On Tuesday, Johnny May Cash will drop his new tape entitled My Last Days, and today he gets us hype for the project in the most convincing way possible: sharing a new, Young Chop-produced heater. This one's called "Sexy Ladies," and it comes along with a suitably steamy video. Coming out in favor of turning up, and in opposition to turning down, Johnny inhabits the watery soundscape provided by Chop with ease. The song is pretty poppy in the vein of some of Lil Durk's finest tunes, and fits alongside drill's happier tracks nicely.

Clad in a Miami Heat warmup jacket, Reese raps in front of a candlelit shrine and in a dark alley. The Young Chop beat is hard as ever, using synths and trap hi-hats to make "Irrelevant" a very enjoyable drill track.
