Spendin’ – [ILoveMakonnen] Ft. [Gucci Mane]

ILoveMakonnen has more hit records so far in his short career than most artists can get in their entire career, and he just released his latest smash record titled “Spendin” featuring Gucci Mane! I was extremely eager to see what this song would sound like when I saw the feature from Gucci but they truly did snap, ILoveMakonnen paved the way and created a heartlful & joyous feeling record, the Gucci Mane feature felt like the cherry on top!

Spendin’ – [ILoveMakonnen] ft. [Gucci Mane]

Ever since 2014, when his hit song, “Tuesday” first blew up, iLoveMakonnen has proved himself to be a natural hitmaker and the kind of artist who, regardless of what anyone else says, will always follow his own path. This is certainly an admirable quality to take into account when searching for new music, and today, heading back into the spotlight with a clear example of this trait, Makonnen is here to offer a new single titled “Spendin’” featuring Gucci Mane. Simplistic in its melodies yet endlessly entertaining, this track allows the two Atlanta natives to let loose creatively, placing an emphasis on their charismatic cadences as the track runs from the first second to the last. Both Makonnen and Gucci have a knack for finding just the right pockets in any given beat, and “Spendin’” is clear proof. That said, this track lets us know that iLoveMakonnen isn’t playing around in 2019, so be sure to check it out below and let us know what you think in the comments!

With State of the Art, he stacks his verses with quotable lyrics and effortlessly entertains throughout, keeping his 2018 win streak on an insuppressible rise.

Reel It In (Remix) – [Aminé] [Gucci Mane]

Ever since the release of Aminé’s incredible new project, ONEPOINTFIVE, I’ve been keeping the Portland representative’s music in heavy rotation. In my eyes, he’s two for two on full-lengths at this point, and with more than enough buzz around his name to keep the success rolling in, Aminé is here today to revisit the standout track, “Reel It In“, blessing it with a feature from none other than the legend himself, Gucci Mane. Just as you may have expected, this remix is a huge moment for Aminé and his fans alike. Hearing Gucci slide over some of the smoothest production of the year courtesy of LDG Beats and Tee-WaTT is a beautiful sight to see as a fan, and it acts as a testament to all of the well-deserved success the ONEPOINTFIVE has seen all year long. Aminé is going to be around for quite a while, so get used to it. Click play on the Gucci Mane-assisted remix of “Reel It In” at the link below!

Hopeless Romantic – [Wiz Khalifa] Ft. [Swae Lee]

Following the Cole Bennett-directed visuals for Real Rich and movie-like cinematic for the album track, Wiz Khalifa is back with another cut from Rolling Papers 2 with Swae Lee for Hopeless Romantic. The mellowed out track produced by Young Chop was a standout on the album that was brought to life courtesy of TK McKamy which see’s the duo in what looks like a fantasy of gigantic, clothless women.
