Lil Yachty’s first release that propelled him from McDonald’s line cook, to platinum selling artist was his song “One Night.” The song was featured in a meme video that then went viral, sending Yachty on the path to stardom. He then built an entire mixtape around the song to hit the demand of his newly gained fan base. This album was called, “Lil Boat.”
The tape went crazy within the hip-hop, and even the pop communities, selling crazy numbers, with his follow up album, “Teenage Emotions,” tanking in comparison. His fans wanted the old, fun Lil Yachty back.
Yesterday, the rapper went to social media with some good news for these fans,
“I would like to be remembered as somebody who has changed the world in a positive way, in a social, sexual sense, and I’d be very happy with that. I’m a kid who dreamed the dreams, and made them come true.” Hefner told CNN in an interview.
Chicago Native Hugh Hefner passed away last night on September 27th, 2017. Hugh founded Playboy Magazine in 1953 with the first publication featuring a nude Marylin Monroe. After putting his furniture up as loan collateral and borrowing some money from his family, Hefner was able to build PlayBoy into an international Icon and empire, far beyond what anyone thought it could be.
Hefner was a genius of entrepreneurship and marketing, turning his brand into a magazine, a fashion, and even a lifestyle. His legacy will be forever remembered and looked upon as one of the greatest and most genuine businessmen of all time.
Post Malone finally linked up with 21 Savage to give us the new hit single, “Rockstar.” The song is supposed to be apart of his much anticipated sophomore album, “Beerbongs and Bentleys.” Producer credits go to Tank God and Louis Bell. The duo are coming off each of their own successful singles, Malone with, “Congratulations” and 21 Savage with “Bank Account.”
The Beat is synth heavy with trap drums and dirty south hats flowing with the groove of the hook by Post Malone. 21 Savage drops a “Talking” like flow that we’re used to from him. Once again Malone gives us a club banger without it being a shouting, short versed, hype song. The song has an intoxicating feel to it with echoed sounds and drowsy voices that makes you feel that “2 am in the club” feeling.
The song’s short term success is attributed to the outstanding construction of the song itself. It will certainly only get better with time, and it gives us a great preview of what is to come with “Beerbongs and Bentleys.” I give the song a 9/10, but don’t just listen to me, give “Rockstar” by Post Malone ft. 21 Savage a listen below and decide for yourself!
