Lafayette and Baton Rouge come together on Yung Juko’s slapping new single, “You Know How That Go” Ft. Boosie Badazz. Juko’s melodic, sing-song rhyming style offsets Boosie’s down and gritty spitting pattern perfectly in this ‘straight for the streets’ hood narrative. Video was shot by Chuck StarFilms.
Yung Juko first burst on to the scene a few years ago with his street smash, “Trust Nobody”, which went on the garner over 5M views. He followed that up with “Learn From the Streets”which drew another 1.5M. Juko has been quiet for a minute, or so we thought, but in truth he’s just been in that lab cooking up bangers. You know how that go…….
Boston George not only talks the talk, he walks the walk. No wonder then that Jeezy grabbed him for his CTE imprint when he burst on to the scene as a rapper. What many may not know is that George started in the industry as CEO of his own label, AMG, which he will rep to the dirt. AMG was responsible for the success of gifted Houston wordsmith, Marcus Manchild, as well as some of Killa Kyleon’s finest offerings. When neither offered up the work ethic that BG thought his investment deserved, he decided to show them how it’s done and set about marketing himself as an artist, with notable success.
Last week saw the release of “Blow Talk”, Boston’s latest project with cameos from label head Jeezy and fellow trap soldiers Boosie, Dave East and Young Greatness. This week he is following that up with a glimpse in to a more personal side of his life and his very humble beginnings in the form of a 12-minute documentary of sorts entitled “Tru Story.” Watch George’s rags to riches story below and be sure to give that “Blow Talk” a spin as well.
Houston’s next up, Dat Boy, just dropped a new DJ Scream-hosted tape called “Too Talented To Be Bullshittin” on LiveMixtapes and the title alone should make you take notice. If that’s not enough though, todays offering from that project has Boosie BadAzz all up in it and the two combined are straight fire. Haters are a running theme in rap and the video for “Make Em Mad” runs with it; flaunting as it does, everything our intrepid heroes have that you don’t.
All them broads you can’t have, all that talent you don’t posses and all them watches, rings and chains will just make you sick. Even Johnny Dang makes an appearance but not so sick that you won’t want to keep bumping it. You know what they say, hate the player not the game. Dat Boy‘s project also features Z-Ro, Doughboy & Sauce Walka and fire boardwork from none other than Zaytoven.

Philly rapper Gillie Da Kid is back on the scene with a brand new joint titled “Im Da Man”, featuring Boosie Badazz. The “King of Philly” teams up with the Baton Rouge native for a classic hood banger produced by hit-maker Coney Gurl. After dropping his first ever album “Welcome 2 Gilladelphia” late last year, Gillie Da Kid says it was time to drop some new music and what better way to do that than with a new record with Boosie Badazz.
“I had already recorded the record and I wanted to get a feature on it, and I thought ‘who else is the man in their city?’ I thought of Boosie and we made it happen. I personally booked studio time in Atlanta and dropped off the record so he could record his part on it. As soon as I heard his verse, I said ‘this b*tch is fire!’ This is a classic Boosie verse…this is going down as an all time classic verse from Boosie Badazz”, says Gille Da Kid.
The two rappers have endured similar struggles throughout their lives, from growing up on the streets to serving time in prison, and now Boosie is recovering from surgery to fight kidney cancer, but both have been strong enough to survive and keep doing what they do best – dropping hot music. “I wish [Boosie] a speedy recovery and I salute him. He’s still working even though he’s been through a lot. We both have”, notes Gillie.
Now with a new street anthem on his hands, the King of Philly wants his fans everywhere, no matter what they do or who they are, to feel empowered, like they are Da Man when they listen to his new record. With new singles and a potential new mixtape or album up next, this is just the beginning of what Gillie Da Kid has in store for the new year.
