Did NBA YoungBoy Beat Jack Rapper Leroy Brown?

You may remember we wrote about rapper Leroy Brown, who was a one-time collaborator with A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie; perhaps he even had a bigger hand than we know about behind the scenes. We came up with another story, though, while digging around. He, along with producer Cornut, was [allegedly] beat jacked by NBA YoungBoy—also professionally known as YoungBoy Never Broke Again.

The rapper, who’s 38 Baby mixtape dropped last October, featuring Kevin Gates, Boogie, and more, has risen to become one of rap’s brightest young talents; however, that may be in jeopardy. He was arrested in Texas before a gig last year and is currently locked up and being charged with two counts of attempted first-degree murder and being held on $200,000 bond. The charges, though, could land him in jail for life.

I digress; as I mentioned, we stumbled upon the fact that NBA’s record, “Until Then,” actually jacked the Cornut-produced instrumental for Leroy Brown’s record, “Shooting To The Stars,” that appeared on his Ego Trippin’ mixtape. Further, he never acknowledges either of them nor credits the producer for the record, which to date has received well over 500k spins on YouTube alone.

Tau Makes Amends on New Single “Indecisive”

If Ye has taught us anything with his latest rant its that holding onto things that don’t sit right on your soul can bubble over. This is partly the mantra behind Baton Rouge rapper Tau’s latest single “Indecisive,” featuring OGI.Ejay. Over the bouncy piano bop, Tau makes amends with a former flame, despite his past transgressions aiding the relationship’s dissolution.

 
Tau has been dropping some admirably dope music in 2018 — which includes six singles and 2 EPs — that is more than worth a spin. With the kind of hit potential this kid has, it’s more a matter of when than if.

Check out Tau’s’s “Indecisive” below.

Krewz Links With YBN’s Migo Domingo For Blazing New Single

Straight out of scenic Vancouver BC, self-produced/engineered artist Krewz is on the verge of taking his career to the new plateau. With a new mixtape dropping the top of 2019, and a tour being planned as we speak, he’s taking the success he’s seen thus far and pumping up the notoriety. 

“I started by buying my own equipment, and learning most of my skills online,” he tells AAHH from his studio in BC. “I started rapping with friends … and [from there] just worked on developing my craft. Back when I first started, I had a set up in my basement, and I was locked in the studio 24/7.”

As he denotes, that experience helped him realize this was the path he was meant to take — and not just as a hobby, but a full-blown lifestyle.

“I want my mixtape to open up new avenues for potential features with other artists,” he says, switching gears and looking ahead to 2019. With his first single from the project, “Adapt,” an anthem for anyone on the heavy grind regardless of the circumstances, he’s setting the tone in a heavy way.

“I’m like an alien, yeah I adapt,” he says on the chorus, emphasizing the malleable nature of his money mission. The self-produced radio-ready banger features YBN’s own Migo Domingo, who is coming off of a huge summer mixtape release that featured his single “Dog Her” alongside his labelmate and childhood friend Offset.

It’s a lateral movement if you’ve been following his movements over the past year, as he’s been dropping a heap of bubbling singles via his SoundCloud account. Songs like “No Time,” which wound up on World Star, have been helping him click, setting the stage for this new project.

It’s a good look associating his brand with YBN — after a few spins, with it’s super catchy instrumental — we’re sure you’ll agree worth a spot on whatever playlist you have access to.

25-year-old military vet Pipe — representing Alexandria, Lousiana — is on a mission to be great. “I’m still currently in the learning process of becoming great but just wait I ain’t lying,” he tells AAHH. Though he’s on the verge of dropping his debut, don’t think that his music is in anyway beginner.

“This is me the EP is my very first project so I’m super excited for the world to hear it,” he says. “As the title says, it’s me.” Not unlike a title like Reasonable Doubt, which Hov famously denoted took his whole life up to that point to create, the seven-song project is set to fully introduce the world to his story.

As he explains to us, his biggest influence getting into the game was none other than Lil Wayne; “I’m from Louisiana so of course my biggest influence is lil Wayne and what Young Money was when the album dropped.

“I would love to work with Weezy, Dj Khaled, Drake, 88 Glam, Travis Scott, Chris Brown, Big Sean … the list goes on,” he reveals when discussing career aspirations with our staff.

For now, we’ll get our first taste of what his collective vision is on January 4 when the EP drops. In the meantime, he has some hearty appetizers in his Soundcloud that give you an idea of the potential he has. Check out one of our faves, “iRun,” below.

Gen Drops A New Single From His “Y15946” EP

Often it can take an artist hitting a low point in order to turn their lives around for the better. This is definitely the case for Chicago MC Gen. the 19-year-old is riding high following the release of his debut EP Y15946 — a title that references his prisoner number.

Following his release from prison, after a 19-month sentence in Illinois for possession of a firearm, his life has taken a pivot towards a brighter path, and his EP is an embodiment of this sentiment — a true celebration of life. His latest single “vLONE” is a combination of a raspy chorus, that bookends rapid-fire verses, that ride the bass-fueled instrumental by OG Webbie. The chorus is hella catchy; the end of the song when the beat drops out, you can hear his chains clanking as he repeats it one final time.

Check out Gen’s “vLONE,” below.
