.) Chainz’ new album – easily his most personal, most lyrical, most soulful to date – flips that trope on its head, celebrating black excellence and focusing on the power of education and entrepreneurship.

The eagerly awaited RAP OR GO TO THE LEAGUE is Chainz’ first official new long-player since his platinum #1 release of 2017, Pretty Girls Like Trap Music. That LP has netted over 2 billion streams after spinning off four consecutive multi-platinum hits: “4 AM” featuring Travis Scott; “It’s A Vibe” featuring Ty Dolla $ign, Trey Songz and Jhene Aiko; “Big Amount” featuring Drake, and “Good Drank” featuring Quavo and Gucci Mane.

2 Chainz released a pair of well-received EPs in 2018: The surprise, unannounced The Play Don’t Care Who Makes It  (February) contained the gold-selling viral

track, “Proud” featuring YG and Offset, which has over 100 million streams to date. “The ultimate embodiment of Atlanta rap,” raved Pitchfork in its extended-length review, “he’s old enough to have witnessed the forging of its building blocks but maintains the youthful spirit of an ever-changing genre.” 2 Chainz returned with Hot Wings Are A Girl’s Best Friend in November. The brand-new two-song bundle included “Hot Wings” and “Girl’s Best Friend.” The upcoming new album will also contain Chainz’  2018 gold single, “Bigger Than You” (featuring Drake and Quavo) whose videos have amassed over 55 million combined YouTube views to date.

In addition to music, 2 Chainz’ cultural influence continues to grow. Earlier this month, he starred alongside Adam Scott in “the world’s first Super Bowl commercial you can expense” for Expensify. Chainz’ wildly popular TV show Most Expensivest on VICELAND moves into its third season in 2019 with 20 new episodes (season premiere TBA); view the series trailer HERE. Chainz’ sneaker collaboration with Versace called “Chain Reaction” hit stores in the spring 2018, and was their most popular shoe of the year. In October, 2 Chainz launched his own cannabis brand, GAS Cannabis Co. available now throughout California HERE.

ABOUT 2 CHAINZ

Following his run as a founding member of Def Jam duo Playaz Circle from his native Atlanta, 2 Chainz’ name was on everyone’s lips in 2012, when he stole a verse on “Mercy,” fellow Def Jam artist Kanye West/G.O.O.D. Music’s RIAA triple-platinum #1 R&B/#1 Rap hit (from Cruel Summer). In August 2012, Chainz arrived as a Def Jam solo artist with Based On A T.R.U. Story, his debut album.  B.O.A.T.S. entered Soundscan at #1 and was certified RIAA gold. Its success was fueled by the RIAA platinum #1 “No Lie” featuring Drake, the double-platinum “Birthday Song” featuring Kanye West, and double-platinum “I’m Different.”  “Mercy” was subsequently a Grammy® nominee for Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance, while B.O.A.T.S.was nominated for Best Rap Album. Chainz’ dominance was extended when the sequel, B.O.A.T.S. II: Me Time entered the Soundscan hip-hop chart at #1 in September 2013, and spun off the RIAA gold single, “Feds Watching” featuring Pharrell.

In 2016, Chainz brought it back to his essence with a series of mixtapes that dominated the streets: Felt Like Cappin, Daniel Son; Necklace Don, and Hibachi For Lunch.  Also in 2016, he released the lauded collaborative album ColleGrove with New Orleans hip-hop luminary Lil Wayne.  Critics agreed that 2 Chainz conquered 2016, with the New York Times proclaiming “all hail our greatest punchline rapper, 2 Chainz.”  The year was capped off with his first Grammy Award, Best Rap Performance for his verse on Chance The Rapper’s hit song “No Problem.”

With momentum on his side, 2 Chainz released his first solo album since 2013: Pretty Girls Like Trap Music (June 2017) was accompanied by a 35-city tour of North America through September. Chainz’ TV appearances included visits with Jimmy Kimmel (HERE), Jimmy Fallon (HERE), and Trevor Noah (HERE).  2018 brought the EP releases The Play Don’t Care Who Makes It (February, with the RIAA gold “Proud” featuring YG and Offset), and Hot Wings Are A Girl’s Best Friend (November), pointing the way to the release of Chainz’ fourth solo album, RAP OR GO TO THE LEAGUE on March 1, 2019. Chainz’ impact on popular culture encompasses not only music but his Most Expensivest cable tv series on VICELAND, his “Chain Reaction” sneaker collaboration with Versace, his GAS Cannabis Co. brand, and his Expensify videos with Adam Scott. TheRinger.com was inspired to write: “Forget Mount Rushmore – 2 Chainz deserves his own national monument. This year dude is top five humans of all time.”

Lil Yachty’s Nuthin’ 2 Prove

Lil Yachty announced that his forthcoming album Nuthin 2 Prove will be released on October 19. This will be his follow up project since Birthday Mix 3, and his Lil Boat 2 mixtape, which featured a slew of artists from Ugly God, 2 Chainz, Quavo, PnB Rock, Offset, Lil Pump, Trippie Redd, to Lil Baby and more. Additionally, this comes after Lil Yachty’s single “Who Want The Smoke?” which features Offset and Cardi B.

Recently Lil Yachty has been filming his role for How High 2. Lil Yachty plays Roger, an entrepreneur and the younger brother of one of the protagonists from the original film. Per the official description by MTV, Roger and his friend go on a magical hash-fueled journey to fund their on-demand munchies delivery start-up. This past summer he made his big screen debut as the voice of Green Lantern in Teen Titans Go! To The Movies. Lil Yachty also recently collaborated with Donny Osmond for Chef Boyardee’s Start The Par-dee jingle.

Lil Yachty, aka Lil Boat, aka “King of the Youth” is a 21-year old Atlanta native, a Grammy-nominated singer, rapper, producer, creative designer, branding genius and fashion icon who smashed onto the scene two years ago. Since then he accumulated nearly 3 billion streams, found himself on the covers of Paper and FADER magazines, as well as landing the cover of The New York Times Men’s Style section and a XXL Freshman cover.

It’s commonplace for young rap stars to claim that they’ve transcended hip-hop; it’s rarer for them to actually do it. Yachty does.” – THE NEW YORKER

Besides the actual sun, there is no source of joy in the world right now brighter and more sustaining than Lil Yachty. So basically, the moral of the story is: cancel all your plans and stay at home, and instead just understand that the Goodest Night has now been had, by one Lil Boat, Esq. You will never have as good a night as Lil Yachty. Apologies.” – NOISEY

Lil Yachty has created an alternate universe in which traditional narratives of rap excess are reframed as fantastical stories. He has mainlined Gucci Mane’s vocal quirk a penchant for odd rhyme structures cloaked in unlikely melodies.” -THE NEW YORK TIMES

Lil Yachty is probably going to change the world.” – ROLLING STONE

“Yachty is the master of our joy.” -PITCHFORK
