L.A.-based producer Felix Snow has worked with the likes of Young Thug, SZA, and Ro Ransom in the past, but on his latest release, he's teamed with Milwaukee rapper Carti Bankx. Snow pairs a childlike chime riff with heavy sub-bass, old-school telephone rings and ascending sirens, giving Bankx a busy background for his bellowed auto-tune. "Turn up the radio / I wanna see you move, girl," he croons, sounding equally romantic and sedated: "Ain't nobody do it like us / We just wanna live young and wild and do drugs / Lost in the city / I've been lost in the cup / Lost in the city / I've been lost in your love." Later he cites the immortal words of Chief Keef, nodding to the influence the Chicago rapper has had on the SoundCloud generation: "Pop another one / I just hate being sober."
The song was released on Snow's SoundCloud, though it's not clear if it's set to appear on any particular project. The two artists make a good team and are hopefully working on new music in the near future.
Bankx recently released a mixtape called Young & Heartlesss. “I’ve been through a lot this past year, learned a lot, experienced a lot, heartbreak, stages of depression, people hating,” he told Billboard of the project. "Never did I let anything get to me, nor break me... I learned not to drown in my emotions, but to put it in the music."
You can listen to Carti Bankx' new project Young & Heartless on his SoundCloud.

Can't nobody do it like us
We just wanna live wild and free
And do drugs
Lost in the city
I've been lost in the cup
Lost in the city
I've been lost in your love
Finally I can move how I wanna
I can be what you need when it's over
I just need what you need
So come over
Pop another one
I just hate being sober
