Today, Academy Award-winning rapper and songwriter/producer Juicy J shares his new song, “Ballin” featuring Kanye West. The track premiered earlier today on Zane Lowe’sBeats 1 show as the “World Record” of the day. “Ballin” is taken from Juicy J’s upcoming sophomore album and is now available at all digital partners.
The dynamic track is an ode to the opulent and features production from TM88, Crazy Mike and Juicy J himself. Juicy J and Kanye West first teamed up back in 2006 for a remix of Three 6 Mafia’s “Side to Side.” “Ballin” is the result of a mutual admiration and respect of each other’s artistry, and is certainly not the last collaboration the two have on the way. A video for the song is set to be revealed tomorrow exclusively on TIDAL, after having been screened at an exclusive event earlier this week in Los Angeles.
The song is the latest to be taken from Juicy J’s sophomore full-length, Rubba Band Business: The Album, which is set for release this coming winter on Columbia Records/Kemosabe Records. The album also includes previously shared single “No English” featuring Travis Scott. It comes off the heels of a resent successful run of hard-hitting mixtapes, including #MUSTBENICE, which was released last week to much attention. Following the success of his 2013 solo debut, Stay Trippy, Rubba Band Business: The Album manages to edge his music to new creative heights, adding yet another forward-thinking notch to his robust resume.
