T.I. – Bankrolls on Deck (ft. Young Thug, Peewee Roscoe, Shad Da God)

If you are looking for a straightforward song, look no further than T.I.‘s “Bankrolls on Deck” which comprises of Young Thug and Grand Hustle members, Peewee Roscoe and Shad Da God. The slow progressive tune produces a laid back appeal that presents a glassy featurette for fast spitter Young Thug. The collaboration opens a jar of Atlanta, Georgia and spews out a song of lyrical simplicity. This song is included on Grand Hustle associate, DJ MLK‘s sixth installment of the upcoming mixtape Goodnight Don’t Exist in ATL. We look forward to hearing more from the mixtape, but for now enjoy “Bankrolls on Deck”.

Jimmy Johnson – Trust Me

by .

PRODUCER: Zep Fire
PROJECT: N/A
LATEST RELEASE: Red Ferrari | Download

Prime and OVO affiliate Jimmy Johnson releases his new single “Trust Me”, which feels like a wave that constantly crashes into background vocals and beats. The twitching backdrop of voices transform the sorrowful introduction which in turn increases the pace of the song. Hostile openings seem common throughout most of Jimmy Johnson‘s tracks; and as the song progresses there is an immediate dip into liquidous insanity, also know as autotune. “Trust Me” sounds like the nemesis of Jimmy‘s song “Winters End“, a warmer and less disturbed track. There is not a lot of variation in “Trust Me”, but the Canadian rapper sure does make me feel some type of way. Check it out for yourself above.

Young Dolph – Pulled Up (ft. 2 Chainz & Juicy J)

by .

PRODUCER: Chill Go Hard
UPCOMING ALBUM: TBA
RELEASE DATE: 2015

Young Dolph‘s new single “Pulled Up” which features 2 Chainz and Juicy J, hits the audience with a seductive melody. The background seems hardcore and portrays a controlled image of buttloads of money and power. It’s the type of song that makes one want to get the gang together and make a movie. With a verse like “I’m laughing off the lot the way I’m laughing to the bank (ha-ha),” Juicy J’s feature is hilarious. Check it out for yourself above.
