Just nine months after dropping Stay Dangerous, the Compton rapper returns with his fourth album 4REAL 4REAL. In addition to the singles “Stop Snitchin” and “Go Loko” with Tyga and Jon Z, the 14 tracks include appearances from Meek Mill, Ty Dolla $ign, G-Eazy, Kamaiyah, Valee, Boogie, Arin Ray, and DaBaby, who guests on the remix to “Stop Snitchin.”
The album was originally set to arrive as a surprise release on April 12, but was delayed following the death of Nipsey Hussle. “When the shit happened with the homie, I’m like, ‘Damn. I can’t put my album out. I can’t be promoting this shit,’” YG told Big Boy on REAL 92.3.
Excuse my wack ass album rollout promotions, I ain’t been in the mood to do none of that shit since they took my brother! But “The Marathon Continues” – 4REAL 4REAL! WESTSIDE
The project, which was recorded prior to Nipsey’s death, closes with the tribute “My Last Words,” taken from YG’s speech at Nipsey’s memorial at Staples Center.
Some of the proceeds will benefit Nipsey’s children, 10-year-old Emani and 2-year-old Kross. “I put that ‘In Loving Memory of Nip’ on the album cover because I’m giving his kids a percentage of every song on the album,” said YG. “By time they get 18, from me, they gon’ have a bag.”
Ed Sheeran is not letting up. Fresh off his Justin Bieber collaboration “I Don’t Care,” which sits at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100, the British crooner delivers the follow-up, “Cross Me” featuring Chance the Rapper and PnB Rock.
On the throwback R&B jam, Ed shows his loyalty to the lady in his life (“If you cross her, then you cross me / Nobody’s coming close,” he sings). Chance, who married Kirsten Corley in March, pays homage to his wifey (“Better pay your respect to the queen / Gotta respect the HBIC”), while PnB lays down the hook.
“Cross Me” and “I Don’t Care” are among the 15 tracks set to appear on Ed’s upcoming album No.6 Collaborations Project. The star-studded collection will include even more collaborations with some of his favorite artists.
“Before I was signed in 2011, I made an EP called No.5 Collaborations Project,” he explained. “Since then, I’ve always wanted to do another, so I started No.6 on my laptop when I was on tour last year. I’m a huge fan of all the artists I’ve collaborated with and it’s been a lot of fun to make.”
No.6 Collaborations Project drops July 12. See the tracklisting below.
Following the release of “Your Peace” featuring Lil Baby, Jacquees debuts a video for his latest single “Who’s.”
The romantic clip co-stars Jacquees’ real-life girlfriend Dreezy. The Cash Money crooner plays a postal worker who is delivering the mail in a suburban neighborhood when he sees Dreezy and her boyfriend fighting. They end up flirting and exchanging numbers before a relationship blossoms, and Dreezy kicks her man to the curb.
“Who’s giving you all your love? Who’s bringing you all your pain? Who’s making sure that you straight?” asks Jacquees. “Yeah, you could get all of my love.”
