It’s something we’ve been seeing a lot lately: A rapper and a producer teaming up for a full collaborative album. That’s how every rap album used to be made, and it’s an unambiguously good thing. These team-ups tend to give rap albums a cohesiveness that they would’ve never otherwise had, and they give the impression … More »
Lil Uzi Vert carried a darkness on last summer’s Luv Is Rage 2. Just last month he released a music video in which he sits tied to a tree in front of an open grave. But it seems as if he’s on the upswing with his new song, “Mood,” produced by frequent … More »

(AllHipHop News) Another rapper-producer collaborative effort is on the way.
G Herbo was a guest on The Breakfast Club, and the Chicago spitter discussed teaming up with Atlanta producer Southside.
“I’m dropping an EP next week called Strictly For My Fans. That was something I just put together to show a token of my appreciation for the fans,” said Herbo. “Then I got a project coming with Southside, an album we’re gonna drop.”
He continued, “Then my [solo] debut album, Humble Beast. I don’t really have a date because I have so much that I’m working on.”
The “Lord Knows” rhymer also revealed he currently has over 150 songs recorded.
His year-long break from dropping a body of work is set to come to an end, and Herbo explained the hiatus to Angela Yee, Charlamagne Tha God, and DJ Envy.
“It’s all about timing for me. I want to be remembered. I want to be legendary,” stated the Cinematic Music Group representative. “I don’t want nobody to say, ‘Herb dropped this music and that sh*t was alright. He ain’t put his time into that. That ain’t the Herb I know.’ I think about that.”
In 2015, Herbo releasedBallin Like I’m Kobe. The mixtape featured Southside producing the track “Rollin.”
Southside’s production discography also includes work with Jay Z, Kanye West, Drake, Future, Meek Mill, Waka Flocka Flame, and more.
At this point, the now infamous siren made popular by 808 mafia/affiliates is basically warm honey dripping into my ear. When I first listened to “Hated On Me,” the high squeal forced my ears into “oh fuuuuck here we goooo” mode, my aural canals ignorant of its meaning and why its high vibrato feels so good, yet absolutely certain of its power to make any track a tour de force.
In any case, “Hated On Me” is doubly exciting, as it’s a reminder that Lil Durk’s musical reach now extends far beyond the confines of his native Chicago (in this case, all the way to ATL — with a Future cosign, at that [Fewtch’s magnum opus just enjoyed its one year anniversary, btw!]). Durk’s recruited an impressive list of artists/producers for his new album Lil Durk 2X (“Lil Durk Two Times”), which is great, because there’s really nothing I love more than sifting through a healthy variety of signature watermarks and guest verses riddled with ad-libs. Listen to the Southside-produced, Future-featuring track (and that inherently wonderful siren) below.
