Murder Inc. boss Irv Gotti really, really, really can’t wait for fans to hear his new “Brothers” collaboration with Kanye West. The hip-hop mogul has sent a friendly reminder to fans about the single’s premiere date.
Gotti went to Instagram Friday to promise July 2 is worth circling on the calendar.
This week, Gotti revealed Yeezy came into the picture for his “Tales” banger a couple years ago.
“As you guys know, with ‘Tales,’ I take existing songs and turn them into, like, a movie. When I approached Kanye back in October of 2017, I was like, ‘Yo, I wanna do something special for the culture. I love the hip-hop culture. I’m a huge, like, believer in the hip-hop culture and what it is and I want to do this for the culture.’ I know this sounds cliché-ish but it’s honest. I said, ‘Yo, let’s give them a new song. I’m going to make a two-hour movie to the song and it’ll be the season premiere.’ You know, Kanye rode out with me, man. He was like, ‘That’s a great thing.'” (TMZ)
Earlier this month, the “Tales” creator lit up Instagram with the huge announcement and also revealed music legend Charlie Wilson is featured on the anthem.
The same week, G.O.O.D. Music’s CyHi The Prynce revealed West had remained behind the scenes working on new albums set to arrive before fall.
Speaking with XXL, CyHi reveals that he and ’Ye have put their heads together in the studio to cook up some new heat for various projects, with one of those LPs being his next solo effort. “Me and [Kanye] are working on a few albums,” says CyHi. “So you’ll be getting them by the end of the summer. Also, my solo album as well. So, I’ve just been collecting all my pieces on the game board so when I present it, everybody sees it in a beautiful light. This is going to be five times better than my first album.” (XXL Mag)
