Lightshow and Wale make that DMV connection on “Your Side, My Side.”

Lightshow is one of the hottest emerging acts out of the DMV right now. One of his first formal introductions to the game was back in 2012 when Wale recruited Lightshow for his tape Folarin. After nearly seven years, they’ve linked up for brand new cut together titled, “Your Side, My Side.” Their latest collaboration is a song that puts on for the DMV, an area the two hail from. With production from Mike Hector and Dez Wright, the two deliver another tight collaboration.

“Lightshow is somebody who supports the culture from back home from all aspects: DC, Maryland, and Virginia. This song makes the most sense for what I’m trying to do, for what he’s trying to do and you can best believe that me and Lightshow are about to have 100 more of these, so get ready this summer,” Wale said about the collab.

Quotable Lyrics
Tighten up, I ain’t lightenin’ up
Them dark days been brightenin’ up
Know a lot of y’all thought they wouldn’t
Ahaaa, n***a lightenin’ struck

DJ Mustard aligns some heavy-hitters for his new single.

Mustard’s “Pure Water” continues to blaze a trail across the Billboard charts, keeping the Migos‘ collective presence strong despite a hiatus of sorts. Now, with his upcoming album in the pipeline, Mustard has officially delivered his new single “100 Bands,” with a truly star-studded lineup of featured guests. The track features YG21 SavageMeek Mill, and Quavo, and looks to arrive alongside an elaborate and cinematic visual. Case in point, Mustard’s announcement trailer below, which provides our first glimpse at the visuals to come upon its widespread release tomorrow.

After discovering an exotic car amidst a flaming desert wreckage, Mustard peels off to the dulcet tones of Quavo. For the most part, the Migos rapper appears to be keeping comfortably within his wheelhouse, bringing his signature flavor as he repeats the track’s namesake. Instrumentally, “100 Bands” is highly percussive, with racing hi-hats dominating the mix. “10 bands in the right hand,” boasts Quavo. “10 bands, 10 bands in my left hand, make her best friend be her hypeman,” he raps, as Mustard’s drag-racing intensifies.

The track is currently out in select international markets, with the North American release coming at midnight. To those who have heard the track, who do you think had the best verse?
