Memphis rapper Snootie Wild has been relatively quiet since he released his Ain't No Stoppin' Me mixtape in May 2015. He's been touring heavily and putting in work on his debut album with Yo Gotti, Slim Thug, and other prominent figures of southern rap. Today, he debuts his new single "Beetlejuise" in an HNHH premiere.
As Snootie told HNHH, beetlejuise "most definitely" a slang term for lean. At one point, the song contained an actual chopped-up sample from Danny Elfman's soundtrack to the 1988 Tim Burton film "Beetle Juice." The gothic string influence lingers still in the final iteration.
