Apathy Feat. Bun B & Twista
With the possible exception of Chris Webby (jokes), Apathy is the hottest rapper out of Connecticut. Gearing up for the release of his fifth solo album, he comes through today with an impressive single called "Moses." There are a lot of impressive things about this song, actually. The most impressive component is definitely Twista's verse. He certainly doesn't make it easy for Bun B, who has the following verse.
Bitch Get Down
Pimp C Feat. Bun B & 8Ball & MJG
Pimp C and Bun B made up one of the most important duos in rap history, so it's great to here them alongside 8Ball and MJG, yet another iconic southern rap two-piece. The four rappers unite on Pimp's new posthumous single "Bitch Get Down. It features a beat from Mr. Lee, which incorporates his signature style of vocal sampling. It's a fitting place to put Pimp's vocals, making us confident that the upcoming Long Live The Pimp compilation from Mass Appeal will be a proper tribute to the late rapper.
BeatKing Feat. Bun B
Last week, BeatKing unveiled the tracklist and cover art for his upcoming album, 3 Weeks. With two weeks to go, BeatKing follows that up this afternoon with a new album cut, the Bun B-featured "Show It." In addition to Bun B, the album is set to feature Kirko Bangz, Ken Randle, Rico Love, Short Dawg, Rizzoo Rizzoo and more.
Keep On Hustlin
Warren G Feat. Jeezy, Bun B & Nate Dogg
Last month, Warren G shared a track that featured the first posthumous Nate Dogg vocals we've heard in quite some time, the "Our House"-interpolating "My House," and today, he's back with another. Also taken from his upcoming Regulate... G Funk Era II EP, "Keep On Hustlin" features Nate, as well as Jeezy and Bun B.
The IllEST The realEST The trillEST
Machine Gun Kelly Feat. Bun B & Trae Tha Truth
Machine Gun Kelly surprised fans this afternoon with the release of a new mixtape, perhaps aptly-titled given how he chose to release it, Fuck It. Its a compact 10-track offering, with appearances from crew members like Ray Jr, Dub O and Tezo. This is the rapper's first mixtape since Black Flag two years ago, and seeing as he's been a bit quiet on music lately, it's about time.
King Chip Feat. Bun B
King Chip has been pretty absent this year, hopefully quietly prepping his long-awaited album CleveLAfornia. While updates on the album have been few and far between, the L.A. transplant returns today with a new record that features Houston's Bun B. It's a different approach for Chip Tha Rip, who uses auto-tune for the song, which generally has a low-fi feeling. Production comes from J. Hill, who chops up a pretty cool sample and adds in some bass. Are you feeling it?
Statik Selektah Feat. Bun B, Styles P & Sean Price
Statik Selektah is one of those producers who doesn't discriminate when it comes to OGs and newcomers. He's just as likely to work with Joey Bada$$, Action Bronson, or Your Old Droog as he is Eminem or Onyx. His latest record finds him firmly planted in the vet category, as he teams with Sean Price, Styles P, and Bun B. The assemblance of rappers is a pretty good representation of Statik's music in general-- very much rooted in NYC styles, but not afraid to venture outside of them once in a while either.
DJ EFN Feat. Bun B, Jarren Benton, Eric Biddines & Amber Monique
DJ EFN dropped his album today, and if you've yet to check it out, the first thing you'll notice is the varied and impressive list of features. Hailing from Miami, EFN has assembled a cast of rappers from all different scenes to help him create his debut LP.
Black Milk Feat. Bun B
Black Milk is readying his new album, If There's A Hell Below, for release on October 28th. The pre-order is already available, and with that we've received a new collaboration from the Detroit spitter with a dope verse from Southern OG Bun B. "Gold Piece" has those oh so soulful vibes, and in case the storyline wasn't clear enough Black has offered a breakdown:
Statik Selektah Feat. Bun B, Jared Evan & Posdnuos
Statik Selektah is getting ready to drop off his new album, What Goes Around, on August 19th, but before he does so, the NYC producer decides to let go of one last leak for the fans today titled “God Knows“ featuring Bun B, Jared Evan and Posdnuos (of De La Soul).
Electronic DJ and producer, Mimosa, is getting ready to release his new album Future Trill Vol 2, on August 12th, and today’s he’s shared the first single off it titled “Boss Shit” featuring UGK's own Bun B. The track is heavily inspired by EDM and features some heavy bass, & eerie keyboard melody throughout it. While the EDM x Hip-Hop crossover isn’t for everyone, this is pretty dope, especially Bun’s verse.
Three Kings (Remix)
Slim Thug Feat. Bun B
If you've never checked out Slim Thug's debut album, Already Platinum, you're missing out. The largely Neptunes-produced release is packed with classic records, one of which being "Three Kings". Mr. Lee nearly matched Pharrell and Chad on production credits for the album, and he was behind the boards for this track which originally included features from T.I. and Bun B. On this revisitation of the track, Slim and Bun both return to pay tribute to their hometown's team, the Houston Rockets.
Coley Feat. Bun B
Coley is a rising rapper coming out of Philly, who is also a graduate of Georgetown College and went on to found his own label, Revel Music Group with Ruffhouse Records' founder Joe "The Butcher" Nicolo. He's working on releasing his own project via Revel, and managed to grab a Bun B feature for the leak "Alley Oop" thanks to the two's mutual friends. They actually got to perform this cut together at Allen Iverson's recent retirement party in Philadelphia. The two have already shot a music for this record, so keep your eyes peeled for it. What are your thoughts on Coley?
Easy Money (Remix)
Wrekonize Feat. Bun B, Riff Raff & Jackie Chain
Strange music artist Wrekonize originally enlisted Bun B for his track, "Easy Money", and has now recruited southern spitters RiFF RAFF and Jackie Chain for the remix. The song is a part of his #WrekWednesdays series, which finds him releasing new tracks on a weekly basis. Wrek will appear on a few tracks from the upcoming Strange Music compilation, Strangeulation, which will see release in May.
Mobb Deep Feat. Bun B & Juicy J
After hearing “Taking You Off Here” & “Say Something” a few weeks ago, Prodigy and Havoc, bka Mobb Deep, are back with another record off their upcoming album The Infamous Mobb Deep.
Live For Today
Fabolous Feat. Jadakiss, Bun B & Rob Zoe and Anthony King
Two weeks back, we heard a selection from Sean C & LV's upcoming compilation, Loud Dreams Vol. 1. The crew track, "Where's Your Leader" featured contributions from Bun B, Prodigy, Remy Banks & CharlieRED.
Where’s Your Leader?
Bun B Feat. Prodigy, Remy Banks & CharlieRED
Sean C and LV are readying their upcoming Loud Dreams Vol. 1 compilation, which will see release next month, and feature the likes of Fabolous, A$AP Twelvy, Pusha T, Busta Rhymes, Big K.R.I.T., Smoke DZA, Dom Kennedy, A$AP Ferg, Raekwon, Styles P, Tree and more. The comp is sponsored by the Clipse streetwear company, Play Cloths."Where's Your Leader?" is the latest leak from the project, which also sports its share of big features, with Bun B, Prodigy, Remy Banks and CharlieRED filling the roster.
N.O.R.E. Feat. 2 Chainz, Mack Maine, Bun B, Gunplay & CityBoy Dee
N.O.R.E. announced that his Goodbelt Gang would be teaming up for a compilation project, Resource Room, which officially hit iTunes today. The new release rounds up features from Action Bronson, Busta Rhymes, 2 Chainz, Gunplay, Mack Wilds, Troy Ave, Cory Gunz and more.
63rd & Hayes
Naledge Feat. DJ Moondawg & Bun B
Naledge enlists DJ Moondawg from his intro and gets a hook from Bun B on a new leak "63rd & Hayes." The track is off his upcoming mixtape "Brain Power 2" dropping on January 27th. Quotable Lyrics "Now we sittin' in the back of the ride / And I really wanna take a hoe back for the night / It's sun down, it's sun down / Mollys on come-down / It's once in a life time, girl come have some fun now."
Trap Or Die
Jeezy Feat. Bun B & Slick Pulla
Today we're taking you back to when Jeezy was Young Jeezy, with his second mixtape, a Gangsta Grillz presentation Trap Or Die. The 2005 effort really cemented Jeezy as THE trap/street rapper. Apart from the title track, Trap Or Die is also home to the Gucci Mane-featured "Icey" which helped spark the long-time beef between the two Atlanta trap stars.
