Ride Of Your Life
Covering Complex today wasn't enough for Tinashe, so she's decided to drop another song from her upcoming sophomore album, JOYRIDE.
It's been ten days since our last Chief Keef leak, "Run Up," so it's about time for another Keef cut to hit the web. This one is a Metro Boomin and DJ Spinz-produced joint, "Too Turnt," otherwise known as "TT." The record finds Keef chanting that he's "TT," naming all the ladies and/or drugs he's surrounded by. We're unsure where this song will land, as Keef has a few projects in the work.
Yesterday, DJ Esco was the first to hint at the possibility of a new Future mixtape, as he shared this clip via Twitter. The video shows Esco and Metro capturing some rare studio vibes while putting the finishing touches on "Purple Reign," which, as we've come to discover, provides a fitting finale to the mixtape from which it takes its name.
Metro Boomin and Southside have become two of Future's most important collaborators over the last year. Metro has overseen much of Future's work over his recent creative burst, and has also sculpted his sound by contributing his impossibly heavy instrumentals to the rapper's many projects. Meanwhile, Southside is partially responsible for bringing the 56 Nights sound to Future, beginning with the influential "Commas" beat back in 2014 (DJ Spinz recently told us about how that particular hit came together).
Nyck Caution Feat. Joey Bada$$
We hadn't heard too much from Pro Era since Kirk Knight dropped off his excellent debut album in October. That changed today, though, and it seems the label's primary focus early into 2016 is another wildly talented Brooklyn spitter by the name of Nyck Caution. Caution suddenly dropped off three tracks today, though this one, "What's Understood," featuring Joey Badmon and produced by Metro Boomin, is, of course, the biggest.
Make A Lot
Young Thug and Metro Boomin had a brief feud that unfortunately took place over the very public space of Twitter, but the two have since worked things out, and once again, it seems Metro Thuggin may be a possibility. Another new track from the two collaborators has surfaced today, but there's no way of knowing when it dates from or whether it's intended for their long-awaited project.
Get 2 Bussin
G Herbo Feat. Lil Bibby
This morning G Herbo shared a fresh track called "Get 2 Bussin" with his fellow Chicagoan Lil Bibby, their first collab since "Don't Worry" off Herb's recent mixtape Ballin Like I'm Kobe.
We had to highlight one more cut off Sosa's new mixtape, Finally Rollin 2, which is proving to have good replay value. Much of the tape, including the Zaytoven-produced "Foes," has a throwback sound to it, so "Jumanji," produced by young Metro and Sonny Digital, might be the track with the most potential to blow up. Listen to the No DJ version of "Jumanji," courtesy of Metro Boomin.
Where Ya At
Tonight, Chief Keef made good on his promise to drop his new mixtape, Finally Rollin 2. The tape finds Sosa zoned-in on his freestyle game, spitting over almost exclusively Atlanta productions. Most of these, in fact, are throwbacks from '00s tracks from OGs like Gucci Mane and Jeezy, but he also went in over some of today's hottest beats, including Metro Boomin's "Where Ya At," Future's Drake-featuring single off DS2.
Aww Man (Freestyle)
Currently touring throughout Europe, Kid Ink like what he heard on Lil Bibby's single "Aww Man" featuring Future so much that he decided to flip it with a remix of his own. You can't blame him -- this Metro Boomin beat is enticing. Kid Ink keeps the Future hook intact, letting Fewtch open things up before spitting a verse himself and letting the hook ride out.
Young Thug & Metro Boomin have been making headlines this week for going at each other on twitter, leaving us to believe their highly anticipated Metro Thuggin project wasn’t going to see the light of day anymore. However, it turns out the “beef” was all one big troll job to promote their new single “Hercules,” which just dropped tonight and will see life on the duo's upcoming project, Metro Thuggin.
Blue Or Red
More ferocious material from Waka Flocka. As there's no release date in sight for his already finished album, Flockaveli 2, Flocka has decided to bypass his label, Atlantic, and drop Flockaveli 1.5, which will be a "free album." He comes through today with the first song off the free release, which will be out in a week, on November 19. "Blue or Red" is a banger produced by two of ATL's finest: Southside and Metro Boomin.
When he’s not busy conducting your favorite rapper’s instrumentals, 808 Mafia’s Southside has been working on his wordplay as of lately, and releasing new music under the alias Young Sizzle. After dropping off the track “Winning 3” a few weeks back, the ATL hitmaker is back with another one for us called “Sand Man,” which is produced by non-other than Metro Boomin.
G Herbo Feat. Joey Bada$$
A bout a month ago, G Herbo a.k.a. The Artist Formerly Known As Lil Herb posted a couple Instagram shots of him in the studio with one Joey Bada$$. They were met with intrigue and confusion as Herb and Joey tend to ride in different lanes, but being the talented individuals that they are, they form a potent duo regardless. As it turns out, they were cooking up "Lord Knows," a Metro Boomin production, thus forming a modern-day CHI-NYC-ATL Bermuda Triangle. Shoutout to the Red Bull Sound Select program for bringing these gentlemen together.
Aww Man (Radio Rip)
Lil Bibby Feat. Future
On November 27, Lil Bibby will be releasing the third installment in his Free Crack mixtape series, but before he does so he’s got some promoting to do first. Kicking off the project’s campaign Tuesday night, Bibby decided to give Chicago’s Power 92.3 radio station the green light to premiere the first offering from the tape called “Aww Man” featuring the man of the hour, Future Hendrix.
Thas What I Do
Zach Farlow is getting ready to release a new mixtape soon called The Great Escape 2, and tonight we’re treated to the latest offering it called “Thas What I Do.”
Young Scooter Feat. Future
Young Scooter came out of nowhere tonight and released the sequel to his 2012 effort Married To The Streets. Laced with 14 tracks in total, the follow up to this year’s Juggathon mixtape features guest appearances from the likes of Future, Young Thug, Young Buck, Waka Flocka, and many more.
Que continues to keep it moving. After hitting us with “Fit In” & the Sonny Digital-produced cut “Back” recently, The ATL rapper is back today with another new track for the fans, this time linking up with #WATTBA hit-producer Metro Boomin for “Rodeo Shoppin.” Co-produced by DJ Spinz, the track serves as the first offering off Que’s upcoming I Am Que project, which is dropping soon. Here’s what Que had to say about his upcoming body of work,
London on da Track and Wheezy, two of Thugger's closest collaborators, took up about half of the beats Slime Season 2, but the other producers are nothing to scoff at. In terms of placements -- largely because of their close work with Future -- no one has had a bigger year than either Metro Boomin or Southside. Both ATL hitmakers had a beat each on SS1 and they return to SS2 on the same track: "All Over."
You knew OVO Sound Radio would come with some Halloween treats tonight, and, indeed, one of those included a surprise set from grime emcee Skepta, who dropped three new remixes during his mix. The most noteworthy is of the biggest track off What a Time to Be Alive, last month's joint album between Future and Drake, who recently tattooed the initials of Skepta's Boy Better Know crew on his left shoulder.
