Anyone who follows southern hip-hop knows that, when it comes to laying down some solid production, few are as consistent as Don Cannon. Remember Jeezy's "Circulate"? Or Luda's "Undisputed"? You can thank Cannon for those two. (He also co-produced with 88-Keys & Kanye West for Pusha T's "Numbers On The Boards".)
It looks like DJ Drama is gearing up for a new album, as he sends us over a new single to premiere this afternoon. The lead single from his upcoming effort, "Right Back," enlists Young Thug for the hook, and Rich Homie Quan and Jeezy for verses.
Although he'll be featured (hopefully heavily) on the upcoming Rich Gang mixtape, Rich Homie Quan doesn't seem to be working on any solo projects at the moment. That being said, 2014 hasn't been hurting for RHQ tracks, as the ATLien's dropped one-offs at a fairly consistent rate this year.
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.
With collaborations like "Lifestyle," "I Got It" and Travi$ Scott's "Mamacita" under their belts, Rich Homie Quan and Young Thug have proven to be quite the duo of "singin' ass rappers." Today, the two ATLiens return with a track entitled "Pull Up."
Earlier this year, Propain shared a track called "2 Rounds" that paired him with Rich Homie Quan over a crunchy trap beat. Now Lousiana's Kevin Gates has hopped on a remix on the same day he shared his solo track "John Gotti."
Just a few days ago, we got a brand new track from Rich Homie Quan in the form of the "Walk Thru" video, which also featured Problem, and now he's returned with another. "No Alibi" features fellow ATLien PeeWee Longway and is slightly less soulful, but a good deal more turnt, than the track that precedes it.
Rich Homie Quan and Young Thug announced a joint mixtape earlier this year, but we haven't heard about it in a minute. Meanwhile, the duo took the reins on the first single from the upcoming Rich Gang album, which Birdman recently revealed would contain plenty of tracks from the two warblers.
Last month we were given "New Atlanta", a re-vamped version of Ludacris and Jermaine Dupri's immortal "Welcome To Atlanta", with some of the most exciting new artists from the scene (Young Thug, Rich Homie Quan, and Migos) taking the reigns.
In the wake of the release of Drake's "0 To 100," we've seen Guordan Banks, Meek Mill, Vado, Joell Ortiz, Lil Mouse, Skeme, G-Unit and Ransom all try their hands at rapping over the song's indelible Boi-1da beat.
Outside of his recent XXL features (the group cypher & freestyle), Rich Homie Quan has been relatively quiet lately, partially due to being hospitalized last month. But tonight, we find a new Rich Homie Quan song, titled “Three Words”, surface its way onto the internet.
