Russ Explains Why He’s Always On His Hustle On “Can’t Be Me”

Russ

Russ

Russ returns with his new single “Can’t Be Me” where he speaks about continuing his grind.

It’s about that time for your regularly scheduled Russ release. The independent artist never ceases to share new music with fans, regardless of his projects or anything else he may be working on. Russ practices what he preaches as he advises other artists to own the rights to their music and to take the reigns when navigating their careers. The Shake the Snow Globe rapper-singer has done just that and amassed a dedicated following by implementing his own rules to the industry.

On Friday (July 24), Russ returns with his smooth single “Can’t Be Me” where he shares why he can’t be the type of person who doesn’t handle business. Once again, Russ uses his music to self-reflect—something he often does in his artistry. “Shoutout to all the fans everywhere. Can’t wait to come see y’all again,” he wrote over on Twitter as his fans shared their thoughts on “Can’t Be Me.” Give Russ’s new single a few spins and let us know your thoughts.

Quotable Lyrics

Family can’t afford for me not to be poppin’ (Yeah)
B*tches in the mud, not in your wallet
So I gotta keep my mind right (Yeah)
So that my stars align (Yeah, ayy)
Mix a little passion with persistence (Uh)
Next thing you know you got listens (Uh)

Logic Takes It Back To Basics On “Soul Food II”

2020 Def Jam Recordings

2020 Def Jam Recordings

Following the release of his alleged swan song “No Pressure,” Logic lays his cards on the table on the bar-heavy “Soul Food II.”

Logic has all to often been the victim of living under a microscope, with fans and haters alike frequently deconstructing his music with a fine-tooth comb. It eventually seemed to stifle the man known as Bobby Tarantino, who decided to take a brief break to reshuffle. Now, fresh off some quality work at the homestead connecting with his young family, Logic has officially returned with No Pressure — as much a message to his loyal followers as it is to himself. And seeing as he’s got the ever-reliable No I.D. standing in his corner, we know our hero du jour is in capable hands.

No more does that become evident than on “Soul Food II,” an album highlight that finds Logic bodying not one, but two elaborately crafted instrumentals from 6ix, MTK, and Bobby himself. Stepping ably to the plate, Logic wastes little time in conjuring a vividly rendered world, rapping at a level sure to please his day ones. They don’t love you ’til you dead and then they call you profound, no matter how mainstream you was in the end, you still underground,” he spits. “That’s the truth, feeling close to the cliff, like Rick Dalton in the booth / money ain’t the key to happiness and this the proof, modern-day rap is like a golden era spoof.”

Check out the extensive track for yourself, especially if you need a reminder of what Logic is capable of as an emcee. And if you like what you heard, No Pressure can be streamed in its entirety right here.

No matter how mainstream you was in the end, you still underground
That’s the truth, feeling close to the cliff, like Rick Dalton in the booth
Money ain’t the key to happiness and this the proof
Modern-day rap is like a golden era spoof

You on the road, ain’t got no time for me
Mahalia, I hope you saving up that time for me

2 Chainz Hops On Board For A Remix To Brent Fayaiz’ “Fu*k The World”

2 Chainz slides onto Brent Fayaiz’ slow-burning “Fuck The World (Summer In London),” turning in a playful verse on the new remix.

Who’d have thought a song that opened with the lyric “fuck the world, I’m a walking erection” would actually be a smooth and vibey ride? Such is the case for Brent Fayaiz’s new remix to “Fuck The World (Summer In London),” which finds him connecting with the ever-reliable 2 Chainz. Not entirely different from the original version, which dropped in September of last year, this new version extends the runtime quite a bit thanks to Tity’s contribution, clocking in at nearly five minutes.

“Breath of fresh air from the bando, the bucket,” raps Tity, sliding onto the atmospheric instrumental with practiced swagger. “You was so far right headed, I catch up, I mustard, that saucy / not Ross but bossy, put her legs in the air — nine months after that car seat.” Though he’s certainly capable of kicking things up a few notches, 2 Chainz recognizes that the track doesn’t need dexterity, but rather conviction. Check it out for yourself.

QUOTABLE LYRICS

Crib in LA, I go next door to party
Real ones know weak links
Concerned ’bout mink links
Got a question for you, how you thick and you petite?

Gunna Unleashes “WUNNA” Deluxe With Future-Assisted “Street Sweeper”

Young Stoner Life Records/300 Entertainment

Young Stoner Life Records/300 Entertainment

Gunna releases the deluxe edition of his “WUNNA” album with tons of features, including “Street Sweeper” with Future.

On the list of high-profile releases from last night, Gunna dropped the long-awaited deluxe edition of his #1 album WUNNA with eight new songs, including features from Young ThugLil Uzi Vert, and more. Future pops up on “Street Sweeper,” which we’re highlighting here.

The new version of the album comes with a mismatched tracklist, making fans go on a wild goose chase to find the new songs. “Street Sweeper” arrives sixth on the project, packaged between “Feigning” and the ever-catchy “MOTW.”

Gunna starts the track off with his signature lackadaisical flow before Future jumps in for the second verse, transforming his voice and ordering the beat to deconstruct itself. He utilizes stylized vocal effects, making it sound as though he actually comes from another dimension.

This is just one of the stand-outs from the new deluxe edition of WUNNA. Let us know your favorite of the new songs in the comments.

Quotable Lyrics:

Hop on the Leer to Clearport, I bought it
Blood, sweat, and tears, I’m workin’ my hardest
Diamond shaped pears, my necklace retarded
Catch too many stares, you become my target
I’m stoned, I don’t care, don’t wanna be heartless
Be steppin’ on stairs, it look like a faucet
At least a whole M inside of my closet
We ball wit’ no gym, they must thought I lost it
