Bun B has teamed up with Big K.R.I.T. to give fans “something to smoke for 4/20.”
The collaborative effort, “Slow It Down,” makes for a smooth listen, with K.R.I.T handling the hook and the UGK vet unleashing polished bars that fit the theme of the laidback track wonderfully.
"Late night, when it's quiet and the grind slow,” Bun B spits. “When I just wanna just relax and let my mind go / I grab some kind dro and roll it up and light it / And sit back and try to not get too excited.”
In addition to dropping his latest single, Bun B also reminded fans that his next project, Return of the Trill, is currently in the works.
Last year, Harlem rapper Ro Ransom emerged to the forefront of the music industry’s “must watch” lists, with his Momentum EP since garnering over 22 million streams on Spotify, impressively since its October 2017 release.
Since the project dropped, the self-proclaimed Mystery Boy has been keeping busy in the studio, this weekend sharing his latest single, “Floetry.” The track, which features vocalist Kensei Abbot, shouts out Kelis and Lady Gaga, telling a tale of success, lust and, at the end of the day, just being human.
Of the song, Ro says, “I love this record. The bounce is crazy, my voice is irresistible and Kensei is just so much fun. Enjoy yourself a little! Mystery Boy has spoken."

After lending his talents to Jean Grae and Quelle Chris’ new album, Everything’s Fine, which dropped at the tail end of March, Your Old Droog has returned with a new off-the-top offering, titled “Live from NYC.”
During the four-minute freestyle, Droog goes in over an instrumental provided by Mono En Stereo, with both complimenting each other’s affinity for Golden Era aesthetic and authenticity. Over a boom-bap beat, the New York rapper smoothly raps his piece, casually drifting between calm self-assurance and melodic braggadocio.
“Me? I won’t be shocked when my work is in the MoMA,” he spits. “Plus I never cared much for certification / Word to my G.E.D and Kindergarten diplomas / Since then the poems as sick as lymphoma.”
Elsewhere in the track, Your Old Droog also shares gems about his place as a fixture in the independent hip-hop scene, spits game about the music industry and further reminds fans how he truly is a diamond in the rough (especially when it comes to today’s era of mumble rap).

The coveted season of summer releases is now upon us.
After announcing he’s joined the G.O.O.D Music roster earlier this year and shortly following up the news with his debut project GOOD Job, You Found Me, Chicago artist Valee is back with his latest.
The new song, “Womp Womp,” recruits beloved crooner Jeremih, with the two complimenting each other in a rather curious way over a Cássio-produced instrumental. While the track doesn’t quite qualify as a summer anthem, it does hold the potential to be a sleeper hit, scoring points for its minimalistic experimentation.
Check out Valee and Jeremih’s latest, “Womp Womp,” above.
