Murder Inc. CEO Irv Gotti is keeping Throwback Thursday thriving. The hip-hop mogul has done his part by sharing a vintage pic of Ruff Ryders leader DMX.
On Thursday, Gotti shared a flashback to his touring days alongside X.
A few weeks ago, Gotti and Kanye West‘s much-hyped “Brothers” collaboration finally premiered during his BET “Tales” premiere.
After teasing the new track as part of BET’s Tales last month, Kanye West has finally revealed his new track alongside longtime collaborator Charlie Wilson, entitled “Brothers.” Produced by Irv Gotti and Murder Inc producer Seven (Channel 7), the track debuted on the show’s two-hour season premiere late Tuesday night. Reminiscent of the “Big Brother” sound from Ye’s Graduation era, the song relishes in much of the style that early Kanye fans have craved from the artist’s current and future projects. (Hypebeast)
In early July, Ye’s wife Kim Kardashian went to Twitter to plug BET’s “Tales” season premiere and remind followers “Brothers” will finally get released.
Recently, 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)
