MC Eiht Releases “Courted In” Video Featuring Dave East

unnamed 1 3

GEAH!!

For two decades MC Eiht has been one of hip-hop’s most recognizable voices in hip-hop; and undisputedly one of Compton’s finest originators and emcees.

A straight menace, MC Eiht burst onto the scene with Compton’s Most Wanted Music To Driveby.  Released just months after the LA Riots, Music To Driveby was a manifesto for the nihilism, frustration and anger that permeated the region and is universally hailed as a Gangsta Rap classic. Eiht’s follow up solo releases, We Come Strapped, was certified Gold and peaked at #1 on the Billboard charts and his sophomore solo project Death Threatz debuted at #3 on the Billboard Charts.

Lil Baby Becomes First Artist in 2020 to Go 2X Platinum With ‘My Turn’

Screen Shot 2020 09 11 at 6.42.57 PM

Lil Baby called his shot with My Turn, declaring 2020 as his own. The grammy-nominated rapper has seen a monumental year following the release of the lauded and chart-dominating album. Today, My Turn went RIAA-certified double platinum, making him the first and only artist of 2020 to reach that mark. The album is now the #1 selling and #1 steaming album in the US this year with 4 Billion streams to date. His catalog has reached 20 Billion streams globally and he was just named Vevo’s Top Performing Hip-Hop Artist of 2020. His powerful protest anthem “The Bigger Picture” which is one of, if not the most important song of the year has reached #1 on Urban Radio, his 7th #1 in the format. 

In celebration of reaching these career-defining milestones and as a “thank you” to his fans, Lil Baby has shared the music video for “Forget That” feat. Rylo Rodriguez. Rylo is signed to Lil Baby’s 4PF label, where Lil Baby plays a major role in shaping the careers of burgeoning new artists. 

Earlier this year, Lil Baby graced the cover of Rolling Stone, tied Prince and Paul McCartney for Billboard Hot 100 hits, saw his February #1 release of My Turn return to the top of the Billboard 200 three months later, and spent 5 weeks at #1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart (tying Taylor Swift for most weeks atop the list in 2020). With such a rapid rise and a relentless stream of critical and commercial hits, it’s clear that Lil Baby is one of the greatest and most important success stories in hip-hop. At 25, he has been one of the most dominant and critically acclaimed names in rap since his first release in 2017, and with just 3 years under his belt, it’s clear his run is far from over.

Big Sean Says His Label Did Not Support the Release of ‘Deep Reverence’

Big Sean red carpet power billboard

On Monday, Big Sean announced the release date for his upcoming album, Detroit 2. The album is set to drop next Friday, September 4th. Shortly after, he dropped the first latest single entitled “Deep Reveranc”e, featuring late rapper, Nipsey Hussle. In the candid track, Big Sean talked about his battles with anxiety, mental health, and more. He added that Nipsey Hussle’s death led him to reach out and reconcile with Kendrick Lamar. In addition, he eluded to losing a baby with girlfriend Jhene Aiko.

While the track was well-received due to his ability to bear his truth on the song, he did not get that initial backing from his label. In a post and delete, Sean Don took to Twitter.

“My label (a few people there, not the whole label) thought it wasn’t smart to put this song out ahead of my album, they told my team I should hold on to it. “They still supported my decision in the end tho.”

“My heart and my gut was saying not only do people deserve that song right now, I felt like hearing nips voice, his presence and the energy of the song itself was needed and deserved it’s own moment!” he says. “Ever since that Verses w/ Hit-Boy n Boi 1da I wanted to drop it since then…” 

The “Bounce Back” rapper has been signed to GOOD Music/Def Jam throughout his entire career. Despite the lack of label support, e went on to thank his supporters for the love shown to “Deep Reverence.”

The single sets a truthful tone for the forthcoming, Detroit 2.

Big Sean Says Nipsey Hussle’s Death Led to Squashing Feud with Kendrick Lamar

Big Sean Says Nipsey Hussle's Death Led to Squashing Feud with Kendrick Lamar

Big Sean’s “Deep Reverence” single was jammed pack with a lot. The early release brought fans a long-awaited verse from Nipsey Hussle and shared details on a miscarriage with Jhene Aiko but also highlighted the simmering beef between him and Kendrick Lamar.

The two rappers had a timid relationship, which sparked way back during the “Control” days and lasted across time with little shots sent back and forth, but the death of Hussle let Sean know it was time to bury the friction.

“After what happened to Nipsey, I reached out to Kendrick
It wasn’t even no real issues there to begin with
Lack of communication and wrong information
From people fueled by their ego, it’s like mixin’ flames with diesel”

Big Sean on “Deep Reverence”

Previously, Big Sean spoke on his beef with Kendrick Lamar when talking to Joe Budden during a Pull Up, Genius points out. “Me and Kendrick got a history of songs… When this whole Big Sean, Kendrick beef was going on, it was something I wish I would have spoken up about because there was nothing,” he said at the time.

You can hear the entire “Deep Reverence” below.
