Bryson Tiller Joins Jack Harlow on ‘Thru the Night’

Bryson Tiller rolls with Jack Harlow on “Thru the Night,” the first single from his forthcoming project.

The bouncy jam, produced by The Understudy, finds the 21-year-old rapper teaming up with his fellow Louisville native over a sample of Usher’s “U Don’t Have to Call.”

The companion video, directed by Ace Pro and Nemo Achida, was shot at famed Louisville landmark, Robben’s Roost Skating Rink. Bryson and Jack lace up their roller skates during the fun-filled day before hitting the parking lot as the song switches up.

The Tiller collaboration was a dream come true for Harlow. “Trapsoul came out my senior year, and that’s all we were listening to in the ‘Ville,” he told Billboard. “I was riding around and playing that shit on repeat. He was the hottest thing going. I always dreamed of doing a song with him. Now that we got one, of course it means the world to me.”

In addition to readying the follow-up to last year’s Loose, Harlow will hit the road on “The Mission Tour.” The 29-date trek kicks off Oct. 18 in Chicago and wraps in his hometown of Louisville on Nov. 29.

YFN Lucci Attempts To Get Last Word Against Young Thug & His Girlfriend

In just a few short hours, YFN Lucci’s feud against Young Thug has picked up new implications. The two rappers had been going at each other in the shadows for years but after the release So Much Fun, Atlanta’s Lucci decided to call out the Slime God online. Since then, Lucc has been going up against Jerrika Karlae, Thug’s romantic partner, who he claims to have slept with numerous times. For what it’s worth, Karlae maintains that she has never been in the same bed as the rapper. Jeffery is keeping silent after a few threats were released from his mouth and now, it seems Lucc and Karlae are satisfied with just berating the other on live-streams, stories, and other means. In his attempt to close out the feud, Reginae Carter’s ex-boyfriend uploaded yet another belittling video where he calls Thug’s girl a liar.

The rapper recorded a clip himself smoking a blunt and showing f his jewelry, being sly and adding a small mention directed at Jerrika Karlae. “Lying bitch,” he wrote at the bottom the screen. Clearly, YFN Lucci is not willing to take a loss in this battle. Karlae has shut him down several times at this point. Now, we’re just working f simple he-say-she-say. Until receipts are thrown on the table, this is bound to just be a petty online back-and-forth.

Peep the latest update in this fiery beef.

Snoop Dogg Pays Tribute to Suge Knight on ‘Let Bygones Be Bygones’

As he gears up for his new album, Snoop Dogg is taking a trip down memory lane on his new song “Let Bygones Be Bygones,” a dedication to Suge Knight.

The West Coast veteran reflects on his relationship with Dr. Dre, Master P, and the former Death Row Records CEO. “Me and Suge cool as a motherfucka,” says Snoop on the intro. “I’m cool with Suge, I’m cool with Master P, Dr. Dre—I’m cool with everybody.”

Snoop, who was 22 when he released his Death Row debut Doggystyle, reflects on the ups (“This man changed my life / We made history together”) and downs (“Yeah, he did some bullshit, I’m admitting that”) of his relationship with the controversial rap mogul.

Despite their troubled past, he acknowledges the impact Suge had on his life and career. “Suge Knight, a real ni**a, man / Think about all the great shit that you did / Let bygones be bygones,” he says. “Death Row Records will go down in history, ni**a / We did that.”

The D-O-Double-G also credits himself for getting Suge to sign Tupac (“I was at the motherfu**in’ top when I hit my ni**a up and said, ‘You need to grab ‘Pac’”), celebrates his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and pays his respects to the late Nate Dogg.

Snoop is set to release his 17th album I Wanna Thank Me later this month featuring the title track and Swizz Beatz-assisted “Countdown.”

Hughes previously directed HBO’s 2017 miniseries The Defiant Ones, which profiled Dr. Dre and Interscope Records co-founder Jimmy Iovine. According to Deadline, the director secured a deal with the Tupac Estate to access released and unreleased recordings, writings and poetry in May.

Last year, Hughes recalled some of his dealings with the Tupac Estate for his HBO series during an interview with The Wrap.

“The Tupac Estate was — and I know them, they’re all old friends — but there was some stuff with him at the gun range that they were precious about,” he said. “My original cut is not the way it [eventually aired]. The family and the estate were really sensitive about taking things out of context when it came to weapons in his hands, you know? He was at a shooting range and it was pretty explosive in the original cut, and they were very, very, very adamant that we not do it that way.”

FX hasn’t revealed a premiere date for Outlaw. An official announcement is expected in the coming months.

Bryson Tiller’s Upcoming Album: Release Timetable Reportedly Revealed

In the last few weeks, Bryson Tiller has returned to the fold, releasing his newest single and teasing further drops. Before this point, all we had heard was that his album had been pushed back indefinitely to allow him time to seek perfection on it. Tiller is not the type artist who will release something just for the hell it. Instead the far-too-common quantity-over-quality approach, the crooner felt like he needed to make a masterpiece this time around. Fans were expecting Serenity to arrive late last year but the singer slowed down his fans by saying the work would be dropping “when it’s ready.” Now, it would appear as though that time is finally coming.

As noted by some serious sleuths over at , a quick look at Sony’s FYQ1 Earnings report will show you that Bryson Tiller has an album releasing within the next six months. This information should be taken with a grain salt — after all, the report has not been confirmed by Tiller or his team — however, since it’s listed on the ficial Sony website, this could very well be the real deal. In the Supplemental Information section the presentation, several artists are listed for imminent releases before February 2020. Rick Ross, G-Eazy, Miley Cyrus, and others are all written but one name stood out to fans: Bryson Tiller.

There is nothing specifically pointing to Serenity arriving before next year but if Sony believes it’s dropping within six months, we’re inclined to believe them. Time to get excited.

Rick Ross, YBN Cordae & Big Sean Conquer This Week’s "FIRE EMOJI" Playlist

What a time to be live, if your pseudonym was one Rick Ross, Big Sean, YBN Cordae, Chance The Rapper or Yung Bans. The latter three constituents garnered major props for delivering on their promise a strong debut LP. Big Sean and Rozay on the other hand, used their time and space to mark their re-emergence from a scale zero to ad infinitum. 

Submitted to our FIRE EMOJI playlist were the comeback efforts Rozay and Sean Don. Ross’ “Gold Roses” figures in the conversation thanks to Drake‘s reciprocity, owing back to “Money in the Grave” during the Toronto Raptors’ victory parade. Big Sean marked his return with “Single Again,” a song that refuses to be judged on its title alone. Moreover, Big Sean remains hopeful that moving away hedonistic in the advent loss, will do wonders for his craft. The early results have been favorable.

Rounding out our entrants this week are the aforementioned trio debutants, with a special exception to Chance The Rapper, whose Rookie Card realistically dates back to the 2016 season, as far as the eye can see. Kevin Gates was also fortunate enough to place within our ranks for the second week in a row, this time for his new single “Facts.” Be sure to follow all HNHH Spotify playlists below.
