Wiz Khalifa Sings Sweet Melodies On “Smoke Screen” With Bootsyano

Wiz Khalifa

Wiz Khalifa

Wiz Khalifa releases a new song from his upcoming mixtape “Big Pimpin,” titled “Smoke Screen.”

When Wiz Khalifa releases his new mixtape, he guarantees that weed sales will spike. As he continues working on his highly-anticipated Big Pimpin project, the stoner rapper just dropped a brand new single called “Smoke Screen” with Bootsyano.

Without any time allocated to the player haters, Wiz and Bootsyano focus solely on the hustle in front of them. Their new collaborative single starts off with Wiz’s hypnotic hook, complete with the right amount of vocal delay to keep us floating. Bootsyano makes his introduction in the first verse, leaving the second verse for the Taylor Gang general to spit bars about watching a movie with Snoop Dogg, strategizing his next moves, and, of course, weed.

The song premiered via DatPiff. Big Pimpin will be out soon from Wiz Khalifa. Stay tuned!

Quotable Lyrics:

If they only knew what that thing do
See a million dollars every time I think of you
Take my business to the top, dream come true
Want me to drop the top, no clouds, sky blue

Koffee Drops The Perfect Quarantine Love Song With “Lockdown”

Koffee

Koffee

After months of being on lockdown and social distancing due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Koffee gives the world a very relatable anthem about living it up to the fullest after this quarantine eases up.

It goes without saying that many of us are completely over this global quarantine. As it looks like we may be approaching better days in the near future — keep those masks on, folks! — GRAMMY-winning reggae sensation Koffee just dropped a chune on us that definitely looks towards the light at the end of this COVID-19 tunnel.

“Lockdown” is pretty much just as described, with Koffee lamenting soulfully about where we’ll go, what we’ll do and who we’ll be loving once  the social distancing comes to an end. The accompanying music video makes for a bit of controversy — a block party where no one is wearing masks? — but overall the message is still very uplifting and makes for a beautiful song to enjoy while planning for a time when we can all be together again. Stay safe out there!

Listen to “Lockdown” by Koffee along with the official music video below:

Quotable Lyrics:

Where will we go
When di quarantine ting done and everybody touch road
Mommy, me go NASCAR
Pull up in a fast car
A nuh false start
Mek you and di boss par
I know you’re feeling me
You know I’m feeling you
So what now we fi do

Take my hand, follow me, and I’ll give you what you need, girl
Life is tough, take a puff, open up, see the world
See it through my eyes, looking down as I fly high
Flying no lower in the sky rise, I’m up in the clouds with the wi-fi

Jidenna Runs Down His African Heritage On “Black Magic Hour”

Jidenna

Jidenna

Jidenna drops a new single and video called “Black Magic Hour” in preparation of the release for his upcoming compilation & documentary “African On All Sides.”

As a “classic man” that’s always been about putting on for his African roots, GRAMMY-nominated singer/rapper Jidenna is back to make sure we know he’s on that same energy still with the release of his new single and video “Black Magic Hour.”

The traditional practice of African Voodoo heavily inspired both the visuals and track itself, with Jidenna seen floating with possessed eyeballs and even ndunga masks popping up as well. As FADER reports, the song will appear on Jidenna’s upcoming compilation project titled African On All Sides under Bullish Recordings later this year, and will even include an accompanying documentary. It should be a good watch based off this creative music video!

Listen to “Black Magic Hour” by Jidenna below, along with peeping the official music video as well:

Quotable Lyrics:

I’m from the long line of chiefs, I was made in their image
Grandfather married seven wives in the village
Never sold a slave, and the British couldn’t kill him
And they called it “Black Magic” when they baffled by the physics
Smart n****s are the white mans villain
I rocked these linens ‘for Wakanda looked appealin’
The best you rappers do is do a show, pay a visit
While I’m out here livin’, I’m in Kenya makin’ shillings
