Today Gucci Mane turned 35. Unfortunately, he probably won't be able to celebrate in proper fashion, because he's still currently behind bars. Two men who came up in the wake of Gucci's towering presence, Young Thug and Metro Boomin, have shared a tribute track called "Free Gucci" under their joint Metro Thuggin title. With a chorus proclaiming "everything Gucci" and artwork showing GuWop's first Instagram post after he got out prison the last time, this is the perfect tribute track. Quotable Lyrics
It's not every day that Metro Boomin' offers up a straight-up instrumental without a feature attached. The producer has been working with just about everybody in the Atlanta rap scene, and recently produced Future's entire Monster mixtape.
Two-9 Feat. Wiz Khalifa & Ty Dolla $ign
Next week, Ear Drummers signees Two-9 will drop off their mixtape B4FRVR, and today they've got just the thing to get us all hype for it: a Metro Boomin-produced track with two key Taylor Gang features. "Full House" stars the ATL crew's sub-group Retro Su$h! (consisting of Jace and Ceej) alongside Ty Dolla $ign and Wiz Khalifa.
Zach Farlow Feat. Trae Tha Truth
Zach Farlow makes his second appearance on HNHH this week with another new leak, "I Knew" featuring Trae Tha Truth. The Tennessee native who currently resides in Atlanta popped up two days ago with Rich Homie Quan on "Low," and today he's back with that Atlanta sound on "I Knew." We can thank Metro Boomin' for the dope beat, while Zach Farlow does his high-pitched (and sometimes off pitch) flow.
Last night, Travis Scott announced that he’s hitting the road with Young Thug and Metro Boomin as part of the "Rodeo" Tour starting in March. To celebrate, Thugger and Metro decided to come through and drop off two new leaks for us tonight, this one being “Warrior”.
Yesterday, it was announced that Young Thug and Metro Boomin would be joining Travi$ Scott on his nationwide "Rodeo" tour, and now the ATL duo have shared another cut from their long-awaited Metro Thuggin project. This one's called "Speed Racer."
2 Chainz Feat. Skooly
A few minutes ago, 2 Chainz and his T.R.U. (The Real University) crewmates Skooly, Bankroll Fresh, Cap 1 and Short Dawg dropped off their TRU Jack City tape, which features 17 dope tracks produced by a who's-who of dope ATL producers. "Foreign," a highlight from the tape, stars two of the best in the biz, Zaytoven and Metro Boomin.
DJ Scream Feat. FAT TREL, Young Dolph & Project Pat
DJ Scream knows how to break records, and as a result, he knows how to put one together. We've seen him assemble crew records before, always taking the chemistry of the rappers involved into account, and providing the right production for the collab. Most recently, he brought the aggressive quartet of Que, Gunplay, Waka Flocka , and Tracy T together for "Always", and today he's supplied a similarly effective record.
Like A Hott Boyy
Kid Ink Feat. Young Thug & Bricc Baby
By citing Lil Wayne as his first-, second- and third-favorite rapper and basing an entire verse in Rich Gang's "I Got" off of Wayne's iconic "Oops, I meant..." lyric structure, Young Thug had already proven himself to be a Weezy devotee long before "Take Kare" dropped. Now, he's back with another Wayne homage, this time coming in the hook of Kid Ink's new track "Like A Hott Boyy." Accompanied by MPA Shitro (formerly known as Shitty Montana, billed as Bricc Baby Shitro) and a beat from Metro Boomin and DJ Spinz, Thug and Ink pay tribute to Wayne's first group.
Want Some More
Nicki Minaj's The Pinkprint hit retailers, both online and physical, today, and with that we received an album stream via everyone's favorite Spotify. If you don't fuck with Spotify, here's one of the album records liberated by producer Zaytoven, with co-production from Metro Boomin, and it's quite the banger.
Around The World
Rich Homie Quan
At several points during "Lifestyle," Young Thug uses his *Quan voice* to recite some lines. Now, on his new song "Around The World," Rich Homie Quan gets the chance to flex his "Thug voice," reciting his Rich Gang's teammate's Metro Boomin DJ tag ("Metro Boomin want some more, nigga") with gusto before the actual one drops. The track, taken from Musikfene, DJ Genius and 3rdy Baby's upcoming tape Sour Diesel 17, has Quan listing off all of the new places he's been.
Neighborhood Drug Dealer
From the onslaught of lead single "Elvis Presley Boulevard," Rick Ross' Hood Billionaire is sounding quite a bit more muscular than this year's earlier Mastermind project, just like the slimmed-down Rozay himself. While the MMG honcho has all the pear to thank, "Neighborhood Drug Dealer," his latest single, gets its ripped physique from Metro Boomin, who supplies the track with a fittingly booming soundscape.
Trap Still Jumpin
Rich The Kid
Migos and Rich The Kid's Streets On Lock series is still going strong after three releases to date, and a fourth is on its way. So far, we've gotten a few tracks each from Migos and RTK, and now the latter drops a new track that's co-produced by Metro Boomin and Murda.
Break The Rules
Future recently dropped off the crazy mansion party visuals for his lead single and title track off his upcoming Monster mixtape, and today he lets us hear a second leak off the upcoming free project.
Rich Homie Quan
Earlier today Metro Boomin and Rich Homie Quan unveiled their new music video for "Too Short," and now he's taken to his Soundcloud to let the song go for free download if the fans want it. The producer says that this record will not appear on his upcoming album 20 & Boomin, it's just something for the streets. Can you fuck with it?
Curtis Williams Feat. Wiz Khalifa & Jace
Curtis Williams is quickly becoming one of the hottest artists in Atlanta. Tomorrow, the Two-9 member will release his tape Danco James, and we've got a huge record from it to share with you today. "Shenanigans" was produced by Metro Boomin and features Wiz Khalifa and Two-9's own Jace.
My Bitches Get Money
Young Thug Feat. Gucci Mane
By this point, it's become clear that the material coming from Young Thug's sequels to 1017 Thug isn't so much new as it is Gucci Mane's personal stash of recordings from Brick Squad sessions. With that being said, the newest sample from the forthcoming 1017 Thug 3 mixtape sounds like it could have been recorded today. Thug takes on a futuristic Metro Boomin beat, which sounds like it easily could have come off their upcoming project, Metro Thuggin.
Travi$ Scott Feat. Young Thug
A couple days ago we caught a studio session between Travi$ Scott and Metro Boomin where the two producers were working on a track called “SkyFall”. Well with Travi$ releasing his new album, Days Before Rodeo, for free on Monday night, we finally get to hear the final outcome of that Young Thug-featured banger, and it doesn’t disappoint.
We recently found out that Future is working on his next project, rumored to be titled Evol (which stands for "Love" backwards). After having teased us throughout social media this past week, Future finally decides to share the project's first single titled “Monster”.
Metro Boomin Feat. Future & Young Thug
Producer Metro Boomin is currently working on a couple of projects at the moment, with a Young Thug featured project on the way, as well as his own 20 And Boomin album too. Tonight, the ATL hitmaker decides to share a new single off the latter project titled “Chanel Vintage”, featuring fellow ATLien's Future and Young Thug.
